Faith in others gives them power to do their best.

Message for the day 

Expression: When there is faith in others, one is able to provide an environment for others' growth. All resources are used to give support for others. There is no interference in others' work and no feeling to take over others' responsibility. Instead it helps to provide them with the power to deal with their own problems.

Experience: When I have faith, I am able to see what is lacking in others and fill in with it. I don't complain but am able to see positivity instead. I provide with what is necessary and I have patience too. I am free from expectations for them to bring about a change immediately.

Natural Qualities and Acquired Qualities 

When we look at ourselves from outside we can only see the surface of what we have become. We can't see or perhaps cannot even imagine the inner core (center), which, like in the example of the coconut, is the only part that really can nourish us and give us energy. The shell (in the case of the coconut) serves as a protection but we certainly can't eat it.

In our case, the core (center) consists of natural or inner qualities such as peace, love, power, truth, happiness and so on. The shell is the ego which consists of features or personality characteristics we have acquired through the journey of our lives such as experiences, abilities, memories, learning, habits and beliefs – in short, all that we are referring to when we say: 'I am so-and-so, from such-and-such family or organization or city'.

While we are limited to these acquired characteristics, our true qualities remain inaccessible. Through deep reflection and meditation we can break the shell and activate our inner qualities from which our values or principles are born.

In Spiritual Service,
