The One Thing We All Do In The Same Language (VIDEO)

Published

on

When I was first compelled to make this video, I was inspired by a quote which naturally ended up being the title for the film: “WE ALL SMILE IN THE SAME LANGUAGE.” I saw intimate, up-close headshots of a span of colourful faces displaying the beauty and diversity of our species. The mission was simple: to epitomize the message to the viewer that despite our differences, we all are fundamentally the same and we should unite in this fact and embrace it. I elaborated and deepened the importance of that belief by writing and recording a poem, riffing on humanity’s potential (as well as the possible consequences of not uniting as a universal species and moving forward, together).

As I’m sure you are well aware, humanity is at an interesting and critical point in our history. We have never had to face such looming crises spanning across all areas of human life before with such dire consequences should we choose to ignore them. There’s a reason why Barbara Marx Hubbard referred to us as “generation one,” because we are “the first on Earth to face evolution or extinction as a species together.”

My hope with the creation of this video is to get the viewer to consciously realize this reality, not to dampen one’s spirit with the realization that doom and gloom lie on the horizon, but to spark the fire in one’s heart to consciously make the decision to say, “Yes. I want all of us to prosper and I will do my best to play my part. I will not give up on us.” It’s about embracing what collective evolution is all about within the very essence of our beings. And the foundation of that? Love.

If we can learn to love, truly, deeply, totally, unconditionally, we can transform the planet. It’s about acknowledging the fact that “we all need love, we all need to eat, we all need a roof over our heads and a warm bed to sleep, we all bleed red, we all breathe air, we all live on earth, the only planet we share.”

We only need to look at what’s going on in the world to know that much work still needs to be done. There is war, poverty, environmental degradation, systemic oppression, corrupt banking and corporate systems, hunger, illness, bigotry based on superficial character traits (sexuality, race, religion, class, etc.), violence within our communities; there exist so many open wounds we must heal. In order for us to move forward, it is very necessary for us to tend to those wounds. And how do we tend to those wounds? How do we bring healing and rejuvenation to ourselves, to our communities, and to the world at large? We do it with love.

This article is an extension of the video, meant to be a call to action. The world needs you to love; first yourself, and then slowly working outwards. Love is a powerful force. It is what will give us strength to push us through and outwards of the dark times we are currently facing. Love is the power that will heal. I know this to be true because I’ve seen it within myself and my own life. I know this to be true because this very organization, Collective Evolution, was born from a place of love. And look at how much of a positive, influential force it has been in the emergence of a more beautiful and conscious world! When we love, we heal. When we heal, we transform. And when we transform, we not only do so ourselves, but we also transform the world around us.

The majority of the world, unfortunately, is so caught up and swept away with the negativity of the world; they focus on it, and in doing so, give it life and energy. We must—if we want to change the world—not ignore, but to simply shift our focus from the bad, to the good. Buckminster Fuller once said, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” This we must do. We must turn away from the darkness, and look towards the light; we must seek for solutions.

All you have to do to play your part is, as Gandhi put it simply, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” That’s all you have to do. We as individuals compose the entirety of the world. If we all decide to strive towards the Greater Good, grand things can happen. What kind of change do you want to see? Have the courage to live that change.

Despite our differences in skin colour, religions, economic class, language, geography, gender, sexuality, beliefs, we are all human first, remember that. It is our differences that bring a richness to our species. It is our richness that is the foundation of our strength. If we can celebrate our differences and realize that we have more in common, rather than fighting over those differences, we may have the hope of moving from generation one, to generation two, ever onwards towards greater infinities.

I hope with all my might that this is so. I know we can do it, I have faith—we all smile in the same language.

