Secrets that Burden Us

Being vulnerable doesn't have to be threatening. Just have the courage to be sincere, open and honest. This opens the door to deeper communication all around. It creates self-empowerment and the kind of connections with others we all want in life. Speaking from the heart frees us from the secrets that burden us. These secrets are what make us sick or fearful. Speaking truth helps you get clarity on your real heart directives.

Make the World Worthy

Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again and what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are?

We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move.

You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?

You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.

- Pablo Casals

Rules For Being Human

What You Put Out

What you put out comes back. The more you sincerely appreciate life from the heart, the more the magnetic energy of appreciation attracts fulfilling life experiences to you, both personally and professionally. Learning how to appreciate more consistently offers many benefits and applications. Appreciation is an easy heart frequency to activate and it can help shift your perspectives quickly. Learning how to appreciate both pleasant and even seemingly unpleasant experiences is a key to increased fulfillment.

- Doc Childre and Sara Paddision

Kindness in Thinking

Kindness in words creates confidence, kindness in thinking creates profoundness, kindness in feeling creates love.

- Lao Tzu

You Meant a Lot to You?

When people are asked to remember a person who meant a lot to them in life — a teacher, a friend, a parent, a grandparent — they usually remember a person who really cared and understood them. Think back in your own life. Was there someone who stands out in your memory because they really cared about you?

Compassion Makes A Difference

Follow your dreams of a better world, and keep on trying, even when there seems to be little hope, because it is the right thing to do. We may never know how the seeds of kindness that we plant may help others on their journey, today, or even sometime far in the future. But every act of compassion makes a difference!

Miki Imai - Piece of My Wish

You Can Always Do Something

Any change, any loss, does not make us victims. Others can shake you, surprise you, disappoint you, but they can't prevent you from acting, from taking the situation you're presented with and moving on. No matter where you are in life, no matter what your situation, you can always do something. You always have a choice and the choice can be power.

These Are My Wishes For You

May you find serenity and tranquility
in a world you may not always understand.

May the pain you have known
and the conflict you have experienced
give you the strength to walk through life
facing each new situation with courage and optimism.

Always know that there are those
whose love and understanding will always be there,
even when you feel most alone.

May a kind word,
a reassuring touch,
and a warm smile
be yours every day of your life,
and may you give these gifts
as well as receive them.

May the teachings of those you admire
become part of you,
so that you may call upon them.

Remember, those whose lives you have touched
and who have touched yours
are always a part of you,
even if the encounters were less than you would have wished.
It is the content of the encounter
that is more important than its form.

May you not become too concerned with material matters,
but instead place immeasurable value
on the goodness in your heart.
Find time in each day to see beauty and love
in the world around you.

Realize that what you feel you lack in one regard
you may be more than compensated for in another.
What you feel you lack in the present
may become one of your strengths in the future.
May you see your future as one filled with promise and possibility.
Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.

May you find enough inner strength
to determine your own worth by yourself,
and not be dependent
on another's judgment of your accomplishments.

May you always feel loved.

Whatever our hands touch -
We leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture
On doorknobs, dishes, books.
There's no escape.
As we touch we leave our identity.

Wherever I go today
Help me leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion
Of understanding and love.

Heartprints of kindness
And genuine concern.
May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
Or a runaway daughter
Or an anxious mother
Or perhaps an aged grandfather.

Send me out today
To leave heartprints.
And if someone should say,
"I felt your touch,"
May they also sense the love
that is deep within my heart.

To Know Life

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent persons
and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

How to Take a Compliment

Sometimes we don't want to accept compliments because we don't believe the person giving the compliment is sincere. But their sincerity is not your problem. Take the compliment at face value, say, Thank you, and move on.

Learning to accept compliments graciously may seem awkward at first but gradually it will become second nature. By accepting compliments you will feel better about yourself and you will not be putting down the person who complimented you.

Adagio in G Minor (Albinoni)

What I Can Do

Know me for what I do and for not what I am.
Judge me for what I can do and not for what I have done.


Life Gives Back

Whatever you give to life, it gives you back.
Do not hate anybody.
The hatred which comes out from you will someday comeback to you.
Love others. And Love will comeback to you.

Pham Quynh Anh & Marc Lavoine - J'espère

Know Who You Truly Are

The entire process of achieving inner calm is one of searching inside yourself and discovering who you really are. When you strip away all the material aspects of your being and search your higher self, your inner truth, you begin to be filled with a sense of peace.

You realize that maybe you don't need as many material "things" you always thought you did. You become a more spiritual being as you deal with the realities of day-to-day living...


Pursuit of Material Possessions

I like to have "things" just as much as you do. But, I learned long ago not to place my sense of "self-worth" in how much stuff I have.

If you obsess about getting the next house, car, clothes or whatever in order to feel worth something, feeling inner peace and happiness will always elude you.

Learn to place more emphasis on your inner feelings and the present moment.

"The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom."
- James Allen

Peace of mind really does come in large part from your ability to shift your thoughts from one of outward focus to inward focus. How you view your world is more important than actual reality.

We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.

What Is "The Good Life" Parable

More than money.


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is
our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most...We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

In The Morning Light

15 Things to Think About Everyday

Our minds are constantly working, so much so that we have countless thoughts each hour and day. For all the things we think about, there are a lot that we neglect but are so important, vital to living the life we want.

Below is a list of 15 things to think about each and everyday. Thinking about these will only take 10 to 20 minutes. Some you’ll want think about in the morning and others you’ll want to think about at night.

