What negative experience in your life are you most happy that happened to you?
My wife and I bought our first home. Six days after we moved in, somebody tried to burn it down. They came in days after they stole hand carved fireplace mantles stainless windows, my bike, TV. We move back in to this house with no heat, no hot water, no alarm system, no electricity, no plumbing and no kitchen. And so I understood gratitude of the neighbors giving us food helping us figure out what we could buy. We didn’t even know anybody in the neighborhood. People brought us things just out of the compassion of their hearts. I understood the interdependence of things and also less dependent on material things. We had few dollars in the bank. We just gotten married a year and a half ago; this was our dream house. We had to really see the bigger picture and understand grace at that deeper level. I’m very glad that happened to me and me it made me a better person.
What is one thing everyone listening to this episode should go and do today?
Talk to strangers. Talk to people in your Uber. Talk to people at the cashier. Talk to people in a bank line. Understand that everybody is a soul. Just like you, everybody is a human being that deserves respect. Most people actually want to talk and once they do, you can find out brilliant, amazing things and you might find out somebody may becomes your long lost friend or your wife or your business partner.
What advice would you give to someone who is feeling stuck or unsure about their career path?
Quiet minds go deep. Ask yourself what am I here to do? Why am I here on Earth right now in this lifetime? Wait until you get the answer. It might not happen immediately. But if you keep asking that question and understand that you you are loved, no matter what you do, if you can start from the point of view of unconditional love the same way you would want to love your child love yourself, then the question doesn’t become so stressful.
The Infinity Gauntlet gives the holder the ability to snap their fingers and make anything their mind can imagine into reality. Here’s the catch though: it generally costs the wearer who snaps their fingers their lives. I have this gauntlet, and I’m offering it to you. What would you want to happen?
The world becomes sustainable because we all understand the sacredness of life and are the responsibility we have to all living things.
