Faith Has Won

The month of fasting has come, 
the emperor&#8217;s banner has arrived, 
withhold your hand from food, 
the spirit&#8217;s table has arrived.

The soul has escaped from separation
 and bound nature&#8217;s hands; 
the heart of error is defeated,
 the army of faith has won. 

~ A #poem by #Rumi

Happy #Ramadan to all my dearly beloved Muslim friends from all over the world! &lt;3&#160;

the spirit’s table has arrived.

the army of faith has won.

Love is the Answer.

Stop the School-to-Prison pipeline.

"Not Afraid Of Slowing Down: Emotionally strong people aren’t in need of constant action and excitement. They don’t need to run around all day and keep moving in order to avoid their demons. They appreciate a slow moment because it brings them closer to what it feels like to do nothing but living, breathing. This is not to say that they don’t enjoy excitement in their lives, but they aren’t junkies and are more than happy to just go for a walk and smell the roses."

"…have you ever wondered why so little of the future promised in TED talks actually happens? So much potential and enthusiasm, and so little actual change. Are the ideas wrong? Or is the idea about what ideas can do all by themselves wrong?”

Of ALL of the official Nelson Mandela tributes, this one performance by 11-year-old Botlhale Boikanyo reminds us how GREAT POETS shape human history just as much as great leaders. 

The mini-poet blew away the judges of “South Africa’s Got Talent” over a year before Mandela died. Her delightful poem is way too good to stay hidden on the Internet, so press play, and if you like it, share it.

"I have cerebral palsy. I shake all the time," Maysoon Zayid announces at the beginning of this exhilarating, hilarious talk. "I’m like Shakira meets Muhammad Ali." With grace and wit, the Arab-American comedian takes us on a whistle-stop tour of her adventures as an actor, stand-up comic and philanthropist.

This is the first TED Talk I’ve watched for 2014. Most befitting!

Have you ever seen a painting of an elephant? Probably. What about a picture of an elephant painting a painting of an elephant? No? Well meet Suda who lives in Maetaeng Elephant Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The park was created to provide a unique and safe environment where all elephants are treated well and are free of harm from poachers. In the early years, Suda along with other elephants would paint abstract brush strokes on paper, and slowly over time, they learned to produce two and three dimensional art. They have an incredible ability to trace back over their original brush stroke. Elephants have a keen memory and show that here by being able to repeat the same paintings and techniques.
