3 Pebbles is inspired by the philosophy that discovering and casting your impassioned, ‘enlightened will’ creates rippling effects that can deeply impact the lives of people around you.
Imagine if your impassioned will was a pebble that you could cast into the water of those lives around you.
Cast your pebble into a puddle and it only creates those close by.
Cast your pebble into a pond and the ripples spread further afield.
Cast your pebble into an ocean and your influence can be global.
Where will you cast your pebble?
How far will the ripples spread?
Wherever you are is the entry point. Jump in…and let your good deeds ripple out. We invite you to participate in creating the pathways to a better future.
