Knowledge Quarter: Being the Change
July 30, 2012
The Hottest Year ever (factually by all accounts) just got a little cooler. We couldn't end a blazing summer without a certified solid dropping. With this offering you're sure to be the coolest human at your next pool party. Three quality garments with all the amazingness you've come to expect from your favorite lifestyle company, as well as an entire new line of accessories that will keep you at the head of the class. The world is your classroom.
We have the power to make a positive difference in the world. A simple idea can spark a shift in paradigm and empower an entire generation. An awaking of consciousness can open our eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. We are the change! We break free from the obsolete dogmas of the past and create our own reality that brings those on the margins of society to the center of the page.
We envision a world where our educational systems, business practices, and government institutions reflect the vales of the collective and not of the powerful few. Where reciprocity rules and all social exchange is mutually beneficial to everyone. Where the word HOPE is used to do more than inspire, but to mandate action. Placing compassion over profit and the value of life over currency.
Let's rethink the human narrative, imagine a world where ideas for bettering society are shared and never hoarded. Where progress is measured by the improvement of the quality of life of all us and not just a select few. Where the human condition leads to liberation instead of desperation. Where the dream for a better world tomorrow becomes the reality of today.
Despite the fact that distraction is our current state, the capacity for knowledge which we all possess, can be drawn together and focused on an object we want to understand. Through such focus, all practices are dramatically enhanced so your progress is much faster and more profound. - The Dalai Lama
Our thoughts have the power to either condemn us to dormancy or motivate us through to our righteous destiny. We choose to think GOOD thoughts. Thoughts of inclusion and unity. Thoughts of a changing the tide and shaping our own world.
Take heed the words of the wise, so we can excel where they fell short. Learn from the pages of history, so we can indeed write our own story. Allow our experiences to serve as lessons and our choices the test. Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss the rest.
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction… The chain reaction of evil-hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation." -MLK
Life is simply a balancing act of our thoughts, emotions, goals, and values. This balancing act allows us to put everything into a much needed perspective. How we see ourselves is usually how we see the world. Perspective is everything.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
