We are not to going to get into a negative mindset. We are not going to follow the crowd of negativity. We are going to believe, we are going to love, we are going to give even if it hurts, even if it’s hard, even if we’re going against the pattern of the current tide.

Thank you for helping me and all of us — focus on a great sense of unity and love for the entire world. We can do it together, hand in hand.

We are not going to accept the negative train of thought, we’re going to focus on positivity.

I will not be swayed by negative politics, I will use politics for a positive voice.

I will not by swayed by sexual harassment, I will keep my life and my mind pure. I will not be swayed by selfish business dealings, I will do business for the good of the world.

I will not be swayed by evil, I will make ethical choices at all points. I will not be saddened by divorce, I will be loving to everyone I meet.

Do not accept what the world is telling, love instead.

Choose Love,

Pamela

The Classic Pamela Positive: “What Is My Life If I Am No Longer Useful to Others” – Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

 

“What is my life if I am no longer useful to others?” 

— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

If you have ever lacked purpose, or feel out of alignment, know your life has purpose.  You don’t have to wait to find it.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is one of our most renowned writers, philosophers, and literary creators. He came from a wealthy family; he didn’t need to do a lot if he didn’t want to.  But he used his skills to create literature that made us think.  Additionally, top leaders of the day came to him to hear his thoughts, which were profound and inspirational. So not only did he create excellent works of literary art, but he also engaged world leaders with his deep thinking. They became better people, because of him. They sought him out for his thoughts.

We can learn from Goethe. The whole purpose of Life, and your life, is to bring some sort of goodness to the world.

Yes, it’s that simple. You might get a Ph.D.

But you might also simply smile peacefully

and joyously to all that come your way.

Both change the world.  One is immediate, one is long-term.

The point is your life can and must be useful to others.

Stop the boredom, the frustration, the hurt. Your life is needed now. Give your smile and devote your life to doing good. Goethe got it right!

 


Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was one of the rare giants of world literature. Throughout a long and full life, he demonstrated his prolific genius in many different areas. Goethe was born August 28, 1749, in Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany, to a wealthy, middle-class family. He was educated at home by his father and tutors until he went to Leipzig to study law. Following his university graduation, Goethe returned to Frankfurt. His mind was filled with many exciting ideas, and he devoted himself to philosophical studies. It was here that he wrote his first important metrical drama and then the superb short novel. These aroused widespread interest and admiration.

On his return to Germany Goethe lived in a state of semi-retirement and concentrated on his studies, writing and cultivate his wide interests. In 1806 Goethe married a woman who was his mistress for many years, and had a son in 1789. As the years passed he became acquainted with many of the most prominent men of his time and was highly regarded by all. Napoleon Bonaparte was among his most famous admirers and remarked when they first met, “Vous êtes un homme,” (You are a man). By the time of his death, Goethe had attained a position of unprecedented esteem in the literary and intellectual circles. Because of the breadth of his thought, his comprehension of human nature and optimistic faith in the human spirit, and his intuitive grasp of universal truths, Goethe is regarded by many as the outstanding poet of the modern world. He died March 22, 1832, but his work lives in its meaning and value for modern day readers.

The Classic Pamela Positive: Dag Hammarskjold Gives Hope to the World

 

Dag Hammarskjold was such a wonderful model of what the U.N. can be and do. As Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1953 to 1961, Hammarskjold was known for his unrelenting energy given to fairness, peace and collaboration. He represented hope and reconciliation throughout many corners of our world.

 

Hammarskjold supported countries whether or not there was an economic interest, as it should be.  Equitable involvement for all countries was his philosophy.

For example in the Suez Crisis, when Egypt nationalized the canal, Hammarskjold was able to broker French, British and Egyptian collaboration to keep it open. Meanwhile, Israel attacked Egypt and the peace process was upset. With Mr. Hammarskjold’s leadership, U.N. Forces were able to maintain a peaceful solution until a longer term solution was reached.

 

In endangered Laos, he was able to place UN representatives there, which provided watchful protection. He also became part of a very long-term process against apartheid, meeting several times with the Union of South Africa, opening up attitudes of equality and fairness regarding race.

Hammarskjold’s last challenge was the crisis in the Congo where violent civil war was ensuing. Here he had brokered leaders meeting in neutral territory to resolve the conflict. Unfortunately, his plane was shot down and he did not survive.

 

Dag Hammarskjold was mourned by the world. He was seen as an extremely strong leader led by principles; tireless and needing little sleep.

It was as if he were “on call” for the world.

 

“The world in which I grew up in was dominated by principles and ideals…I inherited a belief that no life was more satisfactory than one of selfless service to your country or humanity.  This sacrifice required a sacrifice of all personal interests, but likewise the courage to stand up unflinchingly for your convictions.”

 

 

 

Hammarskjold also created a meditation room or peace room in the U.N.  It is a place only for thoughts, no words, and embraces all types of prayers.  There is a stone in the middle of the room with nothing on it, and yet a shaft of light shines directly there.  It is dedicated as an altar to harmony and freedom that is worshipped in many forms, by different countries and peoples, in many varied ways all over the world.

Dag Hammarskjold was an economist and diplomat who was the second Secretary-General of the United Nations. He was born in Jönköping and grew up in Uppsala. His father was Hjalmar Hammarskjöld, the Prime Minister of Sweden from 1914 to 1917. By the age of 25, he had already received a Licentiate of Philosophy and his Master of Laws degree. After receiving his Ph.D. in Economics, Hammarskjold began serving his country in various roles from state secretary in the Ministry of Finance to being vice chairman of of the Swedish delegation to the United Nations General Assembly. In becoming Secretary-General, he received an unexpected nomination from the Secretary Council (with China abstaining) and he surprised everyone with his knowledge of the United Nations’ affairs when accepting his nominations. He’s widely considered to be one of the two best Secretary-Generals of the United Nations. During his tenure, he made sure to promote peace and equality both within and outside the United Nations. Hammarskjold promoted peace in Congo and he was unexpectedly killed en route to a trip there. After his death, he was rewarded a Nobel Prize.
