I found this in Ronni Bennett's sidebar today, and wanted to link it here, also. THANKS, Ronni! This is a great video - short quotes by various famous folk about what Wisdom means to them. It will reside in my left sidebar as well for awhile. Hope you enjoy this...
Keith Olbermann - at his best I think. Sometimes he is just another talking/screaming head on TV. But THIS time he makes complete sense to me. I want to hear the answers to the questions he poses. I, like him and so many others, simply do not understand the opposition on this issue.
(and yes, there is a commercial first - about 15 seconds)
I really like this song. And I love the excerpt of poem superimposed over the end of it... the hurricane clips are a bit distracting, but I'm sure they mean something to the one who posted this in the first place. And I am very grateful to her/him for doing so... :)
I'm thinking that if I consider these words every day, I won't have to worry about my own last song:
This has come around to my inbox so many times that it is clearly popular. This is the best video I've seen of it and I decided to place it here to keep it archived. It is old video, and those who've documented this believe that Christian the lion has most likely passed on. How wonderful to have this kind of memory of him.
Please go look at this video. Takes about18 minutes. This link is from a TED Talks conference - not likely the first place Ms. Taylor presented it, but certainly a great site.
Whether you vote for scientific research, prefer direct/indirect revelations from one avatar or another, or prefer believable human testimony I think you can not remain untouched by this speech.
Here's the YouTube version:
Or go search Jill Bolte Tayor in your favorite 'engine' to see the tons of people/places who are interviewing, blogging, and otherwise sharing this amazing commentary by an amazing, awakened scientist.
Thanks to Laura for bringing it to my radar; Thanks to Kristie for resending the link and adding her own insightful comments. (I'm waiting for permission to quote her here.) Kristie has replied with permission, so here are her thoughtful comments:
an energy facilitator and teacher, what I came away with after viewing
this was that Jill will be another person who will be very instrumental in
helping many to open to the possibilities that they too can tune into
remembering more of who they are by firing up the right hemisphere. What
can be termed rapture or ascension, is just that.... shifting into higher
frequencies and experiencing oneself as an energy being. I'm glad I did
not have to go through a stroke to experience it this way! I commend Jill
on getting out there and telling her story. Once the right hemisphere is
brought more on line and then balanced with the left, this seems to me then the
human will be living Heaven on Earth, or living the consciousness of, "I'm
in this world, but not of it." :-) Peace on Earth
............ahhhh what a concept!"
And when you're done with the video, go explore TED Talks. I didn't know it existed until today.
Someone with amazing computer skills and a love of women and women in art has put together an AMAZING video. It's been out on YouTube since April, so you may have seen it, but it's worth another look. I only wish it went just a little slower.....
