Human Altering

Thanks Pulse for this great post. One thing I have noticed since I have been retired and with a lot more time to explore things and read along with pursuing hobbies I enjoy. Is the observation of nature it truly is amazing To see it being slowly destroyed in the name of progress is a shame If we all had that retirement time we would speed up the process of regress. World peace would help along with just the total restructure of society has it is today. A whole different mindset is needed that’s for sure. Governments have gone sour its time they be removed.

A Powerful Life-Altering Realization Any Human Can Have

How often are we stretching our consciousness beyond our everyday routine?

It’s one thing to know something, and it’s another to truly practice it. In that spirit, profound realizations about the nature of our reality can be practiced. Better said, they can be embodied.

But how often do we look to our body to hear or feel how it responds to profundity?

In our modern reality, one that has strayed far from our nature, we wake up, get ready, eat breakfast and go to work or school.

During our travels, we might get annoyed at the traffic and dread that we are all headed in the same direction at the same time.

We get to work and partake in whatever we need to in order to achieve the goals set out for the day. We often immerse ourselves in our actions without ever realizing the beauty that is happening around us at all times.

We might not deeply pay attention to what we do or how it feels for our bodies to move throughout the day. Once our day is complete we head home, hopefully spend some time with family and then repeat the process the next day.

I don’t believe life is quite this simple, but many of us experience it this way because of how we focus our attention. (Part of the described mundanity is also a result of societal design, which I believe is severely flawed, but that’s for a different discussion.)

In this built up seriousness, we might allow small things to trigger us easily, proceed to blow them out of proportion and brood on them for hours or even days.

When things can become this serious it doesn’t feel so good. We also lose sight of viable solutions and creativity within this state of mind and being, which halts our individual and societal progress.

To stretch our consciousness a bit, we don’t even have to look at things on a “spiritual” level to realize that we are just a speck in the entirety of our universe of all that is.

This is why “The Pale Blue Dot” is such a significant image.

The Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of planet Earth taken on February 14, 1990, by the Voyager 1 space probe from a record distance of about 6 billion kilometres.

It reminds us not to take life too seriously.

Take a moment and close your eyes. Take a deep breath in, and a deep breath out. Feel your body. Can you release tension? Can you sense a deeper nature within you? Can you feel and see beyond the seriousness of our minds? This image can inspire us to come back to these questions.

I’ve taken my somatic clients to a place of peace and calm in their bodies, even when they enter the session from a place of chaos. Without avoiding the feeling of our chaos and bypassing it, we can pendulate from that chaos to the peace (or good feelings) that are always with us but are beyond our current focus.

It’s like switching your consciousness and awareness from only the bad or tense to acknowledging the spectrum within your body. Integrating the whole.

This has a healing effect.

How often do you notice and truly feel the peace and potential in your body amongst other feelings? Bringing the totality of ourselves – mind, spirit, and body – into our awareness and consciousness is to practice and integrate the totality of our experience.

It creates greater clarity, more freedom, and a level of consciousness that can birth a new world.

It sounds cheesy, but world peace is ultimately up to us, not anyone else or any external factor. Change starts within.
