Be Inspired!

As a curator of information presented here, along with being author of some, I try to take a position of what might be helpful, or in some instances what I know from my own experience what works. These are usually not definitively seen as "the solution" but rather one that I recognize as helpful, valuable and when possible based on experience, science or research. More importantly, the application of which will lead to more love in. We are open to suggestions and helpful links or references to either supporting material or refuting material. Consider this an experiment in development or as a work in progress. What we don't know will always trump what we do know so we try to leave room for what "might be" as well as for "what is".

You may have missed some helpful information. After 3 years of working on this project, we are now ready to create a list of people who would like to receive 4 emails per month (1 x week) with a summary of articles, postings, videos, and resources with links that are put up each week on the website and blog. Share in the love.

Empty Hands is a 501c-3 Non-Profit, which is dedicated to serving and gifting communities across the world - a positive and inspiring message through its music & events, as well as its grassroots work with slum communities in india, providing opportunity and empowerment to our underprivileged children - through the arts. Nimo chose the title 'Empty Hands', because of the profound wisdom we all can gain when we understand this deeper truth: that we arrive on this planet empty handed and we will all soon leave empty handed. Nimo has reconnected to his roots of music and is offering this gift of love, peace and oneness through his songs: an offering he calls "Empty Hands Music".

Empty Hands Music's mission: is to spread seeds of goodness in the world through selfless service, music, and love. All of Empty Hands Music's offerings are gifts to the world.

From an Ivy League education to Wall street to fame and fortune as a MTV Rap star, at some point along Nimo's journey he realized that we was walking a path of suffering and that the only path to light was through selfless service to others and his own internal purification. For the past 10 years Nimo has been serving and working with the underprivileged communities in the Gandhi Ashram in India. “We arrive on to this planet empty handed. We will all soon leave empty handed. So then, how do we want to spend the time in between?”

The Heartmath Institute

We are at the dawn of recognizing Love as the new transformational intelligence—Doc Childre, founder of The HeartMath Institute.

Adding heart translates into increased care and genuine connection with others and harmonizes the resistance between our own mind and heart. Adding heart increases the love flowing through our system, which can play a large part in solving the collective challenges of these transitional times. Science based evidential research is at its core. Learn More →

The Fetzer Institute

John E. Fetzer was a true visionary. His keen interest in science led him to fund top level research at Stanford, Duke and Princeton. He predicted a time when people would seek enlightened change through the infusion of science and spirituality, so he spent his life studying the connection between the two.

He was an advisor to two presidents, one of the 400 wealthiest individuals in America, a pioneer in the broadcast industry and owner of the World Series Detroit Tigers.

Underneath all of his worldly achievements, was a deep spiritual quest and constant search for truth that is truly inspirational.

The interests that shaped John Fetzer’s life are the seedbed for the questions that define the work of the Fetzer Institute: How can the secular and sacred elements of life be better integrated? How can the insights of science and the power of technological innovation be utilized to explore the capacities of the mind and spirit? How can the wisdom and insight gained through inner exploration be used to better our individual and collective wellbeing? And how can the entrepreneurial spirit and financial resources gained from the American business sector be used in the service of creating a better world? Learn More →

John Cleese (Monty Python) & Ed Kelly discuss survival of consciousness beyond death

University of Virginia Division of Perceptual Studies

Founded in 1967 by Dr. Ian Stevenson, the Division of Perceptual Studies (DOPS) is a highly productive university-based research group devoted to the investigation of phenomena that challenge mainstream scientific paradigms regarding the nature of the mind/brain relationship. Researchers at DOPS are particularly interested in studying phenomena related to consciousness functioning beyond the confines of the physical body, and phenomena that suggest continuation of consciousness after physical death.

DOPS researchers objectively document and rigorously analyze empirical data collected regarding human experiences which suggest that mind and brain may be distinct and separable, and that consciousness may persist in detectable ways beyond bodily death.

It is our hope that other scientists will join us in addressing the serious study of the nature of consciousness and its interaction with the physical world. Learn More →

Be a Neighbor

All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we're giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That's one of the things that connects us as neighbors--in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver. —Fred Rogers Learn More →


Want to Write, Learn to Write or Write a Book?

Many people want to write a book. Many people who want to write a book never do. I was one of those. I even told people I was writing a book. I just didn't tell them it was only true in my mind. It occurred to me that there might be others in the same situation. So here is my share. I now love writing. And it inspires me to even greater heights. It has given me the confidence to do other things as well. The Write Practice is a great place to start. Learn More →
