Yet, we need to disconnect and unplug from technology from time to time and simply revel in silence; our own thoughts, sans of ego. Every once in a while we need to go find nature and not a computer screen.
1. Why is depression and loneliness on the rise despite so many ways for people to stay connected?
There are probably as many answers to this question as the variables that create our environments. One factor is that the world is becoming increasingly complex with the social situations we find ourselves in; our smart phones, internet, financial struggles can isolate us from our true-self. Couple that with stress, anxiety and many of us find that the same world that is becoming easier to navigate with technology and non-personal communication is the same world that causes us suffering; many times unknowingly. This new social media world is creating generations of youth lacking basic social skills – everything is accomplished through email and text and as social creatures in need of personal attention it makes one wonder what the psychological toll is on those most vulnerable. We live in this world of controlled chaos. There is this buzz of industry and technology that remains incessant; never ending… Yet, we need to disconnect and unplug from technology from time to time and simply revel in silence; our own thoughts, sans of ego. Every once in a while we need to go find nature and not a computer screen.
2. What techniques work best for mental healing?
Meditation and mindfulness are one of the best techniques for mental healing. Our minds are awash with errant thoughts and the trails they follow. Most of our thoughts are rooted in the past and future; fear and fantasy – all rooted to the ego and false-self. Yet during meditation, we are able to slow these thoughts and label them as just that… thoughts; nothing more and nothing less. Meditation allows us to focus our energy and concentration on the sublime space between those thoughts. Where does a thought arise within the mind? Where do thoughts go? …and what about the gap between thoughts? There within those gaps is silence. It is from this meditative silence that space arises. From that space is born clarity and awareness of our True Nature; our inner voice, speaking wisdom that will always lead us to illumination.
3. Your views on people achieving mind-body balance?
There is a revolution happening before our eyes. It has been an ongoing awakening: Buddha, Aristotle, Plato, Rumi and more contemporary teachers like the Dalai Lama, Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra. Also, people like you and me! We are awakening to our True-Self and not the ego that tends to define our social and spiritual world. These leaders are teaching us to reach for love, wisdom and compassion and in turn we will evolve socially and spiritually. The ultimate goal is self-discovery and less suffering.
4. Tell us a little about the evolution in the field of mental
As proven in the laboratory, just the act of observing elementary particles at the microscopic level changes their characteristics simply through examination. Through the act of observing matter in its smallest form we find that our own energy, conscious thoughts and possibly even our DNA cellular structure interact with matter within our surroundings and beyond our surroundings. The connections could be infinite! Yes, our conscious energy is shifting and changing the fabric of the Universe before our eyes. This literally means that through our own actions and thoughts we are the forefront of creation. At the sub-atomic level our energy interacts with our environment, changing it for the better or for the worst. We can no longer consider ourselves and our lives as simply a blink of an eye in the history of time; or an atheistic anomaly. Science proves we are more than that… We also can no longer consider ourselves under the omnipresent rule of a God that controls our fate and destiny. Instead, we are at the forefront of creation; we are the creators; humans themselves wielding the power of God through our own actions and reactions. That is evolution!
