Transcript

Lesson for the social benefits of meditation we are all related. Indigenous or native peoples around the world practice the belief that all humans, animals and the natural world are related. The Lakota nation has a prayer matok way awesome in the Hindu greeting nama stay, are examples. We talk we listen is an acknowledgment that everything in creation is my relative nama stay means the divine light in me acknowledges the divine light in you. And when you are in that place, and I am in that place, we are as one scientists are finding out there's something to that According to Lynne McTaggart book the field, the quest for the secret force of the universe, quantum physicists have discovered that everything in the universe including the human mind and body is connected by a vast quantum energy field. In other words, everyone and everything are connected.

In a nutshell, quantum physicists have proved that native peoples were right. In the book, why God will go away brain science and the Biology of Belief. physicians, Andrew Newberg and Eugene akili report their research on the brains of Buddhist monks and Franciscan nuns during deep meditation or prayer. They discovered that the portion of the brain that orients us in the physical world, helping us separate them from us, essentially shuts down during deep meditation, creating a feeling of oneness and connectedness with the whirled around them. We're also more effective learners when we relax. I know it seems counterintuitive, but taking more breaks can make you more productive.

A relaxed mind is a creative mind. I get some of my best ideas during meditation. I'm not even looking for them. They just come because there's room for them. A high priced priced attorney I used to work with was told by his biggest client that he'd pay him his hourly rate to take walks on the beach and think about the case. That was a Smart Client, and we won that case.

In our next lesson, we'll learn about a famous meditation experiment that further proves this research.
