The Opponent

You have to logically believe in the concept of God in order to serve God. If you don’t believe in God, are you going to serve God? Never! But you know what’s really amazing? You don’t have to believe in the opponent – you don’t have to believe in Satan, our adversary, in order to […]

Woman of The Year

What I would like to say to all women here today is this: Women have been so oppressed for so long they believe what men have to say about them. They believe they have to back a man to get the job done. And there are some very good men worth backing, but not because […]

Lost Key

One man lost his key to his house one night. He started to look for it on the street outside. A passerby asked him what he was doing. “I’m looking for the key to my house.” Answered the man. “Where did you lose it?” She asked. “Somewhere inside of my house.” “Well, if that’s the […]

On Education

Education is a big challenge now. If we don’t change the way we teach, 30 years later, we will be in trouble. Because the way we teach, the thing we teach to our kids, are the things from the past 200 years. It is knowledge-based. Yet, we cannot teach our kids to compete with machines. They […]

Our Contradictions

We are in such a hurry to grow up, and then we long for our lost childhood. We make ourselves ill earning money, and then spend all our money on getting well again. We think so much about the future that we neglect the present, and thus experience neither the present nor the future. We […]

Priceless Stones

Angelus Novus (New Angel)

A Klee painting named Angelus Novus shows an angel looking as though he is about to move away from something he is fixedly contemplating. His eyes are staring, his mouth is open, his wings are spread. This is how one pictures the angel of history. His face is turned toward the past. Where we perceive […]

Sandstorm

Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn’t something that blew in from far away, something […]

Diamond Inside of You

It takes great pressure to turn a piece of coal into a glorious diamond. I say this frequently because, for me, it is a reminder that the pressures we all face are for our greater good. With each passage in life, we add another sparkling layer to who you are. With each test, we grow […]
