From Bill Phillips' talk on Saturday morning:
When you are trying to make a change, you have far more power to make it when your heart is in the change than when you try to do it out of your head alone.Bill's new work is on the process of transformation -- inspired by his work in helping people transform their bodies through exercise and nutrition, but also bigger than that. In this point in his talk, he was using the work of the Heartmath Institute. But even without electromagnetic measurements, we can see the sense of a change being more powerful when it comes from the desire to have a different experience of the world than when we want to see political change, or we want to see less littering, or we want to know the polar bears will have their icy habitat for centuries to come. Or because we know we should.
Heartful changes the ones that have real staying power. And they're the ones that seem authentic and compelling to others.
