How to Be Alone, shared by Tanya Davis & Andrea Dorfman

“What should young people do with their lives today? The most daring thing is to create stable communities in which loneliness can be cured.”

-Kurt Vonnegut-

How can we be alone without feeling lonely? Are there acceptable places where we can start to embrace being alone? Why does society fear those who are alone? Today’s video shared by Tanya Davis and Andrea Dorfman helps us unlock the hidden power behind loneliness.

Tanya Davis, a Halifax Poet Laureate and musician, wrote the poem which she brings to life in this short clip. Encouraging us to step into being alone in the accepted places first; the bath, library, and the gym. Things we may have previously avoided can open to us by embracing being alone. Check out her awesome creation here:

If you want to learn more about Tanya, her wonderful performances and music, connect to her website and many YouTube clips.  Andrea Dorfman’s stunning art and animations can be found via her site and channel as well.

Many thanks to these two artists and the beautiful work they have created together. Hope you enjoy this exploration into the healing power of loneliness.

Have a great weekend and Stay Wise!

Get Out of the Materialism Trap NOW! shared by Erin Janus

“The reason we have poverty is that we have no imagination. There are a great many people accumulating what they think is vast wealth, but it’s only money.”

-Alan Watts-

How often do we dream about the perfect life we could have with vast amounts of money? How much time do we spend acquiring things which we are certain will bring us closer to that end goal? Why do we forgo happiness until the perfect set of financial and material circumstances surround us? Today’s Daily Dose shared by Erin Janus delves into the Materialism Trap in all it’s ridiculous glory.

Why can’t so many of us break the cycle? Well according to Erin Janus, we CAN stop NOW! How you ask? Simply by understanding the wealth that many Americans already enjoy; and holding that thought in balance with the rest of our planet every time we open our wallets. If you’re a reader, check out this Wise Read by Tim Kasser:

The High Price of Materialism

Admittedly, no one can do this as perfectly as it is portrayed in this clip but we can do better. And maybe life would be a bit more enjoyable if we drop the stress to acquire and love what we already have in our lives, humans included.

Erin Janus is a Youtube creator, Blogger and Humanitarian. She has worked since her teenage years to create content which encourages us to leave the world in a better state than we found it. She promotes simple living, veganism and social consciousness through her writing and films. Find her inspiring work on YouTube, Instagram and her personal website.
