“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace & gratitude.”
– Denis Waitley
Great day everyone! I know I have neglected our soul food servings for the past week and I truly apologize. Things have been quite busy. I found this old gem and found it quite apropos. As we start our work day, and our work weeks–according to the schedules set for us by others (if you’re not fortunate enough to work for yourself), I think we all need to remember what is an illusion and what is real in our lives. Hope you enjoy!
“Money had never made man happy nor will it. There is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has, the more one wants.” – Thomas Jefferson (who was wealthy and used his wealth to enslave others, ironically :-/)
“…every time you fall, somebody’s there and every time you’d crawl, somebody’s there and you almost got burned but somebody was there so you never had to learn ’cause someone was there. Aint nobody gonna save you, savior self..” – Cree Summer, Savior Self
Today’s Soul Food just reminds me of something my mother always told me, “God helps those who help themselves” and also a saying that is prevalent in Islam “If you take one step toward Allah, He takes two steps toward you”. Sometimes we have to remember to put in the work to be the change and make the change we want in our lives or to be the one to help others rather than relying on everyone to be that for us. When we can help ourselves we can better serve others, and vice versa. Be blessed! 🙂
