Focus on your objectives and base your decisions on a moral foundation.
The heart of a Christian, who believes and feels, cannot pass the hardships and deprivations of the poor without helping them.
Solitude is where I place my chaos to rest and awaken my inner peace.
Travel is costly yes, but it pays dividends too.
Compassion is born out of lovingkindness.
It is born of knowing our oneness, not just thinking about it or wishing it were so. It is born out of the wisdom of seeing things exactly as they are.
More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate.
