To explain the workings of the human mind, Yoga Science presents a simple, conceptual diagram: a wheel with four spokes that turn it. The rim of the wheel represents the body, and its hub is the Divine Super Conscious Wisdom that is our deepest nature. The four spokes represent the Four Functions of the Mind: Senses and Logic (Manas), Ego (self-preservation), Unconscious (habits and memories), and Conscience (Buddhi). Ideally, these four functions work together in formulating every decision, large and small; but it is the Conscience that needs to have the last word if we are to live well […]

A Personal Journey by Kristin Kaelber MD, PhD
When I first attended the AMI physicians’ conference, my intention was to heal from burnout. At that time, I truly believed that if I found the “right” job, then (and only then) I would be able to heal. I never imagined that healing could occur within the same job. I thought I needed to find a job where the clinic allowed me to emphasize lifestyle practice for reversal of disease, gave me enough time to see patients, and diligently supported physicians so that they could focus only on doctor work and not menial […]
These days almost every situation can trigger the fight-flight-freeze stress response. Life in the 21st century so far feels as if we’ve been hijacked into a bizarre Rod Serling “Twilight Zone” episode from the 1960s.
Suddenly, what once seemed stable and reassuring now feels uncertain and potentially threatening. Fear, anger, anxiety and depression are now commonplace in our minds, our homes, our politics, at work and school, in hospitals, concert halls, vacation resorts, on television and the internet—even in our sacred houses of worship.
Nothing feels quite as normal nor as optimistic as it once did. A clear, sobering indicator comes from […]
I was five years old when I began wearing eyeglasses to correct my vision, and the experience was a game changer. For the first time in my life objects that had previously appeared fuzzy and indistinguishable, now became sharp and identifiable. I could see individual leaves on the trees and recognize words written on the blackboard in school. It was not only a thrill, it was an enormous benefit to see the world so clearly.
After that first amazing experience of clarity, however, my glasses often got dirty. A common accumulation of grease, dust and debris easily rendered my glasses ineffective. […]

“Those who say don’t know, and those who know don’t say.” This warning from Lao Tzu, the 6th century BC author of the Tao Te Ching and founder of Taoism, serves as an important reminder today for all of us trying to resolve challenging relationships.
Like many profound teachings presented by a master to a disciple, this statement is to be read as a riddle to solve. The words are presented in a way that requires a certain depth of understanding on the part of the disciple to be correctly interpreted.
From a yogic perspective, Lao Tzu’s […]
We rarely examine our most closely held concepts. Every day we deal with issues involving family, business, technology, and morality, knowing that when we need to enlist a certain concept to help us answer life’s questions it will come forward from the unconscious mind. But are all these concepts we’ve stored and employ really reliable, accurate and helpful?
In the field of political science, for example, consider that prized concept of “union,” so passionately discussed, debated and cherished during the turbulent birth of our nation. You probably still remember these famous words you once learned in elementary school: “We the People […]
