    Nassim is proving that all is interconnected,science is catching up with spirituality.
    The secret is in the so called empty space.
    In my words--that's where ultimate potential lives.

    An effective meditation [I find] is withdrawing ALL attention that is also pretty empty
    (no experience) but as you said (Chris) 'emptiness holds potential'.
    Thoughts seem to manifest fast when the ''controller/ego'' takes a back seat,
    hmm some of my observations but I still have doubts.

    Nassim Haramein ; New Era of Space & Time Travel

    Nassim Haramein has spent years researching the geometry of hyperspace, theoretical physics, cosmology, chemistry, as well as anthropology and ancient civilizations. He presented his concept about the structure of space & time, and suggested that if it was fully utilized, it could usher in a new era of space and time travel. The vacuum between atoms is not empty, but is a fluctuating energy that is the source of everything, and has discrete, quantifiable elements that could be thought of as very tiny pixels, he explained. These fluctuations are all around us, permeating everything, and organized into vortices of different sizes, he continued.

    Fusing macro and micro-systems, Haramein studied fundamental aspects of these pixels, and found them to be part of a holographic universe, in which each point represents the entire system. Further, the tiny pixels in one proton represent the mass of the universe, and the relationship of the pixels inside the proton to those outside the proton yield a solution to gravity, which can be applied to an object of any size, he said. Such findings in quantum gravity "would give us the information necessary to start being able to engineer very advanced drive propulsion systems that could bring us to the stars literally," he declared.

    The pixels could be considered little capsules of information, and you could think of time "as the memory of the structure of the vacuum," as things move through the vacuum, he noted. "In fact, this model may actually predict that memory is not a function of the brain directly but is a function of the brain accessing the information in the vacuum-- so the brain is like a radio," and if this held true, a person might be able to displace themselves anywhere in the universe, or access any time period, he suggested. "It opens doors that we can't even fathom today," Haramein commented, adding that he believes we're extremely close to a complete transformation in our energy production, transportation, and control of gravity.

    Biography:

    Nassim Haramein has spent most of his life researching the geometry of hyperspace, theoretical physics, cosmology, quantum mechanics, biology, chemistry as wells as anthropology and ancient civilizations. Combining this knowledge with a keen observation of the behavior of nature, he discovered a specific geometric array that he found to be fundamental to creation, and the foundation for his Unified Field Theory emerged. Mr. Haramein founded a non-profit organization, the Resonance Project Foundation, where, as the Director of Research, he continues exploring unification principles and their implications in our world today.

    BBC Horizon 2011 What is Reality

    There is a strange and mysterious world that surrounds us, a world largely hidden from our senses. The quest to explain the true nature of reality is one of the great scientific detective stories.
    Clues have been pieced together from deep within the atom, from the event horizon of black holes, and from the far reaches of the cosmos. It may be that that we are part of a cosmic hologram, projected from the edge of the universe. Or that we exist in an infinity of parallel worlds. Your reality may never look quite the same again.

    Tim Freke - Stepping into the mystery experience of life - recorded in Glastonbury UK
    Lilous Juicy Living Tour


    Timothy Freke (born 1959) is a British author of books on religion and mysticism.[1] [2] Freke is perhaps best known for his books, co-authored with Peter Gandy, which advocate a Gnostic understanding of early Christianity and the Christ myth theory,[3] including The Jesus Mysteries: Was the "Original Jesus" a Pagan God? and The Laughing Jesus: Religious Lies and Gnostic Wisdom.

    Tim is the standup philosopher -- a concept he developed from the ancient idea of a philosopher as a travelling 'spiritual entertainer' who transformed people's consciousness. He is pioneering an accessible new way to experience a profound spiritual awakening, which fully embraces our tender, vulnerable, flawed humanity. He has spent his life exploring the awakened state he often simply calls the 'mystery experience' and is able to guide others directly to it.

    In his latest book, The Mystery Experience, Tim presents a revolutionary approach to spirituality. He creates a new language of awakening, which makes profound ideas simpler to understand, so it's easier to experience a real transformation of consciousness. During his Mystery Experience Retreats he personally guides participants directly to the deep awake state.

    GCI May 2013 Full Moon Synchronized Care Focus

    http://www.glcoherence.org/templates...mail=156261627



    Welcome to the Global Coherence Initiative’s May 25, 2013 Full Moon (04:25 GMT/UTC) synchronized Care Focus. Thank you for being with us. In order for GCI members around the world to participate at a convenient time, we have chosen 4 a.m., 12:00 p.m. (noon), and 8 p.m. Pacific Time (GMT/UTC minus 7 hours ) when GCI members in the Global Care Room can do the Care Focus together.* (The following website – www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html – is a time conversion site for determining the exact time the Care Focus will take place in your Local Time Zone. Select time: 8 p.m. (date optional). Convert from: Location: U.S.A. – California – San Francisco. Convert to: Location: Select your Country/City.)

