THE RIPPLE EFFECT

I have used this video before. I believe a refresher is warranted. As I watch the news on TV, what do I see? 

Continued war, mass shootings in schools and public places, false comments from our elected officials, social issues, imperfect systems, dysfunctional agencies that are supposed to work for the public, inefficient and dishonorable systems, corrupt and obstructing politicians (both sides of the isle and worldwide), selfishness, egotism, “me first”, self-centeredness, poverty, poor education, lack of health care, discrimination, violence, abuse of all types, blatant disregard of Mother Earth, greed, profit for selected few, animal abuse and exploitation for profit and entertainment, senseless deaths, unwarranted injustices, human trafficking, loss of morals and values, deception, lies, hypocrisy, manipulation, inequalities, blatant violation of human rights …. and so many others. 

Add your own!

“expanding ripples across water when an object is dropped into it, an effect from an initial state can be followed outwards incrementally”

We seem to forget that for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. 

That may change if we think about the “ripple effect”.

WHAT IS THE RIPPLE EFFECT?

ripple effect is a situation where, like the ever expanding ripples across water when an object is dropped into it, an effect from an initial state can be followed outwards incrementally.

In sociology, it can be observed how social interactions can affect situations not directly related to the initial interaction, and in charitable activities where information can be disseminated and passed from community to community to broaden its impact.

~~The Ripple Effect: The Heartbeat to Eternity~~

~Uploaded on Dec 11, 2007~

Concept
Drop a pebble in a still pond
and watch the ripple travel out in an ever expanding ring
The Ripple Effect is rooted in the belief that all we are all connected by our shared Humanity.

Description of Physics
Drop a pebble in a still pond and watch the ripple travel out in an ever expanding ring.
Two well known Principles of Physics are Wave Theory and Entrainment.
Wave Theory teaches us that a wave will continue to travel out, never changing its initial shape or frequency.
It also teaches us that when two waves intersect each other, the height of the effect is the sum of the heights of the two individual waves.
Entrainment is the tendency for two vibrating bodies to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony.

The Goal
The Goal of Humanity Healing™ is to make a lasting difference for positive change by supporting Humanitarian efforts that create sustainable solutions for the World’s problems.
We believe that through a multifaceted approach of organizing Good Works, Education
and Promoting Spiritual growth; we can bring about mutual respect and understanding.
We can each send out Ripples of Blessings, Ripples of Social Justice, Ripples of Goodness Ripples of Peace and Ripples of Loving-Kindness past all barriers and across all borders.

The Pond is the World,
Your Heart is the Pebble,
Drop a pebble in a still pond and watch the ripple travel out in an ever expanding ring
with every Heartbeat.

Alan Watts …. The Solution of the Problem of Life!!


~~June 4, 2014~~

Alan Wilson Watts (January 6, 1915 — November 16, 1973) was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and popularizer of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience.

He wrote more than 25 books and numerous articles on subjects such as personal identity, the true nature of reality, higher consciousness, meaning of life, concepts and images of God and the non-material pursuit of happiness. In his books he relates his experience to scientific knowledge and to the teachings of Eastern and Western religion, spirituality and philosophy.

In 1957 when 42, Watts published one of his best known books, The Way of Zen, which focused on philosophical explication and history. Besides drawing on the lifestyle and philosophical background of Zen, in India and China, Watts introduced ideas drawn from general semantics (directly from the writings of Alfred Korzybski and also from Norbert Wiener’s early work on cybernetics, which had recently been published). Watts offered analogies from cybernetic principles possibly applicable to the Zen life. The book sold well, eventually becoming a modern classic, and helped widen his lecture circuit.

In his mature work, he presents himself as “Zennist” in spirit as he wrote in his last book, Tao: The Watercourse Way. Child rearing, the arts, cuisine, education, law and freedom, architecture, sexuality, and the uses and abuses of technology were all of great interest to him.

In looking at social issues he was quite concerned with the necessity for international peace, for tolerance and understanding among disparate cultures. He also came to feel acutely conscious of a growing ecological predicament; as one instance, in the early 1960s he wrote: “Can any melting or burning imaginable get rid of these ever-rising mountains of ruin — especially when the things we make and build are beginning to look more and more like rubbish even before they are thrown away?”

Watts felt that absolute morality had nothing to do with the fundamental realization of one’s deep spiritual identity. He advocated social rather than personal ethics. In his writings, Watts was increasingly concerned with ethics applied to relations between humanity and the natural environment and between governments and citizens. He wrote out of an appreciation of a racially and culturally diverse social landscape.

Since the inception of alanwattspodcasts.com by his son Mark Watts, and the success of internet based user-generated videos, many of Alan’s audio contents have been made into videos.

As part of his growing popularity, Matt Stone and Trey Parker—creators of the animated series South Park—have also contributed a video tribute by animating some of his lectures. This has spawned a culture of many hundreds of user animated videos all around the net.

In October 1973, Watts returned from an exhausting European lecture tour. He died of heart failure in his sleep at his home on Mt. Tamalpais the following month, at the age of 58.
