Metaphysical poetry

William Blake Love’s Secret
Never seek to tell thy love,
Love that never told can be;
For the gentle wind doth move
Silently, invisibly.

I told my love, I told my love,
I told her all my heart,
Trembling, cold, in ghastly fears.
Ah! she did depart!

Soon after she was gone from me,
A traveller came by,
Silently, invisibly:
He took her with a sigh.

Emily Dickinson Success is counted sweetest

Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne’er succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.

Not one of all the purple Host
Who took the Flag today
Can tell the definition
So clear of victory

As he defeated – dying –
On whose forbidden ear
The distant strains of triumph
Burst agonized and clear!

Holy Sonnet X by John Donne 

Death be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think’st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee,
Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee doe goe,
Rest of their bones, and souls deliverie.
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell,
And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well,
And better than thy stroake; why swell’st thou then;
One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.

Koko

Based on research from the MIT Media Lab, Koko uses an innovative form of crowdsourced cognitive therapy.

An Old Problem

When we’re stressed, we often become our own worst enemy. We tell ourselves that we can’t do it. That we aren’t good enough. That things will never get better.

Our thoughts influence how we feel. While we can always modify our thoughts,  wrestling with our own mind can sometimes feel like a losing battle. Koko is based on the simple idea that we can be stronger together. Together, we can tame our thoughts, build resilience, and learn to stay calm and collected in the face of any stress.

A New Technology

Some of the most powerful software applications and services from the past decade have been powered by collective intelligence. Google, Wikipedia, and Quora, to name just a few, work by intelligently coordinating the collective behaviors of thousands, if not millions, of people on the Internet.

Could this same approach help promote well-being? Could we crowdsource the treatment of stress and anxiety? What benefits might come from a ‘peer support’ model, where everyone learns by teaching others?

Koko hopes to answer these questions.

The Science

In a randomized controlled trial, a web-based version of Koko outperformed an existing intervention on a host of psychological outcome measures.  The results were analyzed by researchers at MIT, Northwestern, and Columbia, and the findings were published in a leading medical journal.

In my opinion This app is definitely a great stress reliever
