Bonae Novae

Fifty years ago nobody would have believed that intelligent, adult people would ever go running, sweating, lifting and moving weights where you have to pay; I'm talking about a gym and today we go to the gym almost every day with great gain of our health ... Let's see thirty years ahead, not more, and you will see employees, bankers, workers, housewives, religious leaders, labor, artisans, entrepreneurs all take some time for themselves and, happily, cross their legs and sit in meditation rediscovering the most necessary thing, indeed,most natural: the liberated mind.

Inside the Meditating Brain


Grey
Frontal lobe: This is the most highly evolved part of the brain, responsible for reasoning, planning, emotions and self-conscious awareness. During Meditation, the frontal cortex tends to go offline.
Azure
Parietal lobe: This part of the brain processes sensory information about the surrounding world, orienting you in time and space. During Meditation, activity in the parietal lobe slows down.
Red
Thalamus: the gatekeeper for the senses, this organ focuses your attention by funnelling some sensory data deeper into the brain and stopping other signals in their tracks. Meditation reduces the flow of incoming information to a trickle.
Orange
Reticular formation: As the brain’s sentry, this structure receives incoming stimuli and puts the brain on alert, ready to respond. Meditating dials back the arousal signal.

Meditation

Meeting Life Here and Now

Scientific research attests that Meditation raises the immune system, increases the thickness of the cerebral cortex, and brain cells regenerate. We find joy and peace given to us from the fullness of ourselves.  While meditating, our life is in the palm of our hands and we return to the simple and true sense of ourselves and of reality.  Meditating is like if we bring always with us the most intense moments of our lives.  What joy, and how much talent is hidden in your heart!
