I’ve been reading (and enjoying) Robert Lanza’s, ‘Biocentrism’, David Bohm’s, ‘Wholeness and the Implicate Order’ and Carlo Rovelli’s ‘Reality Is Not What It Seems – The Journey to Quantum Gravity’. Also listening to Bonobo. These books had fascinating insights that influenced new poetry I’ve written. Deepak Chopra’s, “Ageless Body, Timeless Mind’ (1993) is a fascinating and in-depth study.
Cal Newport’s, ‘Deep Work’ is in support of avoiding fragmented attention; which is proven to permanently damage the ability to problem-solve and focus for long periods. A worthwhile read! I picked up Jaron Lanier’s, ‘Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Right Now’ months after deleting accounts on Instagram and Twitter, though am happier and more productive, so I reckon he has a point. Matt Haig’s, “Notes on a Nervous Planet’ is funny and anecdotal. Rainer Maria Rilke’s, ‘Letters to a Young Poet’ and Hafiz’s, “The Garden of Heaven’ were classics I had been meaning to read for a while. Both had some beautiful sentiments within the pages.
Whatever you’re up to and wherever you wander… happy creating!
