One moment can change a day.
One day can change a life.
One life can change the world.......We are the world.
"WE ARE THE WORLD. WE ARE THE CHILDREN....WE'RE SAVING OUR OWN LIVES."
~ I'm reminding myself of a few thoughts today, needed for support & encouragement....come along if you like.
THIS WE KNOW: THE EARTH DOES NOT BELONG TO MAN; MAN BELONGS TO THE EARTH. THIS WE KNOW: ALL THINGS ARE CONNECTED LIKE THE BLOOD WHICH UNITES A FAMILY. ~ Chief Seattle
"....go out and help people and do so in mindfulness...Mindfulness must be engaged. Once there is seeing, there must be acting. Otherwise, what is the use of seeing? We must be aware of the real problems of the world. Then, with mindfulness, we will know what to do and what not to do to be of help....PEACE is in every step. "~ THICH NHAT HANH
PUT THINGS IN ORDER, LISTEN TO MY APPEAL, AGREE WITH ONE ANOTHER, LIVE IN PEACE. AND THE GOD OF LOVE AND PEACE WILL BE WITH YOU.
~ 2 CORINTHIANS 13:11
"Just as a mother would protect her only child, even at risk of her own life; even so let one cultivate a boundless heart toward all beings." ~ SHAKAMUNI BUDDHA
Make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith;where there is despair,hope;where there is sadness, joy; where there is darkness, light.
~ ST FRANCIS OF ASSISI ~
Why are we here? Are we mindfully engaged? We can only answer for ourselves. I'll start with bringing what little peace I am empowered to bring. The responsibility is daunting, but we must begin....begin anywhere we find need. ~ Susan St. John, Peace Corps Volunteer, Special Education
