A Marvelous TED talk about the brain and our perception of who we are: what a brain scientist learned from her stroke

Don't miss this incredible talk by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a brain scientist who tells of her experience of having a stroke -- and how it changed her perception of herself and the world.  It's only 18 minutes long, but is one of the most powerful talks I've ever heard. She gave this talk in Monterey, California in 2008, and it is probably the most popular TED talk ever given anywhere at any time.  If you click on the link below and watch it, you will see why.  She is amazing, and her story is magically told--and unforgettable. The audience was riveted -- and I was, too, watching it here online tonight. She calls her experience A Powerful Stroke of Insight.  I think you will agree with her that it was that -- and More.  I'm grateful that she lived to share it with the world.

Native American teachings to live by

If only all Earth residents could live by them, what a different world this would be.

From Sacred Science site:

Like many of the teachings that come from indigenous culture, the 10 virtues below are intended as a roadmap for living a more balanced and connected life. The beauty of these ancient pillars of existence is that they always remain relevant, regardless of how evolved or learned we think we've become.

10 Ancestral Teachings

1) The Earth is our Mother, care for her.
2) Honor your ancestors through your actions.
3) Open your heart and soul to the Great Spirit.
4) All life is sacred; treat all beings with respect.
5) Take from the Earth what is needed and nothing more.
6) Put the good of all before your own interests.
7) Give constant thanks for each new day.
8) Speak the truth; but only of good in others.
9) Follow the rhythms of nature; rise and retire with the sun.
10) Enjoy life's journey, but leave no tracks.

They seem so simple right? But somehow these core concepts are easy to forget or take for granted when life gets challenging.
