Society does not simply run on greed and aggression, but on an invisible network of love and goodwill. It is within this context that my father considered the simple act of sharing a meal and conversing to be the most advanced spiritual training. As we eat and talk, we relax our senses and touch the goodness that is omnipresent. This underlying force is the beating heart of humanity, and in this heart lies our future.
