Music & Arts: A Time For Rest
By Nick Corsi

Try Resting

Sometimes it is the notes you don’t play.

SOME GREAT MUSICIANS WILL TELL YOU…

They will tell you this: A lot of times, it’s the notes that you DON’T play that truly make a composition what it is. An experienced musician knows when to hold back and let silence or resonance to fill the air. Sometimes we forget what “rest” can do for a piece of music, for a project, or for our work.

DO I Set A Date To Achieve My Intention?

It will happen by …when???

law of attraction: responsibility

TO CONTROL…OR TO ALLOW…THAT IS THE QUESTION

For many people who are exploring the achievement of their dreams or goals through the Law of Attraction, one of the biggest struggles seems to arise from, “do I SET time frames” OR “do I ALLOW things to happen?”

Our traditional planning processes are quite explicit about setting a date and time for what we want to see happen, and that, we should also, set dates and times for the steps that will be milestones along the way.

BUT IS THIS THE BEST WAY TO ACHIEVE ALL OUR DREAMS?

What Happens AFTER The Canary In The CoalMine Dies?

ICELAND 3 MONTHS LATER

This tiny island of  fewer than 300,000 people was the sacrificial canary in the coalmine for the global economic collapse just 3 short months ago. The Icelandic economy, laden with overseas debt of more than 10 times GDP, was the first to collapse in what will most likely be a global domino effect from the credit fallout, despite huge bailouts.

SO WHAT IS A GUY GOING TO DO?

You have lost your life savings, your job and possibly, your home…what comes next?

This story is near to my heart because of my Icelandic roots…and my grandfathers story.

Chickens in your back yard?…what do you think?

This “Monday” blog is written to honor what we believe are enlightened organizations and communities, and is normally posted on Monday, but our Monday posting has been delayed in hopes of results on a great story coming out of Vancouver, British Columbia.

Unfortunately, the  City Council will not vote until tonight on a resolution that will determine what you, if you live in Vancouver, can have clucking in your back yard. So I felt I could be late no longer. Lets talk about it and on Wednesday, I will give you the results of their vote.

COMMUNICATING YOUR VISION: TIMING IS IMPORTANT

When sharing your vision both the content and timing are vital to successful communication. I’d like to share an old story from a different era about one man’s failure to inspire his spouse to a higher level of performance.

MEN AT PLAY ARE NOT ALWAYS INSIGHTFUL

It sure seemed like a good idea. Let’s reward the guys with a home cooked meal. After a full shift (8+ hours) of drinking and carousing, some nourishment was in order. It’s not easy to imbibe for this duration and so the chosen few should be recognized for their feat. So, Joe invited the gang to his house for an early morning treat. (more…)

If the angelic voice of this messenger, and the words of his song do not do it…there seems to be little more to say.

Food for Body and Spirit

law of attraction: responsibility

CAN WE BREATHE INTENTION INTO THE FOOD WE EAT?

Across all spiritual groups, there is a ritual of reflecting with gratitude upon the food we are about to eat. It may be the actual reciting of a grace, or just a moment of quiet reflection to add spiritual energy to the food that is about to nourish our bodies.

There are scientific groups in academic institutions like Princeton, Harvard, and Max Plank Institute who are currently studying the power of intention. Much  research is also being conducted by the Institute of Noetic Sciences, along with Lynne McTaggart from London, England, author of The Field.

Now, a great supporter of the Intention research, Jim Walsh, has an exciting new product, Intentional Chocolate, a food to nourish both body and spirit.

CHANGING ONES OWN MINDSET CAN BE CHALLENGING – BUT CAN YOU SHIFT AN ENTIRE ORGANIZATION?

If you have ever tried to make a lifestyle change, perhaps to exercise more, eat healthier, spend more time with loved ones and less time at the office, you know what a challenge it can be just to make a small change in behaviourial patterns.

If you think it is challenging to change behaviours, consider how much more challenging it is to make significant mental or consciousness shifts, for oneself, and particularly, for an entire organization.

So, how on earth do you begin to shift?

IS THE WORD -VALUES-AN OXYMORON IN THE BANKING INDUSTRY?

VANCITY IS PROOF POSITIVE -IT IS NOT

VanCity, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, is in its sixth decade of operation, offering a form of social and spiritual capitalism that proves doing business in alignment with high values and integrity can also be profitable.

This unique blend of more than-a-credit-union and more than-a-bank, is a breath of fresh air in the midst of the tornadeo of devastation wrecked by banking institutions whose operating philosophies are more of a testament to the capitalistic prophecies born out of the ancient Greek myth of Erisychthon.

ATTRACTING A SOUL MATE

Ever wondered why some people are so lucky as to connect with the perfect person in their lives, while others seem destined to spend their days in the loveless hinterland?

While the Law of Attraction explains this unique occurrence in this way-you bring into your life what you think and feel about -other social scientists are coming up with their own language for the same phenomenon.

