Bede Rundle (R.I.P.) - Does Consciousness have Purpose? (Closer to Truth)

How has inner experience radically emerged from cosmic dust? How has our vibrant private awareness developed in what seems to be a wholly physical universe
Juan Agramonte's insight:
How has inner experience radically emerged from cosmic dust? How has our vibrant private awareness developed in what seems to be a wholly physical universe? Is consciousness only an accident of biology? Or does consciousness have deeper meaning? We best be careful not to come to final conclusions based on early science. 
 From the PBS series 'Closer to Truth', presented by Robert Lawrence Kuhn.

Are we accountable for our actions? - Circle of Atonement

Are we accountable for our actions? - Circle of Atonement | Inspirational Blogs | Scoop.it
In religious traditions like Christianity and Judaism, we have an incentive to be good because God holds us accountable for all of our actions. But if the world is an illusion as A Course in Miracles says, it seems that there are no rules.
Juan Agramonte's insight:
The Course is always encouraging us to avoid hurting others so we won't experience pain, and to bless others so we will experience blessing.

The Hidden Power In Trusting Your Gut Instincts

The Hidden Power In Trusting Your Gut Instincts | Inspirational Blogs | Scoop.it
It’s one of the most commonly doled out nuggets of professional advice: "Go with your gut." But it’s a very challenging system to consistently implement. "We spend our workdays in our outer world. We’re interacting with our team members and clients. We don’t have enough time in our inner world where we can reflect on those experiences and listen to what our gut might have to say," says Hana Ayoub, a professional development coach.

Why is trusting your gut so powerful? Because your gut has been cataloging a whole lot of information for as long as you’ve been alive. "Trusting your gut is trusting the collection of all your subconscious experiences," says Melody Wilding, a licensed therapist and professor of human behavior at Hunter College. "Your gut is this collection of heuristic shortcuts. It’s this unconscious-conscious learned experience center that you can draw on from your years of being alive," she explains. "It holds insights that aren’t immediately available to your conscious mind right now, but they’re all things that you’ve learned and felt. In the moment, we might not be readily able to access specific information, but our gut has it at the ready."

"I’ve never heard a client say, ‘I regret going with my gut,’" says Ayoub. Think of all the time and mental energy that can be conserved by not having to overthink your next move.

Pamir Kiciman's curator insight, January 6, 2017 11:27 AM
I always find it interesting that instinct is put above intuition. This article has good information. At the same time, I wish there were more articles on intuition. Instinct is good, it has its place. It's a more animal level of feeling things. Intuition is much more refined and can give one access to whole bodies of knowledge, not just a subset of data to make decisions and choices.

Juan Agramonte's insight:
" I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close." Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
