Being kind is a choice

When I told this boy I wasn’t able to text him for a few hours because I was praying for my friend in the ER…. He was offended I didn’t text him within a few hours because I was nervous about someone I love being in the ER, which is why I prayed. Man, I don’t care what your beliefs are. Religious, not religious, whatever it may be. It’s about the person and their values, morals and ethics. To me, the basic “truth” is that we should be loving, understanding, compassionate, giving, respectful people that live from kindness. If we …

The Bathroom Gender Solution

Regarding the whole gender bathroom situation, there’s a simple solution. There are many different interpretations of gender and sexuality lately. Such as LGBT, asexual, male, female, etc. This will inevitably cause some confusion in regard to things that have previously been exclusively for those with genitals that reflect in anatomy as male or female. Especially, as of now, the topic of public restrooms… who goes where? People have been arguing and debating moral code, equality, beliefs, bigotism, etc. based on where people go to the bathroom. But, honestly, there’s a solution that doesn’t involve any of those unrelated topics: Unisex …

The Zoroastrian Temple of Silence

I’m Parsi Zoroastrian, which are Zoroastrians who left Persia during the war a zillion (a lot of) years ago in order to not be converted to another religion that was forced upon them. Zoroastrians are extremely peaceful and known to be some of the kindest people, as their religion is extremely simple (being that is such an old religion, the values are simply just love, light and respect. Do good, speak good, live good.) So, during this war… Many Zoroastrians and Jews were slaughtered and some fled to India to be safe. India only allowed them to stay if they …

Why Online Yoga Teacher Trainings Can Harm You And Your Students

The “yoga” industry is not new to me. I was born into the yoga world due to my father Aadil Palkhivala who is a world renowned yoga (asana) teacher. He studied with BKS Iyengar since he was 7 years old and was the youngest to receive the Advanced Yoga Teachers Certificate by BKS Iyengar. My father is known as the “teacher of teachers” in the yoga-asana world and has been traveling around the world teaching since he was a young adult. I could go on about his asana expertise, but basically I’ve learned a lot about yoga through my family, …

Why did Mark Hamill’s face change in Star Wars?

In Star Wars IV we saw Mark Hamill with different features. I didn’t really notice the difference until I looked more closely. Once Star Wars V came around, his face seemed to have changed.   Once Star Wars VI was released something looked different, and honestly he started to look a bit more ruggedly handsome as oppose to the more gentle delecate handsome of before. We all might have ignored it the first time mostly because we figured it was a directorial decision to make his face look different after the fight and slashing with that big monster beast yeti …

California Methane Gas Leak Now Considered the Biggest Disaster Since BP Oil Spill

Published: Jan 12, 2016 – Last Update: Feb 5, 2016. “It’s a huge disaster. It’s like a volcano that keeps erupting and won’t stop. I call it the BP oil spill on land. I think we’ll see the fallout for many, many years.” – Erin Brockovich The coming weekend we were going to go to LA. Then we learned about the methane gas leak through the most random of routes, barely covered by mainstream news until very recently, and we were shocked! We were very concerned about it since it is so close to where we would have been located (within …

Kylo Ren is Possessed?

There’s something suspicious about Kylo Ren’s behavior. For one, he is immensely emotional (like his grandfather before him, and uncle… Sorry, Luke was pretty whiny) and has numerous temper tantrums that even the the storm troopers don’t want to deal with.     So ok, he’s kinda emotional, sure. But why in the world did he go from studying the Jedi ways with his uncle, to killing everyone and creating/participating in (not clear) the Knights of Ren?  Perhaps… This boy is kinda possessed.  I mean, you can be possessed or mind manipulated by even a nasty scamster… Honestly, that’s kinda what …

The Flash TV Show: What?

FLASH SPOILER! Don’t read unless you’ve seen The Flash TV show.  What the heck did I just see. So… Dad’s gone too? He’s just free of prison and now he’s out? Firstly, TIME is about consequences. You can’t just have a time concept thrown in and not take consequence into account! This show is not showing it. At all. I love this show, so much, but what the heck did I just see.  First off… Why would they have a Flash Day because the Flash (and Ronnie) prevented the black hole based on a mess STAR labs peeps created? Agh? …

Is Rey Obi Wan’s Granddaughter?

We wonder who Rey is, all signs point to her being Luke’s daughter. But what if she was something entirely different? What if theres a major twist?   Here are some points my friend and I were discussing regarding WHO Rey is: Rey is Luke’s: 1 – Lor San Tekka had the map to Luke’s location and he was Rey’s keeper; 2 – Leia and Han cry the whole film about their son, but NEVER EVEN MENTION another kid they had. Even more a missed one. 3 – Luke’s saber calls her, I mean. C’mob. 4 – When she touched …
