Mother Teresa – Her Own Heart-filled Words

bfcb9902aa52b75a2dca319ec3e9baa7Mother Teresa says, “If you really want to know the poor, you must know what is poverty…”

She says,”There are two kinds of poverty. We have the poverty of the material, for example like in India and Ethiopia and other places, where the people are hungry for a loaf of bread and real hunger.  But there is a much deeper, much greater hunger.  And that is the hunger for love and that terrible loneliness and being unwanted, unloved… being abandoned by everybody.  And some people you find in, what you call them, shut-ins, people that are sleeping in the streets of London and are found in the homes.  Maybe that kind of “unwanted-ness,” unloved {person}.  Maybe in our own homes, we may have somebody who is handicapped like that and nobody takes any notice.  Nobody even recognizes that there is this child, this man, this woman who is hungry for love, hungry to be recognized and to accept with respect and love the person.”  In the video below, she speaks from her heart.

After thirty years of teaching Inner City, Special Education students and forty-five years of metaphysical studies, I have decided to share my life's philosophical understandings on this wonderful website. For me, everything in my life has been a spiritual experience from being raised in an alcoholic household, to marriage and teaching, and finally caring for an Alzheimer parent. I have sought at least fifteen, personal psychic readings to try and assist me as a wife, teacher and caretaker. I want to share the wisdom that I have gained from following the valuable spiritual guidance from my inner knowing and from heeding the advise of channeled answers from trusted psychics. At almost 70 years old, I am writing, traveling and enjoying retirement in Florida.
