Today's Thought

Let the ugliness of unkindness in others impel those who suffered to make themselves beautiful with loving-kindness. May the harsh speech and statements from the self-proclaimed champions of mankind/onekind remind us of their "sweet words" always.

If stones from evil minds are cast at us, let us send in return only missiles of "goodwill". As a jasmine vine sheds its flowers over the hands delivering ax blows at its roots, so, on all who act inimically toward us may we shower the blossoms of forgiveness.

-- Adapted from Paramahansa Yogananda (`Whispers from Eternity')
