Room 101, introduced in the climax of the Nineteen Eighty Four by George Orwell, is the basement torture chamber in the Ministry of Love, in which the Party attempts to subject a prisoner to his or her own worst nightmare, fear or phobia, with the object of breaking down their resistance
Well let’s hope Ashraf at Mystic Jaisalmer hasn’t got this in mind in upgrading us from The Mystic Dervish Dorm Room to a luxury room tonight. I’m feeling the love and a coming together of a manifesto for sustainable change in so many areas of my career however, shanti shanti as the locals say, easy off as they say back home.
Joking aside looking at ourselves from different aspects can affect positive change in our lives. Studying Astrology, seeing parallels in Personality Questionnaire such as Myers Briggs, referring to the personality types and constitutions in Anthropological principles, there are so maybe parallels which are not referenced as source material by modern scientific method.
Anthroposophy offers the idea that there is an interrelation between the body, soul and spiritual aspects of being human. The body experiences through the physical senses, the soul perceives and responds to the external environment and through spiritual experiences we can sense our unique presence.
Change the internal and external relationship, you effect the whole. As within, so without. As above, so below. Ancient texts, art work, ways of religious practice reflect these sacred truths. So why do we think we are so clever in re inventing conceptual or practical ways of living.
Let us honour the myriad reference points that surround us and celebrate bringing art and science right back where it can play an active part in finding ways to affect our health and wellbeing.
