To try to act a little kinder than is necessary


”“If every person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are,
whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary –
the world really would be a better place.
And if you do this,
if you act just a little kinder than is necessary,
someone else, somewhere, someday,
may recognize in you, in every single one of you,
the face of God.”

Live brightly


‘”Let everything we do and say be an expression of the beauty in our heart,
always based on love.”

~ Don Miguel Ruiz

Live brightly. Be who you are. Who you really are.
With all your wrinkles and warts.
All your cuteness and kindness.
You are enough.
Just relax and be you

Give with joy


”“There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.”

~ Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

“The greatest joy comes from giving and serving.
That’s much better than the discomfort and distress of focusing exclusively on yourself and what’s in it for you. ”

A virus giving the world an opportunity to re-evaluate and change the way we live

For weeks now many people have found themselves bounded to just a few square metres of their living quarters.

In the lockdown many people found themselves obliged to find ways to keep themselves busy and not pulled down by isolation. In this world of exuberant consumerism and going out for relaxation and meeting people, we were bounded to the modern tools of the internet to have virtual contact with each other.

Everybody now got some weeks just for themselves, enabling each of us to reflect on their life, but also on the way our society goes on with her materialistic life.

It seems this virus is giving the world an opportunity to re-evaluate and change the way we live, work, produce, and distribute goods and services. Travel, work, food, and manufacturing may have to dramatically change.

By lockdown hearing nature to revive, hearing more the sound of singing birds and seeing more animals going around free in nature.

Let us think about new and better ways to continue our life in the future.

**

For thought

The key is how we respond to this new challenge. 


“All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting.
All over the world people are looking at their neighbours in a new way.
All over the world, people are waking up to a new reality.
To how big we really are.
To how little control we really have.
To what really matters.
To Love.
So we pray and we remember that
Yes, there is fear, but there does not have to be hate.
Yes, there is isolation, but there does not have to be loneliness.
Yes, there is panic buying, but there does not have to be meanness.
Yes, there is sickness, but there does not have to be disease of the soul.
Yes, there is even death, but there can always be a rebirth of love.
Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.
Today, breathe.
Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic.
The birds are singing again.
The sky is clearing,
Spring is coming,
And we are always encompassed by Love.
Open the windows of your soul and sing.”

-from Richard Hendrick (Brother Richard) in Ireland, March 13th, 2020

The Struggle Ends When Gratitude Begins

In these times of Coronavirus, we do find so many people in quarantine complaining, whilst they have now so much time for themselves.

For many, it should be the ideal moment to get their house cupboards and house cleaned and to put themselves at ease taking time for consideration and meditation.

Hopefully, lots of people shall now being able to find several little things of much pressure value and shall come to appreciate much more what is around them in the house as well as outside in nature.

To remember

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” – Anonymous

  • When things seem tough = easy for all positivity to lose its place in our heart.
  • consult life in a deeper way => find an endless amount of things to be grateful for.
  • get to endure life’s tiny pleasures > sunrise, sunset, water, food, shelter, peaceful walk in nature, comforting warmth of the sun or heathing in the house,

> realize that there are some people who don’t even have access to the simplest of things.

Many opportunities given by God

If you keep your faith and trust in God

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” – Anonymous

When things seem tough, it is so easy for all the positivity to lose its place in my heart. But as I am beginning to consult life in a deeper way, I am starting to find an endless amount of things to be grateful for.

When I see homeless people from time to time, having to sleep on the streets all night, every night, I often think to myself, “What right do I have to show my frustration and complain about the tiniest of things that bother me?”

I live in a world where I get to wake up in the morning, breathe normally, and have a beating heart. I get to enjoy today, and hopefully wake up again tomorrow. I have the loveliest family, the most incredible friends, the yummiest food, that sometimes I feel like we take so many…
