Conscious Living
“What exactly is consciousness,” someone asked me recently. “Well,” I replied, “it is what we are supposed to be developing deep within our inner being.” This started an interesting exchange of thoughts.

Although scientists are trying desperately to find the “God Spot,” it remains as elusive as Ether, spoken about by the Ancient Greek Philosophers. However, consciousness is what life is all about. Different states of consciousness help to identify the innermost part of being, connecting one to the essence — very much like a drop of honey, clearly the same as the source, just different in quantity.

When we change levels of consciousness, we influence existing memories stored in the collective unconscious, spoken about by Carl Jung. What is stored in memory, once deleted, is no longer there.

Thoughts and words are definitely stored in our inner being. They change our perceptions, influence our actions and determine our history. Just imagine what it would be like, if a group of people suddenly recognized how sacred life is, and began acting in unison? Would this not change the consciousness of the group, and in turn affect the consciousness of the globe as well?
Chaos Theory describes the effects of a butterfly fluttering its wings on one side of the world, but rarely do we consider the effects bombs have, when dropped mercilessly on the planet. Too busy counting up money, humans lose sight of the greater picture; knowledge that brings wisdom and insight.

When able to acknowledge the sacred, nourish and respect it in our everyday lives, change will come to our inner being and in turn to the being of the world in general. This is a quest and a chance to rewrite history. Memories after all, contain the elusive elixir, prized by the alchemists of old — this is nothing more valuable other than clarified consciousness vibrating at a golden frequency.

As old systems collapse, human kind must reevaluate their position on this planet and readdress the needs of a human race wanting to evolve. In the past, people revered nature, stood in awe of her and believed that there was a Great Spirit that held everything together. Nowadays we believe we are invincible, and that we have mastered the forces of nature. Perhaps some of us have, but in the end result we can no longer find excuses for the millions of people who are homeless or who die of malnutrition. Whilst some hoard treasurers, others look for scraps to survive on. This complex world of different species fighting for survival is the breeding ground of consciousness.

The world challenges us continuously to awaken through disintegration, to integrate the many changes at different levels and to begin living consciously in order to bring about a sense of well being and achievement to community living. We may no longer stand passively on the sidelines, criticizing how people live their lives, until we have perfected the way we live our life. There is a need to reestablish connections in communities, to learn from the Ancient Egyptians that money and goods do not find their way into the invisible world, but rather diminish as does the human body, no matter how much we try to wrap it up in protective layers. The Egyptian Pharaohs certainly left us a message in their artifacts strewn across the land, but how conscious are we when we walk down the overgrown paths of the past, to glimpse at how great civilizations inevitably crumbled.

This is the way of the world, that the tide will come up to shore bringing with it the splendor of the sea, but it shall also wash back, taking what it has given, back into its center.

Changing hatred to love, we can heal the wounds of yesteryear. If we make an effort, we can recognize that each and every one of us, share a planet called Earth and that it will not be here forever. We can show gratitude for the beauty that surrounds us, and pay homage to love by trying to become as balanced as we can be. After all, is this not awakening to the consciousness that washes over us, bringing a sense of awe for the brilliance in life? We need to become conscious of the raging seas and the quiet waters that flow within us. We need to become aware of the potential and possibilities that lie within us. When we begin to utilize these inner resources, then we will create a different world and begin to live in harmony with nature. Then perhaps we can honestly say that we are living consciously.

5 Reasons Hawaii Is The Best State For Singles
At first glance, everything about Hawaii screams romance: the moon sitting delicately over rolling green hills, palm trees swaying gently in the breeze, candlelit dinners beside a purring ocean … ugh. The islands, it seems, could be a single person’s worst nightmare, especially during Single’s Appreciation Day — er, we mean February 14.

But before you swear off the Aloha State for good, we suggest you take another look at what the islands have to offer. Below, consider five reasons Hawaii is the best state to be single in.

1. It’s easy to find beautiful secluded areas, perfect for “me” time.
Hawaii is marketed to couples, but if you look past the tourist-laden hot spots — i.e., beaches near hotels, advertised hikes, and pretty much anywhere in Waikiki — you’ll find many hidden gems that offer perfect isolation. When you’re alone, surrounded by the islands’ natural magnificence, you’ll have the much-needed headspace to work on your most important relationship: the one with yourself.

2. Traveling nomads and adventurers are aplenty.
Googly-eyed couples come to Hawaii for a week or two and stay at resorts. But the islands’ laid back culture, adorable small towns and world famous waves attract surfers, adventurers and free-spirited yogi types for month-long forays. These (insanely attractive) wanderlusting singles are in search of good times and good vibes, and they can be found in hostels, camp sites and pretty much any beach that hasn’t been featured in Condé Nast Traveler.

3. Endless physical activities keep your endorphin levels soaring.
Ok, ok, we can’t promise that you won’t run into at least one beachside wedding or canoodling couple, but we can promise you that you won’t even care. Hawaii’s abundance of adventures will keep you on your feet, get your adrenaline pumping, and keep you positive. Enjoy the extra boost of endorphins as you look out into the stunning vistas at the top of a challenging hike or finish a few laps against the ocean’s current. Studies show that anaerobic exercise, which includes sprinting and strength-based activities, promotes the production of endorphins, making you feel good with a natural “high.”

4. Spirituality-centered culture will encourage you to appreciate alone time.
Living with aloha is a common practice in the Hawaiian islands and, while it can be interpreted in many different ways, it embodies the idea of “living joyously in the present”. This infectious spirit will remind you that true happiness is a choice to be conscious of the present moment and to express love to everyone around you — not just a significant other.

5. The ocean is a naturally meditative place.
We’ve said it before: your brain on the ocean reaps a number of health benefits. Studies show that the lull of the shores splashing on the sand can trigger peaceful memories in your brain, bringing you back to a more mellow state. There are also high levels of magnesium in the water which helps to maintain a healthy nervous system, leaving you with a happy, stress-free brain. But more importantly, although not completely backed by science, is the view — what’s not to love about a cerulean shoreline?
