You sleep every night under a canopy of infinite heavens, and by the grace of unseen forces you can often see the stars in these heavens, and are held to the earth and oxygenated by the air and fed by the world of plants and animals and all these miracles — the miracle of gravity, of quantum physics, of photosynthesis and respiration and cell division, all these laws and processes, all these mysteries only faintly described by math, all these things are forms of love.

We are held together by all this — all of us, dogs and cats and zebras and you and me. We crazy, arrogant creatures full of illusion and rage and self-pity are held by this stuff in an unshakable embrace; we are in it and of it; we belong to it; its substance is our substance; there is no difference between us and a star.

If I were the sun and I did not love humans, I would burn them out so fast. Wouldn’t you? So it must be love. There can be no other explanation.

"You carry many images of who you are that sit in a matrix of energy around your body. What are images? They are pictures of reality you hold in your mind. Pay attention to the pictures you send people. Are you holding them back, or helping them rise higher with your images?" ~ from Personal Power Through Awareness by Sanaya Roman

What images do you hold of yourself?

Very interesting, what do you think?

The TED talk TED won't share with you...

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others." ~Nelson Mandela

Last night I discovered a beautiful combination - the film "Half Nelson," followed by this speech by MLK Jr. I highly recommend the two together.

"A momentum is building among those who want to give back to society and take care of each other and our planet. Social networking is bringing these people together and there is an energetic sparkle in the air and a sense of hope that something new will emerge." Do you feel it too?

I look around me and I see two worlds. I see a world of nature and of magic and of synchronicities. Of freedom and of love. And I simultaneously see a world of mental construct, of bars, of pain and of separation. I look around and I don't know where I am. Or who I am.

Here we go!
 
This is a great 5 minute talk.

I think TED were utterly gutless not to post this until they were pressured hard.

We hear the conventional wisdom about the "job creating" rich all the time so it is well past time that someone pushes back against it. What better than a someone who made billions as an investor?

Here is TED's graceless explanation: https://tedchris.posterous.com/131417405

Breathtaking speech.

"When you come alive in this way, you'll realize that true generosity doesn’t start when you have some thing to give, but rather when there’s nothing in you that’s trying to take."

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead
 
[How the banks are robbing us blind, plainly explained.]

Oh, from the mouths of babes. Sometimes it takes the unobstructed eyes of youth to cut right to the truth and see things as they are. This courageous, intelligent young woman carefully, simply, and methodically explains what's wrong with the financial system of Canada (and other countries), and shares how this can easily be remedied.

Thoughts? Can anyone with financial expertise share their reaction to this? Agree/disagree?
