On Christmas morning, I woke up hearing in my head this inspiring message from Spirit.


"If God is not available from within,

then God cannot be perceived from without."


Channeled Message from Divine Spirit - 9:15 am - 12/25/16

I woke up from a powerful dream of ascending to Heaven with these words coming to me which I wrote down.

It is a message for all of us.


IMPORTANT CHANNELED MESSAGE FOR YOU FROM DIVINE SPIRIT


"Come oh little one

on this glorious night

as I wrap my arms around thee

and you shall see

the most glorious sights untold

and there will I take you unto my arms.


And this is true for all of mankind.

Whether you be a bricklayer or a magistrate,

s/he will come into my arms and

be joined by a thousand angels.


Comfort I seek to give to thee.

Rest for the trodden and worn.

For you shall come unto

The Land of 1,000 Suns.


No race, creed, or color shall hold you back

for this is a land for those long forgotten.

Here their glory shines.


Take my hand little one

and come into my arms.

I will give you comfort and safety

and you shall know the true magnificence

and the peace

I long to share with you.


Focus on Me throughout the day

and I will lead you

and you will come to know Me as I know you on the Inner Plane

where heart and soul meet as one

where nothing disturbs you

and no thing can bring you down.


It is there we shall come to live as one

You again abiding in Me

and Me in you.


Take heart and know the wonders I have told you are true.


There shall be more time for us to spend together

as you seek to find Me.

Know this is true for I have said so.


Remember you are a child of God.

Where you go, I go also.

There is no thing and no one you are not.


Spend time in the quiet chamber of your heart

and I will come unto you.


Go in peace my child and

share the blessings of this day.


For this I have awakened thee.


Remain pure of heart, steadfast in my love, and

look for My guidance

and you shall know Me

all the days of your life

for I AM with you always."

"I took a moment to be still and asked my Soul,

'What do you wish me to know?'

Out of the silence, I heard my Spirit say to me,

'You are loved beyond measure.
You are more powerful than you know.
You are an extension of Source.

Go and tell the others.'"

If Only We Could See

"If only we had eyes to see when souls are passing from this life,
we'd see that no one ever dies alone...

the angels come to meet us as they lead us on to heaven,
to the greatest kind of love we've ever known.

If only we had eyes to see that all of heaven celebrates
when someone comes into that holy place...

we'd feel the joy the Angels feel as each new soul is
welcomed to eternity within the Lord's embrace.

May it comfort you to know that your loved one
is with God resting in perfect peace."

Mary Miro


"When we have done all the work we were sent to Earth to do,
we are allowed to shed our body,
which imprisons our soul like a cocoon encloses the future butterfly.

And when the time is right,
we can let go of it and
we will be free of pain,

free of fears and worries -
free as a very beautiful butterfly,
returning home to God..."

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, M.D.

"You are here to make a difference,
to make the world a better place,
to share your knowledge, experience, gifts, and talents,
to shine your Light,
to show your Love,
to uplift and encourage others.

It's time.
Do it now.

You have much to offer.
The world needs YOU.
Others need YOU!

Set the example.
Be who you were meant to be!
Don't wait.

YOU are good enough, know enough, and have enough now.

Love,
Your Spirit"

but an opportunity for us to open ourselves to growth and change...

"What you worry about may not come true.

Be here now.

Breathe.

There is a Divine Plan.

You are a part of that Plan.

Be still and connect with the God-force within
to find guidance, strength, comfort, peace, and healing.

Detach and observe things from a higher spiritual perspective.

All is well.

Trust.

Know that you and your loved ones (those here and in Spirit)
are loved, guided, and supported always.

Your Spirit or Soul, also known as your Higher Self,
chose to be here at this time.

You wanted to experience Life fully in order to
love, learn, grow, heal, share, teach, and serve.

You have a purpose in being here.

Love, respect, appreciate, and forgive yourself
and one another (those here and in Spirit).

Make the most of each day.

Create a bucket list and have fun marking things off.

Enjoy the journey!"

"I was a daydreamer in school...
not realizing that where I was on the Other Side
was where you go to get the songs.

For the longest time, I didn't trust myself
to hear what I was hearing...
I watched (other songwriters) trust themselves
to say whatever was on their minds.

It was just magical to me
and from there, I trusted myself a little bit more
to open up each time
to where I would let more in,
but it was frightening in the beginning.

It was frightening to trust...

People will say, 'What do you think about when you write?'

Nothing.
Don't think...
I can't plan it.
I don't know when it's gonna be...

