I took this journey last spring, and wrote the following blogs before the earthquakes. We start out in England where I was born. It’s spring and the birds are calling the morning into being with their beautiful bird song. There is actually something very different about a place just because of the birds. English bird song is very sing songy It’s high-pitched and warbly, like a chorus of school children excited to go on a field trip. The grass is verdant green and the trees are bright and fresh. Daffodils, tulips and daisy’s are showing their blooms to the world as if to say, look its a new dawn and everything is all well.

The journey we took was to Everest Base Camp, via New Delhi, Kathmandu, Nepal and Tibet. We visited monasteries and saw colourful dress and monks wearing saffron and deep red robes. We saw prayer wheels and were open to new environments. And like any journey, it is all about attitude. Do we look at everything from new eyes or are we going to be expecting things to be the way we want them to be? Are we going to be the very best guests in these countries that we will visit or are we going to put our own expectations onto the people and places? My hope is that we will go as new-born babies, wide-eyed and no expectations.

Today, let’s look at the world as if from a new place. Imagine we are visiting this place for the very first time. Lets treat our surroundings and the people we meet with grace and deference. We do not want to disturb the status quo. We want to be amazing guests in this place. We want to handle everything with care and pay attention to what needs to be done. Just for today, we will be the best guests on the planet. We will care, and we will enjoy our caring attitude on this wonderful journey of life.

I believe we all want to love and be loved. If we are not in love or being loved, then what are we doing here? I choose to wake up every morning filled with love and so I make it my mantra, "My purpose in life is to be loving." Check out my books published by McGraw-Hill.
