Power to choose Who we Are: Talk of a Lifetime

One of the best talk I have even seen, I even took down notes while watching it. Excerpt from TED:
"Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story of recovery and awareness -- of how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another."

We are energy beings connected through the consciousness of our right hemisphere in the brain as one human family. And our left hemisphere thinks in language and connects our internal world to the external world.

WE HAVE the power to choose - WHO WE ARE

Another interesting talk about religion and its true meaning and how we have changed it for our greedy means.
Excerpt: "Karen Armstrong talks about how the Abrahamic religions -- Islam, Judaism, Christianity -- have been diverted from the moral purpose they share to foster compassion. But Armstrong has seen a yearning to change this fact. People want to be religious, she says; we should act to help make religion a force for harmony. She asks the TED community to help her build a Charter for Compassion -- to help restore the Golden Rule as the central global religious doctrine."
