I am writing only because I treasure both Charles and the perspectives that come through his writing, and it is important to me to speak up in their defense. Down the street is a center for the blind, where folks who can see, lead around those who cannot. Your words at the Slow Living Summit accompanied by that superb cellist put your message into my bones.
A million times Thank You. This essay was just what a needed in a time of crisis of purpose. With gratitude. I actually reached out to you at the time to ask if you would help out with a review. I am now ready to bring it into the world to be of service and not for the fame. Like you the anticipation, the dreaming felt exciting. The universe had other plans to align my teaching with my values. Thank you for your heartfelt muse; it has served as a mouthsmacking affirmation to pursue my witing with love and vigor.
Huglets Philippa. Thank you for this essay.
It is a joy to read about the smallness of a real life. My real life often feels very small. I am a composer and music teacher in a town with a population of just over 20, After I watched the film, I read the book and have slowly been making my way, as I dare, into treating some of my music life as gift.
I thank you so much for spelling out the philosophical underpinnings to this new way of thinking. You inspire me to have the faith to offer my own work as a gift.

I am looking forward to seeing you and Opera together! So curious about what will evolve — both in the interview and the after affect on her audience. I love her curiosity and ability to connect with people. She has good questions to bring out interesting aspects of the people she interviews. And I always enjoy listening to you interacting with another person as you often do — great stuff emerges..
On a Wing and a Prayer One Woman's Adventure into the Heart of the Rainforest Synopsis
Like an evolutionary shift from single cells to organism. Who know where that will lead. I discovered your work very early when I bumped into The Ascent , loved it and spread the word far and wide. I was so excited when I saw you were doing a workshop in Bali just when it was possible for me to attend. To me it felt like a miracle and my memories of that week are still clear and strong.
You have touched lives — not just by your words but by being your self. What a gift to all of us to understand that aspect of making a difference. These days I mostly sit home, write and draw, and feel bad that I am no longer teaching. Charles — thank you for your humility, for your deep caring, and most of all for continuing to serve as an antenna. Your words are like rich compost in a global field where I pray human consciousness keeps growing, expanding, mutating.here

This piece is a particularly profound gift and an inspiration. Yes, it is important with the comminity and be together with others. If I ever wanted to do anything in life, my father used to always ask me — why do you want to do it? For fame? For influence or to help? No matter how small or big the project was. And I do try, to find out what motivates me.

Thank you Charles for sharing your experience, it is touching. I am beginning to see a growth in the connection of us all and although there is a lot of tragic things happening in the world, all that is happening is waking us up to the need to become closer together. Your words resonate with my experiences, I have become a servant to others over my lifetime and many times have thought that it was not right to be this way. Thank you for having the voice that has once again confirmed that the path we are on is the right one.
Hi Charles, Another wonderful essay from you. Who knows whom or what we may influence, we can only trust fully that we are guided along the way. I did find your thoughts on the need to be important and big so very helpful as I muddle along in my own life, however. Thank you! Certainly in this small corner of Aotearoa I remember your teachings, the Space between Stories weekend and they have given me ongoing guidance in the months since February, with a slow unfolding in my own life.
Thank you for having made the time to come here this year as I continue to be amazed at the synchronicity that allowed me to be there too. So here is for impact in unexpected ways! Be well, Britta. Charles, Thank you for all your wonderful books, talks, podcasts and essays. Your messgaes have enriched my life. Love this. Transition is where we wanna give up in birth, lack self belief etc before the more active pushing stage where we get right down into our full power and push… And we are — rising and shifting and unmistakable gaining momentum.
I agree, your moment with Oprah is a a sign.

The good news of the truth of interconnection, and the path out of this mess that it offers is spreading! How wonderful. Thanks for your contribution — both Charles and anyone else who is reading! I even believe you signed it. I since then gifted it to my friend Paul J..
PJ for short. You see Charles, your books are finding us.. I am so happy, an idea with passion has manifested for you… It is truly so that not only does God see everything.. I wanted to meet a certain person.. I intentionalized it with my passion.. Of course, my dream came true! Charles, this is great news! And your words help me strengthen my commitment. We do all need each other. Thank you so much once again Charles.
I love your candour, your honesty and your willingness to share your life of not-knowing if what you are doing is having any effect at-all.
My life even though I am now 70 is still the same, I do what I do to the best I can, and have to let go of craving to know if what I do makes any difference at all to others or the world. Like you, I have come to see that when I teach , give talks, see clients or babysit my grandchildren, if it fills me with a warm glow, then something is happening somewhere, even if only within my own once closed off heart. Due to trauma and fear I closed my heart as a child to anything but study and work. Both of those I have excelled in, in my own little way, but getting close to people, be it partners, friends or family has felt beyond me until recently.
Yes it truly is the time of seeing that it is time to acknowledge we need each other just as much as we need the air we breathe. Thanks Charles Emma Mary Gathergood. I resonate with your thoughts about sacrificing your peace and quiet after your interview with Oprah. I too will put my book out on to the altar of consciousness this fall and then simply let.
