LATEST CONVERSATIONS: True Freedom

Everything is separated and connected at the same time. The reality we live in is simultaneously divided, broken into small pieces and completely immersed.

It depends on you – how you see the World and live you life.

To be more precise it depends on your preferred attention style. When your attention is narrow the reality seems to be filled with separated objects. Everything has its borders in time and space. You focus on one object (problem, issue, idea, person, detail, etc…) after another trying to be precise and striving for perfection. When you let your attention diffuse, all objects – including you – merge with space around them and everything becomes one. It is the easiest way to relax – immerse with the world around you and discover that everything is already connected and gently vibrates in ideal harmony.

Now, a few examples.

The wave in the ocean seems to be separated from other waves if you narrow your attention and focus on it. However, if you diffuse (widen, broaden) your attention – you would see that all waves belong to the same bigger object — the ocean and they have not been separated from it even for a moment. If you diffuse your attention a bit more you would see that the ocean could not exist without the space above it. You can say that waves are separated from one another and the ocean is separated from the space above it. And it is clearly true but only if you are in the narrow attention style. When you became diffused it all becomes one.

Every tree in the forest is separated from other trees. However if you diffuse you attention you would see that all trees are connected and they all together form the forest. You can diffuse your attention a bit more and notice space between trees and around the forest. Trees could not exist without space between them. Trees and a space are part of the same thing. You can diffuse even more and become aware of space inside trees and feel oneness.

Everyone is different. We sense these differences the moment we meet a new person. However, if you diffuse your attention you would see that we all belong to the same group of living species built of a matter from the planet Earth. The matter flows through us and we are connected through this flow. If you diffuse even more you would see that space between us (and above us) is an integral part of reality we live in. The Earth (and we as a part of it) and the Universe around it is the same thing.

See this video which beautifully backs it up – https://vimeo.com/55073825 (particularly what Frank White says from 7min 10sec).

You are free to choose how to attend your reality and it can never be taken away from you.

I enjoy helping people and making the Universe a happier place. Fortunately, I work as a family doctor and this is a part of my job description 🙂 For many years I had some questions at the back of my mind like what is happiness, what is love, who we are, where we go after death, where this all suffering is coming from… I know many people would not be bothered with it but somehow I was. I have been a regular meditator since I was a teenager (mostly ZEN tradition) and I was searching for answers in my head and in my heart. My turning point was reading a book The Open Focus Brain by Dr Lester Fehmi. He runs a neurofeedback clinic for attention disorders at Princeton, New Jersey, US. I enrolled an Open Focus workshop and I became a true enthusiast of Dr Fehmi's approach. I love it because it beautifully connects a western scientific way of thinking with far east approach to reality. It also gives a very simple, practical solutions to a physical pan, anxiety, insomnia, creativity etc. I would like to make Open Focus a lot more recognizable because it is worth it!
