The One Mind
In Taoism and many other ancient philosophies the concept of one mind reflects the belief that we are all connected and that connection stems from a universal mind. It is also believed that humans are the only living creatures on earth that have difficulty making the one mind connection. While it is understood that we are on the top of the food chain, our ability to manifest thoughts into reality have been both a blessing and a curse. The desire to control and to acquire material things have taken most of us away from the connection to the universal mind some in a greater degree then others.
The desire by a few to keep the minds of the masses programed has kept the power of the mind a secret for centuries. Social programing has led many of us to believe that we need something outside of ourselves to have peace of mind, love, wealth, health are all in our power to manifest if we can find the faith in our ability to use our internal connection to the universal mind to manifest them into our reality. As I grow older I realize that good health is the foundation to having a peaceful mind.
It was for this reason when Dr. Robert Woodbine introduced me to the one mind wellness concept of World Tai chi and Qi Gong Day (www.worldtaichiday.org) eight years ago, I was happy to work with him to coordinate the first Harlem celebration of this one mind concept. On the last Saturday in April thousands of people spanning more than 80 nations come together at 10:00am in their time zones to focus on a one mind of vision wellness and world peace.
This year on Saturday April 30th the 9th annual Harlem celebration of World Tai Chi and Qi Gong day will again take place starting at 10:00am in the plaza of St. Nicholas Park at 135th street and St. Nicholas Avenue. This one mind concept motivated me to create Harlem Holistic Wellness Week which also starts on the last Saturday in April and ends on the first Saturday in May. This year’s HHWW dates are Saturday April 30th to Saturday May 7th
Both HHWW and World Tai Day focus on helping individuals use natural wellness options like Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Ki Training to improve their health by learning to connect to the universal mind to manifest health. During wellness week this year we are asking individuals over 40 to try a natural option to improve their health. There are many wellness practitioners and wellness organizations in Harlem that you might want to explore.
Even though this year’s target is the over 40 populations, if you are under 40th you might want to learn about these natural holistic options to address your health as well.
