Change the World


 No matter what people tell you,

words and ideas can change the world. 

~ Robin Williams


What’s the memory you leave behind after you’re gone?  How will people remember you?  These are the questions in my head this morning as we say goodbye to Robin Williams who passed away yesterday.  When I think of him, I think of the laughter he evoked in such a variety of ways and I admire the freedom he displayed in expressing so many different characters seeming as easily as he took a breath.  I am reminded of the stories that circulate about how he offered to pay for treatment for Christopher Reeve after the horseback riding accident which left him paralyzed and how he quietly and yet consistently donated his own funds to all different charities over the years.

I have written about how Laughter is the Best Medicine and even about Robin Williams portrayal of Patch Adams here as to me, the gift of a smile and laughter is so important ~ and quite contagious!  Don’t you agree?

To honor his memory, let’s willingly smile at everyone today for you never know who really needs a smile.  When a friend answers, “I’m fine,” to your inquiry and you have an inkling that they may not be ‘fine’ please don’t hesitate to reach out in kindness.  Sometimes those who are always giving out smiles, need a smile from you as well.

Rest in Peace Robin Williams.

Shine On!

The Light of Unity

6012085_“So powerful is the light of unity

that it can illuminate the whole earth.” – Baha’u’llah

Are you tired of your dragon, your darkness, your despair?  Do you long to stay focused on the light, on the positivity and on connecting with yourself and others?  Are you willing to take the baby steps in order to expand the light of hope, of happiness and of a life with less dark dragons?

The key to slaying those dragons is within you.

That widget I spoke about here  is possible, right here, right now.  There’s no waiting for it to be developed.  It can start developing now within you and it can grow as fast as you wish it to grow.  It is up to you.  Perseverance, kindness and stamina are needed for it to blossom.  It requires hand-holding, unity and light building.  Connections within yourself and with others may be formed.  Dragon strength lessens as lessons are achieved.

Do you wish for more light in your world?

You’ll know you’re ready when the above quote makes you smile ~ when you can simply imagine the whole world basked in light illuminated by the souls who dwell here.  Do you wish to be a part of that light?  I know I do.

Imagine ourselves shining on and uniting our lights!  We can do it!  Come on, take my hand!

Shine On!
