Caring for the Family of Man

“What the world needs is some do-give-a-damn pills.”
~ Dr. William Menninger

Just as physical pain is necessary to protect us from harm, emotional pain is necessary to lead us to find and express our compassion and love for our fellow human beings. I don’t want society and politics to numb me so much that I do not notice their pain and mine. I want it treated and cared for personally and for the family of man.

So next time you feel your stomach growling and go get something to eat, think about the emotional and physical hunger that is being felt around the world—as well as next door—and know that you can make a difference. As the song says, “What the world needs now is love sweet love—that’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.” We have had enough of wars, so let’s stop fighting and start loving today.

Peace and Love,
Bernie

As St. Francis of Assisi’s prayer begins,
“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love.”

    I went to Boston to see/hear Kubler- Ross. They announced that she had a heart attack and was unable to be there. I was so disappointed! Then they announced that someone named Bernie Siegel would be taking her place. OK, I said to myself, I’ll wait and see what he has to say. Well….. he exceeded my expectations! Bernie changed my life that day. I read all of his books. I went to every one of his presentations that I could. To say I’m a fan is an understatement. He helped me survive cancer. I am a reiki Master because of him. I’ve shared his books and philosophy with many people. And will continue to make his loving ideas of healing my life work. Thank You Bernie!!!
