Self Improvement

There’s only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.   ~ Aldous Huxley  ~ “Solitude makes us tougher toward ourselves and tenderer toward others; in both ways it improves our character,” noted philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche. Spend some time…

Mistakes

Mistakes are a Teaching Tool

Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don’t look back at it too long.  Mistakes are life’s way of teaching you.  Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.  No one wins them all, and your failures, when they…

Your Anger

People of little understanding are most apt to be angry when their sense is called into question.  ~ Samuel Richardson   ~ Your anger is not just about you and all the frustrating things that happen to you. It’s not just about you and your cranky personality. And it’s…

Pain is Inevitable

Peace in my Soul

Sweet Spirit:  Sometimes I am tempted to force my life into a particular order or pattern.  And then I wonder why I feel worn out, at the same time pushing constantly to make the pieces of me fit a particular picture.  Today, I relax into Your…

The Law of Dharma

According to this law [the law of Dharma], you have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it.  There is something that you can do better than anyone else in the whole world – and for every unique talent and unique expression of that talent, there are also…

Life is Good

The universe is sending you the right everything.  You won’t realize this until you fully show up in the situation the way it is.  In other words, whatever the circumstance, if you assume that the circumstance is perfect, then you live fully within that circumstance.  How can I be…

Acceptance

The Holy Spirit accepts people unconditionally.  To the ego, this is an outrageous thought, because unconditional love is the death of the ego.  How will people grow if we all go around just accepting each other as we are all the time?  Accepting people as they are has the…
