You are good enough to make a difference

"Any human who feels that he or she is not 'good enough' to cultivate peace and generosity is overlooking the wondrous gift of life. You live, therefore you are good enough."

-Dhyani Ywahoo, Voices of Our Ancestors

Is it me or does this almost come across like a challenge or something? I think it was intended to be inspirational, but it seems like it can also be read as saying "Why aren't you taking your life and what you can do with it seriously? What's your excuse, anyway?"


  1. Ha ha ha, you're right; that does sound a little snarky or osmething. If he didn't use the term "you" in it, it might sound less accusative. :)

  2. Id say the opposite is closer to the truth

    1. To be clear i think nonliving is the real issue... to claim religion is the only means to feel goodwill toward humanity is arrogant. When i go to meals on wheels or take care of the elderly i do it because it feels good to be generosity. Not bc fear of hell or promise of paradise or demands of scripture

    2. People take part in generosity out of sheer humanity not religion
