The Friday Dose #98

For the majority of people, What the Bleep Do We Know? can be a profoundly informative film, although admittedly a smaller percentage can find it frustratingly confusing. It’s the fear of physics that throws people but there’s no physics in this portion. This plays into this week’s discussion about your Dominant Emotion. Don’t criticize yourself for what it is–that only makes it worse. None are good none are bad. You simply need to know yours and you also need to know that emotion for anyone you love. Here’s how it happens:

If you haven’t seen the film I would highly recommend it. The title above links to their site. They worked hard and deserve to be paid for that work so if you do decide to watch the entire film I hope you do so in a way that benefits the film’s creators.

Know yourself. Don’t criticize yourself. Just know yourself. And no matter what it is you know, you’re worthwhile and so is your life. We’ll work more on that on Monday. For now just enjoy your weekend!

Today we’re going for a trio of videos. We’ll start off with a super-cool bit of scientific creativity that is so amazing it’s remarkable that high school physics teachers can manage to make it seem boring. This rendering of the famous double-slit experiment proves that the world is not as it appears to us. Many people saw it in the film What the Bleep, but most people don’t stop to think about what that experiment really means. It literally changes how we think reality works. It’s stunning. And yet people look at it and go cool, and then they’re done. Crazy. This is some very seriously amazing stuff:

Second we’re going to inspire you. If you read The Friday Dose you know I’m a Shane Koyczan fan, and this piece sounds like it could be a blog here on Relax and Succeed. Sit back and enjoy:

And finally we’ll end on something to get your heart pumping, your face smiling and your feet tapping. This is The Company performing at the Vibe Dance Competition. Their tight synchronization and great use of costuming really brings a vibrancy to their performance. As with the poem by Shane above, crank up your speakers and sit back and enjoy:

Smile, say hello to people, hold doors, give compliments, offer assistance. Make it a great day by really connecting with your fellow man. The enjoyment of your day is much more in your control than you realize.
