What Have We Become and Who Do We Want to Be?

Two totally unrelated events of the past week converged unexpectedly for me and led me to some deep introspection.

First came the college cheating scandal, where wealthy and influential parents, including CEO’s, two Hollywood actresses and a legendary fashion designer, schemed to get their children into universities through fraud, bribes and lies.  According to court records, parents paid to help their children cheat on college entrance exams and to falsify athletic records of students to enable them to secure admission to some of the country’s elite universities, including UCLA, USC, Stanford, Yale and Georgetown.

Ripples in a pond at sunset

Soul Space

We find our soul-space by the clues

We’ve left before, and enter with a leap,

Like a pebble dropping into the placid lake,

Suddenly we are at the center of waves rippling

Beyond the humdrum of the day to day

Toward possibilities we haven’t imagined.

Our breath spreads silently outward

Be Like the Leaf

Be like the leaf,


Without a plan,

Letting go.

Just spinning

And turning

In the delicate embrace

Of the wind,

As uncle Bob led us across the snow-covered pasture, I looked up and saw Venus shining brightly just above the lavender and pink-streaked horizon.  I took a deep breath, and as the cold night air surged into my lungs, I felt a sense of adventure.  Down the hillside we slid to the edge of the pond.  My brother Matt and my four cousins and I began strapping on our ice-skates as Bob began to gather a kindling for a fire.  The full moon was rising behind the pines across the pond from us.

I turned my gaze upward to behold a most clear star-lit sky. I felt as if he were looking out into the farthest reaches of the Milky Way.

The journey of life is about being aware of the essence of who we are – and consciously bringing forth that essence in our daily lives moment by moment.

“We need schools that provide young people with well-structured spaces in which to discover who they are and what they care deeply about.
