Are You Enjoying The Journey?

You never get it done, and you cannot get it wrong. Life is supposed to be fun: you are creator, you are a focusing mechanism, and you are here in an environment that is very conducive to that. When you get hold of an idea, play it out for the pleasure in it. If you are doing it for any other reason, then you are not connecting to your Source...

What are You Saying "Yes" TO?

“Say ‘yes’ to what you are really in love with.” ~ Mary Morrissey
 
 
Whatever you are giving your attention to, you are saying ‘yes’ to, even if you are shouting “NO” at the top of your voice. If something doesn’t please you and it’s out of your control, turn your...

Are You Doing and Doing The Best?

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

Do You Appreciate The Contrast?

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”

Do You Know What You REALLY Want?

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.  For while knowledge defines all we already know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create.”  Albert Einstein

Is Your Life On Course?

 “Things do not change; we change.” Confucius
