What does it mean? 

Is it the end or the beginning?  Are you being punished or rewarded?

What are you going to to? 

Are you going to give up or move forward?

Certainty, uncertainty, feeling special, connection/love, needs of the spirit, grow, contribute beyond ourselves

We Stopped Dreaming

Neil deGrasse Tyson - We Stopped Dreaming (Episode 1)

We Stopped Dreaming (Episode 2) - A New Perspective

You know you find a good video when it is 11pm and you’re half asleep and within the first minute you are hooked.  You aren’t hooked because it is a “viral video” but because you realize what they are explaining in the video makes some sense and is done with true passion.  I can listen to people explain new concepts to me with passion all day long.  The second video is my favorite if you don’t have time to watch both.

People don’t have passion like this any more.  People don’t get excited for new things like we did.  Maybe we aren’t dreaming big enough.  Don’t stop dreaming.  Love this.
