The most striking thing about Saint Teresa of Calcutta is her simple slogan and sign language used when asked why on earth she was doing what she did… scrounging for souls in the blackest alleyways the world over.
Her answer, five fingers of her tiny palm spread out, practically in your face would be : Five words : You did it to Me.
She served her God through action. She believed that whenever you do anything good for a fellow human being, no matter how small and insignificant, you were doing an act of worship. Literally, you are recognizing and serving the God (or the image of God) who resides in the least of all creatures.
As an agnostic, or one who doesn’t believe blindly everything that a particular religion professes, these five words form the essence of a spirituality that transcends the narrow confines of religious sectarianism, or cults, or denominations or what have you. The argument is a simple one. Do you believe that there is a soul, a spark of divinity there in a human being? Do you believe that spark represents the great force of positive energy that you may call “God’ or “Brahman” or “Shakti”?
Then, how you behave with your neighbour (-that means the guy next to you, yes even that stinky toothless beggar-) determines whether you will be compassionate and contribute to that the strength of the GREAT FORCE of positive energy; or whether you will ignore him or worse, despise him and lend power to the DARK SIDE.
Like Yoda the Elf, the diminutive Mother Teresa of Calcutta has been now revealed as one of the highest ranking Jedi knights, victorious after battling the darkness within herself. In the years to come, thousands will be inspired by the myths and folklore that will, doubtless be added to the ongoing, eternal story of the little woman in a white and blue sari, our own new and resplendent Saint Teresa of Calcutta.
