quote du jour ~sri chimnoy

Unless and until we have peace deep within us, we can never hope to have peace in the outer world. You and I create the world by the vibrations that we offer to it. If we can invoke peace and then offer it to somebody else, we will see how peace expands from one to two persons, and gradually to the world at large. Peace will come about in the world from the perfection of individuals. If you have peace, I have peace, he has peace, and she has peace, then automatically universal peace will dawn.

  1. I agree. This is how I came to a place of peace with the fact that there was so much that needed to be done in the world, and I was only one person, wanting to help but overwhelmed by the magnitude of it all. I finally resolved to do what I could in my own backyard, one person at a time, one situation at a time, with faith that what I did would have a ripple effect. There’s a great quote by Mother Teresa that fits this:

    We can not do great things on this earth. We can only do small things with great love.
    ~Mother Teresa
