To Brighten Your Day…

Standard

I love TED.  One day, I hope to be invited to the conference.  But, until then, I will search their site and podcasts for endless wisdom.

[Warning: Tangent]  Tom Shadyac, director for films such as Ace Ventura, was on Oprah in May talking about his new work, a documentary called “I Am”.  Tom had suffered a horrible accident, and when he recovered he gave up much of his wealth and went on a search to find…honestly, the meaning of life.  What he discovered – and what he covers in his documentary – was:

  1. It is scientifically proven that the entire human race is connected.
  2. It is human nature to be cooperative rather than competitive.
  3. If you don’t do what your heart wants you to do and follow your passion, it will destroy you.

I want to share with you a video posted on TED earlier this year featuring Eric Whitacre, composer.  I cannot find a more direct demonstration of the connection of the human race than this.  It is so moving, and I hope it has an impact on you:
