There seems to be but two kinds of people here on earth today,
Just two different kinds of people, no more, I say;
Not the good and the bad, for its well understood
that the good are half bad and the bad are half good.
No! The two kinds of people on earth I mean are more...
We so easily spend money for pleasure that is fleeting at best. We give in order to possess or control. We hoard to keep what we don't need for a day that will never come. We wonder why others are so selfish and closed. We seek credit in our good deeds and we expect thanks...
A TEAR DROP AND A LOOK OF LONELINESS COMES TO THE CHILD UNDER 5 WHO IS SLOWLY DYING FROM A HUNGER RELATED ILLNESS.
I SEE IT AND I WANT TO CHANGE IT. IF THAT MAKES ME EGOTISTICAL THEN THANK GOD FOR EGO.
Why DON’T YOU SEE IT?
WHAT IF IT WERE YOUR CHILD, OR GRANDCHILD, OR BROTHER...
I sit here feeling empty. The world just became darker by several degrees. The reports are that 8 teachers and 18 children were gunned down in an elementary school in Newtown, Conneticut.
I think of my children and my future grandchildren. How trusting and vulnerable they...
I just quit a 12 step meeting that was being run BADLY.
I am an adult child of an alcoholic and I only made a suggestion to the leader to be a little more friendly to newcomers and she just went off on me completely.
Not to mention, I am a whistle blower of sorts.
"Be generous, and you will be prosperous. Help others, and you will be helped". - Proverbs 11:25. This statement left a very profound thought in my mind.
Life was not handed on me on a silver platter but we get to eat what we want and get what we need. If there is something we...
Every year at Christmas, my family helps out a family in need. We have been doing this for about 15 years.
I never reveal who I am, we always leave the food and gifts from Santa. The tricky part of this is that we are on disability. We are considered to be low income (very low...
Helping hand style
Walk in the shoes of lesser others
And feel the feelings of another
So as to understand the life
Behind their feelings of strife
The parent must feel like the child
The feeling must be shown with a smile
Teachers must feel like their students
vile and vulgar posters destroy the beauty of all they touch; but
Could they just grasp The Beauty of Nature running wild
How woody is a great oak tree as it feeds a squirrel and homes a bird
How juicy is a sweet smelling bloom as it feeds the butterfly and bee
can't tell which one I am I adopted eight children of multiple races with either mental or physical disorders I fight the system daily to try to get them the help they need being a single it is hard and sometimes I get frustrated at them then I take more classes when I have...
Today I looked from my faded tinted window out back into a life gone so quickly
And saw a crying sky with a lightening crack that suddenly left me feeling sickly
As I felt a thunderous boom shake my room of precious memories left behind
Then I knew I lived my life never truly...
I live in a moderate sized Canadian city, with big city problems.We have been given the title: Murder Capital of Canada, many years in a row.We have high rates of gang involvement; high rates of addiction; high rates of child exploitation; high rates of poverty; and the list goes...
it all changes with you.. You never know who's life you can embrace by donating things clothes food and such or just listening even and praying over and for them, I'm open to listening to anyone I don't judge I just tell them my life experiences and move forward... But at the...
Many believe that you have to either be part of an organized religion or social group to make a difference in your community and help those less fortunate. The truth is that a single person with the will to help can affect the lives of countless others without being religous or...
So often these days everyone chases money more than anything else. The costs involved in being alive outweigh the time there is to enjoy life, and some don't even understand the struggle, the spirit of it all!
Life is about feeling. There are many feelings, some very self...
If you feel that you are an indigo child then you should definatly carry on reading this :)
I'm a 15 year old British girl and I finally know what I am here to start.
I know that if all come together, then we can start peace in the world! It won't be perfect in a lifetime but we...

October 15th 1978 and the experiences of a little boy a set into place as the wheels of life begin to turn.
Having a mother who's desires were filled with blurred dreams at the age of 17 was now the barer of a little boy who she conceived under the weight of guilt.

just a splash, and it is gone;
But there’s half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on,
Spreading, spreading from the center, flowing on out to the sea.
And there is no way of telling where the end is going to be.
DROP A PEBBLE IN THE WATER: in a minute you forget,
Pull a weed.
Take a 30 minute walk. Outside.
Be a friend. Shut up that no one is a friend to you.
Have a job.
Volunteer for an organization.
Watch the paper. Help with the "City-Wide Cleanup"s and the other events.
Can't donate money and time? Just donate time. Money...
Devotion begins with devotion to family, friends and community . It is easier to proclaim abstract and remote love, then to step into the midst of living and keep an open heart through the thick of it. Be there where you are needed the most.
and let all distractions in this material world leave you for a little. by just listening and focusing your mind through meditation, your life will start making sense. it's a movement we all need to start. no longer do I want to live in a cold and concealed world as today
.. I just feel powerless to do anything for a neighbor... what can you do that they will accept from you? People today are a bit proud to be able to do things themselves.
As a community, we've forgotten that we are part of each other.
Very emotional experience seeing these people and drug affects on people on a daily basis! I would love to show my support to the community and give back to these folks who are some of the happiest looking people I've ever seen, but living in poverty!
It may be small scale, but it's got to start somewhere! From person to person, to community, to adjacent communities --- let the goodness spread!! Let's bring more warmth where it's cold, more light where it's dark. It starts small and then grows as more people take the...
Though my 'official' work is international development, I find that one of my greatest drives is simply to make the place where I live more community minded. I hate going somewhere that only has private space - where each person is quietly building their castle/mansion but where...
There is nothing so ever dreadful as a spirit lost
In life or death grab it dearly whatever the cost.
It's the warming heart of ego's only compassion
It stops a closed mind from pursuing a violent fashion.
It forever keeps the enemy number down to none

Wealth is never measured by what you have, but by what you can give away. You are rich with money when you can afford to donate. You are rich with love when you can give love freely. You are rich with God when you can behold your enemy with compassion.
I want to change the indignity feeled by my home village's people caused by the lack of water. Without water there is no dignity because a person can't be clean and can't have a healthy water. That's why I started a project called "dig for dignity" to dig a deep well and to offer...
I learned a valuable lesson from the CEO of our company when he visited my manufacturing plant. As plant manager, I was quite nervous and had been very busy getting everything in order, making sure everyone was on their best behavior, making sure nothing went dramatically wrong...
Try it out, give it to someone. What is something nice that you could do for a friend, family member or even a stranger today? Once you have thought of it, do it, and then move on to somebody else. Before long you'll start seeing results, try it, it's contagious.
