Those who are filled with the real force of Love, with heart, with compassion and kindness never try to make themselves feel better at the expense of someone else. Never step on another to get ahead. Never kill another to prove their ideology.
As I read this morning in "A Thousands Paths to Tranquillity" by David Baird, "The truly great will go out of their way to help others to become so. Those who have failed themselves will do everything in their power to suffocate ambition."
Yes, hurt people do hurt people and this fundamental flaw in human egotistical thinking is one of the great bains of humanity where envy and jealousy are rife.
I believe the great lesson of our times for humanity is to learn that we are all connected and that what you want for another is what you want for yourself. What you do to another, you are doing to yourself. For some reason, many on our planet forget this simple spiritual truth, this Cosmic Law even though it has been inculcated into mass consciousness through our sacred texts like the Bible and many others.
My mantra: ALWAYS PAY IT FORWARD, ALWAYS GIVE ANOTHER A BREAK, ALWAYS PROMOTE TALENT, ALWAYS LEND A HELPING HAND, ALWAYS ENCOURAGE, ALWAYS SUPPORT, ALWAYS HELP SOMEONE ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS EVEN IF YOU HAVEN'T!!!
If you desire a quality in your life, give it to others first.
The first step in moving forward in life, is, as Eagle medicine states, "Taking heart and gathering your courage, for the Universe will always present you with opportunities to soar above the mundane levels of your life."
