Inspiration from Others

26 Jan 2010

People who share their life experiences often offer others new ways of looking at the world from a different perspective.  They may also ignite inspiration and a desire to change.  All great teachers have done this for humanity over the ages. 

Recently I borrowed a book from the local library called, “Moving Forward” by Dave Pelzer.  I had never heard of Dave Pelzer before but after reading the book I learnt that he had written a best seller by the title, ‘A Child Called “It”’.  I discovered a person who had survived extreme childhood abuse, and has gone on to help and educate others in living meaningful and loving lives. 

Here is a paragraph from his book that encourages self awareness. 

“Try this: From this moment on, I want you to be conscious of your walk, your body language, the tone of your voice, what you say for the world to hear, and, most importantly, what you say that only you and God know.  Be self-aware, and while doing so keep with you an ounce of faith.  Be consistent and give it a little time, and then watch your world unfold.”

As I read these words I was reminded of bringing mindfulness into every day life.  Living as Dave Pelzer encourages can be done through a daily meditation practice.  Thank you Dave Pelzer, for your inspiring words.
