that feeling. that you can not name.

I just spent the last 2 hours listening to episodes of Kind World. A beautiful podcast celebrating humanity at its best, packed with compassion and heart-forward humans. While I still have many ore episodes to discover, this one, about a kind man called Karim, who built an invisible community with this acts of kindness, really moved me.

I am so happy to see my friend Bas Berkhout for once in front of the camera.
I met Bas many moons ago when he filmed a Like Knows Like with me. During a day of filming, I was able to plant the seed that he should leave Holland and move to NYC. He did and joined our creative co-working community. We’ve been fast friends ever since. Love this talented man.
I have recently been trying to live my life more open heartedly. This Mudra Bracelet which will serve as a wonderful reminder. The mudra is a spiritual hand gesture made by the Buddha. Ordered!
“I believe in a humanistic enterprise: business should comply in the noblest manner with all the rules of ethics that man has devised over the centuries. I dream about a form of humanistic modern capitalism with strong ancient roots, where profit is made without harm or offence to anyone, and part of it is set aside for any initiative that can really improve the condition of human life: services, schools, places of worship and cultural heritage.”
“The purpose of capitalism is to allow our society to become better. A culture that opens doors for and nurtures the people we care about.
The issues of our time are education, corruption, access, infrastructure, civility and the downstream effects of the work we do.”