    Let’s start by connecting in the heart with everyone participating in the Global Care Room and radiating love and appreciation to each other.

    Global effects from solar flares, terrorism, ecological and climate issues, systemic breakdowns, increased overwhelm, anxiety and more – these obvious symptoms of the Shift have accelerated and this calls for more compassion and care, along with holding a higher vibration that helps to reduce the fear that can accompany the intensity of change and uncertainty.

    Research has shown that alpha brain waves synchronize to the heart’s coherent rhythm, enabling us to maintain balanced perspectives and inner stability through challenges. Collectively radiating heart coherence helps to create an easier transition through the ongoing Earth changes and their effects on humanity’s energetic fields. Though coherent love can be helpful beyond understanding, we’ve already seen that there are certain planetary changes and situations that we can’t change and have to adjust to. That’s always been so – it’s just more intensified through this transitional period. This is where compassion is especially helpful for supporting and comforting the individual and collective humanity through these changes.

    Also, practicing coherence helps to align us with our heart’s intuitive intelligence for guidance and solutions to personal and global challenges. We are all connected through the heart, as well as through the internet and social media. With collective, heart-focused care, we can ease some of the hardships of these changes and help each other adjust to the situations that we can’t change. These intensities won’t last forever, but we can move through them more gracefully if we don’t put a timer on them.

    Care Focus – Coherent Love and Compassion

    Relax and breathe in love and appreciation for a few minutes to increase your heart coherence.
    Now see yourself connected in the heart with Global Coherence Initiative participants and all caring beings, while aligning with the increased love and compassion that’s radiating from universal source through this full moon period.
    From a place of inner-stillness, see and feel this coherent love and compassion streaming like sunshine throughout the consciousness of humanity.
    Now direct the focus of love and compassion to the highly stressed areas on the planet that you are aware of, connected with, or to wherever your heart guides you.
    Close by seeing and feeling the increase of our hearts’ collective and personal intuitive guidance for meeting our challenges effectively while moving into the next vibration of consciousness, peace and the space "to breathe out."

    Please note: We just finished writing this Care Focus when we were informed that one of the strongest tornadoes ever to strike the United States just hit near Oklahoma City with winds over 200 mph giving it a preliminary F5 rating – on the scale that measures tornado intensities. Since it just has happened, we don’t know the full extent of the damage, but let’s also direct our love and compassion to the people caught in this disaster.

    After 15 minutes

    You can continue to do the Care Focus in the Global Care Room, if convenient, after the full moon period, as this will help raise the vibratory rate of the personal and collective field environment.

    Thank you for your participation in this Care Focus.

    The GCI Steering Committee and Staff
    For those of you who are new participants in the synchronized Care Focus, you can see your green marker and the gold light points of others around the world in the Care Room at the same time. Realize that one gold light can represent a family, a group or an entire audience viewing the Care Room and doing the Care Focus together.

    * To join the GCI Care Focus in the Global Care Room, you can enter the room directly from www.globalcarerooms.org. First time users will need to sign up for access. You can use the e-mail and password that you use for the Global Coherence Initiative website. Then, simply log-in with your e-mail and GCI password.

    I once told a friend (to make it more clear to me as well)(don't remember the exact words):
    ''When you were a child you saw that you were a child, and now you are grown up you see that you are an adult.
    Therefore you cannot be the body but that which sees its development.'' He thought for a second and said: ''That's true actually''.

    Former skeptic Dr. Eben Alexander says he saw God during his near-death experience. Watch as he describes the experience—and reveals what God looks like.

    The introduction that he saw God is misleading---he saw God as Totality--- that is there is no place that God is not.

    Mindfulness proven as effective at treating depression as medication

    Mindfulness proven as effective at treating depression as medication
    Via naturalnews.com, 29 May 2013 - People who suffer from symptoms of depression have yet another way to deal with it that does not involve taking dangerous antidepressant drugs. A new study published in the journal Archives of General Psychiatry has found that practicing mindfulness, a meditative routine that involves focusing on the present and relishing the moment, is at the very least just as effective as antidepressants when it comes to alleviating depression symptoms - and mindfulness causes no harmful side effects!

    mindfulness

    Specifically those in remission from depression are said to benefit from the alternative therapy, which can be achieved in as little as 30 minutes a day. Participants who learned how to practice mindfulness on their own, and who faithfully did it every day in conjunction with regular meetings with a therapist, were found to benefit just as much as, if not more than, those who took antidepressants in accordance with the conventional model.

    Because of the immense dangers associated with antidepressants, which include suicidal and homicidal tendencies, not to mention worse depression symptoms, many people are now shying away from taking them. According to the latest statistics, nearly half of all people who come out of depression do not end up taking their prescribed antidepressants, many out of concern that they will further damage their health by doing so. A better option, it appears, is to naturally release the trapped emotional energy that keeps many people enslaved to depression by utilizing mindfulness therapy.

