how to | meditate

Meditation is a process where we take our attention and bring it inside the body to the place between and behind the two eyebrows. When we sit for meditation, we want to make sure that our body is totally relaxed. We want to sit in a pose that we can maintain without moving for the entire duration of the meditation sitting. We place our feet comfortably on the floor and our hands are placed comfortably in our lap. You can rest one hand inside the other hand, but you don’t want to interlace the fingers because that may restrict blood flow. As we take up a pose, we want to make sure that there is not tension anywhere in the body. We make sure that there’s no tension in our leg muscles, our stomach muscles are relaxed, our shoulders are relaxed, our neck and facial muscles are relaxed, and our jaw muscles are relaxed. Next, we close our eyes very gently and very sweetly as if resting for sleep, but we remain fully awake and fully alert behind the eyes.

how to | meditate Our eyeballs are fixed straight ahead – horizontally. There should be no squinting or pressure placed on the eyelids. No pressure on the forehead. With eyes closed, simply gaze very sweetly, very gently into the center of the field of vision that we see in front of us. There should be no squinting or straining on the eyes. We are simply gazing into the center of the field of darkness that we see in front of us. We are looking out beyond the bridge of our nose about 8 to 10 inches in front of us.

more green tips Buy locally raised, humane, and organic meat, eggs, and dairy whenever you can. Purchasing from local farmers keeps money in the local economy.

Share power tools and other appliances. Get to know your neighbors while cutting down on the number of things cluttering your closet or garage.

Watch videos about why local food and sustainable seafood are so great. Whatever your diet, eat low on the food chain. This is especially true for seafood.

8. Buy smart.

5. Skip the bottled water.

Wear clothes that don’t need to be drycleaned. This saves money and cuts down on toxic chemical use.

Use a water filter to purify tap water instead of buying bottled water. Not only is bottled water expensive, but it generates large amounts of container waste. Bring a reusable water bottle, preferably aluminum rather than plastic, with you when traveling or at work.

6. Think before you buy. Go online to find new or gently used secondhand products. Whether you’ve just moved or are looking to redecorate, consider a service like craigslist or FreeSharing to track down furniture, appliances, and other items cheaply or for free. Check out garage sales, thrift stores, and consignment shops for clothing and other everyday items. When making purchases, make sure you know what’s “Good Stuff” and what isn’t.

7. Borrow instead of buying. Borrow from libraries instead of buying personal books and movies. This saves money, not to mention the ink and paper that goes into printing new books.

Buy in bulk. Purchasing food from bulk bins can save money and packaging.

Invest in high-quality, long-lasting products. You might pay more now, but you’ll be happy when you don’t have to replace items as frequently (and this means less waste!).

9. Keep electronics out of the trash. Keep your cell phones, computers, and other electronics as long as possible. Donate or recycle them responsibly when the time comes. E-waste contains mercury and other toxics and is a growing environmental problem. Recycle your cell phone. Ask your local government to set up an electronics recycling and hazardous waste collection event.

10. Make your own cleaning supplies. The big secret: you can make very effective, non-toxic cleaning products whenever you need them. All you need are a few simple ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, lemon, and soap.Making your own cleaning products saves money, time, and packaging-not to mention your indoor air quality.

 green tips

save money Make Your Own Green Cleaners!

Everyone likes a clean home, but few of us like the chore of cleaning. Even worse, we often rely on a cocktail of hazardous substances to make our bathrooms sparkle or our floors shine. Dishwashing detergents often contain phosphates that pollute the groundwater; wood polish generally contains flammable toxins like nitrobenzene; and laundry detergent may contain bleach and other corrosives. We lock these compounds away in closets or under the sink to keep them from our children—but we often don’t consider what they may be doing to our own bodies. Even as they help us pick up dirt and dust, many modern cleaners irritate our skin, eyes, and lungs. They can also leave toxic residues or pollute the water when we rinse them down the drain. But keeping our homes clean and avoiding toxic cleaners don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Several companies now produce “green” cleaners that avoid ingredients that are toxic or don’t biodegrade. Here are some simple ways you can make your own natural cleaners made from a range of safer substances we might already have around the house.

