Happy Earth Day | Critical Beats |Chopra’s “Book of Secrets”

Hi there y’all!

In between the time that I’m trying to figure out how to fit into this world with the talents & interests that I have and what I like to do ‘-)… I also am searching…and came upon this, and I like it. Excerpts from Deepak Chopra’s “The Book of Secrets”.

Also, in the last couple days I opened an email and saw that DJ Spooky was hosting a contest to produce a song, incorporating sounds from Native American Indians of the Amazon. They provided recorded songs within their library, to which “we” create a song from a remix – in 24 hours. I did this, and realized I hadn’t really finely tuned my edits, cuz I hadn’t had enough time. And then they just announced this morning that they will extend it! yeah! so I’m about to dive back into the music software and hardware to polish what I had put together already. It’s called Critical Beats for the Climate!

Here is my song entry “Spirit_Of_Life_Beats” – remix of Indian Tribal songs, after a one day extension from the 1st deadline ‘-) Hey, it’s a little dark, but grave are the critical beats for our climate!

And here are some highlights from “The Book of Secrets”:

“The greatest hunger in life is not for food, money, success, status, security, sex, or even love from the opposite sex.

The deepest hunger in life is a secret that is revealed only when a person is willing to unlock a hidden part of the self.

We live in the Age of the Higher Brain, the cerebral cortex that has grown enormously over the last few millennia, overshadowing the ancient, instinctive lower brain.

Ultimately you have to believe that your life is worth investigating with total passion and commitment. It took thousands of tiny decisions to keep the book of secrets closed, but it takes only a single moment to open it again.

I take it literally when the New Testament says, “Ask and you will receive, knock and the door will be opened.” It’s that simple. You will know every secret about life when you can truly say I must know.

The life you know is a thin layer of events covering a deeper reality. In the deeper reality, you are part of every event that is happening now, has ever happened, or ever will happen. In the deeper reality, you know absolutely who you are and what your purpose is. There is no confusion or conflict with any other person on earth. Your purpose in life is to help creation to expand and grow. When you look at yourself, you see only love.

Ever since you and I were born, we’ve had a constant stream of clues hinting at another world inside ourselves.

The body’s wisdom is a good entry point into the hidden dimensions of life, because although completely invisible, the body’s wisdom is undeniably real — a fact that medical researchers began to accept in the mid-1980s.

Signs of intelligence began to be discovered in the immune system, and then in the digestive system…Ten years ago, it would have seemed absurd to speak of intestines being intelligent… Now it turns out that the intestines are not so lowly after all. Their scattered nerve cells form a finely tuned system for reacting to outside events — an upsetting remark at work, the threat of danger, a death in the family. The stomach’s reactions are just as reliable as the brain’s thoughts, and just as intricate. Your colon, your liver, and your stomach cells also think, only not in the brain’s verbal language. What people had been calling a “gut reaction” turned out to be a mere hint of the complex intelligence at work in a hundred thousand billion cells.”
