Hope: Satish Kumar Talking at 42 Acres, Shoreditch, London, April 2017


As promised in my blog Soil Soul Society, about the inaugural 42 Acres talk in their new London venue, here is the You Tube video made at the event, which I attended. I particularly liked Satish’s comments on Hope towards the end:

“Hope is not something which means that I am going to achieve Utopia tomorrow. …   Hope is … I can do something to make a difference. I can take a journey. I can take a few steps to make a difference.  … Hope is not a kind of blind faith that something will turn out … God will change it … [Hope is] active participation in the transformation of the world. That is Hope.  … until the last breath of my life I will be there being as active as I can  … I die in action, participating, rather than dying in worrying about the world.  I want to die in action, not in worry.”

Food for thought and encouragement.  Enjoy the meal.
