Intimate Encounter

- Intimate Encounter I needed a weekend away from the all too humdrum existence of day-to-day living. I decided that a good diversion might be to hike the Appalachian Trail for a weekend.

Training at the Poza House

- When I signed up for the Shen Long retreat in February, I was excited to be heading to the legendary Poza house to work out there for the first time.

Each time they came back stronger and tougher with new applications, new material, and new approaches to the arts. After years of trips, their growth was obvious.

Emerson and His Impact on Today's Society

- Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.” Emerson is a firm believer of maintaining self-reliance and values rather than following the crowd. He also explains that in order to be truly successful in life, a person must make decisions and trust in his or her judgment. In today’s society, teenagers are more likely to not be self-reliant because the teens feel they will be judged for having different beliefs. People today need to realize that they should not conform to be like the rest of the world, they must not depend on the judgment and criticism of others, and people must refuse to travel somewhere in order to forget their personal probl...   [tags: Personal Philosophy, Beliefs, Conformity]
