Goodwill to All ...
... and to All, the Will-to-Good

 

 

Goodwill Thoughts
for the Festival Season

 

I call you to no organizational loyalties, but only to love your fellowmen ... I call you from your dreams of vague beauty, impossible Utopias and wishful thinking, to face life as it is today; and then to begin, in the place where you are, to make it better. I call you to the experiment of right human relations, beginning with your own personal relations to your family and friends, and then to the task of educating those you contact so that they also start a similar work. It is the work of attaining right individual relations, right group relations, right intergroup relations, right national relations and right international relations. I call you to the realization that in this work no one is futile or useless, but that all have a place of practical value. I call you to recognize that goodwill is a dynamic energy which can bring about world changes of a fundamental kind, and that its mode of expression is through the activity of the individual man and woman and through their massed intent.

- The Tibetan / Alice A. Bailey, The Externernalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 210

 

 

Live and Learn.
- Life's Wisdom

 

 

We are all born for Love.
It is the principle of our existence
and its only meaning and its only end.
- Benjamin Disraeli

 

 

Only if we understand, can we care.
Only if we care, will we help.
Only if we help, shall all be saved.
-
Jane Goodall

 

 

THE WILL TO GOOD OF THE WORLD KNOWERS
IS THE MAGNETIC SEED OF THE FUTURE.

- Alice A. Bailey, The Rays and the Initiations (Rule IV)

 

 

Goodwill is contagious;
once a definite start has been made in a pure and disinterested spirit,
goodwill will permeate the world,
right human relations will be rapidly established.
- Alice A. Bailey, The Rays and the Initiations, p. 752

 

 

... that Place of Love and Power will be situated on earth,
and will be publicly recognized;
the effects of that appearance and of that recognition will be terrific,
calling forth an equally terrific onslaught and effort by the Forces of Evil
unless humanity itself has first sealed "the door where evil dwells."
This must be done by the establishing of right human relations.
- Alice A. Bailey, The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 617

 

 

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral,
begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy ...
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only Light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only Love can do that.
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

 

The only safe way to destroy an enemy
is to make him your friend.
- Abraham Lincoln

... Give yourself time to withdraw, mentally, from the cares and attractions of the physical life and, in Spirit, join the company of those assembled high in the etheric peaks of life ... Be very still in mind and body, try to feel that point of light in your heart ... and receive into your heart the glorious outpouring ... and become an instrument to radiate light and love to all ....
                                                                           - White Eagle

 

 

He is the wisest who seeks God. He is the most successful who has found God.
- Paramahansa Yogananda, The Law of Success

 

 

Keep your eye on the eagle
Call down the fire
Do not look at the ground
Be centered in divinity.

- Alice A. Bailey, The Labours of Hercules (Scorpio)

 

 

O Thou who givest sustenance to the Universe
From whom all things proceed
And to whom all things return,
Unveil to us the face of the true Spiritual Sun
Hidden by a disc of golden light,
That we may know the truth and do our whole duty
As we journey to Thy Sacred Feet.
- The Gayatri

 

 

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind,
People may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends
and some true enemies; succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, there may be jealousy;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
                     - Mother Teresa

 

 

Praise and blame,
gain and loss,
pleasure and sorrow
come and go like the wind.
To be happy,
rest like a great tree
in the midst of them.
- Jack Kornfeld, Buddha's Little Instruction Book

 

 

There are three values:
Feel Good, Be Good, and Do Good.
-
Yogi Tea bag

 

 

Seven blunders from which arise the violence that plagues the world:
Wealth without work.
Pleasure without conscience.
Knowledge without character.
Commerce without morality.
Science without humanity.
Worship without sacrifice.
Politics without principles.

- Mahatma Gandhi

 

 

All kinds of austerities and penances are inferior to remaining in equanimity.
All remedies are inferior to always remaining cheerful, and
All knowledge is inferior to self-knowledge.
- Bapu

 

 

The universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice.

The language is not Narn or Human or Centauri or Gaeyem or Minbari. It speaks in the language of hope. It speaks in the language of trust. It speaks in the language of strength and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul.

And always it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors speaking through us. And the voice of our inheritors waiting to be born. It is the small still voice that says we are One. No matter the blood. No matter the skin. No matter the world. No matter the star. We are One. No matter the pain. No matter the darkness. No matter the loss. No matter the fear. We are One.

Here, gathered together in common cause, we agree to recognize this singular truth and this singular rule that we must be kind to one another because each voice enriches us and ennobles us. And each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the universe. The soul of creation. The fire that will light the way to a better future.

We are One. We are One. We are One!

- G'Kar's "Declaration of Principles for the New Alliance," Babylon 5

 

 

I have opened my heart now. I will keep it open.
- A Wise Heart

 

 

My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
- His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama

 

 

So peace will come again on Earth
but a peace unlike aught known before.
Then will the will-to-good flower forth as understanding
And understanding blossom as goodwill in men.

- Alice A. Bailey, The Reappearance of the Christ, p. 14

 

 

An act of goodwill …
  its beauty inspires,
  its fragrance uplifts and
  its seeds are carried far and wide to
  propagate further acts of goodwill.
The seeds are carried within our hearts.
The fragrance perfumed is released
  with a loving act.
                       - Denise St. Denis
