Hermann Hesse and Carl Jung

Inner Steppe from Alex Schulz on Vimeo.

Hermann Hess and Carl Jung became friends while Hermann was undergoing psychoanalysis under Jung’s assistant J.B. Lang. Lang was the bases of Hesse’s character in DEMIAN Pistorius. Durning this time, Hess’s son was very ill and his wife had been diagnosed as schizophrenic.

“There is no reality except the one contained within us,” Hesse once said. “That is why so many people live such an unreal life. They take the images outside them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself.”

There is even a book about Jung’s and Hesse’s relationship.

P.S. I wrote a paper about Jung’s and Hesse’s relationship decades ago while in college…wish I had it now.

This is great, it shows really how we can all talk with each other.. with technology.

Matisyahu Performs ‘One Day’ With Boy Battling Cancer (VIDEO)

When Luke Weber joined Matisyahu on stage to sing “One Day” — a song that calls for hope — he brought the lyrics to life.

Luke is fighting cancer and for a chance at childhood. Chai Lifeline, an organization that offers programs and financial support to children battling life-threatening diseases, helped Luke in his fight when it made one of his biggest dreams come true.

The organization arranged for Luke to join Matisyahu on stage at the Tarrytown Music Hall in New York on Thursday to sing one of the star’s biggest hits, “One Day.”

“Sometimes in my tears I drown/but I never let it get me down,” Luke sang to a cheering audience. “So when negativity surrounds/I know some day it’ll all turn around.”

Luke’s parents credit Chai Lifeline with giving their son a chance to feel like a regular kid.

“They continue to amaze me,” Luke’s mom, Eliza, told Jewishmom.com. “It is because of them that Luke is not a victim of cancer. He is the happiest, most cup-half-full kid we know.”

from huffington post

sometimes I lay
under the moon
and thank God I’m breathing
then I pray
don’t take me soon
cause I am here for a reason
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it’ll all turn around
because
all my life I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been praying for
for the people to say
that we don’t wanna fight no more
there’ll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day x6
it’s not about
win or lose cause
we all lose
when they feed on the souls of the innocent
blood drenched pavement
keep on moving though the waters stay raging
in this maze you can lose your way (your way)
it might drive you crazy but don’t let it faze you no way (no way)
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it’ll all turn around
because
all my life I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been praying for
for the people to say
that we don’t wanna fight no more
there’ll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day x6
one day this all will change
treat people the same
stop with the violence
down with the hate
one day we’ll all be free
and proud to be
under the same sun
singing songs of freedom like
one day x4
all my life I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been praying for
for the people to say
that we don’t wanna fight no more
there’ll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day x6
ooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Tyrone Hayes + Penelope Jagessar Chaffer: The toxic baby?

Hormones, plastic, chemicals, birth defects…. this should make you mad….

Filmmaker Penelope Jagessar Chaffer was curious about the chemicals she was exposed to while pregnant: Could they affect her unborn child? So she asked scientist Tyrone Hayes to brief her on one he studied closely: atrazine, a herbicide used on corn. (Hayes, an expert on amphibians, is a critic of atrazine, which displays a disturbing effect on frog development.) Onstage together at TEDWomen, Hayes and Chaffer tell their story.

At the University of California, Berkeley, and in ponds around the world, professor Tyrone Hayes studies frogs and other amphibians. He’s become an active critic of the farm chemical atrazine, which he’s found to interfere with the development of amphibians’ endocrine systems. Hayes is the subject of the chidren’s book The Frog Scientist, and lectures frequently. His work was recently covered in Mother Jones.

Penelope Jagessar Chaffer is the director and producer of the documentary/surrealist film Toxic Baby. She works to bring to light the issue of environmental chemical pollution and its effect on babies and children.
Her first British Academy Award Nomination came for her BBC4 debut, Me and My Dad, which followed her on a trip to Trinidad as she confronted her father, a magistrate who was sent to prison for bribery and corruption. After working on 2005’sShakespeare’s Stories for the BBC, for which she received a BAFTA nomination, Chaffer was inspired to begin her research on Toxic Baby.

Kara DeFrias “I Can See Stars: Defying the Odds”

<p></p>

“Did you know Space Shuttle Atlantis had only a 30% chance of taking off this past summer? But it did. In glorious fashion, set beautifully against the Florida sky and against seemingly insurmountable odds, it did, only 3.1 miles away from where I was standing. No matter what life throws at you, whatever challenge comes your way, don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do something, or that you only have a slim chance of reaching your goals. Whether it’s a 30% chance of getting into college, getting that job, or beating cancer: remember Atlantis.”
