A Journey in Selflessness August 1, 2011

Filed under: Spiritual Journies — lovepaintingrainbows @ 3:04 am

Today is a lesson in selflessness and pure love for me. Sometimes it is one of the easiest things to do… but usually not. Especially when you give it and it is not returned. It’s so hard being challenged… but it can be a great opportunity for serious growth.

“See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone.” ~1 Thessalonians 5:15.

“Where love is there God is also.” ~Ghandi

“Anger is the enemy of non-violence and pride is the monster that swallows it up.” ~Ghandi

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” ~Romans 12:10

“We are formed and molded by our thoughts. Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act. Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them.” ~Buddha

“Through selfless service, eternal peace is obtained.” ~Sri Guru Granth Sahib

It is known throughout many times, cultures, and societies that selflessness and pure selfless love are above all else. Reading through these quotes tonight helped ease my mind and guide my thoughts and attitude to a more peaceful place. Hopefully, I can be this all the time… as much as possible.

This is one of the hardest things to learn to be, but it is so rewarding in the end. I hope this is all as helpful to you as it is to me. How can we make the world a better place? Through one, simple, loving act at a time. May your week be filled with this love! 🙂

Love, Alisha
