People who hate you are just confused admirers. They can’t figure out the reason why everyone loves you.

Sometimes hope seems as unreal as the angel beside you. But both are there.

“Perspective 🙂 think of it as ‘righting’ something makes it much more satisfying – keeps the cool in school :)”  (advice for writing papers and essays in school)

If I accomplish nothing else for the rest of the day I will lay my head at the end of the night and know that I have reached out to those who I love and touched their hearts in the ways that I could in hopes to bring a smile, share my love and lighten their loads even for a moment to help them catch their breath along their path. Love is Friendship, understanding and patience and heartfelt listening… It is one of the greatest gifts to us all.

When you are an entrepreneur people will say to you “Why are you working so hard”, relax, take time enjoy life, while you are trying to make a life and they are just living. An awesome mentor Mark Crawford I had many years ago said to me “Do today what others are not willing to do and tomorrow you will do and have what others wont be able to”. Working long and hard for a few years is better than working hard all your life.” (Thanks Rachelle)

Once you know the truth that you are powerful beyond measure, you will intuitively and immediately find your own way. ~ Steve Chandler

The force of ego is in your mind and it is at war with you. (this is the battle of light and dark or some may think of it as good vs evil)Ego is always connected to a feeling of fear. God is connected to a feeling of Love. Ego seduces you into breaking God’s law and then shames you for what you did. Ego knows when you are vulnerable. Ego wants you to live in lack.Ego tells you, you are stupid, ugly, no good, broken, worthless and unlovable. The goal of the ego is to destroy your relationship with God. Ego never wants you to communicate with God. It will laugh at you as you read these words.God has more power than any ego and he loves you unconditionally…ALWAYS! You are his child, his perfect work of art. God offers you a wonderful gift. The gift of life – a union with him in everlasting paradise. Ego and God cannot reside together. It is impossible!

There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet. Admiral William Halsey

Indecision is a form of self abuse.

“May the sun bring you new energy by day. May the moon softly restore you by night. May the rain wash away your worries. May the breeze blow new strength into your being. May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.”- Apache Blessing

Who flies after dignity, will be ignored of it, who refrains from dignity with discretion, will be pursued by dignity, and will be led to it by people.

Your angel is aware of the secret life that sleeps in your soul ~ Without even knowing it, your angel is always at work for you ~~ There is a secret world of association and inspiration which can never be explained ~ Artists could never create without the inspiration angels bring ~ It is the gift of the angel to watch over that threshold where your invisible world comes to visible form. Angels keep a circle around your life and they are particularly active in the region of friendship and relationship ~ There is a whole arena of secret preparation and gathering that we cannot penetrate with our conscious minds ~ Perhaps the attraction between two people is not accidental, could it be that their ancient angels know how much they have to bring to each other, and without this their lives cannot become true ? Angels are artists in the subtle chemistry of spirit ~ They awaken sacred melodies of inspiration and brightness and beauty in the soul ~ A friendship with one’s angel is a choice for each of us ~ In a certain sense your angel is the voice and presence of an ancient divine longing within you ~~ It urges you forth from all false belonging until you come into the divine rhythm where longing and belonging are one. Your angel can see your invisible world and knows where you have been imprisoned, where you have forsaken parts of your life. It is the custodian of your deep memory ~ Nourishment, courage, and strength are brought from the harvest of your memory to meet the hungry places in your present time ~
Your angel works in and through your imagination ~ In silence, we learn to see with the eyes of the soul .
( Eternal Echoes ~ John O’Donohue )

“If by bathing daily God could be realized
Sooner would I be a whale in the deep;
If by eating roots and fruits He could be known
Gladly would I choose the form of a goat;
If the counting of rosaries uncovered Him
… I would say my prayers on mammoth beads;
If bowing before stone images unveiled Him
A flinty mountain I would humbly worship;
If by drinking milk the Lord could be imbibed
Many calves and children would know Him;
If abandoning one’s wife would summon God
Would not thousands be eunuchs?
Mirabai knows that to find the Divine One
The only indispensable is Love.”
Miraba

Unsettled feelings spring from a search of peace, without knowing where it is or how to find it. But since peace is God, what you’re really craving is a connection with the Divine.

