I may be addicted to TED. I do not consider this a bad thing. On the contrary. I go to the site and sort in various ways until I find something I haven’t heard before that sounds interesting. Invariably it is just what I need to hear at that moment. Today I listened to two talks. They occurred at two different TED events but they are related.
First is this one. And then I listened to this one. Now I feel great. It’s not that I haven’t heard these ideas before but sometimes I need to hear the same thing several times, said in different ways by different people, before it really sinks in to my mind. As for applying the information, that is often an effort of will. Repeatedly. And again. But each time I do it, it becomes just a smidgen easier than the time before. One day, it might even be completely automatic (I can’t wait for that moment. Just thinking of it makes me feel beatific.) Listening to TED talks or reading books or getting out into the park helps a lot. My advice to you, seek out the positive. Actively look for good in events and people. Fill your perception with goodness and beauty every day.
