The joy of living is not found in things, it is found in you. The most important "things" in life are not things, but are felt by the heart.
2/28/11 Did you know that love and beauty grow within you? It is that way with our heart being like a garden. It can grow compassion or fear, resentment or love. It all depends on the seeds you plant there. You can never completely remove the angry weeds, but can pull then to the surface before they multiply. Spiritual laws are written on our hearts, and we cannot give lovingkindness away unless we possess it deep within us. For love is the beauty of the soul.
2/27/11 Do your best to appreciate the many wonderful aspects of your life. Life is too short to live uptight and angry. You are too blessed to be stressed and depressed. Dwell on God’s love and forgiveness. Be grateful for all you do have, and meditate on all of your beautiful blessings. Receive health, joy, and healing; stumbling into goodness by walking uprightly. You are forgiven and accepted today by faith. Take it all to God and know peace.
God reads the secrets of the heart; the most intimate details and feelings, even those we are not aware of.
2/26/11 It takes great love and courage to excavate buried dreams. Over the years, we have buried many a precious dream under layers of soot and rubble; layers of good intentions, detours, rejections, fate and missed opportunities. We need to be brave and move forward. Courage is the price that life extracts for peace. Today is a day to be kind inside, remembering the dream buried long ago. The ember is still glowing in your soul.
2/25/11 The shortcut to anything you want in your life is to be and feel happy now! Focus on radiating those feelings of joy and happiness into your life. Everything that you want is a result of your thinking. Joy is an inside job. Set your thoughts and frequency on the happiness signal. Be clear about what you want. What you put your attention on grows stronger in your life. Now let go, let God, and relax.
2/24/11 The exchange of energy can happen quickly, and may not always be positive. An angry person in line who moves past with curt arrogance can spread negativity in a moment’s notice and affect our mood. There is a surplus of this negative energy today, but we can counteract it by spreading joy, trust, hope, and enthusiasm. Let us come together in Light to bring peace, love, unity, and abundance!
2/23/11 We search everywhere outside ourselves to find ourselves. When striving is exhausted through disappointment and we no longer hope for something outside ourselves to make us whole, we begin to notice a startling quality of aliveness. It is being fully aware of the ordinary miracle of just being. When we relax in silence, tranquility shines with a transforming brilliance and we live with a twinkle in our eyes. We are part of the grand mystery or Great Reality of existence.
2/22/11 Feeling guilty is an enemy of the mind. Feeling guilty about feeling that we want “to get away from it all” compounds the problem. Guilt is a form of anger directed at oneself. A guilty conscience never feels secure; taking away reason and tossing it about in confusion. Guilt is a gift that keeps on giving, and a rope that wears thin over time. You deserve love. Seek it.
Happiness never depended on who you are or what you may have in life~it is all about what you think.
2/21/11 Our world is not happening to us. We are molding it, shaping it, and creating our existence through our thoughts. The big secret in life is that there is no secret to those who believe. Action is the product of right thinking, and inevitably will bring about right results. The magic key is in your hands, and you unlock the mystery the moment you control your own thoughts.
Power intoxicates the lives of many people. No person is wise enough or good enough to be trusted with unlimited power. Spirit must rule.
2/20/11 Your best is always good enough, because it comes from you, and YOU are always good enough! You will never be able to deliver someone else’s idea of the best and it is never your burden to carry. Don’t strive to fit into someone else’s vision of success. Do the best you can and feel satisfaction in your effort, regardless of how others perceive the outcome. Love:)
Remember, the music is not in the piano or any other instrument; it comes from within the musician who creates it.
2/19/11 Do you know what feeds your soul? What made your spirits rise yesterday~warmer breezes, birds singing, a touch, a smile, or a moment of quiet amidst the chaos. Sometimes it takes a moment of reflection to notice the beauty in our day. You need not go far to find peace. You can find that deep place of inner stillness right where you are now. A loving spirit has beauty, and joy is its birthright.

I believe everyday is a gift from our Creator. As we age, some may fear the unknown~death. People who become aware of their mortality find they have actually gained freedom to live. They have found they have an appreciation for the present. We are all here to contribute love, forgiveness, and service. As I age, I want to nourish my soul's purpose. If we are open to grace, people will appear in our lives to encourage growth of our souls. Allow me to provide daily nourishment through loving words, because joy is our birthright. I call these my daily "Truth Vitamins" for spiritual health. Join me in discovering together our inner soul purpose with "Love~that's all there is".
