I Believe God Wants You to Know

On this day of your life, dear friend, I believe God wants you to know…
…that as you start the first full work week of the New Year you should do no ‘work’ at all.

The point of your activities throughout the day is not to make a living, but tomake a life; not to ‘work’ but to create joy. If you are doing what you are doing merely to ‘pay the bills,’ you will have missed the major reason for All Of Life.

The purpose of life is to know and express Who You Are. If you do other than that during the days and times of your life, you will have not used those days and times in a way that profits your soul. It is soul profit we are after here, not body profit.

This first week of the New Year is a good time to contemplate that, yes?

Love, Your Friend
Neale Donald Walsch

Happiness only real when shared.

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods; / There is a rapture on the lonely shore; / There is society, where none intrudes, / By the deep sea, and music in its roar; / I love not man the less, but Nature more… / – Lord Byron

I read somewhere… how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong… but to feel strong.

I’m going to paraphrase Thoreau here… rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness… give me truth.

Some people feel like they don’t deserve love. They walk away quietly into empty spaces, trying to close the gaps of the past.

The core of mans’ spirit comes from new experiences.

You are wrong if you think that the joy of life comes principally from the joy of human relationships. God’s place is all around us, it is in everything and in anything we can experience. People just need to change the way they look at things.

When you forgive, you love. And when you love, God’s light shines through you.

I think careers are a 20th century invention and I don’t want one.

When you want something in life, you just gotta reach out and grab it.

The freedom and simple beauty is too good to pass up…

Two years he walks the earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, ’cause “the West is the best.” And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual pilgrimage. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the Great White North. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild. – Alexander Supertramp May 1992

It should not be denied that being footloose has always exhilarated us. It is associated in our minds with escape from history and oppression and law and irksome obligations. Absolute freedom. And the road has always led west.

What if I were smiling and running into your arms? Would you see then what I see now?


any good book you have read recently?

Today, I got this message in my Inbox:

On this day of your life, dear friend, I believe God wants you to know…

….that there is a book, waiting for you to read. It carries a wonderful message for you.

This may be a book that you started, then set aside. Or it may be a text that you have just heard about and that is now calling out to you.

Whichever it is, listen to the calling. Follow the impulse. Read the book. Its time is now.

I believe I finished all the books I had; there are some that I heard about and want to read, but I am open to new suggestions.

Please, feel free to write a comment with your recommendation of a book you liked.

prayer

‘May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.’

song of the week

Vanessa Hudgens- Whatever Will Be

Sometimes I feel like I’m a bird with broken wings
At times I dread my now and envy where I’ve been
But that’s when quiet wisdom takes control
At least I’ve got a story no one’s told

I finally learned to say
Whatever will be will be
I’ve learned to take
The good, the bad and breathe

‘Cause although we like
To know what life’s got planned
No one knows if shooting stars will land

These days it feels naive to put your faith in hope
To imitate a child, fall backwards on the snow
‘Cause that’s when fears will usually lead you blind
But now I try to under-analyse

Is the rope I walk wearing thin?
Is the life I love caving in?
Is the weight on your mind
A heavy black bird caged inside?

Say
Whatever will be will be
Take
The good, the bad
Just breathe

‘Cause although we like
To know what life’s got planned
No one knows if shooting stars will land

Whatever will be will be
I learned to take
The good, the bad and breathe
‘Cause although we like
To know what life’s got planned
Thing like that are never in your hands
No one knows if shooting stars will land
