    Pros: great concept and overall presentation. More people need to be talking about this.

    Criticisms: try having someone else standing behind the camera talking to you, I think you may come off sounding more natural. Adding overlaying media may help as well. I started making videos like this recently and this is what I’ve learned so far. Here’s one for reference: http://vimeo.com/user14321194/iphonechangesworld

    It is for Korea but it isn’t in a lot of other countries. Unfortunately I am not sure which, but if you do your research you can find some.

    The other option is to just go to a country and start trying to find a job. If it doesnt work, you traveld there. If it does, cool! That’s a little bold for me but you can do it if you want! good luck! message me if you have any more questions

    6 Reasons Why YOU Should Consider Teaching English Abroad (& How To Do It)

    Beautiful piece. I think it is comforting to know that there are people of this generation who see this now, because someday we will be the ones who decide how the system is built – and we can change it accordingly. Not everyone is ready for that change ^^^^^. But for those who are, LET’S BRING IT!

    Nice work Stephanie.

    A Long Lost Letter From Your Innate Creative Self

    Your Life-Changing Montage

  • 2012-06-17 @ 18:51:34

    @jordan Wow.

    I’m going to have to say that this is where I’ve been hoping HE would go for a long time. There was always this collective feeling of optimistic disappointment that we could change the world but we couldn’t at the same time. Communication was the first step. Then collaboration. And now action. And the best part is all these things will be present at Valhalla. =)

    I’m definitely in once the second wave comes. I’ve got that same feeling inside me now, that there’s something I need to do on my own. And as @Marc said, I think that this thing for me is about spreading the ideas of corruption and negativity associated with money and the society we live in now. Once I scratch that itch though, I’m Valhalla bound.

    ONE QUESTION: What is the end all goal with this? Globalized communities? Super large communes like this? I feel like there will always be people who are not ready for something like this and therefore there will always be a divide. And as history has always suggested, divides create hostility. And group hostility usually leads to evil. If you think about “being the change” and yet also protest, isn’t that protest a form of resistance and therefore a call for retaliation? I mean, if resistance leads to suffering, and suffering to consciousness, then are you prepared/ willing/ aware of the potential suffering that must be involved in an endeavor like this? I know that’s a lot of questions, and seems a little down, but I’m just playing devil’s advocate here for the sake of discussion. Don’t get me wrong, I’m def in on this. But if we were in one of our earth safe buildings right now discussing things under natural light with organic food on the table, I’d ask the very same questions.

    How We Can (Actually) Change The World – Pt. 3/3

  • 2012-03-18 @ 04:32:12

    First of all, this is precisely why I love this site. I love the sharing of ideas and information here already and completely agree with all the opinions above.

    The Language:
    You do NOT have to know the language at all. In fact, most teachers here do not. But I took a different approach. I have been studying hard for the past six months and am now at a point where I can communicate pretty well, barring many grammar errors, and I am loving it. I have found a passion for language learning and it has greatly improved my ability to teach. Korean and English are completely opposite languages in many ways, but what they have in common is phonetic alphabets (actually Korean’s alphabet is easier to learn pronunciation wise), so if you just learn their alphabet you can help your students with pronunciation and help yourself get around (I am using a website called www.talktomeinkorean.com to learn. Everything is free). Also, most of the mistakes your students will make are due to translation errors they are making in their head, so if you know the language you can help them learn better.

    6 Reasons Why YOU Should Consider Teaching English Abroad (& How To Do It)

    I totally agree with Kathy. As much as this may be a “failure” or mankind to support something without fully researching it, it is also proof that the entire world can work together toward causes. Viral content in the future will inspire people to research… and using this situation as a frame of reference, hopefully only the most legitimate causes will be supported and succeed.

    The future is bright.

    A Quick Note On Kony 2012 And Confirmation Bias

  • 2012-02-16 @ 20:40:50

    Jordan: I would add attach a strong emotional reason as well.

    The physical change is a great idea because it acts as a reminder on a daily basis. However, since motivation is emotionally driven, I think its really important to think about it. In the past, I have written it down, or discussed it immediately whenever announcing a change I am going to make. In getting it out it helps solidify the change, lets those around you know how to help, and increases ones momentum in that direction.

    I totally agree Phil! I have been doing the same thing for a while and have “read” so much more because of it. I find it hard to convince others to do the same though. I feel like it takes a priority shift for most people..

    @Matt J: The music thing is what a lot of my friends say. But they usually say that because they don’t truly enjoy what they’re learning. Would you say that movies cut into your music time? If not, then thats probably because you really enjoy movies..? Maybe this doesn’t fit you, but its just something I often run into speaking with my friends.

    10 Unconventional Insights From 3 Months in Thailand and Laos

  • 2011-07-19 @ 11:04:06

    @Jake I completely understand and respect your criticisms. When I originally wrote this article, I was in such a state of belief that it seemed that it must be true to me. To explain further, I had tried this method out myself for quite some time and found MANY similarities between my unfinished or repressed thoughts and my dreams. I then told my familiy, close friends, and even some of my classmates, and they all said very much the same thing.

    I think the big thing here is that we, at this point in time, do not have the scientific ability to definitively prove much of anything about the way we think. Even the best neuroscientists express many of their findings with a bit of a theoretic tone. If I had the time to research, I would love to do that. But I feel like sharing this article with the type of minds that seem to congregate on this website has been a good start.

