How To Break Out of Your Comfort Zone

a transformingAs Humanity continues to rise to unthinkable levels of love and connection, integrating a true sense of self love is crucial. This can not be a forced process, for your soul will feel disrespected if you apply pressure or force love where it is not in alignment with how you truly feel.

Loving ones self fully and in truthful emotional alignment is a selfless seed, loving ones self openly and loud to show others what you feel you have achieved inside will only rob you of your moment for expansion.

Self esteem means for one to have a realistic respect and knowing of ones true authenticity and identity, this is confidence in its rightful position.

Self esteem that exaggerates cockiness is usually formed as a source of protection, or heart armor, and can ripple that same emotion to others.

Simply being honest with ones self about ones true strengths and weaknesses will set the space for more of who you are to emerge and integrate and will in turn help the collective do the same.a light expansion

Why is this so? Because you will have separated yourself from who you believe yourself to be in your moment of observation and where you want to be.

Letting go of all attachments to humble ones self will separate your self from your ego mind, which will in turn  start the detaching process from your restraints, limits, and attachments to the physical.

Humanity is adaptable, and we have grown accustomed to separation in such a way that it is hard to see the death-and-transformationdisharmony inside, to see it takes asking ones self the right questions.

Such as: Why do I feel imbalanced and in lack when I think about disconnecting from this or that attachment?? If your answer is because you will lack the comfort the attachment provides, the question here would be which embodies room for growth?

Making a decision out of fear of loss or gaining expansion from stepping out of your comfort zone?

Past every comfort zone is the space for transformation and expansion. In our discomfort we find our ability to be steadfast in our decisions, shinning ones inner strength like the beacon of light you are.a sunshine

So if your choice was to push through that comfort zone you will have started the process of self evaluation and introspection, and with out attachment to certain belief patterns you will have authentically transformed parts of your true self.

In doing this you are creating a standard for yourself and the collective,this standard is not a loud one, it is a humbled one.

The saint does not go out to the streets with a load speaker announcing his/her self mastery accomplishments. No rather,  they embody it mindfully with the grace of a still expression.

I wish you luck on your journey.

Much Love,

Swedish City to build this amazing Crystalline Greenhouse/Energy Plant

Last year, The Bjarke Ingles Group (BIG) took on a proposal by the Swedish City of Uppsala to design a Biomass Cogeneration plant to support the energy production of the area during the winter months. Because of that, this created an opportunity to create a functional, beautiful, and visual recreational area during the summer months, as the energy plant would only be used for supplementing energy during the winter.

The proposal fuses two industrial archetypes into an unconventional hybrid: the plant and the greenhouse.through harnessing the economies of scale associated with greenhouse structures it is possible to create an enclosure that lends the design a light and transparent quality. consequently, the crystalline volume serves as a colorful invitation for exploration and education.

-DesignBoom

The designs were based off of the work of Buckminster Fuller, whom is known worldwide for his work with Sacred Geometry and Geodesic Domes!

Why Interstellar was such a Powerful Movie

WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS IN RELATION TO INTERSTELLAR & INCEPTION

I was just reading something by Noam Chomsky when all of a sudden this image floated into my head about Christopher Nolans latest work…

Actually, the thought started with Inception and how he used really simple – yet ideas with meaning to take you outside of the world you thought you knew and into something that was… different.

inception_paris_660

But it wasn’t like, “psychedelic different”. I mean, why was it that you could do anything you wanted in a dream world except for fly, morph, teleport, or become a giant squid monster? Why the limitations?

Surely that would have made it easier to do, right?

Learn-How-to-Celebrate-Your-Limitations-for-Life-Success

As I thought about it, what I came up with was that It must have been (at least in part) a purposeful decision to communicate the message and meaning of the story to a large audience in a way that wouldn’t freak them out.

That movie could have gotten crazy…

We have 3D limitations. We are subject to them all the time, and thus, in order to truly connect with something it has to be outside of, but relatively close to our understanding of reality.

But nonetheless that movie generated a predictable wave of interest in lucid dreaming, which had a positive effect on the people who connected with it in that way, and then attention and focused was diffused until the next big cosmic movie came out.

6a00d8341bf7f753ef01bb07b10d55970dMy thought then trailed onto Interstellar…  Where we’ve now come full circle in this article, and how this movie was really an attempt at a slow and steady increase in the feeling of constriction of time, before blowing the lid off of concepts of “time” altogether.

Like, all throughout this movie you are getting more and more nervous, concerned, worried…. We are running out of time. Time is of the essence, everyone is getting older, all of your loved ones are going to die.  Continue reading

Would you live in this Carbon Positive House?

