Mana from LiveKraft , Inspiration unleashed !
The important thing is to not stop questioning - Albert Einstein
In Polynesian and Melanesian culture ‘mana’ is one’s source of power; a combination of presence, wisdom, charisma, prestige, dignity, honor, and spiritual energy. All humans and many elements in nature possess mana. One acquires mana by the performance of right actions and by treating people and the environment with respect.
In Sanskrit, Mana or Manas means ‘mind’, from the root word ‘man’ which means ‘to think’.
“All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind: the infinite library of the universe is in our own mind.” -Swami Vivekananda
To make everyday memorable. A day that you haven’t thought of something new, or haven’t experienced something different is a wasted day. This was idea that sparked off Mana, a device that sits quietly in the background, infusing your environment with inspiration, imagination, creativity and vitality.
Words are instruments of power. For millennia our ancestors have transmitted the best of their wisdom in the form of quotes, proverbs, poetry and literature. Today the frantic pace of our modern lives, leaves us with little time to reflect on these profound truths. In the words of the Nathan Algren from the last Samurai.. “Necessary? What could be more necessary ?”
