The Secret

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.

One Little Thing

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

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.
(Frederick Buechner, Listening To Your Life, p. 302)

Do nothing our of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Books & Reading

Spiritual reading is, or at least can be, second only to prayer as a developer and supporter of the inner life.  Evelyn Underhill
God be thanked for books; they are the voices of the distant and the dead, and make us heirs of the spiritual life of past ages.  William Ellery Channing 
The constant habit of perusing devout books is so indispensable, that it has been termed oil for the lamp of prayer. Hannah More

His Presence

Through the kindness of a stranger.
The majesty of a sunset.
The mystery of romance.
Though the question of a child or the commitment of a spouse.
Through a word well spoken or a touch well timed, have you sensed His Presence?
