Beauty, the Nature of Soul

The growing sense of affection that Africans have for their country's beautiful natural resources, both fauna and flora, helps to sustain them. One example is Lake Niassa in Mozambique. It is home to 1,000 species of cichlids and freshwater fish and is treasured and now protected.  WWF - Coastal East Africa   

When severely challenged in a thousand ways and places, beauty and wonder bring out the hope and fortitude in people. These qualities are so needed in every part of Africa. The pain of war, hatred, corruption, ignorance, fear, drought and famine are too much to bear without the restoration a moment or glimpse of beauty brings.

Ye are all the children of light...
Rejoice evermore...
In every thing give thanks.
[see beauty around you]
Quench not the Spirit...

Beauty nourishes the soul of man.
The slightest beauty in the desert is a feast.
Thus fortified, man does the incredible until victorious.
The Soul of Spirit impels man to express it.

No man, male or female, will fail.

Faithful is he that calleth you,
who also will do it.


quotation:  I Thessalonians 5


AHT decision born of integrity defies pragmatic logic

Anishnawbe Health Toronto (AHT)
The Anishnawbe(1) Health Toronto (AHT) decision is a beautiful lesson on "Love reflected in love"(2) and The Golden Rule. 

[After] a call recently letting them know that a prime spot for a new health center could be part of the city’s oldest Catholic burial ground, they felt they had no choice but to walk away.
'The irony is not lost on us,' 
Anishnawbe Health Toronto 
Executive Director Joe Hester told The Toronto Star. At the same time, it’s something of a no-brainer. 'It’s a burial site.' ~Indian Country Today Media Network

To read about people being true to their sense of Principle inspires me. Being true to yourself and what rightly informs your behavior is integrity. Integrity allows you to live freely and without disconnect. It is graceful power.

Maintaining and safeguarding your integrity is necessary. Not letting another commandeer your integrity requires clear understanding of what you hold true. It takes alertness and discernment about what you admit into your consciousness. What you admit into your thought will take root. Rooted good and beauty will bring you a harvest of good and beauty. It will bring you peace and joy - naturally and without pain, loss or fatigue. This is law, therefore, admit only what you want to harvest.

Then should adversity or injustice or evil of any form come to your door, you are prepared. You will not admit it. It will not take root. You will remain untouched and serene in your life and affairs. The storm may roar but it will be powerless to disturb you. You will know it is not Truth and must fall. You will continue undisturbed doing what is yours to do. You will find success. This is the immutable Science of Life.

The Anishnawbe Health Toronto leadership have modeled the idea below and they cannot suffer consequences for their decision:

To punish ourselves for others' faults, is superlative folly.
Well may we feel wounded by our own faults; but we can hardly afford to be miserable for the faults of others. ...we should go forth into life ...with a charity broad enough to cover the whole world's evil, and sweet enough to neutralize what is bitter in it.
 ~MaryBaker Eddy(3)

Thank you for lighting our common way more brightly and caring that none should continue to stumble in the dark.
