Phenomenal Story of What Goes Around Comes Around

A friend sent me an amazing story of karma coming full circle. It sounded too good, so I did some due diligence. Turns out this amazing story is true.

In 1892 at Stanford University, an 18-year-old student was struggling to pay his fees. He was an orphan, and not knowing where to turn for money, he came up with a bright idea. He and a friend decided to host a musical concert on campus to raise money for their education.

END GAME - Stanford Scientist Estimates 35 years. What are YOU doing about it?

You know life on earth is precarious, but I bet you have no idea how serious it is. 

Earlier this week, I heard a talk by Dr Elizabeth Hadly, Stanford professor, White House Advisor, a regular speaker at COP summits and advisor to Governor Jerry Brown. Based on her research on history of human behavior, she predicts that human life on earth as we know it, could end by 2050. If anyone makes it past that, they will have the unsought privilege of witnessing 85% of all mammal life on earth disappear by 2100. This is not new information, she says, her research has spanned over 30 years. But it is only in recent years that governments, organizations and individuals are noticing her team "shout from the rooftop" of the dangerous signs. In the Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth 10 years ago, Al Gore gave us a wake up call to the gravity of the situation. This talk was an update on the State-of-the-World.

What is Your Genius?

I’ve been closely watching the twins, my niece and nephew, grow. They are 10 months now. While one is mobile, exploring and stern, the other is laid-back, content and smiling. The divergence in their personalities is quite visible within their first year. It begs the question, what shapes our personality as humans - nature or nurture? Therein lie nested several sets of questions. Today, I’d like to explore the concept of “intelligence”.

The twins were born to the same set of parents, at the same time, ate the same food and exposed to similar “conditions”. But there seems to be a something fundamentally different emerging in their personalities. While some say one is more "intelligent" than the other, I feel each of them is displays a different form of intelligence. I’d argue that all humans are gifted with some form of intelligence. It may not be the type that the school system, the corporate world or society rears, recognizes or rewards.
