Two Men in a Burning House Must Not Stop To Argue – Ashanti Proverb

It is not your responsibiltiy to change the minds of other people.  The nature of their thinking is advanced or limited by their experience.  In your presence, they have an opportunity to learn about you and perhaps to grow.  Allow them to experience you as a well-grounded, compassionate being who is capable of listening, learning, sharing and growing.  That is your responsibiltiy to yourself, your life, and the other person.  You can be an example of the peaceful, vibrant, valuable contributor your ancestors were.  Like them, you can contribute to the enlightenment of the world when you spend less time worrying about what others think and more time creating positive change.   –I Vanzant

Although the face of God is before all people, the fool cannot find it – The Hasia, translated by r. Maulana Karenga

I just wanted to share this wisdom I read from Iyanla…

The Creator asks very little of you.  He asks that you seek the truth and speak it when you find it.  He asks that you treat your brother as you would be terated, forgiving what you need to be forgiven of you.  He asks that you honor your parents, discipline and value your children, trust and honor yourself as an expression of Him.  When you look to anyone or anything as your road to God, you are on your way to being lost.  “Seek ye first the kingdom and all things shall be added.”  The kingdom is your heart, free of hate, greed and lust.  To find it, you must surrender your willfullness and listen to the quiet voice within.
