I have tried to make a transcript of an awesome video. The transcript is likely flawed but maybe this allows us to hone in on a few of those gold nuggets in the video...

Amazing video:…

A VERY rough (and likely flawed!) transcript...

Albert Einstein famously remarked in conversation with Werner Heisenberg

** he said you know in the West we've built a beautiful ship and in it it has all the comforts. But actually the one thing that it doesn't have is a compass and that is why id doesn't know where it's going.

** This paradox of our times was propounded by the Dalai Lama when he said we have wider freeways but narrower viewpoints we have taller buildings but shorter tempers

** Will smith said that we spend money we have earned on things we don't need to impress people we don't like

** and it's phenomenal how the same technology that brings us close to those are far away takes us far away from the people that are actually close

** Thirty billion WhatsApp messages are sen per day but 48% of people say that they feel lonlier in general

** The paradox of our times is that we have more degrees but less sense

** more knowledge but less judgment

** more experts but less solutions

** It was Martin Luther King said the irony of our times is that we have guided missiles but misguided men

** Have you ever found it perplexing that we beam all the way to the moon and back
but we struggle to start a conversation across the road or across the train

** It's amazing that Bill Gates was known as the top earner in 2015 with a wealth of 79.2 billion but one in four CEO's claimed to be struggling from depression

** And do we actually thrive off this paradox isn't it that this paradox actually makes the media interesting is what makes journalism interesting, is what makes politics interesting, is what makes television interesting

** Is this paradox actually what we feed off of what we live off and what we talk about and discuss in our circles

** Doesn't it seem that we've tried to clean the air but polluted our soul

** We've split the atom but not our prejudice

** We're aiming for higher incomes but we have lower morals

** So I'm hearing you ask how do you bring a change how do we dissect this paradox that exists in our lives

** And it starts by each of us pressing PAUSE, pressing RESET and then pressing PLAY again

** Taking a moment to become more conscious,

taking a moment to become more aware

taking a moment to really reflect on the consequence the implications of a misplaced word of an unnecessary argument that we all know we didn't need to have

** Or to speak to someone just slightly differently

in a different tone in a different voice

in a different empathy

with a different perspective

just to really connect with people on a different level

** This thinking out loud started from Albert Einstein I'll track back to him when he actually said that the problems we have today can't be solved with the same thinking we used when we once created them

** So actually we need to research alternative teachings

** We need to deep down dig into those ancient books of wisdom

** We need to go back to understanding if there's anything written in those creased pages of time that can actually reveal more knowledge more wisdom of how we can transform our experience of lives today

** Otherwise this paradox means that every step forward we take we're taking three backwards every time
