“God, make me an instrument of Your 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 darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not seek so much to be consoled, as to console;
To be understood as to understand; to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying (to our small sense of self-identity) that we are born to eternal life.
Attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi

Some good information from Dennis Waitley:
In a way, human beings behave like bees. If you place several bees in an open-ended bottle and lay the bottle on its side with the base toward a light source, the bees will repeatedly fly to the bottle bottom toward the light. It never occurs to them to reverse gears and try another direction. This is a combination of genetic programming and learned behavior.
Put a bunch of flies in that bottle and turn the base toward a bright light. Within a few minutes, all the flies will have found their way out. They try all directions—up, down, toward the light, away from the light, often bumping into the glass—but sooner or later they flutter forth into the neck of the bottle and out the opening.
We often allow ourselves to become locked in our present circumstances, even if we are unhappy and really want to be reaching in a new direction. What we’re doing may make us miserable, but at least it’s familiar. One of the most important factors in achieving personal success is the willingness to try things out, to experiment, to test new ground. In fact, this is the only way to learn and progress: trial, error, feedback, knowledge, trial and success. It is a far better thing to try to succeed and fail than to do nothing and succeed.

From the I Ching by Brian Browne Walker:
“A healthy family, a healthy country, a healthy world – all grow from a single superior person.”
“This is the proper foundation of human communities. All clans must have a superior person at the center if they are to prosper and succeed. Therefore, in order to improve our family, company, nation or world community, we must begin by improving ourselves.
If you will observe healthy families you will always see present in them three qualities: love, faithfulness and correctness. When we truly love others, we are naturally kind, gentle and patient with them. When we are faithful to others, we place proper principles and conduct above temporary influences like anger, desire or greed. And when we practice correctness, we spiritually nourish ourselves and all those around us. When all three qualities are cultivated, a healthy clan springs naturally into being.
The difference between paying lip service to these ideals and practicing them is profound. If you advocate high ideals and actions to others but do not embody them yourself, your influence will disintegrate for lack of a proper foundation. Therefore, you must first instill them in yourself.
Concentrate not upon influencing others or external events but upon strengthening your inner devotion to proper principles. When modesty, acceptance, equanimity and gentleness become deeply ingrained in your character, they will flow steadily outward from you. Soon you will find yourself enmeshed in a web of healthy relationships, and in this there is great good fortune.”
You are here to actualize your infinite, divine potential. You are blessed and have the freedom of choice. You have the choice to respond rather than react. You have the choice to give love or fear. You are a Spiritual Beings having a human experience and you are capable of extraordinary acts of love, compassion and creation.
Throughout history there are many amazing people and masters who have demonstrated the highest values and proper principles in their lives. Gandhi, in the face of horrible attacks, control and manipulation by others, stood his ground for non-violence and resistance without using the same hurtful and destructive behaviors of his oppressors.
Regardless of the situation, there is always a way to share your truth without hurting others and by following proper principles. It is the way of mastery, a sign that you have transcended the inferior patterns of behavior and are following a higher path. This is possible for each and every individual on our planet. It requires your total commitment and total focus to truth and goodness.
Our world is facing its greatest challenge in its history. The serious problems in our environment, health, economies, governments and families all stem from our individual behavior. The way to improve the world is to improve yourself.
“If it’s to be, it’s up to me.”
Find your path to freedom and fulfillment with kindness, love and compassion – even when your very life is attacked or threatened. You make a choice every moment for love or fear. Choose wisely…..the state of your world depends on you!

“Your success in life does not altogether depend upon natural ability; it also depends upon determination to grasp the opportunity that is presented to you. Opportunities in life come by creation, not by chance. They are either created now, or were created at some time in the recent past, or the distant past, by yourself.
Since you have earned them, use them to the best advantage. You can make your life much more worthwhile now and in the future if you focus your attention upon your immediate needs and then use all available information, as well as your abilities, to fulfill them. You must develop all the powers that God gave you, the unlimited powers that come from innermost forces of your being.”
Think prosperously, feel prosperous, be prosperous…..
God’s rich supply is all around you universally, as well as innately within you, as talents and abilities and ideas longing for expression. But that rich supply and substance must be contacted and used. Your mind is your connecting link with it.
Your attitudes, your mental concepts, beliefs, outlook and feelings are your connecting links with God’s rich substance and your access to it. God can only do for you what He can do through you, by means of your thoughts and ideas which lead to your reactions.
Thus, prosperous thinking opens the way to prosperous results.
