Change and Growth!
East Jerusalem, 25 February 2013
‘The only sure way to avoid making mistakes is to have no new ideas.’ ― Albert Einstein
Today is the day to thank all those who have followed Mindfulness for NGOs over the last 2 years of its start-up phase. The journey continues to be interesting and full of learning, hence the leap into a new home where you are all invited to join!
The new website contains articles and unconventional musings aimed at idealist, free-spirited (and at times ‘slightly jaded’) professionals, who value the importance of reflection and action.
The ‘voyage’ continues with the words of Greek poet Kavafis* in mind:
When you set out for Ithaka
ask that your way be long,
full of adventure, full of instruction.
Pray that the road is long.
That the summer mornings are many, when,
with such pleasure, with such joy
you will enter ports seen for the first time;
Have Ithaka always in your mind.
Your arrival there is what you are destined for.
But don’t in the least hurry the journey.
Better it last for years
With these inspiring horizons in spirit, yalla onwards and upwards! The world is a tough and amazing place!
