Little changes [and] little choices add up to be revolutionary changes in your life.
                        ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach


Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness.
                        ~ Thich Nhat Hanh


We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.
                        ~ E.E. Cummings


Time is constantly moving on, second by second. Nothing can stop it, but what we can do is use our time properly; that is in our hands. Whether we believe in a spiritual tradition or not, we need to use our time meaningfully. If over days, weeks, months and years, we have used our time in a meaningful way - when our last day comes, we will be happy, we will have no regrets.
                        ~ The Dalai Lama


Everyone has oceans to fly, if they have the heart to do it. Is it reckless? Maybe. But what do dreams know of boundaries?
                        ~ Amelia Earheart


The Pursuit of Conscious Wholeness

Our bodies are living, breathing expressions of our consciousness and should be treated as such.

Striking the right balance between our physical and spiritual aspects is one of the most challenging aspects of existence. We are dual beings by nature, spiritual entities bound to earth by physical bodies. In our lifetimes, we are charged with the duty of nurturing and tending both with equal devotion and love. Yet while both aspects of the self are deserving of honor and respect, there is a tendency for people who are more spiritually focused to ignore, avoid, or dismiss their bodies. Similarly, many individuals are entirely ensconced in the carnal realm and pay no attention to the needs of the soul. In both cases, an adjustment is in order. We are whole only to the degree that we embrace both sides of our beings.

If the soul is the inward manifestation of our consciousness, the body is the living, breathing expression of that consciousness. The physical self provides the home in which the spiritual self takes root and flourishes. Just as we must tend to the seed of the soul to ensure that it grows strong, so, too, must we care for the protective shell that is the body to make certain it is capable of playing its role in our development. Though there will no doubt be times in our lives when we feel more comfortable focusing on the spiritual self or the physical self, denying the fundamental importance of one or the other can lead to ill health, emotional distress, and a sense of incompleteness. Both facets of the human experience play a vital role in our well-being.

The body and the soul are the yin and yang of our current reality. They are, at this point of human evolution, irreparably bound together, and many spiritual teachers agree that the body is one of the greatest vehicles through which to access the soul. In fact, many believe that our spirit has chosen to be embodied as an essential part of our spiritual development. Consequently, it is the responsibility of each person on the planet to forge a marriage between the two, so that these disparate aspects bring out the best in each other, creating a vibrant, dynamic, and workable whole.

Notes from the Universe

Funny, huh, how some folks think that avoiding challenges will bring them peace?

As if the peace they now know didn't come from earlier challenges that were faced, and mastered.

OK - not really that funny,
    The Universe


There are only two types of dreams.

Those that have come true. And those that are coming true.

    The Universe 


You need not set out to create a masterpiece.

You are one.

    The Universe


Do you have any idea of how fast angels fly? How brilliant they are? How silently they work? How deeply they love? How creative they can be? How cleverly they blend in?

Oh, hey, nice orchestra. Do they follow you everywhere?

    The Universe


For every setback, disappointment and heartbreak, ask yourself, "What does this create the opportunity for?"

And therein you will find its gift.

Everything has a reason,
    The Universe


I think you already feel it, but a really HUGE wave of LOVE is coming your way.

Once-in-a-lifetime HUGE.

Hang ten,
    The Universe


The Teachings of Abraham by Esther and Jerry Hicks

You cannot look at that which you do not want and not join and perpetuate that vibration. Take your attention from that which is not in harmony with who you are, and your "now vibration" will adjust to who you really are — and then you can uplift others.


How do you ever get the truth to be more the way you want it to be? You've just got to start beating the drums of truth the way you want it to be - and when you do, you will immediately feel good. And there are those who might say, "Oh, you're not facing the fact." And we say, we would never face any fact that was taking us to a place we don't want to be.


There are those who believe that the world is getting more and more desperate. We are here to tell you that the world is getting better and better, and better, and that every experience you have causes you to launch rockets of desires, and Source comes in response to those rockets. And the best thing about your birth and death is that the resistant ones die and the allowing ones are born. And with this combination of contrast that keeps you launching new and new desires, it's no wonder that the Universe is expanding in this marvelous way and that life is getting better, in every day - and in this moment - for everyone who insists on focusing there.


A belief is nothing more than a chronic pattern of thought, and you have the ability—if you try even a little bit—to begin a new pattern, to tell a new story, to achieve a different vibration, to change your point of attraction. The Law of Attraction is responding to your vibration, and you can easily change your vibrational point of attraction by visualizing the lifestyle you desire and holding your attention upon those images until you begin to feel relief, which will indicate that a true vibrational shift has occurred.


