There is hope that we can create a thriving, healthy and abundant world, but we have to do more than hope.

Higher Learning: A Pilot's Journey Begins

Christine Hannon | Posted 01.25.2015 | Travel
Christine Hannon

Flying is soaring between Heaven and Earth with a very real sense of mortality and responsibility. It is a balance of forces to create lift and a balance of focus to maintain attitudes.

We all feel fearful when we are pursuing something big in our lives. It's scary to drop what you've been doing for years and take a different path. It is scary to invest money in a project that we don't know is going to be profitable. Nothing in this life is certain (well, they say that only taxes and death are).
