Nothing lasts forever, no one lives forever, the flower that fades and dies, winter passes and spring comes, embrace the cycle of life, that is the greatest love.
Go beyond fear: Beyond takes you into the place where love grows, when you refuse to follow the impulses of fear, anger and revenge.
Beyond means to feel yourself. Start everyday singining like the birds...singing takes you beyond, beyond, beyond.
(From Beyond - CD music-Tina Turner -chanting & spiritual message)
For attractive lips,
Speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes,
Seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure,
Share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair,
Let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
Walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things,
Have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed,
And redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
You will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
One for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
From 9th Chakra gifts for the soul...
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it; boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now."
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The "Pain Body"
"Most people carry a large amount of unnecessary baggage, both mental and emotional, throughout their lives. They limit themselves through grievances, regret, hostility, guilt. Their emotional thinking has become their Self, and so they hang on to the old emotion because it strengthens their identity. Because of the human tendency to perpetuate old emotion, almost everyone carries in his or her energy field an accumulation of old emotional pain, which I call "the pain-body." We can, however, stop adding to the pain-body that we already have. We can learn to break the habit of accumulating and perpetuating old emotion by flapping our wings, metaphorically speaking, and refrain from mentally dwelling on the past, regardless of whether something happened yesterday or thirty years ago. We can learn not to keep situations or events alive in our minds, but to return our attention continuously to the pristine, timeless present moment rather than be caught up in mental movie-making. Our very Presence then becomes our identity, rather than our thoughts and emotions. Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now; and if the past cannot prevent you from being present now, what power does it have?".

THE HEART OF THE SOUL
Intimacy is letting your guard down. You relax into the present moment without reservation. You become a friend to the world, and the world becomes a friend to you. You welcome every circumstance instead of resisting it. You face forward into the wind. The wind is the force of your life shaping itself to meet your most fundamental needs - the needs of your soul.
Every circumstance becomes a gift - the friend who assists you, the neighbor who deceives you, the stranger who smiles, kind people and brutal people, individuals who meet your expectations and individuals who do not. All provide you with opportunities to explore yourself, discover more about yourself, and change yourself.
- Gary Zukav

Doubt: There are certain things that drain the life force from the body. Doubt is one of them. When we doubt we lose our connection to our creative energy and to the divine.Doubt is not humble. It regularly interferes with trust and faith, and fertilizes insecurity. Guilt, fear, blame, resentment, anger and any negative emotion when held too long can affect your health and must be uprooted and released so that your body, mind and spirit can function at an optimum level.
Depression: Depression is unlived life. When you feel down, be gentle to yourself. Ask yourself if there is something that you are not doing and try to take action. Even if it is one small step you will notice how quickly the universe will come to your aid.
