Another blog discovered in my archives from January 10, 2010.
About two years ago, I was sitting with a close group of soul-sisters who are dedicated, beautiful, and ridiculously funny Change Leaders from the non-profit organization, Shakti Rising, in San Diego. It was during a fun night of honoring the sacred feminine, speaking our Dharma, and uplifting each other to greatness, that I was introduced to this quote by Margaret Mead:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful people can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”
We used this quote to inspire, thank, and remind the 100 volunteers that help run Shakti Rising that each person’s efforts were truly appreciated for the greater good of All.
As I do with most inspirational quotes, I place them on my altar. This quote, in particular, I placed on my refrigerator next to the picture of Paramahansa Yogananda, Gandhiji, my family, and the Dalai Lama (the second altar in my house that reminds me of my abundant life each time I eat). Each day reminding me that my thoughts, my actions, my words, my intentions are somehow in someway making a difference. And if not in someone else’s life, at least in the experience of Love (God, Allah, Spirit, you name it) flowing through ME in this body, this time around.
Recently this bright yellow reminder has been speaking to me differently. It’s reminding me that transformation isn’t just possible, but that it is happening. So, I want to share my “same-same but different” version with you as a source of inspiration, remembrance, and motivation. A reminder of how AMAZING YOU ARE and how each and every one of your actions, interactions, and intentions are truly making a difference TODAY.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful and passionate people can and will change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”
Here’s to being YOU…thoughtful and passionate, willing and able!!! Have a wonderful day.
Aloha & Namaste
