The video is rather long, but there was a LOT of information packed into it that talks about the actual nature of our cells, our bodies in relation to the universe; backed by science. It talks about the significant discoveries on how grounding ourselves is very necessary, on a physical level, as it affects our energetic dynamics. Enjoy the video - the scientist tendencies in me really did!
I've had my share of friends over the years, and changed them very frequently as I journeyed through life. I reached a stopping point of moving between friends when I went to college and met up with my batch of friends that with an exception of constantly rotating through a few of them as they moved away; remained constant. I thought that this may be the friends you keep in adulthood.
Leaving California changed that pretty quick. Sometimes I had all those thoughts the article mentions as I rotated through friends, some came into my life, some left just as quickly as they came, some have stuck around or I stuck around with, but as I moved through my pilgrimage, the friendships became more distant. Sometimes I am saddened by this, but know that it is impractical and hard to try to talk to them every day, much less every week!
There are a couple of friends I hurt, and those can be pretty intense because those couple of friends were pretty close. I don't always understand or get the big picture on why this sort of things happen; or even better yet, why I have not reached out to them and simply reconnect. I also discovered that I only have a limited "bandwidth" for keeping in touch and supporting friends at a close and intimate level. The friends I make, and choose to become close with can be many; and it is rather hard to maintain all of them.
So goes the cycling through friends. Sometimes I think my guards kick in and I inadvertently back away from them. What experiences have you witnessed in regards with friends who come and go? Do you have any regrets with any of your friends? How does this article make you feel about the subject altogether?
A thought provoking article about a person's return to working the 9to5 after 9 months of backpacking on no income. I remember realizing many of the same things the article speaks of - just how much your expenses go down and how much more frugal you become when the income goes down, and the hours worked is very little to nothing. I really did see that much of what I was spending on was unnecessary, and yet my enjoyment of life increased exponentially. Combine this with all that is going on in our working industries - consumerism; blind quests to increase profits at the expense of health, people, environment; the various political maneuverings towards special interests; the "odd partnerships and relationships" between corporate entities and various governments; the overreliance on the logical; rational; and intellectual systems of "flow"; and our own tendencies to either numb or cut out our emotions and feeling. What we have is a total co-creation of the world we live in today. There is much more to say, but I have already gotten outside the scope of the below article; and it would take a lot more than what seems right for a light inspirational post. Either way, please enjoy and let me know what you think about the lifestyle of 9to5 and how you would like to change it?
Regardless of the logical rationalization, and perhaps scientific explanations, this is such a heartwarming video of a cat nursing and raising ducklings!
This made my day...
