“This world is merciless, and were it outside you, you should indeed be fearful. Yet is was you who made it merciless, and now if mercilessness seems to look back at you, it can be corrected.” – A Course In Miracles
In our society, we tend to think that the revered “peace-makers” are above us. We marvel at their strength, bestow them with accolades and deify them – not just figures like Buddha or Mohammed but think Martin Luther King, J.F.K, Gandhi, Mandela. We say, “They are able to do what they do because they are special.” And they absolutely are special, extraordinary people. But here’s the thing – so are we.
We are all equipped with everything we need to transcend the ordinary and our physical surroundings. We need only to awaken to our purpose and, as a consequence, we will inevitably awaken to our higher self.