Designer Archiblox has recently come out with what they describe as “The worlds first Carbon Positive House”, meaning that it generates more energy than it uses. Archiblox is quoted stating “it is expected to offer the same environmental benefits as 6,095 native Australian trees.”

The following are images and quotes from the designer as to the nature of the structure and how it works!

carbonhouse4

“The house’s large, double-glazed windows are used to bring sunlight and warmth into the structure in the winter. Sliding walls of vertical planters act as shading devices in the summer.”

carbonhouse10

There are two zones in the house. One side, which the architects refer to as the “buffer zone,” faces north, capturing the sunlight in the winter and pulling it into the house. In the summer, it traps the harsh sun so less gets into the living space. Edible planters adorn the wall.

The houses uses sustainably-sourced materials with formaldehyde- and VOC-free finishes.

carbonhouse9In-ground tubes also help with ventilation, pulling cool air through the house from the south side.

carbonhouse2

An airtight building envelop helps naturally insulate the structure. The appliances in the house are energy-efficient, and use greywater recycling.

The garden walls also wrap over the roof of the structure to further insulate the home and act as a living roof.

While this model is more of a flat good for 1 or 2 people, archiblox has several models for families of many sizes! You can check them all out here. 

Enjoy!

The Visual Progression of Sound-Levitation Technology

acousticlevitation2I am so into watching levitation technology evolve since I first learned about it several years ago. The idea and premise is rather simple, and the evolution of this technology feels like its a no-brainer at where it will lead… Airships, Cloud Cities, and Hoverboards!! Heck yes!

And while we are probably a ways away still from levitating an entire city perpetually in a healthy way that doesn’t harm the environment, we have made tremendous strides in this field in the past few years. Just check out this video, you’ll see what i’m talking about.

LevitatingWater550The essence of levitation technology is the countervailing of gravity. It is known that an ultrasound standing wave is capable of suspending small particles at its sound pressure nodes and, so far, this method has been used to levitate lightweight particles, small creatures, and water droplets.

The acoustic axis of the ultrasound beam in these previous studies was parallel to the gravitational force, and the levitated objects were manipulated along the fixed axis (i.e. one-dimensionally) by controlling the phases or frequencies of bolted Langevin-type transducers.

acoustic-levitation-3In the present study, we considered extended acoustic manipulation whereby millimetre-sized particles were levitated and moved three-dimensionally by localised ultrasonic standing waves, which were generated by ultrasonic phased arrays.

Our manipulation system has two original features. One is the direction of the ultrasound beam, which is arbitrary because the force acting toward its centre is also utilised. The other is the manipulation principle by which a localised standing wave is generated at an arbitrary position and moved three-dimensionally by opposed and ultrasonic phased arrays. We experimentally confirmed that various materials could be manipulated by our proposed method.

If we can combine this information in the future with an efficient energy system… say, combining Solar with Hydrogen power… I think we have a winner here :)

Revolutionary Beekeeping Box Harmonizes Mankind with Bees

DCIM105GOPROI don’t normally look at Indiegogo campaigns… but this one caught my attention. Blowing up a $70,000 goal with a massive interest, they have generated over 2 Million Dollars in a very short amount of time with this incredible new invention that has the potential to completely change beekeeping, agriculture, and many, many other industries all at once.

Meet “Flow”, a revolutionary beehive invention, which allows you to harvest honey without opening the hive at all, and absolute zero disturbance to the bees.

“Flow is the most significant innovation in beekeeping since 1852.”

Before now, I was never a person who would buy a beekeeping rig to make my own honey…. I can no longer say that this is true. After seeing this, I am in 100%, and am excited to have a beehive that belongs to the community that I’m apart of.

In the old days, beekeeping was a full-time-job. It’s a constant labor of love to have to sedate the bee’s, take out the hives, scrape off wax, pour the honey out, clean it, and put it back…. you probably saw that in that video above.

beehive1In that process, bee’s are killed, angered, and their homes and hard work are essentially destroyed. It is not healthy for anyone, and is likely one of the many problems as to why the bee’s are all seeming to die. (That, plus all of the microwaves and vibes we are pumping out with our technology… but we’ll solve that problem next time.).

This is the beekeeepers ultimate dream come true. A safe and efficient method where you just turn the tap and watch as pure, fresh, clean honey flows right out of the hive and into your jar. No mess, no fuss, no expensive processing equipment without disturbing the bees in the least.

In exchange for a healthy and lasting home for the bees where they can be safe, they will make you all the honey you could imagine. That’s pretty amazing, wouldn’t you say?

“This really is a revolution. You can see into the hive, see when the honey is ready and take it away in such a gentle way”.
