About

Best You Best Me, is based on the philosophy that “we are one” and that by helping to alleviate suffering in another is helping to alleviate suffering in ourselves.

In our society, we are conditioned to differentiate other people based on if they are brighter or dumber, richer or poorer, bigger or smaller, male or female, old or new, and we place them in separate categories and compartments and treat them as such by separating them.

Best You Best Me seeks to change that.

we are one

It's about looking at another and focusing on how we are alike opposed to how we are different.

It's about becoming and being an instrument of peace and reducing the cumulative suffering in the world.

It’s about the understanding that we are not a fragment of the universe, but we are the universe.

It's about becoming the best version of ourselves so that we can help others become the best version of themselves.

It's about the understanding that the divine intelligence that created you is the same divine intelligence that created me.

At BYBM we are helping to alleviate suffering through the use of insightful information, educational and transformational events.

We want to help by making direct contributions to individuals and groups and telling their stories online to set an example.

We are called upon to inspire and empower a new generation of heroes and sheroes to spread kindness throughout the universe using their own God given gift.

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
