in order to have what you want.

only small things with great love.

It is not how much we do,
but how much love we put in the doing.
It is not how much we give,
but how much love we put in the giving.

    Marianne Williamson   

"Everything we do is either an act of love or a cry for help."

Spiritual progress is like detoxification.
Things have to come up in order to be released.
Once we have asked to be healed, then our unhealed places are forced to the surface.

our presence automatically liberates others

Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.
The real miracle is the love that inspires them.
In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.

The practice of forgiveness is our most important
contribution to the healing of the world.

Maturity includes the recognition that no one is going to see

Keep your face to the Sunshine and you will not see the Shadows.

The best and most beautiful things in the world
cannot be seen nor touched

Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened,
vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars,
or sailed to an uncharted land,
or opened a new doorway for the human spirit

One can never consent to creep
when one feels the impulse to soar.

    Eleanor Roosevelt   

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

When you know to laugh and when to look upon things as too absurd to take seriously,
the other person is ashamed to carry through even if he was serious about it.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience
in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else,
you will have succeeded.

You are never asked to do more than you are able
without being given the Strength and Ability to do it.

Gratitude helps you to grow and expand.
Gratitude brings joy and laughter into your lives
and into the lives of all those around you.

It is important from time to time
to slow down, to go away by yourself,
and simply Be.

Cease trying to work everything out with your minds.
It will get you nowhere. Live by intuition and inspiration
and let your whole life be Revelation.

Let there be more joy and laughter in your living.

Expect your every need to be met,
expect the answer to every problem,
expect abundance on every level,
expect to grow spiritually
