An idea worth spreading

THE POWER OF PERFECT ACTION: Taking perfect action insures a much higher quality of life. You can see the desire for perfection in every person when you ask a question "What do you want in life?"

If a person is unhappy, she will reply to this question "I want happiness." If the person is single and doesn't like this fact, he would reply "a loving relationship" and so on.

It's natural for us to want the betterment of our circumstances.

I'm passionate about

Self improvement, spirituality, health, Asia travel, relationships and many more!

Suzana Herculano-Houzel: What is so special about the human brain?
I love when a speech makes me look at something we take for granted in a different way. Well, this talk made me look differently at food. That's so true - raw food eaters spend much more time thinking about food, making food, and eating. Cooking is definitely lighter on digestion, at least that's what I found with my personal experience, as I tried to go raw for a few months.

Kelli Swazey: Life that doesn't end with death
I remember when I was visiting Gokarna, India, I witnessed dead people being carried on a thin wooden tray and covered with a thin blanket. Death looked like a part of life in that community. Nobody even paid attention to the small procession. I felt that it's more natural to accept death in such a way. I was fascinated to find out about such an Indonesian community. How different their perception to that of Western is. I hope people will keep their minds open and try to understand that way of viewing death instead of closing minds because their traditions are very different.

The essence of stupidity
I love when people question things that aren't normally questioned. This one got me thinking - and I love when someone makes me think in ways I don't usually think. I don't see people as stupid. Sometimes I may disagree with what someone does or how they think. Sometimes I think those people lack life experience or that my life experience disagrees with theirs. It's narrow-minded to label someone "stupid". Everyone has a limited perception of things no matter how intelligent they are. So in my opinion we should accept and respect those who have less life experience than us or a one that's different to ours.

Teachers should get tough.
Creativity can be learned? For me it comes when there's no thinking; when there's space - a gap between thoughts. Stress makes you strong? Stress is one of the biggest killers of the human race; it ages you quickly and lowers your immune system. Praise makes you weak? Yes, that's true for those who focus on it too much and no longer see their flaws.

Has school lost its function ?
Schools neglect developing many essential skills; they almost never touch the right-brained activities and many schools (almost all schools in India, for example) don't encourage a REALLY independent thought. Follow the authority, memorize the stuff you won't need in life and follow the rules to learn obedience seems to be the accepted standard.

Kevin Breel: Confessions of a depressed comic
Kevin is such a strong person to come out and talk about his deep depression. I completely agree with him that the world doesn't want to hear the cries of those that need help. I hope that with this video more people would open up to listening to those in need. Many problems would be solved if people would have non-judgmental friends who would listen to them. Then they wouldn't feel that much alone and judged. Let's not turn our backs to those that need us.
