On Defining What It Truly Means to “Be a Man”.

Close

Contributor: Deb Svanefelt

WOW. I mean really, WOW. Has this guy ever got the picture – when we get more men and women in our world understanding what he’s talking about, doing our own inner work as adults to create this, and then teach it to our youth… the world will be a VERY different place. It will be transformed. It’s just under 15 minutes long, but worth every single nano-second. I hope you watch the whole thing.

[content_box width=”150%”]

[content_box_paper_white width=”75%”]

This is an extremely powerful video, for me, about a topic that matters so very deeply. There are lots of growing supports for women, focused on re-defining our role in the new paradigm, in terms of us owning our own power, and standing within, and up for, our dreams. That’s such important work.

And there are a few men, like this one, who are also courageously charting new territory – looking for how to re-define what it means to be a man in the world. What it TRULY means. Not just what we’ve all been brainwashed with. This guy, Joe Ehrmann, stands as a shining beacon. He speaks about this, and lives it, so clearly. I hope it resonates as much with you, as it does with me.

We need a community, with men and women working together, that encompasses the entire world with a vision like this. That’s how change will happen. It’s already begun….

And, as Mary Poppins would say – “Once begun is half done” – I remind myself of that when I feel discouraged or impatient with how long it feels like it’s taking… it’s ALREADY happening… how great is that!?

Please share this video widely – help spread the word.

And please comment – what does this stir up in you? We’ve all been powerfully affected by the old paradigm that he’s talking about – all of us, whether we’re men or women, adult and child alike.

Please comment here – I really invite you to be part of a conversation that so matters on our beautiful planet – when we all get this, humanity will stop raping and pillaging and killing.

This is truly a conversation that matters deeply. What does it say to you? How does it resonate? What does it call forth?

Like Joe says, “It’s a challenge for every man and every woman to find their own unique cause in life, and how they’re gonna make a difference in this world”… Please share with us. This conversation matters. You matter. Your dreams matter.

POSSIBILITY – Celebrate What’s Right with the World

Close

Contributor: Deb Svanefelt

A dear friend of mine posted this to my facebook fan page, (which is about loving our earth, and inspiration). This video is so totally aligned with both of those, as well as what\’s at the heart of my own message, my own dream, in the world:

[content_box width=”150%”]

Video Length 22.18

When we wake up, and pay attention to all that\’s good in the world, all that\’s inspiring and worth loving passionately, rather than allowing ourselves to be weighted down by the \”bad news\”, living life becomes a series of miracles unfolding. Each and every day. I just love that. I love living it. I love sharing it.

What I find most inspiring is when I first watched this video I had to think about it… the answer didn’t come very easily…. and then (after a while) the ideas started flooding in! Wow this was such a breath of fresh air…

This is a huge question everyone should ask their self… What if money was no object, what would you do?

Alan Watts is one of the greatest philosophers and his speech is inspiring, it could possibly the very thing you need to hear to change your life.

Video length 4:50

A taste of the upcoming feature documentary, Occupy Love. This is a community funded film. http://www.occupylove.org “Love is the felt experience of connection to another being. An economist says ‘more for you is less for me.’ But the lover knows that more of you is more for me too. If you love somebody their happiness is your happiness. Their pain is your pain. Your sense of self expands to include other beings. This shift of consciousness is universal in everybody, 99% and 1%.”

Garrett Holeve – Finding Himself Through Martial Arts

Contributor: Paul Binks

Don’t let anyone else tell you your limitations.

Coming from a martial arts background and also knowing two beautiful people with down syndrome this story lies close to my heart.

[content_box width=”150%”]

[content_box_paper_white width=”75%”]

Video length 13:07

Who do you see… a kid with down syndrome or a person who is living his dream?

The message to me is not about condoning violence or debating sport martial arts but rather, people with a disability are still people.  They have choices and Garrett’s choice is to train MMA (Mixed Martial Arts).

I am humbled by Garrett’s passion and to see him find himself through martial arts. A true inspiration!
