"Consciousness has.less to do with pure intelligence and more to do with our nature as living and breathing organisms."
"...Brain as prediction engine...."
"When we change our brain's best guess, we change what we consciously perceive."
"We don't just passively perceive the world, we actively generate it."
"When we agree about our hallucinations, we call that reality."

I am listening to the audio right now, this is the first time in ages I've tuned into a Krista Tippett interview even though I know she is really good. The one thing that surprised me was realizing that this interview is not in studio but in front of an audience. What I like about Krista Tippett most is how well she researches her interviewee and then creates a very meaningful conversation with them.

Comments15/06/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 ManjitVery mindfully written by Omad Safi. A great example of reflective thinking and who we are when we put forth our better angel. We are far more complex as human beings than what our best face is but if we can't see that face, then this veers us away from reflective thinking and into the mask of positive thinking. As reflective thinking I welcome the way Omad sees his world noting that this is his world. The world we see, that is our own choice to see, rather than as another mask such as found in personal brand thinking.

Comments22/05/2017 #3 Tricia Mitchell#1 I do like him. @Deb 🐝 Helfrich I had the opportunity during a Q&A at one of his talks to ask him about my dogs (because of his telepathy study with dogs & cats). He'd not come across what I'd experienced, so couldn't offer a perspective (when Burt displayed the physical behaviour of a client after an online session). There's another video floating around my head, of an American lecturer or neuroscientist, predicting collective telepathy.... if I find it, I will share the link.

Comments13/05/2017 #11 Tricia Mitchell#10 Yes, yes, yes @Deb 🐝 Helfrich I get what you're saying about the analytical PS consultant, you creating your own reality through your thoughts and the interconnectedness of all things. I can't remember if it was here or elsewhere there was a discussion about every man and his dog describing their services as "intuitive..." whether referring to printing, consulting or psychic-led services. Great point about helping others to converse about topics that may not have been accessible or possible before. By giving ourselves permission, we also share or extend that permission to others. I love integrating business troubleshooting & strategy with clairvoyance & healing/mindset work.13/05/2017 #10 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#3 I'd say it is more the courageousness index of the readers that is at play. This is the precise area where we are forging new ground on beBee. Part of me is a very competent, analytical, precise payroll software consultant. The other part of me is in awe of the world I get to live in and the ways that I have experienced my thoughts becoming manifest many times in my life. And the ways I can affect other people, even thousands of miles away.
Here, I can be both. These parts can integrate and combine and help open up other people to feel open to conversing around topics that they might have felt weren't conducive to the cubicle worldview.
The power of human conversation is what catalyzes so much of what happens around us.13/05/2017 #8 Tricia Mitchell#6 Oh, twilight zone doesn't sound like much fun. I've had rather surreal happenings, and divinely driven ones. The main thing is that you are comfortable with them. It's when they're troubling that it causes issues. If they're close to your heart, I trust they are nurturing. Have a lovely evening @Chas ✌️ Wyatt13/05/2017 #5 Tricia Mitchell#4 Hi @Chas ✌️ Wyatt thanks for following and engaging with my post. When did you make the switch from coincidences to synchronicity? People used to say "That's spooky" or "You're spooky" and I'd laugh off the timing. I think we all have that psychic ability to know who's calling you before you even pick up (in the days before caller ID). When the coincidences were too frequent to be called coincidences, I looked for some other explanation. I appreciate you acknowledging your heartfelt, personal experiences of synchronicity. I also love your language'ing - we do, indeed, keep matters of the heart close to our chest. It's where we connect with others, and holds those treasures which are our values and desires. I wish you well.13/05/2017 #3 Tricia Mitchell#2 Thank you @Ian Weinberg for engaging with this rambling exploration of mine and for taking the time to read it. I appreciate your contribution and reference to Stephen Schwartz. When I feel courageous enough to share these types of posts there is low engagement - whether that is my intention subconsciously, or being in the process of becoming more skilled at engaging others when writing or a combination, who knows. What I do know is that I'm grateful to you.13/05/2017 #2 Ian WeinbergIndeed Tricia, we are ignorant of the greater dimensions of life and consciousness. But every now and then people experience events which have no valid conventional scientific explanation. However, many of these events have indeed been studied (see Stephan Schwartz) and verified. And for those who are free of limiting beliefs/biases, these events/occurrences serve as a reminder that there is a far greater dynamic that exists, beyond this time-mass-distance dimension that we perceive through our 5 senses. Thanks for sharing. I acknowledge your courage in this regard.

