To inaugurate the Nobull Peace Prize Project I have decided to select six recipients. The first two are notable figures in Service Space, Nipun Mehta and Pavi Mehta. All the members of Service Space deserve my appreciation but I chose those two because I love how they represent the movement whose mission statement is simple.
Change Yourself, Change the World
We believe in the inherent generosity of others and aim to ignite that spirit of service. Through our small collective acts, we hope to transform ourselves and the world.
A brief history of Service Space is here…
Pavi Mehta is a marvelous storyteller. She is the co-editor of the DailyGood, the co-founder of Karma Kitchen and more, but to me she is weaves illuminating tapestries of words.
Nipun and Pavi are uplifting the body of humanity by creating organizations of goodness. Thank you!
Next I’ve chosen two people whose discoveries have enhanced my spiritual development by expanding my understanding of the interaction of the physical world and the spiritual. These are wonderful examples of real truth seekers, personifications of the value of science. Although no one else may see the connection, I see the work of these two scientists to be complementary in the context of creating a world of Love.
Barbara L. Fredrickson, PH.D works in the fields of emotions science and relationship science. A synthesis of the two led her to study Love. In this regard she is an academic researcher in the classic objective sense. Her discoveries had personal application and the enlightenment of experience allowed her to give a new definition to the meaning of Love as a subjective scientist. There’s no substitute for personal experience. One of the tremendous values of her work that I see is to provide an avenue for those caught up in their heads to learn the reality of Love in a universal context.
Her latest book, “Love 2.0 ~ How Our Supreme Emotion Affects Everything We Feel, Think, Do and Become” will be of value to anyone interested in building a world of Love. It happens from person to person.
You can learn more about Barbara’s work at her web site that provides links to her latest TEDx Talk, Amazon etc. Do watch her TED Talks!
I’ve written a book review here…
Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor’s forced discovery and the illuminating comprehension on the nature of brain anatomy and function were tremendously valuable to me. She was a 37-year-old Harvard-trained neuroanatomist when she suffered a rare form of a stroke. Her training allowed her a remarkable opportunity to observe the deterioration she suffered. A near miraculous recovery to complete health left her with a profound understanding of how the brain works. The experience and wisdom she gained thereby was chronicled in her book, “My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey.”
Please visit her web site to find out more about her remarkable story and find a link to purchase her book…
Be sure to watch her original TED Talk, “Jill Bolte Taylor’s Stroke of Insight.” It is inspiring!
Dr. Jill ends her talk with this memorable line… “I believe that the more time we spend choosing to run the deep inner peace circuitry of our right hemispheres, the more peace we will project into the world and the more peaceful our planet will be. And I find that an idea worth spreading.”
I’ve chosen Niphun Mehta and Pavi Mehta because to me they are creating a world of love in the body of humanity. Doctors Barbara and Jill seem to me to exemplify that creative process in the realm of the mind. The last two I wish to thank deal with the spirit.
One of the more cosmic aspects of the construction of this new world is a spiritual awakening. An area of importance to all of humanity is the bridge of communication between persons of greater divinity who are acting as teachers and guides and people here on earth who are receiving and sharing these messages. In short the ‘veil’ is thinning between the visible realm and spiritual, so called simply because it is a higher vibration than we can perceive with material senses.
Among all those who are doing this work my favorite is a small group of people anchored by George and Sandra Barnard. The 11:11 Progress Group is about half a dozen people who have learned to achieve inner silence and become receptive to messages from various celestial personalities. While there are quite a number of people who say they are doing similar ‘channeling’, the messages from this small group are the ones that strike my ‘truth-sense’ most powerfully. I’ve gained a huge amount of spiritual uplift from their work.
George’s experiences are recounted three books that I found to be compelling, “The Search for 11:11,” “In the Service of 11:11” and “The Anatomy of the Halfway Realm” (with a fourth book in the works).
However the work that affects my spiritual life on a daily basis are the Progress Group Messages…
You can sign up to receive a new message each weekday morning by using this form…
Sandy is not only George’s partner in the 11:11 Progress Group’s work but specifically she is the anchor around whom a forum exists. Millions of people around the world are seeing 11:11 on clocks and in daily references at frequency that is less than chance might have it. You can learn about the phenomena on their forum.
I’d like to thank these six people for their inspiring work. I’m grateful because I’ve learned so much from each of them.
