Rio+20: Meeting Global Challenges with Hope and Heart
For the last few weeks my thoughts, prayers, and gratitude have been with those attending the United Nations events in Brazil. Imagine: the warm, balmy streets of Rio, filled with a sea of passionate planetary change agents, all part of a thriving global community that is collectively responding in powerful and inspiring ways to the ongoing threats to our Earth. Each person has her/his own story of dedication and commitment. Each is an emissary for all beings, human and otherwise, who can’t be in attendance. Looking into their eyes, you see they are alight with the bright pulse that comes from being in what the Buddha referred to as ‘right action’ and ‘right effort’ in the Noble Eightfold Path.
