Your words might impress others. People will say “He is a good speaker. What interesting things he says”. But if you don’t practice what you say, others will not feel inspired to do it. It is your actions more than your words which will inspire and show them how to do it.

The most powerful form of teaching is by example. What you see through your eyes creates the greatest impact. The heart accepts it and it does not need many words. You cannot impose peace on any one through force but you can bring this about by being peaceful and creating a peaceful environment.

Every creative task needs humility behind it, for humility is plainness and on plainness the colors and shape of the work are clear to see and mould. If a new world were to come, it would need vitally this quiet basis to form itself on, that could stay the same whilst things were changing. Humility is the willingness to be used in any way that’s necessary, however out of character it may seem; for in humility, individuality has been exchanged for the task it is involved in. Quietness in this case is an unquestioning acceptance of whatever has to be done. Humility is rare, because to have it you have to want nothing. If you do have it, you get everything.

Humility dismisses nothing, but takes even small thins seriously. It is the recognition that whatever is in life and in front of you, is to be respected as something that will take you forwards; that inside big things there is sometimes little; but inside little, there is often enormity.

Life is a game of forgetting and remembering. You are losing the game when you forget who you are and what you are doing here. You are losing the game when you remember all the false things of the past and what they did to you. You are winning the game when you remember your true identity of peace, remember the One who is always peaceful and has unconditional love for you. You are winning the game when you forget the troubles of the past and move forward with lessons learned.
