Frugal Living and Money Mangement

Becoming more frugal with our money management is suddenly highly relevant to a lot of people as the world spins into economic chaos at the time of writing, in 2012. While I'm not advocating that we all become total penny-pinching tightwads like Dickens' Scrooge, the truth is that a lot of us would be a lot better off in the long run if we learned a few simple lessons from our parsimonious, thrifty and generally more prudent peers and became a bit more canny and careful with our money.

Saving Money: The Mindset

Most of the time, as long as inflation is not so high that saving money looks like wasting money because you can't possibly keep up, I think most people would agree that saving something towards your future financial freedom would be a really good idea. I think we would all like to retire in some degree of luxury, or at worst, security, and yet for most of us saving is something that just never seems to happen.

How to perform Transcendental Meditation. Transcendental Meditation (abbreviated TM) is promoted as a method of meditation that is supposed to be able to bring a number of benefits such as relaxation or stress reduction, and possibly enlightenment.

What Is Enlightenment?

The Eastern traditions of enlightenment are now very popular worldwide, but I have found very little description anywhere as to what exactly it is, and what the benefits may be. There are articles about how to achieve it through meditation and other methods, but I feel that without a clear definition of what we are trying to achieve, and why we should bother, the goal will remain elusive. I aim to address this lack in this article.
