Bernardo Kastrup - The Universe Is A Brain


Are the stars the external, second-person image of god (lowercase here so as not to personify). Us people are appendages of god, inside of it, a conscious cell of it, an aware probe so that it may keep tabs on itself.

Duncan Trussell - Everyone's Got Their Own Little Tar Pit

It's that dark place I go back to from time to time, hopefully less often as I get older, but I still find myself there, especially during the grindiest of grindiest work grinds. You know what I'm talking about, don't you? When colleagues are all on edge, fed up with one another, fed up with the monotony, the routine, acting on their spite, their envy, usually passive aggressively, but acting on it nevertheless. A feeding frenzy of civilized adults occurs. We become sharks with cold, dark hearts, dead eyes. Get out of the tar pit and bask in the spring sun. Feel the warmth. Radiate. Glow.

Chris Ryan - Hypersensitivity and Hippies

Authenticity comes in many forms. Part of fascism is blindly subscribing to uniformity, including choice of fashion (ahem...uniforms), music, and social opinions. Many hippies do just this. Part of this, in my opinion, is youth, and it's not something to hold too strongly against a young person who is trying to figure out who he really is deep down under the the skin color, the gender, the society, the conditioning, etc... People grow, but they need their community (now wider and ever more connected than ever) to nurture them and trim off the dead leaves and unfruitful branches taking up valuable energy.

Jon Kabat-Zinn - Mindfulness Can Be Enlightening Work

Get more Jon Kabat-Zinn Here

Read the below two pages from Jon Kabat-Zinn. His words might provide you with a little motivation to continue your mindfulness practice. Jack Kornfield likes to remind us that approching meditation or other mindfulness practices as if they are "grim duties" can defeat the purpose of the whole thing. Download the episode of the Mind/Body/Spirit Podcast where I read this excerpt.
