Hunter S. Thompson on Finding Your Purpose and Living a Meaningful Life

Hunter S. Thompson on Finding Your Purpose and Living a Meaningful Life | Empowering Solutions | Scoop.it

Hunter S. Thompson writes a letter to his friend with some of the most profound and thoughtful life advice you will ever come across.

The BioSync Team's insight:

FROM THE ARTICLE:  So if you now number yourself among the disenchanted, then you have no choice but to accept things as they are, or to seriously seek something else. But beware of looking for goals: look for a way of life. Decide how you want to live and then see what you can do to make a living WITHIN that way of life.

It is an interesting letter which comes from a source one might not have considered offering profound insight into a complex question, but Thompson did. It is important to find meaning in our lives.

The Exquisite Healer: Forgiveness – BioSync Research Institute

The Exquisite Healer: Forgiveness – BioSync Research Institute | Empowering Solutions | Scoop.it
The most magical power we have is our ability to forgive. It is the exquisite healer in all of us. Forgiveness is the key to releasing any emotional baggage we have continued to carry, our outdated and outmoded perspectives, and any other attachment that keeps us bound to the past.
The BioSync Team's insight:

FROM THE ARTICLE:  The beauty of forgiveness is that we are the ones who can take charge and make the necessary changes in our lives. From the grandest perspective, there really is no one to blame or even to forgive. We use the act of forgiveness to release our hold upon the limitations and painful memories both personal and societal, that we have become attached to.

Gandhi's 10 Rules for Changing the World, by Henrik Edberg

Gandhi's 10 Rules for Changing the World, by Henrik Edberg | Empowering Solutions | Scoop.it
Change the world; we hear those words thrown around quite frequently, and to some, the notion seems incredulous. However, if we take an inner approach, rather than an outer one, and transform our individual selves into adopting the qualities we wish to see in the world, then the task at hand won't seem as daunting. In the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi, "As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world -- that is the myth of the atomic age -- as in being able to remake ourselves." In this article, the Positivity Blog's, Henrik Edberg, addresses Gandhi's top ten fundamentals for changing the world.

Via Eileen Anglin
The BioSync Team's insight:

Fundamental RULES

  1. Change yourself
  2. You are in control
  3. Forgive and let it go
  4. Without action you aren’t going anywhere
  5. Take care of this moment
  6. Everyone is human
  7. Persist
  8. See the good in people and help them.
  9. Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self
  10. Continue to grow and evolve
