Forgive any inane blather as I was unable to sleep all night (as I usually work nights) and now have to be somewhere at 8 AM. May I just say *&%$!
I like the term Attention Connection specialist. And I'm interested in the spiritual connection question. I find it easier to be connected to the higher power and to my own spiritual/psychic power when I don't have too much mental chatter going on. For some, meditation helps and for some its prayer, and I don't really think it matters much. Larry Dossey postulated a similar thing in his books about the healing power of prayer.
This world is very full of mental static and I think more and more people are becoming disconnected, not only from a higher power but from their own spirit. So there are a lot of people who are essentially zombies buzzing about like so many bees. Though I think bees are probably much more at peace than these folks. At some level we all need to be in touch with our spiritual nature. I know it distresses me when I start feeling like a hamster on a wheel. We have a world of harried, unhappy people due to this constant buzzing.
I hope that made some semblance of sense. Shoot...I hope I can pass the test I have to take this morning if I'm able to ramble on that incoherently!
I'm always impressed with the questions that you pose about these sort of things. They're really worth taking the time to ponder.
