... way to truly live. Value your true friends.

Think about it - if you didn't have such a big house or such a fancy car or the huge big TV, or those new designer clothes, How much money could you save? How soon could you be out of debt and how much money would you have to spend on something that you have always dreamed about that would make you happy. It is about focusing on what makes you happy.

... he mentions that his culture is not much for an Autobiography so he is offering it forth as a catalogue of the successes and failures within his exploration of Satyagraha. Much of it is inspired by his South African experiences as a young lawyer. These are books that likely should have been read years ago, but discovering them while in the country has made them much more immediate and personal.

Back to the tour. Sthembiso swung by a beautiful valley with a waterfall before ...
