Here’s a gripping video of a Harvard grad, Daniel Goleman, PhD, discussing this study briefly and clearly…
Here’s a too-brief video leading us in loving kindness meditation. Try it if you like. There are many similar videos on YouTube. I really appreciate this one because of the woman’s non-assuming voice and her approach of filling up with gamma waves (apparently the brainwave correlate of love) before sending it out (probably through the non-local field of zero-point energy) to others…
If you’re tired of election-season propaganda (on both sides) filling your heart with resentment for the “evil, misguided morons” on the other side of the political aisle with all their transparent lies (no matter which side you’re on, trust me!), then I think it’s time to make an effort to escape the emotional manipulation of the DC lawyers and other nice career folk who, as best I can tell, run the big picture items via some sort of unelected shadow government.
The world would be a better place with fewer wars, less pollution, less covert manipulation, less poverty, less starvation, less crime, more honesty, more happiness and more positive energy if you and I spent daily time in loving kindness meditation, becoming world-class athletes in gamma brainwave production.
I believe that almost everything desperately needs more balance in our culture. Plus the cells of my body (except the RBCs) contain the politically incorrect and inherently inferior Y chromosome (I’m joking), so I get it that somehow we need a balance between loving kindness and the other thing, perhaps the ability to stand against what we believe is destructive (evil). And I understand how meditation in general, and loving kindness meditation in particular, can seem too touchy-feely to people of my generation (Boomers), especially the men, I think.
So if you’re just not into meditation, I suggest this.
- Put on a video of unusual animal friendships. Try this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NPOD92a78I.
- Mute the sound.
- Slow your breathing.
- Put on some contemplative music.
- And whatever you do, don’t meditate.
You might also watch videos of animals saving people and people saving animals, but some of these are contrived.
This animal non-meditation method hasn’t been tested scientifically, but it might help you become a gamma brainwave athlete without the meditation. At least it invites you to open your heart to the scientifically studied gamma-producing meditations of loving kindness that will someday change the world.
Nonlocal love at gamma frequencies,
