*The Wisdom of Oprah*

As you become more clear about who you really are, you'll be better able to decide what is best for you - the first time around.





Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.





Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.





Books were my pass to personal freedom. I learned to read at age three, and soon…

Awareness



Mind can never be intelligent - only no-mind is intelligent. Only no-mind is original and radical. Only no-mind is revolutionary - revolution in action.



This mind gives you a sort of stupor. Burdened by the memories of the past, burdened by the projections of the future, you go on living - at the minimum. You don't live at the maximum. Your flame remains very dim.



Once you start dropping thoughts, the dust that you have…

*Good Vibrations*



The core lesson of the law of attraction is about feeling good. When I have good vibes, I generate a positive state of reality around me. The fundamental positive feelings are peace and joy. When I experience these feelings, all other things that my heart desires will be added to me. I need to remain focused here. Peace and joy is the answer, as is love and the absence of fear. I still stumble, make mistakes and lose my peace and joy.. The most… Continue

Faith, by David Whyte

My favorite poem on Faith of all time. Meant to be read slowly, it is surely one to savor.

Faith



I want to write about faith,

about the way the moon rises

over cold snow, night after night



faithful even as it fades from fullness,

slowly becoming that last curving and impossible

sliver of light before the final darkness.



But I have no faith myself

I refuse it the smallest… Continue

Today's Meditation - Faith (a poem for the inner child)



Hello God





Hello God, I called tonight,

To talk a little while.

I need a friend who'll listen

To my anxiety and trial.



You see, I can't quite make it

Through a day just on my own,

I need your love to guide me,

So I'll never feel alone.



I want to ask you please to keep,

My family safe and sound

Come and fill their lives with confidence,

For whatever fate they're… Continue

BE AT PEACE WITH YOUR OWN SOUL

BE AT PEACE WITH YOUR OWN SOUL



Be at peace with your own soul

then heaven & earth will be at peace with you.



Enter eagerly into the treasure

house that is within you,



And you will see the things that are in heaven,

for there is but one single entry to them both.



The ladder that leads to the Kingdom

is hidden within your soul...



Dive into yourself and in your soul

and you will discover the stairs

by which to… Continue

Remember Where You Came From



Remember Where You Came From, by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer



Before merging into form, we were a part of God, with all the inherent qualities of a Creator who sends forth abundance, creativity, love, peace, joy, and well-being. The spiritual dimension calls to us in this material world of beginnings and endings. When we listen and allow it to, Spirit guides us to something greater than our life as a physical being. When I let myself align…

Healing the Past by Stefanie Miller

This essay is so beautiful I wish I had written it myself. Namaste



Snapshots: Healing the Past

by Stefanie Miller



I spent the first month and a half of my summer vacation doing little other than resting and relaxing. I thought I would embark on a project to make myself feel like I accomplished something this summer. I have a big bin of photos that I've been meaning to sort and place in albums for years now. Every time I… Continue

Your Fascia And You



Your Fascia and You, by Dr. Christiane Northrup



Yesterday, Frank Lipman, M.D., was my guest on “Flourish,” my weekly show on Hay House Radio. Frank is an internist and acupuncturist who grew up in South Africa. I’ve known Frank for many years, and he and I share the same medical philosophy. Besides that, he’s also very, very funny and into World Music. (His CD mixes are among my favorites.) What I didn’t know about Frank until…

Leonid Meteor Shower Peaks Tuesday Morning

Strong Leonid Meteor Shower Peaks Early Tuesday Morning

One of the best annual meteor showers will peak in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday, and for some skywatchers the show could be quite impressive.



The best seats are in Asia, but North American observers should be treated to an above average performance of the Leonid meteor shower, weather permitting. The trick for all observers is to head outside in the wee hours of the… Continue

Emotions - Own Them!



This is from DailyOm. Please enjoy:



Owning Your Emotions, Name It and Claim It



Our feelings can sometimes present a very challenging aspect of our lives. We experience intense emotions without understanding precisely why and consequently find it difficult to identify the solutions that will soothe our distressed minds and hearts. Yet it is only when we are capable of naming our feelings that we can tame them by finding…

No "Caravan Of Despair"



Even if you have broken your vow a thousand times…





Sorrow and suffering and misery--everything has to be taken nonseriously, because the more seriously you take them, the more difficult it is to get out of them. The more nonserious you are... you can pass through the suffering, through the dark night, singing a song. And if one can pass through the dark night singing a song and dancing, then why unnecessarily torture…

Easy Days, Hard Days - Yin and Yang in Life

Some things come easy. Others come hard. This is the yin and yang in life.



When things are flowing with ease, it feels great. We say "wow, we are guided, connected and loved by the Universe." Or even, "We must be doing something right." But when we toil or struggle, we may in fact be in a period of strengthening or faith building. Then too, we may still come to know, "wow, I am growing in Faith, strength, surrender or… Continue

Bucket Of Water And Enlightenment



Chiyono and her bucket of water





It is not a certain sequence of causes that brings enlightenment. Your search, your intense longing, your readiness to do anything--altogether perhaps they create a certain aroma around you in which that great accident becomes possible.





The nun Chiyono studied for years, but was unable to find enlightenment. One night, she was carrying an old pail filled with water. As she was…

On Behalf of Wolves

I was deeply saddened to learn of the loss of another magestic mother wolf. Her story is inspirational.



Wolves are fantastic beings with rich emotional lives. Wolves mate and stay together for life. When a mate dies, the partner left behind can howl in grief for many weeks or months.



For those interested, here is a wonderful link where you can support the re-establishment of some recently lost legislation and protection for… Continue

Echoes of Happiness: Belly Laughs

Well, happiness and laughter sure seem to be one of the topics of the day. And what a wonderful topic indeed.



Here is an excerpt from today's Daily Om. It was quite synchronistic, for I am discovering again this week that yes, life happens. It goes up and down, and I may surely get my moments of anixety as my hubby looks for a job and "needs" one now, but at the same time it is True: nothing can separate us from the joy and Truth we carry… Continue

Angels, Angels!



Guardian Angels, by Dr. Christiane Northrup



Last night I had a discussion with my friend and colleague Dr. Doris Cohen (author of Repetition: Past Lives, Life, and Rebirth, Hay House 2008). She told me about a dream she had just had—about me. I was wearing a garland of flowers around my head. And I took six of the flowers off my head—one by one—and set them, ritually, in a bowl of scented oil. I placed the final flower between my…

Laughter Is The Best Medicine



Echoes of Happiness, Belly Laughs



As children, we laugh hundreds of times each day, delighted by the newness of living. When we reach adulthood, however, we tend to not allow ourselves to let go in a good belly laugh. Inviting laughter back into our lives is simply a matter of making the conscious decision to laugh. Though most of us are incited to laugh only when exposed to humor or the unexpected, each of us is capable of…
