I´ve lost you once, then I found you. Once again I lose you, but this time for good. There´s an emptiness spreading inside of me, I wish we would have gotten much more time together.I'm panicking, crying, it all feels so unreal. It´s all so definite. To think about not getting your phonecalls anymore and hear your voice, to meet up with you, to hug you, to laugh together, it all makes me gasp for more air. The love all around me makes me stay strong. I hope you can hear me.
I love you!

I just love this presentation by Derek Sivers (be sure to check out his great recommended reading list) explaining how to start a movement in less than three minutes.
While the footage is somewhat hilarious, it makes for serious thinking at the same time. Without his followers, a leader wouldn´t be much of a leader. Like Derek is saying, it was really the first follower that transformed the lone nut into a leader.

This shows that access to clean water and toilets is not to be taking for granted, even in our part of the world. For a couple of days now, sitting in the tram on my way to work, I´ve noticed an older homeless man sleeping outside on a bench. While praying for him to get blessed with at least a home, I count my blessings of having one.

A while back, I saw a video done by Greenpeace protesting against Nestlé, maker of Kit Kat, because of their use of palm oil which brings serious consequences:
Nestlé, maker of Kit Kat, uses palm oil from companies that are trashing Indonesian rainforests, threatening the livelihoods of local people and pushing orang-utans towards extinction.
I spread the word about this on Twitter, and got very excited a couple of weeks later to read about Nestlé having decided to stop using products that harm the rainforest. Way to go Greenpeace!

The other day I found this speech where Charlie "Tremendous" Jones shares the story about his highly unusual businesscard. Charlie recognized that people tend to threw businesscards away but they would not threw anything like a book away. So instead of giving away traditional businesscards, he started to give away books with his contact information included. There´s also a longer audio interview with Charlie discussing this subject.
Charlie "Tremendous" Jones was an avid reader and used to say:
You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for two things, the people you meet and the books you read.
A Tremendous Life: The Story of Charlie "Tremendous" Jones (watch trailer) is a newly produced DVD giving you an intimate look about Charlie´s life.
You can get your own copy from Tremendous Life Books or from Amazon.

I´ve just been watching the movie The Shift for the third time. It still leaves me with a deep sense of peace and freedom. The concepts in this movie that really empower me are the things Dr. Wayne Dyer says about surrendering, being of service and connecting to a higher energy or Source and just let it work through you.
In the movie we get to follow the frustrated filmdirector trying to make a name for himself and his film crew filming and interviewing Dr. Wayne Dyer, the busy and overworked wife and mother of two seeking her own expression in the world, the rather self-absorbing businessman and his wife and a few people who are living on purpose and already have made the shift. They will all be deeply touched and transformed during their stay at the beautiful Asilomar Conference Grounds on the Monterey Peninsula, California, USA.
Throghout the movie, Wayne talks about two phases in life, the morning and afternoon of life. How we since childhood have the false belief that more is better and that we early start to identify ourselves with our possessions and with what we do and have achieved. The Shift is highlighting the different sides of the Ego and how to go from ambition to meaning.
This is a lovely movie that I heartily do recommend. Apart from the important message the movie conveys, it also brings you a wonderful scenery from Asilomar.
You can get your own copy of The Shift or view the movie online.

I loved the movie Pay It Forward and was delighted to hear about this real life story in true pay it forward style.
...a mystery couple, who didn’t leave their names or numbers, walked into a restaurant, finished their meal and then set-off a chain reaction of generosity that lasted for hours.

It feels somewhat akward to be so far away from Haiti and not being able to help in more profund ways in the aftermath of the earthquake. We have tried to help in the best ways possible, in this case that was donating money to the Red Cross and sending Reiki to the situation to help those in need and the rescue efforts.
Ways to help Haiti earthquake victims and the rescue efforts:
- The British Red Cross
- The American Red Cross
- Doctors Without Borders
- How to Help Haiti Earthquake Victims (Chris Pirillo´s great article about how to help

Ernest Hemingway practiced this interesting rule to avoid writers block and to stay in the flow.
The best way is always to stop when you are going good and when you know what will happen next. If you do that every day … you will never be stuck. Always stop while you are going good and don’t think about it or worry about it until you start to write the next day. That way your subconscious will work on it all the time. But if you think about it consciously or worry about it you will kill it and your brain will be tired before you start.