It comes through you.

Just don't think.
There's no formula.

You just have to be available
and receive."

Lionel Richie

'Now you have an Angel who you know by name.'"

Oprah Winfrey


"I'm not doing anything remarkable or unique.
I'm doing something that other people haven't yet learned to do.

I love being blind.

I love that every single day is a new adventure.

I think it's looking at the world in an entirely new way.

If I had the opportunity, honestly,
I wouldn't go back to being sighted."

Tomm de Witte

"My Inner Peace Recipe

Practice saying to yourself, "ALL'S WELL. I TRUST."

Breathe in very slowly while saying silently, "ALL'S
Breathe out very slowly while saying silently, "WELL."

Breathe in again very slowly while saying silently, "I"
Breathe out again very slowly while saying silently, "TRUST."

Repeat often, add water, mix, and stir gently with love.

Relax at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.

Enjoy!

Namaste."

"My daughter,


I look at you and I do not see the passage of time.

I see my little girl playing dress up, running through the yard, playing on a swing.


I will try and respect the fact that you are older now

and that the decisions you will make are your own,


but you must understand that to me,

you will always be my little girl.


I may not be able to carry you in my arms anymore,

but I will always carry you in my heart."

"It comes down to unconditional love and acceptance of the people that are around you,

that you choose to be around,

the people that you choose to love.


It's a choice

and when you let go

and let people be who they are

and you yourself learn how to love them

for who they are

it's a very freeing experience."

Lenny Kravitz


"Sometimes people feel that there's a cut-off time

like a certain age you have to stop having a wish,

you have to stop dreaming a dream,

or you have to act a certain way.

It's like you have to grow up.

But, you don't!"

Cher


"The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice."

Peggy O'Mara


"You will accept as much happiness, love, and peace as you think you deserve.

Any more and you must choose either to,

1) sabotage and push away your joy, or,

2) change your mind about yourself.


The belief that happiness has to be deserved has led to centuries of pain, guilt, and deception.

Happiness is free - there are no conditions."

Robert Holden


"You DESERVE to be happy NOW.

You are a Divine Being. That is reason enough.

You are worthy inherently. You do not have to earn the right to be happy.

You only have to CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY!"

Unless you are happy with yourself,
you will not be happy with who you are with.

"When you get to the end of all the light you know

it's the part of you that is seeking meaning and purpose...

Another way to understand Spirit is that it's the part of you that is drawn to hope...

that has to believe in something more.

It's the light of you...

It feels like hope.

It feels like grace."

"Thinking of others with love definitely increases our capacity to understand them...

Empathy can be an astounding experience in the spiritual realm.

Often one senses another's needs and emotions to a remarkable extent...

The more selfless our love, it seems, the keener become our faculties with which to

comprehend the inner needs of our fellow men (and women)

and thus better to serve them and our Master (God/Source/the All That Is)."

Wilda Lowell Conger

Anam Cara

"May you recognize in your life the presence, power, and light of your soul.

May you realize that you are never alone,
that your soul in its brightness and belonging connects you intimately
with the rhythm of the universe.

May you have respect for you own individuality and difference.
May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique,
that you have a special destiny here,

that behind the facade of your life
there is something beautiful, good, and eternal happening.

May you learn to see yourself with the same delight, pride, and expectation
with which God sees you in every moment."

John O'Donohue

Give

"Give of yourself to others the best you can
in whatever way you can
with no thought of yourself and
you will have lived a life well lived.

Do not wait to give until you are good enough, know enough or have enough.
No, rather, give freely, generously, and lovingly to those in need
without expectation of recognition or return.

Yes, you can make a difference in this world

in ways greater than you will ever see and
in more ways than you will ever know.

Recognize yourself in the face of another.
There are many who would rejoice at your offering
no matter how small.

Let giving be your way of life
for as you give to one another,
so shall you receive."

Spirit Channeling from "A Brother"

Poem For My Friend

"I can never know the full extent of the pain you are feeling.
I can't begin to know the depth of sadness you must feel.

But, in your time of darkness,
In this moment of uncertainty,
My thoughts are with you.

My arms are open wide,
And my love reaches towards you.

On that you can depend.
I love you, my friend."

© 2010 Gayle Kirk

Trust & Accept

"Enjoy and make the most of each and every day.
Focus on the positive and try to see the good in everything.

Our attitudes affect so much of how we experience life - no matter what life brings us.
Let go of any expectations or shoulds or needing to understand and make sense of things.

