Jack Kerouac - the crazy ones!

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.

They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."

The Pachamama Alliance

While we were in Bali at the EBS (Entrepreneur Business School) with Roger Hamilton - highly recommended by the way!! we had an afternoon seminar presented by the Pachamama Alliance with Marcia Martin - what an inspiring afternoon that was.

A quote that really touched me is as follows:
When a caterpillar reaches a certain point in its own evolution, it becomes over-consumptive, a voracious eater and it eats everything in sight.

At that same time, in the molecular structure of the caterpillar, the “imaginal cells” become active. While all this gorging is going on, those imaginal cells wake up, and they look for each other inside of the caterpillar’s body. When enough of them connect (they don't need to be in the majority) they become the genetic directors of the future of the caterpillar. At that point the other cells begin to putrefy and become what’s called the nutritive soup—out of which the imaginal cells create the absolute unpredictable miracle of the butterfly.

What’s possible is that we're the imaginal cells on the planet right now.

Inspired by Elisabet Sahtouris

So all you imaginal cells out there.. lets get connected!!!
