The Mind of God, the Brain of Man, the Heart of the Shaman

The mind of God created the brain of man—and that’s when the trouble started. We neglected to switch on the brain for bliss and harmony. Instead, we began to pollute the earth, poison our bodies, and clash with our neighbors.

Buddhism & the 12 Steps

Omega Institute A Closer Look at Constellations by Bert Hellinger
An Interview With Bert Hellinger
Martin: First, a question concerning the expression coined by you, “the orders of love.” What does this mean? Bert: Order is that according to which something develops. A tree for instance develops according to an order. Otherwise it will not be a tree any longer. And yet every tree is different. Order isn’t something static. It is a living principle. Love, of course, means here the relationship between humans. It also succeeds according to certain orders. When we know about these orders, our relationships succeed better. More
Omega Institute The Enigma of Consciousness by Eben Alexander
All the objects in the physical universe are made up of atoms. Atoms, in turn, are made up of protons, electrons, and neutrons. These, in turn, are (as physicists discovered in the early years of the twentieth century) all particles. And particles are made up of…Well, quite frankly, physicists don’t really know. But one thing we do know about particles is that each one is connected to every other one in the universe. They are all, at the deepest level, interconnected. More
As Jupiter and the Sun entered Leo in late July (their conjunction was exact on Thursday, July 24), one event after the next has offered vivid and painful confirmation of a world in crisis. On the personal level, field reports are coming in with a diversity of responses to the current astrology, though I'm hearing stories in the "everything all at once" genre. More

Omega Institute Can Contemplative Practice Teach Us to Think Better by Daniel P. Barbezat and Mirabai Bush
One of the claims of higher education, and particularly of liberal arts colleges, is that we teach students how to think. What does this actually mean? Surely our students can think, so in what sense do they need to be taught to think? Maybe it means that we aid them in developing their analytical problem-solving skills and their ability to integrate different aspects of situations creatively. Certainly one of the goals of contemplative exercises is to develop these skills. More
Omega Institute Compassion in Action by Ram Dass
Compassion in action is paradoxical and mysterious. It is absolute, yet continually changing. It accepts that everything is happening exactly as it should, and it works with a full-hearted commitment to change. More
Omega Institute 7 Billion Minds or One by Larry Dossey
"I felt there was no separation between anything. I felt as if I were united with everything, and it was wonderful!" This recent report from a reader is a universal experience of people who are concerned with psychological and spiritual growth. This sense of connectedness is not fantasy, but is being affirmed by recent advances in consciousness research. More
Omega Institute Why Giving Makes Us Feel Good
If you ask most people why they give money to charity or volunteer their time, the answer is probably because they want to make a difference in their community or in the world. But research is finding that our brains' pleasure circuits become activated when we give—meaning that besides doing good, donating our money or time actually makes us feel good. More
Omega Institute The Spiritual Mystery That We Are by Adyashanti
Whoever Jesus may or may not have been historically, he symbolizes the spiritual mystery of each one of us. We are all divine being manifesting as human being. Jesus represents that radiance of divine being, that felt sense of eternity within us all. When we look back over the arc of our lives, from the time we were born to the present moment, each of us can touch upon that intuition that there’s something about us that is unchanged. Throughout all of the ups and downs and changes of life, something is now as it ever was. More
Mindfulness does not belong to Christianity, Buddhism, or Taoism, just as the breath we inhale and exhale does not belong to any one of us. Everywhere human beings have lived, we have needed to cultivate attention; whether it was for hunting, fashioning tools or clothes, or intellectual pursuits. We have always needed compassion to live in harmony and enjoy our lives. Humans from every culture have developed wisdom to ask the big questions of life. These universal practices have been cultivated throughout millennia—or, we may say, they have cultivated us. More
