Planet B: From Renewable to Cosmic Energy; on the fear of change, healing and economy

From Renewable to Cosmic Energy; on the fear of change, healing and economy

At a point where almost all the natural resources are depleted, capitalism makes the leap to a new kind of territory: the human body and the mind. In contemporary info/affective/cognitive capitalism, the new resources are personal time, attention, affect, mental and physical capacities. It seems that everything we do in even the most personal corners of our lives is co-opted in the reproduction of some form of immaterial capital. A worldview where both the natural ecosystem and that one of the human body/mind suffers a continuous breakdown, without recovery and healing, is not very sustainable. As we said, there is no Planet B. Relatively recent discoveries in quantum-physics prove that our world, including our bodies is constituted out of very little matter which vibrates in certain frequencies, so that we experience them as solids, and even our thoughts and emotions are different forms of vibrations. Making the leap from renewable energy to cosmic energy, I am interested to the healing that can take place not just in technical terms, e.g how to reduce CO2 emissions and footprint, etc, but, in a more holistic manner, balancing the different forms of vibrations: the physical, the thinking and the emotional body. If we want this planet to heal, the physical matter will be the last to be restored as a result of a change in our mindset and emotions, that can be reflected in how we conceive and practice economy, which is the glue that binds the world together and gives it a structure. Economy is far more than numbers; it is a relational practice, revealing a lot about society and human psychology. So, is there any way to make this practice more accepting, loving, open and kind? During my stay in Planet B, I want to dedicate my efforts in healing, reenergising, research on the connection of body and mind, and on acceptance of the fear of change. You are welcome TO JOIN me, in my everyday activities that include yoga, energy exercises, guided and active meditations, being inside a Cosmic Energy Accelerator and a trip to Nordenau, to visit the famous ’healing water’. We don’t have to go far to reach Planet B; Planet B is right here, right now.
