Watch the Film DreamMakers to Get A Glimpse of #Racism, Love and Hope

Image
If you want to get a glimpse into what racism, love and hope, feels like, upfront and personal, I invite you to view, "DreamMakers", a film directed by Dove Suau, a brillant Puerto Rican director. This film takes you on the journey of three families: a Black Family that navigated through over 6 decades of racism and discrimination, (my family and I), a Mexican American man from California, who served 10 years of a life sentence for a crime he did not commit, and two Puerto Rican communities, the South Bronx and Chicago, who reclaimed their dignity and identity by transforming themselves from the inside out. BTW, Mario Rocha, was exonerated and freed from prison and is living his dream.

Festival Digital de Negocios Conscientes, (Conscious Business Digital Festival)

Image
It was a wonderful experience closing the virtual “Festival Digital de Negocios Conscientes”, (Conscious Business Festival), hosted by Grupo Anga, on April 9, 2020. Once again I was inspired by Brazilian entrepreneurs capacity to value people and the planet. 
This is another example of a rapidly emerging global movement rippling across the world. Conscious citizens, conscious consumers, conscious communities, conscious cities and evensome conscious countries are demanding that businesses provide products and services that supports the health and wellbeing of people and the planet.
The Coronavirus is serving as a catalyst to awaken people's conscious. This will increasingly create a greater demand for businesses to operate with the Greater Good in mind. #Conscious Business
I'm wishing you all good health, strength and love during these extraordinary times.

First, please know that I am praying that all of you and your love ones are healthy, safe and sound. For anyone who has contracted this insidious virus or whose love ones are suffering, I am praying for a full and rapid recovery.


The time I have spent in quarantine has been frustrating, challenging and even scary at times; it has also been a gift. It has forced me to slow down and inspired me to learn and reflect on the world we have inherited and perpetuated. I believe it is also giving all of us the time, space and compelling reasons to envision a new and better world. Then maybe, together, we will find the will and the courage to redesign and reboot our society.

I am thrilled to share with you the inaugural issue of the Conscious Business Magazine, a new addition to the Light on Light family of publications. Conscious Business Magazine is dedicated to advancing the global movement of transforming business for a flourishing world. 
I feel honored to have an article in this inspiring an…

It’s Time Wake Up! "We The People", Literally, Hold the Whole World in Our Hands

Image
I am usually an unapologetic optimist. My friends and colleagues generally describe me as hopeful, petering on Pollyannaish, however, given the state of our world, I feel compelled to speak-up and speak-out with a sense of urgency!
We are facing an existential threat and we must act now to save the planet and ourselves! We The People must wake-up and recognize that the man-made climate crisis, has become a climate emergency!The severe environmental crisis is rooted in the dysfunctional social and cultural crisis, which has been exacerbated over the last three years, and is fueling the acceleration of greed, fear, hate and conflict around our world. Most importantly, the spiritual and moral crisis catalyzed by many of the leaders of countries around the world, is deeply dividing us and causing us to self-destruct.
I hear so many people feeling hopeless and helpless. Many people believe that our leaders today do not represent the majority of us, so we can’t control the chaos and conflicts…
