It is said of people who are filled with hate, violence and the spirit of destruction, that where they go the grass does not grow back. This is an image, but it is not an exaggeration. Clearly, this image is symbolic, yet it is no exaggeration. Contrast these with other beings, who are filled with love and kindness and leave such beneficial imprints along their way that those who come after them feel enlightened, comforted and revitalized.
May the knowledge of this truth inspire in you the desire to appear as a beneficial presence. No matter where you are, for at least a few moments, think of expressing your highest wishes. Say, ‘May all those who come here be touched by light! Since they are all children of God, may they be inspired to work for peace and brotherhood!’ For those that are dear to you, is it necessary to remind you to wish them well? Do you need to be reminded to wish the very best for those who are dear to you? No, you do that spontaneously because of your feelings for them. So why not also think of expressing your best wishes spontaneously to the whole world.
