All that has happened before this very second is past. We have absolutely no control over it. All the thinking and praying in the world will not change it.
What is important is that we know right now that yesterday has no power over us any longer. Let yesterday serve as a light on all the lessons we no longer have to go though again.

The Secret means that we are creators of our universe, and that every wish that we want to create will manifest in our lives. Therefore, our wishes, thoughts, and feelings are very important because they will manifest.

Worries carry responsibilities that belong to God, not to you. Worry does not enable us to escape evil; it makes us unfit to cope with it when it comes.

We ought to hear at least one little song every day, read a good poem, see a first-rate painting and if possible speak a few sensible words.

Celebrate ... life by all means but face up to the death of that life. Weep all the tears you have in you to weep because whatever may happen next, if anything does, this has happened. Something precious and irreplaceable has come to an end and something in you has come to an end with it. Funerals put a period after the sentence's last word. They close a door. They let you get on with your life.
