Why You Should Prosper Even Though There’s Suffering in the World by Sonya Derian

It is a rare treat to come across such insightful and impacting article on a topic we all think about. Sonya Derian’s article addressing why we should pursue our dreams in a world where there is suffering and want is such an article.

The article appeared on the blog tinybuddha: simple wisdom for complex lives. Sonya is a regular contributor on that blog and has her own wonderful blog at OmFreely.com

I’m pleased to share her wisdom. The article came in response to the following question from a reader.

“… I guess what I’m getting at is if everyone had a choice, treating sewage would be the last thing one would want to do. Isn’t it? Well yes I’m making that judgment. If everyone was Wayne Dyer or that money guru lady Suze Orman, we’d all be reaching fantasy levels of achievement. That is what they seem to be proposing is possible.

Read Sonia’s wondeful response.

Stay inspired!
