    The Metrics of Human Consciousness with Richard Barrett

    in Spirituality

    The Metrics of Human Consciousness with Richard Barrett


    History has shown that the evolution of measurement is the key to the evolution of societies, something we take for granted since most of our measurements are already standardized. Richard Barrett believes that we are missing one very important standardized measurement– human consciousness.  


    In his book, The Metrics of Human Consciousness, Richard delves into what consciousness is and how it can be quantified in order to significantly improve our individual, organizational, and societal performance.   By creating psychological measurement technologies, Richard believes that we can change the conversation not just about what exists, but what we need to move to in order to resolve the current issues our global society is facing.


    Richard Barrett, Founder and Chairman of the Barrett Values Centre, is an internationally recongnised thought leader on values, culture and leadership in business and society. He is a Fellow of the World Business Academy, Member of the Wisdom Council of the Center for Integral Wisdom, Honorary Board Member of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, and Former Values Coordinator at the World Bank.

    Sunday on the Front Stoop

    in Energy

    Why are so many people being killed around the world?


    Think of that sad "terrorism" around our world.  Is such "terrorism" being provoked by our dependence on foreign oil and other natural resource under their ground ?  Dennis, Jeff, and Susan will discuss this interesting issue.


    HREM, Human Renewable Energy Measurement.  All these years when America had free grade school and free high school, why has college been SO expensive?  When a student graduates high school the average age is 18.  That's the same age when he or she can become a military soldier.  If they could not afford that expensive college, they've been told to just go overseas for a few years and they will afford higher education.


    The sad news is that some of these teenagers never returned home and died in the army or navy or air force.  Even some that were lucky enough to return home, committed suicide after leaving these wars.  When they return home, they are reminded of their loving religious upbringing.  They had been taught to "love thy neighbor" or "thou shalt not kill".  If they were told overseas to "go in that house and kill whoever you see" they now mourn for all those innocent men or women or children that they killed under military order.  


    Fortunately, President Obama is now recommending that college becomes as free to our students as was their grade school and high school.  


    As an example, Saudi Arabia is No. 6 on the list of dictatorships in our world.  They get most of their weapons from countries like ours and we get a low price for the oil from under their ground.  Instead of sending our boys and girls overseas to get that good price on their oil, why not switch to solar or wind power?  That could also put an end to Climate Change on our planet.

    Making a measurement- episode 4

    in Spirituality

    One of the most ubiquitous ways in which we think and engage in the world is by comparison. We compare our lives and ideas to others, our past to our present and so on. This way of thinking and speaking is a common tool of the ego to inflate ones persona by reinforcing an artificial hierarchy. Leeza suggest that we practice discernment and self-reflection rather than opinion making and value judgements.
     
    We'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic and possibly how your life has changed by pondering such ideas.
     
    This show is about the sincere investigation of how language shapes the mind, thinking greater than our perceived environment and growing in our capacity to live fully in the present moment.
     
    Leeza offers her insights on compassion, equanimity, and the peace that transcends all understanding. Your active participation is essential- as you're part of the equation. For more info about Leeza please visit authenticexpressions.org and post your inquiries on our Facebook Group for Universality of Transformation.
