Editor’s Desk: Optimism: An Antidote to Worry

One of the keys I’ve learned about living with grace in a chaotic world is to be optimistic – optimism is an antidote to worry. I recently came across this excellent quote from Chris Hardwick. It’s quoted in the book Drawing on the Dream: Finding My Way by Art by artist Denise Kester. “Worry is a misuse of your imagination.” That says a lot. We often talk about imagination being a uniquely human capacity. Whether or not this is true, imagination pervades our existence and influences most everything we do. It was Albert Einstein who once said, “Imagination is more

A New Scientific Paradigm Where Consciousness Is Fundamental And Matter Is Derived From It with Mark Gober

Scientific materialism is the reigning paradigm of scientific inquiry. It is the notion that physical matter is fundamental in the universe. Materialism assumes that matter produces consciousness and holds that the brain produces consciousness. Therefore, when your brain dies, your consciousness dies. Gober has compiled extensive research that turns scientific materialism upside down and purports that consciousness is the fundamental basis of all reality, including matter. He gives examples from many reputable physicists who concur that all matter derives from consciousness. All this raises the question of whether or not life is finite. Gober says, “What I think the evidence points

Restoring Meaning And Dignity To End-Of-Life Care with Katy Butler

We live in a time when advanced medicine can give us the ability to live longer and longer but ultimately death is a reality. Advanced medicine, most especially conveyor-belt medicine, is not set up to prepare us for a peaceful death. The final reality of death is unavoidable but the path to it is unpredictable. No matter how much we want to control things, disabilities can arise suddenly in the form of heart attacks, strokes, or accidents to name a few. Or, we can find ourselves in the thrall of Western medicine when we or a loved one gets a

Spotlight: LSD: Enriched Realities

Contrary to the scientific belief that consciousness originates in the brain, research is now showing that consciousness is not created in the brain but that the brain functions as a filtering mechanism for consciousness. We can imagine that consciousness is like the sun and our thoughts are like clouds that filter out pure consciousness. If the clouds go away a greater field of consciousness can be experienced. For example: people report ultra-real experiences during near-death episodes in which there is almost no brain function and sometimes when there is no brain function at all. Some neuroscientists have suggested that during

Help New Dimensions With The Project Of Digitizing The Timeless Wisdom Of The Archive

  In our previous studio, when we conducted interviews the guest was surrounded by shelves and shelves of white boxes that contained the tapes of previous guests.

Rewiring Our Brains For Effectiveness And Well-being with Linda Graham, MFT

Graham points out that it is possible to train our brains, our bodies, and our hearts to access our intuitive wisdom, not only to get through the tough times but to grow and become more conscious in the process. This training is supported by research scientists who have found that combining mindfulness and neuroscience, which includes neuroplasticity, can lead us to more resilience and well-being. She describes the five intelligences of the body and mind and tells us, “We’re able to actually regulate the responses of our automatic nervous system so that we’re not too revved up [with] too much anxiety
