destined to serve

“I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.”

Albert Schweitzer

Common cause …

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.”  Joseph Campbell

Joseph Campbell was a noted mythologist who wrote the book “The power of myth” which examined many of the faces of religion in the world today.    Campbell tried to connect the stories from many religions to see where there were common points.    What was the true experience of those who lived thousands of years before us?   What did they discover that we are still searching for?

In a world as complex as ours is today we can easily get lost in the machines in the world as well as the machines in our mind.   We get lost in the noise of life and forget what it is really like to live.

Not far away is an island, an island that was rocked so violently that it shattered the lives of many people.   Lives that mattered and lives that still matter are shaking in the aftermath of tragedy.    

Power is realized when one heart in one part of the world unites their heart with the suffering heart in another part of the world.  Power is unleashed that can change what is right now and create something that will reflect the beauty of hearts united in a common cause.
