us treat people as our own sister and brother
On the morning
of September 11, 2001, when the first plane hit the Twin Towers of the
World Trade Center in New York, a teacher was walking into the building
of a day care center with her little child.
1. This Day Care
Center had an established emergency exit route but the teachers somehow
chose not to take it. Had they taken that route, all the kids would have
been completely crushed. This is what we call.....
the DIVINE GUIDANCE.
So what do you think created this miracle
under the divine guidance and grace?
I believe that
LOVE stands for the LIGHT OF
I have learnt this philosophy from the "Spirit of Zoroastrianism".
The core philosophy of this religion is focused on Good thoughts, Good Words, and Good Deeds, through Unconditional Love and Spirituality. The prime focus is on reaching out, instead of pointing out, and the prime focus is on lighting the candle, instead of cursing the darkness. Because, we do not see the light, by cursing the darkness, we only see the light by lighting the candle, and we do not get results by pointing out, we only get results by reaching out.
Now the key here is to understand,
that there is light in what you are saying, and there is light in what
someone else is saying. Now we have the choice. We can choose to put these
two lights together and create more light, or we can choose to put off
these two lights altogether and create more fight. The choice is entirely
ours. So instead of fighting things in life, focus on lighting things
in life. And this will only happen when we focus on Good thoughts, Good
Words, and Good Deeds, in each and every moment of our lives. Now the
question comes, how can we incorporate the principles of Good thoughts,
Good words, and Good Deeds to be able to live an unconditional and spiritual
This is what
it says in my book, Bread For The
Good thoughts, Good words and Good deeds are truly energized
When we spread so much peace around us, there is no room for war
When we spread so much love around us, there is no room for hate
When we spread so much good around us, there is no room for evil
When we spread so much health around us, there is no room for sickness
When we spread so much light around us, there is no room for darkness
When we spread so much prosperity around us, there is no room for adversity
When we spread so much consciousness around us, there is no room for viciousness
In short, OUR HAND WAS DESIGNED FOR REACHING OUT NOT POINTING OUT
candle loses nothing by lighting another candle
And with that understanding
we may be able to prevent
I will leave you with these words of wisdom from Dada Vaswani:
" I have met many
people who will go to any length to prove the superiority of their religion
over those of others. They will hold endless discussions and debates.
They will even fight for it and die for it. But I have met very few who
live for their religion - who bear witness to its great teaching in deeds
of daily living. Religion is life!"
In it lies the essence of HEALING Humanity
