Mantra for the Week

1503231_652499628118833_1046048641_n

A friend of mine shared this on Facebook, and I thought it would be a really good mantra for me this week. You might also like it, so I’m putting it up here just in case.

I reckon this is a good reminder for all of us as we do forget about this sometimes especially on occasions when we’re clouded by anger, frustration, jealousy, or greed. It would especially be difficult to do this with our enemies, but hey, let’s challenge ourselves.

I remember a friend relating to me an incident that happened inside a big mall in the Philippines. A stranger came to her and tried to talk to her, but her mind was preoccupied with so many things she ended up ignoring him. A couple of minutes later, she heard people screaming — the stranger decided to end his life by jumping off the railing. He was dead on the spot.

“I should have talked to him,” my friend said to me. “Now, it’s too late.”

Pensamos demasiadamente e sentimos muito pouco. Necessitamos mais de humildade que de máquinas. Mais de bondade e ternura que de inteligência. Sem isso, a vida se tornará violenta e tudo se perderá. Charles Chaplin.
