Children, Geometry and all things Sacred

DSCN3379DSCN3347Last week I celebrated the opportunity of a lifetime, an experience I will co-create whenever and wherever possible! It was a morning hanging out with 11-year olds who were cooperating in what was billed ‘Science Olympics’ where teams co-created by folding 2D geometry templates into 3D forms, then using these fundamental ‘blocks’ to build a structure! What was magical was when they figured out how to make it dynamic! The City Mayor put in an appearance and shared with me, the brother of my heart, Tamir Ashman, and others, how he knew something special was going on when the kids ignored him! Telling us that they usually stop and drop what they’re doing, that morning they were all but ignoring him! That day produced rainbows inside and out, and reminded me how such Technicolored gifts can appear out of nowhere. Better yet, it was another lesson in remembering that the value of what is true priceless, and that the most precious are seldom material things.

For my friends who are today experiencing sorrow or loss, may you realize that the light shining through the heart and eyes of those who love you has the power to open the rainbow and do far more than renew your hope; together you have all necessary ingredients to birth the beauty that inspires visions so you can breathe life into long forgotten dreams. Find opportunities to co-create rainbows in your day today, remembering that they form when water, light, space and time agree to cooperate in the birth of beauty. If your ‘water’ is a tear, allow it to melt illusion and help open you to love. Every day I remember that each breath is a gift, a timeless moment that is filled with magic when I am open, willing and able to see. Let me encourage you to take or make time today to bask in awe as beauty arises from the ethers of your essence, and allow your heart to be nurtured by memories of love that arise from the mists of time so your spirit will once again feel the freedom that comes from having the wind under your wings.

Compassion defining Humanity

Yesterday I made an international flight and due to traffic en route to the airport, the run to the plane was nonstop. Taking my seat I was aware that there was something unusual about the man sitting beside me, but I wasn’t sure what it was. At some point during the flight I realised that he’d been staring at the same page of a magazine for a very long time, his eyes open. My feeling was that he seemed lost, and my thought was that he was grieving.

Twenty minutes from our destination he suddenly turned to me, grabbed my arm and demanded to know, “What have you done with my wife?!”
