This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. – George Bernard Shaw
What is a ‘mighty’ purpose that drives you? This doesn’t mean that it was be one that has world-wide reach or is earth shattering. It just means a purpose that’s very meaningful to you. Whether it’s raising a future citizen of the world or feeding the homeless.
There’s immense power in emerging out of our selfish shell, to look around us, notice our place in creation and make our own positive impact on something or someone! We benefit as does the collective, in untold ways.
Let’s all become more aware, and act!
