I Heart Strangers

Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. — Rumi

Inspiration of the Day:
“Every single day, I went out into the world to seek out someone I had never before met. I introduced myself and asked them if I could photograph them. I took something valuable away from every encounter and did my best to pass that along.” Artist Joshua Langlais started the “I Heart Strangers” project as an attempt to love his neighbors. Starting it in 2008 with the intention of doing it for a year, he kept it up for 625 days. “I get all my inspiration from meeting people and developing relationships. I see community and conversation and loving people as the only things that matter,” Langlais explained. As he went on with the project, he realized that it was actually transforming him. “I learn about myself through the daily processes and continue to grow and better relate to others and genuinely feel more compassion for what is happening to the world around me.” http://www.dailygood.org/more.php?n=4628

Be The Change:
Connect with someone you’ve never met — and pour your full presence into that interaction.
