Mother Teresa #4 - Doing Good

The good you do today, People will often forget tomorrow, Do good anyway.

There is spiritual value in doing good for the energy it sends out - it puts the Universe in debt to you.

Life - from George Bernard Shaw

Life is no brief candle to me.  It is a sort of splendid torch which I have for a moment.  I want to make it burn as brightly as possible.     George Bernard Shaw

   Usually what snuffs out our lit candles are not the obstacles of the day but views of our past or future. 
   A technique I've seen used is to envision a rope tied to a past problem that clouds our current view - pull and tug at it until attention is again focused only on present time.  Amazing relief and wisdom comes that see the strength or weakness of what was and how its importance looks today.
   The future can be handled similarly - throw that rope out there and pull it inuntil it feels like the current moment.  A step toward the goal may appear.
                       Let's keep our candles lit, My Friends, Merrily

The Value of Tenderness & Kindness

Today - as always - is a good day.

Two friends were being chided by their peers for always being happy.  "How cna you be that way?"  They would be asked.  These two had similar backgrounds and gave this reply.  "The worst of today is better than the best used to be."  They knew the alternative.   Merrily

Mother Teresa #3

"If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives - be kind anyway."
It's your energy that you are sending - it's stronger than theirs.

Mother Teresa - #2

"People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered - forgive them anyway."

We never really know what soul expression they are following.

God - Shine

 Florence Nightingale had as the foundation of her life this idea: “God is in all things, and all things in God, the Eternal shining through the accidents of space and time.” 

If such an idea was a person’s divine center and central mission, what kind of life would be possible?  How would life be lived if God was known to be in all things and all things in God?  If the Eternal shined through the events of our lives and the world, would it change the way we live? Our lives are changed when a simple truth is at the center.  What is your simple truth?

Mother Teresa

"People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered - forgive them anyway."

Her soul-searching has led her to believe that by clearing the energy of whatever misdirection was expressed, we clear our world with this immature energy.  Not easy - just important.  Merrily

Love Just Keeps Getting Stronger

Even when we're most sure that love can't conquer all, it seems to anyway.  Anne Lamott

Love is the outworking of the divine and inner urge of life.  It is founded on understanding, nurtured by unselfish service, and perfected in wisdom.  Urantia

The day comes when the risk it takes to remain tight in a bud is more painful than the risk it takes to blossom.     Anaias Nin

Kindness Penetrates


Kindness is the language which
the deaf can hear and the blind
can see.


Have a World-Wide View

""Knowledge is limited.  Imagination encircles the world."  Einstein

Imagination Valued by Einstein

"Imagination is more important than knowledge.  It is the preview of life's coming attractions."

   All that we have was once an idea in someone's mind.

Person Inner Light from Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

"People are like stained-glass windows, they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." 

   Elizabeth Kubler-Ross is a noted historian of hospice and personal survival experiences. 

Simplicity Rules

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction. Einsten

What a great call to simplify all we have and do. Merrily
