Interesting; three things. I'll be researching this. I've heard of this "attracting things appropraite for you" concept. I'm sure I've done it before without knowing how or why. I simply marveled at it not understanding or even knowing how to begin. Learning to trust it seems my next task. Technically, this seems easier than discipline. However, trust or lack of it seems the result of so many people who disappoint. Disillussioned, the fear begins eroding trust in other things. This must stop. I've wisdom enough to know when to trust and this article helped to this end. Namaste.

is nice to be here but i want to go have a myspace done


I can so relate to Maurita, since I am from South Africa, and have felt a certain guilt over being able to leave, while others are still there. Reading this has brought me some peace. Things are the way they are supposed to be, and there is little point in wasting my energy in the negativity of guilt. Thank you.


I got out of bed a few minutes ago. 1am in the morning. I couldn't sleep because I feel anxious and fearful. Living in South Africa and right now feeling like the country is about to fall apart. Crime, energy crisis, economy affected, litercy and education in state. Worrying about where I can run, taking my family with me. I came to the computer and just typed in 'give me strength' and like a gift from the universe, your article was on top of the page. It has given me a wonderful perspective and instantly made me feel so much more at peace. Thank you for your wisdom and for sharing it.


This is great clearly explains the drama of the three guans and how not to get caught up in the drama


Very nice article, thank you. I've sent it to a few rajasic friends, and I believe they will also appreciate it :)

Thank you for this article. I'm going through particularly rough times and it helped me see things in a different and more positive perspective.


This article is well written and explains our core inner strength simply and well. I have just started meditating and have felt this 'sattvic' energy which is such a contrast to my normal 'rajasic' energy. This awareness has changed my reactions for the better and made me more effective.


I love the site. Since I have move to a state where I do not know anyone and no longer have a spiritual core group, I use this site as one of my spiritual touch stone.
Thank you!


The new site looks great!!!! I know it must have taken lots of strength to get it all done. Congrats.
