- Mother Teresa
When we see oneself in all and all in oneself we are ready to selflessly love ourselves and all of God's creation. While this is an absolute truth can this be followed in our daily dealings with all that we come across? Our total education and conditioning is to look externally and be judgemental all the time. This leads to all kinds of expectations and desires. When these desires are unfulfilled or someone does not behave in a manner we percieve as correct we tend to react. The reaction ranges from being merely sad to extreme anger and violence in thought word and deed. While the ability to rise in universal love is seen in the Self realised souls like Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Teresa can we too gradually bring about this transformation? I beleive the answer is yes and even if the task is daunting and seemingly unsurmountable it needs to be done. Bit by bit we can tranform ourselves to become non-judgemental at all times and give our love to all of God's creation at all times.
