Enjoy Carl Swan’s Tree Song

Thanks to the power of YouTube, I am able to share this great medicine, and the story behind it. It comes from Carl Swan, and his story begins:

“This is a song that came to me about 5 years ago when things weren’t exactly going the way I had envisioned them to be. I was at one of the lowest times of my life and when that happened I turned especially to the gift I was given and my drum. Rather then thinking about myself in what i was going through, I sat alone and looked towards the sweat lodge near the bushes and thought about what the world was going through. The world as i know it is home to my children, knowing that I am alive and my children are alive, breathing the same air that i breathe.”

Visit Carl’s YouTube listing for more of this story; enjoy.

Consciousness

“Thomas Nagel is not crazy,” an Oct. 23, 2012, Prospect Magazine article written by Malcolm Thorndike Nicholson, raises many provocative questions.

…what if science is fundamentally incapable of explaining our own existence as thinking things? What if it proves impossible to fit human beings neatly into the world of subatomic particles and laws of motion that science describes? The philosopher Thomas Nagel thinks the materialist scientific worldview cannot explain consciousness. Is he right?

I invite you to read on here. Your feedback and additional ideas on consciousness are welcome here.

Featured Video: Antonio Damasio: The quest to understand consciousness from TEDtalksDirector on YouTube. “Every morning we wake up and regain consciousness — that is a marvelous fact — but what exactly is it that we regain? Neuroscientist Antonio Damasio uses this simple question to give us a glimpse into how our brains create our sense of self.”

Meaning of life

From ONE THE MOVIE on YouTube:

ONE The Movie is compared to The Secret as holding a key to life’s meaning. ONE reaches the soul with the magic of The Secret. This video featues a commentary on the Meaning of Life by people featured in the full movie. www.onetheproject.com

ONE takes the viewer on a remarkable journey toward self-reflection and greater consciousness. It powerfully provides a clear direction to today’s mantra for change.

The perfect prayer

Originally posted on Jan 10, ’04 6:48 AM by zzzoutdoorgirl for everyone.

Because I have grown up in a Christian environment that is bible based, I often pray the Lord’s Prayer, when I want to begin to leave the mundane and focus on the spiritual.

What would a Gnostic’s prayer be?

No answers are wrong……..I just want to know what you guys would think.

Lets say a friend has a son that gets put in jail for a long time, and you want her to be comforted, or something like that.

How would you pray about it? Would you even pray?

My old prayers dont seem to work if God is within me? Do I pray to myself?

Just interested in what you all might think.

zzz – That is an interesting question. How do you pray? As an Gnostic? I have to remind myself occasionally – well I still consider myself a Christian. hmm………

The Girl Effect: The Clock is Ticking

This video is courtesy of the girleffect Channel on YouTube.

The Girl Effect is a solution to poverty, where the hope is that, if we do our part, 600 million girls in the developing world will do the rest. The clock is ticking… maybe a 12-year-old girl is the solution the world needs right now.

Thoughts?

What is the essence of Kabbalah?

Kabbalah has been clouded in confusion, legend, myth and misrepresentation because authentic Kabbalah has been hidden for thousands of years … until now.

For more information on this video, view the full article from The Kaballah Blog.

Article in Kabbalah Today Issue 6: All are One and One is All
To a Kabbalist, it is no secret that the whole of reality exists within us. But there is more to this, for despite the endless variety of minerals, plants, animals, and people that we see around us, Kabbalists say only one creature was created. The only difference between us and the Kabbalists is in how we perceive that single creature.
