First things first: Confidence is not bravado, or swagger, or an overt pretense of bravery. Confidence is not some bold or brash air of self-belief directed at others.

Confidence is quiet: It’s a natural expression of ability, expertise, and self-regard. Learn the qualities [Read more...]

World’s Largest Buddha Statue Carved into a Cliff

Share




leshan-giant-buddha

The Leshan Giant Buddha is the world’s largest stone Buddha statue located in the Sichuan province of China, near the city of Leshan. The monumental structure was first carved out of a cliff where the Minjiang, Dadu, and Qingyi rivers meet during the Tang Dynasty (618-907AD) and continues to stand tall today, proving to be a tourist attraction for spiritual followers and art enthusiasts.

Despite the fact that the seated Maitreya Buddha remains embedded in the natural environment, centuries since its initial construction, it has inevitably weathered down over the years. In fact, the giant figure was originally adorned with a thirteen-story, gold-plated, wooden structure meant to serve as a sort of shelter from extreme weather conditions. It has since been destroyed, leaving the 233-foot-tall Buddha to fend for itself. It is now as much a part of the environment as the mountain it is carved into. Locals even say, “The mountain is a Buddha and the Buddha is a mountain.” For pics [Read more...]

Meditation for Beginners: 10 Practical Tips

Share




url
Meditation is the art of focusing 100% of your attention in one area. The practice comes with a myriad of well-publicized health benefits including increased concentration, decreased anxiety, and a general feeling of happiness.

Although a great number of people try meditation at some point in their lives, a small percentage actually stick with it for the long-term. This is unfortunate, and a possible reason is that many beginners do not begin with a mindset needed to make the practice sustainable. [Read more...]

STARPATH: An Electricity-Free Alternative to Streetlights

Share




w640
UK-based company Pro-Teq has developed a spray-on solution to create a trail of illuminating stars aptly known as STARPATH. The innovative product boasts an anti-slip and water-resistant surface, not to mention an energy-free alternative to streetlights, that is ideal for pedestrians at night. It is both cost-effective and less labor-intensive, two incentives that Pro-Teq promotes and seeks to propose to global city councils in the hopes of incorporating their product into public parks.

STARPATH is currently installed in England, covering 140 meters along a pathway at Christ’s Pieces Park in Cambridge. From start to finish, the entire installation process took less than four hours. The quick construction involved spraying a polyurethane base on the ground, followed by a layer of the aggregate material that absorbs and stores energy from UV rays, and a final polyaspartic top coat (that takes only half an hour to dry) to seal it all in.

Pro-Teq Surfacing owner Hamish Scott explains, “This product adjusts to the natural light, so if it is pitch black outside the luminous natural earth enhances, and if the sky is lighter, it won’t release as much luminosity – it adjusts accordingly, it’s almost like it has a mind of its own.”

4 Aphrodisiac Foods That Could Ruin Your Sex Life In Weird Ways

Share




url-3

Boner alert: Scientists/bloggers at NaturalNews recently compiled a list of sensual aphrodisiac foods that are said to improve your sex life. Surprisingly, our date night go-tos – Cheetos and Red Bull – didn’t make the list. Which is weird, because we always score, although admittedly our dates are usually NASCAR fans who burp a lot. NaturalNews indicated that oysters, bananas, chocolate, and truffles contain either amino acids, vitamins, enzymes, or scents that may help desperate dudes get lucky, but while having a fridge-full of sensual foods may help a batter round the bases to home, each aforementioned piece of produce has the potential to ruin a night of fun and fornication, big time.
