Korean astrophotographer Kwon O Chul captured these dazzling auroras dancing overhead in the night sky in Yellowknife, Canada. The northern lights were so bright that Kwon needed only seconds to photograph the natural phenomenon.

It is better to open your hand to receive than fancy yourself the only giver.

Suppose you went to a U.S. ghetto this summer and tried to help the poor there “help themselves.” Very soon you would be either spit upon or laughed at. People offended by your pretentiousness would hit or spit. People who understand that your own bad consciences push you to this gesture would laugh condescendingly. Soon you would be made aware of your irrelevance among the poor, of your status as middle-class college students on a summer assignment… And it is profoundly damaging to yourselves when you define something that you want to do as “good,” a “sacrifice” and “help.”

I am here to challenge you to recognize your inability, your powerlessness and your incapacity to do the “good” which you intended to do.
