Perception Vs. Reality
"Everything I did — the way I walked, talked, ate, and even slept — was rushed… What I thought was inspiration was really nothing but noise…" Russell Simmons
Without the expansion of our own awareness we are stuck on the hamster wheel made possible by programmed ignorance. One can't "change the world" until one changes themselves because the world is a collective expression of human totality. How do we do this? Step one: Meditation. Meditation restores balance to the autonomic nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems), which by definition is responsible for control of the bodily functions not consciously directed, such as breathing, the heartbeat, and digestive processes.
"The sympathetic nervous system stimulates production of stress hormones, increasing blood pressure and heart rate and preparing us for the "flight or fight" response. The parasympathetic nervous system has opposite effects of lowering the heart rate and blood pressure and stimulating the release of "feel good" hormones. The vagus nerve controls the PNS via production of acetylcholine, a potent anti-inflammatory agent which has been shown to stimulate regeneration of tissues, improve memory and creativity and promote well-being." - Dr. Kavitha Chinnaiyan
You are NOT your brain. Your brain is not your master, it is the conduit, the computer system that responds to stimuli and makes it conscious in term of our five sense perception. Once you open yourself up to all possibilities, you open your mind and subsequently the ignorance/insanity/madness of the world is gone. It's that simple. Open to a sense of possibility - ALL possibility.
"You can only truly learn by uncovering the unknown. Everything else is repeating." - Julian Websdale
