Better Than Bitterness

My friend Mary recently said to me… “Prayer sounds much better than bitterness and hatred.” 

Truer words have never been spoken! 

No one really WANTS to be mad… no one really WANTS to be bitter… we all really WANT to help each other, to pray for each other & to Love each other. 

I want to carry that thought with me through my day as a constant reminder. 

The goal for today: Love people… because that’s all we really WANT to do anyway! 

Have a great day everybody!

Love Everybody

“Hatred ceases not with hatred” ~Buddha. 

It seems perfectly logical to retaliate when someone wrongs us… but is it? 

The logic we seem to have lost touch with… the logic that could change the world for the better… the logic that our Peace & Happiness, as well as that of our children & grandchildren is dependent upon, is the opposite of that logic. 

I should never hate someone that hates me… I should Love them! 

It is the only Right thing to do… & deep down, we all know it. 

The goal for today: Love people, all people, even my enemies! 

Have a great day everybody!

Hatred

“Hatred ceases not with hatred; hatred ceases only with love” ~Buddha. 

This should be common sense, but somehow it isn’t. 

Most of my life I believed that if someone wronged me, I was supposed to wrong them back. 

Now I can see how insane & ineffective that method of working really is. 

Nothing good ever came from me treating other people poorly. 

The goal for today: eliminate hatred from my life by practicing Patience, Tolerance, Kindliness & Love! 

Have a great day everybody!
