It’s perhaps the most important decision I’ve taken as far as os.me is concerned. I called it my personal playground and built it with my sweat and blood over the last ten years. It wouldn’t be possible without the team that supports me and runs this platform. And, it certainly wouldn’t mean anything had you not been a part of it. Some of you have been reading my posts from the very beginning. I have showed up for you and you have showed up for me.
How do I thank you? How do I express what it means to me that you are a part of this closely-knit community? I’ve called you my spiritual family. So, one thought I’d had a few times was to allow you to express yourself to the world on os.me. That, I let you dribble the ball, let you bounce it around and score a point in the same arena where I play.
It is my honor and pleasure to…drum roll…open up os.me to you.
From this moment on, just as I write on os.me (something, I’ll continue doing, of course), you too can publish your thoughts. I encourage you to write beautiful things, inspiring, positive and truthful stories. Write about your challenges and thoughts. Write poetry, share your musings, tell us what you think, anything you like. Short post, long post, series, whatever catches your fancy, write it here. Let’s make it a place someone can visit for hope, truth and inspiration.
There’s no hierarchy nor any filtering process. Anyone can have a voice on os.me. Your post will be visible on the members’ feed on the homepage and if it has impact, soul and inspiration, we’ll feature it prominently in the Featured Posts on the homepage of os.me.

My life’s purpose is to put hope in hearts. My core values are compassion and truth. My philosophy is love. I don’t let me forget that everything is impermanent, interconnected and transient. All things I do in my life, for myself and others, stem from the above.
What is your philosophy, your core values, purpose, and inspiration? Tell us on os.me.
Let’s fill os.me with hope, beauty, truth and love. We need a lot of these in our world.
My immense thanks to the multi-cultural team that worked tirelessly for the last five months to make this a reality.
