Some ideas are easy to communicate. Others are not as easily embraced. Our guest for this Messaging on a Mission episode is Paul Rodney Turner, founder of Food for Life Global, the world’s largest vegan food relief with 211 projects in 60 countries serving up to 2 million meals daily. We hear about his journey from monk to the leader of a global nonprofit (as well as billiards champion). Plus, we learn his views on the energetic connection between all living things—and how that connection can help us end world hunger.
There’s plenty of food in the world. In fact, the world can produce, the world can feed something like two to three times the population, but they didn’t ask the big question of why is there. I felt like we did have the answer. The reason is that we don’t see ourselves as a global family.
The solution is that if we see ourselves as a global family, then problems like world hunger will disappear. Maybe not overnight, but very fast. That is the solution to all the problems in the world.
To help someone see your point of view, treat them as if there were a friend you are encouraging them to see things from a different perspective.
