If you want others to be good with you, be good with others first.
Don’t expect the good to come from where you put it.
Don’t expect that only good will come your way.
If you are doing well from the bottom of your heart. If you are doing it without any expectation. Then good will come to you.
There’s no way to know when it will come, but it will.
“I think we need to look at ourselves first. We should practice what we’re preaching. Otherwise, we are hypocrites.”
– Mo Ibrahim
Talk is cheap. Action is what makes things happen.
Every action, even the smallest ones will have an influence on reality.
Don’t underestimate the power of being idle. No action is influencing reality as much as if you do take action.
From the moment you are aware, you have influence on reality. For good or bad, you shape the world.
We are linked to each other’s.
There’s no me and you. There’s only us.
“When we know ourselves to be connected to all others, acting compassionately is simply the natural thing to do.”
– Rachel Naomi Remen
It’s hard to see that when we do arm to others, we do arm to ourselves.
It’s hard to see that when we give to others, we give to ourselves.
“To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.”
Start to think as us and your life will change.
Love is the way.
You can’t win a war with hate.
You can’t win a war if you accept to be involved in it.
“You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake.”
– Jeannette Rankin
Don’t fight against war. Instead, promote love. Give love.
How can you love someone else if you can’t love yourself first.
Love without expectation. It will come back to you anyway.
“If you can’t love yourself, how can you love others? If you can’t forgive yourself, how can you forgive others?”
– Debasish Mridha
Forgiveness is an act of love.
Breaking free from hate and anger is the way to true freedom.
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
So many people are getting burned because it’s what they have been told to do. Learning is great, but experiences will always straight things up to what is real.
Many people don’t want to face the reality that their anger and hate will never build anything good.
“Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.”
Love can heal the damage done with hatred and anger. It has to be sincere.
Build a world of love with your actions. Start with your actions and they will influence the world around you. Like a ripple on water, your actions will affect further than just the people that are directly around you.
