SOULPANCAKE.

Today, I found two things that amused me enough to share them.  This is just a small entry and I know I haven’t posted much lately.  But it’s been .. a weird couple of days.  So here they are —

The first was a YouTube video by Gary Turk called ‘Look Up.’  I recommend taking a look at it and actually listening to what it has to say.  It might make you rethink a few things that you do on a regular basis.

The second is a book called ‘Soulpancake’ by Rainn Wilson (yes, the guy from ‘The Office’).  It’s an incredibly thought-provoking book and I found a page that somewhat plays off of the YouTube video I linked above.  The page I found states the following :

Life can be an intense, chaotic, and confusing experience that we race through with blinders on.  Let’s pause for a moment and take it all in.  “When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another — and ourselves.” — Jack Kornfield.

  1. Step one — Go to a crowded public place.
  2. Step two — Put on your headphones.  Hit ‘play.’
  3. Step three — Sit back, watch the world — and the souls you share it with — go by.

I’ve spent the day at Barnes & Noble doing exactly that.  Just listening to music and watching people go through their lives.  It’s been interesting, to say the least.  And nice.