Stock up on a few safe, simple ingredients that can be used in most cleaning situations. Soap, water, baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice, borax, and a coarse scrubbing sponge can take care of most household cleaning needs. Instead of using a standard drain cleaner, which likely contains lye, hydrochloric acid, and sulfuric acid, try pouring a quarter cup of baking soda down the clogged drain, followed by a half cup of vinegar. Close the drain tightly until fizzing stops, then flush with boiling water. For an effective glass cleaner, use a mixture of half white vinegar and half water. Baking soda and cornstarch are both good carpet deodorizers. To clean up mildew and mold, use a mixture of lemon juice or white vinegar and salt. A paste of baking soda, salt, and hot water makes a great oven cleaner. In the rare instance you need to use a hazardous product, use as little as possible and dispose of it in a way that will cause minimum harm—for example, by bringing it to a hazardous waste recycling or treatment center.

edible garden How to start an edible garden a Create a dedicated vegetable patch for a valuable garden addition. It allows you to plant successive plants through the seasons, so that you can enjoy home-grown, pesticide free produce all year round. Designed with a little imagination, it can also be an attractive part of your back garden. It may be easier to just pop into the shops to buy your veggies; there is just nothing more satisfying than picking your own vegetables and experiencing their intense flavour. Toppled with the increase in food prices, growing your own vegetables may soon become a must. To grow successfully, your vegetables need the following: 1.


When selecting the area where you would like to plant your edible garden, make sure that you select an area that is level and sheltered from the wind. If the garden is on a slight slope then gently terrace the beds, this will prevent some plants from getting too much water and others too little. 2.


Growing your veggies close to the house and, in particular, the kitchen will make it easier and safer to quickly dash out and pick your favourite veggies for supper. You will also be more inclined to look after the veggie garden if it is in the ‘mind’s eye’. 3.


Most vegetables need at least five to six hours of sunlight a day. If you have a shady garden, consider planting your veggies in containers and moving them around into the sun as the season changes. 4.

Fertile Soil

As with other plants, vegetables need good soil in order to grow abundantly. So, make sure that you enrich the soil with compost manure and fertiliser; this will ensure healthy delightful vegetables.

edible garden and grow your own vegetables 5.


Vegetables that are already growing above the soil benefit from deep watering every four to eight days, depending on the temperature and soil type. Leafy vegetables require more water than root vegetables. Fruiting vegetables, such as, squashes and tomatoes, don’t like water on their leaves. To reduce evaporation and keep roots cool, place a layer of mulch in the beds. 6.


Most vegetables require a soil that is rich in nutrients. Composting, mulching and rotating crops are natural ways to make sure that your soil remains rich. Supplementing your soil with organic fertilisers will benefit your vegetables, because they stimulate soil life, don’t leach and pollute water sources, or leave residue in the soil. 7.


Vegetables grow best in soil that drains well. If you have clay or sandy soil try adding compost and coarse organic material, such as, peanut shells, garden refuse (leaves and grass 8.


Vegetable gardens require daily attention, but instead of looking at it like another task, make it the most important part of your day and a time to unwind. What better way to end the day than checking on daily growth, getting rid of pests and selecting vegetables for supper. Tips: Choose easy to grow vegetables when starting out, these include; radishes, beans, lettuce, beetroot, chives, and Swiss chard. Success increase enthusiasm and confidence, therefore insuring your dedication. Start with one or two types of vegetables that you can give attention to with great results.Trying to grow too many vegetables at once will curb your enthusiasm and you will give up too soon.

how to | compost

2. Fill your bin with a balanced mixture for best results:

The Basics Of Composting What Is Compost?

Compost is simply decomposed organic material. The organic material can be plant material or animal matter. While composting may seem mysterious or complicated, it’s really a very simple and natural process that continuously occurs in nature, often without any assistance from mankind. If you’ve ever walked in the woods, you’ve experienced compost in its most natural setting. Both living plants and annual plants that die at the end of the season are consumed by animals of all sizes, from larger mammals, birds, and rodents to worms, insects, and microscopic organisms. The result of this natural cycle is compost, a combination of digested and undigested food that is left on the forest floor to create rich, usually soft, sweet-smelling soil.

1. Choose or construct a bin for your compost. While you can compost successfully in a pile on the ground, a bin will keep the process a bit neater and help to discourage animals if you are composting food scraps. Depending on the construction of the bin, it can also help to regulate moisture and temperature. A good minimum size for a pile is at least 1 cubic yard or 1 cubic meter, though a pile can go larger than this, and smaller-scale composting can be made to work.

Green stuff (high in nitrogen) to activate the heat process in your compost. Perfect heat-generating materials include: young weeds (before they develop seeds); comfrey leaves; yarrow; chicken, rabbit or pigeon manure; grass cuttings; etc. Other green items that compost well include fruit and vegetables; fruit and vegetable scraps; coffee grounds and tea leaves (including tea bags - remove the staple if you wish); vegetable plant remains; plants.

