I began to ask the question with others about ‘What Matters Most?’ and one of these people that I inquired is my 22 year old son. He of course is an extraordinary young man living in San Francisco becoming a graphic designer at California College of the Arts. Without going on and on about what it is to be a mother of a talented, creative and driven young man, I will quote what he spoke. We were sitting at his favorite taco bistro in Potrero Hill District having this rather deep conversation over fish taco’s and burrito’s!
‘When you are satisfied and truly fulfilled in your life you loose the desire to seek gratification through other people’s pain and turmoil. There comes a point in your life when you want others to succeed as much as you do. It is our true humanly instinct to be on top socially, especially with people we are close with—-When you hurt another, your are hurting yourself, as we are all ONE and connected to ensure our passion and evolution.’
