Join me in affirming this week:

I open my mind and my heart to allow the Divine to express through me, and to guide me to do what is mine to do.

I sometimes wonder if what I do, say, or think can possibly make enough of an impact in the world to make a difference. It helps to remember the Starfish Story attributed to Loren Eisley that tell of a young boy picking up stranded starfish on the beach and throwing them back into the ocean. A man asks him what he is doing to which the boy replies “If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.” The man points out that there are miles of beach and hundreds of starfish and that the boy is not likely to make much of a difference. The boy listens and then bends down to pick up another star fish. He flings it into the ocean and says “It made a difference to that one.”

There is a phrase in our teaching that says “we believe in our own soul, our own spirit, and our own destiny.” We may not always be able to see the long view of how everything is connected and how everything works out; however, we are convinced that everything we do, say, and think matters—if not to us immediately, to someone or something, now, or at some time we cannot know of.

I invite you to join me in affirming the quotation above and posting it on the social media of your choice. If you have done so, I would love to hear from you about the results.  You can email me at edward@cslsr.org. I’d love to hear from you.

Don’t forget to tag your affirmation with the tags #TheGlobalVision and #AWorldThatWorksForEveryone 

Warm regards,
Edward Viljoen

Seeing Good At Work

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
