Greetings Somit Makar!!

Welcome to a Better-World! :-)

It's wonderful to make your aquaintance and
I totally agree with your comments, below,
regarding the first steps in making this
world a better place...including the importance
of taking concrete action. When you use the
phrase 'concrete action', are you making a
distinction between our DOING and our BEING?
Or, perhaps the better question would be,
Is there a distinction, for you, around
doing and being?

I am of the mind that as each of us as individvuals
become committed to the intention to create a
better world that we are, indeed, inspired to
act in ways that support and move in the direction
of that intention.

And joining a group of others with that intention
increases the power, the inspiration, and the
actions exponentially!

Making assumptions, even when making them based
on past experience, is still...making things up.

Today I listened, purposefully at a deeper level, without
giving credence to any previous assumptions I
had around a certain individual...and I was
quite amazed at how differently they appeared to
be showing up for me! I was more than delighted to
discover that we share some very similar values -
and I was previously unaware of that due to my

For me, choosing to listen to this person in a new way,
was an act that contributed to a better world. :-)

So now, I wonder, what's something you are doing (or
being) today to contribute to a better world?

I know we will all be richer and wiser by following
your suggestion that we let each other know!

thank you Somit,

~~Mary K
