I have always been fascinated with the thought of what really happens when a person dies… Western society has this firm understanding that birth is the beginning of life and death is THE END. A lifetime is all you get. Once you are dead you are completely gone. But is this what really happens? Albert Einstein stated once:  “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.” So I thought about this statement for a quite some time.

We agreed on the following top 10 tips for a happy…

The first thing buddhism teaches are the 4 noble truths: Life is full of suffering Suffering has a reason Suffering has an end (thank God for this one) There are ways to end the suffering and reach enlightment The deeper meaning of these simple statements is that life is a cycle, a series of good and bad events, related to each other and constantly changing and evolving. The way for any person to achieve peace, inner happiness and full acceptance of the nature of things is to realize the infinite state of the mind and to let go of everything (attachments,…
