Once lived a man of undeniable moral character. He worked as all men do, but he worked harder than most. At the age of 17 he enlisted in the Marine Corps, a rough, tough and utmost honorable branch of service. His son and grandson would soon follow his lead. He lived within the sphere of light.
After serving in Korea, and being one of very few Marines to step onto Chinese soil, he served in Vietnam. Soon after, he had five children, all of which he guided and molded to learn his lessons and be his own givers of wisdom to the world. I remember one story in particular that shows the grace and selflessness that I was so blessed to know of my grandfather.
Upon moving to Oklahoma from Texas, his children needed new school clothes. Very little money was in hand. A family friend lived in Amarillo; a 5 hour drive from town. Without worry or hesitation, he drove his motorcycle through the rain and wind to get new clothes for his five children the day before school started, then drove back the same night. How many men today would perform such a thing?Sadly, I doubt many would.
In the sphere of light we have many men and women who go above and beyond to give all the love that they can to everyone. We have many who do not feed the ego, or needless want. Many do exist in this world who will, no matter, give all they have with no question. I wish we all could join this number, as the few who make the most loving impact on humanity need our help. These are the ones who make the world great, in their simple ethic of love.
We only need to give all that we have in order to receive all that we need. In giving love, we need nothing in return. We have an unlimited supply of this awesome power if we only choose to see it. Selfless thought, dignity and compassion will determine where humanity dwells in the future.
I beg all to choose wisely, and look to the world for what is needed most. Think not of the self. We find the soul when we free our hearts to witness and embrace true devotion to help and heal. We then become the lighthouse of the world.
