I have received many comments and questions about how can a person be occupied with making oneself more fulfilled and live up to one's best when so many bad things are happening in the world. Storms, fires, drought, earthquakes, floods, high unemployment and the fear of terrorists are going on all over the world.
Now Is The Most Important Time
This is the most important time to be your best. This is the time to cast fear out of your life. Now is the time for you to reach your highest self so you can extend your encouraging thoughts and a helping hand to someone in stress. When you have meditated on being elevated to your most positive and loving self, only then can you truly reach out to others. First you help yourself. Then you see to your family and friends. Next you assist your community and by then you should realize that every person is your family and you are ready to reach out to whomever needs you . If you are not able to help physically or financially, then you send helping and loving thoughts everyday to the world. You must not allow yourself to become depressed because that only adds to the pessimism in the world.
September 11. A date that changed the American people. As we observed the tenth anniversary of those events, we had to face the fact that there are people who hated us. People who hated us enough to attack our country and kill people going about their daily lives. On that day and for days after we became brothers and sisters. We held each other and gave aid where ever we could. We stood together in sorrow and yet there was love there, too. We loved the strength of so many people doing courageous acts. We gave love to those who lost family or friends. We loved our country and the flag that is its symbol. We were sad but determined to be strong and help.
You Are Hope
At this time you must be determined to stay strong and help where it is needed. You must be strong within yourself. You must be as kind to yourself as you are to others. You must be grateful for the good things in your life. There are good things in your life as long as you breathe there is hope and that is a good thing.
