The Road to Astral Projection

 We are in a fast paced world now – where we eat in a hurry, sleep in a hurry, and wake up in a hurry and rush to work in a hurry. Amidst all this frenzy, little do we care about our physical well being and mental well being? Like they say the face is the index of the mind, we fail to understand that our aging and dull faces just mean that our mind is tired. Only when our own doctors and physicians tell us to get on to some relaxation techniques, do we realize that we have been ignoring the most important organ of our body – the mind.

Restaurant Quality Seafood Stews in Your Home Kitchen

I grew up in Portland, Oregon, which meant that the Pacific Coast was just a two hour drive away; it was very near, but still too far to go very often.  When my family did go, it was always a big deal, and we would pack up the car with beach blankets and towels for laying out on, kites and Frisbees for playing with, and buckets and spades for sand castle construction.  We would spend a few hours on the beach, but the Oregon Coast is a chilly place even at the height of summer, and so my favorite part of any trip was heading to one of our favorite restaurants, and warming up with delicious Read more
