I embrace all.

There is trouble, beauty, injustice, justice, racism, love and so much more in this world.

When someone makes trouble we shouldn’t react with trouble.

Trouble only causes more trouble.

And that’s actually easy.

Get in reacting mode, and make yourself lead by your emotions.

So what is difficult and at the same time rewarding?

Not reacting. Maybe one of the most challenging things!

Be a radiance of peace.

Be that kind person.

A teller of truth.

Show love and kindness to those who need it most.

The Persian poet Hafiz wrote in the 14th century this poem:

Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth,

'You owe me.'

Look what happens with a love like that.

It lights the whole sky.

What does this poem really mean? Is it about the relationship between sun and earth? It might be.

What it also means is this.

Give without expecting.

Listen with interest in the person you are listening to.

Work as it is your own company.

Act with kindness.

Lead with your heart.
