  1. A New Story of the People – Charles Eisenstein

    March 22, 2014 by claudio

    The world we see around it’s built on a story…by Charles Eisenstein

    1:30 we are not separate from the universe
    2:00 there is not an external universe out there
    3:00 we are moving to a different story
    3:20 tiny actions
    3:56 every act that comes from the understanding of interconnection of inner being is a spiritual act and also a political act
    4:06 by acting from a different story we disrupt our mythology and we offer an alternative
    4:30 generosity, forgiveness, being in service of something larger than yourself
    5:20 let go of paradime of control
    6:00 you are here in service

    Thank you Angelo for this other wonderful after the bell. And thanks introducing Charles Eisenstein to me.

    Got this from Episode 71 of Latest in Paleo

    I am listening Latest in Paleo, one of the best podcast out there.
    After the bell, Angelo Coppola played this clip:

    Neil Gaiman – Inspirational Commencement Speech at the University of the Arts 2012

    4:00 distance mountain, my goal
    5:00 failure
    6:50 do things you love
    9:50 Ability to make art – make good art
    11:20 do that stuff that only you can do…the one thing that you have that nobody else has…it’s you!
    13:14 people get hired because…
    14:10 people keep working…because their work is good…easy to get along with…delivered on time…2 out of 3 is fine
    18:49 pretend that you are someone you can do it
    19:00 be wise
    19:30 make interesting mistakes, break rules, leave the world more interesting, make good art

    I LOVE IT!


  3. Gong Meditation

    March 20, 2014 by claudio

    Yesterday my friend Reda invited me to a Gong Meditation experience.

    You lay down for 1 hour while somebody plays the Gongs (can you play the gong? do you gong the gong?)

    It was a tremendous experience. Relaxing to begin with. And I don’t know, I had beautiful unexpected thoughts coming to my mind.
    At the end I had this smile in my face. During the meditation I went into places, I met people from the past, I reacted certain situation from the past and ended them differently. I made peace with a lot of people.

    Anyway, I loved it and I want to try it again.

    This is how it sounds like…but of course it’s like live music, being there is a totally different experience.

    Here the website for Gong Meditation in Vilnius
