Sarandon & "The Power of One"
This is a really good interview with Susan Saradon. She talks about how giving back is what love and spirituality is all about. She talks about teaching her children about "The Power of One." There are a few clips you can listen to also. I mentioned in a previous entry she is also on the cover of Breathe Magazine currently. I subscribe to it, being in Tai Chi etc. The article is similar to the interview link above, but worth reading also.
A few of my favorite quotes from the interview link above:
"If you walk down the street and see someone in a box, you have a choice. That person is either the other and you're fearful of them, or that person is an extension of your family. And that makes you at home in that world and not fearful. So really it's very self-serving."
"You meet the most extraordinary people who are doing something that's very empowering. Not only that can make a difference in another's life, it makes a difference in your life to know the power of one. To know that once you decide to look at life outside of the narrow limits of just your world and start to understand that you can make a difference in very simple ways--in volunteering and all the way up to bigger world problems. "
