I am so incredibly happy that you are here. This website has been years in the making, and it is with great joy that we have finally launched. As we say in my faith tradition, Alhamdulillah!
(All praise and thanks to God.)
Every word on this site has come from my heart to the screen, and my teammates have lovingly encouraged me to keep writing. What my heart is moved to say on this momentous occasion is:
Ultimately, the work of CTW aims to eradicate the epidemic of digital addiction and its’
far-reaching, life-threatening consequences by reinstating into life and society,
the very foundation-stones of what it means to be a human being:
-to practice mindfulness
-to actively use our intelligence
-to stay connected to the sacred
-to recognize our shared humanity
-to cultivate virtue
Whereas our programs are designed to be educational and practical, and our CTW Community Newsletter is written to be timely and informational, this Founder’s Blog is meant to be intellectual and inspirational.
Indeed, my intention is to inspire you to THINK DEEPLY about what kind of human being you want yourself and your loved ones to be, what kind of world you want to live in, and ultimately, what you want to contribute.
The truth is, EVERY HUMAN BEING has a divine assignment to carry out. So many of our youth are adrift and miserable because they have been severed from their intrinsic sacred link. As a result, they are suffering deeply from a profound lack of meaning and purpose in their lives.
This widespread existential crisis is tragic and heartbreaking, and we intend to address it at length in future programs, once our young people are safely out of harm’s way, and solidly grounded in the practice of mindfulness.
For now, here is an aphorism for you to ponder that has been a longtime favorite of mine, because it has proven itself to be absolutely true as I have lived my life over 60+ years.
It was written by the Indian Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore.
I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and saw that life was service.
I acted and behold, service was joy.
Love & Blessings,
