  1. The Songkran Water festival The Astrological New Year and the Thai Lunar Calender Thailand's Songkran Festival is by far the most important event of the year for the Thai people. It's a time of fun and a special time for new year ritual and respect for water, the most important element in the agricultural culture of Southeast Asia. Songkran falls in mid-April every year and has its origins in ancient astrology and the position of the sun. The term Songkran itself means, ''a move or change in the position of the sun from Aries to Taurus,'' it falls sometime between April 10 and April 18 and in Thai tradition it includes the celebration of the end of one year -- 'Troot' -- and the beginning of a new year - 'Songkran'. The phases of the moon and the lunar calendar also play an important role in determining the Thai New Year. Thus, the Thai New Year is a product of astrological as well as lunar features according, to the old Thai lunar system. Buddhism has a relation to both the astrological and lunar features of the Thai calendar. Having originated in northern India, in a Hindu setting Buddhism often carried with it astrological ritual features from Brahman India. In addition, as Buddhism easily accommodated many other beliefs, such as the Tai animism, it was early adopted by the Tais of southern China long before the founding of Thailand. Many old temple structures built by Tai kings had an astrological base in terms of design and construction and these were built to represent the universe and its astronomical bodies. The aspect of the position of the sun and its movement from Aries into Taurus would have become important to the Thais in later years because of the emphasis placed on auspicious movements of heavenly bodies, and it would have become even more important to the Thais because of the importance placed on the Thai 12-year cycle in conjunction with the 12 astrological signs of the zodiac. #buddism #thaimeditation #brain #quantum #quantyco #theneuroscienceproject #positivevibes #quantumlife #pinealgland #higherconsciousness #goodvibesonly #vibratehigh #meditation #neuroscience #spirituality #mindfulness #consciousness #wisdom #quantumphysics

  1. "Shamanism goes far beyond a primary self-concerned transcendence of ordinary reality. It is transcendence for a broader purpose and the helping of humankind. The enlightenment of Shamanism is the ability to light up what others perceive as darkness, and thereby to see and to journey on behalf of humanity that is perilously close to losing its spiritual connectedness with all it’s relatives, the plants and animals of this good Earth." #DrMichaelHarner

  1. Every second is an opportunity to be better. More grateful, more inspired, happier. Every second is a battle to see good vs. seeing bad. Every second is our chance to win that battle by being aware and conscious about that exact second. Be grateful for the second and live it with all your senses activated. Life is lived by a second and not by years. Dream in years to come and realize that the only way to get there is by living this magical second to the fullest. #higherconsciousness #mindfulness #gratitude #meditation #good #consciousness #selflove
