James Stewart Showing Us

There was a pleasantly long interview with Brittany of Renda radio today.  In the course of her 
questions, she came up with a classic one, “Of all your experiences in this walk, what stands out?”  And so, I had to think swiftly of what was dominant.  I thought in terms of today.  Since Indiana is the hometown of superstar actor James Stewart, with a sizeable museum dedicated to him and a local airport also in his name, what came to mind was what I read today. Here was a leading man for a number of decades, and yet, as a silver screen hero, he was also a hero off-screen.  He was married to one woman for his entire life-time and didn’t flirt with other glamour queens.  In other words he held a high calibre of morals and so I thought that that would be inspirational for people.

I went on to explain to Brittany that my walk is to promote a higher state of consciousness and if such moral values can be achieved by our deeds, whether past or present, then as a human race we can boast that perhaps we are advancing on some level.

The interview flowed smoothly.  So did today’s walk. The moderate temperature in the upper 40’s and lower 50’s as well as greetings from motorists and home-owners who happened to see me and Tre’von ambling along made it so.  At one point a couple of women pulled over and mistook me for being one of the Tibetan monks who are visiting town to demonstrate a mandala.  

“What’s that?  Other monks are in town?  Oh well, the more the merrier!”

In the evening, our crew drove to a group meeting in Pittsburgh for a summary presentation of the Bhagavad-gita.  The simple and brief explanation behind the wisdom of the Gita is to know the Divine and hence find out more about yourself.

May the Source be with you!
