There are many wonderful teachers on the planet who offer us a vision of a kinder and more peaceful world. They seem to be tuned in to some place where knowledge springs eternal and they touch and transform the hearts of many people – sometimes millions of people. These teachers do not teach religion or dogma – they respect all religions, they are speaking to us all, to their human family.
They are asking us to live lives of compassion, love, and forgiveness. They are speaking to our higher selves, our better angels. You could say, their religion is love. They are here to show us a more peaceful way to live and interact with each other. They are like flowers whose life’s purpose is to bring the world a touch of beauty, to spread the fragrance of higher consciousness to all of us who stumble along this human often arduous journey of life.
Our world is full of those would prefer the ways of war and conflict, where egos run rampant and ignorance and hatred fuel their violent actions, creating more and more pain and suffering. But these beings of light show another way, and those who are moved by them, also begin to choose the path of peace, and one by one, people begin to change and the world changes one person at a time.
In upcoming blogs, I will share with some more of my favorite teachers.
“Every colour has its own significance, but the real beauty lies when it unifies like a rainbow. Love is the centre of every relationship. The real beauty has its own sheen when love and unity combines, said Mata Amritanandamayi Devi at A.S. Raja College Grounds here on Wednesday.”
“In order to rally people, governments need enemies. They want us to be afraid, to hate, so we will rally behind them. And if they do not have a real enemy, they will invent one in order to mobilize us.”
