To be our animated best selves requires us to be in a graceful electro-chemical choreography. All of our actions, thoughts, desires, emotions and behaviors are physiologically the result of networked neural activity in the brain. One neuron’s “voice” alone does not result in a smile, a hug, or a memory; however that one neuron’s voice singing in conjunction with a choir of other voices becomes the collective representation of that feeling of love, that look of contentment, or that handshake. The inner and outer worlds mirror each other in a beautiful micro-macro union. With the unified efforts of those around us we have the opportunity to create communities of power, strength, integrity, generosity, empathy, and growth.
Our thoughts take a village of neurons, our life’s sustainability takes a village of friends, and our earth’s future takes a village of cultures.[embedplusvideo height=”450″ width=”450″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/1jgMwKN” standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/vyNkAuX29OU?fs=1″ vars=”ytid=vyNkAuX29OU&width=450&height=450&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=0&autoplay=0&react=0&chapters=¬es=” id=”ep4112″ /]
