Dan Eldon| A Good Life Is The Best Journey

It’s the middle of the night, and I can’t sleep.  The piece I’m writing tomorrow on Dan Eldon is thrashing around in my consciousness … or my dream state actually … waking me up.

Eldon’s beautiful book of collages is entitled “Life Is The Journey”. It is in print again … my third copy is on the way.

I don’t fight these unconscious “trips” when they begin … whatever the time of day. I concede the fact that I’m going somewhere quite powerful, without much choice in the matter.

Cultural Creatives are attuned to art. In the 16 Myers Briggs personality types, I’m an ENFP, the most adventurous and creative.

My life deck is stacked against me on these kinds of subjects, so I’ve donned the plaid tam, and just accepted reality at 2am.

I don’t spend much time considering topics like Mercury being in retrograde or other irrational forces. I accept the idea that the universe speaks to us in unusual ways, but I don’t try to define matters beyond that. I’ve had my share of inexplicable moments — the old Ashanti Bazaar store in New York — and also the Dapper Museum in Paris.

Life Is Better With A Cuppa Tea

Anne is a double-espresso kind of gal, but I drink herbal tea late at night.

Pouring the boiling water into a simple but elegant white mug that says “Love Deeply”, I chasticized myself: “Writing the Dan Eldon piece is a big priority for you Anne. You have such a connected relationship to his collages, his values, his work and his art. Don’t be worrying about the 27 other projects you’re doing right now, trying to turn the massive ship that is your life in a new direction, based on business and writing. Focus on Eldon.”

J'Adore: Next Einstein

Tedsters everywhere are greeting Next, an offshoot of TED Talks.

Next Einstein was created in response to the TED Prize wish of Neil Turok. At this past TED, he wished for us to help unlock and nurture scientific talent across Africa, so that within our lifetimes we are celebrating an African Einstein.

Check out YouTube’s Next Einstein channel. Included here is Neil Turok’s Ted Talk, one that launched the Next Einstein initiative. Addressing his “whiteness”, Turok acknowledges the contradictory nature of his own life … shuttling between Cambridge and Africa, balancing his dual passions for mathematics and his message that Africans must fix Africa, with our help and support, of course.

Imagine: John Lennon, Pangea Day, and a Council of Compassion

Do Unto Others

Back to this business of The Golden Rule.  I awoke this morning, drenched in my senses, aroused in every aspect, smelling the unusually fragrant lilacs next to my bed. I needed to see TED, thirsty for the best minds to help me express my thoughts today.

Photo via Flickr’s —geisha—I didn’t go to TED for “confession” over recalling my peony-stealing caper but rather in a search for “rebirth”, a query that brought me to former nun Karen Armstrong, who is now “one of the most provocative, original thinkers on the role of religion in the modern world.”

Karen Armstrong, formerly tagged “the runaway nun”,  is the author of the international best seller, The History of God. She believes that human-heartness defines the crucial core of religious principles. Authentic justice lies in compassion, perhaps even above the laws that govern us.

The author reminds us that our contemporary definition of belief as a set of unyielding principles grounded in rigid, rational argument is a recent religious enthusiasm.

According to Armstrong, the word belief originally mean to love, to prize, to hold dear. She argues that religious doctrines are only valid as a call to action … and this calling is not concerned with killing, but with compassion. Belief is not about retribution.

Global Awakening

Armstrong now seeks a new Council of Compassion that rejects the high jacking of the world’s major religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, by those who prefer to be right, rather than compassionate.

J'adore: Queen Rania's 'Send Me Your Stereotypes'

Also, this YouTube message from Jordan’s Queen Rania begins a new dialogue about the Arab world. I went looking for an environmental video, but offer you this one instead. It’s called “Send Me Your Stereotypes”.

I admit to being nervous as hell about terrorism — remember I live at the World Trade Center site, as a conscious act — but we will follow her dialogue here at Anne of Carversville.
