In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrators James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack. A spellbinding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit and timeless message, I Met the Walrus was nominated for the 2008 Academy Award for Animated Short and won the 2009 Emmy for ‘New Approaches’ (making it the first film to win an Emmy on behalf of the internet).
This project was created with the same spirit that america was founded on. Our intentions are to connect everyone in america through the lens of this camera and social networking sites. We can’t do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know. As we travel around america looking for people and places to shoot you will be able to keep track of where we are going and help us decide where we go next. Join us in our journey by liking our facebook to get yourself photographed by us.

This is a non-commercial attempt to highlight the fact that world leaders, irresponsible corporates and mindless ‘consumers’ are combining to destroy life on earth. It is dedicated to all who died fighting for the planet and those whose lives are on the line today. The cut was put together by Vivek Chauhan, a young film maker, together with naturalists working with the Sanctuary Asia network (www.sanctuaryasia.com).
Drawing from some of the most pivotal points in his life, Steve Jobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, urged graduates to pursue their dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks — including death itself — at the university’s 114th Commencement on June 12, 2005.
text of speech: ‘You’ve got to find what you love,’ Jobs says
I found this beautiful video on Gwen Bell’s site last night. I’ve only briefly skimmed through a few pages on her site, though from what I’ve seen, Gwen’s perspective resonates a lot with how I see the world. Check out her place at gwenbell.com
What you’re feeling is what you attract (and the lens you see the world through). Yesterday afternoon, a couple hours before sunset, I felt connected to the trees, plants, and nature in the park I discovered when I went for a drive a little north of here [photos will be added later and found under yesterday's date]. I am grateful for the opportunity to go explore in nature and spend lots of time there growing my awareness, especially when I get my truck camper in the next couple weeks. Do whatever it takes to continue to live your dream and experience your passion.
This Earth Hour 2012: 8.30pm, Saturday 31 March, celebrate your action for the planet with the people of world by switching off your lights for an hour, then go beyond the hour.
From its inception as a single-city initiative — Sydney, Australia – in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into a global symbol of hope and movement for change. Earth Hour 2011 created history as the world’s largest ever voluntary action with people, businesses and governments in 135 countries across every continent coming together to celebrate an unambiguous commitment to the one thing that unites us all — the planet.
Earth Hour 2011 embraced 5,251 cities and towns in 135 countries and territories and reached an estimated 1.8 billion people worldwide. Our new video, backed by acclaimed Icelandic rock band Sigur Rós, showcases the passion of this year’s Earth Hour participants from all corners of the globe, celebrating the planet and taking action Beyond the Hour.

An originally profound interview with Sri Bhagavan.
Experiencing Alone Remains – Sri Bhagavan
“Therefore, what is there is merely the experience, the experiencer is gone. There is merely seeing, the seer is gone. There is merely the thought, the thinker is gone. There is merely what is there, we are gone. And with that existential suffering goes away. Even if this should happens only for 5 minutes, you have such a powerful insight that you do not exist.”
~ Sri Bhagavan
Life is a GAME!!! ~~ You create your own MIRACLES! – Sri Bhagwan explains HOW (with subtitles)
Sri Bhagwan Explains the purpose of the WHOLE CREATION.. How life is a GAME & about Attachment etc…
The Futility of All Effort on the Spiritual Path – Sri Bhagavan
“Man cannot make it on his own; it has to be given to him.” ~ Sri Bhagavan
On another occasion, Sri Bhagavan gave the following answer:
”If you would realize that there is nothing you could do about it, that is the beginning of love. In spirituality, the moment you realize there is nothing you could do about it, that is the beginning of all spiritual growth. As long as you keep trying you will never ever get there because that trying is the problem.
That trying is the thing which takes you away from where you want to be. You have to realize the futility of all effort in the inner world. All effort on the spiritual path is futile. If you could realize that, it could hit you like a ton of bricks and then all effort ceases. The moment effort is gone, there is love, and there is peace. But as long as you keep struggling you keep putting in some effort you will move further away.
If you want to discover love and you put in some effort, you will move further away from love. If you want peace and you put in some effort, you would move further away from peace because that very effort is the disturbance, the noise. You have to realize that futility of effort.”

THE REALITY OF THE SELF is ineffable—beyond the limitations of mental activity, words, and concepts. The gift of the sage, however, is to approximate a description of the ineffable with a profound elegance and clarity that affords the spiritual student a glimpse of Ultimate Reality.

Process of Dying and Moksha (liberation upon death) – Sri Bhagavan
If you ask for liberation (moksha), the beauty is that no matter what has happened in your life, the Light cannot say “no”!
~ Sri Bhagavan
View also The Phases of Life: youtu.be/Ry_i2lWkolU
Here are a few more voices on the same subject:
Dying is easy,
believe me, it is like
Vast becomes the space . . .
in shorelessly drifting felicity
you give yourself back
to the Primal Ocean.
Nobody dies, death means finished; for example, a drop of water when it evaporates has become infinite. There is no death for anything, everything finishes to become infinite.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
At death there is only liberation. It’s just more chic to see liberation while you’re alive.
~ Max Furlaud
Everything that comes from birth undoes itself in liberation.
~ Jen Smith
Here. You are there already. You are in Nirvana. You are like a fish claiming it is thirsty. You are right in the middle of it. Here. Here.
~ Janwillem van de Wetering
Die before you die and be completely dead; then do whatever you want, it’s all good.
~ Wu Men
Empty yourself of everything. Let the mind rest at peace.
The ten thousand things rise and fall while the Self watches their return. They grow and flourish and then return to the source. Returning to the source is stillness, which is the way of nature.
~ Lao Tzu
All things emerge from that silence, and return to that silence. You, too, would eventually merge into that silence from which you emerged in the first instance.
~ Sri Bhagavan
Everything ends in mystery . . .
Sri Bhagwan:- Learn to experience people rather than understanding people
