He was a teacher in truest since of the word and firmly believed that neither religion or politics would transform people’s thinking, but rather a revolution of the psyche would be the catalysts. He frequently took comfort in seeing things in a singular wonderment, devoid of selfishness. Empathy plays a powerful role in his view of the world and seeking first to understand, before trying to be understood is clearly part of the process of how he operates. For one to listen to the whispers of their heart, they must give over to seeking to understand completely another person’s view and to do this you must commit the entirety of mind, body, and soul.
