World Peace – Shaping young minds

February 24th, 2013

What if there was a brilliant, innovative educational methodology that addressed global challenges? What if this was a game being taught in the schools that could proactively teach the children of today to be spontaneously compassionate; a world leader; and strategically equipped to lead the world of tomorrow? Below is one of the best TED talks given by John Hunter at at TED Conference:

Small Loans, Massive Returns

February 5th, 2013

Kiva - an extraordinary organization that allows an opportunity to make a  huge difference in people’s lives and livelihoods with tiny contributions.

The concept of micro-lending originally was pioneered through the Grameen Bank of Bangladesh by the economist Mohammad Yunus who turned conventional banking on it’s head to help women who didn’t qualify for bank loans.

Kiva takes it to another level, by connecting thousands of borrowers with partners to alleviate poverty around the globe. Make a difference!

From Passion to Purpose -

July 29th, 2012

Consider there are three stages to reach the state of well being. And when I refer to well being I mean life as a whole, where you have all aspects of life – the career/profession, finances, relationships, health, contribution and spirituality in play and all of them working in harmony.

Let’s continue our discussion…shall we?

The three stages are:

World Peace: One child at a time

May 26th, 2010

World Peace for me means to raise the consciousness of humanity, bringing a global awareness such that respect, trust and listening is restored to the planet. We begin to acknowledge that there is unity in diversity; people are touched, moved and inspired to contribute to each other through an exchange of culture, sharing of universal principles, fostering an atmosphere of dignity & respect all in the context of extraordinary love.

A friend of mine Adena Levine, a Peace Preschool Director of the Jerusalem International YMCA is working on such an initiative. The goals of the Preschool are:

* To provide a high-quality preschool education which stimulates children intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically in the tradition of the YMCA ideals of balanced spirit, mind and body.
* To facilitate coexistence between Muslims and Jews on a daily, ongoing basis as a normal part of life for children and their families.
* To expose the children to the Other and to the Other’s culture, language and religion, enabling the development of tolerance and understanding while preserving the distinct characteristics of each child and their cultural identity. This is not a “melting pot” model but an attempt to create a coexistence of diversities.

The Seven Symphonies of Extraordinary Love

May 7th, 2010

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”- Rumi

Extraordinary Love is the ability to love for the sake of love itself. This ability to radiate extraordinary love in our lives requires a paradigm shift in how we love that can fundamentally transform every relationship that we know and is the essence of my book The Seven Symphonies of Extraordinary Love. Unless, we are willing to shift the context or the paradigm that we operate in about love, any actions we undertake will lead to only a variation of the past.

Extraordinary Love is not simply an emotion, a feeling, or a body sensation. It is awareness, consciousness and a way of Being. It is a conscious choice to love without conditions. You love another person simply for the sake of love, and not because of a special circumstance, or to fulfill our needs or attributes that they demonstrate. One makes an extraordinary choice to love extraordinarily.

Access to the Eternal

November 16th, 2009

The wisdom of the ages provides us a blueprint to access the eternal or as some say ‘All of it’. Consider there are three areas or stages that one usually dwells in either by conscious choice or by default.

  1. Physical World: This is where all the doing takes places. Your identity is built in this realm of existence. All the achievements and accomplishments fall under this category. Life’s challenges, the circumstances, the strategies and management of results are a product of this world. Having mastery in navigating through them using success principles and tools enables one to rise above the rest. The underlying context of this world is to become outrageously successful and change is the mantra, while art is the access to mastery. Vanity is the attribute to watch out for, as it can lead to one’s downfall.
