A Daybook for Inspiration

Written originally as a daily journal to herself, Julie Fisher-McGarry has published her thoughts in the form of a small book, "Be the Change You Want to See in the World." As each month approaches, a new theme unfolds. October's "harmonious balance" is followed by November's "appreciation" and December's "peace and reflection." Filled with women's health & household tips, vegetarian recipes, verses of poetry and green facts -- her daybook is a breezy read, filled with uplifting thoughts to help us all lead a compassionate, conscious life. As the title of her work is directly lifted from Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi, (1869 - 1948), I was a little surprised to see that she does not acknowledge this anywhere. Available in bookstores, or via Amazon. /m

I think all these sayings just become so widespread that people forget who said them. I've also seen Nelson Mandela's inaugural speech out there, misquoted, and wrongly attributed. People are like goldfish sometimes, 3 second-memories..

~wouldn't be including myself in that, of course!! ;-)

Hi Chandira,
Ha - goldfish:)

In this instance, I'm just surprised that the author didn't credit Gandhi -- since it is the title of her book, and her book is all about inspiration.

peace, /m

Unfortunately, it happens a lot out there in the 'spiritual' scene, I could name a famous recent movie that was based on 'true events', only not true events that happened to the writer, but to my own spiritual master, of whom the film maker was a student for a few years.
But so long as it gets the message out, I suppose it's all good. Better than some things I can think of. :-)