So masterfully written, @Savvy Raj. Because it is a trick, a switch that must be flipped, to turn off the incessant self-obsessed chatter and tune in to the flow of all that surrounds us. But what a marvelous gift it is, when we relax into our supporting roles.

Comments28/04/2017 #58 Tausif MundrawalaWe can aspire to inspire. Wow! I have been postponing reading this wonderful buzz by clicking to it but due to some work I couldn't finish it. Today I made it a point to finish it somehow or the other. You have proved that doctors are like angels for those who needs to undergo treatment on urgent basis. I was totally immersed in each and every word as the entire setting and situation sprang back to life the way it happened. The last paragraph of this buzz was motivational enough. You described very well the kinds of people who needs better care.
I am glad that I fulfilled the promise made to myself and thanks for sharing this fantastic buzz with us, @Ian Weinberg28/04/2017 #55 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsA life changing read in many ways. In terms of people and the need to help others and ourselves. I did cry when I read how you met that 10 year old girl now a women cherishing the life you helped her to continue living. Doctors are in many ways God. A faith that can make or break us. "Aspire to inspire by walking the walk" a fantastic message to take away. Thank you @Ian Weinberg I see that you are a caring human, an outstanding surgeon and hope and pray for more surgeons like you out there. The world needs more doctors with the heart to give than just with the need to take as is the case in most places in the current medical world.
A standing ovation at your smartness and blessed heart. Thank you28/04/2017 #52 Tricia MitchellWow @Ian Weinberg what a beautiful piece you've written here and an amazing conclusion. My own path of auto-immune antibodies and lack of an answer from medics led me on a journey of discovery towards a biopsychosocial model of dis-ease via energy psychology practices (starting with Reiki & Emotional Freedom Techniques, to arrive at META-Health (a scientific framework, that has its foundations in German New Medicine, which details emotions & beliefs specific to organ tissues & the corresponding brain layer the organ tissue relays to) & mBraining coaching - the cardiac, enteric, cephalic, reproductive brains & ANS intelligence). I totally get the significant life event preceding dis-ease you write about that creates the bio-logical conflict. Different paths & expertise, yet the same illuminating conclusion. I believe my clients are my teachers & reflect what I need to learn/heal within me.Your work sounds absolutely fascinating. I mention META-Health as it may interest you. Here's Dr Anton Bader (he can read a brain scan and tell what the biological conflict is, which organ tissue & if it's active or resolved) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5WR6RKrJKg28/04/2017 #51 Lisa 🐝 GallagherI was moved to tears reading this @Ian Weinberg. What a wonderful man and surgeon you are. I can't imagine the times you worked so hard and fate didn't want to cooperate. I'm sure those are the times you remember the most. How enlightening to read the story of the 10 year old who you met much later in life. I think your meeting was meant to be. I love how you ended your story, "And we can't control everything and fix things to conform to our own expectations. But one thing we can always do …. we can aspire to inspire!" I agree and honestly, this is something I've been working on. It comes easy at times and other times depending on what we are going through we need to be self aware. My husband is going through a tough time right now for various reasons. I have been trying hard to inspire him and pamper him because he needs it. I hope it helps. Inspiring story!28/04/2017 #48 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI have to reiterate the awe-inspiring accolades - this is such a well-crafted piece of writing. In each human life there is a time and place for the intricate processes and procedure that contemporary medicine excels in, as well as a time and a place to learn to use our thinking equipment to support our own best healing and life outcomes.
The highly skilled and exhaustively intense work that you perform, @Ian Weinberg, is so tremendously necessary in times of acute trauma, but even with coaching, it is up to the owner of the brain to decide how to regard this episode of their life. As gruelingly hard as those hours of surgery clearly were, your life-saving work is a tiny fraction of someone's life. If they don't cherish their own life and reinforce this belief with their consistent thought processes there is a risk that their body won't be able to fully heal if they cannot learn to live in a calm, relaxed, and grateful parasympathetic state.
The more we open up to just how much influence our thoughts have on the efficient functioning of our immune system, via the ways we stress ourselves with limiting and self-defeating thoughts, the more we can pair up the skills of medical interventions with the appropriate mindset needed to ensure our body can devote all required resources to healing during a crisis.
Bravo!28/04/2017 #47 AnonymousWoah, snarly isn't a common word and I used it in a festering thought in my brain and World yesterday... there is something here for me to learn, yes, and your scientific approach does wonders for ones reflective understanding. "It’s not about being driven to changing other people. It’s about applying those changes to yourself." Inspiring, you are, THANK YOU! *clapping*27/04/2017 #45 Jerry FletcherIan, I am in awe.
I thought, what would a brain surgeon write about. Now I know. I thought, what else intrigues a man poking inside of heads. Now I know. I thought, will there be a connection. Now, I know.
A brain surgeon can write about the troubles of the soul. A brain surgeon can be intrigued with how thoughts and beliefs can physically heal or maim. A brain surgeon can shed light on matters we seldom glimpse and find the words that can make them visible to the rest of us. Thank you.27/04/2017 #41 Aaron 🐝 SkogenWOW! Outstanding post @Ian Weinberg! I spent a bit of my time as a medic. I loved my time spent in that profession as the field of medicine has always intrigued me. I was one who, however, "preferred" a trauma call over a general medical. Preferred is the wrong word really, I hated to see people hurt, but as a Medic, trauma's were somewhat easier to manage for me anyway. Thankfully my regular partner was the opposite, as she preferred the general medical calls.
Anyway, this is a great story. You touch on a great point about recovery and dealing with injury in this piece Ian. I am often amazed at how attitude and our ability to manage emotions can impact our health and well-being. Your spot on, that's up to the individual to choose and not you. I went through an executive leadership coaching session recently with a small cohort and the phrase "Aspire to Inspire" was used by our coaches. The phrase is so applicable, regardless of our "field" of work.
Well done Sir, very well done!

