Make your life a seed of love that you sow in this blessed earth upon which you were born. Spend all your living years watering and tending it, until it grows into a massive tree providing shade and sustenance for future wayfarers.

A well-lived life has meaning and purpose. Beyond the quest for personal achievement at the expense of other people’s happiness; beyond our cancerous greed and selfishness; and beyond our divisive ethnic and religious bigotry, there is a path that leads to personal and communal rebirth, and the social change and development that we all crave.
