Giving Ourselves Permission . . . to Not Know What to Do with Ken D:
How could we possibly know what to do? Pioneers crossing the deserts, plains, mountains, and rivers of totally uncharted territory with no map would understand. And they’d probably have more compassion for us than we’re giving ourselves.

Conscious Leadership-
Pandemic Sees Brand Leaders Putting Purpose Before Profit:
While the government stalls under pressure to provide necessary aid to the millions affected by COVID-19, a silver lining to this pandemic is being revealed as more and more businesses exemplify efforts to put people before profit.

Creatives Helping Us Elevate Humanity-
Stefon Harris — Vibraphonist, Educator, Thinker — Teaches Empathy From The Bandstand:
Stefon Harris is about a lot more than creating music. “The vibraphone, in my opinion, is just a bunch of metal and wood,” he says. “It’s not that important. Instruments are just tools. What’s important is the mission behind the individual who’s utilizing the tool. My ultimate passion is about the proliferation of empathy.”

“The most important aspect of the practice of grateful living is trust in life.
Every human being every day has to make a practical choice between trusting life or not trusting life.
Again and again in life, one is tempted to distrust and fear.
Fear and distrust—this is the same.”
–Brother David
