Life as a Hero’s Journey

This latest Shot of Awe from Jason Silva ties into a recent theme on this site of creating your own reality, following your inspiration, and spreading the resulting positivity.

This video describes living your life as a hero’s journey, or being the protagonist in your life and actively enriching the narrative. These concepts symbolize the process of reflecting inward to discover yourself and your passion, and then being active in pursuing that with as much vigor as you can afford.

Life exists in individual moments, and it is up to us to make sure that those moments are vast, interconnected, and grand… [Doing so] to make a masterpiece out of life, one that we would willingly live again and again for all of eternity, this is what we can strive for.

Thanks for watching, and remember…

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.


How Do Our Thoughts Affect Reality?

This video talks about the observer effect in quantum mechanics. At the subatomic level it was noticed that matter, like light, can behave as a wave or as a particle. These electrons basically start as a wave, and then take form when looked upon or measured by a conscious observer.

We literally shape the reality around us and our thoughts help determine our daily paths. Duncan Trussell, a comedian and philosopher has said loosely that this correlates with the multiple universe theories. Where everything that can happen to you does actually happen in one of these universes, and by thinking about the future we want, we can manifest that reality into being.

So what do you think? How much do your intentions affect your world?

Happy Humpday and think positive!

Consciousness and Reality… The Power of Imagination

This is a mashup of content from Joe Rogan’s podcast The Joe Rogan Experience put together in YouTube video greatness by TheParadigmShift. Joe riffs on reality, conciousness, and the power of positivity in this mid to long(ish) video. I highly recommend it along with the podcast in general.

One of my favorite quotes from the video, “If you believe in things they have incredible power over you… both good and bad”
