Doors Keep Opening

Feb 1, 2005

"I'm sure you'll have many doors open for your like this," Jayeshbhai said as he opened the door to his 21st floor, penthouse-like home, overlooking all of Singapore.

Several years ago, I had met Jayeshbhai at 11PM in Bangalore. At the time, I didn't know he was the founder of Sony Ent. TV in Asia or that he was planning on committing his life to service at the age of 50, or that he was deeply interested in spirituality. But he was. :) A year later, he handed over ProPoor to CharityFocus and himself became an active CharityFocus volunteer.

Right as Guri and I entered Jayesh's house, fully jet lagged with droopy eyes, we were taken by a striking, life-size, 600 kilogram weighing idol of "Ganesh", an Indian diety.

If we are able to first see "God" behind every door that opens for us, I will ask for nothing else.

"Service doesn't start when you have something to give; it blossoms naturally when you have nothing left to take."

"Real privilege lies in knowing that you have enough."
