Humanity Gives Orphan Appeal, Law of Attraction, Charitable Causes Charity
Now the first trip to Morocco was a complete disaster for me anyway, I did manage to grow an inch on my arms simply by carrying 40 kgs of Islamic books around but never managed to go to the Orphanage.
In fact, the first visit to Morocco was an abject disappointment for me as apart from lugging books and travellingintaxis across deserts. I couldn’t recall learning anything useful. It was our second trip that the magic started to take place. Iswore I would never go to Morocco again and yet a few short months I found myself cramped on an Easy Jet flight sitting next to theperson who would become the chief architect for Humanity Gives.
Now this gentleman wants to remain anonymous but those who know me will instantly realise who I am referring to. I would go to the ends of the earth for this chap.
For example, there was a time where I introduced him to young offenders, for several months he would meet dozens of young men many of whom had professed to wanting to join radicalised, extremist groups that promoted terror but on speaking to this mine field of Islamic wisdom they realised that they had scant knowledge of their own faith and were just airing there angers and frustrations.I recall he used to wear very smart tailored suits.
However, as I sat next to him on this flight. He was giving me a list of things to do. “Get a suit, freshen up, get some expensive aftershaves, people won’t take you seriously, read up on management systems and styles” …. the list went on for the entire flight. I wish I had taken notes but these were the building blocks of Humanity Gives. Change the name. Our original name was Rizq4all, and he despised this name however at that stage I was a lowly trustee and did not have the authority to eventually force the name change.
Our first trip to the Orphanage was not what I expected, I cannot speak Arabic and was simply following my friend and a guide from the Orphanage. I recall visiting lots of dull lit rooms with lots of children of varying ages from babies to toddles to infants, it wasn’t until we met some teenagers that I began to relax.
I think this was sensed and I was ushered back to the rooms with the toddlers, this was very frightening experience for me, how does one react to being hit by a toddler? do you ignore it? wipe away your embarrassment and try to maintain some form of professionalism? I was about to find out when this young man came running up to me punched mein my thigh barely missing my groin!!!
“aaaaaarrrrritttte he likes you” my friend’s voice boomed in the air as both he and guide took the utmost pleasure at my misfortune.
It was here that I learnt my first lesson. “Observe young people at play” I was told.
“Just feel the boundless energy, the curiosity, the endless hours spent visualising, playing with imaginary friends, the thought experiments. These valuable techniques long forgotten by us adults are the secret to becoming more productive. If you could tap into this energy field you would need little sleep, imagine becoming curious again about life and everything and I mean everything it offers only then will you start once again to live with passion”
