Beautiful and inspiring video from environmentalist and sustainable living advocate Paul Hawken called Blessed Unrest and WiserEarth.
"It is up to us to decide how will we be,
who will we be..
It is about solutions.
Humankind knows what to do..."
Click here to view the video of Paul's speech and here to join the web community Wiser Earth.
I'd be honored if you joined me there as well - let's see what we can do. Gael Chiarella Alba

Do you know the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto? You can find out more about his research and view some amazing pictures on his website Welcome to the World of Water.
Through his research into the nature of water and crystals, he has photographs documenting the difference between a "thank you" water crystal and one that embodies "you fool." Powerful stuff, since we ourselves are mostly ... water.
The human body is more than 60 percent water. Blood is 92 percent water, the brain and muscles are 75 percent water, and bones are about 22 percent water.
Essentially, the capturing of water's 'expressions' is what Dr. Emoto has done. He developed a technique to photograph newly formed crystals of frozen water samples. A powerful microscope in a very cold room allowed this to be done.
Through his work with water Dr. Emoto advises us "We have learned that our human consciousness is related to water at deeper level through water crystal technology. And this fact has resonated with different people in different countries. However, this fact has not been taught at any school. The words, “Thank you” have positive vibrations and the words “You fool” have negative vibrations and to ignore is to deny the existence itself and this will give the most negative effects."
Moving into current world events, this is a You Tube link to his frame of reference for the waters surrounding the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan. Here too is a link to his blog so you can keep the action going.
He suggests the simplicity of the following prayer for the waters of Japan.
"To all people on the earth, we are water.
Let’s become one by offering love and gratitude to water...
Water is what connects everything.
By doing this you will be joining with people from all over the world who are doing the same thing. Originally scheduled as a single prayer, Dr. Emoto has called for the addition of ten days of joined intention.
(Say to yourself)
Please forgive me,
I thank you,
And I love you."
What an astounding thing to know how you can use the power of your mind to affect change in this situation - just as Ken Keyes suggested in his work on The Hundredth Monkey Effect.
May you always know the power of your own consciousness, and find peace for yourself and the world.
