Our spiritual power is enhanced with each blessing we give. And as our spiritual power is enhanced, life’s trials are fewer. Our struggle to accept situations, conditions, and other people, or our struggle to control them, lessens every day that we recognize and revere one another’s individualistic existence.
I long for contentment and serenity in my life and I deserve those times. I earned them, but without life’s pain I would fail to recognize its value. “We tend to think of the rational as a higher order, but it is the emotional that marks our lives. One often learns more from ten daysContinue reading “Pushed by OUR PAIN”

If I am faced with a change of any kind today, I will know I am not alone. Whatever I am facing is right for Me and necessary to my well-being. Life is growth and the next stage awaits…. so if the door closes, don’t keep pulling on it and allow the window to open!

Nobody is without a contribution to make, everyone of us is giving what we agree called upon to give when we are in the right relationship with God, who is the master artist in the designContinue reading “Prayer & Meditation”
You can expect the unexpected in your day to day life. Pleasure and pain both share in Our lives. We often forget that Our growth comes from challenges also referred to as problems.
Pain is inevitable in life. As we grow and recover, we see how much of our suffering is directly related to Our stubbornness and illusion of control. Contrary to belief suffering is not Noble, it is often plain stupid. My pain teaches me about life.
When I ignore and suppress my feelings, they come out in frightening, sometimes destructive ways. I need to learn to honor them… whatever they are.
