"Try saying this silently to everyone and everything you see for thirty days: |
'I wish you happiness now and whatever will bring happiness to you in the future.'
If we said it to the sky, we would have to stop polluting; if we said it when we see ponds and lakes and streams, we would have to stop using them as garbage dumps and sewers; if we said it to small children, we would have to stop abusing them, even in the name of training; if we said it to people, we would have to stop stoking the fires of enmity around us. Beauty and human warmth would take root in us like a clear, hot June day.
We would change."
-- Sister Joan Chittister
"If you want to change the world - or the culture - all you have to do is change the conversation.
In the beginning was the word -- that was how the Bible started. Asking the question of what is true wealth invites people to have a conversation they may never have had before. That itself is a measure a wealth! The value of our coming together can be measured by whether or not we are able to have a conversation we have not had before.
A conversation is an action."
