Laurie Huston and Tom Campbell: Consciousness and Ego

June 2, 2017

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Ego, Growth, Consciousness, Intention and Control. This deep conversation began with an experience I had that Tom and I often discuss around Me versus Other. Learning how to detach ourselves and give space for the other to BE allows us to shift our triggers and BEcome more conscious in our lives. This also allows us an opportunity to detach from our emotions that are only perceived by our story. We also discussed 3 questions from our listeners, 1. on Intention and Control and how they are confusing, especially if we bring Law of Attraction into our intentions. Intention that is from a place of Being instead of end goal is the way we can maintain letting go of our control over our lives and allow what is happening to BE. 2nd question was around crying and ego and whether this is helping us grow. Being authentic is important and although crying is for each person’s ego, it doesn’t hinder our growth unless it moves into suffering. And the 3rd question was around energy and clothes which will continue next month as it brought up a great deal of information around Intention and our tools to assist us in our growing. We discussed how the differences between energy, data and tools we use will assist us in our growing towards love.

Book Review: Love Is Stronger Than Death By Peter Kreeft Ph.D.

LoveStrongerDeath

I read two of Kreeft’s book in the past and found his writing to follow a very direct non-nonsense approach, regardless of topic.   That being the case, thought it prudent to avail myself of more of his work, given the quality and insights.

Compared to some of Kreeft’s other books which I recently began reading, this book didn’t’ sound as alluring.  However, knowing that Kreeft shovels pearls of wisdom by the truckload in his books, it seemed prudent to proceed open-mindedly – as one always should – into this new book.

Love Is Stronger Than Death by philosopher Peter Kreeft Ph.D. is an in-depth gander into love, death, life through five lenses: death as an enemy, death as a stranger, death as a friend, death as a mother, death as a lover.  Curious chapter titles no doubt, and yet, each offer more than ample insights to ruminate upon.

Examining this curious conundrum, Kreeft takes a very methodical and deft approach into attempting to take the taboo out of death.  Following many thought-provoking considerations, Kreefts undoubtedly leaves the reader not only with a fresh new understanding of death, but a new reassuring point of view of life.

The profound ruminations that Kreeft embarks in are quite meaningful, as they tend to add color to the strands of life that are often fraught with greys and blacks.  For instance:

“On the one hand, death is loss of self; on the other, loss of death is loss of meaning, of identity, of self.  On the one hand, death takes is loss of meaning, of identity, of self.  On the one hand, death takes from me my self, and immortality would give me my self snatched from the jaws of death of nothingness.  On the other hand, death gives me my self, as we have discovered in this chapter, and the “Immortality pill” would snatch it from me.  Death both unmakes me and makes me.”[1]

Passages as such leave the reader much to ponder upon.

Employing a multi-pronged approach, Kreeft deftly uses logic, analogies, biblical lessons, as well as philosophy to strip away much of the mystery that has confounded humanity since time immemorial.

In fact, Kreeft at one point speaks honestly about the subject:

“My concocting and writing this book about death has sharpened my appreciation of life also – beyond all my expectations.  The thought of death has made my life exactly the opposite of  “morbid.”  But why passively read about this experience in other people?  “Look thy last on all things lovely” now.  You have something infinitely better to do than to continue reading this book.  Meet your friend.  Lay the book down for ten minutes and ask yourself what you would think, feel, say, and do if you knew this was the last ten minutes of your life.  And then do it.  For the very good reason that it might be the last ten minutes of your life, and for the equally good reason that some ten minutes certainly will be your last.”[2]

Whether one agrees with his religious views or not, how can someone not appreciate a mind, and individual, with such an honest and caring point of view?

