An Illustrated Poster for People Who Love Their Work, by Maptia

An Illustrated Poster for People Who Love Their Work, by Maptia | Ancient Wisdom | Scoop.it
'Arbejdsglaede' is a wonderful Scandinavian word that literally means 'work-love' or 'work-glad'. There is no direct translation for this word in the English language, so Maptia decided to use crowdsourcing to explore its meaning. More than 200 people who love their jobs shared three words that described how they felt on a Monday morning. A beautiful poster summarizes the results, with the size of the words representing how many people felt each emotion and what they do for a living.

The widespread use of neonicotinoid insecticides is causing a neurotoxic overload afflicting entire farm ecosystems from earthworms to bees, other pollinators and birds, writes Damian Carrington. A collapse in food production may inevitably follow.

How Does the Brain Process Forgiveness?

How Does the Brain Process Forgiveness? | Ancient Wisdom | Scoop.it

If you forgive a violent offender, are you a fool? If you forgive your abusive spouse, are you highly evolved? If you forgive the doctor who made a terrible medical mistake, are you a chump or a champion? What does brain science tell us—is forgiveness healthy or unhealthy?

 

The part of the brain associated with resolving anger is the same part that involves empathy and regulating emotions. Research shows that there is a neuronal foundation for the idea that resolving conflict and granting mercy are good for the brain and result in positive emotional states.

True forgiveness isn't easy when we are attached to the trauma. When we work on releasing the pain and view the higher aspect, then compassion for that troubled being washes over you. Forgiveness is not about turing the other cheek, nor about forgiving the action but about releasing the 'perpetrator', and yourself, from your inner prison x

Can Meditation Really Slow Ageing?

Can Meditation Really Slow Ageing? | Ancient Wisdom | Scoop.it

Age-related conditions from osteoarthritis, diabetes and obesity to heart disease, Alzheimer’s and stroke have all been linked to short telomeres.

 

One of the most effective interventions, apparently capable of slowing the erosion of telomeres – and perhaps even lengthening them again – is meditation.

 

So far the studies are small, but they all tentatively point in the same direction. In one ambitious project, Blackburn and her colleagues sent participants to meditate at the Shambhala mountain retreat in northern Colorado. Those who completed a three-month course had 30 per cent higher levels of telomerase than a similar group on a waiting list. A pilot study of dementia caregivers, carried out with UCLA’s Irwin and published in 2013, found that volunteers who did an ancient chanting meditation called Kirtan Kriya, 12 minutes a day for eight weeks, had significantly higher telomerase activity than a control group who listened to relaxing music. And a collaboration with UCSF physician and self-help guru Dean Ornish, also published in 2013, found that men with low-risk prostate cancer who undertook comprehensive lifestyle changes, including meditation, kept their telomerase activity higher than similar men in a control group and had slightly longer telomeres after five years.

 

Theories differ as to how meditation might boost telomeres and telomerase, but most likely it reduces stress. The practice involves slow, regular breathing, which may relax us physically by calming the fight-or-flight response. It probably has a psychological stress-busting effect too. Being able to step back from negative or stressful thoughts may allow us to realise that these are not necessarily accurate reflections of reality but passing, ephemeral events. It also helps us to appreciate the present instead of continually worrying about the past or planning for the future.

Healing Your Mother (or Father) Wound

Healing Your Mother (or Father) Wound | Ancient Wisdom | Scoop.it

If you choose to follow the path of meditation, you are likely to encounter what are sometimes referred to as your "karmic knots" — those physical and emotional traumas you have accumulated throughout your lifetime.

There is one category of karmic knot that may be especially hard for you to deal with, as it is for many people. This is the emotional — some would say psychological trauma that may have occurred within your family of origin. It may involve your mother, father, or both.

 

This trauma may have been caused by a parent who was absent or overbearing, who committed inappropriate actions or failed to take positive action, or who took too little or too much interest in you. Or it may have been the interactions between your parents that was traumatizing to you. In meditation it is all grist for the mill of mindfulness.

 

A trauma involving the mother or father is sometimes referred to as a "wound" because it damages the body-mind, needs proper healing, and often leaves a scar or weakness in your body or emotional makeup.

"But sooner or later, the wound can carry us toward its own remedy, if we only let it."

 

— Henry Shukman

 

Layne Arlina's curator insight, June 24, 2014 7:19 AM

Today whilst giving myself Reiki, my estranged father came through. He's been in my thoughts a lot recently and I've a feeling he' now bears guilt and regret about his life choices. I have no contact with my father and don't wish to change that, but spiritually I can make peace.

 

I was once told by a wonderful Healer named 'Halaya Samrisa Begody', 'You cannot heal without your father'. I fiercely rejected this at the time as I 'knew' he could never be a father to me and I could never forgive him for the pain he has caused. Shocked, angry and confused, I thought loudly to myself, 'No way in hell! She doesn't have a clue!'

 

A couple of years back, I joined a Family Constellations workshop with 'Liz Sleeper', not really knowing what was in store. I unexpectedly broke into tiny pieces as I watched a story that was much like the life of my fathers, played our by strangers. Pain stricken I sobbed uncontrollably as I was wildly awoken to the world outside of my own. For the first time I truly 'saw' my father. I now understand my father a lot deeper and I feel for him. Without actively trying, simply through compassion, I have begun to forgive him. 

 

I realise now that by rejecting my father, I reject myself. To fully heal I need to accept all parts of myself, even the difficult parts. No matter how painful the memory, if we look to the source their lies the solution. Im  gradually healing by allowing myself to live through the pain, to learn from it, to grow from it, as a deeper form of love develops for my father, and thus for myself.

 

I was regularly rejected by my father but I no longer reject myself.

This Is Your Brain on Writing

This Is Your Brain on Writing | Ancient Wisdom | Scoop.it

For the first time, neuroscientists have used fMRI scanners to track the brain activity of both experienced and novice writers as they sat down — or, in this case, lay down — to turn out a piece of fiction.

 

The researchers, led by Martin Lotze of the University of Greifswald in Germany, observed a broad network of regions in the brain working together as people produced their stories. But there were notable differences between the two groups of subjects. The inner workings of the professionally trained writers in the bunch, the scientists argue, showed some similarities to people who are skilled at other complex actions, like music or sports.
