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.”

| Mauer Mob & Berlin Wall of Sound |

I was on my way to go to participate in this event – forming a Wall of People along the path of the former Wall that had been erected by the USSR
calling thembselves the Mauer Mob, Mauer is the German word for Wall.

organized by one of the members of the Berlin couchsurfing group
couchsurfing.org

However, as I had hosted this past weekend (as a couchsurfer member) two guys visiting Berlin from the Netherlands, they happened to mention this other event which was coordinated to make a statement about the day the Wall fell, 20 years ago on November 9th.

I bicycled over to Mauer Park to join in the 15 minutes of creating a Human Wall, and approached a group in the drizzle thinking that they were there for this event, but observed that all of these people had instruments slung around their shoulders.  I asked a couple of them if they were there for the Mauer Mob, of which they hadn’t a clue, and didn’t speak German.  Soon I put it together that these were the Dutch participants of the Berlin Wall of Sound.

This was Holland’s statement about the falling of the Wall…creating “A Wall of Sound”.  I was informed that a rock group “Noir” out of Groningen, Holland (NL) decided to contribute to the world their constructive statement about boundaries, by building bridges through sound rather than separating people through barriers of Nationalism or Religion….that’s my idea of their intent anyway.

206 was the rough number of participants that the organizers were looking for, to represent the number of people who died attempting to flee the East during the time period that the wall had been erected in and around Berlin.

An article about this event is here.  an aritcle in timeslive is here.

and here is a german article about it.

Here’s the myspace blog created by some members of the band “Noir” regarding this event which took place yesterday.  I’m sure that the recording of the event will be uploaded soon, if it hasn’t been already!

here’s their blog on myspace.

Salut from Berlin!

Oct. 24th | Global Day of Climate Action | 350.org

Flashback!

Silent Climate Parade

Oct. 24th | Global Day of Climate Action | 350.org

October 24th is the ‘Global Day of Climate Action’ organized by Bill McKibben, who’s behind 350.org.  350 ppm are the top level of particulates – carbon dioxide particles in parts per million – that can be tolerated in our atmosphere in order to reach a sustainable level, to make a dent along the global warming axis towards disaster.  We need to cap at this amount, to reverse the process, or attempt to slow it down.

Here’s an excellent 6 min. video of 350 dot org’s Berlin, Germany Silent Climate Parade 2013 (different year, but captures the essence)

The impetus of the voices around the world calling attention to this is to put forth to the attendees of the Copenhagen Climate Conference glaring ahead, the need to acknowledge the importance of making a coordinated worldwide effort to reduce the number of particles contaminating the environment to a sustainable level of 350ppm.

This will be the most widespread day of political global action in world history.  4,500 events have been planned in 177 countries.  McKibben mentioned in an interview with Amy Goodman of “Democracy Now”that the people of the United States “are the most addicted, and therefore most in denial” about the issue.

I’ll be attending among others the Berlin, Germany, Silent Climate Parade. Here are pics from 350 dot org Climate movements worldwide. https://www.flickr.com/photos/350org/4046302796
