MANIFESTING MICHELANGELO - the story of a modern-day miracle....
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
I would love to have been present to have experienced Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and to have the opportunity to ask him, “Even in the face of profound intimidation and threats from an ignorant and oppressive majority, what is your spiritual practice that steadies you to persevere in your important work?”
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. Not a single person, but the group of sacred activists who are raising all over the planet, looking around, seeing ignorance or obstacles, deciding to make changes, connecting to the transformative force, and getting off their couches and actually acting. Their actions are manifesting changes across all fields of human endeavor for the benefit of themselves and their larger family, humanity.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. To fully remember the unlimited mind that children are born with before the material world shackles our hearts and souls with limiting thoughts. The great philosopher Charles Baudelaire said that “Genius is no more than childhood recaptured at will.”
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. Michelangelo, the artist who knew that the connection to the divine can be so powerful that it can transform nature. Also, Galileo, who made a discovery that was initially received as heresy and shortly became what everyone knew to be the truth. And probably most profoundly, the person who took this sacred practice into action, Martin Luther King, Jr. who said, “Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
