Heartwarming Rise of Transition Towns

I do not think you have to be worried about peak oil or global warming or the "end of civilization" to see that we need to become more locally sourced, self-sufficient, and off the grid to be happier and more fulfilled as human beings. I love this idea! Growing your own food is like growing money! It's free food. - Kate

Is your town a “Transition Town“? It’s an organisation led by individuals concerned that we really need to prepare ourselves for Peak Oil and the breakdown of civilisation; that we need to become more self-sustaining. As resources become increasingly challenged, rather than being hopelessly exposed to the global supply chain, we need to be more resilient and connected locally.-->>


Ithaca - Constantine Cavafy

When you set sail for Ithaca,
wish for the road to be long,
full of adventures, full of knowledge.
The Lestrygonians and the Cyclopes,
an angry Poseidon — do not fear.
You will never find such on your path,
if your thoughts remain lofty, and your spirit
and body are touched by a fine emotion.
The Lestrygonians and the Cyclopes,
a savage Poseidon you will not encounter,
if you do not carry them within your spirit,
if your spirit does not place them before you.
Wish for the road to be long.
Many the summer mornings to be when -->>



The Nature of Nurture
and the Nurture of Nature
Have you ever wondered why, despite our best efforts, certain situations cause us to act like our parents?
While we often think of this as a learned behavioral mechanism, new research by Dr. Brian Dias from Emory University points to nature playing a role, suggesting it’s possible some information is biologically inherited through chemical changes that occur in DNA. He came to this conclusion in a study which uncovered the fact that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences—in this case, a fear of the smell of cherry blossom—to subsequent generations. This provides compelling evidence for the biological transmission of memory from the brain into the genome. -->>


Your Brain Has A DELETE Button And Here’s How To Use It!

There’s an old saying in neuroscience: “neurons that fire together wire together.”
This means the more you run a neuro-circuit in your brain, the stronger that circuit becomes. This is why, to quote another old saw, “practice makes perfect”. The more you practice piano, or speaking a language, or juggling, the stronger those circuits get.

Scientists have known this for years. However, nowadays researchers learn another part of the truth: In order to learn something, even more important than practicing is the ability to unlearn, or to break down the old neural connections. This is called “synaptic pruning”.-->>

How West and East have converged in understanding the mind

Having moved from the Renaissance idea of mind as soul, through the materialist notion of mind as brain, Western scientists are now deepening their understanding of mind as a flow of energy, capable of consciousness and cognition.

This explanation shares certain elements of the previous paradigms, while dealing with their more evident flaws. Like Descartes’s soul, the energy model is not synonymous with the body or, more specifically, the brain.  -->>



Leaving the Nest

We are all creative geniuses. You may not think of yourself as creative in the traditional sense, but every day you make a choice—consciously or unconsciously—you’re creating your life and the experiences that fill it. While many of these choices are based on familiar past experiences, when we sit down to meditate, our intention is to create a novel future.
Often times, however, when we’re trying to create something new in our life or solve a creative conundrum, we find ourselves coming up against the same walls and obstacles, and no matter -->>





This week we are focusing on Frankincense essential oil (Boswellia Carter), which has held great significance in many different cultures and religions for thousands of years. Today, this fragrant resin is transformed into an essential oil that’s valued not only in religious and spiritual practices, but also in aromatherapy and natural health.

Frankincense essential oil has long been a popular ingredient in cosmetics and used for incense. It has even been found in the remains of Anglo-Saxons and ancient Egyptians civilizations. Frankincense comes from the Boswellia genus trees, grown in African and Arabian regions, producing a gum or resin that can be steam distilled into an essential oil that harnesses -->>



Healing the Body With The Mind – and Essential Oils

One of the things I learned long ago was not to discount how much we can achieve simply by setting our minds upon achievement of a particular goal.

Healing can be achieved in the same way – by focusing our mind, attention and intention upon the area of your body where you wish healing to take place.  There are a myriad of books and authors, such as Deepak Chopra, Bruce Lipton, Andrew Weil, Bernie Siegel, and Wayne Dyer, which discuss the subject of healing the body with the mind, and I would encourage you to check them out.

My sole intent with this article is to open your mind to the possibility of using not only your mind, but also essential oils for healing.  Why?  Read on.-->>