Everything is vibrational. "I'm letting it in or I'm not. And I'm using lots of things as my excuse to let it in, or as my excuse not to let it in." But it's all vibrational. Otherwise, we should be able to take 100 people, give them all identical exposure to experience, and get identical results. And you can't do that. You'd get 100 different results, and you'd get several big differences in results.


My Imagination Attracts All Cooperative Relationships... You have the power to evoke from others the relationships that you desire. But you cannot get to a new-and-improved situation by giving your attention to the current situation. The Universe, and all physical and Non-Physical players in it, is responding to the Vibrations that you are offering; and there is no distinction made between the Vibrations that you offer as you observe, and the Vibrations that you offer as you imagine. . . . If you will simply imagine your life as you want it to be, all cooperative components will be summoned. And even more important, all components that are summoned will cooperate. It is Law. The experience that you have with others is about what you evoke from them.


One Minute Motivator by Edward W. Smith

Worried that you don't have all that it takes?  No one does.  The key is to use all that you do have, and to find the niche where what you do have fits.  Max out the good points you have and keep looking for the fit for what you have.  What is needed out there keeps changing, so if you didn't "fit" yesterday, you might fit today and you will surely fit tomorrow.


If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  This applies to you as well.  Many of us who aren't happy with the way things are, go out and try to change everything about ourselves. The fact is that there are many things about yourself that are perfect the way they are, and changing them will only makes things worse for you.  Figure out what is working for you and leave it alone, don't change that part of you that is perfect the way it is.


Action is the best remedy for discouragement.  When you are discouraged, you don't know where to go, whom to call, etc., take action on your dreams by doing something, almost anything; just get started on something.  Get other people involved in your dream, so they can give you advice on what to do, where to go etc.  Don't let discouragement stop you from taking some sort of action, as that is the key to moving yourself out of the depression and moving you back towards your goals.


Goals are nice, but don't forget to live your life.  When we have goals, we sometimes stop thinking about the present, and the present is where we live.  Find something to be happy for, now.  Don't wait till "if" or "when" something happens, until you will be happy.  Whatever you are waiting for is probably a ways off.  Enjoy where you are now; enjoy the process you are going through, enjoy the moment.  If you wait till conditions are just right to be happy, you are limiting your enjoyment of life.  What you are waiting for may never come, but now is here in this moment. So what are you waiting for in order to be happy?  There is always something that we are waiting for and then life will begin.  Stop waiting until you get that promotion, raise, perfect mate, etc., so you can be happy.  It is nice to attain the big goals, but usually the glow of achievement is short lived and we need to move on to the next goal. There will always be problems in your life and there will always be things that you want.  If you wait for your problems to go away, or for you to have the perfect life, you will never be happy.  You must choose to be happy, independently of events that life throws you, or if you haven't achieved your goal yet.  Learn to be happy you are in the process of getting these things, or learn to be happy with what you have now, but you must find a way to be happy with what you have, where you are for the moment.  Get on with your life and start smiling.


Daily Teaching from The Power

Points of Power 

  • What you continually give to your body with your beliefs or strong feelings, you receive in your body. Every feeling you have saturates every cell and organ in your entire body.
  • You are the ruler of a kingdom, and your cells are your most loyal subjects who serve you without question, so whatever you think and feel becomes the law of your kingdom - the law within your body.
  • When you give negative thoughts and feelings of what you don't want, the force of health to your cells reduces! When you feel love for anything - for a sunny day, new house, friend, or promotion - your body receives the full force of health.
  • Gratitude is the great multiplier, so say thank you for your health every single day.
  • Say thank you with all your heart for what you do like about your body, and ignore the things you don't like.
  • To see your health improve, give love to health more than fifty percent of the time. Just 51 percent is the tipping point from sickness to health.
  • If you are facing illness, do your best not to own it with your thoughts and words. Instead, give love to health, own health, and make it yours.
  • Give love for the perfect weight, perfect body, perfect health of an organ, and imagine having it, and be utterly grateful for everything you do have!
  • If you believe that your body will deteriorate with age, you are giving out that belief, and the law of attraction must return those circumstances to you.
  • Feel young and stop feeling your age.
  • Your body will change into whatever you want, through your feelings of love and gratitude.
