I've been realizing that everyday is a new start and that we all should use it to our advantage. We all possess the innate ability to renew our mind and bodies every evening or every waking moment I should say. I know you can do it, and so can I. That's just marvelous how much power we really hold.
I've also recognized that the only person who can positively respond to change is ourselves. Within our thoughts we commit to changing our attitudes. We can respond in a way that is appropriate and gentle. As the Martin Luther, a fabulous commentator in the 1500's stated in his lyrics,
"Kill thou not out of evil will,
Nor hate, nor render ill for ill;
Be patient and of gentle mood,
And to thy foe do thou good.
Have mercy, Lord."
And as Buddha put it in his words, the life which the scheme prescribed, though compatible with good citizenship and even conducive to it, is quite independent of it. It is also quite independent of caste, of social gradation, of distinctions such as that between priest and layman, between the learned and the ignorant, between gentle and simple, between rich and poor.
We all make daily sacrifices to others and unto ourselves. I'm insisting dearly beloved that you assist your hearts and be wealthy with a happy spirit. I wish you peace, no suffering and loving relationships. I wish nothing more than a productive and hard-working people in which we all strive for common ground to walk on.
This all comes from a sacred place that only the Universe can provide. I believe in sustainability and structure we do not flail, but we conquer. That is all I can leave you with in this present moment as my brain has decided to rest. It's going to be a long day, but I can feel a beautiful shift in my current attitude. Blessed be marvelous ones.
Love, Light & Peace,