Sometimes we just have to accept not knowing why and
Trust that all things happen for a higher spiritual purpose.

Maybe someday, when we're over on the Other Side, we'll understand."

© 2010 Gayle Kirk

Whispers From Heaven

"When I left this world without you, I know it made you blue.
Your tears fell so freely. I watched. I know this is true.

While you were weeping, days after I passed away -
While all was silent within me, I saw you kneel to pray.

From this wonderful place called heaven, where all my pain is gone,
I send a gentle breeze to whisper, "My loved ones, please go on."

The peace that I have found here goes far beyond compare
No rain, no clouds, no suffering - just LOVE from everywhere.

You need not be troubled just stay close to God in prayer.
Someday we'll be reunited. My love, His love, surrounds you always,

EVERYWHERE!"

© 2005 Al Littleton and Brenda Smith

Our Deepest Fear

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."

Marianne Williamson

Choose Love

"It's impossible to hold love and fear simultaneously.

The two conditions are direct opposites and cannot occupy the same space.


Take love, for instance. Love is patient, kind, and trusting.

Fear, on the other hand, is what love is not.


Choose love and you will never be in fear

for as I have said, the two cannot exist together."

You Are Loved

"You do not need me to remind you that

you are important, special, and needed.


You are important,

special,

and needed.


You do not need my recognition, reassurance or approval

to feel worthy and to know you are good enough.


You are worthy.

You are good enough.


You do not need me to tell you, 'I love you,'

in order to know that you are lovable and loved.


You are lovable.

You are loved.


You do not need my comfort and reassurance

so that you may have inner peace.


Inner peace is always available to you.

It is within you,

just by choosing it.


All those things that you think you need from another,

are available

and within you

now.


All that you seek

and everything you need

is available

and within you

now.


Seek it - within.

Find it - within.

Share it - with others.


Cultivate, from within yourself,

the love, inner peace, and self-worth

that you seek from another.


Do not give away your personal power,

your self-esteem, and

your self-respect to another

in the hopes that they will reflect it back to you,

so that you may feel lovable and loved.


Do you know how important, loved, and powerful you are?

Do you know that you were born out of the Creator's love and in the Creator's image?


Unfortunately, others often cannot begin to recognize, appreciate, and return

the magnitude of your self-worth,

for others are often not even able to recognize, appreciate, honor, and love themselves.

Many have forgotten that they came from Love and, therefore, are Love.


They feel separated from the truth of who they are.

Remember, rejoice, and remind others of their magnificence.

Love yourself with all your heart.


Be gentle and speak kindly to the one who bears your name.


And, when you have healed,

let your light shine brightly.


Let your love flow freely,

so as to help uplift others to the truth of their being -

to know that they too are lovable and loved.


And then, when the love you sought from others

shines brightly from your own soul,

the love you express completely will be reflected back to you in abundance and

you will begin to heal the world.


That's how important, needed, and powerful you are!


Trust and know this to be true.


You are so special.


You are greatly loved,


and you are powerful enough to move mountains.


You are!

Believe it.

No, really,

Believe it!

And so it will then be.


All our love,

Infinite Spirit."

Seeing & Sensing Energy Blocks in People & Animals


Question for Divine Spirit from A Client:

What can I do to open myself up to see energy blocks
when I am giving Reiki and scanning a person or animal?
Sometimes I can sense them, but I would like to be able to see an energy block.


Reply from Divine Spirit Channeled through Gayle:

"You do not always need to see to understand.
When you watch your television, do you know how it works?...
The clients get what they need.
You connect your frequency to that of Spirit.
You ask to be a channel of healing and the energy flows to where it is needed.


When you place your hands physically on a person or an animal,
you will feel intuitively guided or they will say,
'This part' or 'Move up a bit' or 'Over there I seem to have the problem.'


You allow your hands and their conversation and their wiggling to all come together.
As your hands seem to return to normal from an excited, warm, cool or vibrating state,
then you can search for a new area on the body to place the hands for wholeness.


You may also find at times that you do not feel anything
and yet the person or animal that you are working on says,

'Oh, thank you so much. I feel much better for all you have done,'
and you think, 'I did not do anything', and yet you did.


So, is a matter of trust and going with the flow.
You do not need to seek out the spots or interpret them or understand them
to work them out or heal them or remove them.

Just be a channel of love."

