Living in the relative comfort and safety of Cape Town, I sometimes find it really difficult to deal with many of the human right violations and criminal acts taking place globally, and specially back at home.
Each time I read the Venezuelan news or speak to my family over the phone, I just feel helpless and wish there was something I could do. Being a personal development coach and knowing deep in my heart I’m here to be of service puts me in a position of really wanting to make a difference, but not knowing how.
But this all changed last week…
You see, about a year ago I came across a story that touched my heart. The story of Leopoldo Lopez, a Venezuelan political leader who led a non-violent, peaceful demonstration and was later sentenced to nearly 14 years in prison. His message of unity, hope, and optimism completely silenced when he was placed in solitary confinement in violation of his human rights.
The story touched me so deeply, that one morning while practicing my guitar I stumbled upon a catchy melody which began to slowly grow on me. And a few weeks later, while taking a shower one morning, the lyrics began to flow. That’s how ‘Un Solo Corazón’ (A Single Heart) was born.
Today, I’d like to share with you both the song and the music video I’m dedicating to Leopoldo Lopez, and his cause. I couldn’t have done it without the love and support of an awesome group of friends here in Cape Town who joined me on this little adventure.
It’s been a labor of love requiring me to really stretch out of my comfort zone, and sacrifice my little fears and insecurities for a cause much greater than I am. This, I believe, is the key to your life’s greatest achievements!
To me, Leopoldo Lopez represents the voice of a new heart-centered, leadership consciousness being born in this planet. The same consciousness I’m committed to help others awaken, develop and nurture through the Academy for Applied Heart Intelligence.
The next training will take place in Cape Town, South Africa this coming October 16 to November 15, 2015. You can learn more about it at this link.
If you enjoyed the video, I’d love it if you could please ‘like it’, leave a comment below, and share it with someone you love.
Have a wonderful week ahead, and thanks for reading my blog, and allowing me to share my Path with you.
And as always, remember to stay on your Path…
