“My Life is My Message” Gandhi

In his book Effortless Success, Michael Neill shares this: There’s a story about a reporter that wanted to talk with Mahatma Gandhi so he eagerly followed him to a train station.
As Gandhi was boarding the train, the reporter said, “Mahatma Gandhi, please, sir, a message for your people.”
Gandhi replied out, “My life is my message.”
Michael Neill then asks the reader to inquire: If your life were a message, what would your message be?
Try to set your ego aside and honestly ask yourself – as things are now, what message are you putting across in your life?
And then contemplate what message you want your life to reflect. As author, educator and activist Parker J. Palmer says “Let your life speak.”
