The Quotidian, October 22, 2010 ~ Come Alive

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~ Howard Thurman (1899 to April 10, 1981)

Dr. Howard Thurman was an American author, philosopher, theologian, and civil rights activist. According to Wikipedia, Dr. Thurman “wrote 20 books, and in 1944 helped found the first… integrated, multicultural church in the United States.”

Spiritual Networks is a social networking site for spiritually- oriented people including entrepreneurs. Love and Light Network is a network of “heart-centered service providers who believe in healing” people and the world. Both websites are aiding transformation; I recommend them!

  1. Great quote!!
    Not to get too irreverent, but when I read this, I thought of the song “Stayin’ Alive”. Kind of sheds an entirely different light on that song, doesn’t it? 😉
    And that last sentence kind of sheds a light on my age.
    Geez — I’m old…

    Write on!

  2. After I read your comment, I had that song cycling through my head for over an hour!

    Classic soundtrack. Makes me smile.

    Write on! Best wishes, Andy