1. The things you’re grateful to have
Think of the things you’re grateful for. Food, shelter, family, friends, a car, all the big and small things many aren’t fortunate to have.

2. The things you’re grateful NOT to have
Each of us can come up with something we’re grateful not to have. Perhaps you’re grateful not to have a disease, enormous debts, or perhaps you’re happy you don’t have a lot of money.

3. What you want to do today
Quick thoughts about the daily goals you want to accomplish and the plans you’ll need to take to get them done.

4. What the future holds
Think about what tomorrow, the next month, or even the next five years will bring you.

5. Think about one of your fears
We all have fears, some are big and some are small. Focus your thoughts on one.

6. Think of a way to face that fear
Think of one way in which you can face your fear. Even if it’s something small it’ll bring you one step closer to fear’s face.

7. One new thing you’d like to do
Think of something new you’d like to try. Do this every day you possibly can, you’ll never have too many goals and dreams.

8. The things you didn’t accomplish yesterday
Think about the things you wanted to get done yesterday, but didn’t. Then plan on getting them done today.

9. Your greatest qualities
Every day think about the things that make you a great person. It’ll give you confidence and ambition to tackle anything.

10. What you don’t like about yourself
We each have something we don’t like about ourselves. Perhaps you are too fearful, too quiet, or too arrogant.

11. How you can change what you don’t like about yourself
Think of some ways you can change. Sometimes it doesn’t take as long as you might think.

12. How you can make someone else’s day a little brighter
Maybe send a friend a card to show you’re thinking of them. Maybe buy a coworker just because. Or even just complementing someone can make their day a little brighter.

13. Your life goals
You won’t be able to think of all of your goals in life because you’ll always be adding more to your list. However, think about your current biggest dreams and goals. You can’t forget what you’re aiming for.

14. How yesterday’s problems are today’s motivation
Don’t let the problems of your past prevent you from moving forward. Think of how you can use the problems to motivate yourself to change and resolve.

15. You only have one life
Think about this: you only have one shot at life. So make the most out of every second you have. Reminding yourself of this will help you seize each day.

Free To Forgive

I Want to Make a Difference

Do you feel the urge to 'give something back' - but you're not sure what or how?

Sometimes the answer is obvious. It’s right in front of us. It’s looking after a sick relative. It’s dropping a few coins in the collecting box. But often we have to think more deeply. What sort of difference do we want to make? What is the unique contribution that only we can make - because of who we are and what we care about? These are hard questions. Sometimes our whole life slips by before we can answer them. This site helps you to answer these questions.

Find a simple way to make a difference to someone in the next twenty-four hours. Devote between five minutes and half-an-hour to it. Your budget: anywhere from nothing to an hour's wages. It could be as obvious as carrying someone's groceries. It could be buying a book for a friend. It could be phoning someone who's unhappy or troubled. Choose something simple but worthwhile, and go do it. Then see how it makes you feel: our bet is that you'll feel more fulfilled immediately.

3 Keys to Reach Beyond your Personal Limitations

Have you ever felt like your life has gotten stuck in a rut? You believe there is more to your life but you’re so busy living the routine of your daily life that you feel like you can’t break past your own perceived limitations. Well it’s time reach your greatness in life. Here are 3 keys to reach beyond your own limitations to reach your full potential.

1. Stop being complacent.
Carl Gustav Jung once said, ‘The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.’ You see, the moment you let yourself believe that the life you are living is as good as it gets you stop the flow of greatness in your life. If you are still alive, it means that you have something greater to do in your life. Don’t get complacent in your life.

2. Take a risk.
If you think you have a limitation in a certain area of your life the only way to break past it is to take a risk. Nothing is ever iron clad in life but if you are to reach your greatness you have to take risks to break past any limitations that you believe you have.

3. Believe in yourself.
If you don’t believe in yourself then you will never take a risk and you’ll live in complacency. Dare to believe in yourself enough to reach your full potential. You may be afraid but that’s normal. You may have insecurities but don’t let them stop you from reaching your purpose in life.

Your life is full of greatness. Use these 3 keys to help you break past any limitations that you feel you have so that you can discover the greatest you that you can be.

Learn relaxation techniques in order to be present in each moment.
Take notice of your surroundings - sights, sounds, smells, ambiance.
Listen attentively to the conversation of others, music, even silence.
Savor your food and drink. Taste each morsel.

Benefits of living in the moment

You become more connected with your thoughts and feelings
Are more connected to others
Feel more gratitude and enjoyment of life
If you live in the moment, it won’t pass you by
Feel more focused, peaceful and alive
Feel less anxious and fearful
Like all skills, training yourself to enjoy and live in the moment takes time and practice. Begin now and see life from a fresh, new perspective.

Celine Dion - A New Day Has Come

A Brand New Day

Each day is a new beginning,
a time to start anew,
while all the stars are sleeping,
and the rose is fresh and new...

Everyday is a new creation,
too lovely to ignore.
Every sunrise is a blessing,
a gift for us today....

The sun climbs higher in the sky,
it's light shimmering and warm.
All things now are clearly seen,
a new day has been born.

The forces of light,
illuminates my life
with a promise of a brand new wisdom...

This is the beginning of a new day,
you have been given this day to use it as you will.
You can waste it or use it for good...
what you do today is important,
because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.

When tomorrow comes,
this day will be gone forever...
in it's place is something that you have left behind....
let it be something good!
