A Vision for Those Who Are Lost
We envision a world where all those who are lost have found their way home;
where all who are cold have found shelter from the winds and a fire to keep them warm;
where all who are hungry have found food in abundance;
where all who are in pain are comforted and cared for;
where all who are confused have found peace in their mind;
where all who are struggling in their emotions have found quiet in their heart;
where all who are lonely have found someone to hold them and love them;
and where all who yearn to be with their Father Mother God in Heaven have found Him/Her within.
“You can run a process, ‘Give me something you could give everything you have to.’ All of a sudden the fellow realizes that there are darn few all-out efforts anywhere in this universe. He’d get unhappy about it. And after a while he’ll find out there are some and he’ll dream up some or invent some. And after that he’ll get very, very happy about it.
“He’s trying to give his body to things. He’s trying to give his all to things. And after he finds out that he has reservations; he feels he probably shouldn’t forward everything he has, you know, put all your eggs in one basket, expend all the ammunition, burn all the gas, you know, he should save some, then he gets into trouble! Above this point he does not save because he can create at will. But below this point he’s doubted his ability to invent and create and he begins to save. …
“All you had to do is start to restrain something, restrict it and of course you’ve got a game. But when it comes down to where you’re saving mass or saving energy or saving space, intending to use it later, you can’t even play a game.”
“Growth begins when we start to accept our own weakness.”
Humanitarian, Jean Vanier
Your action for today is to pretend you’re asked to give a talk on one of your weaknesses. Notice how you feel about this.
Have an extraordinary day!
