“Mother Ganga”, The Pioneer (Part 1)

This article was originally published on The Pioneer, here. The crystal-clear, blue, rushing waters of Mother Ganga cut through the foothills of the Himalayas, carving out the most sacred riverbed in the world.

“Thriving in the New Year – From New to You”, Thrive Global

This article was originally published on Thrive Global, here. 'That true self is not new of course. But it is new to us. It is new to our experience of our selves.' Every day is new. As my Guru says “Whenever you wake up, it’s morning.” So every day could be your birthday, or New Year. There is nothing I know of astrologically that makes January 1st a particularly auspicious day for embarking on life changes or that makes Mondays better days to start anything new than, say, Thursdays.
