Remembering We Are One World by Stephen Thomson

“Every person who draws the breath of life affects the mental and moral atmosphere of the world.” H.P. Blavatsky

At the end of a period of meditation, I slowly opened my eyes and saw my friend Everett, who had passed away three years earlier, standing in front of me.  Everett seemed so present – so alive – in that moment, and his vital presence remained as I came into full consciousness. Realizing what I was seeing, I was overcome by a whole range of emotions, the most intense of these being feelings of love and joy at being once again in the presence of my beloved friend.

At the end of my meditation, as the seconds ticked by, Everett turned from me and moved across the room. As he moved, a transparent barrier grew between the two of us, like the iris closing on a camera lens. I could still see Everett as he turned and faced me, yet we were now separated by the invisible film. Then I understood the purpose of Everett’s visit and the   message for me. A credible messenger for me from the other side, he came to answer some of my deepest questions.

He communicated that one birth and one death impacts the entire planet. We are all energy beings who contribute to the energy mass on the earth. Each exit from the earth, with the energy we embody while alive, impacts the very farthest reaches of the earth. Everett communicated that even his life – a simple life, unremarkable in many ways – shifted the content of earth’s energy, creating lasting changes in people’s lives across the planet. To have an intellectual understanding of this law is easy. The real work begins when we live in this consciousness.

Older now, I am grateful for a life of so many rich experiences that any perceived differences between myself and others have all but evaporated. To separate myself from others is no longer my natural impulse.

At the time of this experience, I had been studying and meditating on two spiritual topics. The first was about what happens when we die. Second, I wanted an answer to the question, what effect does my energy create by being present on the earth plane?

My thinking on what comes after death, from a spiritual perspective, diverged from my Christian education and rested on thoughts that were more loving and less scary.

As for the energetic effect, this is beyond any need or satisfaction based on my ego. Central to all spiritual teachings is the law that we are all one world and one people. If my energy is, in fact, this law in action, I want to become ever more aware of my role and the impact I am creating in the world around me.

And then Everett was gone from my life again.

Treating Dementia With Qi Gong, Tai Chi, and Yoga

| by Merlian News

Do you know someone who suffers from dementia? Witnessing a loved one slowly lose their memory and reasoning skills can be a very painful experience. Dementia is a persistent syndrome that tends to get worse over time–affecting memory, thinking, and behavior. It is distinct from Alzheimer’s in that Alzheimer’s is a specific disease, but general dementia can stem from a variety of unrelated brain illnesses.

How Meditation Can Affect Your Heart, Brain, and Creativity

Many people have tried to sell me on the idea of meditating. Sometimes I try it, and have an incredible, refreshing experience. But usually, as I close my eyes and focus on my breathing, while I know that I’m supposed to be letting all thoughts go, more and more fly through my mind. Soon I have a laundry-list of “to-dos” in my head … and then my legs fall asleep. It’s all downhill from there…. www.themindunleashed.org

What is Mindfulness, by Linda Lehrhaupt, PhD

Mindfulness meditation has been described in many ways in recent years, but I still find that one of the definitions by Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, is very helpful. He says that mindfulness is “paying attention on purpose in the present moment, non-judgmentally. He added in an interview on YouTube…“as if your life depended on it.”

The Science Is In: Meditation Affects Aging and Telomere Length

Science is all about precision, controlled studies, and measurable, repeatable results. So for years researchers resisted working on alternative practices such as meditation, dismissing the few studies done as “fuzzy science,” “subjective,” or “impossible to duplicate.” But as research methods have advanced, so has the accuracy of the latest research. There is ample evidence now that stress leads to increased risk of health problems and that meditation reduces stress. What’s new are the studies showing how stress is related to aging and telomere length.

Meditation, Spirituality & Brain Changes with Dr. Andrew Newberg

You’ve probably heard of Dr. Andrew Newberg’s work on meditation, even if you didn’t realize it — he’s the scientist who did the ground breaking studies of Tibetan monks meditating that showed how dramatically it changed the brain . He went on to study nuns praying and Sikhs chanting and found similar brain states as those of meditation. His ground breaking work led to the development of a new field of science called “neurotheology,” which studies the relationship between the brain and religious experience.
