  • Did you ever see a tiny baby, arms flailing, fingers finding his own hair, wrapping around and pulling? He cries out!!
    He does not know it is his own hair he is pulling. He is just an infant, new to things.

    The truth of it all is this:


    Man matured into his Wholeness knows this, embraces this. He knows if you spite one, you spite yourself. He knows the value of empathy, of kindness, of love. He lives by these qualities, he would not live any other way. He does not judge lest he be judged. He has been there, done that.

    Some people simply are not there yet. Love them anyway.

    Some people cast stones. Do not throw them back.

    Some people are asleep. They are your brothers anyway. Awake is only awake, not better.

    The house is burning and some still sleep. Pray for them to awaken in time. Thank your lucky stars you have awakened!
    Life is not without its pain and trial, but how deep it is, how glorious, how mysterious!

    Set examples.

    Be kind.

    Spread love.
