Hello Everyone! I’d like to take this opportunity to share my motivational philosophy of life, so that you have a sense of my worldview relative to new ways of leadership.
What is your dream?
Many of us have been to the mountaintop, we have seen from many lenses a world that can harm and destroy, people who treat each other as if they are inferior, separate and cannot truly see that we are in this together…like ripples in an ocean, impacting across the globe.
Life on Earth can be beautiful and amazing and I have witnessed both the horrors and the joys and so many things in between. Inspired by spirit, I was called to take my dreams and make them real. I was called to Egypt during their Arab Spring, when Mubarak stepped down…a time of danger, passion, a time of visionary hope…to hear the voices of the people and what their dreams were. What I heard was a people who wanted what most people want…to love, be loved, create a meaningful life and to know that we are not alone. I left that sacred land hearing these words from a 90 year old man, desiring to fulfill his dream with non-violence, “I am proud to be Egyptian, but I am even more proud to be human.” In the face of adversity, this man, like the Dalai Lama, could take joy in hope and surrender to the beauty way, our evolutionary dream path…to honor all sentient beings from the personal to the planetary.
With Deep Gratitude--Joyce
