Hercules was troubled.
On Mt. Olympus there were two distinct groups. The “gods” who ruled it by often bullying the other group, the lowly ”mortals.”
Ego and power ruled the day.
But Hercules was half god and half mortal. He was strong but frustrated because all the gods used their strength for was to further feed their ego’s.
He wanted to do something with his strength to honor the one spirit… the one GOD in heaven above them all (then called Zeus) and also “uplift” those below.
Inspiration came to him! He devised a race that both mortals and gods would participate in…
to CELEBRATE their respective strengths! To share in the experience, instead of stealing others joy to feed our ego.
So much excitement was created by this concept that it swept up all - gods and mortals who both treated each other with respect for the first time, on this playing field of sport.
The race was dedicated to Zeus. And all anyone remembers is the fellowship it created. So much so that no one bothered to even record who won.
And this is the ancient legend behind the founding of the first Olympic Games on Mt. Olympus.
May the games ahead, and the wonderful athletes we cheer experience the same feeling.
Perhaps they’ll also realize that in fact they are ALL winners, just for “running the race.”

Hélène Grimaud Beethoven Choral fantasy (by heleneGrimaudTV)
a little artistry to end the evening.
Hélène Grimaud is in inspiring artist, nature activist, author and brings an energy to classical music that I can only imagine the composers would have wished to hear. Her Emperor Concerto inspires me like little else on earth. Enjoy
NYC sunset. Breathe it in.
Good news but, the #1 “soft drink” is now the “energy” drinks with insane amounts of sugar, caffeine, etc… so this isn’t completely good news.
I wish the world would discover how perrier with lemon rocks.
If we take a moment to consider if that drink will serve us BEST, it could change our choices forever.
Great article in the NY Times.
