The Quantum Mechanics of “Staying Calm”

Barack Obama recently exposed his true spiritual philosophy, but few picked up on it.  It’s too simple for those who prefer their spiritual messages in long, difficult to comprehend, Biblical-Speak.  The message is clear and profound: “Remain calm.”

Calmness is a quality we need in a president and a practice we must each institute to save our economy, communities, environment and foreign affairs.  Being calm is the key to staying in control in the face of insurmountable adversity.   When we speak of control we aren’t talking about the shoddy form of control used exclusively by insecure women, tyrannical men or Fascist governments.  We’re talking about controlling the mind, the heart and the spiritual energy of one’s being.

Let’s talk about the Quantum Mechanics of Calm.  When adversity ‘rears it’s head’, like Putin in Alaska, we have two choices.  We can allow the fight or flight impulse of the mammalian brain to become engaged, either kicking someone’s ass (I dun know…maybe Iraq?) or running away to hide and plot a fight without a thought of diplomacy (Uuumm…maybe Iran?).  Fight or flight is important software wired in the hard drive of the human mind.  This wiring occurred some time ago – millions of years ago the be sure.  Fight or Flight was mandatory in an environment of dangerous dinosaurs and saber toothed tigers afoot – right Sarah?

But seriously, the excess release of adrenaline during the Fight or Flight, stress response can cause all sorts of problems from dilation of the blood vessels to loss of the ability to have an erection!  It really behooves all of us to stay calm…

“In most modern situations, humans rarely encounter emergencies that require physical effort, yet our biology still provides for them. Thus we may find our stress response activated in situations where physical action is inappropriate. This activation takes a toll on both our bodies and our minds.”   Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fight-or-flight_response

Repeated stress responses can cause mental disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder,  and panic disorder, in which the stress response is activated apparently by nothing.  Here are a few more issues caused by enabling the Fight or Flight Response: Wikipedia 08

  • Acceleration of heart and lung action
  • Inhibition of stomach and intestinal action
  • General effect on the sphincters of the body
  • Constriction of blood vessels
  • Liberation of nutrients for muscular action
  • Dilation of blood vessels for muscles
  • Inhibition of Lacrimal gland (responsible for tear production) and salivation
  • Dilation of pupil
  • Relaxation of bladder
  • Inhibition of erection
  • Auditory Exclusion (loss of hearing)
  • Tunnel Vision (loss of peripheral vision)

So now you begin to understand, if you hadn’t, the magic of  Barack Obama Spiritual Foundation and indeed the premise and philosophy of his entire campaign.  Even Obama supporters like John Ridley have desired to see more fight in the man, more might, more brawn.  But look at the facts.  Becoming stressed, worried, and responsive to outside stimuli, without imposing modern logic, reason and intuition, is ‘totally caveman’.  We no longer need to let Fight or Flight run mad in our minds and bodies.  We are evolved and enlightened beings!  How profound?

Obama has epitomized ‘Calm’ in the campaign so far.  Not once has he responded in anger to even the most outrageous McCain tricks.  He has always used measured calm as his loadestar.  Now that’s judgement.

Maybe this is why McCain doesn’t want anyone to see those medical reports.  I am sure the above list of stress induces symptoms is standard for the generation of men and women who never employed spiritual cognition in responding to the perils of their day.  Mr. McCain is 72 years old and still displays primal behavior patterns that the right wing Church people, in all their elevated spiritual ‘enlightenment’, have yet to remedy.

The fact of the matter is Viagra is the top selling drug in the United States – hmmm, I wonder why? (Refer to the list of Fight/Flight symptoms)

It’s the mark of an enlightened being to override the Fight/Flight function by remaining calm…

I mentioned breathing a sigh of relief a bit earlier in the article (was it in reference to Palin?).  Proper Breathing is actually the key to overriding the ole programs of the reptilian and mammalian brain! Breathing is the key to maintaining calm in the midst of adversity.  This is a scientific fact.  When we become angered, stressed or worried about a given situation, our physical apparatus responds to the thoughts and images with a new breathing pattern.  Fast and furious for anger, fear, stress or panic, slow – too slow – for worry and depression.

Gaining centeredness again requires negating the force of the breathe and choosing to reinstate normal, healthy, mental functions with normal, relaxed breathing.  Staying calm is the most important action one can take in a time of crisis.  Why?  Staying calm means overriding the emotion you are experiencing (Fight/Flight) and injecting a state of peaceful, intelligent, observation.  From this harmonious mental state, we inherently make the right choices.  This is what real leadership is.  Calm, cool, level-headed cognition.

We can’t have our leaders gallivanting about in various states of chaos, anger and panic while making important decisions that affect the rest of our lives!  We can’t have leaders who have gone about the business of leadership for over 30 years in this manner.  Just imagine John McCain – angered by the mere thought of ‘losing a war’ (oxymoron?) reacting to the stress of desiring victory – making choices about how many years to stay in Iraq.  Far worse is the notion of Mr. McCain – irritated by the thought of defeat, intent on proving himself a Maverick – making an executive decision to choose a dangerously unqualified running mate.  What happens when his post traumatic stress syndrome really kicks in?  It’s Sarah or bust.

It’s time for real change.  Real Change happens when we truly give up the old ways in exchange for the new.  In this day and time, we are Quantumly aligned to a paradigm shift of major proportions.  Staying Calm is the foundation of the shift.  Barack Obama has displayed stunning grasp of this concept.  It is a spiritual concept simple enough for all to agree on.

Let’s make it happen!  Leave a comment – let me know what you think!

All we have to do is Stay Calm. (And Vote of course;)

  2. Marvelous. Simply Marvelous. I have noticed his calm cool composure and I have not only been moved by it but inspired. Very well written piece. Just having heard of him and watching him demonstrate this peace makes me desire to be a better person. A calmer person. Which translates into being a mature person. Barack is a real role model.

  3. Who want’s to have an erection when they’re being pursued by Saber Tooth Tigers?
