The Mystery of Illness
June 14th, 2010
Most people assume that germs and genes cause disease. The germ theory has brought us a long way, and genetic theory promises to take us even further. But there is still a mystery surrounding why certain people get sick while others don’t. For example, studies show that if cold virus is placed directly into a person’s nose, the chance of getting a cold is…

As we get older many of tend to get the impression that time is speeding up and that things are happening so much more quickly. In many ways this is actually true… although time itself is pretty constant and I’m not sure it is actually speeding up. However, what is occurring is that changes and shifts are happening far more often.
There is a lot of information that one can find on the internet if doing a search for “2012” and most of it is not to do with the Olympics ☺ There are lots… Continue

When we sit down to meditate, we let our bodies know that it is okay to be still and rest.
No Hard Edges
Creating Space In The Body
When our minds are cluttered with too many thoughts and information, our bodies respond by trying to take action.
Our minds and bodies are interconnected, and the condition of one affects the condition of the other. This is why meditation is such a…

Yesterday I was getting very/more upset about the oil spill when we learned the extent of the oil gushing out minute by minute. I used Twitter to ask Deepak Chopra what we can do to help FIX this madness now. Here's his response to me:…

Gratitude is a natural state of being, wired into the fabric of who we are, pulsing in every cell. Every animal in the world wakes up in a state of gratitude for being alive. We human beings on the other hand have evolved into the mental realm and with us gratitude is not always felt. But listen to the birds each morning, watch your pets. Even the sickest of dogs and cats still wake up feeling gratitude until the day it dies. It's time to come back into our bodies again, come back to loving the… Continue

You Can’t Hurry the Tao
Have you noticed that the more you hurry, the less you get done? For example, try rushing through a shower after heavy exercise and notice how your body continues to sweat profusely. Then try showering your mind down, relaxing, and allowing the water to course over you—and notice how your body feels clean without… Continue

I learned many years ago that excitement, exhuberance and high levels of creativity can often feel similar to anxiety. But they are, in actuality, the higher energies of feeling good.
None-the-less, managing these sometimes intense emotional and energetic states can be equally challenging.
I love this article today by daily om on translating and re-framing our feelings. They make a great point that even when we do feel the fear or anxiety of starting something new, it can be a… Continue

Addiction is the number one disease of civilization, and it’s directly and indirectly related to all other diseases
Most human behavior is nothing other than the avoidance of pain and the pursuit of pleasure. Whenever we experience an event, whether it’s a visit to the dentist or going on a joyride at the carnival, our consciousness registers that experience internally on a spectrum with great pain at one end and… Continue

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” Carl Rogers
Now I’m not sure about you but when I hear those words I have to admit that one of the first things I think about is the song by Cher! Hmmmm! Whilst I’m not here to talk about the veritable merits (or otherwise!) of Cher’s music, some of the words in this song are actually quite pertinent to my musings today:…

My zen dog Jersey was at it again. Sitting still in the grass, content for moments and moments, watching the breeze move branches against a clear blue sky. Taking it all in. Happy. Easy. Peaceful. Chasing butterflies and catching bees. Life is easy when you are naturally zen.

ok, so I wrote to HH the Dalai Lama today and asked him a question. I asked: if you weren't raised in a conscious "family" situation, would you still be enlightened? or (having been conditioned differently) would you have had to face the transformation all over again? I assume the answer would be "still enlightened." but would love to also know!! :)
also, was reading some of his (wonderfully jovial) answers to some other things today,…
