The Practice:
Receive generosity.

Anti-Aging Needs a Body That Never Ages

Anti-Aging Needs a Body That Never Ages - Deepak Chopra

We live in a time when breakthroughs are sought to prevent or reverse aging. For the longest time aging itself, although a universal process, was a deep mystery. There is no gene for aging, and nothing is completely predictable, because no two people age alike, not even identical twins.

Operating from Peace or Pain

Operating from Peace or Pain - Panache Desai

Everyone on the planet is either operating from their peace or from their pain. When you trace everything you can’t stand about the world back to its origin, you’ll find pain. 

When I look at the people I grew up with, they didn’t know any better. Were they bad people? No, they just didn’t have a choice. Society wasn’t constructed for them to thrive, the system wasn’t constructed for them to get ahead. People in states of survival make choices that don’t make any sense to other people who aren’t surviving.

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: Stacks of Wheat

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: Stacks of Wheat

So many thought Monet
was making it up,
imagining wildly
how things might be
if God held them closer.

But what he did
was much braver.
Like a human microscope
he kept looking and looking
as warmth left the trees
as waves remade the sea
as loss slowed into peace
undoing hard men.


He watched
strange flowers open
where only silence had been.

He focused so far in
that everything shimmered.
He proved by the strength
of his attention that
nothing can keep
light out.

It’s a small leap
to say that love
works this way—
a light that lives in the bones,
just waiting to be seen.

So why not
prop your heart
out in the open
like the easel that it is
and dab its blood
on everything.

6 Best Ways to Spend Time with Your Family

6 Best Ways to Spend Time with Your Family

Many of us take our families for granted even though it is the biggest source of happiness and peace in our lives. If you feel like you should boost the time you spend with your kids, spouse or parents, there are many ideas on how you can spend that time productively. Here are a few best ideas that will make your family time unforgettable: 

Cook and eat together

The habit of having at least one meal together a day will change your family dynamic for the better. This meal can be either breakfast or dinner if you can’t have lunch together because of work or school. Use this time to share your feelings and thoughts, offer encouraging words, discuss your day and share a lot of laughs. If you have time, you can prepare weekend meals together. Gather interesting new recipes, buy groceries and do your best to recreate meals around the world. This is a great opportunity to learn about different cultures and foods and expand your menu.

It's the Mothers Who Will Fight

It's the Mothers Who Will Fight - Maria Shirver
“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get—only with what you are expecting to give—which is everything.”  —Katharine Hepburn

I've Been Thinking...

I hope you had a Happy Mother’s Day, my friends!

I cannot help but think of my own mother. In fact, I’ve been thinking about her all week. I’ve even been talking to her all week. Yes, I have. Even though she has been gone more than a decade, I still turn to her for guidance.

Solving The Cosmic Riddle: The Road Less Traveled

Solving The Cosmic Riddle: The Road Less Traveled - Deepak Chopra

Some years ago it was considered a secret that explaining the universe had reached a dead end. Only the most informed scientists talked about it, but eventually a major shift occurred, and the public caught on. Instead of a Theory of Everything, which had been the holy grail of physics, a state of confusion, conflicting theories, advanced mathematics, and wild out-of-the-box speculations defined the mess that had come about. No one could say where space, time, matter, and energy came from, and they still can’t.

Demonstration

Demonstration - Temple Hayes

The demonstration of our good is evident through the laws of life which are always working.We have the ability to demonstrate and measure our good by being able to see and create what we desire. Many people do not believe they can have what they desire; therefore, they do not ask for what they truly want.They believe that to gain their desires they must rely upon themselves and their limited resources rather than asking God.We say in Unity,“we ask what and leave the how up to God.” How big is our demonstration? How big is our belief and how strong is our faith in God?

How Encouraging Words Help Uplift One's Spirit

How Encouraging Words Help Uplift One's Spirit

Words—no matter how intangible they seem—hold so much meaning. 

Because of words, we can tell our stories, share our dreams, and mouth our aspirations. They can spark a revolution and inspire people to push for a meaningful cause. 

At the same time, words are powerful enough to become weapons of negativity. They can hurt, alienate, and discriminate. Words can become too hateful and judgmental, that is why we should use them mindfully.

Life is “Edutainment”

Life is “Edutainment” - Panache Desai

Life is a movie and William Shakespeare was right when he wrote that all of the world is a stage and all the men and women are merely players. Writers have keen observation and they observe life. Comedians do the same, observing human behavior.

Discerning The Difference Between Lies and Truth

margaret.5.5
One of the major challenges in being in a body is to learn to discern the difference between information that is generated from our own individual mind, and information that comes through to us from spirit - as well as what’s a lie and what’s the truth coming from others and the media.

Especially today, with so much polarized thinking being thrown at us, it’s vitally important to be able to tell the difference between lies and truth.

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: The Way

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: The Way

When a horse runs, it leaps
and touches down by turns.

In just this way, our life is always
moving between joy and sorrow.

Trying to avoid this is its own
sorrow, like a mad bird trying
to escape the sky.

