Inner Engineering – The secret to life and happiness

Sadhguru

I was reading the other day and came across the term “Inner Engineering” and I became attracted to what it could mean. Inner Engineering sounds like it could summarize a lot of what we’re trying to do on this website so I started researching what others were saying about this term.

It turns out that these two words have been commandeered online by an Indian guru named Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a yogi and supposed visionary, and founder of The Isha Foundation. He has created books and online courses and all manner of other tools and solutions to empower you to create the life you want.

Inner Engineering can help you create profound joy in your life if you just pay $150 and complete his 7 day training course. This simple course is designed to help us transcend suffering, train our mind, and become effective “creators of our lives”.  It will help us navigate our lives with ease.  It is a “method for life, a technology, a science—an inner science, based on ancient yogic sciences—for personal empowerment, inner peace and joy.”

Holy shit! Right? This guy is selling the secret to life! Continue reading “Inner Engineering – The secret to life and happiness”

How mindful meditation can help you escape from anxiety and depression

meditation051817-web

There have been times in my life when I’ve fallen into depression. It’s hard to admit it when it happens. It’s a slow decent and the signs can be subtle when you’re the one that’s stuck in a rut. Learning how to get out of it when it happens is even tougher.

Depression begins slowly within normal lives

When I was in my mid 30’s I had a lot to deal with. I had just quit my job to start my own business and most of my day was stressful. I honestly didn’t know what to expect during my workday and I had a lot of anxiety about the future. Continue reading “How mindful meditation can help you escape from anxiety and depression”

A body is made in the kitchen, not in the gym

Exercise is essential but it will only get you so far

For most of my life I’ve worked under the idea that, to lose weight you had to exercise. When I was young I rode my bike, I used all the machines at the gym, I lifted free weights, I ran, I played sports, I did sit-ups, pushups and pull-ups. You name it, I did it and I looked pretty good for it.

As I got a little older and eventually got a full time job, kids and everything else that ends up filling your day as an adult I noticed that I needed to exercise even more. Eventually, exercise wasn’t enough. I just didn’t have the time to exercise as much as I needed to keep the weight off and it started to build up. Plus, I was doing a lot of exercise that I really didn’t enjoy. It simply wasn’t fun. It was work. Continue reading “A body is made in the kitchen, not in the gym”

How to pursue a woman and ensure that pursuit leads to great sex

doyou-twitter051217

When it comes to pursuit of sex, my wife says that I’m “aggressive”. That doesn’t mean that I’m rough or rude. That just means that I want what I want and I go for it. There is no grey area when it comes to the pursuit of sex with my wife.

It’s more than just grabbing her ass and asking for a blowjob though. There is a process and an art that works. Sometimes I do go over the line if I’m honest with groping and grabbing, but I can’t help it. I love to put my hands on my wife. She knows that I want her and that message is clear. Sometimes that annoys her because I’m a little too obvious and ‘hands on’. There’s really no mystery.  Continue reading “How to pursue a woman and ensure that pursuit leads to great sex”

10 foundational ways to make a woman feel desired and loved

soulonfire050417-instagram

When I was in high school I had a hard time with girls. I’m not saying that I couldn’t talk to them or that they weren’t interested in me. I just didn’t know what girls wanted. Seriously, I thought it was best to be Mr. Polite when it came to girls. I thought girls wanted to have the upper hand and when they were interested or ready then they would make the first move.

This was a huge mistake.

I can almost guarantee that the course of my life was changed by the decisions that I made during those years. Yes, I ended up having girlfriends, but it was only because I met a few girls that were aggressive in their pursuit of me. One of those girls ended up being my wife. So I guess it all worked out ok. But these types of women are rare. Continue reading “10 foundational ways to make a woman feel desired and loved”
