To Live is to Learn, to Learn is to Live

Our goal at savegoodness is to encourage and inspire a well-lived life - or a life lived from the inside out. We want to help you live a more beautiful, authentic, well-functioning life. To do this, we encourage you to seek Beauty, Trueness, Love, and Life-giving things everyday. These things are vital to the health of your heart and soul.

We know that your heart is ground zero in the fight to save Goodness for future generations. You carry a Goodness that this world needs. It is unique to you and must be protected, promoted, and preserved. If your heart is well cared for, then you will naturally pass on your Goodness to others. In this way, Goodness survives and thrives.

This week we have some inspiring creative work for you to consider. We want to share a series of three short films. Each one of them beautifully reinforces our core value of learning to live from the heart. These films promote the idea of seeking life-giving things. We hope they will motivate you to translate their message into your own “culture.”

Three filmmakers; Rick Mereki, Tim White, and Andrew Lees conspired to create something that moves and stirs the mind and soul. They distill their work down to this:

“3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films…..”

We will start the week with the film Learn. In just over a minute you will experience a journey across the globe. On this trek you will see a multitude of different opportunities taken to “learn” from the people and cultures that these adventurers encounter.

Our hope is that in watching, you will be challenged to learn from the world you live in. Take a class, study something that interests you, explore the amazing and interesting people all around you. Be bold and brave – choose a life-giving possibility and make it an opportunity to Live!

Be inspired!


A “Good” Idea:

Look for an opportunity to learn something new this week. Come back and tell us what you tried. Also, join us on Thursday for the last two short films, Eat and Move!

    What a great reminder to maintain a passion for learning! Truly inspirational. I accepted your challenge before you issued it: after a very long time of “dissing” most things technological, I asked for a Kindle for my birthday. Eureka! My super-duper-who-needs-to-dust-books-ever-again arrived yesterday afternoon. By evening, I had downloaded a word game on it and “leveled up” to instant addict. Technology and me! Who knew?! My husband says that had he known I’d use my Kindle as a gaming device, he’d have taken out the extended warranty. Thanks for the reminder that we thrive as life-long learners! (For the record, I am keeping my books, just not dusting them as often. This as a result of noting the beauty of sparklies that glisten when the sun shines on my bookcase. Dust bunnies can be things of beauty, too.)

      Debbie -
      We wish you well with your Kindle! It is good for the soul to stretch and learn and grow. I am practicing using my new iPad (also a birthday gift) and love it. This old dog is working on some new tricks. Loved your response to the post. Please share anytime you feel like it. We love to hear from our readers.
