When we think of improving our own Health and Wellness, we often have the perspective that has been given to us by the media, in other word there is more to consider than is socially/culturally recognized. For most of us, we are growing our understanding as more is being exposed due to the availability of the Internet. Still, marketing and advertising has learned to mask itself as “source information”, and while some of this is accurate, much of it is aimed at personal or corporate gain.
#1 - If you are practicing (practice mantra: “I am practicing balance”) in a balanced way - that induces the beginnings of balance ongoing. How? Rhythm is essential to understanding this - and something to keep learning from. If something goes in and out, left and right, and up and down in a regulated way, it can carry its own momentum into greater and greater lengths of time without an external force. The secret is that balance practiced ongoing through rhythm produces breakthrough - or what was not possible is now possible or what was not known is now known.
My greatest interest in this life is to continue to understand what connects us and what separates us, from a personal experiential perspective, from my observation of my outside world and from my inter-personal relations. I also study history, how and why it repeats itself, Cultural Traditions and Lineages of Higher Learning, all in hopes of a deeper understanding of the Human condition and our many expressions of it.
It is important to have a good strong, neutral place to begin…. a place that seeks to identify “current common imbalances” that we are sharing, as individuals, as families and as groups of smaller and larger numbers. It is equally important to keep in the highest priority our understanding and deep connection to “what is the same in all of us”. It is no longer a question of IF there is a problem; it is no longer a question as to IF we need to collectively do something.
In a general way, we may consider ourselves to be a “higher life form” on this planet, which brings up the question of how intelligence is measured? All peoples are born with a certain amount of intelligence, what we may call “Natural Intelligence”. Then of course there is what each of us is taught or learns from our experiences. These two parts of our intelligence are different for each of us & so we have many expressions of what is considered to be intelligence.
