Top secret neighbors come to town©️

“TOP SECRET!” a poem, a.k.a.: “Numinous Neighbors!” Sunday (August 4, 2019)

Hush!-Hush!-We’ve-done-some-“research!” ’bout-our-new-neighbors-‘cross-the-alleEy!

And-we-can-only-say: “It’s-prob’ly-‘Agent-J!’ ” &-his-wife, code-name: “Mata Hari!” *

There’s a son over there: “code-name”-a: “C!” **

An’-a–dog-‘n’-a-nother-boy! Don’t look-at-me!’

The whole thing looks suspicious (pause) for “J” hails from Mon-tana!

But-they-look-all-together-TEXAN! and-I-ain’t-seen-no-bandana!

Plus, there’s-a-Scottish-name! “Beam us up there, Scot-TEE!”

And they’re cleanin’ their-goat-head-ridden lawn, better-‘n’-you-‘n’-me!

With so many cars, we figured right away:

“It’s M. I. – 6 or F. B. I. or-the-bloody C. I. A.!

We may have to shut down [our]-“ops:” “Alien Encounters, Inc.,”

Because-they-might-notice alien body parts, which-seldom-but-sometimes stink!

They could be “double agents,” for-when-I-suggested-(we-do)-some-kar-a-o-kAYe,

“J” just smiled and-indicated: “Merle-Haggard’s-mA-MAIN-STAY!”

So, I test him-out and-said: “OK! A-duet-o’ Country Gold!”

But HE-HESITATED – and I-cogitated: “There’s-something-we’re-not-bein’-told!”

They could-be: “MEN IN BLACK,” going-undercover-DEEP,

In-this-place-of-Close-Encounters! The-night-skies-can-make-you-weep,

Because it gets so dark here! and-we’re way out in the BOONIES,***

So aliens come to visit-us-often; we’re-a-S. E. T. I. **** bunch-of-loonies!

** – We have received “intel” that “C” is planning to enroll at the local college and play football. IF he can run REALLY fast, faster than the other boys, he is likely to be an alien, since he’s got white skin! It would be like Superman of Krypton, and that’s just so unfair to the other boys AND not very “American,” if you ask us!

*** – a thinly settled, rural area! short for BOONDOCKS!

So, we’ll hold-our-judgment for-NOW, but we’ve leaked them a-copy of-this-poem,

And we’ll just wait – and SEE – IF they’re-settlin’-here, plannin’-t’-make a-happy-home,

Or IF they’re super secret government agents – or just plain alien spies,

Come-t’-check out “operations,” hidin’-the-fact [that]-they’ve-got 3-EYES!!!

Sensibility ~

“Until one nation ceases its attempts to dominate another, there will never be true freedom. Until one religion relinquishes its quest to prove its god superior to that of another, there shall never be world peace. We will never truly prosper or experience lasting harmony, until we refrain from preaching the gospel of our own moral values and our personal preferences by forcing it upon others.”― Anthon St. Maarten

Captain Cave Man, Anxiety and Meditation

Captain Cave Man, Anxiety and Meditation

‘That saber tooth looks like he wants free-range human for breakfast. Better grab my spear or get far away!’ Considering what our ancient ancestors dealt with they definitely needed highly developed survival instincts!

So to avoid becoming just another prehistoric statistic, our forefathers needed within their brain a highly evolved fear center which we now know to be the amygdala. They did, and it served them well.

The problem is that our brains are still wired much like our stone-age ancestors. While we live in modern cities free of lions, tigers, and bears our job stress, money problems, and relationship quarrels still trigger our fight, flight or freeze fear response daily.

With truck loads of scientific studies pointing to stress as the principal cause of disease, sorting out a way to sooth our primitive amygdala is critical in this high paced and stressful world we now live in.

In 2011, Massachusetts General Hospital researchers fMRI brain scanned 51 adults before and after 8 weeks of mindful meditation training. They found that these adults, who had never previously meditated before effectively silenced the electrical activity within their primitive amygdalae. This meant they had far fewer anxiety, worry, and fear signals being sent out to the prefrontal cortex.

However, what really made the neuroscientific community sit up and take notice was that the participants dramatically decreased the actual volume of their amygdalae! Even more amazing was it didn’t take years. Participants in the study accomplished this amazing feat in less than two months!

The implications of this finding are tremendous. Knowing that it’s possible to turn down our primitive brain, we can protect ourselves against the extensively documented negative effects of stress. Particularly anxiety, depression, and addiction.
