In the foreground

Why rush so much? Why acquire more money, power or prestige?

Answer me with honesty: does this make you happier, more peaceful, more fulfilled?

Love your loved ones, be good to those who deserve it and need it, be charitable toward strangers or adversaries, be kind toward everyone.

Follow your vocation, even if only in your spare time. Use your free time to meditate, pray and study. Learn as much as you can.

Do not put off your dreams. Dedicate yourself to a humanitarian or philanthropic ideal. Become today the person you want to be tomorrow.

But all this, without pretensions, without anxieties, without fears, without anger: put your ego aside. The ego at the forefront is a bad advisor, a vampire of joy, a killer of the best intentions.

Always put your heart first — I said: always!

Where there is love, stripped of the surreptitious interests of personal gain, there is God. Where there is no love, there is no life, there is no meaning, there is nothing… except anguish, disappointment, despair and death…
