Every day you are handed 24 golden hours. They are one of the few things in this world that you get free of charge. If you had all the money in the world, you couldn't buy an extra hour. What will you do with this priceless treasure?
                         ~ Unknown


 You find three things along any spiritual path: (1) that you are spirit having a human experience, (2) that every breath from moment to moment is taken in a broken, imperfect world, and (3) that your wholeness and perfection will meet you somewhere on the path. 
                        ~ Sonja Ebron 


Contemplate life as infinite, undivided, ever present, ever active, until you realize yourself as one with it. It is not even very difficult, for you will be returning only to your own natural condition.

                        ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj


What happens is of little significance compared with the stories we tell ourselves about what happens. Events matter little, only stories of events affect us.
                        ~ Rabih Alamedd


That's the reason we kind of exist. It's like our job. To give to each other. And learn from each other. To capture moments of people. So it's really strange to have somebody ignore the obvious human being right in front of them.
                        ~ Angelina Jolie


Love yourself. Accept yourself. Forgive yourself and be good to yourself because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.
                        ~ Leonardo Buscaglia 


There are only two people who can tell you the truth about yourself - an enemy who has lost his temper and a friend who loves you dearly.
                        ~ Antisthenes


Because one believes in oneself, one doesn't try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn't need others' approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.
                        ~ Lao Tzu


People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies; Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
                        ~ Mother Teresa


Notes from the Universe

For every physical adventure, there's the possibility of loss. That's what makes it an adventure.

For every spiritual adventure, there's only gain. Which totally spoils the adventure, and is why you choose to forget that all physical adventures are really spiritual adventures.

Everything makes you more,
    The Universe 


The top 10 things dead people want to tell living people are:

1. They're not dead.
2. They're sorry for any pain they caused.
3. There's no such thing as a devil or hell.
4. They were ready to go when they went.
5. You're not ready.
6. They finally understand what they were missing.
7. Nothing can prepare you for the beauty of the moment you arrive.
8. Don't try to understand this now, but life is exceedingly fair.
9. Your pets are as crazy, brilliant and loving, here, as they were there.
10. Life really is all about love, but not just loving those who love you...

In their own words,
    The Universe


We are really advocates of just getting as happy as you can be—which takes care of everything. Even if you don't have reason to be happy—make it up. Fantasize it. Make a decision that you're going to be happy one way or another—no matter what. "No matter what, I'm going to be happy! If I have to ignore everybody; if I have to never watch television again; if I have to never pick up a newspaper again, I'm going to be happy. If I never have to see that person's face again, I'm going to be happy. If I have to see that person's face, I'm going to find something to see in that person's face that makes me happy. I'm going to be happy. I'm going to be happy. I'm going to be happy."
                        ~ 'The Teachings of Abraham' by Esther and Jerry Hicks


Develop more and more ideas, so you get to the point that you have more than you can possibly use.  Then give some away.  Yes, give them away.  After all, you have taken care of yourself, so you aren't losing anything.  On the other hand you are helping others, and what goes around comes around.  Those ideas you gave away, will come back to you in another form, just when you need them.  You will build contacts and good will with your associates and become known as a person to turn to when help is needed.  This in itself will propel you to the top.
                        ~ Edward W. Smith


Cure for Fearing the Unknown

“Stop fearing the unknown and move forward.”

Do these sound familiar? “I’m too old to do something new.” “I won’t be any good at it.” “People will laugh.”  Are these the kinds of things you tell yourself when opportunity strikes?

When you determine the result or the outcome before you even start, you have already considered rejection or failure. And, when this happens, it’s easy to come up with excuses for not even trying.

The secret is to disconnect the outcome from the process. This is when you release the fear and give yourself the opportunity for success.

Think about it, you cannot possibly know the outcome before you try. Nobody can! So, trust yourself and get out there and do it.

Today’s Affirmation: I give myself opportunity for success by disconnecting the outcome from the process.


Daily Teaching from The Power

What You Give to Others, You give to Yourself

The most enlightened beings throughout history told us to love others, You were not told to love others just so that you would be a nice person. You were being give the secret to life! You were being given the law of attraction! When you love others, you will have an amazing life. When you love others, you will receive the life you deserve.

         "The entire law is summed up in a single command, Love your neighbor as yourself."
                                ~ Saint Paul (Circa 5-67) Christian Apostle, In Galatians 5:14 

Give love to others through kindness, encouragement, support, gratitude, or any good feeling, and it comes back to you and multiplies itself, bringing love to every other area of your life, including your health, money, happiness, and career.

Give negativity to others, through criticism, anger, impatience, or any bad feeling, and you will receive that negativity back - guaranteed! And as the negativity comes back, it multiplies itself, attracting more negativity, which affects the rest of your life.
