Archives For kindness

Our brothers and sisters in Paris, we are with you. As fellow citizens of this beautiful planet…what occurs for one of us occurs for all of us.

Sometimes out of the greatest tragedy comes the greatest possibility. Sometimes it is what we require to wake ourselves from the slumber of apathy.

We don’t necessarily have a choice about everything that gets created in our world, but we do have choice in how we respond.

Would we all be willing to ask what contribution we can be to make sure this never occurs on our planet again?

Will it happen again, someplace else? Maybe. But what can we step up and be willing to be that would change our world and reality so this can no longer happen in any of our cities, states and countries around the world?

East and west are irrelevant. We ALL live on this planet together.

Now is the time for the voices of possibility and awareness to speak up. Now is the time for us to stop being silent. If you would like to see something different as your world, BE the energy of that showing up in the world.

Know that it can exist. Don’t deny it. Don’t negate it. Stop believing that it has no value. Your awareness of something different and something possible, is what has the greatest value at a time like this.

What do you know that will change the face of our planets future that you haven’t been choosing?

If we would recognize this planet as our home, what would we all choose that we are not yet choosing? And if we did choose it, what might occur that hasn’t yet been able to?

Let’s stop letting the future of our planet be in the hands of those that scream the loudest and hate the most.

Let’s take back our future and recognise we have the capacity to create a kinder, gentler, more inclusive, less judgmental, less vitriolic world.

It is within our grasp.

WE, together, can create it.

If not us, who? If not now, when?



For 35 years, Raimundo lived amongst garbage on the streets in São Paulo, Brazil, writing poetry every day.

“Damned is the man who abandons himself. These six words show that the worse the situation is…Never, ever should a man consider it lost.” – The Conditioned

Befriended by a young woman who wanted to make Raimundo’s dream come true of publishing his poetry; what happened next was a miracle neither one of them could have predicted.

What would be possible for the world if we all chose to act on the impulse of kindness, even when it seems all is lost?

What if that impulse of kindness is actually our awareness of what is truly possible here, beyond the conclusions of this reality?

What world could we create if we always, always chose to function from what else is possible?
