This Month’s Recommended Merlian News Articles:

 

Merryn’s Musings by Merryn Jose

Meditation, Mystical Experiences & Brain Mapping

I am a huge fan of Dr. Joe Dispenza’s books, CDs and DVDs . First featured on the documentary, What the Bleep Do We Know? this leading neuroscientist and lecturer has written such best sellers as Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind and Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One. His latest book, Becoming Supernatural, builds on his previous work.

Liminal Moments by Cheryl Shainmark
The Buddhist Soul in Me

I am many things, but I am not a Buddhist. Still, every so often the secret Buddhist in my soul demands to be fed: lighting a little incense, placing a flower in a bowl like an offering, sweeping a spider out the door (instead of squishing it), or taking a day trip to the Chuang Yen Monastery in Carmel, NY.

Nutrition
More from The Unlikely Vegan – by Phil Shainmark

I wanted to write some more about the idea of trying something new, or changing the way you think about things. I was talking to my father in law, who is very much not a vegan, and he was saying that it’s strange to think about not eating things you like. And that’s when it hit me: the things we consume, come to define us. For years I smoked, I was a “smoker.” Even after friends started quitting, and restaurants started banning it, I still smoked. I could not picture myself without the cigarette hanging out of my mouth, or in my hand. But when my wife and I decided to quit, we quit.

Consciousness

The Tao of Being Human by Paul Mulliner

Many people assume that our consciousness, our conscious awareness of being alive as a human being, is created by the human brain. However, rather than creating consciousness, it’s possible that the brain interacts with and interprets a cosmic field of consciousness which exists as a fundamental and intrinsic element everywhere throughout the Universe, both inside us and all around us. This cosmic field of consciousness seems to have an inherent self-awareness, a self-knowing conscious awareness everywhere within itself that we can access and know intuitively if we pay attention to it.

Wellbeing/Healing
Increasing Strength with Tai Chi & Qigong

Have you been searching for a gentle, but effective form of exercise? You may want to consider Tai Chi or Qigong. Beyond increasing flexibility, research has shown that muscle, bone, and even memory strengthen with regular practice of either of these ancient Chinese practices. If you can’t picture yourself running or working out with weights, you can still get all of the benefits, and more, by incorporating these exercises into your routine. Older people in particular find tai chi and qigong easy to do and may appreciate the improvements to balance and enhanced”fall reduction.”

Science
Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Celebrates 49th Year

The Mutual UFO Network, MUFON, has been taking UFOs seriously for almost 50 years. The organization has been featured on CNN, the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic and other networks. Billed as “the world’s oldest and largest UFO phenomenon investigative body,” the site covers news, sightings, and research, as well as holding member events and conventions. One of their key aims is to elevate the field from anecdotal observations to science based data and research.
