The gift of today

We're looking at stories that have lasted the test of time, like the Ramayana, the Mahabharata and the Bible. That's proof of their effectiveness. Devdutt Pattanaik, Chief Belief Officer at Future Group in Mumbai
It is Sunday. A beautiful, blue sky Sunday. A light breeze tickles the branches of the pine tree outside my office window. Squirrels cavort across the grass. My heart leaps joyously into the day.

It is a new world kind of day. A new perspective in being. A new opportunity to take flight.

This day is a present. Life is its gift. Every moment of it. And I am off to cherish my gift today. To share in laughter and light and love. so that this gift of mine will shine with yours and create a beautiful light to live by.

And, a special gift of words and myth from Devdutt Pattanaik in his Ted Talk -- East vs. West -- the myths that mystify.

Nameste.

So much in this wonderful talk. Pattanaik is engaging and wry. I just love his "Indian headshake".