Rather, our call is to help each
other rise and help each
other land.

A Question to Walk With: In conversation with a friend or loved one, tell the story of how someone helped you rise and land.

This is from my book of poems in progress, The Tone in the Center of the Bell.

This Uncertain Moment Is Your Gift

This Uncertain Moment Is Your Gift - Maria Shriver

This Uncertain Moment Is Your Gift | Maria Delivers Commencement Address to University of Michigan


Good morning, Michigan! I’m really excited to be here today in the Big House to celebrate YOU, the class of 2022!

Now, let me be honest: I initially said no to the invitation to be your speaker. I said I had a scheduling conflict, and that I was already planning to be here next weekend for my son Christopher’s graduation. He was part of the class of 2020, the only class in Michigan history to not have a graduation ceremony. Thank you, Covid! But now, finally, his class will have their own moment to shine right here next Saturday!

The Enormous Importance Of Bewilderment

The Enormous Importance Of Bewilderment - Deepak Chopra

There is a creative state of confusion that is incredibly special: bewilderment. Ordinary confusion bothers us because people find it hard to live with uncertainty. Stress is increased if you don’t know what’s going to happen next. But instead of being an anxious state like ordinary confusion, bewilderment is the exact opposite: it leads to creativity, wonder and awe. If you are really bewildered, you will experience bliss.

Peace In Our Time

Peace In Our Time - Bruce Lipton

Hello Dear Friends, Cultural Creatives & Seekers Everywhere,

As a Professor in the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine, I taught medical students the conventional insights of The Central Dogma, the notion referred to in the biological curriculum as Genetic Determinism. This is the belief that genes “control” our biological traits, including our anatomy, our behavioral and our emotional traits.” Simply, our lives are “programmed” in the DNA (genes) we acquired from our parents at conception.

While that was the conventional story in the classroom, my research on stem cells in 1967 revealed an alternative reality. The clonal cell culture studies showed that genetically identical cells grown in chemically different culture media (their “environment”) expressed different developmental fates. The research emphasized that Environment controls genes!!! Twenty-three years later, science officially recognized this new awareness as the revolutionary new scientific field of Epigenetics. Epigenetic science emphasizes the role of “Nurture” over Nature.

As far as we know, we did not choose our genes; we cannot change our genes if we don’t like their traits; and on top of that, we are taught that genes turn on-and-off by themselves. For example, when people say that a cancer gene (oncogene) turns “on,” they are emphasizing the idea that genes make decisions that control our fate. Genetic determinism states that genes “control” our lives and we cannot in turn “control” our genes … we are powerless victims of our heredity. This leads to the notion that cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc., “runs” in families because of inherited genes. With this belief, Nature, not Nurture, controls our life experiences.

“A human body is a “skin-covered” culture dish, containing about 50 trillion cells growing in the original culture medium, our blood. Relevance: It does not make a difference if a cell is grown in a plastic culture dish or a skin covered culture dish, genetic activity and behavior are controlled by the chemistry of the laboratory’s culture medium or the body’s blood.

Aha! The final insight is that blood chemistry is controlled by the brain serving as an information processor that translates images from the mind into complementary, gene-regulating chemistry in the blood. Hormones, neuropeptides, growth factors and molecules of emotion represent blood-borne factors that control genes and behavior.

A fundamental principle of quantum physics is that consciousness creates the character of our lives. How’s that working out for you ? … are you manifesting Heaven-on-Earth ? Very few are. The reason is that programs in the subconscious mind control our behavior around 95% of the day , acting as an “autopilot” when the creative conscious mind is engaged in thought. Problems arise because greater than 50% of subconscious behavioral programs represent disempowering, self-sabotaging, and limiting beliefs, which obviously, when engaged, undermine our wishes and desires.

Big conclusion. The upside is that Epigenetics reveals that we are not victims but are actually masters of our genetics. The downside for most of the world’s population is that they are still victims, not of their genome, but of the programs in their mind. The creative (self) conscious mind provides for our wishes, desires, and aspirations, while the subconscious mind is a “hard-drive” engaging behavioral programs derived from instincts, life experiences and knowledge provided by parents, teachers, and spiritual leaders.

The good news is that to thrive into the future, we don’t need to alter our genetics … it’s a lot easier than that. All we have to do is rewrite limiting self-conscious beliefs that prevent us from experiencing our wishes and desires. Armed with the empowering knowledge of the role of “self” in manifesting life’s desires, individuals will gain the “self-empowerment” that will enable them to heal the planet and provide for a healthy, sustainable civilization.

Please support our evolution by spreading this “Good News"


The science described in Spontaneous Evolution illuminated the fact the human evolution is predicated on all people recognizing they are the equivalent of “cells” collectively forming the body of a super-organism, Humanity. With the biological insights described above, in conjunction with this month’s accompanying video, we can understand how divisive, polarizing cultural and religious programs are impeding the survival of civilization now under threat of the self-imposed 6th Mass Extinction Event.

With Love and Light,

Bruce
