Humility, Himalayas, Happiness

Friends, few personal updates from my end.

Last week, I was in Atlanta speaking about a value that so many of us naturally resonate with: humility. Preceded by John Lewis and Andrew Young talking about Martin Luther King Jr., the ambiance became profoundly charged. Here's the transcript of what I shared:

The Radical Power of Humility

Few other recent highlights ...

Reflections in the Himalayas: diving into Bhutan's Gross National Happiness.

Symphony of Peace Prayers in Japan: Hosted by one of the most loving families I've met.

The Meditating Minister of Ecuador: "We have great roads, but not enough good drivers."

'Laddership' Circles: ServiceSpace launches Fellowship with 23 love warriors.

As the days unfold, I continue to be taken by serendipity. Sometimes life offers us an opportunity to be helpful -- like this man whose name I may never know -- and sometimes we get completely unexpected inspiration, like my chance meeting with a deeply cultivated potter. But at a deeper level, the lines are impossibly blurred and it's hard to tell who (or what) is serving who.

With smiles, :)
