Switchwords

Ran into something interesting today, from a Brazilian contact. Its called Switchwords, basically a seed word to trigger a specific result. Like for finding keys or getting a ride. This is not unlike the idea of a root mantra, but more targeted at need. A one word affirmation, in certain ways. Some people evidently swear by it. Its also worth noting the process of Samyama, outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutra. Basically if you combine Self-awareness with open allowing consciousness, then have a specific thought, the result will occur. Much the same way, these are not about trying. The … Continue Reading…

Morphic Fields

Rupert Sheldrake summarizes the concept of Morphic fields and their consequences. http://www.sheldrake.org/Articles&Papers/papers/morphic/morphic_intro.html “memory is inherent in nature” “Most of the so-called laws of nature are more like habits.” “How are these fields inherited? I propose that that they are transmitted from past members of the species through a kind of non-local resonance, called morphic resonance.” “The fields organizing the activity of the nervous system are likewise inherited through morphic resonance, conveying a collective, instinctive memory. Each individual both draws upon and contributes to the collective memory of the species.” “The resonance of a brain with its own past states also … Continue Reading…

Psychoenergetics

ORBS: ARE THEY A PSYCHOENERGETIC PHENOMENON? By William A. Tiller, Ph.D. [Professor Emeritus of Materials Science, Stanford University]             Psychoenergetic science is traditional science expanded to incorporate human consciousness as a significant experimental variable. This is because today’s quantum mechanical paradigm, as it is presently formalized, is totally incapable of dealing with any psychoenergetic process and humans are all about such processes. From our past 10 years of psychoenergetic science research, the items relevant to this lecture are the following: 1.      Most importantly, we have discovered that there are two unique levels of … Continue Reading…

Simple Life

No, I don’t mean the TV show. I’m talking about the satisfying life, well considered. For many of us in North America, we’ve fallen into the cultural trap of consumerism.  Our culture is awash in images of the impossibly thin, rich, and perfect. Our heros have become examples of excess and despair. Sometimes, life throws us a curve. A challenge. And a place where we can stop and smell the roses. Reconsider what is important for us and who we really are. Are we condemed to run the rat race to buy ever more consumer goods, chasing a false God … Continue Reading…

Sufficiency

“The biggest, most unquestioned answer of our culture is our relationship with money. It is there that we keep alive–at a high cost–the flame and mythology of scarcity.” — Lynne Twist, author of the unexpected “Soul of Money” Lynne has been a long time fund raiser for charities like the Hunger Project and has worked with the very, very poor and the very, very rich. Most suffer from the same illusions of scarcity. In her book she outlines the 3 toxic myths of scarcity: 1) Theres not Enough 2) More is Better 3) Thats Just the Way it Is She … Continue Reading…

Truth and Perspective

For as long as we have had records, we have sought to discover the ultimate truth. The basic facts on which everything else is based. Over the ages, the most commonly held fundamental truths have varied widely. Today we consider ideas of a flat earth at the center of creation laughable. Science seeks the holy grail of physics, a single theory that covers all of the known laws, Unified Field. The only problem is, they are leaving out huge hunks of our experience, such as the simple experience of who we are. How can a theory be ultimate truth if … Continue Reading…

Embedded Intention

Inherent within all life and laws of nature is Intention. Directed consciousness. Energy with direction. “[T]here’s a kind of intention, a kind of goal-directedness inherent in the very nature of life in the most fundamental processes that enable embryos to grow and even protein molecules to form. And I think that the kind of conscious intention we experience as part of our mental life has its background in this goal-directedness which is inherent in all living creatures, and is an essential part of the nature of life and an essential part of the nature of the organizing fields that organize … Continue Reading…
