Everything is Connected

Here is a TED talk (17 minute) which explains the fundamental spiritual message of all major religions, that “Everything is Connected”, on a Scientific basis and demonstrates the Truth in that statement.
The presentation is very well put together and the closing appeal by the speaker is something I wish everyone takes to heart and does not forget. It is bound to impact ones beliefs about self and how one behaves.

One thought on “Everything is Connected

  1. What a coincidence? “Thought for the Day” by Sri Easwaran today happens to quote the message of Bhagavad Gita about our connected self!

    JANUARY 24

    They live in wisdom who see themselves in all and all in them, who have renounced every selfish desire and sense craving tormenting the heart.

    – BHAGAVAD GITA

    The Gita’s hypothesis is that it is possible, by mastering the thinking process, to leave behind unwanted habits and negative thoughts. To accomplish this, the Gita outlines a daily course of training in which we acquire conscious control of our attention, strengthening our will at such a deep level of the unconscious that no compulsive desire or addiction can sweep us away. What is the predicted result? When your will is linked to your intellect at the very depths of your personality, you discover yourself as you really are – secure, wise, compassionate, and intimately connected with all of life.

    The Thought for the Day is today’s entry from Eknath Easwaran’s Words to Live By.
