One Response to “Living in a Mindful Universe with Dr. Eben Alexander – Episode 100”

  1. Jenna

    What an amazing interview with Eben Alexander! Congratulations to Lisa on 100 wonderful and fascinating interviews! It is interesting how Dr. Alexander was adopted as a baby like Lisa was. I understand what Dr. Alexander and Lisa mean when they say they feel abandoned by their birth parents who put them up for adoption. I don’t claim to know directly the abandonment someone feels from being a child who is given up for adoption, but it is important to remember that being put up for adoption is not abandonment, since there are many women who give birth to children who do not have the means or ability to take care of them, so giving a child up for adoption in those circumstances is the most loving action a parent can take. One of the things I learned from Lisa is to not allow bad things that happened to me in the past to affect my enjoyment of life now, and that has helped me immensely.

    I also appreciate how Lisa and Dr. Alexander talk about how there are so many synchronicities in life, and that we need to pay attention and be open to the signs that we receive. Noticing those signs makes life much more enjoyable and interesting. I agree with Dr. Alexander that it is probably a problem that people are leaving religion, since there will need to be something to replace it, but I do think the decline of the more authoritarian dogmatic religions is a good thing. I think spirituality will still be an important part of people’s lives without organized religion.

    I like how Lisa and Dr. Alexander talk about people being disconnected from each other because they are constantly looking at their phones, even when they are sitting down with other people such as at a restaurant. Now that we constantly have easily available entertainment, we are not used to spending even a few minutes without reading or listening to something. Because of this, I think it is probably more important than ever for people to make meditation a part of their daily lives, since it provides us the important ability to go within and take advantage of the Divine wisdom that is available to all of us.

    I like how Lisa and Dr. Alexander talk about gratitude and forgiveness, forgiveness is not about the other person or agreeing with what the other person did, it is more about maintaining our own inner peace. I love Lisa’s suggestion of thinking of five things every day to be grateful for. Reminding ourselves of all of the wonderful things we can be grateful for is very uplifting.
