The Perspective – April 2021

The Perspective

Hello Everyone,

My hope is that all of you are enjoying the break in weather these past few weeks. Spring truly is a beautiful time of the year. It is often a time when we regroup, refresh, and as well to clean out and get rid of the old and bring in some new.

Last month we ended on “Ethics”, and I would like to speak just briefly on it as we near the end of April. The definition of the word, “Ethics is based on well-founded standards of right and wrong that prescribe what humans ought to do, usually in terms of rights, obligations, benefits to society, fairness, or specific virtue.” * It provides a fundamental approach in how we look at the world and contribute to its success in helping others – we – all share in “ethics”.

We will see you next month as we continue this discussion in depth on “The Perspective”. Until then try to stay safe and blessed.

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them.”
Albert Einstein
