I continue to read Tao Te Ching – here is another quote I loved. Is this what Ram Dass means when he says ‘I can do nothing for you but work on myself… you can do nothing for me but work on yourself!’?
Therefore the Master says:
I do nothing,
and people become good by themselves.
I seek peace,
and people take care of their own problems.
I do not meddle in their personal lives,
and the people become prosperous.
I let go of all my desires,
and the people return to the Uncarved Block.
I’ve recently learned this interesting and very powerful phrase that I now use to reframe everyday encounters. Every time when I interact with someone face to face, on a call, via email (especially email) I remind myself:
The Fab 5 brought joy to many people lately with their Netflix show Queer Eye. They are lovely, authentic, not afraid to be vulnerable and are here to make us love ourselves. Plus the show theme (below) by Betty Who is amazing. Be you! Things keep getting better 😉

I read my first book by Ram Dass called The Only Dance There Is and it’s amazing. One of those books that makes you wiser, that shortcuts you to insight. I might now have to read every book of his! I wanted to share this 10-minute talk by Ram Dass on how to love yourself, a key theme on this blog in the last year. Very useful advice.
So I am reading my first book by Ram Dass. And I loved this quote where he explains the meaning of the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra:
