Apologies and Clarifications

My apology to Rachel and attempt to answer some of the questions that have arisen.

I believe one's comment is a mirror of the grace one gives oneself when one makes a mistake. A harsh comment, even if directed to another, reflects how harsh you speak to yourself when you do something that is embarrassing or out of alignment with your values. Likewise, a forgiving comment reflects the level of forgiveness you show to yourself when you make a mistake.

The above is simply my observation. I wish you peace.

"Million Dollar Cup of Water" Book Description:

A memoir of Adam's journey from rags to riches, back to rags, and eventually to true wealth.

This book details the childhood that propelled Adam to chase money leading him to Wall Street, IBM and CFO roles, but never satisfying his craving for acceptance. After posting a poorly thought out 2.5 minute YouTube video to protest for human rights by ordering a free cup of water, his company was harassed, subsequently fired him, and quickly issued a press release. That press release led to a very public shaming on many media outlets, including the O'Reilly Factor and the Daily Show.

Over the next two years Adam received many offers for employment that were immediately rescinded after employers Googled his name. With repeated rejections, an inability to provide for his young family, and the belief that his online reputation now defined him, Adam fell into an identity crisis that pushed him into the darkest time in his life.

Through an authentic soul search and the healing presence of family and friends, Adam faced a reality that had always seemed too frightening and humiliating to accept. This search led him to the most beautiful truth he had never known, a truth that is in everything and everyone: when we choose to live an authentic life, we choose to finally live.

When he lost his job, he lost his equity in the company and six-figure salary, all amounting to over one million dollars in wealth, everything he was worth, or so he thought. The free cup of water turned into a million dollar cup of water that he would pay for all over again.
