This post first appeared in the 10 Million Clicks For Peace blog here. We were approached by a wonderful woman, a 10 Million Clicks For Peace contributor named Vironika Tugaleva, author of The Love Mindset, to contribute a story for her project called The Real Us.

We’re here to help us show each other what’s possible (one story at a time). Rick sent her an inspirational article and you can read that by clicking this link. Once on her site... (Read More ...)

It should be no secret that children do not learn how to live a happy life by being instructed but rather by their own experiences and by the examples set by those who influence them. One such teaching moment of Modern Day Mastery co-founder, Rick Beneteau, came at the onset of Christmas a few years ago when his grandsons came to visit. A powerful Henry Drummond quote has it, “Happiness consists in giving, and in serving others.” With that in mind, read on…. It’s been a personal ritual for years. I’ve done it alone and kept it private… until now. Playing Santa around town... (Read More ...)

 I was a guest at a lakefront party a few weeks ago. Lake St. Clair to be exact, the big body of shallow water that straddles the Great Lakes’ Erie and Huron, yet has never been crowned as one of the five Great Lakes. Sitting under one of the two large tent structures that sheltered a huge hot tub, beer fridge and state-of-the-art BBQ among other beach party requisites, I thought the tied-back screen valances that rimmed the structures were evening defense for mosquito invasions. It seemed a little early in the season for those tiny tyrannical bloodsuckers but I left it at that. What arrived... (Read More ...)

On October 22, 2010, the 14th Dalai Lama visited Toronto, Ontario, and delivered his lecture, “Human Approaches to World Peace” at the Rogers Center. This was his farewell presentation before going into retirement (which he hasn’t). Rick Beneteau, co-founder of Modern Day Mastery, was in attendance. This is what he experienced: His maroon robes and unique stride were instantly recognizable as he made his way to center stage. The amplified sounds, as he fidgeted to hook up the tiny lapel microphone, echoed throughout the cavernous environs before he gently settled into the large... (Read More ...)

If you’ve ever really searched for a true definition of Love this inspirational article from Modern Day Mastery co-founder Julian Kalmar just might have you closer to finding one: Our highest purpose in this life is to learn to love, and to learn to do so in ever greater measures. 10 Million Clicks For Peace is an example of what can happen when one person strongly desired to help two other people who happened to be in a war zone. It is a good example of love in everyday life, and an illustration that we are far more capable than we think we are of loving on a larger and more magnificent... (Read More ...)