Brown stuff (high in carbon) to serve as the “fiber” for your compost. Brown stuff includes fall (autumn) leaves; dead plants and weeds; sawdust; cardboard & cardboard tubes (from foil wraps etc); old flowers (including dried floral displays, minus plastic/foam attachments); old straw and hay; and small animal bedding. Air. It is possible to compost without air (anaerobically), but the process employs different bacteria and an anaerobic compost pile will take on a sour smell like vinegar. It may also attract flies or take on a matted, slimy appearance. If you believe your compost pile needs more air, turn it, and try adding more dry or brown stuff to open up the structure. Water. Your pile should be about as damp as a sponge that has been wrung out. Depending on your climate, you can add water directly or rely on the moisture that comes in with “green” items. A lid on the compost bin will help to

how to | compost keep moisture in. If a pile gets too much water in it, it might not get enough air. Soil or starter compost. This is not strictly necessary, but a light sprinkling of garden soil or recently finished compost between layers can help to introduce the correct bacteria to start the compost cycle a little more quickly. If you are pulling weeds, the soil left on the roots may be sufficient to serve this purpose. Compost starters are available, but probably not necessary. 3. Layer or mix the different materials in your bin so that they come into contact with one another and so that you avoid any large clumps. Especially avoid compacting large quantities of green materials together, since they can rapidly become anaerobic. If possible, start with a layer of lightweight brown material, such as leaves, to help keep enough air near the bottom. Try for a mixture of anywhere from 3 parts brown to 1 part green to half and half, depending on what materials you have on hand. Sprinkle each layer lightly with water as you build the heap, if it requires additional moisture. 4. Turn your pile regularly, once every week or two. Clear a patch next to the pile. Then use a pitchfork and move the entire pile to the clear spot. When it is time to turn the pile again, move it back to the original spot, or back into the bin. Mixing the pile in this way helps to keep air flowing inside the pile, which encourages aerobic decomposition. Anaerobic decomposition will smell very stinky (generally sour, like vinegar) and they decompose materials more slowly than aerobic bacteria. Turning the pile helps to encourage the growth of the right kind of bacteria and makes for a nice, sweetsmelling pile that will decompose faster. Try to move matter from inside to outside and from top to bottom. Break up anything that is clumpy or matted. Add water or wet, green materials if it seems too dry. Add dry, brown materials if the pile seems too wet. If you are still adding to the pile, take the opportunity while you turn it to introduce the new matter and mix it well with the older matter.

5. Decide whether to add slow rotting items such as tough branches, twigs and hedge clippings; wood ash; wood shavings and wood pruning. They can be composted, but you may want to compost them separately because they will take longer to break down, especially in a cold climate with a shorter composting season. Shred heavy materials, if you can, for faster decomposition. 6. Try to avoid composting bread, pasta, nuts, and cooked food. They don’t break down very easily, become quite slimy, and can hold up the heating, rotting-down process. (Old nuts left in the garden will disappear quickly if you have squirrels or monkeys around!) 7. Never compost the following items for reasons of health, hygiene and inability to break down: meat and meat scraps; bones; fish and fish bones; plastic or synthetic fibers; oil or fat; pet or human feces (except for manure of herbivorous creatures such as rabbits and horses); weeds that have gone to seed; diseased plants; disposable diapers (nappies); glossy paper or magazines; coal and coke ash; and cat litter. Place these items in the normal garbage collection.

8. Harvest your compost. If all goes well, you will eventually find that you have a layer of good compost at the bottom of your bin. Remove this and spread it on or dig it into your garden beds.

sell solar energy

Selling Solar Power Energy Tools - Today, a number of DIY guides have recently come onto the market which detail exactly how to build your own solar cells using step by step illustrated directions as well as the most inexpensive materials to do it. Many guides detail how to create enough solar cells for just over $100 which generate enough solar power energy to pay one month’s utility bill. As these cells are easy to produce in the course of an afternoon, many homeowners have gone on to construct multiple solar cells to either increase their energy consumption but also to sell to other homeowners who are interested in saving and earning this kind of money and are willing to pay top dollar for it. See what all the fuss is about and how easy it is to create your own solar power energy using an incredibly easy DIY solar energy guide today. Don’t wait any longer because you believed it was too expensive or too difficult to implement, there has literally never been a better time to get started and begin saving and earning money while helping the environment.

solar dollars Home Value - Everyone wants to

Solar power energy has been described as being great for the environment to death while all the while for the life of me I can’t understand why no one ever mentions how economical it is, particularly in these tough economic times. Making the switch to using solar energy is incredibly easy and affordable these days, so let’s look into these 5 fantastic ways in which you can make real money off of solar power energy.

Power Bills - This one is obvious, but think

about it. The average homeowner was estimated in 2008 to spend $200 each month on electricity alone, with many homeowners spending much more. On average that’s an annual $2400 needlessly spent when using solar power energy could create the same effect for free. Imagine having an extra $2400 in your annual budget, I’m sure you could find a use or two for it.

