I spent the last couple of weeks in an ashram in India. While there, I got to experience the culture, the people and their spiritual foundation. It was an adventure of a lifetime, and I am so grateful for it.

You might think that I would come back very grateful to live in the U.S. with all the material comforts we have here, and you would be right. I am grateful. At the same time, I had the chance to see how little we really need to be okay, and that while the people I met did not have as much “stuff” as I do, they had something even more valuable — a richness in spirit. And that richness in spirit makes all the difference. Some may be what we would consider “poor,” but they are rich in other ways.

It certainly makes a huge difference in how deeply you connect with your audience, whatever form your communication takes. Sharing that richness of your spirit can move mountains. Think about all the powerful speakers you know. What do you respond to? For more thoughts on this, click on this video!
