Here are seeds that, with care, can grow a new garden in our hearts and minds…
a garden that can nourish ALL.
All change in the world will ultimately reflect from both our outer actions and our inner personal change. Both are required.
From changing our minds – beliefs and judgments – to resolving the paradoxes of this duality,
to taking action to help provide Food, Water, Shelter, Healthcare and Education for all …
with a fair measure of emotional resolution along the way…. permanent change is possible.
Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness,
but because you deserve Peace. – Desmond Tutu
We are not flawed….we are being asked to grow beyond ways that no longer fit us.
Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us,
and the world will live as one. – John Lennon
Responsibility for change is as easy as responding to each situation as new.
Thinking and feeling at the same time makes it easier to see things anew.
Thinking and feeling divorced of each other only bring reactions; the same old, same old
feelings, patterns and results.
Respond = new choices Reaction = the same old act
Make Peace with thinking and feeling simultaneously.
We can unite without needing someone/thing to unite against.
Unite for Peace Begins with Enough for All.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. – Mother Theresa
Competition and comparison have carried us a great distance, motivating the growth of humanity.
Competition sets us against one another and unchecked will destroy us.
On the one hand competition = growth…on the other hand competition = destruction.
Peace lies hovering above this paradox.
Nobody can bring you peace but yourself. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
True remorse will carry you further toward the freedom of forgiveness
than the endless rut of guilt ever will.
Ultimate peace comes in forgiving self… for it all.
Unseen positive futures await on the other side of forgiveness.
We are an entire species in the midst of monumental change…..that can only happen
individual by individual.
The power is revealed in holding both sides of this reality at once.
