This quotation that came from The American Monk is awesome. Followed by all people it would change the world. Unfortunately, we know that the message won't be followed by masses nor even by very small groups. How do we know this, or am I being pessimistic? I don't think so. The fact is Jesus taught the same principles two thousand years ago, and the world still operates on a 'me first' or at times a 'me only' basis. Where does this leave us? Is there any hope for our world? Decide for yourself. "Listen with the ears of tolerance
see with the eyes of compassion,
speak with the language of love."
Is there hope for the world? Only God knows the answer. Improvement, however, is the responsibility of the individual. What can I do?
