An Introduction to Inspiration Information

You are the embodiment of the information you choose to accept and act upon.  To change your circumstances you need to change your thinking and subsequent actions.” –Adlin Sinclair

Every day 353,000 people are born.  Every day 146,000 people die.  Almost 52 million cars are produced each year, 285 million computers sold.  Globally we cut down an 240 square acres of virgin forest (an are the size of Tokyo) each day.   There are more than 1 billion malnourished people in the world today and another 1 billion who are obese.  Children are starving.  Hurricanes, flash floods, earthquakes and erupting volcanoes are increasing with alarming frequency.   The ice caps are melting, the economy is failing and everywhere you look, every news article you read seems to emphasis the harsh and terrifying brutality of life on earth.

And yet

Every day there are thousands of people falling in love, celebrating the birth of their first or fifth child, rejoicing in the inspiring life of a recently deceased beloved.  There are people replanting the forests, feeding the homeless, rescuing animals trapped in trees.  For every disaster, every act of destruction and suffering, there are equal acts of kindness and compassion.  It’s Newton’s third law of Motion, the basics that form both physics and karma: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

As such, Inspiration Information seeks to highlight incredible stories of everyday individuals going above and beyond the call of duty to make small but significant differences in our world at large.  These are unassuming heroes, people who regardless of their social, physical or spiritual situations and inclinations actively participate in bringing their light to the world.

We know personally how hard it is to balance good intentions with the daily grind of leading a busy life.  It’s often exhausting just trying to pay the bills, stay healthy, and spend time with loved ones.  Not to mention getting a good night’s sleep.  And as a result priorities quickly shift… random acts of kindness, social altruism, and community service get shuffled to the bottom of the To Do List.  It’s so easy to fall into the ennui of individual survival mode, that we often forget how truly blessed we are.  And more, to extend that blessing and reach out a hand to someone less fortunate.

One of our favorite all time quotes and life-mantras comes from famous Mythologist Joseph Campbell who says, ““Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.”

Inspiration Information will follow people who not only choose to live in joy, but also spread joy to others.  It is our attempt to counteract all the negative news that constantly bombards us with our own healthy dose of positivity.  Action – reaction.  We can always use more inspiration in our lives.