    @Amber Regarding the future events you dream about, I feel that if I were to fit that into this theory here (yes, I’ll acknowledge that it is a theory), then I would wonder if you may spend much of your waking time dwelling on the future. Or possibly being afraid of it? The only reason I mention the fear aspect of it is because humans are fear averse creatures. Fear motivates us to flea from something, whether cognitive or physical. So, if one is afraid of the future, thoughts centered around it may be avoided, repressed, and make their way into dreams. I have heard many people say that their dreams tell them things about what is going to happen in the future. To them, I would say that maybe they are just good at reading what is going on around them on a subconscious level. Because if they were, it is very likely that accurate predictions would surface in their dream.

    @Lauren I think that at this point, it may be very difficult to figure out the meaning of a dream that happened so long ago. When we are children, we are much more likely to be afraid of things that today we may even find humorous. So at that point in your life, it could have been a combination of a cartoon you watched,something your teacher said to you, a scary story that your malicious older cousin told you, and… Etc. The point I’m trying to make with my article here is that if you are looking for them, you may often find many underlying details and themes from your dreams relate directly to unresolved thoughts, memories, or emotions of yours from recent times.

    @Yolanda I think that what you mentioned about Frued is very true, but is not different from the point I was trying to make. An unfulfilled wish is synonymous with a repressed emotion. If I am INCEDIBLY excited to go on a vacation that is coming up in 6 months, it is smart for me to try to repress that excitement for a while until it gets closer to the day of departure. That way, I avoid the pain and anxiety associated with having to wait. Thus, in my dreams, I may live out that repressed excitement by having a dream about say… Going to Disneyland (which I happen to have many times as a child).

    Your method of writing them down is a great way to chronologically measure where your dreams take you. I only meant to expose the idea that the details or themes of those dreams may not necessarily have some far out, esoteric meaning to them. Rather, they may be comparable to oil light or the low fuel light coming on in your car.

    The Real Meaning Behind Your Dreams

  • 2011-07-19 @ 10:29:03

    I really identify with you. I think had you not been on a scholarship, like I was not, maybe you would have decided to stay? For me, I wanted to complete my degree out of respect for my parents giving me the opportunity to do so. But early on in college, I realized that it was NOT the place where real learning went on.

    However, what I did find was an organization at my school, SDSU, of people who thought this way as well. So in a way, I am thankful I stuck it out. I met many people that may contribute to the happiness and success of my future (they are the same thing to me).

    Now that I have graduated, I am going to South Koreato teach English,run a small online business I started, and write a blog that I hope to make as stimulating and helpful to people as this one has been. Maybe one day we can exchange back links over a cafe al tiempo in Alecante.

    Vive.

    The Real Meaning Behind Your Dreams

  • 2011-07-02 @ 22:21:05

    This is a great piece of life advice. Interestingly enough, I actually just started reading The Alchemist again a few days ago and have been thinking about how my attitude in situations can completely reform the way I see that situation, and therefore how react to it. One very practical way I have tried to do what you mention here is immediately say “Yessssss!” as soon as something bad happens. It helps a lot!

    Great blog!

    How to Be A Modern Alchemist

  • 2011-06-29 @ 18:03:03

    We humans are cyclical beings. We live and die, wake up and go to sleep, eat and take a shit, say hello and goodbye, etc. We constantly look for patterns and think in terms of “starts and finishes.” So, when confronted with the concept that our life has begun, and therefore must end, a search for meaning must ensue.

    But meaning is completely subjective. How can you tell me what blue looks like to you? We merely have come to a consensus that it looks something like the header and footer of this website. Is my blue the same as your blue?

    If we think in terms of cycles, then something becomes boring to us once we personally decide that is no longer has meaning to us.

    Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (great psychologist, thinker, and the most copy pasted name on the internet) has written books about the concept of Flow, which is the complete involvement and enjoyment of a task. It differs from pleasure in that it provides us with lasting appeal, whereas pleasure is short lived. In flow, there are three major components:

    1. Rules: They must be present for Flow to be achieved

    2. A balance between Challenge and Skill: Too hard and people wont even try, too easy and they will give up.

    3. Goals and feedback: We have to know that we are accomplishing something in order to feel enough motivation to continue with that task. And the only way we will know we are accomplishing something is if we get feedback when we do it.

    Life is meant to Flow. Find a purpose that allows for as much intellectual expansion and personal growth as you desire, set goals, receive feedback, and follow the rules of that pursuit (in the case of life: Don’t die and be happy)

    The Human Capacity for Boredom & Its Implications on Happiness

  • 2011-06-21 @ 09:28:46

    I think the discussion here is great. But what seems to be the most important underlying theme is the definitiveness of this “law.” In all other contexts, the word “law” means something that is definite and unchanging. But the LOA is different, because it is a subjective law.

    It depends on the person believing in it and HOW they believe it.

    If I tell you what the color blue looks like, you may understand what it is I’m talking about, but it could mean something COMPLETELY different to you.

    All I’m saying is that rather than using this thread as a place to argue YOUR definition against someone else’s, why not take the time to step outside of yourself and look back? Why not consider how something like this could fit into your subjective definition of what it means to manifest the things you truly want?

    If thats too difficult, then maybe you should read some of those books… or pay someone to get an “expert” opinion.

    Great read Jordan.
