WELCOME TO THE MAD TO LIVE

A curation of collaborations, essays, pathways, and experiences for those who are hellbent on making sure the following is part of their lives, the lives of others, and the lives of generations to come:

  • Progress – An idea whose time has come has the power to diminish an idea whose time has gone.
  • Inner Peace – Somewhere within us all, there does exist a supreme self who is eternally at peace.
  • Connection – John Lennon said, “A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”
  • Wisdom – Wisdom unshared shrinks our world. Wisdom shared expands our existence.

The Roar Experiment

Just how loud can you get? What would it feel like to scream at the top of your lungs into some kind of vast nothingness? Not a yell. Not a raised voice. For 60 seconds, let’s see what you have inside you – let out the loudest, craziest scream, roar, howl, whatever you want as long as its a loud sound coming out of your body. What do you think it will feel like? Only one way to find out.

The Pilgrimage Experiment

It is said that “loneliness is the poverty of self, and solitude is the richness of self.” Oscar Wild said, “It is healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not defined by another person.” The pilgrimage challenge is rooted in what we discovery ourselves along our paths. Pick a starting point (your front door, a beach, a trailhead) and walk from sunrise to sunset in any direction.

Eye Gaze Experiment

When is the last time you looked at someone in the eye and held your gaze? For 1 minute? 3 minutes? 5 minutes? Believe it or not, it’s incredibly humbling, warming, triggering, connecting, and soothing. To truly see someone, and to let yourself be seen, is one of the gifts of being a human being.

LOVE BEYOND WORDS

We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each others’ happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.

We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery ,we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in man; cries out for universal brotherhood; for the unity of us all.

Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age a security.

Let us fight for a world of reason.
