Where do you stand?

Are you conflicted by religious and moral imperative to help but are unable to do for because the world is so confusing? Do you find that when you have an idea it is mothballed by damning rhetoric popularized by politicians and the media?
Dan's talk lucidized much of the problems I have been unable to put my finger on. I'm a sociology student and musicology student and I object to subversive advertise placement in movies and tv programmes.I object to the condemning rhetoric from our politicians which condemns the helpless into cycles of poverty, as Dan Pallotta helped make sense of the confusion is ingrained in our flawed perceptions of what charity actually means. What do other's think?

  • Apr 12 2013: Where do I stand ? Conversation. For me life has been a continous learning experience about self.
    Yes, I have made mistakes in life, some has brought me pain and suffering . But wisdom and knowledge has also come with age, experience and learning.

    It's been exhiliarting to climb on the shoulders of great minds, both philosophy and arts, and also in science.

    But dominating element of this life journey has been my inheritance in spirituality coming from my family roots linked to ancient Hindu cultural heritage of India.

    So, where do I stnad now __In my day to day life pursuits ?

    More Conversaton: I seek to demonstrate the philosophy of wisdom that have evolved over the years in every day liviing as follows:

    Pursuit and demonstrate by example :

    Humanity, Peace, Justice and Dignity for all on a commuity, nation and as "Friends of Earth" .

    I just searched "Boosters Prelude to Our Greece Trade Ambassador Journey_ Fairfax VA Community Vitality Twin" as an example of pursuit of this philosophy.

    Wow ! , several things I have published including a short video on Utube just came up !

    Modern global age, Wow ! .
