Radiating

Share it Please
“We can work together for a better world with men and women of goodwill, those who radiate the intrinsic goodness of humankind.”

Wangari Maathai

When Wangari Maathai received the Norwegian Nobel Prize in 2004, the Committee said that “Her unique forms of action have contributed to drawing attention to political oppression—nationally and internationally. She has served as inspiration for many in the fight for democratic rights and has especially encouraged women to better their situation." In one of the photographs taken at the award ceremony Wangari is radiating a joy and power that seems incredible for someone who has been knocked unconscious for protesting, thrown in jail for being outspoken, attacked for her beliefs, and vilified by her government and husband. Most photographs of her show this radiating joy that seems to light up everything around her. She is quoted as saying “All of us have a God in us, and that God is the spirit that unites all life, everything that is on this planet.” In 1976 she introduced the idea of planting trees to prevent soil erosion, and since then 30 million trees have been planted in that project.
What causes you to radiate joy and light? What does the God in you unite you with?

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