It’s a pretty sad thing to see someone with tremendous potential who is not using what they have been given
Is often used to quash potential and force fit people.
This is why i really like the mirror analogy. If only one could look at oneself rather than use this scale to gauge anyone around them.
Often i have seen people superimpose their own deep desires onto others and see a potential no one else sees.
Personally, i think i have the potential to do anything and everything, it is merely a matter of choice and patience.
I enjoy reading you. Thanks.14/04/2017 #10 Michele WilliamsThank you, Paul: "To really know yourself, you first have to be in touch with your passions and your desires. You must find out:
What unique gifts, talents and skills you have?
What specific life challenges you are facing and what impact they are having on you?
What do you stand for and why?
What motives or values run your life?
Where do you get your meaning and purpose?"13/04/2017 #4 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI feel this to be a very lucid dream, @Paul Kearley🐝, that gets to the heart of why so many people float through life, ungrounded in who they are.
As a contemporary, technological society we are taught in so many ways that who we are is the surface that others judge us by, and what 'they' say is all there is. But, of course, this is simply not the case. It takes some guts to listen to that steady, quiet, and contrarian voice within, but it is so tremendously worth the effort.
If we lived in a world where everyone could just be who they are, so many of the contentious dramas would evaporate because as soon as we celebrate our own essence, we have limitless energy to celebrate all who we come in contact with.
Having done quite a lot of excavation myself this year, I would like to add one, perhaps controversial, step. I found it imperative to find a new support team. It is a sort of crazy conundrum that to know ourselves accurately, we have to select trustworthy mirrors - in the form of coaches, mentors, and caring friends.
Because often why we don't know our own minds are subconscious limits that were created in early childhood, and it can be practically impossible to notice our go-to tendencies without being able to voice our internal biases. These helpful mirrors shouldn't try to give us any answers, but simply shine the light on the dark and twisty path of self-knowing, self-caring, self-loving, and self-creation of the life we are meant to live.
