Loving another person is not separate from loving God.
One is a single wave,
the other is the ocean.
Contemplate love every day.
Loving reflections make the heart grow.
Surrender to love as a guiding force.
Love never forces.
Love is intelligent and brings only what you need.
The awakening of true love lies in finding
peace within passion and passion within peace.
To feel beauty is to know that truth.
To know the truth is to be in love.
Your marriage is a play of the divine.
Two souls pretend to be separatefor the sheer joy of coming together in love.
The highest expression of love is creativity.
Love doesn't need reason.
It speaks from the irrational wisdom of the heart.
A heart that has learned to trust can be at rest in the world.
Love is attention without judgement.
In its natural state,
attention only appreciates.
Love is the beginning of the journey,
its end and the journey itself.
Love is like water.
If it doesn't flow, it stagnates.
The mind judges what is good or bad.
Love brings only good.
True love is here and now.
Whatever you can remember or anticipate is
only a shadow of love.
A-void negative sources, people, places,
things and habits.
B-elieve in yourself.
C-onsider things from every angle.
D-on't give up and don't give in.
E-njoy life today, yesterday is gone and
tomorrow may never come.
F-amily and friends are hidden treasures,
seek them and enjoy their riches.
G-ive more than you planned to.
H-ang on to your dreams.
I-gnore those who try to discourage you.
J-ust do it !
K-eep trying no matter how hard it seems, it will get easier.
L-ove yourself first and most.
M-ake it happen.
N-ever lie, cheat or steal, always strike a
O-pen your eyes and see things as they really
P-ractice makes perfect.
Q-uitters never win and winners never quit.
R-ead, study and learn about everything
important in your life.
T-ake control of your own destiny.
U-nderstand yourself in order to better
W-ant it more than anything.
X-ccelerate your efforts.
Y-ou are unique of all of God's creations,
nothing can replace you.
Z-ero in on your target and go for it.
Forgiveness is letting go of the pain
and accepting what has happened,
because it will not change.
Forgiveness is dismissing the blame.
Choices were made that caused the hurt;
we each could have chosen differently,
but we didn't.
Forgiveness is looking at the pain,
learning the lessons it has produced,
and understanding what we have learned.
Forgiveness allows us to move on
towards a better understanding of universal love,
and our true purpose.
Forgiveness is knowing that love
is the answer to all questions,
and that we all are in some way connected.
Forgiveness is starting over with the knowledge
that we have gained.
I forgive you, and I forgive myself.
I hope you can do the same.
-Poem by Judith Mammay
Allow me to live my life as I choose
according to the way I think
following my mind
accepting others as I see them
do not judge me by my standards
for we have traveled different roads
which have brought us to this point of
We know different truths
we do not feel the same
yet I can love you
respect the total which is you
especially because you are fully unique
as am I
remember...though...love and respect
are sustained only if you do not try
to change me
nor I you
the excitement of life lies in expectations
of the differences we may share tomorrow
I'll be me
the world is open
to touch everyone we meet
Persons are gifts.....which the Father sends to me wrapped.
Some are wrapped very beautifully;
they are very attractive when I first see them.
Some come in very ordinary wrapping paper.
Others have been mishandled in the mail.
Once in a while there is a Special Delivery.
Some persons are a gift which comes very loosely wrapped;
others very tightly.
But the wrapping is not the gift!
It is so easy to make this mistake!
Sometimes the gift is easy to open up.
Sometimes I need others to help.
Is it because they are afraid?
Does it hurt?
Maybe they have been opened up before and thrown away.
I am a person.
Therefore I am a gift too!
A gift to myself first of all.
The Father gave myself to me.
Have I ever really looked inside the wrapping?
Am I afraid too?
Perhaps I have never accepted the gift that I am....
Could it be that there is something else inside the wrappings than what I think there is?
Maybe I've never seen the wonderful gift that I am.
Could the Father's gift be anything but beautiful?
I love the gifts which those who love me give me:
why not this gift from the Father?
Am I a gift to other persons?
Lord: Grant that I may be a "giver" and a
"receiver" of your most precious of gifts:
Persons---Myself and Others.
Listen to the song in you.
It's there in whatever puts stars
in your eyes and makes your heart sing.
Listen to your feelings and you will hear
who you are and what you must do.
Listen to your needs and you will know
where to find what you are looking for.
Listen to the wisdom within.
It is trying to lead you to your destiny.
Listen to the song in you and your life
will be full of harmony.
You will be who you were meant to be.
You will be complete and at peace
and happier than you have ever been-
if only you will
Listen to the song in you.
Open up to the miracle of now.
Value your uniqueness.
Explore your dreams and passions.
Yield to life - go with the flow.
Obey the voice of your Spirit.
Unwind - get cozy and comfy.
Renew yourself - body and soul.
Surround yourself with caring people.
Express yourself - be true to you.
Linger longer at what you enjoy.
Feel God's special love for you.
