“The All-Knowing Physician hath His finger on the pulse of mankind. He perceiveth the disease, and prescribeth, in His unerring wisdom, the remedy. Every age hath its own problem, and every soul its particular aspiration. The remedy the world needeth in its present-day afflictions can never be the same as that which a subsequent age may require. Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and centre your deliberations on its exigencies and requirements.”
amy: today I contemplated losing my temper. several times. and then I took a deep breath, closed my eyes and focused on what was positive, happy and beautiful in my life. I could think of so many things, I was overwhelmed with gratitude and I couldn’t help but smile.
leila: i was so thankful to have so much natural beauty in my environment today. it is soothing and grants perspective. i find that i am only hungry around mealtimes—a sudden pang. it’s so regular i can basically keep time by it. yesterday i learned that four billion of the world’s people live on less than two dollars a day. together with my readings for school i am studying “The Prosperity of Humankind“. this is so important to me, to think about what can happen in this world in the light of spiritual as well as material advancement.
