This is a tribute to all the introverts… A reminder to appreciate the hidden genius that comes forth if you accept and love who you are ๐Ÿ™‚

Susan Cain: The power of introverts: TED TALKS: documentary,lecture,talk

In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert. But, as Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated.

Our world prizes extroverts — but Susan Cain makes a case for the quiet and contemplative.

Dr. Wayne dyer ” How to be a no-limit person


If you looked up my ” About ” you’ll already know that I’m a old and big fan of Dr. Wayne Dyer’s lectures.
Twenty two years ago, I discovered his cassettes ( it still existed then ๐Ÿ™‚ ) by what people call,
an accident but I know there’s no such thing, it was meant to be.
In a time I needed good and sound advise, I ” found ” his then, new lecture collection, this one. ” How to
be a no limit person “. It would be an understatement to say, it was a revelation. It was much more, it changed
my whole way of thinking about myself, others and life.
Till today, I am ( still ) grateful for the good timing ๐Ÿ™‚
It’s not a short video but it is well spent time. He has since, made many more videos but I thought this one is
the easiest to digest for a start.
Every lecture brings you and builds you up to a different level.
I hope you’ll enjoy it!

The science of miracle by Gregg Braden


This video is something I appreciated much later and many years after having absorbed the learning’s of Bruce Lipton, so I hope I’m not ” frying ” your brains ๐Ÿ™‚ and putting you off lectures!
It needs concentrating on, so take a relaxed time to give it undivided attention, once you’ve put your mind to it, you will not see the time go by, promise.
And if you don’t enjoy that style ( it’s a matter of opinion and we’re all different ๐Ÿ™‚ ) you will find a few things he says to be a true revelation.
Enjoy!

Follow up of Bruce Lipton’s Lecture


I have the impression the other video WAS a full one but they’ve must have written by mistake 1 of 2.
This is a follow up… after understanding his idea about how the subconscious is actually the one most important place to change, he introduces the Psych-K method and his innovator as the answer to big physical and mental positive transformation. I can testify ๐Ÿ™‚ and it’s not my profession.
I go with the idea in life that, one doesn’t lose much by trying out new methods besides taking the ” risk ” of being changed to a happy version of you!
My pessimism went to a little corner of my life and my natural optimistic self was brought out to light with my creative side too.
It didn’t happen all at once but boy, did I see the difference!
Enjoy this too!

Note: This series is a follow up to Bruce Lipton’s – The Biology of Perception talk http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=9CF36E4F42048E00

Rob Williams, M.A. and Originator of PSYCH-K, discusses how beliefs determine your biological and behavioral realities and shows how to establish communication with the subconscious to “rewrite the software of the mind” and facilitate change.

PSYCH-K is a simple and direct way to change self-limiting beliefs at the subconscious level of the mind, where nearly all human behavior originates, both constructive and destructive. Its overall goal is to accelerate individual and global spiritual evolution by aligning subconscious beliefs with conscious wisdom from the worlds great spiritual and intellectual traditions.

Rob Williams has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Philosophy from the University of California at Los Angeles and a Masters Degree in Counseling and Personnel Services from the University of Colorado. He is President of The Myrddin Corporation, and Director of the PSYCH-K Centre International. Rob’s life-long exploration of human potential, combined with his background in marketing, advertising, business management — and 14 years in private practice as a psychotherapist — provides a practical, results-oriented approach to personal change.

Justice: What’s The Right Thing To Do? Episode 12: “DEBATING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE”


So, this is the last of an amazing course!
I really hope you got stimulated and took out the best from it.
I already got very positive response from the first five lectures I posted.
I’d love to hear from you for the last few. ๐Ÿ™‚

ploaded by Harvard on Sep 9, 2009
PART ONE: DEBATING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE
If principles of justice depend on the moral or intrinsic worth of the ends that rights serve, how should we deal with the fact that people hold different ideas and conceptions of what is good? Students address this question in a heated debate about same-sex marriage. Should same-sex marriage be legal? Can we settle the matter without discussing the moral permissibility of homosexuality or the purpose of marriage?

PART TWO: THE GOOD LIFE

Professor Sandel raises two questions. Is it necessary to reason about the good life in order to decide what rights people have and what is just? If so, how is it possible to argue about the nature of the good life? Students explore these questions with a discussion about the relation of law and morality, as played out in public controversies over same-sex marriage and abortion. Michael Sandel concludes his lecture series by making the point that, in many cases, the law cant be neutral on hard moral questions. Engaging rather than avoiding the moral convictions of our fellow citizens may be the best way of seeking a just society.

Justice: What’s The Right Thing To Do? Episode 11: “THE CLAIMS OF COMMUNITY”


Uploaded by Harvard on Sep 8, 2009
PART ONE: THE CLAIMS OF COMMUNITY
Professor Sandel presents Kants objections to Aristotles theory. Kant believes politics must respect individual freedom. People must always respect other peoples freedom to make their own choicesโ€”a universal duty to humanityโ€”but for Kant, there is no other source of moral obligation. The discussion of Kants view leads to an introduction to the communitarian philosophy. Communitarians argue that, in addition to voluntary and universal duties, we also have obligations of membership, solidarity, and loyalty. These obligations are not necessarily based on consent. We inherit our past, and our identities, from our family, city, or country. But what happens if our obligations to our family or community come into conflict with our universal obligations to humanity?

PART TWO: WHERE OUR LOYALTY LIES

Professor Sandel leads a discussion about the arguments for and against obligations of solidarity and membership. Do we owe more to our fellow citizens that to citizens of other countries? Is patriotism a virtue, or a prejudice for ones own kind? If our identities are defined by the particular communities we inhabit, what becomes of universal human rights? Using various scenarios, students debate whether or not obligations of loyalty can ever outweigh universal duties of justice.

Justice: What’s The Right Thing To Do? Episode 10: “THE GOOD CITIZEN”


Uploaded by Harvard on Sep 8, 2009
PART ONE: THE GOOD CITIZEN
Aristotle believes the purpose of politics is to promote and cultivate the virtue of its citizens. The telos or goal of the state and political community is the good life. And those citizens who contribute most to the purpose of the community are the ones who should be most rewarded. But how do we know the purpose of a community or a practice? Aristotles theory of justice leads to a contemporary debate about golf. Sandel describes the case of Casey Martin, a disabled golfer, who sued the PGA after it declined his request to use a golf cart on the PGA Tour. The case leads to a debate about the purpose of golf and whether a players ability to walk the course is essential to the game.

PART TWO: FREEDOM VS. FIT

How does Aristotle address the issue of individual rights and the freedom to choose? If our place in society is determined by where we best fit, doesnt that eliminate personal choice? What if I am best suited to do one kind of work, but I want to do another? In this lecture, Sandel addresses one of the most glaring objections to Aristotles views on freedomโ€”his defense of slavery as a fitting social role for certain human beings. Students discuss other objections to Aristotles theories and debate whether his philosophy overly restricts the freedom of individuals.
