Unsung Heroes: People Shining a Light in a Sometimes Dark World

Edwin Hubbel Chapin once said, “Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.” That is the definition of a legacy. Wouldn’t you love to do something that might strike a beautiful chord that will “vibrate in eternity”?

“The last thing I remember at work the day before the bomb,” recalls Paralympic hopeful Martine Wright, “was jumping up and down with my colleagues because London had won the bid for the Games.”

Beyond the Zone: God and The Spiritual Journey

Also at http://www.inspiringvideo.wordpress

This is my favourite and sums up my beliefs, my “message”, my ‘little’ life (in a few words)…in trying, striving in some small way to break down barriers between people(s).

“I had a good chance to meet a yogi who was so spiritual and happy all the time. I wondered how he managed his thinking and I learned a lot from him. I saw him and I thought, ‘This is the way.’ You believe in a God, but not in a religious way. We human beings like to give him names, whether that is Jesus
or whatever else. But my view is that God is ONE, whether it is Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, almost anything, and that he is everywhere. He (or she) has (no gender), colour, no religion, no race, nothing. It’s incredible how close he is to you and to everybody. You just call him…

“There is only one thing that has power completely, and that is love. Because when a man loves, he seeks no power, and therefore he has power…”

Working, Striving towards a more Peaceful World "I WRITE, I SHARE, I DREAM!"

“There is only one thing that has power completely, and that is love. Because when a man loves, he seeks no power, and therefore he has power. Only strive for power, if it is not at the cost of other people. Power corrupts. You first have to be pure and righteous, before one can attain power. I believe that love is a greater force than power.”
