Leap: New Personal Technology

Huffpo reports:
San Francisco-startup Leap Motion has unveiled its eagerly-anticipated first product offering: It's called the Leap, it's the size of a thumb drive, and for just $70, it will enable you to completely control your computer by waving your hands around like Tom Cruise in Minority Report.
('ey, don't let the Cruise thing distract you.  You can wave your hands around like anybody you want)

The size of a thumb drive.  Works on any computer including laptops and netbooks.

Watch it in action!

A Headline Like the Old Days

In the golden age of print journalism, great headlines were a treat on their own.

Hat's off to Huffpo for a flirt with the old tradition today.  A new look and feel (with a brightly colored logo on line), but stuff like "the old days."

The article is here

Conference Presentation on Interfaith

On Saturday, May 19, 2012 I presented a paper on a multi-religious panel of speakers at a  New York City conference sponsored by the Universal Peace Federation.

Here is the promotional flyer for the program:

There were a number of good and important speakers and presentations during the event.

My own panel, excellently moderated by Ricardo de Sena, included Dr. Pedro Guzman, Imam Shamsi Ali, Ms. Joyce Schriebman, Dr. Jeffery Rubin, and Swami Parameshananda.

My paper was entitled: Ethnicity, Culture, and Interfaith.  You can read it here.

~ॐ♥ This Accupressure chart is an outline of where individual meridians are in our hands. Those meridians of energy, are attached to the whole, and greater part of who you are. Working on 'one thing at a time' allows you to invest some vibrational escrow into feeling good. 

If you wish to allow more energy OR 'CHI' in to a certain area of your body, find its spot on your hand, PRESS down into the spot for 4 seconds, and release for 2...REPEAT...until you feel your energy shift.

As you are doing this, its an added bonus to have some high vibrating sounds accompany you...Like a Chant CD, or rain sounds. This will allow greater focus, and once you are more adept at 'feeling' the sensation of balance, you will be able to do this anywhere, regardless of distractions.

Im always playing with my hands, as these meridians are really strong, and helped me with my chronic pain. When the pain flares, like if Im on the bus and someone douced in cheap perfume...I need relief fast, this works LIKE A CHARM!!!

I hope you find some breakthroughs in your own healing by being more in tune with your energy flow ♥ ॐ ~

Our House

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house-building business to live a more leisurely life with his wife and enjoy his extended family. He would miss the paycheck each week, but he wanted to retire. They could get by. 

The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but over time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career. 

When the carpenter finished his work, his employer came to inspect the house. Then he handed the front-door key to the carpenter and said, "This is your house... my gift to you."

The carpenter was shocked! 

What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently. 

So it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. Then, with a shock, we realize we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over, we would do it much differently.

But, you cannot go back. You are the carpenter, and every day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. Someone once said, "Life is a do-it-yourself project." Your attitude, and the choices you make today, help build the "house" you will live in tomorrow. Therefore, Build wisely!
