We must emulate the change we wish to see in the world

From love comes compassion, this is an extremely noble trait. It is one of the thirteen traits attributed to the Holy One, Blessed be He, as it is written: "Compassionate and gracious."
All that one can do in cultivating this trait, one should exert themself to do. Just as one would want compassion in his time of need, so should one have compassion on others who are in need. ***

According to Rabbi Luzzato, (The Path of the Just), and paraphrased by the author of Everyday Holiness,Alan Morinis, “Laziness, excessive deliberation, rationalization, and the pursuit of material pleasures ALL deplete enthusiasm. Before closing the list, Rabbi Luzzato brings us one more factor to watch out for: anxiety.
Worrying and fretting can also deplete spiritual energy. In fact, anxiety is often what underlies other things we do that sap our enthusiasm. After all, Isn't it our fears and worries that send us searching after shelter from the (real or imagined) storm, and right into the arms of Madison Avenue and its commercial masters?"

We all have one Teacher one Creator, have faith, and don't worry!

Walt,

Thanks for the timely reminder. I must confess that I used to be a worry queen till I learnt to let go, see things from the right perspective and to realize that it is up to me to live life to the max and to do my part to change if I want to see any change anywhere.

cheers
