Addicted To The Madness!

The quieter you become the more you are able to hear.

Rumi

Last Friday, I took the train into New York to meet up with some friends and visit the Met. They are celebrating by having an exhibit of the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing that took place on July 20,1969. It was fascinating and I highly recommend seeing it. But it got me thinking, of how absolutely quiet it must be in space. and the absence of any sound.

To get to the museum, I walked a few blocks and then took the subway there. The noise level on the streets was off the charts! Between the sirens, trucks and cars beeping there horns, and the stimulus from other things was over whelming. Thank God, I am able to stay grounded and be aware of the noise without getting sucked into all, but, I gotta say that I couldn’t wait to get out of the city. It can rattle your nervous system to a point were you just become numb and addicted to it all.

We are not meant to live like this. It isn’t healthy. Yes, you can learn to adjust to all the noise but you will never get in touch with your authentic self if you aren’t taking the time to be in nature. Going to the moon has shown mankind how vital and precious our beautiful blue planet really is. Connect to Mother Earth, embrace all the wonders and the natural resources that she has to offer. And most importantly, listen to the silence.

Is It All An Illusion?

July 26, 2017

I think therefore I am.”   René Descartes

Have you ever wondered where consciousness come from?

Being conscious gives us the ability to feel sensations and to experience the world through the lens of our minds.  We can enjoy a beautiful day at the beach or appreciate the laughter of small children playing.  We get to feel pain and pleasure.

Our brain perceives nerve impulses from our physical world that get interpreted as sensations or conscious awareness of that stimulus that is triggering the feelings.  Consciousness is what psychologist’s call “theory of the mind”. However it is more than this. The mystery of consciousness is now being explored as an illusion. Maybe it is there only to amaze ourselves? Maybe it is there to see ourselves as spiritual beings having this human experience?

The chief benefits of being conscious feeds our self-worth, gives us the joys of life, eases our fear of death and most important, increases our respect for others.  Maybe instead of “I think therefore I am”  it really is I feel, therefore I am?

In this short video, you will get a glimpse of how magical we humans really are.
