Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, “Every calling is great when greatly pursued.” In all the things you do, greatness comes from being determined to achieve greatness from the very beginning. When you put your entire self into everything you do, you reach your full potential. Love everything you do. Even the monotonous, daily tasks that you are confronted with, even the tasks you absolutely detest, love them all as though you’d rather do nothing else. An individual who works as though they would rather be doing anything else will create a product that appears just as such. One’s best work will never come from this mindset. Strive to achieve your best work in all the things you do. Be proud of every mundane, minute task you have ever been...

Religion vs. Spirituality

What’s the difference between religion and spirituality? Well, often the two are intertwined, and both are paths to God or a Higher Being, but there is a difference. Religion is, in essence, applied spirituality. Where spirituality knows no specifics, religion has a defined path and structure. One can be “spiritual” without committing to a religion.

Spirituality leads you to the greater you. There are many different paths within spirituality, and who is to say which one is the best? Spirituality is what you make...

The Modern Relevance of Ancient Spirituality

Spiritual practices like those of the Kambalathu Nayakars, as mentioned in The Egyptian Code, are integral parts of any and every society or civilization. Even the most basic of civilizations exhibit some kind of interest or belief about the unknown, the afterlife, and that which is bigger than ourselves. For centuries, nay millennia, people have been connected to each other by their spiritual beliefs; it is a point of commonality. Furthermore, during all these millennia, these individuals have lived their lives according to their beliefs and have built and expanded their civilizations and made them what they are today governed almost entirely by their spiritual beliefs. Almost every great conquest can in some way be related back to religion. So it’s only...
