Here is today's heartfelt blessing:
Hello DU,

Here is today's heartfelt blessing:

"When I despair, I remember that all through history, the ways of
truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and
murderers and, for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end
they always fall. Think of it...always."

-Mahatma Ghandi

Often, when we are in the midst of turmoil, and all around us is
spinning out of control, it is diffcult to believe the storms of
life will ever pass. In such times as this, we can, it seems, do
nothing but tie a knot in the end of our rope and hang on. And this
is all we need to do. We need only to hang on to love, hang on to
light and hang on to truth. For when the storm has passed -- and
they always do -- these three will remain, as strong and certain
and invincible as they have been since time began. As Ghandi said,
love always wins.

And until next time...

Know that you are loved beyond measure and a cherished blessing to
me.

May your day be filled with all things good,

Kate

1. Thanks!
Kate,

Thank you so much for posting this blessing. This message of Ghandi's has always been one of my favorites, but it slips my mind, sometimes when I need it most. It was exactly the message I needed at this very moment. You have helped keep me from completely "loosing it" at a very trying time.

Blessings to you. Namaste.

2. I disagree a little bit.

I don't think it's enough, "... only to hang on to love, hang on to
light and hang on to truth." Ghandi worked hard spreading love, spreading light, and spreading truth. I think we have to do that too.
