Another Teen Shot in FL (Jodan Davis)

Another life has been senselessly taken far too early.  Michael Dunn has been charged with 2nd degree murder, for the shooting and killing of teen Jordan Davis, after an argument over loud music at a gas station.  Read the full story here :http://news.yahoo.com/video/man-charged-killing-teen-over-234016693.html

As these same stories continue to play out in the media, it’s almost becoming what’s to be expected; including the backlash.  I’ve already read and heard the racial tension in this story beginning to build.  The sad part is that this type of behavior will continue to manifest in this manner until we name the true culprit… lack of emotional control.  Color matters as much as the day that this occurred on.  What do you think Mr. Dunn is thinking now?  Probably that the loud music wasn’t that serious after all.  What about the families?  All because of a moment of emotional expression that could only be said loud enough with a gunshot…or nine!

I’ll say again that many of us could find ourselves in situations where we act before thinking and end up in less than desired situations.  When we respond to provocation around us, we become susceptible to whatever that energy brings to the table; now you’re in react – react mode.  It’s all goes down hill from there.

I think what’s worse is the incline in the devaluation of life.  I think the more people who inhabit the earth, the less important life actually becomes.  So, many wars, murders, rape that you almost become numb to it.  What’s going on these days?

Is vigilantism the way of the future.  Will we become destitute hermits confined by our own ways or belief systems?  This is not the future I’d like to see for my descendants.  Just as the Egyptians, the Romans, Greeks have their place in history, one day people will write about our place on the timeline…what will be our story?

The Speed of Life


Ever notice the difference between driving and riding in a car.  When you’re driving, you anticipate the moving and the swaying of the car as you bob and weave through traffic.  You know  when you’re going to brake or accelerate before taking the action therefore you’re ready mentally and physically when it happens.  However, when you’re the passenger, you’re at the mercy of the driver.  Your entire body reacts to their every move and you have no control over what happens next.  It’s not (all the time) really that the person can’t drive, it’s mostly that you’re not expecting what the next action so you can’t prepare for it.  I’ll come back to this in a moment.

In March of this year, sky watchers caught a fleeting glimpse of a star exploding, 33 million light years away.  Read the article here: http://www.space.com/15040-photos-supernova-m95-skywatchers.html

Okay so, what they’re saying is that, this event occurred 33 million years ago but we’re just seeing this year.  This really captured my attention and thoughts for some time now due to the implications of this phenomenon.  This would mean that if there were people in that galaxy and they could see us on Earth, they would be seeing us the way we’d be in 33 million years from now.   This just blows my mind continually.  This would also mean that right now, to them, our current place in time has already passed… 33 million years ago.  Hold on, because it gets weirder;  if you could see 33 million years in the opposite direction, we haven’t even happened yet and we won’t for another 33 million years. 

Time then, is based on our perception and perception is a result of our awareness. So basically, time is the result of our awareness.

Back to the driver and the passenger.  The driver sees things before they happen and therefore is prepared for them when they happen;  the passenger reacts to what has happened.

The term think ahead is not a misnomer.  Thinking ahead simply means to know where you’re going ahead of time, take the correct path to get there and prepare yourself for the outcome.  A thought travels at the speed of light or faster…(from the little that I know on the subject).  When traveling at the speed of light everything around you slows way down.  You’d then have to wait for everything to catch up with you…even time or at least the accepted perception of it. This is the speed of life.

We actually have a choice of the speed we’d like to go.  Are we passengers in life or drivers?  Do we create our lives or respond to them?  If we treated every minute like an hour, we could experience our own lives.  I do believe time travel is possible, we just have to understand the vehicle that we already have to get through it.

Logically Emotional


One doesn’t have to become a nueroscientist to understand that there are two sides of the brain and we tend to lean more to one side than the other.  What we typically fail to realize however, is how important learning the other side really is.  Take a look at the chart below:

Which side best describes you most of the time?  Are you equally represented on both sides?  Which characteristics are presented that you don’t have but would like to?  Let’s take a look at how the our suggestibility and sexuality are represented in this chart.  Suggestibility being how we learn and Sexuality being how we act.

The Right brain or Physical behavior typically lives life from the present into the future whereas the Left brain lives from the future back to the present.  Meaning that the physical lives more for the moment and whatever happens, happens (feelings).  The Emotional makes present decisions based on what they perceive the future results will  be (analytical).  We call this the devil and the angel on our shoulder, one side is saying “Do it! Do it!”  While the other side is saying, ” think….about…ittttt.”  This means that we all have both sides, we simply suppress the subdominant side.  When we meet someone who is our opposite, we’re subconsciously aware of and a lot of times attracted to this behavior; only to become an enemy of it later.

Our opposites represent the physical manifestation of the other side of our brains.  This is what causes most of the troubles in relationships as it relates to communicating; which side is more dominant?  If one person feels that they’re not getting their fair amount of representation, they’ll begin to become more exaggerated in their behavior.  The emotional will become more distant and the physical will become more excited.  Bom …Bom…Bommm…and the fighting begins.

The riddle here is for each side to learn the other for your own development.  There are four parts to the equation, physical/emotional suggestible – physical/emotional sexual.  This means that there are two ways that we see and do things (physical or sexuality) and two ways that we hear and interpret things (emotional or suggestibility).  Ironically, we have two eyes, two ears, two sides to the testicles and the ovaries…all physical manifestations.  I’m beginning to think that there’s something behind this opposites thing.

I guess it all comes back down to learning who and what you are, the good and the bad if you want to call it that. Once we obtain that balance within ourselves, it becomes easier to recognize and or build it in someone else.  Alternating current or direct current mean nothing seperately, it’s not until they come together in a balanced equation do they make electricity or give power.

Our successes or failures come from the suggestions that have been placed in front of us along the way and how we’ve responded to them.  If you look closely at the brain it kind of looks like a maze;  it’s like we spend the majority of our lives trying to find a way out of it never realizing that the only way out is through.

Is it Lust or Love?


                                                                 Lust is a passionate or overmastering desire or craving….(Physically)

 

                                                   Love is an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment… (Emotionally)
