Brahmacharya: Practicing Moderation

Posted by on May 9, 2018 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Brahmacharya is the practice of non-excess, moderation, and right use of energy. It’s the practice of experiencing the pleasure, wonder, and the mystery of life without over-indulgence. Brahma is Sanskrit for God or creation. Charya translates to mean “one who is established in”. Brahmacharya can then be translated as “One who is established in the way of God or the creative force.” When you choose to look at yourself and your energy as sacred, the practice of moderation becomes easeful and an act of honoring the divine with yourself and others.

A quick Google search of the word balance brought many definitions including “a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct...

Asteya & Protecting Mother Earth

Posted by on Apr 19, 2018 in Evolution Blog |

“The bounty of the earth is for the community, not the individual.” -Deborah Adele Humans unconsciously take from the earth. People buy more than they need and oftentimes, products have extra packaging which creates more waste. This waste ends up in landfills and outdoors, often containing materials that take a very long time to biodegrade. Corporations and governments take ownership of land and natural resources with a focus on creating wealth rather than supporting people and the natural world. These are gross examples of how humans steal from the earth, others, and themselves. Our language uses terminology like “I, me, mine” emphasizing possession. Modern humans claim ownership over land,...
