In our Spring 2021 issue, Foster Gamble of the THRIVE movement shared with us his insights into living from the still centre, or “sweet spot”, that inspires perfect peace. Enjoy the sneak peek of this article below!
The Sweet Spot
…for a Positive Life
by Foster Gamble – Co-Creator, THRIVE Movies and Movement
As a drummer, I called it “the groove.” As an athlete I was always looking to be in “the zone.” As an instructor of the nonviolent martial art of aikido, I trained and taught about centering in the “hara” or “dantien” – the “One Point.” I knew this phenomenon was one of the keys to a successful, enjoyable and positive life, but I had no idea how vast the implications were until I started traveling around the world checking out various inventors, healers and shamans. This was the vetting quest that would ultimately lead to my commitment to create THRIVE II: This Is What It Takes.
The star of our film is The Unified Field.
It turns out that scientists like Einstein, Bohm, Wheeler, Fuller, Russell and Young came to agree with mystics like the Dalai Lama – that we all live within a boundless sea of energy that creates and connects everything. I got to ask the Dalai Lama in person one day, “What is at your leading-edge? What are you most excited about these days?” He answered, “Meeting with western physicists…because they are finally starting to get it!”
It turns out that this sea of energy is always in motion, always spiralling in infinite doughnut-shaped vortices – from the smallest Planck Units through the vast clustering of galaxies.
Every one of those fractal torus forms is centred by stillness. As individual humans, we too are this fundamental pattern. The better we balance our inflow and outflow of energy – physically, emotionally and mentally – and the more centred we are, the more productive and positive we can be.
Dr. Todd Ovokaitys showed us his discovery that a “phase – conjugation” of sound waves and laser light could be balanced in such a way that the inflow and outflow created a still point whose resonance could awaken billions of dormant human stem cells that were capable of astounding physical healing.
Think back to a time you were singing in the shower. All of a sudden, you hit a particular note that resonated beyond all of the others. The surrounding acoustic energy jumped to a new level. Think of a time when you were watching a sunset or sitting in deep meditation and an unusual level of stillness invited a sense of boundless connection with the cosmos…
