"You are the altar of God upon the world. The spirit in you is the holiest thing on the planet. You are the church." ~Ed Thompson
This is a video my friend Ed Thompson asked me to create as he was battling cancer. He wanted to make a video that would tell people about the importance of mindfulness and living in the present moment.
Ed was a unique character with a big heart. He had been everything from a prison guard, to a bar owner, to a boxer, and even a mayor and gubernatorial candidate. He was in the middle of a race for State Senate when he was diagnosed with 4th stage pancreatic cancer.
In this video Ed looks back on his life, discusses cancer and explains how we are each capable of creating a peaceful world by looking deeply at ourselves and living in the now.
If someone you know is fighting cancer and you think they would benefit from this video, please feel free to share it with them. And if you’re fighting cancer yourself, please remain courageous and positive. Don’t give up hope.
Information and links to the rest of the video are available here.
