Inspiration For Those Who Are Religious/Spiritually Minded

We Are All Fellow Children of God

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself (Deuteronomy 6:5,Leviticus 19:18, Luke 10:27).
My question to you is this: How can you truly do that if you block out the pain and death of one billion people? From that perspective, there is no “they.” Rather, your neighbors are fellow children of God. To protect our nation’s children, including your children and your neighbor’s children, the law of each and every one of our states is that there should be no underage smoking. Let’s make surethat gets accomplished.

Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed.
-Gandhi

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
—Gandhi (describing the stages of establishment resistance to a winning strategy of nonviolent activism)

Jesus gave me the message. Gandhi gave me the method.
—Martin Luther King Jr.

Responsibility does not only lie with the leaders of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to do a particular job. It lies with each of us individually.
—Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th and current Dalai Lama

The Outer World Reflects the Inner World
Here’s a story of a Native American boy talking to his grandfather:
“What do you think about the world situation?” the young boy asked.
The grandfather replied, “I feel like wolves are fighting in my heart. One is full of anger and hatred; the other is full of love, forgiveness, and peace.”
“Which one will win?” asked the boy. To which the grandfather replied, “The one I feed.” (Origin unknown)

Our Deepest Fear
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is OUR LIGHT, NOT our Darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you NOT to be?
You are a child of GOD.
Your playing small does not serve the World.
There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel unsure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
As we let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
—Marianne Williamson

It’s An Attitude. Just Do It.

For the young people, and the young at heart, get those IPods on, and get movin’ to the tune of: The Kick Butts, No Effort, No Sweat, Just Do It, Boycott. For the rest of us, remember when you were idealistic and wanted to change the world … and thought you could change the world? Just do it.
It IS an attitude. Take back your power, and create the world you want to live in. Not the world they want to create that is against your best interests. Awaken yourself to your powers and abilities, and that you can act consciously to create the world you want … a better world. It’s simple, easy and effortless. No sweat. Don’t buy their products, at least until they stop selling to distributors and stores that sell to children and underage teens.
That’s right … Just do it …
That’s right … allow yourself to feel good that you’re more consciously creating the world you want to see.
Remember the difference you can make on this planet. There’s only ONE of you, EVER on this earth in all of history. So what do you want to create? Your ignorance about this issue has been erased. So now that you know … what will you do?
Join The Kick Butts, No Effort, No Sweat, Just Do It, Boycott.

Inspiration For All Of Us

The Tobacco Holocaust Can Be Ended
The Boycotts Can Work

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men
Who find it easier to live in a world they’ve been given
Than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact … it’s an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration … it’s a dare.
Impossible is potential.
Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is NOTHING.
—World championship boxer Muhammad Ali

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare;
it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
—Seneca

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has beauty, power and magic in it.
—Goethe
