Tangerine Dream, Maui Style

Tangerine Dream Sunset over The Field

Tangerine Dream Sunset over The Field

When I look out my back yard, I see this amazing view across the gulch and to a field on the other side. There is a Rumi quote I have loved for nearly 20 years:

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

It is no coincidence that quantum physicists also refer to the field, and that students of consciousness often refer to the field of universal intelligence. One of my favorites science + spirituality books is The Field, by Lynne McTaggart. You can check it out here on Amazon; I love my Kindle version for reading and highlighting on the iPad!
The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe

I am launching my own quirky Rox version of NaBloPoMo – National Blog Posting Month. The goal is to write at least once a day. I am intending to meet that goal, however I reserve the right to post on any of my many blogs!

If you are interested in learning more about the Beachwalks philosophy, please join the email list here – signup in the sidebar. I am starting conference calls where we can all get together and chat, in real time! The first one is Saturday, November 3rd at 9 am HST. I will email the call-in details on Friday. Check your time zone here.

Beach Walk 673 – Sunlight and Skin Cancer

iPod | 4:49 | To Embed or Email: click on “Menu.”

You know I like to present the other side of the coin frequently, and today this regards the blind allegiance to sunscreen and fear of the sun that has been commercially developed over the past decade. “There’s ample research”:http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-wellbeing/health-news/sunlight-cuts-risk-of-many-cancers-397450.html that sunlight also prevents skin cancer, and the increase in skin cancer actually correlates nicely with the increase in sunscreen! You can hear my “watch my first treatise on this here”:http://www.beachwalks.tv/2006/04/28/beach-walk-67-sunscreen-skin-cancer-hmmm/, just keep in mind I shot and edited that myself, and it’s a little long. The info is still good though! I hope you hop over – there are a lot of good links in that post!

For the locals; I shot this at the boat ramp. Hard to understand how we have lost so much sandy beach front in only 2.5 years.

Beach Walk 656 – Right Brain Bliss

iPod | 3:48

Here’s a great story. A Harvard researcher, “Jill Bolte Taylor”:http://www.barefeetshop.com/shop.php?k=jill+bolte+taylor&c=blended, had a stroke. It de-commissioned her left brain. As part of her recovery she stayed present in her process and observed life without an active left brain – the home to the logical and the inner critic in many ways. She found her bliss deep inside the exploration of her right brain.

Beach Walk 584 – The Science of Pressure

So I have been inwardly cranky about a lot of things the past few weeks – the winter weather, my cold, the fatigue…it just felt like a lot of things in life were not cooperating with me!

I finally realized this morning, that most of that pressure was originating with me. It is so easy to get on a track of thinking what should happen, what must happen! Beach Walks continues to be this great feedback mechanism about what matters, and what doesn’t. Watch this episode to learn about Rox the canary.
