Co-author of the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series, and known as America’s #1 Success Coach, Jack Canfield, discussed his life story, and how people can find greater success and happiness, and fulfill their life purpose. Each person has a life purpose unique to them, and ideally they should find work related to this, as people are happiest doing what they love, he said. A life purpose is often related to what a person is most passionate about, what brings them joy. He offers a free written exercise (PDF file) to help people discover their life purpose.
Canfield talked about a person's Inner Guidance System-- "we're always getting information that we're either on course, or off course...when we're doing the thing that we're supposed to do that leads us to our greatest fulfillment...we will experience this sense of expansion rather than contraction, we'll experience joy rather than the lack of it...and energy and aliveness rather than the sense of deadness." He also addressed The Secret (the Law of Attraction), explaining that our thoughts and feelings are broadcast, and people attract others vibrating at the same level.
Canfield shared his vision during meditation of being a member of a golden, soul-traveling motorcycle gang who saw the earth in peril and came here to assist during the crisis in bringing about a massive global transformation. Author William Gladstone (who co-wrote The Golden Motorcycle Gang with Canfield) joined in the conversation, and discussed his interest in 2012 and the Mayan Calendar. Rather than signifying the end of the world, Dec. 21, 2012 marks the end of a cycle, and the birth of a new one that can make way for positive global change, he commented.
First hour guest, author David Nabhan shared his plan for an earthquake warning system for the US West Coast. Many of the largest quakes that struck California occurred at specific times of day, and during either new or full moon phases. This suggests to him that lunar and tidal forces can have an influence on quakes, and to increase preparedness, California should set up an advisory system announcing when such quake factors are present.
Gigantic structures in the middle of the Chinese desert have been spotted on Google Maps. One theory is that they could be grids for calibrating spy satellites. More on the mysterious structures at Gizmodo.
