This week’s meditation takes the form of a talk given by Jill Bolte Taylor, a Harvard trained brain scientist. One morning in 1996, a blood vessel in Taylor’s brain exploded. Within moments, her left lobe--the source of ego, analysis, judgment and context--began to fail her. And much to her shock, she felt great. She'd been given a ringside seat to her own stroke and a host of powerful insights as a result.
Taylor describes the differences between our left and right brain and her experiences of oneness. As she concludes, "Nirvana exists right now."
After watching the video, you might be interested in reading Taylor’s book, “My Stroke of Insight”.
