I thought since I am doing a series of Mandala Mondays, it might be nice to do some TED Talks Thursdays. For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery of them from www.ted.com:
TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
In today’s post: “At his Stanford University commencement speech, Steve Jobs, CEO and co-founder of Apple and Pixar, urges us to pursue our dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks — including death itself.” www.ted.com.
You never know what value something has except in hindsight, and maybe not even then. Gifts from the Universe sometimes come in strange packages.
I look forward to your thoughts and comments!
