What is attention? If you’re interested in spirituality you may have heard it called consciousness or presence.
If you have an interest in psychology or are more on the hard-science side of things you may have heard it called mindfulness instead. Mindfulness is a useful term if you read it as “what you are mindful (aware) of,” and not so helpful if you consider it to be concerned primarily with the mind, that is, what you are actually thinking.
There are times, in my books and articles, when I talk about an external control system that many of us are aware of, and others are awakening to. I ask readers to examine how we are socially and culturally conditioned, and programmed by messages that manipulate our emotions and base desires.
The message for which I am primarily known has remained consistent for 52 years: unity, freedom, peace, love, justice, gratitude, giving. These words represent a powerful, stunning, and absolutely possible reality available to all humanity.
There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact. -Mark Twain
The dance along the artery. The circulation of the lymph. Are figured in the drift of stars. -T. S. Eliot
Researchers Finally Show How Mindfulness and Your Thoughts Can Induce Specific Molecular Changes To Your Genes
With evidence growing that training the mind or inducing specific modes of consciousness can have beneficial health effects, scientists have sought to understand how these practices physically affect the body. A new study by researchers in Wisconsin, Spain, and France reports the first evidence of specific molecular changes in the body following a period of intensive mindfulness practice.
It’s a bit controversial, but you should know that using a microwave oven could be damaging your health. Swiss scientist Hans Hertel did independent research on microwave cooking that was once banned from publication by a court gag order demanded by an industry association. He was told to recant or be arrested. His findings were not favorable for microwave-oven users.
Prayer means many different things to many different people. It is something that is so pervasive in our lives that it permeates fully through our societies and cultures. All cultures and religious traditions have their own practices when it comes to prayer, but let us acknowledge the similar theme. People all over the world right now are praying, to influence their world and the universe in myriad ways.
The goal of the mystical school is the completed person. The completed person has added a degree of spiritual development to their other capacities. This spiritual development is accomplished through an interaction between the Master, the student and Path.
The school exists to help make the world a better place, one person at a time and is the original school/classroom without walls. Learning takes place on many levels and is directed by a Master who has completed the journey.
Thunderstorms casting long shadows on the horizon as the continents come alive with lights; the line separating day from night as it moves slowly across the Earth’s surface; the dancing curtains of auroras as shooting stars sweep across the stratosphere. Astronauts have described how it feels to look back at Planet Earth from space in a myriad of ways, but each with a common theme. Witnessing the world in unity, as a single entity in constant, dynamic motion, creates nothing less than a sensation of overwhelming awe.
The human energetic body, also referred to as the pranic sheath or astral body, is an intricate network of 72,000 nadis that facilitate the movement of prana, the vital energy of the human body. The nadis, also referred to as astral tubes, astral nerves or meridians, come together in seven energy centers called the chakras which are located along the central canal, the Sushumna, which corresponds to the spine in the physical body. Understanding each energy center and having the ability to heal them can help you consciously control your physical body and hence aide physical and emotional well-being and assist in higher spiritual pursuits.
What would our world be like today of these top 10 spiritual truths were taught in our schools, in the mainstream media, and in our history books? How can we change the system to introduce these topics to our future generations? What will the world be like after successfully recognizing these spiritual truths?
Our world is broken and in dire need of repair, and humanity’s created toxicity is starting to show its effects in our declining health and well-being. Preventative decisions made today can completely change how we live out our final years, but this change must be done from power rather than need.
Society functions on the premise that the system–even with its flaws–is functioning just fine, as long as our daily needs are met. The blanket of disguise and deception keeps getting pulled over our eyes, and those doing the pulling get richer by the day, skimming profits straight from the top without accountability.
