By now you've all heard all the news about the Oscars. You know who all the winners are. You've seen the dresses. You've heard the speeches. One speech particularly stood out for me in its spiritual simplicity. (And It wasn't Sean Penn's although he was very good last evening). It was A. R. Rahman, who one two academy awards yesterday for composing the score for the feel-good, movie juggernaut, Slum Dog Millionaire. Upon accepting his award, he said, "I always had a choice between love and hate in my life. And I chose love, and I am here." Sometimes you need moments like this to remind you that love and kindness DO reap rewards --- often bigger ones than you've ever dreamed possible. What do you think? 

Many blessings
