Thoughts to Consider
| For This Michael Age
We must eradicate from the soul
All fear and terror of what comes toward man
Out of the future.
We must look forward
With absolute equanimity
To everything that may come.
And we must think only that whatever comes
Is given us by world direction
Full of wisdom.
It is part of what we must learn in this age,
Namely, to act out of pure trust
Without any security in existence,
Trust in the ever-present
Help of the Spiritual World.
Truly, nothing else will do
If all courage is not to fail us.
Let us discipline our will and let us seek
The awakening from within ourselves
Every morning and every evening.
Mantra For America
May our feeling penetrate into the center of our heart
And seek, in Love,
to unite with human beings seeking the same goal,
With Spirit Beings, who, full of Grace behold our
earnest, heartfelt striving
And, in beholding, strengthen us from realms of Light
Illuminating our Life in Love.
|Nine Requisites for Contented Living
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
health~ enough to make work a pleasure
wealth~ enough to support your needs
strength~ enough to battle with your difficulties and forsake them
patience~ enough to toil until some good is accomplished
charity~ enough to see some good in your neighbor
love~ enough to make you useful and helpful to others
faith~ enough to make real the things of God
hope ~ enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future
I Dream a World
I dream a world where man
No other man will scorn,
Where love will bless the earth
And peace its paths adorn
I dream a world where all
Will know sweet freedom's way,
Where greed no longer saps the soul
Nor avarice blights our day.
A world I dream where black or white,
Whatever race you be,
Will share the bounties of the earth
And every man is free,
Where wretchedness will hang its head
And joy, like a pearl,
Attends the needs of all mankind-
Of such I dream, my world!
|Mohandas K. Gandhi's list of seven deadly sins:
Wealth without work
Pleasure without conscience
Knowledge without character
Business without morality
Science without humanity
Worship without sacrifice
Politics without principle
Nelson Mandela - Inaugural Speech 1994
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve this world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us;
It is not just in some of us - it's in everyone!
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others!"
