Psychedelic '60s: Home Page
THE SUMMER OF 1967, with its "Love-Ins," "Be-ins," and "Flower Power," came to be known as "The Summer of Love," and was one of the seminal moments of our generation. Over thirty years later, we who came of age during the turbulent decade of the sixties are dismayed to realize that, to the young adults of today, those years are now ancient history. The "Psychedelic Sixties" broke the rules in every conceivable way from music to fashion (or lack of it), to manners and mores. Boundaries were challenged and crossed in literature and art; the government was confronted head-on for its policies in Vietnam; the cause of civil rights was embraced by the young; and mind-expanding drugs were doing just that. Were the sixties the best of times or the worst of times?

It's also for overworked, gadget-loving geeks who need a little bit of downtime in their busy schedules. Meditation is a scientifically demonstrated method of lowering stress levels and helping your body and mind relax. This article is part of a wiki anyone can edit. Getting started There are many different kinds of meditation, but nearly all of them share a common goal -- focusing and quieting your mind. Although it may seem like you're just sitting there doing nothing, it turns out that sitting and doing nothing is actually very difficult -- especially when you first get started. Tips for beginners Start small. Find a comfortable chair that you can sit up straight in with your feet flat on the floor. There's no "best time" to meditate, though being very hungry or very full can be distracting, so avoid both of those times. The wandering mind Apps Conclusion

Be Still. | zen habits By Leo Babauta Be still. Just for a moment. Listen to the world around you. Be at peace with being still. In this modern world, activity and movement are the default modes, if not with our bodies then at least with our minds, with our attention. We are always on, always connected, always thinking, always talking. This comes at a cost: we lose that time for contemplation, for observing and listening. And worse yet: all the rushing around is often counterproductive. And when we are forced to be still — because we’re in line for something, or waiting at a doctor’s appointment, or on a bus or train — we often get antsy, and need to find something to do. Take a moment to think about how you spend your days — at work, after work, getting ready for work, evenings and weekends. Is this how you want to spend your life? If so, peace be with you. Then after a minute or two of doing that, contemplate your life, and how you’d like it to be. Then be that vision. Savor the stillness.

The 7 States of Consciousness - Psycanics: A Science of Being and Life Consciousness is not a fixed energy or quantity. Consciousness varies greatly from person to person, some people being much more aware, alert, wise, causal, loving, and happy (the Essence Energies) in life than others. Consciousness of Self (and therefore, consciousness of Essence) also varies in the same person in the normal daily cycle of sleeping and waking. They also vary according to how much vital energy we have used and wasted in thinking and emoting and resisting life. Spirituality is all about the accumulation, conservation, and wise use of energy. Note: There are 10 easily identified stages of human consciousness on the journey from Materiality to Spiritual Illumination. Your Consciousness is your ability or your amount of awareness of both Self and Other (anything in the psycanic or physical universes). The Seven States are: Dreamless Sleep Dreaming Sleep Walking Sleep Awake, Enlightenment Samadhi Illumination, Unity Cosmic Consciousness Brief explanation of each State
