Dancing Your Way To A Better Life

In the middle of one of the most dangerous favelas in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, a group of about 40 girls gathers. Thanks to ballet school founder Tuany Nascimento, they are able to escape the pervasive drug war violence of their hometown and find respite through dance. With their focus on camaraderie and improving their ballet skills, they find out they can have dreams worth going for.

Just seeing their hope and joy is enough to make you feel hope and joy, for them and for the  goodness that exists everywhere. Dreams fulfilled are just as possible for them as they are for any of us on this planet. We just need to get together and help each other out. Share this video to pass this inspiring message along!

Excuse Me, Fear, I’m Coming Through

At twelve years old, Hannah Fraser, a shy girl who didn’t even really like herself, decided to do one scary thing per day. At first she just did small things like raise her hand in class, but over time, her habit of pushing fear aside grew.

Hannah is now the world’s foremost professional mermaid, underwater performance artist, and activist for ocean animals. She swims with sharks and whales and maintains that thinking about what you’re scared of is scarier than actually doing it. So go do it! And share this video so we can all release our inner merperson!

Hannah Fraser was always the shy girl. One day she made the decision to change her life. Now, not only is she a professional mermaid, she is also a marine life activist that swims with sharks. And conquers her fears on a daily basis.by: Today, I'm Brave

This Video Will Literally Make You Rethink Life

Prince Ea offers a stunningly simple yet mind-blowing perspective in this spoken word performance. The video shows a diverse group of individuals, all lip-syncing to the same voice. On many levels, we are all the same. Nonetheless, we have been assigned these labels, ones we have even unwittingly accepted. And they aren’t who we really are, any more than wearing a white vs. black shirt makes us who we are!

Labels–about our skin, gender, ideologies, whatever–only lead to artificial separation. And separation has the power to lead even to war.

What about who we are inside? Who would we be without these labels?

Watch this video to really be inspired to see your true self, and others’, as part of a connected, compassionate human race.

Share this beautiful message of love and unity.

I Just Sued The School System!!!

Five days a week, children must go to school, where they are placed among peers and taught the same subjects in the same classroom set up that we’ve been using for the last 150 years. Then, if they don’t succeed in these few subjects, by taking the same tests from the same books as everyone else, they are made to feel inferior and even worthless.

The result is that all these children end up thinking they aren’t smart, when really they just haven’t been given the opportunity to find their genius. In fact, the archaic set up of the school system actually discourages the blossoming of their individual talents.

In this video, Prince Ea is suing the school system for killing progression, creativity, and individuality. In front of a courtroom jury, he makes a compelling case for reform like you’ve never seen before.

Watch and be a member of the jury yourself. Then share if you agree!  

Everybody Dies, But Not Everybody Lives

We are all here for a limited amount of time, so let’s live a fulfilling life while we can! Asked their biggest regrets, people near end of life say it’s the things they didn’t do. So if your life were to come to the end right now, what would you regret not doing?

Prince Ea offers the idea that we are here to live out our dream, but we don’t choose dreams; they choose us. And if we don’t follow them, we end up depriving not only ourselves, but everyone else of the gifts we have to offer.

All we need is courage to go for the dream that picks us. Of course there will be struggles along the way, (that’s part of it) but the alternative is the struggle of regret for not really living, for allowing doubt to snuff out our flame that has the potential to light up the world.

There is no do over. And it’s not too late. What will you do now? Let this video be a catalyst to go out and live the life you want! Don’t forget to share this post to inspire more people!

Dear Future Generations: Sorry

Inspired by spending time in Africa where he witnessed firsthand the destruction of the rainforest, Prince Ea crafts a message for future generations. He apologizes to our future in a spoken word performance about what we are doing to our planet. Unless we change directions, he foresees a time when we will have to hear stories of what trees were and how they once literally breathed life into this planet. We are living in a world where the desire for money, ironically made from trees, is leading to our downfall

In a compelling entreaty to look beyond our selfish, monetary pursuits, he reminds us that it is not too late to care for our world before there is nothing–and no one–left.

This video fosters feelings of a connected Earth family and offers a way to hold out our hands in solidarity for the protection of our beautiful, benevolent trees. Click and share to help preserve our home!

Can We Auto-Correct Humanity?

In this video, Prince Ea reminds us of what our phones are doing to humanity. They help us immensely, but at what cost?

His spoken word will get you thinking about how much you live through the real world and how much you live through your phone. A lot of times we aren’t even experiencing life because we’re either distracted by our phones or trying to get the best picture/video of our experience, which ironically prevents us from actually experiencing it.

We’ve learned to speak in abbreviations and hang out with friends through social media while ignoring the people right in front of us. But to keep humanity thriving, we must maintain awareness and care for our physical world.

As long as we do, we can maximize technology’s benefits, (and one of them is being able to view this video), so watch the video and share this post if you like it!
