Lessons from the Quaker Way of Life

Written by on November 13, 2011 in Healing - No comments

I recently came across A Little Book of Quaker Wisdom.   The book concludes with a list of suggestions in living the Quaker way of life.

Seize the present…..

Love yourself, whatever faults you have, and love the world, however bad it is…..

Stop talking and listen to what you really know…..

Play soccer! (or whatever team sport you like)…..

Accept the fact that our lives are only partly in our own hands…..

Believe in the perfectibility of yourself and society…..

Make your love visible in the world through your work…..

Seek justice in the world, but now in your own life…..

Look for the light of God in every person…..

Let your life speak…..
