A Message for Haiti

On behalf of the Brahma Kumaris, I would like to extend a message of hope and empowerment to the people of Haiti all over the world and especially to those living in Haiti. We are with you in our thoughts and with our hearts.

Being actively involved in the work of the Brahma Kumaris has given me the opportunity to work closely with the Haitian people in the Dominican Republic and to visit Haiti twice, recently.

One of the most heartwarming abilities of the Haitian people that I have met and worked with, is their camaraderie, their love and understanding of the deeper truths of life and their ability to be light, creative and artistic  -- even under extreme circumstances. They are a people that are deeply spiritual from the core of their being.

The family of humanity is passing through some extremely challenging times, and we will be able to go through that turmoil of change by strengthening our internal spiritual potential and by accessing the power and wisdom that come from the Supreme, God. Clarity of mind and purity of heart will help us deal with the difficulties that life brings in front of us.

For the whole of humanity it is a time for deep reflection and spiritual development. It is a time to revise the way we position ourselves in this world and to be clear about our aim in life. Time is calling us to emerge our innate nature of peace and to  actively use our spiritual power and capacity to love. Time is requesting us to show our generosity of spirit.

Wishing you all the courage, faith and wisdom during this challenging time.
