Definition: Automatic Writing, Psychography, or Spiritual Writing

Interesting concept, to say the least. I’m counting these three synonyms, effectively, to be one. Personally, I prefer automatic writing because spiritual writing, to me, describes a hyper-conscious way to write rather than subconscious way to write.

John Francis’ Walk


John Francis, Environmentalist

John Francis, Environmentalist

I’ve seen about 100 videos from now. Most of them have been great or better, but every now andĀ  then, something stunning comes along that makes the rest seem average, even, dare I say. No offense intended to the many great speakers at TED, but you know, something always resonates more with each one of us.

In my case, it was John Francis‘ talk. If you want to know what my idea is of a true storyteller, right now, I’d point you to John’s talk below and ask you to listen. What’s even better, the story he tells is that of an incredible journey he took in his life where he walked around for 17 years without saying a word deliberately, got a Bachelor in Environmental Studies, Masters (MA) in Environmental Science and PhD in Land Resources and saved the environment in many ways but most notably, with respect to spilled oil. The stories and lessons he tells are truly genuine, human and inspiring… coming full circle, full of aha moments and completely interwoven. Very spiritually empowering, too!

But why am I wasting your time? Please, have a listen by clicking on the video below. Then, if you like it, share it with a friend, two or those on your Facebook or something (social bookmarking icon bar at the top). Let’s give this YouTube video a LOT more than just 25,000 views it only currently has. This needs to go viral rather than a lot of that trash going around that’s like flu and AIDS viruses.

Least Likely To Facebook Tagging Meme

After creating my version of the next generation of pictorial Facebook tagging meme in the Most Likely to version,the logical progression was a Least Likely To version below so this is original at the time of posting as far as I know it. While one can use thisĀ  poster in a pessimistic way towards tagging people for the future, to identify friends who would be least likely to do something, I meant it as a reflective exercise with the instructions being to tag friends who were least like to do something.

This is an exercise to acknowledge how people change in big ways we don’t expect, but that we should afford them the chance to in life, rather than blocking them in by removing their potential. I’m generally a positive kind of guy, though with a bit of a wicked sense of humour, at times, as you can see by some of my choices in the poster below. As a result, despite using the same poster as the Most Likely to version, I changed the picture text to be more general in some circumstances. We may dream or lift others to the post of president, for example, but in reality, just being a leader applies to far more of us than president, no matter what kind of president you want to consider.

I’m too tired to put links to all these people but you can Google them, and maybe guess why I’ve put labeled each as such.