Our Discussion About Dr. Fauci Telling People To Wear Goggles To Protect Against COVID-19

Published

on

Joe, Ruby and I recently sat down for our weekly show, “The Takeaway” to discuss Dr. Anthony Fauci’s recent recommendation that all people should be wearing goggles as well as a mask in order to protect themselves against COVID-19. As most of you reading this will know, mask mandates in public settings have caused quite a controversy, especially in Canada and in the United States. Well known and reputable doctors and scientists seem to be the catalyst, having brought a lot of attention to themselves by sharing their expert opinions and research. Today, however, we are living in a very different environment as information that contradicts what’s told to us by our federal health regulatory agencies is now deleted, blocked, and censored from social media platforms and Google searchers.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, based on what I have been seeing and from our own experience here at Collective Evolution, we are living in a time where a digital authoritarian Orwellian fact-checker is patrolling the internet and censoring information, deeming it as “false” when in many cases, the information doesn’t appear to be false at all. Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty of “fake news” out there, but should people not have the right to examine information and determine for themselves what is, and what isn’t instead of having someone else do it for them?

In the episode below we share our opinions and talk about where we see things going within the next few months. It’s a two part episode, in the second part we talk about an interesting document within the CIA’s electronic reading dealing with the affect human intention can have on physical material systems. If you’re interested in that, you can access it on CETV, here.  CETV is a platform we created to combat the censorship we are currently experiencing, as many  of you probably already know of by now.

Woody Harrelson Shares A Powerful Video: ‘Thoughts From Within’ He Calls It

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Woody Harrelson shares some spoken word with a deep message.

  • Reflect On:

    How do you view our current world? Does it truly resonate with you? Is it something you want to support? If you could put your energy into a world of thriving abundance, would you? Then why so much energy into the way things are?

I sit here today having been reminded of a Woody Harrelson video after watching a movie he acted in. I recalled the first time I saw this video. It was one of the first realizations I had, about 9 years ago, that many celebrities also go through life with trials and tribulations of the average person. Perhaps not in all ways, but certainly in many. This is an obvious thought of course, but sometimes not all that common.

When I saw this video, I remember thinking, wow, I love what he is sharing, and coming from his place of influence this truly has a powerful message. This is an awesome video made by Woody Harrelson sharing some powerful thoughts from within.

In the video Woddy lays out a spoken word masterpiece that touches on all of the main aspects of our current society. If you truly take the time to listen, there is much to reflect on. And of course, there is an inspiring side of it all too.

This one is a bit of a throw back, but it’s a good one. Enjoy it!

Josh Radnor From How I Met Your Mother Just Started A Conscious Band with Ben Lee

Published

on

You might be here because you are a fan of the hit TV show, How I Met Your Mother, or maybe you have fond memories of blasting “Catch My Disease” in your car on a hot summer day. Whatever the reason may be, you are about to discover a lesser-known side to actor-writer-director Josh Radnor and Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee—who now form the musical duo Radnor & Lee.

In this very first episode of Uplifted Life’s new Redefining Success Podcast, Kosta Stoyanoff and I had the privilege of having a conversation with both of them over Skype only a few days before they left for their Brazil tour. We talked about their new musical venture, the effects of having achieved success and fame at a young age, what true success ought to be, spirituality, meditation, self-development and more! Playing the hosts was definitely out of our comfort zones, but we are glad we did it and were able to extract some valuable insights from these two amazing human beings.

There is a rumor circulating that they are a religious born again band because they don’t shy away from using words like word God in their lyrics. The truth is that they do not subscribe to any particular label and are simply fascinated by life’s bigger questions. In our 30-minute conversation with them, we found them to be incredibly grounded, intelligent and wise individuals who simply strive to get back to the basics of what really matters in life and care about becoming the best and most compassionate version of themselves. It was awesome to chat with two public figures who choose to use their influence to spread a positive and conscious message through their art!

Our intention with the Redefining Success Podcast is to collect gems of wisdom from individuals who see beyond our culture’s materialistic idea of success and have discovered a more fulfilling, whole and healthy view of what it means to lead a truly successful life. We believe that doing our part in helping rewrite the cultural story surrounding success can inspire a positive change in how we lead our lives—from our relationships to the way we do business.

Hope you enjoy the conversation and make sure to share it to inspire others!
