Philanthropy


 -- Quote of the Day --

"The act of philanthropy is a spiritual act, an expression of caring for one's fellow human beings. It is a belief in the future and that the future can be good. It is investing in that future. It is helping to make the dream come true."

~ Arthur Frantzreb


-- Positive Living --

Conscious living can begin with something as small as watching the wording we are using when talking to ourselves or speaking to others. Avoiding critical, negative thinking patterns and gossip will go a long way in this goal. Using our voices, the fact that we have the ability to speak, to make the world a better place. Giving others strength, comfort, support or expressing joy of their existence... this is the power we have just by using our mouths. Think back in your life at some of the most hurtful things you've experienced - I'll bet you'll think of cruel teasing in school or someone who tore you down for a moment with something they said. Their voices echo in our minds for years sometimes... The same can be said for the kindness we can express with the same mouth - we are just choosing to use it in a positive, proactive way.
