I found myself praying for answers... I wish to be centered more in Gods Love... I found that if we focus on divine qualities such as compassion and forgiveness if we believe Love is for all people then we may alleviate suffering, however small or great. Speculating my role in an overpowering political and corporate society and the role of the many innocent hearts who tirelessly play someone else's game- I was reminded of a quote from Mother Teresa
"Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love."
In my opinion, it isn't necessary to take to battle over politics to see change. If we can invest that same energy in Loving the people in our every day lives, the rippling effect may be so great- we may finally find peace.
After praying for more Love, I was reminded through out the day to pray for world peace- to enjoy peoples unique expression... I was reminded of Service- Many great teachers, their entire life had become a service to Love... And all we need to do is practice it with each other and not get swept by the manufacturing magic that hopes to take this simple act away from us. I believe my prayers have been shown a way... And the guidance today came from reflecting on Mother Teresa's very heart felt words...
Mother TeresaWhat can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.
I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
I want you to be concerned about your next-door neighbor. Do you know your next-door neighbor?
I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’ rather he will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?
God doesn’t require us to succeed, he only requires that you try.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.
Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are.
Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
