Daily quote and Reflection: Empathy and Openness Key to Meaningful Living

Quote: My experience and observations confirm that the key to Meaningful Living philosophy is the practice of empathy and open communications. 

Reflection: I do not deny, however, that it is not always easy to stay on this route. I want to do everything I can to raise the understanding of what our problems are and taking constructive action to solve them.  I mean chiefly the kind of relations that exist between the “have and have-nots”, between the powerful and the weak, the healthy and the sick, the young and the elderly, adults and children, businesspeople and customers, men and women, teachers and students, policeman and citizens, and so on… The idea that the world might be actually changed by the force of respect and truth, the power of the word, the strength of free and open discussion, and responsibility to act for the benefit of all citizens– my longing for fairness, caring and justice for all. I will call this servant leadership or “the just life”. Trying to make life more pleasant, more interesting, more varied, and more bearable for all is my purpose in life.”
