Hello, Travis here...
You can find my story following Abraham Hicks here: http://traviseric.com/abraham-hicks/
I’m a lot like you, I imagine. Bentinho would even go so far as to say that I AM you.
I still can’t completely wrap my head around that one, yet.
I am beginning to realize the power within these teachings tho…
From teachers like Abraham-Hicks.
Yes… I will say I started out very skeptical. It took hundreds of books that all pointed in the same direction for me to truly surrender myself to this way of being.
Whatever you want to call it...
The Law of Attraction, the secret, living in alignment, reap what you sow, karma.
I went through the Wayne Dyers, Eckhart Tolles, Oshos and Stuart Wildes. I followed the 8 Fold Path. Experimented with raw food diets. I meditate. I Even went to the jungle and visited with Ayahuasca.
I’ve come to believe it. I see it at work in my life and the lives of the people I encounter. The more I slow down and feel good, the more I see it.
That’s why, like You, I listen to Abraham. And when I was first beginning to understand this stuff I listened OFTEN.
Like you I realized there is a power in the words and the way of being that is pointed to.
I returned anytime I found myself forgetting what was important. How the world works. That we’re all vibrational energy and that the world is a reflection of our state of being.
That what we focus on expands. That our fault is never with the people and things of our circumstances. Instead if we want our world to change we have to change our perception of our world.
That’s what Abraham Hicks makes glaringly obvious and easy.
That is why I return to her teachings again and again.
And the longer I’ve followed these principles, the more I’ve learned to trust their wisdom.
Watching as my life transformed right under my feet. Barely able to recognize myself from only a few months before. Acceleration will do that.
But, As you know… It’s not always easy.
You have to become more sensitive. You have to start auditing the influences you have around you. Some people fall away. Old careers have to transform their shape.
Once you wake up you’re never again comfortable in the old shell of who your former self was pretending to be.
The world can become something you no longer can relate to.
I’ve been to the bottom. Had times where I was damned glad I had a tool like ‘this too shall pass’ because there wasn’t one thing physical I could reach for to hold onto.
That’s when you realize the power of these paths. Of shaping your reality with the vibration you emit and the visions you have rather than the effort and hustle you’re able to discipline yourself to put in.
You realize that every time you look back on anything hard you ever went through...
Some part of you was glad you went through it.
That the lesson you gained and took into the rest of your life was worth the pain 10x over…
We realize that our lives are a reflection of what w...
This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random.
The original idea for this site actually stemmed from another idea to provide a way of benchmarking the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. There are probably sites that do this by now, but there wasn’t when we started out. Anyway, in order to figure out how popular any one video is, you need a pretty large sample of videos to rank it against. The challenge is that the sample needs to be very random in order to properly rank a video and YouTube doesn’t appear to provide a way to obtain large numbers of random video IDs.
Even if you search on YouTube for a random string, the set of results that will be returned will still be based on popularity, so if you’re using this approach to build up your sample, you’re already in trouble. It turns out there is a multitude of ways in which the YouTube search function makes it very difficult to retrieve truly random results.
So how can we provide truly random links to YouTube videos? It turns out that the YouTube programming interface (API) provides additional functions that allow the discovery of videos which, with the right approach, are much more random. Using a number of tricks, combined some subtle manipulation of the space-time fabric, we have managed to create a process that yields something very close to 100% random links to YouTube videos.
YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can only watch videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos. Videos deemed potentially inappropriate are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.
YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense, a program which targets ads according to site content and audience. The vast majority of its videos are free to view, but there are exceptions, including subscription-based premium channels, film rentals, as well as YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, subscription services respectively offering premium and ad-free music streaming, and ad-free access to all content, including exclusive content commissioned from notable personalities. As of February 2017, there were more than 400 hours of content uploaded to YouTube each minute, and one billion hours of content being watched on YouTube every day. As of August 2018, the website is ranked as the second-most popular site in the world, according to Alexa Internet, just behind Google. As of May 2019, more than 500 hours of video content are uploaded to YouTube every minute.
YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent and/or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
