It may appear, due to our successful manipulation of reality for our own survival, that we are separate from nature and the rest of existence. Huxley points out that our separation from reality is an illusion. Unity with all of existence is heaven, fragmentation is hell. Where does man end and reality begin?

When we think of science, typically we think that theories are verified or unverified by a rigorous process. Unlike literature or philosophy for example, where different interpretations can be argued about forever. Is science purely no-nonsense and rigorous? Or are there theories that can be argued about forever? What are the limits of science? Does science have a lifespan, and if so, when will it end?

Edited by Focus Shift Media:

Rupert Sheldrake, author of The Science Delusion, Science Set Free, and Morphic Resonance (the Nature of Formative Causation) argues that there may be more than meets the eye when it comes to the existence in which we find ourselves. "Some pretend our consciousness is just an illusion, but that doesn't explain it because illusion is a mode of consciousness."

Every experience you’ve ever had is shaped by your mind. If your mind is in a constant state of misery, no matter how good the circumstance, you won’t be able to enjoy it. We use our goals as excuses to feel the present when we achieve them. This isn’t to say that goals are bad, but that we should feel satisfied in the process of realizing our goals. The quality of our lives can be determined by how aware we are in the present moment. This is obvious to mystics and sages, but there’s scientific evidence that this is in fact the case as well.

The meaning of tantra, and no, it’s not just about sex. Tantra is sanskrit for “theory” or “doctrine”, and refers to scriptures given by gods or goddesses. These texts began to appear in India around the 6th century CE. Tantra spreads wisdom (tan) that saves (tra). Tantra protects us from worldly harm, as well as providing spiritual liberation.

Theoretical physicist, and one of the prominent founders of quantum mechanics, Werner Heisenberg, explores the roles of both scientific and religious thinking. Are religious and scientific truth mutually exclusive? “The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.” - Werner Heisenberg

In today’s video we are discussing the divine feminine as expressed by the Mahavidyas, Goddesses that are worshipped in the Hindu/Buddhist traditions. This is exciting to me because I practice Tantric Buddhism. We are going to examine what each of these goddesses represent, as well as some techniques to embody what they have to teach us.

Since it’s the day before Valentine’s day, I figured Robert Greene’s Art of seduction would be appropriate. We will examine not only seductive characters that are commonly embodied, but strategies and pitfalls in the process as well.

Ken Wilber, founder of integral psychology, examines why the so called "culture wars" exist. There are culture wars because people at different stages of development (spiral dynamics) clash when they fight over the imposition of different values on the society they live in.

Excerpt from Under It All:

Edited by Ryan Edwards and Parker Thibault:

Secularists often ask the question "What kind of a God would allow so much cruelty in the world?" This is based on the assumption that a God would create a world that is benevolent only to a small aspect of its creation. What we may perceive as pain and suffering to us at the time may be of benefit to us in the long run. So too at a collective level, the pain we feel as the human race may help us become more resilient as a species.

"God who, in his simple substance, is all everywhere equally, nevertheless, in efficacy, is in rational creatures in another way than in irrational, and in good rational creatures in another way than in the bad. He is in irrational creatures in such a way as not to be comprehended by them; by all rational ones, however, he can be comprehended through knowledge ; but only by the good is he to be comprehended also through love." -St. Bernard

A jaded and frustrated Zoomer gives meditation and spirituality a try in the hopes of relieving his stress during the historic, multifaceted crisis he is living through. While chanting om, his higher self is revealed. By the end of his dialogue with his higher self, he starts to get some insight.

Strangely enough, the idea for this project occurred to me while meditating. This is Focus Shift's very first short film, and I hope you find it to your amusement.

"It is honorable for a man to admit his fears, resistance, and edge of practice. It is simply true that each man has his limit, his capacity for growth, and his destiny. But it is dishonorable for him to lie to himself or others about his real place. He shouldn't pretend he is more enlightened than he is—nor should he stop short of his actual edge. The more a man is playing his real edge, the more valuable he is as good company for other men, the more he can be trusted to be authentic and fully present."
