Things that make you go hmmm…

The Art of Living Podcast: Things That Make You Go, Hmm

Welcome to another episode of the TAO Living podcast, The Art of Living. I’m your host, Lou Corleto, and today we’re going to explore some intriguing concepts that will make you go, “Hmm.”

Have you ever noticed the health food section in a grocery store? It’s interesting to think about what that implies about the rest of the store. If that section is labeled as “health food,” what does it make everything else? It’s a thought-provoking observation about our society and the way we categorize things.

We live in a world where we drive on parkways and park on driveways. We have life insurance for death and health insurance for sickness. We even use natural lemon juice in our dish detergents while consuming artificial lemon juice in our drinks. These contradictions make you wonder about the choices we make and the labels we assign to things.

I had the incredible opportunity to explore Antarctica a few years ago. Witnessing the majestic humpback whales migrating thousands of miles without deviating even one degree left me in awe. How do they navigate the open ocean with such precision? And the penguins in Antarctica, enduring extreme temperatures and winds, huddle together to protect their eggs and themselves. They instinctively migrate from the outside to the inside and vice versa, without any leader guiding them. It’s fascinating to think about how these animals tap into their inner guidance and trust the process.

In contrast, during the devastating tsunami of 2004, countless lives were lost despite our advanced warning systems. However, the wild animals sensed the impending danger and sought higher ground, saving themselves. How did they know? How do they tap into their instincts without directions, maps, or GPS? It’s a question that makes you ponder the innate wisdom within us and why we often fail to access it.

Science has shed some light on these mysteries. Harvard Medical School recently discovered that humans possess a protein in our eyes called cryptochrome, similar to the one found in animals. This protein is believed to play a role in our intuitive abilities. We’ve been told that we have five senses, but in reality, we have more. Our sixth sense, intuition, is a powerful tool that we often overlook.

Furthermore, science has revealed that there are more brain frequencies than the commonly known beta, alpha, theta, and delta. Gamma and epsilon are states of higher consciousness that we can tap into. These states of awareness are available to all of us, yet we often fail to access them.

So, how do we reconnect with our inner guidance and tap into our intuition? The answer lies in the art of living, a philosophy that combines contemporary science, spirituality, quantum physics, mysticism, and Eastern philosophy. Tao Living, as derived from 40 years of personal experience and backed up by scientific research, offers a way of life that can be implemented by anyone.

When we are fully present in the moment, we open ourselves up to life’s invitations. By letting go of the need to search and allowing our inner light to connect with the guiding light, we align ourselves with the flow of life. Tao Living brings us to the intersection of science and spirituality, providing practical tools to experience presence and transform our lives.

Our thoughts shape our reality. When we align our breath, eyes, and mind, we align with life’s invitations, and presence finds us. Awareness is curative, and through new experiences, our minds are stretched, preventing us from reverting to our old ways of being and seeing.

I invite you to join us for this year’s Tao Living Experience, The Art of Living, from May 16-19, 2024. This transformative retreat will take place on our beautiful sanctuary, nestled on 92 acres at the foothills of the Cherokee National Forest. It’s an opportunity to reconnect with your inner guidance and vision, and walk your life forward in trust.
