    #3 Dear David, TCM is extremely interesting, I agree 100 %. It´s amazing how much difference acupuncture or even acupressure can make. Ayurveda, an Indian tradition, is not less fascinating. Beside that they recommend to get up early (ewh!) I apply a good portion of ayurvedic wisdom.

    What did you pay for your back treatment? Couple of hundred bucks? I did not know that insurers added TCM to their catalogue. Good for the people and good for cost reduction. Thanks for the tip!

    You are wonder full!!!! The here and now is magical and maybe meditation can be personal. Sun, music, and walking has helped me be in 'the trance'... time literally ceased for me 2 yearsish ago. I noticed eventually that I barely notice it passing at all any more. And funny thing, granted from my experiences only, is I've also noticed that this "There is just not as much money in the game." is not necessarily true.... maybe it depends on which game you're playing? In the game of Life, not thinking about money has made me more... that's an energy conversation though, maybe. And yes on pathways. After pulling myself out of the gutter and getting my financial ducks and many other corporeal successes that shocked me once in a row, I was sad. I talked to my mentor about it, she noted I was reforming my neural pathways from the long term practice of failing. That floored me. I'm still working on it. Thanks to you and many others I'm getting there! Imperfect moment by moment.... "stay gold ponyboy".... ;-) Thanks love!

    Excellent buzz, as usual, @Aurorasa Sima. You present many good suggestions that gel with the theory of "mind over matter." Chinese medicine says a lot about deep breathing and the other techniques you mentioned. Let's remember that American medicine has only been around for 240 years, whereas Chinese medicine has been around for thousands of years. To wit, the phrase, "Ancient Chinese secret." I learned more about all this when I did acupuncture a few years ago with a practitioner from Shanghi who helped relieve pain due to lower back injury.
    Yes, it works and is now covered by some big health insurance plans, like Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Finally, for those interested, I recommend the book, "Between Heaven and Earth: A Guide to Chinese Medicine." Perhaps @Dean Owen might have something to say about this per his travels in China.

    Hi Daniel. What a wonderful post. Indeed all of life is actually a paradox, I'd say.
    We run until we tire; then we must rest.
    Black; white. Hot; cold. Yin; Yang!

    We need to gain experience, knowledge and gain wisdom and grow; then we need to share it. Tony Robbins encapsulates the main paradoxes in his 6 Human Needs. Have you heard of them? I plan on doing a post about it.

    Tony also is all about the power within. Just see his bestseller book, Awaken the Giant Within!

    Ah, I could go on and on....

    There are books that I will read because they offer perspective but at their essence they are built on some ego, some lie, some form deception and dishonesty and such a book would be Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich. The perspective that emerges from reading that book is how we get sold and how much we will elevate the author that sold us. In Krishnamurti, he is the complete opposite of Napoleon Hill and when I try to get to the essence of Krishnamurti, where he makes it clear over and over and over that it is my own responsibility to know the nature of my own thoughts, it becomes the most challenging thing I have ever encountered and I am actually richer for encountering it - so take that Napoleon Hill and shove it up your secret. There is no secret to Krishnamurti, how can truth be a secret when it is our own face - not something we face - we are that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8V1QFpLOMM

    Great post Dr. @Alan Geller! I'm amazed by the level of intellectuality you have and the care you got for humanity. Wonderful thoughts indeed. Positivity is the solution. Be positive, keep your brain road plain, without any bumps. The things will smooth down. A rough terrain of brain brings roughness in life, and this roughness eats the humanity. Thank you my dear and sorry I missed so much of your excellent work in between.

    The first quote brings to mind that wonderful line 'The dude abides', from the Cohen's classic The Big Lebowski. For me, abiding is observation without adding any 'you' to the situation and you're right, it's a great question - can we observe without an analysing? Are the words used to describe the mountain even to clumsy to compare to the experience? A great post Alan, thanks for sharing this food for thought.

    I have never collected shells, but a long time ago when the kids were younger, we took them down to Clearwater, Florida. The four oldest kids did their own thing but the four youngest kids were fascinated by the shells they found on the white sandy beach. It was on a boat ride from where I personally was transfixed at trying to spot where a dolphin would leap from the water, that the kids saw a little white boy with a collection of much larger shells. The little boy did something remarkable, he took his four most nicest shells and handed them to each one of younger kids. What was remarkable was that he at a very small age had the impulse to give rather than receive. At an age where kids are protective with their things, this pint sized kid became larger than life - I could see that one day when that kid grows up, their is the making of a future leader. Meaning is important, but wisdom is nurtured from within and that kid did not just pass a trivial marshmallow test http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/09/what-the-marshmallow-test-really-teaches-about-self-control/380673/, he was an inspiration for all who witnessed his heart and the joy he had in giving. I can only imagine the lengths that little kid went to find shell pieces like the one's he found.

    I started my journey in meditation precisely 28 years ago as well ;) and I use to say it's not only stay sitting down on my own, on the top of a mount surrounded by little and happy birds. Meditation, for me, is being aware in the traffic jam, paying attention to my breath, feeling like being at home wherever I am, in whatever situation specially in the most difficult for my human mind. I like to call it "the immensity of the cell joyfulness".
