Guided by my heritage of a love of beauty and respect for strength – in search of my mother’s garden, I found my own.
Since you are like no other being ever created since the beginning of time, you are incomparable.

Whatever and however things are said and done and got here, I will decide that everything stops right in front of me; and then, I decide that there will be no hatred or other negative and destructive things that will be uttered by me.

“MA VIE EST MON MESSAGE”
“MY LIFE IS MY MESSAGE”
Mahatma Ghandi [1869-1948]
If you ask people in India why is it that Mahatma Gandhi was able to
do what he did in India, they will say they followed him because of
his absolute sincerity. … Any time he made a mistake, even in his
personal life, or even a decision that he made in the independence
struggle, he came out in public and said, “I made a mistake.”
Martin Luther King, Jr. [1929-1968]

Strive constantly to serve the welfare of the world; by devotion to selfless work one attains the supreme goal of life. Do your work with the welfare of others always in mind. … The ignorant work for their own profit; the wise work for the welfare of the world, without thought for themselves. … Perform all work carefully, guided by compassion.

To journey without being changed is to be a nomad.
To change without journeying is to be a chameleon.
To journey and be transformed by the journey is to be a pilgrim.

On This Day
God, on this day
I welcome you into my heart.
I ask you for the patience
for the light and understanding
to help others, to help myself,
to allow me the strength
to make my life worthy and meaningful
as you have intended it to be.

We are not cabin dwellers, born to a life cramped and confined; we are meant to explore, to seek, to push the limits of our potential as human beings. The world of the sense is just a base camp: we are meant to be as much at home in consciousness as in the world of physical reality.

Who we become, depends upon the choices we make. At particular times in our lives, really significant choices are made that shape our fate. When we are in a threshold time, what we decide to do determines what comes next.

To find love I must enter into the sanctuary where it is hidden, which is the mystery of God.
