You don’t know it yet, but you have been trained from a very young age to believe a lot of myths about the martial arts by watching movies and TV. You have learned quite a few facts which are not facts at all, but rather are completely false beliefs that the average person believes at such a deep level that they never think to question them. And when these beliefs are challenged, they feel an instant confidence in defying the challenge.

Our stomach is a factory to churn and burn food – an efficient workhorse of an organ. In yoga, this corresponds to the Heat center or the Manipura chakra. In association with the Intestines etc., it comprises the digestive system that gives the nutrition one needs.
With the "colds" season in full bloom and "allergy-time" on the horizon, I just had to tell you of a natural technique that thousands use to keep their colds, headaches and allergies far away.

The one thing that is constant is change. How much our world has changed in the last 100 years. This accelerated living most of us experience- fast cars, fast talking, cell phones, always on the move, always thinking, always doing- may be a reason that yoga has become so popular.

So you've missed a period, and had been wondering about it, when this nauseating feeling also starts troubling you. Then, the urine test comes out positive.

One of the parents in my neighborhood knows that I used to be a karate instructor. She told me the other day that her son was being bullied at school. Every now and then he was saying something unpleasant to someone, and then he would get tackled to the ground and pinned or hit a few times and come home with a black eye. She was very upset about it and wanted to know if I would teach her son karate to put a stop to it.
Thought is the Master of us all - a good thought is a good master and a bad thought is a bad master.
Good thought uplifts, makes the mood brighter, and makes us feel on 'top of the world'.
Bad thoughts are like a sack full of stones tied to us, pulling us down at every stage, overcoming us with lethargy, disinterest and even violent aggression. Hostile thoughts are deeply destructive even if contained within - they 'eat' us up by sapping our energy and vitality.
