CREEDENDA - from "The Gift of Acabar"


Turn away from the crowd and its fruitless pursuit of fame and gold
Never look back as you close your door to the sorry tumult of greed and ambition
Wipe away your tears of failure and misfortune
Lay aside your heavy load and rest until your heart is still
Be at peace
Already it is later than you think, for your earthly life at best
Is only a blink of an eye between two eternities
Be unafraid
NOTHING here can harm you except yourself
Do that which you dread and cherish those victories with pride
Concentrate your energy
To be everywhere is to be nowhere
Be jealous with your time – it is your greatest treasure
Reconsider your goals
Before you set your heart too much on anything,
Examine how happy they are who already possess them what you desire
Love your family and count your blessings
Reflect on how eagerly they would be sought if you did not have them
Put aside your impossible dreams and complete your task at hand
No matter how distasteful (they are)
All great achievements come from working and waiting
God’s delays and never God’s denials
Hold on. Hold fast
Know that your paymaster is always near
What you sow, good or evil is that you will reap
Never blame your condition on others
You are what you are through your own choice alone
Learn to live with honest poverty, if you must
And turn to more important matters than transporting gold to your grave
Never trouble halfway, anxiety is the rust of life
When you add to tomorrow’s burden, their weight becomes unbearable
Avoid the mourner’s bench and give thanks instead, for your defeats
You would not receive them if you did not need them
Always learn from others
He who teaches himself is a fool for a master
Be careful. Do not overload your conscience
Conduct your life as if it was spent in an arena filled with tattlers
Avoid boasting, if you see anything in you that puffs you with pride
Look closer, you will find more than enough to make you humble
Be wise.
Realize that all men are not created equal
For there is no equality in nature
Work everyday as if it were your first
Yet tenderly treat the lives you touch as if it will end at midnight
Love everyone, even those who deny you, for hate is a luxury you cannot afford
Yet no man was ever born whose work was not born with him
Seek out those in need.
Learn that he who delivers with one hand will always gather with two.
Be of good cheer
Above all, remember that very little is needed to make a happy life
Look up. Cling simply to God and journey quietly on your pathway
To forever with charity and smile
When you depart it will be said by all
That your legacy was a better world than the one that you found.
