I absolutely adore it when I come across someone teaching exactly what I teach, but in a totally different way. I believe that we can’t possibly immerse ourselves in this new way of thinking (we are much more powerful than we’ve been led to believe, and it’s time to remember Who We Really Are) too much, and exposing ourselves to this material in different ways, from different angles, if you will, is incredibly beneficial.
Over the last few weeks, I received emails and Facebook messages from three different people (thank you!!), all pointing me towards the work of Charles Eisenstein. Due to being just a tad on the busy side (aaaaaaargh!), and being a little behind on my reading, I hadn’t gotten a chance to really dig into any of the materials I was sent, but this week I finally got around to watching a TED talk he did (I may be slow, but I check out everything you guys send me). I can see why you guys thought I might like him. 🙂 Holy hell, I was blown away! And, of course, I can’t help but share this inspiring teacher with all of you.
A New Story of the People
In this particular speech, Charles talks about pretty much everything I teach, just from a slightly different perspective. He never mentions the Law of Attraction, but you’ll easily recognize a ton of the principles you’ve seen here. The core of his talk is centered around changing our story (our belief system), from separation and scarcity (more for you is less for me) to one of unity (more for you is more for me).
He talks about “The beautiful world that our hearts know is possible”, what Abraham calls “the Vortex”, and what I generally refer to as “what you TRULY want” and “becoming Who You Really Are”.
My favorite moments
While the whole video is pure awesomeness, I definitely have my favorite moments, where Charles uses particularly exceptional metaphors (you know I love me some metaphors!):
- Charles explains how our beliefs (or stories) have an “immune system”, which protects them from contradictory evidence. Brilliant!
- He talks about preaching to the choir, and why that’s not a bad thing. Love this!!!
- He shares an incredible anecdote of the idea of unity (we are all one) in action. Tears!
This video is only 22 minutes long, so I hope you do yourself the huge favor of watching it. Then, let me know what your favorite moments were in the comments!
