What difference can I make?

I like seeing through a glass bottle. It gives another perspective on reality. The world is decoded in our minds to be what we understand as real (‘our’ world exists in our heads not out there). It is a filtered and biased process. Learning to question the world grows independent thought and the ability to nurture our own form of world peace. Change is not out there, it’s inside. Being vegan is a show of peace and a giant leap away from the violence humans project upon world. Think you can’t make a difference? You vote for a certain type of life every time you spend money. Each pound, dollar, euro or whatever spent is a hand raised for the kind of world you wish to live in.

Feeding the Literate Mind

The desire to find a fuller life, make a stronger connection with the spiritual, live less in the now and do the least harm possible is for many people primarily emotionally driven. Others, though, strive for and cherish a thoughtful, principled or intellectually-underpinned approach, one which feeds their curiousity or exposes them to the experiences and perspectives of others. In this section of Charming Mind, we aim to explore, and sometimes celebrate, thoughts and ideas which can give a nudge along the journey.

As we travel around the world, absorbing and recording physical experiences and encounters, Literate Mind provides the space to interpret responses to what others have recorded in written form.  From book reviews to political commentary but way of reaction to breaking news, here is a place for debate and argument to inform the intellectual side of our search for the Charming Mind. Come join us.
