THE DELICATE DANCE OF COMPASSIONATE ACTS: P1

I’ve been an activist and philanthropist my whole life. The most common discussion I’ve had over the years revolves around the questions of how to give back or help effectively. Closely behind the frequency of that question is the question of whether or not one should engage in ANY philanthropic activities if they desire to self-actualize. What about all the negative energy?

I hope you’ll join me as I toil with the topics of politics, philanthropy, self-actualization, consciousness and various other elements of this complicated and profoundly important dance of compassionate acts. I see it as a medium for communing with Spirit, of deepening the human experience. But balance is required, and that, is the delicate dance.

This podcast is the most personal one I’ve created, and I think it may be the most important, thus far. It’s going to be a series, and I hope you’ll join me for the journey.

BEST MOMENT

A choice to not be involved is a choice to play a role in perpetuating the problems you see in society.