    "It's kind of like going to the gym and working a muscle, except in this case you're not working a muscle in your body, you're working the muscles in your brain that help you understand and control your emotions," says Zindel Segal from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, Ontario, about the benefits of mindfulness therapy.

    Mindfulness therapy can also alleviate anxiety, chronic pain

    A similar study recently published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience found that mindfulness therapy can also benefit those who suffer from mild depression symptoms, frequent and infrequent anxiety, and even chronic pain. As it turns out, certain unhealthy patterns of thinking have been shown in neuroimaging scans to actually fuel the brain activity associated with depression and even pain, which means new ways of thinking have the potential to undo these patterns in a positive way.

    "Mindfulness Therapy is, in some ways, like a cat-and-mouse game in which you develop the finely tuned attention of a cat, forever watchful and patient, as it sits in front of a mouse hole, waiting for its prey to emerge," explains Dr. Peter Strong, Ph.D., in a piece for Psychology Today. "In our case the prey are not mice, but the countless negative thoughts and emotional reactions that emerge from the shadows of our conditioned mind."

    Though it admittedly takes more time out of each day to effectively employ the benefits of mindfulness therapy as opposed to popping an antidepressant, the benefits of the treatment and the avoidance of side effects are well worth it, say its advocates. And the good news is that it is becoming easier to learn and engage in mindfulness therapy as online resources are increasingly able to deliver its benefits without the need to visit a therapist in person.

    Solar Revolution is an enlightening and award-winning movie that explores the remarkable correlation between escalations in solar activity and human achievement.

    World-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers and distinguished scientists and experts present compelling evidence of a stunning correlation between escalations in solar activity and human achievements. See what Global Coherence Initiative (GCI) Research Coordinator and Institute of HeartMath (IHM) Director of Research Dr. Rollin McCraty, featured in Solar Revolution, say about the shift in global consciousness and the heart’s critical role.

    Global Coherence Initiative

    Our Shared Purpose

    From the start, everyone at the Global Coherence Initiative and Institute of HeartMath has maintained a shared purpose: raise people’s coherence and consciousness; improve their lives; and create a planet where individuals and families can live peacefully and happily and realize their dreams.

    Our shared purpose and commitment have led to exciting discoveries, humbling achievements and a desire to strive for more.
    Rigorous scientific studies show greater interconnectedness of things than commonly believed. Intuition is accessible to everyone via sincere expression of qualities of the heart.
    Our intuition motivates us to be kind, caring and responsible, for each other and the planet.

    Hi Chris,

    In acknowledgement that there are many ways to skin a cat when it comes to practicing mindfulness 101, what is an effective technique/practice that an ill disciplined depressed/anxious novice like me can do for 30min on a daily basis?

    I've been on anti depressants in the past and benefited enormously, but have never wanted to rely on them and thus have been without them for several years. In general, I've coped, but far too often I find myself trapped in thoughts of fear, envy/jealousy and a relentless anxiety that can spike nastily, particularly under stress.

    Cheers,

    Napping

    Thanks for sharing Napping, that takes some courage at times.

    What worked for me I got out of Eckhart Tolle "Power of Now"

    I went into the nearby park which had a pond with ducks and swans.
    I allowed myself to be totally absorbed in watching one duck or swan at a time without any comment in the head. It took a little practise but only a few days really. Then when I meditated I watched/felt the breath coming in and out at first then just allowed what ever came up to come up without entering into internal dialogue---then I started pulling the mindback to silence if there was an urge to talk to myself. One voice I could control--mine---thoughts were not mine they just arrived without permission. So I just let them be--I did not energise them by trying to push them away--just focused on the quiet part of mind or breathing.
    Now the mind is virtually silent ---no need to buy into or interact with any thought or situation.

    If I can do this so can you Napping
    I had a very stressful life and several time ulcers flared up/burst and led to me being hospitalised.
    My mind is now peaceful even though life can bring challenges.
    I dont wander into past and future except when essential- I stay in the moment.
    Love Chris

    Bruce Lipton and Tom Campbell Summit


    Chuck and Karen Robison bring you Bruce Lipton and Tom Campbell in an unprecedented interview of historic importance. These well known highly credentialed scientists will leave you with hope for the potential of positive evolution for the human race through science with Love at it's core.

    www,whatifitreallyworks.com On June 26, 2012, in association with MBT Events, we took Tom and Pamela Campbell to the home of Bruce and Margaret Lipton for an historic discussion between these two giants of New Science. Bruce Lipton is an Epigenetic Biologist and Tom Campbell is a NASA Physicist and each has stepped outside the box of their respective disciplines to bring to us what we believe will be the future where Biology and Physics share the same concepts and understandings and will bring us much closer to a unified scientific interaction with our whole cosmos.