Throughout his books, seeing Kreeft employ logic and philosophy in a sound manner has made me appreciate the value of keen mental faculties that much more.  That said, Love Is Stronger Than Death has made me appreciate life even more so.  Not because I did not appreciate life, because I did, especially having had many bouts with serious disease and hospitalizations.  The issue is that I myself, as others, often find myself busy with life’s intricacies and would forget to slow down and smell the roses so to speak  Not just slow down, but  really slow down, in every second, in every breathe – really take the totality of life in.  This insight has allowed me to begin living life to an extent previously undone.

Not only does this last passage by Kreeft make me ponder about the roads of life we all take, but it also sheds light into the darkest realm of the individual psyche – the end of the road as individuals.  And the intriguing possibility is that this endroad – or is it beginning? – is not paved in darkness, but in light.  That is just my take on it, yours may vary, and rightly so.

Either way, after reading this book, one can’t help but subsume Kreeft’s ideas into your mind but also ponder them at length, share them, and perhaps even grow from them.  This not only removes the scaffolding to the fear surrounding death, but it leaves one prepared to tackle life with a newfound sense of meaning.  And that, my friends, makes life that much sweeter, and in fact, more lively.

We are fortunate. We are living in a time when our basic understanding of reality and of who and what we are is about to make a dramatic and unprecedented change.

Quantum physicist, Anton Zeilinger noted that: “we’ve had quantum physics around now for nearly 100 years and we are still working at the foundations. And that tells me that when we find it, it will be an absolute revelation. It will be something different from what we have been thinking.” *

That absolute revelation is here and it is big. It is logical, experimentally verifiable, and fully relevant to our everyday life.

In this historic lecture series, Tom Campbell presents his long-awaited variations of the double-slit experiment and calls on the next generation of scientific pioneers to help lead us into a new era of understanding.

“For the first time in history, all the pieces of the puzzle are in place for a major paradigm shift.”

Only Love Can Defeat the New World Order

Whatever side of whatever political divide you are on, these times will pass. The question is what will emerge on the other side. Do we want a world of hatred and division where people are divided and ruled by psychopaths and warmongers, or a world where love brings us together to create the world we want to live in? It’s not the Powers-That-Shouldn’t-Be’s choice to make; it’s ours. So what world do you want to live in?

[Book Review] You Are The Awakening By Zen Gardner

There are many people in the alternative media/research community that are putting out good information, without a doubt.  Then, there is an even narrower set of individuals putting out even better, more thought provoking, yet discerning information.  Zen Gardner is part of the latter.

For years, Zen Gardner has made it a mission of writing information in a manner that’s truthful, sobering, and yet, empowering.  What makes his work so great is that he distills everything down in a narrow approach that not only helps individuals see the incoming tyrannical government onslaught for what it is, but he does so in a manner that does not instill fear, but responsibility rather.

In You Are The Awakening, Zen Gardner showcases many of his best essays in an easy to read format that helps shed light on many pressing issues individuals/society faces.

Zen’s inspiring spirit flows through his writings, and his work has helped inspire many individuals to live a more authentic, well rounded and purposeful life.

Throughout the book, issue after issue is explored, and details into how our reality is being manipulated are gazed into in a salient fashion.  Some of these issues included mainstream media, propaganda, politics, divide and conquer, solutions, consciousness, and much much more.

The author isn’t afraid to call it how he sees it, which is always greatly appreciated, but he also helps individuals not panic.  Instead, Zen is all about rousing action through self awareness and deep ruminations.

Throughout this book the reader gets a feel of a genuine commitment to making individuals stronger, and making the world a better place.  And that’s certainly not something we witness every day.

To that effect, Zen often brings issues down to a local, community, and individual level, which is where the rubber meets the road.  That’s where we each individually have the most power, and that’s where we can see an individual-driven tsunami of change growing, and how it will continue to grow over time with every positive action we take.

If you’ve read Zen’s work, you will appreciate this book greatly.  And if you haven’t, this is an excellent starting point to help yourself gaze through the lens of an individual that has made it his life mission to help empower others to reach their inherent maximum innermost potential.

What’s not to love about that?
