For Reflection: Before you move on to Mission #7, reflect on yesterday's mission. What did it feel like to contemplate how old the universe is, and how long it took for the universe to arrive at you? Do you feel more compassion for yourself when you are patient with yourself, and with others? Was it challenging to stop and simply observe the world around you? Why do you think that is? Do you feel that your life, or modern life, is in tune with the rhythm and timing of nature? Share your reflections on the Compassion Report Map!

Agents, our seventh mission is to unleash the sunlight of the our spirit: our connection to one another.

When you think of the idea of connection, what comes to mind?

It has been argued that the aspect of life human beings crave and yearn for the most is connection. Connection to a sense of meaning in our lives. Connection to the passions that inspire us. Connection to the world around us, and of course, connection to each other.

In fact, our greatest desire for connection of all is our desire to authentically connect with one another. True connection with those we deeply care about is like sunlight to the human spirit. With it, it feels like we are being seen by the light of the world. With connection, we can overcome the greatest challenges, and make it through the starkest winters.

Without connection, we grow lonely and anxious, and eventually, we feel isolated and even hopeless.

This is because human beings are fundamentally social animals. And lasting connection - which comes from seeing into one another genuinely, supporting one another, mourning our grief and celebrating our joys together - is to us what sunlight is to a tree.

In the following video, Agents Oprah Winfrey Louie Schwartzberg, and Jason Silva will guide us through the mystery and science behind connection.

UN's Sustainable Development Goal:

Gender Equity
 

Ending all forms of discrimination against women and girls is not only a basic human right, but it also crucial to accelerating sustainable development. It has been proven time and again, that empowering women and girls has a multiplier effect, and helps drive up economic growth and development across the board.
 

Gender Equality is one of 17 Global Goals that make up the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to achieve the global unity that we seek.

Learn more about the targets for this Goal here.

Agents, It's Your Turn!


Your mission today, Agents, is to show someone you deeply care about that you celebrate your connection to one another.

This person could be anyone in your life, friend or family member. Try to refrain from using social media of any kind... research shows that more meaningful acts of connection come from person to person interactions. If this is not possible, write your person a letter, or give them a phone call to express your joy for your connection!


As you reveal the power of connection in your life, remember to report your experiences on the Compassion Report Map to inspire others around the world!
 
Good luck, Agents!

P.S. If you wish to do so you can support the work of the Dalai Lama Fellows, Dr. Jane Goodall, and Hereditary Chief Phil Lane Jr., our featured Champion of Compassions, to spread their remarkable work toward global unity with others!
