This morning I was driving my daughter to her weekend Chinese class and we had a very interesting conversation. She was complaining about her inability to always find interest in continuing to learn Chinese whilst living in Germany and this took us to musings about the human brain and how we, humans have so much unused potential. It has been said that humans only use 10% of the brain capacity and once we push and struggle to learn new things, we are perhaps activating otherwise dormant wirings in our brain and faculties. She became very interested in the process and walked to the class with a spring in her step.

Every single child carries in them a great potential for the future. The future is unknown, it has not happened yet and each little new life has the possibility to create a better chance for a life that is nearer to human purpose. Yes to helping them lead us to this new world…

larger than life
Have you ever wondered why entities that aim to exercise power over us are always large, imposing, overwhelming? Government buildings, houses of religion, temples, Egypt…
The first thing that I registered when looking at Egyptian art is how large everything is, how oppressively daunting it is. The first reaction is to feel small in the face of it, and less significant. But isn’t the human significance and power more concentrated in the smaller worlds? Isn’t the whole universal power coded in every cell of the human body and just waiting to be activated to its highest potential by personal development?
Just a ponder along the way…
