Invisible Acts of Power: Personal Choices That Create Miracles
Caroline Myss

1 "Everything we do COUNTS. There is really no such thing as a small act of service or goodness. This is in accord with most of the world's spiritual traditions."

2 "Service to others is not only a social ideal, it is a spiritual ideal and a spiritual necessity. Virtually all world spiritual traditions tell us that we serve the divine through caring for other people."

3 "Faith is an active force – not a passive one – an invisible power, like love."

4 "You have to CHOOSE to make the best of a difficult situation and to trust that a reason beyond your understanding is always at work."

5 "You will continually find yourself with opportunities to acknowledge that all of us are one until you make it a part of your life creed and act according to its promptings."

6 "The spirit within us has faith that our needs will always be met."

7 "We each are an individual fragment of a collective soul and are called to help each other, to live with a compassionate awareness of all of humanity."

8 "I can see that the power of prayer and intention – theirs, yours, mine – forges the grace that holds our world together."

9 "A seed for transformation exists within the soul of each act of goodness."

10 "Our heart's primary task, of course, is to recognize our own spirit in every stranger and to 'love our neighbor as ourselves.'"

11 "There are no such things as coincidences or accidents. Look for the meaning in your synchronistic enounters."

12 "Know that underlying the storm is peace, and under the chaos is order. Use the power of faith as your anchor: faith that there is a reason why things happen as they do; faith that you will make it through a crisis; faith that you are moving forward to a better place."

13 "Somehow even in the midst of the worst chaos, the universe still provides a map for our survival."

14 "We all are one and even if those specific words are not taught to us, we develop an inner sense of their spiritual truth."

15 "Science and religion tell us that we are energetically interdependent; that matter and energy are the same throughout the universe. Our spiritual interconnectedness and intuitive signals form, in effect, an energetic Internet."

16 "Have benevolence toward all living beings, joy at the sight of the virtuous, compassion and sympathy for the afflicted, and tolerance towards the indolent and ill-behaved." Tattvarthasutra 7:11 (Jainism)

17 "We are not alone in this world and even in the direst times, our prayers are heard and answered."

18 "The great power of compassion, honor, and grace still exists, even in the middle of national and world crises."

19 "Being of service is not an option, it is a biological necessity. Every kind action we do for someone is a reanimation of our own life force – and of the other person's. Many spiritual traditions share the Golden Rule: treat others as you would like to be treated.'"

20 "Politeness serves a purpose…civility and kindness are moral imperatives." Jane Austen

21 "The virtue of the universe is wholeness. It regards all things as equal." Tao Te Ching

22 "We are spiritually responsible for each other and we are meant to discover and nurture the divine that exists within each person."

23 "Choose to seek the spiritual presence in every moment and situation of your life. Even the smallest positive action can help someone heal."

24 "The ancient Greek philosopher Epictetus wrote, 'The universe is but one great city, full of beloved ones, divine and human by nature, endeared to each other.'"

25 "There is no such thing as a simple act of compassion or an inconsequential act of service. Everything we do for another person has infinite consequences. Every action gives rise to a ripple effect, just as a pebble that is tossed into a pond sends out wave after wave, widening and covering more and more space."
