I don’t want that

I understand, but I don’t want that. I don’t want fame; I am beyond wanting fortune. I want influence, but not acknowledgment: in the sense that I want to contribute to the long term betterment of the human project.

We who converse across generations

With whom else might we converse, we who converse across the generations? What are the questions about which to converse? What questions would lead us to a higher humanity?

What is higher humanity? What are our highest aspects? Who are our exemplars and why do we esteem them? Lincoln, Gandhi, Jesus, Gautama, Tubman for examples. They showed us the best in ourselves. What best? Caring. Kindness. Big-heartedness. Strength in these. Vulnerability and humanness. Speaking to all of us….

So perhaps we can write biographies of human people. Or simply write why we revere these people. Pebbles in the forest, a trail to follow.
