Jewel of the Moment

Beloveds, There are so many demands on our time that often we are anticipating what comes next and not fully absorbing the moment we are in. Sometimes it is good to clear our minds and our hearts of all that is before us so that we can embrace simply that moment. Today, slow down and enjoy the beauty around you. Let each moment be special. Offer the gift of your full attention. Discover the jewel of each moment you are in!

When You Are Ready

Beloveds, In our selfishness, we make mistakes. We hurt others. Then we pretend to forgive ourselves and do good. Sometimes our ego helps us make more mistakes. We repeat the cycle. We live and we learn. At some point when we are ready, we begin to tire of our ego and selfishness. The door to compassion opens. Then we ask for and give true forgiveness. We begin to embrace Spirit and honor the Divine in All. This is the breath of love.

Every moment of every day our Creator is asking, "Are you ready yet?" The door to Compassion is Open. Now walk in-- honoring only the Breath of Love!

Twelve Steps To A Compassionate Life

Re-known author and philosopher Karen Armstrong in her new book "Twelve Steps To A Compassionate Life" states that
"The principle of compassion lies at the heart of all religions, ethical and spiritual traditions, calling us always to treat all others as we wish to be treated ourselves."

How then do/can we live a compassionate life?

Use Your Voice

Letting Go

We can hold on to our clutter or false pride and sit on the sidelines of life. Or, re-membering joy, we can let go and allow the gift of Divine Spirit to live within our hearts!

Affirmation"Today I let go of all the clutter in my mind. I open my heart to share and receive only love. Through Eternal Divine Spirit, love becomes the essence of my beautiful life!"

Personal Transformation

Beloveds, Never under estimate the power of love. Love that is pure, sincere and asks for nothing is an agent of personal transformation. Love is the greatest healer, motivator, negotiator, peacemaker and power of the Uni-Verse! Love is the living song our Creator sings. How do you live the song of love?

Honor all who came in love and ascended in love. Honor your Mother, the Earth and let your hearts become nurturing gardens of peace. Do this for the future of all children, and loving sentient beings. Let there be no more senseless killing or talk of petty wars. There is no need for destruction. Put down your weapons, tend the soil and build bridges of tolerance, understanding and compassion. Open your hearts and embrace humility. Honor your parents and your children. Love your neighbors. Sing with birds in the rain. Dance in the Sun with butterflies. Swim in the ocean with the dolphins. Sit under a wisdom tree and share your hope with your children. Live joyfully in peace!

These are the words from the Son/Sun,MotherFatherCreator! Live Them!

Me Without You

Beloveds, One day a majestic butterfly came upon a dying caterpillar in a cocoon. Re-membering her own metamorphosis she greeted him joyfully and said " Look at me! Don't be afraid. Now I know, there is no me without you!" But the caterpillar didn't understand. He cried because he thought only of all he was losing and didn't yet know the majesty of who he was about to become! Sometime we too must let go and allow Divine Majesty into our lives. "There is no me without you!" said the majestic butterfly as she continued on her journey of love!

Balance & Beauty

Beloveds, When we are feeling the weight of the world with all our frailties and imperfections; we have only to re-member Love. Love gives us the glimmering moon, stars and planets so that we may imagine the vastness of the Uni-Verse and experience light even in darkness. And then, so that we may honor our Mother Earth-Heart, and all her creations, we are given the kiss of the rising Sun to nurture us with hope and re-birth each new day. This is the balance and beauty of Love!

First, Show Up!

Beloveds, We often think we have a good reason to second guess our hearts but the beauty in life comes when we choose to show up, and be fully present in the moment. Today honor yourself, offer your best and enjoy the beautiful fruit that Our Creator has planned for you. The Uni-verse is singing--this is your life. Offer your best! You must show up and be present to receive your blessings!

Beyond Doubt


Our Creator's love for us
is beyond reason,
and beyond doubt.

Throughout the universe
there are galaxies of love,
planets of compassion
and stars of hope.

When we learn to simply plant
and nurture the seeds of love,
then we too begin to grow
and live beyond doubt.

Beyond doubt is the loving
Heart of Our Creator calling
on us to believe only in the
power of goodness;

asking us to care for our Earth
as we embrace the harvest
of miracles and peace that
comes only through love!

In Confusion


Rise up not with anger
but in loving patience.

With all the confusion,
-- the big fights
and the "me first" shoves,
we must be the peace.

Breathe deeply.

Step aside or back gently,
with humble dignity.

Go within and pray
for divine guidance.

In confusion, be the calm
heart of reason that listens
and acts with compassion.

Breathe deeply and focus
only on a loving,
peaceful outcome.

Free Will


Our Creator has given us free will
but too many of us have decided
to impose our will on others.

We compete with each other
and destroy all that is in our path.

Humility and goodness have
become signs of weakness.

Our world will only grow and thrive
through our willingness to compromise.

We must have some humility
and work to restore goodness.

Today, let's simply want and offer
to others the good we want for ourselves.
Honor the loving presence
of Our Creator in All!

Assigning Blame


When someone offers you
their trust
and seeks your counsel,
regarding a difficult situation,
try not to say
" I think it was your fault".

They may have been honestly
seeking understanding.

They may have come to you
looking for support so they
could be a better person.

Once we assign blame,
communications often break down
and it becomes harder to
create a win, win resolution.

Today, try to truly listen
with compassion.

Be a builder of bridges,
not a breaker of hearts

Being Strategic


Life often calls for us
to be strategic.

There are many paths
but all lead back to
the compassionate heart.

Today be strategic,
embrace your forgotten understanding.

Open up to divine wisdom and grace.

Take time to live this moment
with profound humility.

When you take a wrong turn,
stop, breathe; and
with your heart open-- Be Strategic.

Re-think your route.

Tuesday, April 5, 2011



In each of us is a seed
of divine beginnings.

When we have patience and
compassion for ourselves,
the seed grows and blossoms
into a heart of understanding.

With understanding we learn
to have patience,tolerance
and compassion for others.

Today,nurture you,
be patience with yourself,
and your heart will show you
how to graciously nurture
and be patience with others
in the world!

Live Your Vision

Rain or shine,
each day when we awaken,
it's a gift to be alive.

Each day has new possibility
when we decide to walk with
faith, hope and integrity.

Open your eyes, your hands,
and your heart.

Today with joy put some
pep in your step.

Say thank you for each miracle.
Even the miracles that haven't come yet!

Embracing Fortitude


There is no feebleness
or cowardice in love.

Love by definition
has virtue and valor.

Love gives us the courage
and stamina to move through
every difficult period by
remembering and honoring God's Grace.

Those who boldly love our sentient
Earth family become
the Earth's peacemakers.

For their good efforts,
they are rewarded by Divine Spirit
with eternal fortitude
and given a compassionate heart!

Living Through Chaos


There is no doubt about it.---

Chaos is rampant in our world.

But there is more beauty
in love than chaos.

We must hold on to the beauty
and embrace the hope and faith
in our hearts.

Throughout time we have created
cycles of chaos through our greed
and selfishness.

Change then, is probable.

As you choose your change,
please remember that hope and faith
are the eternal signposts
of the beauty we can experience
as beings of love!

When People Are Unkind


There are days when people
will be unkind
and say hurtful things.

Fear rules their hearts.

Love them anyway.

Be your best.

Just believe in yourself
and know that for your
good deeds and thoughts,
you are given joy and peace of mind.

You have the strength and courage
to live this day in Grace.

Listen carefully for your
every kindness will become
part of the melody in the
Universal song of love.

Today live joyfully
in kindness and sing
the Divine Song of Love!
