THE PHILOSOPHY OF UPWARD FALLING
It truly is one of the most amazing things about this life : it’s ability to create any type of outcome that you could possibly want.
Yet, even more amazing is life’s ability to interact with you and to consciously co-create outcomes that are POSITIVELY CHARGED. To understand this is a great key to happiness.
To top this little three-step, the most astonishing thing that you can find out about this small but relatively important truth is this: LIFE WANTS YOU TO CHOOSE POSITIVELY, AND WHEN YOU DO, THERE IS NO STOPPING THE AMAZING CO-CREATION BETWEEN YOU AND ALL OF LIFE.
To better understand this principle, it is imperative that you grasp the innate relationship between the world of the seen and the unseen or, rather, the connection between energy, matter, dark matter and anti-matter.

Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses -- and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius.
It's a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.
Elizabeth Gilbert faced down a premidlife crisis by doing what we all secretly dream of – running off for a year. Her travels through Italy, India and Indonesia resulted in the megabestselling and deeply beloved memoir Eat, Pray, Love, about her process of finding herself by leaving home.
She's a longtime magazine writer – covering music and politics for Spin and GQ – as well as a novelist and short-story writer. Her books include the story collection Pilgrims, the novel Stern Men (about lobster fishermen in Maine) and a biography of the woodsman Eustace Conway, called The Last American Man. Her work has been the basis for one movie so far (Coyote Ugly, based on her own memoir, in this...
Tapping into the findings of his latest book, The Social Animal, NYTimes columnist David Brooks unpacks new insights into human nature from the cognitive sciences -- insights with massive implications for economics and politics as well as our own self-knowledge.
In a talk full of humor, he shows how you can't hope to understand humans as separate individuals making choices based on their conscious awareness.
Writer and thinker David Brooks has covered business, crime and politics (as well as subbing in as the Wall Street Journal's movie critic) over a long career in journalism. He's now an Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times in a legendary run that started in September 2003.
His column looks deeply into the social currents that underpin American life. He's the author of Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There and On Paradise Drive: How We Live Now (And Always Have) in the Future Tense.
His newest ...
Few men have changed our everyday world of work, leisure and human communication in the way that Steve Jobs, Apple's former CEO, has done.
The scope of his impact was evident in the outpouring of tributes from around the world — voiced on Twitter as well as through makeshift memorials in front of Apple stores — following his death, from complications of pancreatic cancer, on October 5, 2011.
Steve Jobs – One Last Thing not only examines how his talent, style and imagination have shaped all of our lives, but the influences that shaped and molded the man himself. The documentary takes an unflinching look at Jobs' difficult, controlling reputation and through interviews with the people who worked closely with him or chronicled his life, provides unique insight into what made him tick.
Among those interviewed for the film are Ronald Wayne, co-founder of Apple Computer, Co. with Jobs and Steve Wozniak; Bill Fernandez, who is credit...

At some time or another it's happened to all of us. There's that certain number that pops up wherever you go. Hotel rooms, airline terminals, street addresses -- its haunting presence cannot be escaped.
Or, you're in your car, absently humming a song. You turn on the radio. A sudden chill prickles your spine. That same song is now pouring from the speaker.
Coincidence, you tell yourself. Or is it?
For most mainstream scientists, experiences like this, however strange and recurrent, are nothing but lawful expressions of chance, a creation -- not of the divine or mystical -- but of simply that which is possible. Ignorance of natural law, they argue, causes us to fall prey to superstitious thinking, inventing supernatural causes where none exist. In fact, say these statistical law-abiding rationalists, the occasional manifestation of the rare and improbable in daily life is not only permissible, but inevit...

All past generations, a scientist once observed, have lived and died in a world of illusions. Prophetically, this was said before Einstein’s relativity theory, quantum mechanics, and the discovery of atoms and DNA.
We, in the twenty-first century, are no different. We wake up in the morning and think we’re just magically here. Yet, when we examine the stuff we’re made of with our matter-microscopes, scientists have discovered that the particles seem to spring into existence with real properties only when we observe them. “It will remain remarkable,” said Nobel physicist Eugene Wigner, who laid the foundations for the theory of symmetries in quantum mechanics “in whatever way our future concepts may develop, that the very study of the external world led to the conclusion that the content of the consciousness is an ultimate reality.”
The world, it turns out, isn’t the hard, cold place we imagine waking up t...

The experience of inner peace can be described as one of serenity, tranquility and stillness. It can also be defined as the absence of struggle, anxiety and disturbance. While peace is a condition sought by individuals, politicians, groups and countries, it remains ever so elusive. When one situation is resolved, another seems to arise. With all the effort directed towards peaceful resolution, why is peace so difficult to attain?
In higher consciousness is the recognition that peace is our natural state of being. Similar to freedom, love, harmony and truth, peace is inherent within the light. It is the very essence of our being. As we experience the light, we experience peace, commonly referred to as “peace of mind.” Yet, the peace that is of the light is not of the thinking mind, but beyond the thoughts that stream through our awareness.
The experience of the light can be akin to gazing at the tranquil wat...
Question: What kind of guidance would you offer to people to remember, or be aware that we are a creative force in a creative Universe?
Eckhart Tolle: The awakening process has two aspects, or two dimensions, to it. One is the finding the Source within, as yourself. Then, [there is] bringing that into your life more and more – so that your daily life becomes interspersed with that Stillness. As your life becomes interspersed with that Stillness, the ego then begins to fade. You embody a different energy field – as if something from another dimension were coming through you into this world.
The most essential thing is the foundation for all subsequent “awakened doing”, as I sometimes call it. The world is full of people who are doing, but it’s mostly unawakened doing. This comes out of unhappy states, and creates more unhappy states. Our first task is to bring that dimension, the other dimension, into this world. With your norma...
(RisingLifeMedia.com) Understanding the need to 'leave the old ways and old life behind' can only be achieved from a completely neutral perspective, not from the perspective of one who feels to have been left behind or one who is in fear about moving within - for surely one must understand that such a belief would imply the illusion of separation, and in its own turn that belief (system) implies that one is choosing to live life from a perspective of limitation and mind.
Of course, mind does not need to be judged as it is a perfect tool for working within THIS reality; only beyond the 3D walls mind cannot perceive that which is truly experienced. As such, a dichotomy is created and those operating from the level of mind will then usually retreat to the safe and well-known spaces of life.
That being said, it will possibly become easier to understand that life from the perspective of mind is lived within parameters that humans de...
(RisingLifeMedia.com) The importance of taking action in order to create your reality is essential to understand. No problem was ever resolved by non-action; remaining passive will only ensure your reality is created for you instead of by you, this of course is not want you want. So taking action is then vital to regain control of your creation.
But how does one know which action to take? Your thoughts create your reality, the actioning of thoughts especially so. It depends on which thoughts one takes action on that creates one's reality, whichever thoughts are identified with will shape ones experience. The actioning of your thoughts is what creates your day and actioning could just mean expressing how you feel in words for example, or even just harbouring a thought will action a certain type of experience for you.
In this day and age people are so identified with their minds that they believe their thoughts are their own, goo...
