Re: More consciousness leading to better decisions

Have you actually felt a strong guided or inner body sensation that prompts you now and again to take action? That's a good question. I am noticing that problem solving is easier for me when I sit quietly in meditation. Sometimes I will let the thoughts flow and solutions arise effortlessly. For ex...

Re: AI and ALife

Here's an interesting insight into cloning ... looking to the left of the page click on the link 'clones'. Tolle has hinted at the alteration of our original DNA as well as the ancient Toltec lineages that Castaneda has written about. Does a clone have consciousness? I think so... Beware, this rabbi...

True Nature of Form?

Hi everyone - Here's an interesting video created by Radiohead. It took me a few moments to realize that this is a good demonstration of the transient nature of form. I thought I would share this because it struck me as relevant to our understanding of how forms arise and dissipate. Example: our eye...

Re: The Presence of Now and the creative process

It appears that you have a good understanding of the process... Like you, I am in a creative based field as a craftsman. Over the years I have witnessed, as I work, an effortless flow where the whole concept of time escapes me. One of my helpers has noticed it too - he says " I love doing this becau...

Re: Acts of the New Awakening

Helloooo... We've recently moved into a new neighborhood and met one of our neighbors. They're a very sweet mother and daughter. This introduction was a little funny as I am working in the garage, I can here this muffled "hheellloo? heellllooo?" and I peeked outside where I could see this little pin...

Re: Learning to enjoy life

"Live like it's Heaven on Earth, Work like you don't need money, Love like you've never been hurt, And dance like no one's watching."

That would be the famous quote from the worldly sage - George Bush Jr... my hero... :mrgreen:

Re: "Marijuana and False Enlightenment"

Interesting replies...

Hi everyone - I look forward to sharing time with you in this forum... this should be a good place to come visit and help remind myself to stop thinking so much and maybe tap into my own presence more often? I've always been a seeker... always looking around for the profound nuggets that jolt my rea...
