MenoSunday; Life Lived Lovingly

Last week, we saw the first TED talk given by Brene Brown in 2010 on opening up to vulnerability as a way to integrate ourselves more deeply in human connection ... it was used here as this also ties in with living in CeL.  That talk has been viewed well over 24 million times on the TED site and through YouTube as well as some ad hoc places... such as this blog. Yup. Shows the interest and the desire to improve connection!

In 2012, Ms Brown presented via TED once more. It is a live demonstration of vulnerability in action - and I am inclined to believe that it is the capital 'ell' Love which permitted the process for the talker. Her terminology may be different, but it is there nonetheless.

Did you find questions arose from last week's video? Were any answered through your own processing? Did this vid help to answer some? Did it raise more?

Don't be left hanging if this has 'brought stuff up'... do leave a comment or send an email if you think there is anything you need a bit of outside help with.... and do not hesitate to seek professional assistance in your own place of residence if 'time bombs' have been released. For most folk, these talks are relatively benign, but as a professional counselor I also am aware that our scabs can be knocked at the most unexpected times.

Do not sit in loneliness, in low-esteem, in fear... know that the world, for all its apparent threat, is actually a place of Love.
