    Why are you here?



    The biggest challenge for me is to truly acknowledge that I have no real power to change anyone else or anyone else's life other than my own. By existing and being whatever kind of person I am, I (as well as everyone else) affect those around me. We all affect each other.

    So, I reach out to express who I am and continue the process of becoming. It is only by exchanging our thoughts and ideas that we continue to evolve. At any given moment there are choices to be made. And none of us knows what will happen tomorrow.

    The process expressed in "Ishmael" and "My Ishmael" (haven't yet read "Story of B") is one of questions. It is by questioning our choices that we can begin to change them.

    Dialogue is part of the questioning process. It is imperative that an ongoing, and eventually intensive, dialogue about world-affecting choices take place. The internet seems the perfect place for that dialogue and this seems the perfect site.

    Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?

    Be gentle and patient with yourself and others. New ideas are often difficult to acclimate to.

    We are all teachers and students, often at the same time.
