summer vacation is coming.... hope you all enjoy!!!

Sometimes it may seem like you can't figure it out by yourself.
Sometimes will and strength and courage are not enough.
Sometimes in your life you will need to call out for help.
Call on God. God will be there.

Give some of that weight where it belongs,
- to God, and have faith that what happens is for the best,
whether you understand it or not.

God doesn't create faulty life. No.
Everything created by God is perfect, and so are you.
So stop driving yourself mad with endless ways to improve,
and just accept the glory of your being as is.

Love has great potential to enrich your life.
But if you are just playing a role, pretending to love,
it's only going to poison you.
Because you are teaching yourself that it's just a game,
and slowly but surely you will lose the capacity to open in love.

Let your love radiate out to all you meet.
Let your love touch the hearts of people you don't even know.
Let your love reach to the far corners of the earth.
Love is what is saving the world.

You can mouth the words of a prayer all day long
and just waste your time,
unless you also speak with your heart.
And to speak with your heart means to embody first.
If you pray for love, be loving.
...If you pray for wealth, be generous.
If you pray for health, practice health yourself.
What is your favorite prayer? How can you begin to embody it?

Don't seek, don't search, don't ask, don't knock, don't demand
- relax. If you relax, it is there. If you relax, God shows you the way.

If all was going your way all the time,
you would become a spoiled child, wouldn't everyone?
Difficult people are just one of the ways
God teaches us to expand beyond our egos
and accept other perspectives on life.

In life you can absolutely count on one thing,
- everything can turn around in one day,
in one minute sometimes.
Don't you dare to give up,
- you might be a moment away from a windfall.

To free yourself from a problem
you have to acknowledge it and face it
with your eyes and heart open.

Just like a seed has an image of the tree in it,
so does your heart have an image of who you are becoming.
Look for stories in movies and books that resonate in your heart,
and you will find glimpses of your possible futures.
What is your favorite story?

Touch the Earth with your feet,
lift your face to the sun, breathe the air,
listen to the birds and the wind through the trees.
Glory in the creation that surrounds you.

It's not about how much you have,
how much you know,
or how much you do.
It's about how well you love.
Love is what matters most.

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.

As your body needs nourishment - food, drink, sleep,
so does your soul need nourishment - sing, dance, love.
Life is not all work, work is not all hard toil.
Nourish your soul with the food that is right for it,
for it is the altar of your own inner temple.

Think back over the last day,
- what could you have taken with delight
that you just skipped over?

With each new day we are given new hope,
new possibilities, new opportunities.
Each new day is a miracle.

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.

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.

Anything else.
You'll only get the same results
if you do what you have always done.

Prayer is when you talk to God.
Meditation is when you become quiet and listen to God.
You've learned how to talk and ask well.
Time to learn how to listen and hear,
because God has been answering you.

You've been worrying too much about the future lately.
So tonight, go ahead, put your faith in God,
and just have a peaceful evening and a restful sleep.

You've carried the guilt, the shame for long enough.
You've kept your wounds open for long enough.
The time has come to let go, to heal.
Keep the lessons and let the pain heal.
Yes, you know what we are talking about.


  1. Meditation is when you become quiet and listen to God.
    You've learned how to talk and ask well.
    Time to learn how to listen and hear,
    because God has been answering you.

    Beautiful thoughts rendered in beautiful poetical way.
