Your Phone vs. Your Heart

 

Can you remember the last time you were in a public space in America and didn’t notice that half the people around you were bent over a digital screen, thumbing a connection to somewhere else?

 

Most of us are well aware of the convenience that instant electronic access provides. Less has been said about the costs. Research suggests that one measurable toll may be on our biological capacity to connect with other people.

To read more about attunement, meditation, and vagal tone which are an integral part of this research, please visit The New York Times article written by Barbara Fredrickson

 

 

Welcome to Life!

 

 

Welcome to Life” – poem about truth and the human experience

 

 

 

Welcome to life!

The discipline of integrity

Becomes the leading force of progress and exploration!

 

Let our collective intelligence

Guide you to the ripest fruits of your efforts.

Let the effortless stillness of peace

Embrace the core of your being

 

You are one, wholesome reverberation of energy!

The ether of the universe is pulsating in every cell of your body,

And as this manifestation of infinity rejoices in the interconnectedness of matter,

You notice that with each breath you take,

Your senses bask in the positivity of the moment!

 

The acuteness of your perceptions focuses into a beam of precision and effortless efficiency.

 

The purpose of life becomes life itself!

The life you were born to live!

Your contributions advancing the progress of existence into the next dimension…

She's Alive, She's Home, She's Dying!

 

 

This is a non-commercial attempt to highlight the fact that world leaders, irresponsible corporations and mindless ‘consumers’ are combining to destroy life on earth. It is dedicated to all who died fighting for the planet and those whose lives are on the line today.

The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness

 

An international group of prominent scientists has signed The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness in which they are proclaiming their support for the idea that animals are conscious and aware to the degree that humans are – a list of animals that includes all mammals, birds, and even the octopus.

 

 

 

On this day of July 7, 2012, a prominent international group of cognitive neuroscientists, neuropharmacologists, neurophysiologists, neuroanatomists and computational neuroscientists gathered at The University of Cambridge to reassess the neurobiological substrates of conscious experience and related behaviors in human and non-human animals…

 

We declare the following: “The absence of a neocortex does not appear to preclude an organism from experiencing affective states. Convergent evidence indicates that non-human animals have the neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and neurophysiological substrates of conscious states along with the capacity to exhibit intentional behaviors. Consequently, the weight of evidence indicates that humans are not unique in possessing the neurological substrates that generate consciousness. Nonhuman animals, including all mammals and birds, and many other creatures, including octopuses, also possess these neurological substrates.”
