I was just sent a link by a friend to this utterly inspirational video by Dr Jill Bolte Taylor and I had to share it with you. She calls it her “idea worth spreading”.
One morning, a blood vessel in Jill Bolte Taylor’s brain exploded. As a brain scientist, she realized she had a ringside seat to her own stroke. She watched as her brain functions shut down one by one: motion, speech, memory, self-awareness …
As she progressed through the stroke, she became aware of the energy that flows through each and every one of us. She felt the full force of her connection with the Universe. She realised the enormity of the Universal joke that we are in any way separate. But she couldn’t remember how to speak, count or do any of the left-brain activities that most of us take for granted.
Her phenomenal journey of recovery inspired her to share her story – the “idea worth spreading” – around the globe. So here’s a video she’s published, explaining what happened to her and how we can all reach that state of oneness, without needing to go through what she went through.
But beware: this video, if you take the time to watch it all the way through, might just change your life.
And if you want to know more about her story, here’s a link to her book: “My Stroke Of Insight” by Dr Jill Bolte Taylor.
