Think of someone who has made a difference in your life.
We each have people who inspire us, who we admire for who they are and what they do. With all the inequality and injustice in the world, these people are important, for they uplift us.
Now, with gratitude in your heart for this person, realize that you are also a bright spirit of inspiration. You uplift others by living with integrity, by smiling, by being kind, by doing what you love to do. As you expand your awareness of the impact you have on others, you strengthen your awareness of your connection to all things.
As a global family, we have a responsibility and deep yearning to find harmony together. Let us set an intention for change.
I encourage you to read these next words out loud, and to repeat them or a similar intention out loud each day.
“May every effort I make, however small, be an uplifting force that ripples out to touch all hearts. May every day be a positive shift in the evolution of a peaceful humanity. May every word I speak contribute to the abundance of beauty, truth, and love. May all people live in freedom.”
Instead of a meditation today, I offer you a gift. May this video inspire you, uplift you, and help you think about how you want to influence the renewal of our planetary society. Enjoy this music video: “The Price of Silence”, then share it and inspire others!
May all beings be happy.
May all beings be free from suffering.
May all beings live in joy, love, and peace.
If you feel generous of heart right now, go to http://emmaacademyproject.com/ and donate (even just one dollar – it adds up!) to build a school in Sudan for children who want nothing more than the empowerment of an education. This project is the legacy of the late Emma McCue, who rescued young Emmanuel Jal (one of the artists in the music video above) from the traumas of being a child soldier. Emmanuel now uses music to bring peace and heal from the horrors of his childhood, and has made it his mission to improve the lives of children in Africa. May his dream come true. http://www.guaafricaonline.com/founder.php
