Deep mind

Peter Russell, England

(Submitted by The Art of Living Team)

Science has largely ignored the subject of consciousness, and for seemingly sound reasons. First, consciousness cannot be weighed, measured, or observed in the way that material objects can.

Second, scientists have sought to arrive at universal objective truths, truths that are not dependent upon an observer’s viewpoint or state of mind; they have deliberately avoided subjective considerations.

We all try to manifest things through our intentions, sometimes they work, but more often, they don't. This is because we are in our ego, rather than higher consciousness, when we intend. But how do we change that?

In order to manifest the world we so desire, we must first choose to create from a place of love, rather than react from a place of fear. When we come from a place of fear, that fear will cancel the positive intention we send out to the universe. Said another way, no matter what we intend to happen, if it is driven from that place of fear, we will find our intention lost in that fear.

"The Church says; The body is a sin. Science says: The body is a machine. Advertising says: The body is a business. The body says: I am a fiesta." After naming the thieves who have attempted to steal our bodies, Eduardo Galeano, the author of this poem, gives the body the last word, "I am a fiesta." A celebration, a wonderful song, a dance of many rhythms and moods. The body is both the party and the gift we bring to the party. Perhaps the only real synonym for body is life.

Communication: the essence of life

Communication is an endless stream of energy, existing throughout all realities and realms of existence, endlessly transmitting different kinds of information from one source to another.

Preksha Meditation

Acharya Mahapragya, India

(Submitted by The Office of Acharya Mahapragya)

The first preparative step to meditation begins with the practice of one-pointedness. Our senses are attracted to external subjects. We need to redirect them inwards. This process the Jain agamas (Scriptures) call Pratisanlinta ; its practice helps in increasing concentration and reducing instability.

No vitamin D.
Lots of shadows.
Branches speak.
The moon beams.

People creep.
Books are shut.
Doors are locked.
Not a mouse stirs.

Seeking light.
Glowing teeth.
Streets are silent.
No heartbeat.

Restless heart.
Give me dawn.
Ray of light.
Jazz and java.
