Ready to be Given
You could do a lot worse for a personal creed than the quote above.
Imagine a world where everyone’s purpose was to improve the lives of each one they encountered everyday. Dream about a world where getting ahead, climbing the ladder, stepping on the necks of those in our way, was no longer the method of achieving. Instead helping our neighbor, loving the stranger, consoling the grieving, bringing peace to the war torn, healing to the disease ridden, stillness to the disturbed was the rule not the exception.
Too often we find ourselves waiting on the next big scientific breakthrough, or religious awakening, to fix what ails our nation and our world when the power to love, be kind, bring peace is already present and ready to be given.
