Being Friendly, Generous and Compassionate People

I posted these quotes in 2006, and just found them today. I wanted to repost them because I feel they are so important.

The movie, Patch Adams, was a true inspiration to my life. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and borrow it or rent it. Its based on his life.Its not 100% accurate but totally inspiring film.

“The most revolutionary act you can commit in today’s society is to be publicly HAPPY.”

“If compassion and generosity were the measure of success that MONEY and POWER are now, how would your life change?”

“Do you dare to be universally friendly to end violence?”

“If being publicly joyful, even silly, were beneficial for our society, would you participate?”

Its interesting that I am penning this on Halloween Day. I love that today people are wearing “costumes” and allow themselves one day a year to look “silly”. ( which I think looks great!). I wear a “costume” every day and its FUN.
I wear rainbow colors head to toe and it makes people smile. Why couldn’t we wear costumes one day a week, just for FUN? I know most of us wouldn’t do it, but what if we broke out of our comfort zone and beliefs about how you are supposed to look for one day other than one day a year? It might make you smile and others too!
Wow! To have a world of adults having more fun and joy! What a concept! The child that we once were, is still within us and wants to have more good, clean fun with NO guilt!
