Wisdom from Perdita Fisher

Each day is a new opportunity to have impact and influence in the universe. I ask the creator, how can I serve you today? If I can help somebody, then my living is not in vain.

Prayer, meditation, and deep breathing is my way of beginning and ending my day. I pray for the will of God, not my will, to be done.

I begin and end my day with gratitude. I am grateful for each moment in this journey called life. I am grateful for the mountain-top experiences as well as the low valleys. I have learned to ask, what is the lesson I am to learn? Because there is a lesson in everything. In all things, give thanks.

I have come to understand that there is a valid reason for everything that happens to me and I am responsible for everything that happens in my life. I am not what happens to me but what I choose to become. I look for the beauty in everything, the simple things like a bird in flight, an ant building an ant hill, a butterfly, a mother looking at her child, and a child learning to walk or ride a bike….Continue reading at InspireMeToday.com.

thanks Gail and Perdita i agree "how can i serve you" is a good idea

from Yogananda (author of Autobiography of a yogi) in seperate writing:

"Like attracts like. Whatever you want others to be, first be that yourself, then you will find others responding in like manner to you. If you want to be loved, start loving others who need your love. If you expect others to be honest with you, then start being honest yourself. If you want others to sympathize with you, start showing sympathy to those around you. If you want to be respected, you must learn to be respectful to everyone, both young and old. If you want a display of peace from others, you must be peaceful yourself."

"Consideration for others
Consideration for others is a wonderful quality and gives you the greatest attractiveness. Practice it! Consideration for others means being aware of them, listening to them, and being attentive to their needs. Try to develop an intuitive awareness of the needs of others.

Let your supreme goal be to make others happy in order to gain happiness for yourself. Take a genuine interest in the problems of others. Every time you meet a receptive human being, make him feel your interest in his physical, mental, and spiritual welfare. Never neglect to do whatever you can for yourself in the forms of others. Live by the principle, “Each for all and all for each.” In getting for yourself, you must get for others too."

" Find happiness in helping whoever crosses your path
