But there are so many more, people who may not have public acclaim and who live quiet lives, yet who are without question doing God’s work. They reveal a state of mind and heart centered on the desire for peaceful cooperation and mutual benefit. They, too, are saints.

Such people are in every walk of life, from education to law enforcement to the arts, to speakers on consciousness, to librarians and gardeners, to trash collectors and farmers and bookstore owners, to housewives and accountants, to people who have retired and people who explore the cosmos, to a child with Down’s Syndrome, to a loving parent, to someone who cares about wildlife, to anyone who seeks the betterment of our earth and all the creatures on it.

Ultimately, they inspire us to be more than we imagined we could be.

THIS is their secret: They all reveal the feeling of joy that is in us, for we in turn recognize it in them.

I honor those who seek to help others and this world. You are likely one of them in your own unique way, even if you don’t know it, or you wouldn’t be reading this article.
