Three Key Points:
We become more powerful when we join in community. Our being helps others in their being.
All of us are more similar than we are different. A person is only a person through other people. That’s a condition of being human. We are cells of the same organism, there’s no you, there’s no me, there’s only we.
Every one of us has the power to tap into intuition, the knowledge and guidance of God, the Universe, or our higher selves.

33:00 — When you’re a foreigner to a country you can see the blind spots in culture. Some people would never think that certain things were even possible because we get wrapped up in local cultures.
36:49 — Keeping yourself from sharing your gifts with the world is a terrible mistake, because we are social creatures that like to share wisdom with each other to better our lives.
