Dear Meli, This may be a silly question, but do you really need to meditate if you're on a spiritual path? I ask because I really hate to meditate. I have a really hard time sitting still and quieting my mind. I'm a runner and that seems to be my preferred form of...

How Can I Be Myself Around Others?

Do We Have to Eat Healthy to Be Spiritual?

Dear Meli, I am a really healthy eater. I do it because it makes me feel better, but also because I feel like it helps me spiritually. My best friend, however, doesn't eat healthy at all. And, I have to admit, she's also one of the most loving and spiritually...