May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.

Accept everything about yourself – I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end – no apologies, no regrets. Henry A. Kissinger

Being defeated is often temporary, but giving up makes it permanent.

There are some people who put you down in life, mock your dreams, and challenge …your personality; they look like winners. But in actual fact, they are only voicing out their insecurities and jealousy. Do not let them pull you down. Believe and accept yourself and hold onto what you believe in.”
~Unknown

How many of us are afraid of those? I can’t tell you how many times I have been afraid of each of those items. They are the best things for us though.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. –Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Life is not a tragedy, it is a comedy. To be alive means to have a sense of humor.” ~ Osho

You are never alone, especially in your time of need. Angels are with you contin…uously, sending supporting and healing energy, and waiting for your requests for help. A mere thought, even a passing one, calls an Angel into action on your behalf!

Listen in stillness for the guidance of your Angels. Their messages always speak of love. They see you as you truly are: a completely lovable and magnificent being of light. Your Angels can see solutions to every seeming problem and are happy to guide you through the dark places in your life and back into the light.

Tears and sweat are both water and salt but create different results

I always make an impression. You can love me or hate me, but you will never forget me.

Life is a series of near misses. But a lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It’s seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future.

Never regret. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience.

If you can’t fly, run. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl. But by all means, keep moving.

Pain makes you stronger. Tears make you braver. Heartbreak makes you wiser. So thank the past for a better future.

Everything that irritates us about others cans lead us to an understanding of ourselves.

When people walk away from you…let them go…Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and It doesn’t mean they are bad people it just means that their part in your story is over.

Don’t try to understand everything, because sometimes it is not meant to be understood, but to be accepted.

Nobody is perfect, and nobody deserves to be perfect. Nobody has it easy, everybody has issues. You never know what people are going through. So pause before you start judging, critizing, or mocking others. Everybody is fighting their own unique war.

What the people wanted was a government which would provide a comfortable life for them, and with this as the foremost object ideas of freedom and self-reliance and service to the community were obscured to the point of disappearing. …Athens had reached the point of rejecting independence, and the freedom she now wanted was freedom from responsibility. There could be only one result. …If men insisted on being free from the burden of a life that was self-dependent and also responsible for the common good, they would cease to be free at all. Responsibility was the price every man must pay for freedom. – Edith Hamilton

Your challenges are Gods way of calling you home to yourself.

Have Faith, no matter hard things may seem;
And never, EVER give up Hope

Research confirms that when people feel appreciation, good things happen to their minds, heart, and bodies. But appreciation is much more than a feel-good mantra. It is an actual force, an energy that can be harnessed and used to transform our daily life—relationships, work, health and aging, finances, crises, and more. Noelle C. Nelson

A man who has committed a mistake and doesn’t correct it, is committing another mistake.

“ The Hidden Power of the Heart Each moment is a doorway to time travel. Being in this very moment and no other, time as we know it stops. You can Freeze-Frame and stop. Then you can make another choice. You can stay in the same holographic pattern or you can choose a different one”. -Sara Paddison.

Don’t make excuses for mean people. you can’t put flowers in an asshole and call it a vase.

If you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

A man’s true identity is not in what he shows… It’s in what he hides.

Everyone has to be something to somebody to be anybody; anybody that tries to everything to everybody is nothing to anybody.

Pay close attention to whatever triggers reactions from you. Your triggers reveal the spot where ancient pain is still buried.

Kindness makes you the most beautiful person in the world no matter what you look like.

You must let the pain visit. You must allow it to teach you. You must not allow it to overstay.

The best view comes after the hardest climb.

“Iron is full of impurities that weaken it; through the forging fire, it becomes steel and is transformed into a razor-sharp sword. Human beings develop in the same fashion.” Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido
