More Than Makeup Tips: What You Can Learn from Doe Deere

Posted on October 28, 2016 By

Have you ever imagined the face of a company and wondered to yourself what more they have to offer? Most recognize Doe Deere of Lime Crime as being immensely colorful, bold, and unapologetically herself, but few understand what else she brings to the table in both her personal life and her business.

Ambition Is Not Everything

Usually, business owners have always demonstrated a fierce soul intent on achieving their goals. From miscellaneous to-do lists to five or ten year plans, successful people have usually planned their entire lives around that victory. Doe Deere, however, never claimed to want to own a business. Though she did sell temporary tattoos as a child in her Russian home, her business goals never went deeper than that. A strong imagination existed within the woman, of course, but music was her true passion. So, what can you learn from this? The fact that you do not need to have a plan nor necessarily any goals to end up where you were always meant to be.

Use Previous Experience to Fuel Your Current Affairs

Upon moving to the United States, Deere pursued music in a band where she met her husband. From this brief musical career, the Queen of Unicorns learned how to market her events and to highlight the offerings of her band over anyone else’s. Additionally, the cosmetic genius learned to appreciate her fans, a prowess that is the main reason why her makeup line stands out the most.

Love Yourself and What You Do

For too long, Deere felt alone in her life. Even as a child, she was different from other people and being unable to express herself throughout her life lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, and general hopelessness. As a result and after the spark of her successful company, Deere realized that the very traits that made her different made her part of the universe. With a belief that everybody has something special about themselves, the beauty urges her followers to use those unique traits to express themselves and to go where they love. Following your heart is fundamental in this often saddening world, so never forget what happiness truly means.

Tyrants And Dictators Targeted By Thor Halvorssen

Posted on October 26, 2016 By

Thor Halvorssen is a name well known throughout the human rights activism community for his role in freeing various political prisoners, and raising awareness of the role dictators such as Russian President Vladimir Putin have in the loss of human rights seen around the world.

The Venezuelan film producer and activist has looked to raise awareness of human rights abuses in countries around the world, regardless of the political leaning of their ruling government; socialist leaning governments, such as those of Venezuela and Cuba have been discussed by Halvorssen, but remain ignored by activists who share their political values. Read more: Thor Halvorssen | Forbes

Thor Halvorssen has described himself as a classical liberal in his political viewpoint, particularly after the man of Norwegian descent bought and operated a socialist newspaper in the Scandinavian country in the early 21st century.

Despite his strong liberal leanings the political viewpoint of those he works with does not play a role in the decision making of Halvorssen, who has also appeared on more conservative leaning news media, such as the Fox Business Channel.

Halvorssen does not limit himself to the operation of the Human Rights Foundation and the impressive Oslo Freedom Forum, but instead looks to make sure the next generation of political activists are nurtured through charitable groups like the Children’s Peace Movement. Learn more about Thor Halvorssen:

The Children’s Peace Movement allows young people in northern and southern Europe to interact with young people living in areas of conflict to allow a greater understanding of human rights issues across the planet.

One of the most impressive aspects of the work of Thor Halvorssen in his role as a problem for tyrants around the world is his position on the rule of Russian President Vladimir Putin; not only has Halvorssen supported political activists Pussy Riot during their imprisonment in Russia, but also appointed well known Putin opponent Gary Kasparov to the position of President of the Human Rights Foundation.

According to The Atlantic, Thor Halvorssen admits to using the mainstream media in the 21st century to publicize the causes he feels are important and looks to bring human rights awareness to the public through various media outlets.

The Ancient Tradition of Kabbalah is Experiencing a Rebirth

Posted on August 4, 2016 By

Kabbalah is one of the oldest practices of studying spiritual mystism. This ancient practice has been handed down from generation to generation. Kabbalah is an ancient tradition that stems from Judism, but today it is practiced by Jews and Gentiles alike. This ancient tradition has spiked in popularity in the last few years, with hollywood celebrities such as Madonna following the practice.

Practitioners believe that it brings joy and meaning to their life and that by studying the Zohar, which are a grouo of books of commentary on the Torah, they can become closer to the Light. The Light is what practitioners of Kabbalah consider the essence of God. This ancient mystic study is an important part of Judism and is one of the oldest mystic traditions.

While rooted in Judism, not all people who study the Kabbalah are Jewish, as the Kabbalah simply seeks to help people understand the relationship between the mysteries of infinity, refered to as Ein Sol, and the mortal, finite universe that we live in and are a pert of. A person who wants to study Kaballah does not have to belong to be any particular religion, and is called a Mekubbal in traditonal Judism. This ancient tradion is rooted in mysitism and the supernatural.

The Kabbalah Centre was founded in 1984 and it is a non-profit organization that seeks to help people learn about Kabbalah and by offering classes on the Zohar and other Kabbalistic teachings. This international organization is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.

The centre was founded by Phillip Berg and his wife Karen Berg. They have a misson of opening up the study to all interested people and believe that when enough people study the Kabbalah it will usher in an age of peace and end all war, disease, and famine.

Traditionally the Kabbalah was considered so complex that only Jewish scholars who had years of Jewish study were encouraged to study the Kabbalah, meaning that most Kabbalah practicers have been males over the age of 40. The Kabbalah seeks to put an end to that by offering tutors to anyone who wishes to study and learn.
