Background Music

Background music. It all fades into background music. It just becomes sound and nothing more. It plays in the background and we go about doing what we are doing without really paying any attention to it; like when we are at the grocery store and we hear music playing. We hear it but we don’t hear it. Songs pass and we can’t even remember what we listened to. It becomes a massive shape of gray, undistinguishable really. Sometimes we don’t even notice it at all. It just plays lazily in the distance, blending together with the paint on the walls and the ceiling tile. There was a time when the melody was bright and we knew and sang all the words. Now, we don’t pay attention, we’ve heard it all before.

Aromatherapy



Does aromatherapy work? You can get a variety of opinions. There isn’t any conclusive evidence one way or another. However, some people do claim that it does help them. Now of course you can believe what you want, but you might want to try it and see if it works for you.  Some of the things it can be used for to treat include;


·         Anxiety
·         Stress
·         Insomnia
·         Depression
·         Headaches
·         Muscular aches
·         Body aches
·         Circulation problems
·         Digestive problems

The first five I can buy into and I plan on using it more often for relaxation, but I’m more skeptical on the others, but give it a try sometime. It may help your mood and let your mind relax.

Real Education



The Earth and the sky can teach us more than any old gray-bearded professor ever could in some classroom with humming fluorescent lights and fidgeting students. Real learning takes place in the real world. The woods and the lakes and the rivers uncover more about the world than a dusty old scholarly book ever could. My best friends have always been the clouds, the oceans, and the mountains. If you are one with the universe, you have no need for the trivial, no concern for the unworthy. You walk with the Dao, every step, every move.
