It wasn't until I reread the conclusions section, that something rather important occurred to me.
Specifically, that "the DNA Waves and Water (pdf) gives some linkages between mind and its effect upon chemical processes in the body (e.g. the em frequency of 7Hz of both DNA and the nervous system -- and that entered by (not in the article) deep meditative states! As I recall, light meditation (Alpha) changes brain activity to just under 14Hz, and Theta (deep meditation), changes brain wave frequency down to around 7Hz)."
Interesting to see that 7Hz figure, which is not as easily achieved in meditation. Most schools (meditative practices) are largely focused on Alpha, but for medical issues, 7Hz (Theta) states would be required, it seems!
And that's important in medical circles on issues of health and wellbeing: It's not just a matter of wishful thinking to, say, reverse cancer -- it requires deep meditative practices!
I recently thought to set straight on a forum the nonsense arguments concerning solutions to Zeno's Paradoxes. Quick fillin -- Zeno's Paradoxes are a set of paradoxes concerning the (theoretical) impossibility of physical movement. Obviously we routinely experience physical movement in our daily lives. No problem there. The theory however of how things move, is ... shall we say 'problematic'.
While visiting a friend in Barkandji Country (Aboriginal country around Wilcannia, and along the Darling River), I was given a book "Voices of the first day", by Robert Lawlor. It contains concepts and ideas which are highly congruent with my basic model of The Theory of One and All. In fact the language and ideas are strikingly similar.
In Be and Become I recounted how I'd learned via meditation courses to 'sense' the inside-ness of materials such as copper and iron, and that of plants and other materials. This has quite a practical benefit, in that by being able to 'sense' inside the material things of life, we can, for example, be more aware of the dynamics of a motor vehicle -- sensing when it needs maintenance, or when it is approaching some mechanical problems (highly pertinent when in the middle of no-where without mobile phone coverage, and other circumstances, as explained in more detail here :). The awareness is only limited to the direction in which we focus it.
Picked up an interesting book at a friend's place -- Diarmuid O'Murchu's "Adult Faith: Growing in Wisdom and Understanding"1
Diarmuid speaks of needing to engage paradox and the many related implications:
First comes paradox! ... A paradox does not make sense to our rational minds. A paradox captivates a surplus of meaning that cannot be contained with the structure of rational discourse. For an adult spirituality of our time this is a crucial issue. Adults today are rarely satisfied with compelling rational explanations; there is a "surplus of meaning" that transcends rationality, yet to mature adults it feels essential in our search for deeper meaning. The ability to embrace paradox is central to this sense of maturity.
But what most impressed me2 was his explanation of the art of 'letting go' -- as covered in a previous post I've found greater peace of mind by doing so in more substantial ways:
As explained on the About page, my focus as The Belief Doctor®1 is to work with people and provide examples and information that reveals the power and productive benefits gained from combining "masculine" and "feminine" energies in one coherent approach to life, in all areas of life. This combination – of effectively combining both 'head' with 'heart' to enable intimate, powerful and rewarding personal, business and social relationships – is recognised by leading thinkers as being crucial to ease, wellbeing, intimacy, creativity, productivity, innovation, health, wealth, fulfillment and happiness.
In recent years there's been much talk of the Law of Attraction, popularised in the film "The Secret".
As with many systems of belief, there is a great deal that is helpful and uplifting about the "Law of Attraction". We can and do attract favourable (or unfavourable) 'things' into our lives, based on our beliefs.
But the attractive principle is a deeply feminine energy - it's reliant on the receptive (on receiving); of being open and inviting.
What's missing is quite simple to see and appreciate: the masculine energy of deliberate, forceful 'action.'
