I thought that the newest, just 2.40min long video from Jason Silva from Shots of Awe Project gives truly a great advice for the 2015 – a year of infinite possibilities if we choose to stay OPEN, stepping OUT of safety box and Living fully. If you want to check what the amazing Shots of Awe Project is all about please read my previous blog post here: Shots of Awe with Jason Silva. Mind-boggling experience for body and soul in less than 3 min.
From youtube channel :“Join Jason Silva every week as he freestyles his way into the complex systems of society, technology and human existence and discusses the truth and beauty of science in a form of existential jazz. New episodes every Tuesday.”
FOMO: The Fear of Missing Out – “it just shows you that you have intuition that there is something greater OUT there”. Don’t close yourself within box of one choice if there are infinite possibilities flowing around…
It’s interesting how we are being told from early age that we need to make one choice about who we want to be in the future, about the faculty we want to / or even worse – should choose to study at university (that will allegedly assure you “well paid” job), about the direction of your career, about focusing on ONE thing – that will bring us fulfilment. There is this saying that if you focus on too many things you will never be an expert in anything and won’t be acknowledged by society as such. And I think…bullshit. Do I really need a label “expert” to be happy in life with what I do? Me learning from different sources and expanding my knowledge about many polarized subjects from totally different categories, brings me joy and the feeling of feeding my constantly thirsty curiosity. Following the social “advice” of operating within a more firm and conclusive structure would literally kill me in a sense.

Decided to go through last SHOTS OF AWE episodes today – a short film series of “trailers for the mind” that serve as philosophical espresso shots exploring innovation, technology creativity, futurism and the metaphysics of the imagination. I already wrote an entire blog post on this amazing online project called “Mind boggling experience for body and soul in less than 3min.“so please have a look at that. To keep the information in the flow though, I decided to share this reminder about Shots of Awe again, as I watched some of the latest short videos and as usual got inspired, uplifted and mind blown 😉 Hope You will too. Pay attention to words being spoken during watching shots of awes.These videos present not only visually phenomenal masterpiece but all episodes are loaded with great information and often mention titles of great books and authors worth checking out, like Ray Kurzweil “Singularity is Near”, Buckminster Fuller’s books, Marshal McLuhan, Joseph Campbell, etcetera.
Call me crazy but I feel always amazingly energised and wonderfully nourished by these philosophical espresso shots that give a positive adrenaline rush with the inner power to conquer the world without caffeine caused migraines or energy drop downs after a while.
Why I keep watching those episodes? Well think one of them describes it best – I am just passionately c u r i o u s ! Loving cognitive ecstasy! Awakening my wonder Junkie day after day!

I truly fell in love with Jason’s project of Shots of Awe a while ago when it was at its beginning phase. Something resonated with me when I listened to few episodes and I couldn’t help it but watch all of the released ones. The whole idea was apparently born out of inner, unfed curiosity and quest for knowledge and answering questions about the nature of the Universe and Life itself in all its glory. Jason seems to be interested in… pretty much e v e r y t h i n g and is driven by inner urge to “know it all”.. So as you can see – I could relate to him pretty easily 😉 Watching his short 3 min top youtube vlogs became addictive to me at one stage and I am always excited and happy to see new release. It’s a truly magical feast for the eyes, ears, mind and Heart. Amazingly sensual ride every time I tune into SHOTS OF AWE videos list. Each video is also charged with some meaningful philosophical quotations that literally make you stop, drop everything you do and THINK. Continue reading “Shots of Awe with Jason Silva.
