Mindful meditation: Not the solution…


A new wave of research on meditation shows that mindfulness-based treatments can effectively treat everything from depression to autoimmune disease to post-traumatic stress order. But mindfulness can also help the nearly 24 million Americans struggling with drug and alcohol addiction to find lasting recovery, according to some experts. [1]

The practice of Mindfulness involves being aware moment-to-moment, of one’s subjective conscious experience from a first-person perspective. When practicing mindfulness, one becomes aware of one’s “stream of consciousness”. [2] In each session, there’s a meditation practice as well as a practice with different cognitive and behavioral skills – for example, noticing what kind of problematic thoughts might arise, and actually writing them down and becoming familiar with them. It’s about practicing very applied skills for day-to-day living. [1]

But is conscious thinking the answer? Do we need more of mindfulness to tackle our problems? Or is thinking what is actually the SOURCE of the problems in the first place?

Life and death are not what we think they are. We are inherently immortal and yet we worry about stop being. As if Being is related to blood flowing through veins or piles of meat (“humans” they call them) moving here and there. Through our way of thinking we have ridiculed every notion of Existence, we have forgotten Philosophy and now our answer is more… thinking?

Think about it.

Stop thinking about it.

Illusions, dimensions, beliefs…

A unique experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory called the Holometer has started collecting data that will answer some mind-bending questions about our universe – including whether we live in a hologram.

Much like characters on a television show would not know that their seemingly 3-D world exists only on a 2-D screen, we could be clueless that our 3-D space is just an illusion. The information about everything in our universe could actually be encoded in tiny packets in two dimensions.

Get close enough to your TV screen and you’ll see pixels, small points of data that make a seamless image if you stand back. Scientists think that the universe’s information may be contained in the same way and that the natural “pixel size” of space is roughly 10 trillion trillion times smaller than an atom, a distance that physicists refer to as the Planck scale.

Could we live in an illusion?
Could we live in another world?
Could there be more dimensions?

We like to think too much.
We like to believe more than what we see.

But God had a simple plan.

Why not believe what you feel instead?
