Hi Raam, I think the answer has two sides. One is us finding our own uniqueness and calling. The other is connecting with others. The magic is in the meeting.

I think we find real contact with others satisfying.

I also think that our situation affects us – and (especially together) we can take action to change our situation. I think we are social-individuals as well as individual-individuals. (This is clumsy but I haven’t found a better way to say it.)

I think it is essential to start with stuff where people can see they make a difference. This will usually be very small things – but people need to see that they can make a real difference (if only a small one). This is why child sponsorship (for all its difficulties) is so attractive. Once people have done something the next step on the path is much easier.

These are my thoughts on the medicine.
