Essentially, my entire life is encapsulated in a single question. What does it mean to live on the basis of Truth? That is, to really live beyond our illusions of separation, our inherited myths, our cherished beliefs, and our uninspected presumptions? If we can really do this, it opens up extraordinary possibilities for taking the totality of humankind and the earth into account in everything we do.
We bear witness to a unique moment in human history. Even in the midst of untold suffering, every human heart, at its depth, already knows what it means to be happy and free. To unleash this power of happiness and freedom requires great leadership, great courage, great humility, and great sacrifice. Enabling such leadership is the process to which my life is dedicated.
