A Letter From My Father


Yesterday I was emailed this video by a young film maker named Abhishek Hans with a request that I share it with you here on my blog. I get a lot of these kind of requests and, because this is a personal blog, I turn down most of what's offered. Typically the videos are fundraisers or product promotions - and I want to stay away from that here. But this video told a story that touched me quite deeply. I thought that their were many messages conveyed in three short minutes. Please let me know what you think and, if you like it, please share it widely.

Well, gah.

I wonder how many of us are holding misconceptions and old beliefs so close to our hearts, we're closing off love?

This was beautiful and sad. And it clawed at me because for months before my only brother passed away, we weren't speaking. Or rather, I wasn't speaking to him, because I was holding onto to old anger. We had just begun to reconnect and to find our way back to beloved when he died.

It is one of my only and deepest regrets.

So moving. So much to think about and apply to my own heart and circumstances. Thank you so much for sharing, Dave.

Great video. Very thought provoking. It makes us realize that it is truly up us to impact the world around us. We shouldn't wait for other people to change or our circumstances to change! We must take responsibility for ourselves.
