The Law of Time

José Argüelles, USA

(Submitted by The Art of Living Team)

It is the Law of Time that governs the entirety of the biosphere and everything else in the universe, according to principles that are known only dimly to us, principles like synchronicity and telepathic instantaneity. The Law of Time is formulated very simply, and in some people’s way of thinking, rather unscientifically as T(E)=Art, “energy factored by time equals art.”

A New Renaissance

Edgar Morin, France

(Submitted by the author)

A deterioration in quality for the sake of quantity is the hallmark of our civilisation crisis, since we live in a world dominated by a technological, economic and scientific logic. Only that which is quantifiable is perceived as real, everything else is dismissed, from political thinking in particular. Unfortunately, neither love nor suffering, nor pleasure, enthusiasm or poetry are quantifiable.

The Sun

Rev Koichi Barrish, USA

Ueshiba Morihei O’Sensei, the great Shinto thinker and founder of the Art of Aikido said:

“Rise early in the morning to greet the Sun. Inhale and let yourself soar to the ends of the Universe; breath out and let the Cosmos inside. Next, breath up the fecundity and vibrance of Earth. Blend the breath of Earth and your own and become the breath of life itself. Your mind and body will be gladdened, depression and heartache will dissipate and you will be filled with light and gratitude.”

Light is God

Harvey Lloyd, USA

(Submitted by the author)

Our eyes do not see, any more than our computer thinks. Our eyes are marvelous tools for recording and transmitting photons of light to our brains in the form of electrical signals. Beginning at the retina, a series of computer-like programs analyze, censor, delete and send certain amounts of information to various parts of the brain. This is not widely understood. Most of us were raised and taught that we ‘see’ with our eyes.
