I think, therefore I am ... not following anymore - To follow, or not to follow: that becomes the question

Many of us spend our time, buying, eating, working, sleeping, consuming, running between the appointments of our diary.... And we don't have time to breathe, nor time to think, nor time to make choices, nor time to do questionings, nor the time to make realizations and even less time to evolve ..... or to love really, in a different way than through gifts or avoided conflicts.

The whirlwind of our lives has a numbing effect on us and makes us more malleable to external influences. Less we are able to think for ourselves, the more we will tend to adopt the prevailing ready-to-think, without realizing that the opinions it suggests to us don't correspond in any way to ourselves.

It is our convenience to the system which allows it to perpetuate

Our convenience leads us to hold capitalism, the rich, the political and business leaders, as responsible for all the harm of the system, without truly realizing, not only that our own mentality is working on the same mode of thinking as the one which we are denouncing, but also that we get certain advantages of this system, which enslave us and force us to participate actively to it without realizing it.

Have you ever tried the rice experiment?

You may have heart of it if you are familiar with the concept of "water memory" introduced by Professor Emoto.
This experiment may lead to see and understand that our thoughts and intentions may have a concrete effect on the good conservation of cooked rice, for weeks or even months. Living this implies not only to believe it, but also to understand the implications that are related to all levels of our lives.

From opposition to non-violence

The opposition generates : opposition, or submission ..... temporarily.
This is actually already at the level of the way of thinking behind the attitude of opposition that we miss our goals. For, by opposing, we impede, and sometimes, we even prevent us reaching our goals. Our attitude is leading to behaviors that often can not be accepted by the interlocutor. For, the opposition is a serious obstacle to dialogue and negotiation. In the worst cases it can stop the communication, and give way to strategies of violence.
The opposition occurs in the register of the balance of power.

Non-violence in its essence, is not opposed to individuals. It simply does not work with what is the problem.
The process of non-violence consists in saying, "I do not agree with you, I can therefore not cooperate with your actions, and I will do everything to get what I want, but I never will make you any harm to get it: I will do nothing in the kind of contempt, destruction, slander, etc. and I accept all the consequences that you decide to inflict me, including that of not getting anything, losing freedom, or even losing life. I will just maintain my position until we can talk and find a solution that suits both of us. "

From the hundredth monkey to the morphic fields – From the legend to the scientific hypothesis

Maybe you already know the 100th monkey phenomenon, this observation by scientists in Asia in the '50s, concerning the transmission of learning from a community of monkeys to other communities without any known means of communication between monkeys involved.

The theory of biologist Rupert Sheldrake on morphic fields corroborates in part the phenomenon of the hundredth monkey.
While we usually think that our memory is located in our brain, that our genes are responsible for inherited traits and that our thoughts are only the consequence of chemical and electrical phenomena inside the brain, Sheldrake postulates that it is otherwise.

The changes that we introduce into our lives at an individual level would then have an effect around us even if we don't reveal them or communicate about them.

A plate for our health, the one of the planet and of all its inhabitants

Our plate perfectly reflects the state of the planet. If we look at food on it, its nature (meat, vegetable), its quality (organic, industrial), its origin (local, distant), its mode of production (ethical or not), the journey that it has made to reach us (1 km by bike or 10,000 km by plane), or the changes it has undergone (irradiation, cooking, preservation, packaging, ....);
we can therefore determine the quality of life of those who produced it, the rate of pollution it has generated, the amount of water and energy it requires to mature, the harm or benefits that it does to our health, the damages it has caused to the environment.
Most of the food that arrives on the plate of an average Western consumer has contributed significantly to a negative impact in all areas. This is not inevitable. Daniel Cauchy offers several concrete ways to change that.
