TROM: The Reality of Me

TROM the reality of me

If you haven’t heard of this yet, TROM is a 13 hour long documentary (yep, 13 hours) that discusses everything from the big bang to the current state of humanity, and everything else in between (religion, education, science, war, health, UFO’s, death… the list goes on and on.) Once you’ve gotten the bigger picture, it focuses on alternative solutions such as the Venus Project. Good stuff, worth a look!

There Is a Space

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

When we react to something, what actually happens is that our brain thinks to itself, “Hmmm, where have I encountered a similar experience before?” and then it re-acts, meaning: acts again. It’s a simple survival mechanism, but it doesn’t have to run on automatic. At any given moment we have the option to pause and say: “Thanks, but no thanks.. This time I’m responding differently.”

Little Italy Street Art

The streets of Little Italy NYC were packed tonight and the place were buzzing with tourists, restaurant goers and street vendors. We were invited to a birthday party at a bar nearby, but I was more interested in sneaking out and photographing some of the amazing murals and art around the area. Little Italy has really turned into a hot spot for artists to showcase what they have to offer.
