I watched the video, although I heard nothing akin to Islam in it. Huffington I've heard a few times, beginning when she was a guest on Bill Maher's Politically Incorrect in the 1990s through 2002.


Some things I thought were notable were:


@0:14 "burial in our thoughts" is what is also called self-absorption.


@0:17 innovation is hindered by connections (too much incoming noise)


@0:19 burnout is not the way to succeed.


@0:21 "giving is a short cut to heaven" is an emotionalism and not Islamic


@)0:24 we suffer from breathlessness -(we are over/hyper active)


@0:27 "drop something", a project to eliminate it from ourselves. refered to again @0:54


@0:38 "obnoxious roommate living in my head"  :)


@0:39 life is about energy; and "is also about what we are doing with our thoughts"


And @ the end she refers to these as focusing tools,


She also refers to Marcus Aurelius, the last of the "5 Good Emperors" of Rome. Marcus was a Stoic in philosophy which was the dominant "thought" until the scientific reasoning succeeded the Renaissance.
