Mahatma Gandhi

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. -Mahatma Gandhi

An indomitable will can drive an athlete to break world records. It can make a leader unite nations. It can inspire a mother to travel as long as it takes to find safety for her children. It motivates a nation to land on the moon. Surely an indomitable will can do wonders. 

Mahatma Gandhi is called the Great Soul. His indomitable will inspired justice and self-rule to return to a British Colony. But, what else besides the indomitable will did Gandhi have? What about his faith in the supreme being, God, the Universe, the Creative Energy, whatever name you want to give it? Gandhi led and inspired an entire people with his profound belief of what is right and just. Without trust in the goodness of people how could he have fasted for days to stop the violence that was happening across the Indian subcontinent? Without faith in himself and in the higher power, how could a man reach beyond himself to influence and inspire so many with beauty and grace?

During this festive time of the year, I send you my warmest wishes. May you feel the God, Universe, the Creative Energy present within you always. May the indomitable will of yours be supplemented by the unfathomable divinity that carries you each moment.
