Words That Work

Words That Work

Words that work on us - words to 'work out' with - words that can deepen us on the issue of belonging...and asking the question "who are we?"

If I am not for myself, who will be for me?

If I am only for myself, what am I?

If not now, when?

These are the words of Rev Ken Beldon in a juicy sermon quoting Rabbi Hillel who lived 2,000 years ago.  You sure don't need to be religious, organized or opinionated to recognize perfect territory for The Hundredth Monkey.

Do yourself the favor and listen to the podcast!

Go to "If I am not for myself who will be for me..."

Monkeytime for Social Media

Social Media Revolution

This vid makes you realize just how fast information is traveling today.

You may have seen it already - 1,467,666 views as of this post - but check it out again given the context of The Hundredth Monkey and the amazing power of the individual to affect change.

Is social media a fad? Or is it the biggest shift since the Industrial Revolution? This video details social media facts and figures that are hard to ignore.

If we can shift the consciousness of an entire group by adding to it through new individual awareness, just imagine what we can do with the kind of tech we have in our hands now.

What's on your plate today?

Can Words Make the Difference?

It is challenging to examine our habits in terms of the words we use to express ourselves, but it is also exciting. Language is an area where we can exercise our free will, creating positive change in the world around us by simply choosing carefully the words we use.
"Choose to be more conscious of the words and phrases you use in everyday life as words have power."
It may seem like a small thing, but our words have a rippling effect, like a stone thrown in a pond... we don’t need to actively try to influence people; it happens without our even thinking about it. All we have to do is choose to be more conscious ourselves, putting to rest words and phrases that are outmoded, insensitive, or harmful. We can also exercise our creativity by creating new phrases that carry positive and loving energy to replace the old ones.
This beautiful synopsis is from www.DAILY OM
a wonderful website for conscious living.

  For more support on the use of Conscious Language, "Fundamentals of Emotional Freedom"
will help you move through the emotions that are defined by the language you use.
