“For animals that are overworked, underfed, and cruelly treated; for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death…and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words.”
― Albert Schweitzer
“Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.”
– Martin Luther King
If we end up hating, ultimately we end up harming ourselves as under Spiritual Law we reap what we sow. As everything we “put out” into the Universe (in words thoughts and deeds) falls back on it’s origin -(ourselves).
Today, I join our friends all over the world who are celebrating the Hindu Festival, Diwali; also known as Deepavali and the Festival of Lights! I may not fully understand the history, traditions and rituals behind the Festival, all the same, I cannot but share in the loving thoughts and joyful sentiments surrounding a Festival dedicated to light and signifying “the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair.[“
Happy Diwali, my dear friends! May the Festival remind us all of the ETERNAL LIGHT and Its WILL!
This year, October 23 comes down with so much “feel good” for me: this Festival, the New Moon Eclipse and my Birth Day; all in one day! So much to be grateful for!
Abundant love, peace and joy are what I wish everyone who has crossed my earthly path so far; irrespective of whether we have met physically or, not. I pray that I do not fail (again) the Hand of Fate that has guided our paths to the “crossings”!
We all know that life has ups and downs; you’ve experienced both. And though you can’t always control what happens outside you, you can choose how you will respond. You can treat life as a dance rather than a wrestling match. You can become an active participant rather than a victim of circumstance.”
