When we travel, even if it is locally, we learn how others live and the challenges they face daily. In turn, our understanding of the world expands beyond our neighbourhood, community or country.
Before I get to Ghandi's Top Ten Rules, I would like to share one of my favourite quotes from Henry Beston, the author of The Outermost House. It certainly puts our existence on the planet in perspective.
"For a moment in time of night we have a glimpse of ourselves and of our world islanded in a stream of stars - pilgrims of mortality, voyaging between horizons across the eternal seas of space and time."
Ghandi's guide was originally printed in ideapod.com Perhaps his suggestions will help a world suffering as we 'voyage between horizons across the eternal seas of space and time.'
1. Change yourself first.
2. You are the driving force in your life.
4. Results require action.
5. Pay attention to the here and now.
6. We are all human.
