Welcome to the Richard Carlson Memorial page. We created this page to maintain a place for the many people who loved Richard to celebrate his life as a true inspiration to the planet.
The last column Richard wrote for the newspapers, due to come out
December 18, 2006, still on his desktop is entitled: "Fill your Life with Love."
In his own words he said:
"The shortest distance between two points is an intention and this is certainly the case when it comes to becoming more loving to oneself and to others. We must first have the desire and then the intention and commitment to be a source of love---this means that rather than waiting for the world to be more loving, we decide that we will be the first one to reach out and act loving—no matter what!"
Richard Carlson was a man, and is a spirit who knows much about Loving Kindness. He walked the earth generously spreading as much love and kindness in small ways, as well as big ways, as humanly possible. He was selfless with his heart, generous with his pocketbook, and most of all, he reached out with his spirit. Richard Carlson was unchanged by his super success, and lived from his value system with the highest regard for integrity and choosing the purest actions.
We talked often about how we, as individuals, could do little to change others in the world except through our example and taking personal responsibility for our own responses, actions, happiness and contentment. In this way, we can change the world one person at a time!
"Ask yourself: Is there any way I can become even more loving than I am? Can I fill my heart with more loving kindness? Can you, despite the fact that there are less than perfect people in our world, think loving thoughts about yourself and about others? Spread that love around as far as your mind will allow!"
Please remember that Richard Carlson left his own trail as he walked the earth and lived a life devoted to peace, love, and the betterment of humanity.
