❝ Before you speak, ask yourself: Is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve upon the silence?
❝ Let us, friends, pray for peace. People’s minds are getting disturbed by tragic and violent news. To help the world, we must be at peace in our own minds. Prayer is very important now. We must not shout at or hit our spouse or children despite how frustrated we feel, or we will be adding to violence in the world. It does not matter if it is committed by police, protesters, terrorists, or military. Violence is violence; and it only leads to more and more violence. We must set a good example for others by being peaceful in our thought, word, and deed. If others come at us in violence, we must turn the other cheek, because now anger and fear are abundant, but love, patience, forgiveness, compassion and mercy are lacking in the world. Let us pray for all who are suffering from violence.
❝ Whenever we catch ourselves affirming a negative concept, we must take notice and realize that we are conditioning the subconscious mind and in this way; creating a negative potential for the future. We must counter negative words by making positive statements. Perhaps ten times we should state the positive to counter the negative. To make up for insulting others, we should complement them. To make up for expressing doubt, concern or anger, we must make statements expressing faith, acceptance, and love.
