are here to enrich the world. Your mere presence
provides the potential for the world's enrichment, but is
our mere presence enough? If not, how do we go about
contributing in a conscious manner that which we want to
contribute, that which can and will enrich the lives of
the people we touch with our lives?
can we make of ourselves if we don't make even the
smallest effort to make the world a better place?
What do we make of ourselves if we don't try to add to the
positive energy of the world by giving of our talents and
abilities? We don't have to give on a grand scale,
and no one really expects us to do so--giving to the
people in our own spheres of influence is enough, as long
as we trust that the good that we do will be passed on by
its recipients to others.
easy to feel hopeless and helpless when we consider the
immensity of the world and its human population. But
it really isn't necessary to try to affect the world on
that level--we've been put where we are and given what we
had because that's where we can do good today. Right
now. Not tomorrow or next week, but here and now.
a living's fairly easy for most of us. Enriching the
world takes that extra step or two, going that extra mile
when we may feel like resting or giving up. But only
by giving to the world can we give to ourselves.
Only by making an effort to enrich the world--contributing
in positive ways to people we can contribute to--can we
contribute to ourselves and enrich our own lives, also.
