Part VII - You Are Not Alone!

Blogging at the Edge of the Shift... Part VII

I recently gave two presentations entitled You Are Not Alone! - URNA! - at TEDx Victoria Harbour & at EcoZine Live here in Hong Kong. They were both powerful and poignant moments in time for me as they allowed me to distill my values & principles, as well as to pin point focus my life long message into one collected & succinct presentation.

I hope both the videos will be released soon on their respective web sites as well as getting it out into the greater world wide web for others to feel & experience.

URNA! needs to be experienced to be felt. One who feels it knows it as the late Bob Marley sings.

I think of URNA! as a tool for change, one that I hope inspires a powerful shift within and one that touches us deep at our core where our values and principles are shaped and formed. I have attempted to explain or make visible an emerging paradigm, a worldview that is influencing our collective present & shaping our collective future. Not an easy task.
Explaining a worldview to humans is a bit like explaining water to a fish. ;-)

Never the less I have started the ball rolling and I’m quite happy with the way it is evolving and growing. I hope my next URNA! presentation to be a much improved upon version. The journey journeys on...Perhaps this leads to a book one day...

URNA! is a series of slides presented in a power point format comprising of values, principles & statements that attempt to define a consciousness worldview.
The presentation then becomes an experience when one is asked to close ones eyes and meditate upon the messages assimilated and then after a short while eyes are opened to receive the final message and what I hope to be the  ureka moment, the shift.

I have dedicated URNA! to the man who has had the most profound impact on my life & worldview, the great late Willis Harman.

I sincerely hope you will be able to experience and feel You Are Not Alone!

As Willis once said “Perhaps the only limits to the human mind, are those we believe in.”

Until soon

Bobsy
