Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.  ~Chinese Proverb

If you are stuck, listen up…

Truly inspiring….An Invocation for beginnings

Live & Learn

Inspiring.  Catchy thump, thump, thump rhythmic cadence.  Hypnotic.  Worthy 3 minute clip.  A few of my favorite excerpts.

“This is an invocation for anyone who hasn’t begun to start, who is stuck between 0 and 1”

“Let me think about the people I care about the most.  Like when they fail or disappoint me, I still love them, I still give them chances, and I still see the best in them.  Let me extend the same generosity to myself.

“If I catch myself wearing a tutu – 2FAT, 2LATE, 2OLD, let me shake it off like…”

“Let me be not so vain to think that I am the sole author of my victories and a victim of my defeats…”

“Let me remember that the unintended meaning that people project on to what I do is neither my fault or something I can take credit for.”

Be still…….

Yes indeed..In silence, I will hear God and he will lead me the way.

Live & Learn


“…Learn to silence the chattering of your ego, whether through prayer, meditation, or a long walk in the park. Find that place where you can detach from the pressures of the world. Find that place where your body and spirit work together in harmony…You don’t need the right car, the right shoes, the right girl­friend to be complete.  All you really need is to be yourself.  Your spirit is the real you. Let it guide you…Be still. Listen to your spirit say, I am, and I am enough. In the silence, you’ll hear God…”

Love: Quotes by Mother Teresa

There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those.

It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.

Love cannot remain by itself… it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that act is service.

It is not how much you do, but how much love you put into the doing that matters.

Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.

Love is like a fruit in season at all times. Love can warm three winter months.

If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.

HAPPY VALENTINES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
