A key belief in launching the “cord to connect the world” initiative is best described by a quote from Eknath Easwaran’s book, The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living, where he says, “We are surrounded by creative powers, as surrounded as we are by air and light and gravitation. It is only when we fail to ally ourselves with the forces of light that they are unable to support us.”
In order to tap into these creative powers, we are reminded of the importance of being in tune or in alignment with light forces. We must strive to put ego issues aside and give and share freely with others, especially with those on the bottom of the socio-economic pyramid. We need to tap into the creativity of the villagers themselves.
