[07/27/11] The quickest way to find love is to give love. If you want it too badly, you will not find it. The most secure way to keep love is to give it space and care to grow. If you hold it too tightly, you will lose it.
What could you not accept, if you but knew that everything that happens, all events, past, present, and to come, are gently planned by One Whose only purpose is your good?
[07/21/11] You can worry to no end about what you don't have. Or you can marvel at God's breathtaking gifts: the morning dew, the sun, the clouds, the trees, the flowers, the birds. Could you create any of these? These miracles of life are always around you, ready to be celebrated, ready to be welcomed into your life. Sometimes we just need to stop and smell the roses!
You feel pleasure when you want something and you get it. Or when you don't want something and you remove it. Pleasure is always relative. Happiness is absolute. Happiness is the understanding and acceptance of life as it is in this very moment as completely perfect, because every creation of God is perfect. The degree to which you do not accept life in all of the Divine forms is the degree to which you suffer.
[07/18/11] When we are quiet, we can hear God's messages to us. Sometimes these messages may be in the form of subtle intuition. Sometimes it may feel like an inner knowing. Sometimes we may hear a 'still, small voice.' If it feels right in your heart, trust that it is God speaking to you. God is Still Speaking... Are We Listening?
[07/14/11] Perhaps the greatest happiness in life is knowing that you are loved for who you are, and sometimes in spite of who you are. Be sure to tell a friend that they are loved.. for just the way they are!
[06/30/11] Feel God's light shining within you and take a step to inspire someone else to shine. As you share this vision today with just one soul, that reaches ten lives that touch a thousand.
[06/27/11] What you really want is happiness. You might believe that a fat bank account will get you there, but that's false. Happy people are happy rich or poor, unhappy people are unhappy rich or poor. Money simply masks your real being by giving you activities to occupy your mind. Don't fool yourself, recession or not, your true wealth comes from your heart and is always only there.
[06/23/11] I am convinced that human nature is basically affectionate and good. If our behavior follows our kind and loving nature, immense benefits will result, not only for ourselves, but also for the society to which we belong. I generally refer to this sort of love and affection as a universal religion. Everyone needs it, believers as much as non-believers. This attitude constitutes the very basis of morality.
[06/14/11] Sure, there is time to invest yourself fully into work, but there is equally important time for joyful resting. And for you, this time is now. What is the absolutely most wonderful little treat you can give yourself? Do it today.
[06/07/11] Look into your heart and be honest about all the people in your past who have harmed you in any way. Where there is pain, practice pardon. Forgiveness is the very foundation of spiritual awakening. - Dr. Wayne Dyer
[06/06/11] "We have to learn to be our own best friends because we fall too easily into the trap of being our own worst enemies."... Take it easy on yourself...
[06/02/11] Just as a reminder... there are many ways to climb a mountain right? There are also many ways to worship God. There are many ways to live a life. Allow each person to choose their own path.
[05/28/11] You want your relationships to be grounded on accepting each other as you are. On supporting each other through the inevitable ups and downs. On challenging each other to become more, to grow, to flourish. Which one of these is the more difficult one for you, and how are you going to practice it in the next 24 hours?
[05/25/11] You can only give away what you have inside: True giving happens when you are overflowing from the inside, and cannot help but share. When there is so much love within you that it has to flow to others or you would burst open. There is no thinking involved, no willpower in such sharing. It just flows out. If you have to force yourself to be kind, to love, to feel compassion, you've missed the first step.
[05/21/11] All emotions grow in size...Practice love to have more love, practice hate to have more hate. Practice kindness to have more kindness, practice depression to have more depression. The choice is yours as always.
[05/20/11] When you feel down, take a look at yourself through God's eyes...There are times when no matter how hard you try, you just cannot accept yourself as you are. During such times, think of how you look to God's eyes. In God's eyes, there is no judgment, there is only acceptance. God sees your light when all that you can see are your shadows. God loves you more than anyone could ever love you as you really are.
There are many Truths... and they all seem to be directed back to God....
Do not spend energy arguing whose truth is righter, - just like all life springs forth from one source, so are all truths but a reflection of God. Accept another truth as another way of loving God.
Great Read: Take a look at the Third Area... Discusses 'Normal Brains'... hmmm

[05/16/11] I think human nature is basically good: though we have jealousy and hatred, our dominant characteristics seem to be affection and kindness.
[05/14/11] To free yourself from a problem you have to acknowledge it and face it with your eyes and heart open.
[05/12/11] Message from the Dalai Lama: Some people automatically associate morality and altruism with a religious vision of the world. But I believe it is a mistake to think that morality is an attribute only of religion. We can imagine two types of spirituality: one tied to religion, while the other arises spontaneously in the human heart as an expression of love for our neighbors and a desire to do them good.
[05/11/11] All too often loud events and daily busyness cloud your vision of God. Take some time to slow down; let there be silence, let there be peace. Calm your mind and let your inner voice re-emerge from the silence. Allow yourself to see visions, allow yourself to dream dreams; and you may hear the voice of God reaching out to you.
"Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you."
The magic formula for putting more joy into your life can be summed up in one word - kindness. Just by performing random acts of kindness and helping people in need, you can bring joy to your own life, as well as the lives of others
[05/03/11] Breaking bread together can open paths for friendship and intimacy. By breaking the bread, a common meal becomes sacred. Trust can be built, and we can learn to care about each other and feel secure in revealing ourselves in all fullness. The Gospel calls the LGBT and straight community to come to the table — to eat, laugh, cry, love.
[04/11/11] What makes this world so special is the diversity of its people.
[04/08/11] Practicing compassion, caring for others and sharing their problems, lays the foundation for a meaningful life, not only at the level of the individual, family or community, but also for humanity as a whole
[03/21/11] All ethical teachings, whether religious or nonreligious, aim to nurture compassion, to develop it and to perfect it.
[03/20/11] To be spiritual means to express the God power within as a part of the journey of discovering your True Self.
[03/15/11] It is clear that inner peace is the principal cause of happiness. We can observe this in our daily lives. On days when we are calm and happy, even if difficulties arise or we fall victim to a mishap, we take it well, it doesn’t bother us unduly. But on days when we feel sad or have lost our usual calmness, the least little annoyance will take on enormous proportions and be deeply upsetting to us.
[03/12/11] "Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
"To dream of the person you wish to be is to waste the person you are."
[03/06/11] Michael Murray Happiness is the only thing that matters in life. If you are not happy then change yourself or change the situation. Don't do what makes everyone happy, do it for yourself. They will learn to be happy for you when they see how it makes you feel.
[03/01/11] If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought. ~Peace Pilgrim
