If your mental attitude is positive, even when threats abound, you won’t lose your inner peace. On the other hand, if your mind is negative, marked by fear, suspicion and feelings of helplessness, even among your best friends, in a pleasant atmosphere and comfortable surroundings, you won’t be happy.

+Amazon.com can we please have rating with headline and details as optional, at least for video reviews. I might not want to write a review just rate it, especially if it is digital.

Like the conversation. Says so much about human thinking and social.
 
We Are Naturally Born Storytellers

It is one thing to lie to others. It is less understandable how one can knowingly lie to one’s self. White lies, fibbing and even bigger porkies are all part of the social contract. We never say completely what we think because the narrative which runs in our heads, works in advance to bring up all alternative scenarios and consequences and then gives us all the possible options to choose from. So, at work, we agree that our boss’ inane marketing plan is “super”, we always say “No” to the question “does my bum look big in this?” and we never tell our best friend he’s acting like a jerk, when he is. 

We also get into the habit of labelling our cowardice and lack of action as “strategic thinking”, always tell ourselves that we did OK “under the circumstances” and actually believe that the diet, training plan, secret work project, novel, we have been planning to start is something we will begin “next week”. 

All of these activities are part of the storytelling we do. The narrative we fashion. Now here’s the interesting thing, by mentioning the words ‘narrative’ and ‘storytelling’ we assume that there is some kind of master editor inside our heads who takes bits and pieces of what we see, hear and understand, examines them critically under some self-defined spotlight of criteria, knowingly discards what cannot be used and knowingly puts together what can be used in order to end up with ‘our story’. (Excerpt from The Social Media Mind  http://goo.gl/aJLwM2

+Vic Gundotra's words that technology, used right, is there to empower us to be more human and more empathetic lies at the very heart of social media and what I like to call "the G+ way".

We have never stopped telling stories, to ourselves, to the world, to each other. But never before had we had the opportunity to tell our stories indirectly, in small doses to so many people, so directly. The connection is as deep as it is insidious. It grows on us before we realise it. Our social animal primal instincts work way before we become conscious of the effects. This is an HOA well worth seeing.

Awesome time lapse video of +Yosemite National Park
 
" Project Yosemite is a time-lapse video project set in Yosemite National Park and shot by +Colin Delehanty  and +Sheldon Neill. We started it in January 2012 after meeting through the video sharing website, +Vimeo. The idea for the project came to us during our first overnight trip to Half Dome. "

Awesome photograph. The sky over California
 
The sky over California.

+Michael Shainblum created this incredible video, called Into The Atmosphere as a "tribute to the state of California and the beautiful deserts, mountains and coastlines that exist there."

(He also filmed this in 4k format, although to the best of my knowledge hasn't published that version online.)
