The joy of being more human

I saw two beautiful butterflies flitting among the wildflowers, too fast to capture well.

The sight stirred my emotions, though my thoughts took me elsewhere.

And reminded me that in the face of technological advances such as AI and the pressures of our culture, we urgently need to be more human, not as a fearful reaction but as an opportunity to reclaim our birthright.

These are a few of the qualities that distinctively capture who we are:

We experience delight, astonishment and grief.

We crave meaning, significance and connection.

We know gratitude, uncertainty and imperfection.

We are open to mystery, beauty and love.

We are curious, creative and unique.

And we are playful.
