When Thoughts Take Flight…

When Thoughts Take Flight

On the wings of  Imagination
Often unstructured  & unstoppable
With thoughts on a speed train
Of it’s own making.
Flights of oblivion
Shaping up the illusions
Into patterns  in the moulding
Pliable or fixated.
Each has a journey in time
And a reason to be!

On Gratitude

Truth of the moment

Matters more than what’s gone by

Or what’s yet to come

For both are not there in your hand.

So how about being grateful

For the moment that is now!

Practicing Gratitude every day

Consistently in time

Transforms the spirit of the being.

Life becomes even more meaningful.

So take a moment every day

To sense the world with heartfelt Gratitude.

The Senior Brain

An interesting read today definitely worth a share!

Please take time to read the following article:

THE BRAIN OF AN ELDERLY PERSON.

The director of the George Washington University College of Medicine argues that the brain of an elderly person is much more plastic than is commonly believed. At this age, the interaction of the right and left hemispheres of the brain becomes harmonious, which expands our creative possibilities. That is why among people over 60 you can find many personalities who have just started their creative activities.

Of course, the brain is no longer as fast as it was in youth. However, it wins in flexibility. That is why, with age, we are more likely to make the right decisions and are less exposed to negative emotions. The peak of human intellectual activity occurs at about 70 years old, when the brain begins to work at full strength.

Over time, the amount of myelin in the brain increases, a substance that facilitates the rapid passage of signals between neurons. Due to this, intellectual abilities are increased by 300% compared to the average.

And the peak of active production of this substance falls on 60-80 years of age. Also interesting is the fact that after 60 years, a person can use 2 hemispheres at the same time. This allows you to solve much more complex problems.

Professor Monchi Uri from the University of Montreal believes that the brain of an elderly person chooses the least energy-intensive path, cutting unnecessary and leaving only the right options for solving the problem. A study was conducted in which different age groups took part. Young people were confused a lot when passing the tests, while those over 60 made the right decisions.

Now let’s look at the features of the brain at the age of 60-80. They are really rosy.

FEATURES OF THE BRAIN OF AN ELDERLY PERSON.

  1. The neurons of the brain do not die off, as everyone around them says. Connections between them simply disappear if a person does not engage in mental work.
  2. Absent-mindedness and forgetfulness appear due to an overabundance of information. Therefore, you do not need to focus your whole life on unnecessary trifles.
  3. Beginning at the age of 60, a person, when making decisions, uses not one hemisphere at the same time, like young people, but both.
  4. Conclusion: if a person leads a healthy lifestyle, moves, has a feasible physical activity and has full mental activity, intellectual abilities DO NOT decrease with age, but only GROW, reaching a peak by the age of 80-90 years. So don’t be afraid of old age. Strive to develop intellectually. Learn new crafts, make music, learn to play musical instruments, paint pictures! Dance! Take an interest in life, meet and communicate with friends, make plans for the future, travel as best you can. Don’t forget to go to shops, cafes, concerts. Do not lock yourself alone – it is destructive for any person. Live with the thought: all the good things are still ahead of me!

👀 Information!

A large study in the United States found that:

▪The most productive age of a person is from 60 to 70 years;
▪ The 2nd most productive human stage is the age from 70 to 80 years old;
▪ 3rd most productive stage – 50 and 60 years old.
▪ Before that, the person has not yet reached his peak.
▪The average age of the Nobel Prize laureates is 62;
▪The average age of the presidents of the 100 largest companies in the world is 63 years;
▪The average age of pastors in the 100 largest churches in the United States is 71;
▪The average age of dads is 76 years.
▪ This confirms that a person’s best and most productive years are between 60 and 80 years of age.
▪This study was published by a team of doctors and psychologists in the NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE.
▪They found that at 60 you reach the peak of your emotional and mental potential, and this continues until you are 80.
▪ Therefore, if you are 60, 70 or 80 years old, you are at the best level of your life.

Pass on this information to your family and friends aged 60, 70 and 80 so that they will be proud of their age.

On perspectives

A thought provoker…

People called him mad man but I was surprised when he moved close to me, and said, “can I ask you a very important question?” I nodded, in acceptance, and then he asked, “am I a mad man?”
The obvious answer, from a sane person, will be, “no”, and that was what I said. “Thank you!”, he replied; then he said, “just because I don’t see things the way other people do, does that make me a mad man?” “No”, I answered again.
He bent down, wrote “W”, and asked me what he wrote. At this point, I was already feeling ashamed, getting involved in a lengthy conversation with him. In a hurry to leave, I said “w”, but I was amazed when he replied to my answer, “You only see ‘W’, because of the angle at which you are looking at it. If you turn upside down, you’ll see “M”; from the right side, it is “3”, and from the left side, it is “E”.
The fact that I don’t see things at the perspective that everyone is seeing it doesn’t make me a mad man, he said. Then he left.
I pondered for so long about this though; and more, its application to life. We act, and relate to people, based on the perspective at which we are looking at their situation. Have you taken your time to look at other possible perspectives, views and angles, maybe, a little from their own view before we judge them? I then decided that, before I get angry with, or act against, or judge, anyone that has done something unfavorable to me, I will view it in at least three possible perspectives, mine, theirs and others’.
So, before you judge people, before you rage your anger on them, take a little time to view their angle or perspective, and, if you still cannot see a reasonable reason, then you may act REASONABLY.

In just having the courage to express ourselves,

We open ourselves to a vulnerable and creative self …

The Clarity of Simplicity

Whatever causes turbidity
Causes imbalance of being

In creating space for a pause
In allowing time to heal

Turbidity moves on
To make way for clarity.

In the turbidity of thoughts
There is density of the mind

In the simplicity of thinking
There is clarity in the being.

On Attitude

Life at times can be both wondrous and mundane but contains joy,

And the attitude we choose to wear,

Decides if we wish to find the joy in the things we do.

And we become what we choose to be and see!

Have a wonderful day!

Your undivided attention

Listening is about attention

And being present wholeheartedly

Respect is a two faced coin

You gotta give to get

Sincere attention is sincere respect!

Truth of movements

True learning happens when we realize we are the teacher and we are the student. And life teaches the greatest lessons without anyone uttering a word or at times in just the sheer presence of a good soul .

Likewise as we dance from our heart without a spoken word and open ourselves to realization and acceptance of new possibilities… true dancing happens!

Little things

Many drops of water

Make an ocean

Great things always begin

With the little things

Success is a matter

Of every small step taken

Such is is the power of little  things

For together they can make a big impact.

Enjoy the little things in life 

Attend to the little things that come by

For someday these little things

Create a meaningful world.
