Failed mission to find God, found this instead
Anjali Kumar, Esq. (TED, 2/22/18); Crystal Quintero, Ashley Wells (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly
My failed mission to find God -- and what I found instead
Catholic school educated American Jain Anjali Kumar went looking for God and ended up finding something else entirely. In an uplifting talk about our shared humanity, she takes us on a spiritual pilgrimage to meet wise women in New York, a shaman in Peru, the famed Brazilian healer and full trance medium John of God (João de Deus), and others, sharing an important lesson: What binds us together is far stronger than what separates us. Our differences are surmountable because what we all want are health, lasting happiness to sustain us, and love.
