PBS NEWS HOUR INTERVIEW 2/22/2012 WITH AUTHOR, ROGER ROSENBLATT

I heard the interview with Mr. Rosenblatt about his book, “Kayak Morning” NY [Times book review] click here. On the  PBS interview he mentioned the quote above. I have not read his book, but his presence during the interview and the quote  really peaked my interest

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is carrying a heavy burden”. Words to keep in mind when dealing with all sentient beings. Mr. Rosenblatt attributes the quote to Philo.

For a ink to the PBS interview click here.  My search around Philo brought me to this link. I am assuming this is the  philosopher Mr. Rosenblatt was referring to. The quote attributed to Philo is slightly different.

Thanks to the two people who wrote in before I updated this post 8/2013. At the time I wrote the original entry I was not able to find the interview with Mr. Rosenblatt.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi

  1. I love the sound of this, and I almost prefer it, but the original quote is this “Be kind. Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” More commonly attributed to Plato, Ian MacLauren seems to be the originator.
