Teaching Empathy; A Matter of Life and Death

Teaching Empathy; A Matter of Life and Death | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

As a parent, as a Connecticut resident and as a human being I can only say that I am heart broken and mad as hell. When did killing another child become an option?

 

Why isn't conflict resolution a class in all our schools?

 

Why is basic life skills education less accessible than junk food? Imagine a world where families and schools got the support and information they need to affect socio emotional learning for everyone. Violence is the end result of many conflicts that might have been resolved constructively if our children had the skill set required. Skills like empathy and effective communication.

=====================

Let's not let Maren's death be in vain.

Let's honor her with a renewed call

for empathy for all of us.

Start Living More As Your Future Self

Start Living More As Your Future Self | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

How often do you think about your future self? It could make all the difference in how happy and successful you are later in life.

You see, one of the biggest factors in making smart decisions is knowing when to pay short-term costs for long-term benefits. It’s about keeping the future in mind.

But for many, especially in our fast-paced world, there is a tendency for “instant gratification.” We want things now, not later – even if that means rejecting a much bigger reward in the future.

If you don’t think about your future self, and only consider your needs and wants in the present moment, then that can often lead to a lot of impulsive decisions that later come back to bite your ass.

True intelligence requires that we act with a long-term mindset. We need to pay attention to how what we do today is going to ultimately influence where we are tomorrow.

10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently

10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

Intuition is challenging to define, despite the huge role it plays in our everyday lives. Steve Jobs called it, for instance, "more powerful than intellect." But however we put it into words, we all, well, intuitively know just what it is. Pretty much everyone has experienced a gut feeling -- that unconscious reasoning that propels us to do something without telling us why or how. But the nature of intuition has long eluded us, and has inspired centuries' worth of research and inquiry in the fields of philosophy and psychology. "I define intuition as the subtle knowing without ever having any idea why you know it," Sophy Burnham, bestselling author of The Art of Intuition, tells The Huffington Post. "It's different from thinking, it's different from logic or analysis ... It's a knowing without knowing."

Our intuition is always there, whether we're aware of it or not. As HuffPost President and Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington puts it in her book Thrive:

Even when we're not at a fork in the road, wondering what to do and trying to hear that inner voice, our intuition is always there, always reading the situation, always trying to steer us the right way. But can we hear it? Are we paying attention? Are we living a life that keeps the pathway to our intuition unblocked? Feeding and nurturing our intuition, and living a life in which we can make use of its wisdom, is one key way to thrive, at work and in life.......

How many of these 10 things do you personally do?

Eli Levine's curator insight, April 23, 2014 3:33 PM

A very interesting piece.  I can't explain to you how it works.  But I do know that it is what guides me along the way and that there's nothing worse than when one's intuition is checked negatively by reality.

 

Personally, I think it has something to do with those microtubules they're discovering in our brain cells.  It's a deeper connection with the reality of life, the universe and everything that most of us can have.  And it, arguably, is what will save our universe more than anything that we can contrive or create out from the nothingness of our own brain's endless ability to hallucinate or produce.

 

Think about it.
