There's only one meadow's way to go

Every demigod at Camp Half-Blood (and many Asperkids) is dyslexic and has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) because they are hardwired for another time and place. As loud as her little self could yell, as tall as her little body could stand, my daughter was saying that yes, she knew …

Don't help me, find someone else

The busy Ferrari team were willing to meet with the GOSH doctors in the first place. Aristotle was privileged to study at Plato's Academy, but some kid on the other side of the world was probably just as promising as young Aristotle and never got the mentorship. How can building …

Last night I was dreaming and I got your plan

As this study demonstrated, that's exactly what the subconscious can do. The subconscious brain has the ability to change the top-down processing that makes sense of sensory data coming in from the bottom up. If you can change top-down processing, then it's more than just a minor reframe in the …

Set the page and the stage for the scene

There was no artificial ventilation or tube feeding then. If you had motor neurone disease, when you could not swallow you starved, and when you developed aspiration pneumonia you did not receive antibiotics. A patient would be helped on their way with a touch of morphine, no doubt. My awareness …

When I walk, I walk with you

A closer scrutiny of the actual facts makes it far more probable that the brain is an organ for selecting and transmitting consciousness rather than for generating it. The list of similar quotations could go on and on. In fact, in 2014 a group of more than 200 scientists and …

It's just an hour on the wings of a dove

When frightened, one's legs may shake or he may urinate frequently. Some may even wet their pants. All these conditions have to do with kidney function. In order to maintain our health, we must maintain a peaceful state of mind. I chose the term subconscious because the tools in this …

Lay and laugh in the sun

I need your perspective on what you consider I am really good at. I'd really appreciate if you could provide me with honest feedback and give me a list of the strengths you think I have. Please don't be afraid to tell me anything that comes to mind. Thanks so …

Sit by the fire and dry out our wet clothes

I went on a cruelty-free diet the way people go on carb-free diets. It works, even with one cheat day. In the next articles I will briskly touch on other major obstacles to living a happy, productive life in this particular day and age--and counter each with some plus-size solutions …

The sky is crying and it's time to go home

Your self-belief and conviction are strong but there's just something -- you don't know what -- that's missing. If this is the case, you may find you place an X' in the bottom right-hand quadrant. <a href='https://images.google.com.cu/url?q=https://crmag.co.uk'>Our</a> ultimate aim …

This inspiration's got to be on the flow

And if a relationship is established, we may get way too attached; The new person may become a special interest - something on which to happily hyperfocus, though perhaps with preconceived plans for get-togethers, playdates, or relationship trajectories that don't accurately include the other party's perspective. Then, unable to manage the …

To the country I'm going

I know this is true because I've been there myself. I've worn dirty clothes for days because I can't bear to make a dent in a month's worth of laundry. I've shoved piles of unwanted articles, shoes and mismatched bikinis under the bed and shamefully snuck under the duvet at …

I can hear the fireworks

Quantum physics teaches us that the universe doesn't work in a way that aligns with our everyday experience. It teaches that there are seemingly invisible connections between objects that are physically distant. It teaches that the mere act of observing can affect physical reality. These ideas led Nobel Prize-winning physicist …

It's not a matter of when push comes to shove

Now my confusion opened up into curiosity. I tried kinesthetic input, having the kids play with clay and move around. For some children, this produced more beta waves; What I hadn't realized until that point was: 1) Input from the outside caused the children's brains to shift from focused attention …

Laughing all the way

When the subconscious is working, slow brain waves are present. They are different than the fast brain waves of the conscious brain that are there when you're working on a spreadsheet. In many ways, the highly developed, analytical channels of the conscious brain can be seen as both a blessing …

The silence round the cascades

It was like hearing spirit knock on a door that would eventually open to time and space. Miracle fails to adequately describe the transformation of spirit into flesh. And ever since, your presence and growth has ushered before us a procession of magical moments. Truly, if human beings only knew …

Through the fields of streams and meadows

The quintessence of bollocks. All the surgeons I know share poky offices in Portakabins. I often feel those writing medical dramas could barely tell the difference between a hospital and an eel-and-pie shop. Real-life medical ethics is far less dramatic and, sadly, lacks even the merest hint of sexual frisson …

ook at the flowers and the green grass so tall

Players divide into teams and begin with a small object, like a toothpick, then disperse and knock on neighborhood doors, one house after another. At each answered door, the players introduce themselves with something on the order of, We're playing a game called Bigger or Better. Do you have something …

Keep my both feet on the ground

The sooner you get old, the better. If you aren't getting happier as you're getting older, you're doing it wrong. Either that, or you had the greatest childhood ever--which is sad, in a way. So, now, as an old guy, I am equipped and able to write a self-help article …

Men with insight, men in granite

To me, this makes complete sense. Without a specific purpose, it is impossible to set the right priorities and focus on what matters. Your purpose is what dictates your priorities. And it is by focusing on your priorities that you reach optimal productivity. When we disconnect learning from our bodies …

Put it in a big brown bag for me

Sail right around the seven oceans

We should also fear no result, because when we suffer, it means that suffering will soon be over. When we enjoy happiness, it means our happiness is reduced overall. Therefore, we must realize that being ill is a threshold. We are agonized now only because we are trying to cross …

When that evening sun goes down

Crucially, melatonin does not induce sleep in itself - rather it's a regulator for your biological clock, making sure you sleep during darkness and wake with the light. The biological clock needs to synchronize with day and night. Anything that helps it get in step is called a zeitgeber and the …

You can't keep us 'cause our eyes can see

But you need to remember that we all lose our sh*t at times, and some of us just hide it better than others. As my grandma Lottie always used to say, The grass isn't greener on the other side; <a href='http://r.czin.eu/?u=http://crmag.co …

You can't stop us on the road to freedom

For many Orthodox Jewish people, Passover is a time to spruce the whole house up, too. The religious imperative to get every bit of chametz (leavened food) out of the house and anything it might have touched thoroughly cleaned, is now also for many a chance to really have a …

All I gotta say is we're starting a new life

In the end she went to one of our few remaining continuing-care beds. She died one week later, having spent over four months on our acute stroke ward. I felt wretched, as did many of the nursing staff, speech therapists, physiotherapists and others who had devoted so much time to …

I am your guiding light

We live in a world where negativity, trauma, and chronic pain prevent people from remembering their inherent greatness. Too many people are trapped in the negative feedback loops of pain, depression, and self-doubt. These loops prevent them from offering their unique gifts and love to the world. Hormones and neurotransmitters …

Just like a ship out in the night

I survived layoffs, which simply meant that I had to take on even more work. So I was in a distressed industry, working with distressed clients, at an under-resourced investment bank. Like most investment bankers during that period, I worked around the clock, pulling all-nighters, and spending many, many consecutive …

Returning for a light

Heaven is everywhere, always, at once. Hell is not knowing it. Find the good in every circumstance. It's always there. I am referring to meditation as a destination whereby one discovers a feeling of bliss and harmony. Disciple - My master, what on earth is yoga? This is a complex question …
