Slowing down.

Learning from Dogs

Of space and meditation.

In yesterday’s post, I wrote about using a biofeedback device promising to explain more today.

Also yesterday, I touched on the benefits of meditation and how the video from quantum physicist John Hagelin PhD seemed so interesting.

So let’s start with that sixteen-minute talk from John Hagelin.

In this intro video, quantum physicist and certified TM teacher John Hagelin, PhD explains the Transcendental Meditation technique and its benefits from a scientific perspective.

Now while I had been aware of transcendental meditation, seemingly for years, I had never really taken steps properly to understand exactly what it is all about. Clearly, John Hagelin does an excellent job in that video in giving one a good basic understanding of TM.

However, a quick trip across to the TM Organisation’s website soon fixed that. There’s a great amount of information. Including sections such as: Stress Relief & Stress…

The natural state of bliss!

The Voice of Silence

6

Bliss happens when we are connected to our natural state of love. Bliss feels so good, but what is it that prevents us from feeling this consistently?

The instability that our thoughts and emotions create which block our sense of bliss. Our thoughts feed our emotions. If we are thinking repeatedly life is hard and difficult, then emotionally, we can feel sad or even depressed. Alternatively if we keep thinking that life is wonderful we can feel happy and full of joy. When we are caught up in the cycle ossilating between negative and positive thoughts we experience the duality of life. That is the opposing nature of things: pleasure and pain, right and wrong, joy and grief, for example.

Duality engages us in a life constantly dancing between opposite forces, such as feeling happy and sad. When we feel happy, we feel good, and when we feel sad, we…

Harvard Study Unveils What Meditation Literally Does To The Brain

Interesting how scientific studies are suddenly appearing to prove what we intuitively already know! YEAH!

Numerous studies have indicated the many physiological benefits of meditation, and the latest one comes from Harvard University.

An eight week study conducted by Harvard researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) determined that meditation literally rebuilds the brains grey matter in just eight weeks. It’s the very first study to document that meditation produces changes over time in the brain’s grey matter. (1)

“Although the practice of meditation is associated with a sense of peacefulness and physical relaxation, practitioners have long claimed that meditation also provides cognitive and psychological benefits that persist throughout the day. This study demonstrates that changes in brain structure may underlie some of these reported improvements and that people are not just feeling better because they are spending time relaxing.” – (1) Sara Lazar of the MGH Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program and a Harvard Medical School Instructor in Psychology.

The Truth

It’s a funny thing about truth and Spiritual growth. As you grow, your true essence pushes it’s way to the forefront. Things that you previously smiled about, tolerated, lied to yourself about, eventually makes you feel sad because you start to “consciously” realize that you haven’t been true to your Spirit. You’ve been “faking the funk” and your Spirit is no longer willing to accept the status quo.

My Spiritual Journey

Today, I asked Spirit, “How should I handle my job search?” I shuffled my cards and this is the answer I received.

“You have the vitality and stealth to give and receive whatever you want in business and love.”

“Use your will power to keep moving, to maintain the fire of desire inside of you, the desire to help others and increase your Spiritual gifts and talents. Something needs to be done. The answer is at hand if you keep moving. Keep the fire fueled inside yourself, and others, so that you can continue with your current acceleration and personal drive. You have vitality to contribute and make a major change. You have been given gifts to grow beyond your limitations. Embrace them.”

“Your powers of observation are extremely keen. At times, you even look guilty due to what you know from observing life. You are a powerful ally and are usually under-estimated. Look for the hidden reasons, observe what needs your attention, and quietly offer your help.”

“People love to love you and you love to love them back. You are an old soul that glows with the sunlight. In your past, your love for loving has caused you to ask yourself, “Why did I let this person in my life?” You are to be cherished, so sharpen your ability to detect people seeking love they think they can control.”

Stay tuned for the results of this reading.

Hetep!