Solar Power Energy Surplus

- Solar cells are great at creating more than enough solar power energy to power your home each month. If you create more energy than you use in a given month, it can automatically be fed back into the power grid and sold back to the power company for a profit. Can you imagine your power meter reading that you actually gave back power rather than using, or could you imagine having an EXTRA $2400 in your pocket each year in addition to the original sum which isn’t being spent on electricity?

save money, that’s no secret. What may not be obvious is that you can dramatically add to the overall value of your home by installing solar cells. Potential homeowners these days are looking, in part, for a home which will save them money in the long run. If your house generates its own electricity and you can prove that you are able to live off the grid (not rely on the power company as much) because of it, you can easily add thousands of dollars to the value of your home when it comes time to sell, so please keep that in mind.

Tax Breaks - The government is

incredibly lenient on homeowners when it comes to taxes who both live off the grid but also on those who live off the grid and create and sell excess solar power energy back to the power company. This is because these homeowners are not only reducing their energy consumption, but others consumption, as well, altogether alleviating the energy crisis. With the natural energy technology focused Obama administration now in office, you can expect even more benefits to those who embrace natural energy early on like today.

people | giving hearts But more help is needed, and Mrs. Gomes has formed the Walkerswood Relief Project.

Republished with permission Princeton Herald Top Stories ‘Heartbroken’ over Homeland By: Dick Brinster, Staff Writer

Twin Rivers woman pledges to help students in Jamaica EAST WINDSOR — Although Cheryl Gomes left Jamaica with her family nearly three decades ago, a visit last month to her old hometown served as a reminder of how desperate impoverished people are in a nation otherwise known as a vacation paradise. “ I was heartbroken,” she said this week, alluding to a trip to Walkerswood, where she says children are hungry for both food and education. “Upon returning to the U.S., I made a solemn oath that I will use every resource and means I can think of to provide help and some relief to this school and community.” The elementary school she speaks of already does its part to see that children are fed with a farm project that grows fruits and vegetables, said Ms. Gomes, a Twin Rivers resident who works in marketing and public affairs at the University Medical Center at Princeton.

“Even with the project, some kids still go hungry without a nutritious breakfast and lunch,” she said. “Our dream is that each and every student will not be hungry during school.”Ms. Gomes is a member of the Rutty family, one which avoided the depths of poverty and despair that long has symbolized life for many of the people on the Caribbean island nation of more than 2.6 million. The family, which owns Trans Caribe Express Shippers Inc. of East Orange, N.J. was able to collect enough donations from families and friends in the United States to send in 2005 a 900-cubic-foot container of school and office supplies to Walkerswood, a village of about 4,000 tucked away in the lush tropical hills of St. Ann Parish. Ms. Gomes said the next shipment, which can include canned and or dried food in addition to the needed school supplies, will be sent as soon as enough goods are received to fill another container. As a mother of three children, Ms. Gomes is particularly proud of the student achievement in a town where children through grade 9 are educated in a dilapidated building typical of schools in many impoverished nations. She says despite limited resources, 80 percent of grade 9 students passed an exam needed to enter a secondary school about 10 miles away, and 95 percent succeeded on a second try.

people | giving hearts Ms. Gomes, a Twin Rivers resident since 1999, wants the progress to continue, but says it will take more than word-ofmouth contributions from a small group within the Jamaican-American community. And, supplies for the elementary school of 280 students go beyond the need for just pencils and paper. The children are in need of computers, televisions, projectors and educational software, book bags, keyboards for music and a school bus, Ms. Gomes said. She added that the lunch program is in need of all types of kitchen supplies such as blenders, microwaves, toaster ovens, food processors, serving spoons and even knives and forks. “Past donations were greatly appreciated,” she said of the contributions of 2005. “But the problems of overcrowding still exist. “By using a multimedia campaign with, which includes solicitation of donations in the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., area to create awareness, the Rutty family is hoping to capture the hearts and helping hands of the right organizations and sponsors who will donate supplies to help this and other communities.” A community center once used for the hub of civic and social events in Walkerswood is now closed, Ms. Gomes said. The once-profitable community cooperative — which housed arts and crafts, a farmers market, a wood-working shop and restaurant — also is closed and badly in need of repair.

Children are in dire need of school supplies and classrooms need repair

The Canteen needs repair and a healhty meals program implemented.

Ms. Gomes is gratified that when her family lived in Jamaica it was able to contribute to those is need, providing aid to transport children to school, the sick to hospitals and provide first-aid assistance and help those in need of food. “From the time we came to the U.S.A., we always felt the need to help the community we left behind,” Ms. Gomes said.
