Must Watch: ‘My Life As A Turkey’

My Life As A Turkey is a beautiful and thought-proking documentary about a man who is given the rare opportunity to raise a group of wild turkeys from hatchlings to adulthood. Hold on! I know this may not sound like the most thrilling of plots, but it goes much deeper than it sounds. The man must spend over a year of his time with the birds with zero human interaction. He learns to communicate with them, understand the meaning of their sounds, and is given a rare glimpse into the consciousness of animals. He's also allowed a inside look at the lives of wild animals as the creatures in his forest, who allow him to get close since he's evidently trusted by the wild turkeys. There is also an absolutely gorgeous insight into the nature of consciousness which I won't spoil with words here. You'll just have to watch it :)

The True Nature of Happiness

Ultimate happiness is a tricky mistress, always hanging just around the corner with promising smiles and wiles. Or at least it seems this way until you realize that... Happiness does not come from a state, but from a change of state. In other words, happiness does not come from the prize, but in the process of attaining that prize. It's a journey, not a destination. Once that end goal is achieved, the satisfaction quickly degrades until we're left looking for the next high. You might be thinking - but WHY? Why does everything so rapidly lose its luster?

8 TEDtalks That Will Change Your Life Forever

1. Juan Enriquez: Will our kids be a different species? Juan asks in this compelling TEDtalk 'can we upgrade ourselves?' His answer immediately puts humankind in perspective. So far, there have been 29 upgrades of humanoids. Multiple versions co-existed. And he convincingly argues that this may be the case today. He wants us to ask ourselves 'are we really all identical?' New evidence suggests we are not and that big differences are coming into our horizon. Juan explores trends of current technology and brain evolution to give us a taste of what may be coming our reality and which big questions we face today...

How To Install a Power-Up Button On Your Body

For the last few months I have been habitually drawing a thin circle on the top of my left hand. The idea was that every time I noticed this circle, I would be reminded/compelled to return to a present, zen state. This worked so well that I decided to have it tattooed on a few nights ago. I've since discovered the immense potential (and fun) of attributing specific 'powers' to parts of your body or objects. Read on to understand what I'm talking about!

How to Learn & Enjoy Life More: The Power of Audio Learning

A few months ago, while living in Australia, I was given an assignment by my boss I was not at all thrilled about: drive 5 hours into the country, meet with a client for 2 hours, and drive back that night. At first, all I could think was "wait, whaaat? You want me to drive 10 hours to meet a guy for 2 hours? Can't I just call him or something?!?" It seemed like a gigantic waste of my time, but he was the boss and I, the employee, so I had to obey. (Note: I have since kissed the corporate life goodbye) That night, I sat at my desk. I decided I had to find a way to make this trip somehow productive, entertaining, and even memorable… There had to be a way…
