We need to transform for a better world

“We are part of the earth, and it is a part of us. This we know: all things are connected like the blood which unites one family. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”

“In a real sense all life is inter-related. All persons are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly…we are all links in the great chain of humanity.

“The love so many of us would like to see injected into the veins of civilization must first pour into us. Society will not transform until we transform; what’s wrong ‘out there’ is but a mere reflection of what’s wrong ‘in here’ .”

“A human being is part of the whole, called by us the universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

“If you want to see a better world, then we have to become better people.”

The first peace, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the enter of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.”

“Until we extends the circle of compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.”

“To me there is no difference between one person and another; I behold all as soul reflections of the one God. I can’t think of anyone as a stranger, for I know that we are all part of the One spirit.”

“The time for peace is now. Peace is not only the absence of violence, but the presence of a higher evolution of human awareness with respect, trust and integrity toward humankind.”

Individually, we have the potential to change the world. Collectively, the synergy of our intent can create a momentum which brings the shift about more quickly.