Colleen Siefert and Richard Wiseman, both Ph.Ds in psychology, refer to this occurrence as a luck factor and believe that about 90% of what happens to us is actually brought about by the way we think. They refer to it as…

DYNAMIC, DEEP, AND DIGGING IT

Attending a coffee shop gig a few weeks ago, I was told that Joy Ike was playing, and she would be a great artist to have on the bill for the Habitat For Humanity Benefit Concert I have been planning. I wasn’t disappointed, and I don’t think you will be either. If you are in Pittsburgh, check in to seeing her play and if you aren’t, check out Joy’s Myspace for a few tracks. Her sound is dynamic, thoughtful and fuses a brilliant spectrum of sound together, painting a beautiful picture.

LAUGHING YOGA

Laughing Yoga seems to be just what the doctor ordered. In the midst of all the news of gloom and doom from almost every country on the planet, perhaps, it is time to have a belly laugh.

Dr Madan Kataria, a family physician from Mumbai, India started the first Laughing Yoga club in 1995. The idea has spread, as infectiously as a good giggle, to more than 5000 clubs in over 40 countries.

Are there health advantages to a good belly laugh? Well, who better to research it, than Britain’s own Academy award winner, king of Monty Python and Fawlty Towers, John Cleese.(source: www.youtube.com)

ESTER AND JERRY HICKS – FEBRUARY 19TH – ONLINE WORKSHOP

One of the first teachers on the concept of the Law of Attraction is Abraham, a channeled consciousness, presented through Ester and Jerry Hicks. Although my jury is still out on the idea of channeling, I do find the wisdom and messages shared here to be very good. I have concluded it does not matter whether I believe in channeling or not, I do believe in the message these people are bringing to the world, however they access it.

I have followed the journey of the Hicks as they carry their message of hope and guidance for some time, and find them to be very ethical and responsible teacher

Yet Another Twist On Microfinancing – Kiva.org

NOT JUST CONTRIBUTING, BUT CONNECTING

Introducing Kiva.org, a Web 2.0 company focused on connecting generous contribution with the creative potential of those living in poverty. Kiva’s mission is simple: “to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty.” I had the pleasure of listening to Co-Founder Jessica Flannery speak this past weekend at Jubilee in Pittsburgh. Her speech offered two valuable insights:

1) A glimpse of hope - the poor of the world have the talent and creativity to become self sustaining…all they need is a boost in the form of capital
2)
Advice – on how to realize the dream of any company, Kiva’s Story has something to offer to all of us.

INSPIRATIONAL CHRISTIAN CONFERENCE WITH A UNIVERSAL HUMAN MESSAGE

Jubilee Homepage

click to visit Jubilee’s homepage

I never thought attending a Christian conference would present me with such an abundance of culture and progressive thinking. This weekend started out with a talk by Gabe Lyons, co-author of the book “unChristian,” describing perception research into how the world views Christians. This research was conducted the same way a company conducts market research to understand brand perceptions, awareness, etc .

His research suggests, among other things, that people perceive Christians as having lost touch with culture and creativity – they are sheltered…out of touch with reality. These opening remarks began a weekend of inspiration, insight, and an exposure to some remarkable individuals who prove such an argument couldn’t be more wrong.

THE ULTIMATE FOCUS…THE HUMAN MESSAGE

How will you use your God-given talents, abilities and opportunities to cultivate learning, creating, building, and serving? And…how can you accomplish these goals in such a turbulent world?

CHILD SPIRITUAL PRODIGY

What distinguishes rare and unusual talent? How does it differ from ability that is studied and learned? From where does this unique gift come?

Is it a connection to a “resource pool” we can all tap into, if only we are open to possibility? Is one born into a high level of consciousness…already enlightened?

Akiane Kramarik is one such amazing talent. She finds it difficult to articulate the source of her gifts although she has no question as to its origins. It is, she says, “a gift from God.”

Let`s Redefine Abundance

Abundance

law of attraction: responsibility

THE LAW OF ATTRACTION = ABUNDANCE

I believe one of the reasons the concept of the Law of Attraction caught on so quickly was its resonance with ideas of abundance. We are infatuated with a definition of abundance that is about GETTING more, MAKING more, HAVING more.

That is the level of understanding many people had of what this Law is all about. And a formula or law that could possibly tell us how to acquire material wealth more quickly and easily, certainly is as attractive as being given the Midas touch.

Not sure if what I say is true? – test yourself…

WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT – YOU BRING ABOUT

In a kindergarten assignment to bring 100 things to school, marking the 100th day of class, six year old, Tarak McLain took a very different spin on the 100 pecans, raisins, or M & M’s that mostly appeared. Tarak, who was born in Thailand, was attending kindergarten in Austin, Texas, when he surprised his kindergarten teacher with a very different approach to this assignment.

HE COMPLIED 100 OF HIS BELIEFS….

I believe it’s OK to die but not to kill … I believe war should stop. I believe we can make peace.
