Do Not Stop Building

Sometimes while you are so passionately busy building, there will be others as busy destroying. Do not stop. One day you will notice how high above you get, and how down below they end up.”    Sameh Elsayed

Building Something Better

During the past year how often have we longed to return to “normal?”  But when we look back with a clear mind and not just a longing for the familiar can we see that we are being called to build something better?

So where do we start? 

We start with ourselves by being sure we are calm, centered, peaceful, and grounded.  We cannot rebuild from a place of anger.

Next, we listen to Spirit and each other.  Really listen.

Finally, we act out of love.

That’s it.  I don’t believe in complicating things that are not complicated.

But now comes the hard part.  Living it.  So go forth and start building.

Sometimes Hope Whispers

Even in the darkest night we can hear the gentle voice of hope whispering to us if we listen closely. We end March with one of my favorite old hymns, Whispering Hope, sung by Mary Duff and Daniel O’Connell.

Few things are more powerful

“Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A word of optimism and hope. A ‘you can do it’ when things are tough.” – Richard M. DeVos

Turn our Common Suffering into Hope

“Our human compassion binds us the one to the other – not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.” – Nelson Mandela

All Great Things are Simple

“All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.” – Winston Churchill

Hope Can be a Powerful Force

“Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”
― Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone
