To HealingFuschia Heart
There is a light in this world,
a healing spirit
more powerful than any darkness we may encounter.
We sometime lose sight of this force
when there is suffering, and too much pain.
Then suddenly,
the spirit will emerge
through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call
and answer in extraordinary ways.

deeply in touch with the present moment,
Our understanding of what is going on deepens,
and we begin to be filled with
acceptance, joy, peace and love.

life is cold, selfish and uninteresting
and leads to distaste for everything.

life assumes a charm and it's miseries are softened.
If we knew the power of kindness.
we should transform the world into a paradise.

Hellen KellerDividing Line
Love is the one ingredient of which our world never tires
and of which there is never an abundance.
It is needed in the marketplace and in the mansions.
It is needed in the ghettos and in the governments.
It is needed in homes, in hospitals, and in individual hearts.
The world will never outgrow its need for love.
C. Neil StraitDividing Line
Love is Indestructible.
It's Holy Flame Forever burneth;
From Heaven it came, to Heaven Returneth.

We cannot do great things.