Gayle Kirk's 1st Attempt at Light Trance Channel Writing on the Computer

11/3/05

Question for Divine Spirit from Gayle:

Who was I voice channeling last night?
Can I trust you? Are you of the Christ light?


Reply from Divine Spirit:

"Don't be afraid, my dear.
This is new for all of us.
We are all still learning what is the best fit.
Do not be discouraged. Have faith, hope, and courage.


Trust as you do with the psychic and mediumship information that you get.
This too is a process of faith and trust.
Without it, you have nothing.
We mean you and your friends no harm.


Do not keep second-guessing this.
It is what it is and it is good and enough.
You are blocking it with your fear.
Relax, let go, and trust.
The process will be a whole lot easier if you do.


We mean you no harm, my dear.
This you can be sure of.
This you can trust.
Can you forgive? Be flexible.
Mistakes will happen, but we do try our very best and utmost at all times.
This you can be sure of.
You are safe and all is well.


In your book, keep trying.
Write down what you see, feel, and hear.
It is important. It will make more sense later.
For now just record your impressions.
Angels have heard your call and have sent us to be with you.
Fear not. Go in peace."

To Those I Love And Those Who Love Me


"When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.

You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears.
Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love. You can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.

I thank you for the love you've shown,
But now it's time I traveled alone.

So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.

It's only for awhile that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away for life goes on.

So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be there

And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All my love around you soft and clear.

And then when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and welcome you home."

Love be thy name.

Give us this day our daily faith

And forgive us as we forgive ourselves and others.

Teach us to be strong against temptation

And to choose only love

For love is the power...the glory and the way!

Thy will be done."

Unknown


"I know for sure that we don't need to be afraid of death

because we'll be greeted by something better on the other side.

And I know for sure that life is a gift to be treasured

and that we must always live it to the fullest."

Mattie Stepanek


"I have one request...and that is to be remembered.

I am eternally grateful and hopefully, when I reach heaven, I will be there

to great each one of you with the love and the light that you've given me."

Erin Kramp


"Slow down and enjoy life.

It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast -

you also miss the sense of where you are going and why."

Eddie Cantor


"I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a finger print

and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love

and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard,

and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you...

What God intended for you goes far beyond anything you can imagine."

Oprah Winfrey

COME


"Come.
Sit awhile.
Lean your head on my shoulder.
Allow me to support you.

Rest.
Drink from my cup.
Nourish your soul.

Relax your mind.
Restore your body.
Fill your heart.

Know that you are loved completely,
always, and
forever.

My love is everlasting.
My strength is unwavering.
My peace is all pervading.

Seek me in your darkest hour.
Pray to me when thou needest me the most,
For I am with you
always.

I am your strength,
your courage,
your respite.

I am the Knower,
the Seer,
the Way.

We are one,
you and I.

Come."

"Joy is really the fuel of the heart that opens us up to experience everything

in a way that it allows us to leave little pieces of

light and love wherever we tread."

Oprah Winfrey


"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma--which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

Steve Jobs
His Commencement Remarks to Stanford Graduates in 2005


"There's a difference between thinking you deserve something and

knowing you are worthy of it."

Oprah Winfrey


"When you live with an open heart,

unexpected, joyful things happen."

Oprah Winfrey


"It's not like there's only one thing we can all do.

All of us have multiple abilities, and talents, and things that we can do and

we either utilize those God given gifts or we waste them.

It doesn't matter how old you are.

It doesn't matter where your life goes.

You're gonna get that opportunity.

That door is gonna open, so walk through it.

See what's on the other side.

You never know what's gonna be there and where it can take you."

Jill Angel


"What every child wants to know is,

do your eyes light up when I enter the room?

Did you hear me and did what I say mean anything to you?

That's all they're looking for.

That's what everybody is looking for."

Toni Morrison


"Success is liking yourself,

liking what you do,

and liking how you do it."

Maya Angelou


"You can have a good time with anybody...

Here's the thing. 'Who do you want to go through problems with?'

That's the issue because the chances that you're gonna go through it are extremely high.

Everybody's gonna go through something.

'Who do you want to be in the trenches with?' is the question."

Niecy Nash


"When you learn, teach.

When you get, give."

Maya Angelou


"When someone shows themselves to you,

believe them the first time."

Maya Angelou


"Your life is reflecting back to you exactly who you are, all of the time...

Sometimes you don't like the reflection.

You don't like what you see and the first place to look is inside yourself,

instead of looking out."

Oprah Winfrey


"All life is about growing to be who you were most meant to be -

the best version of yourself...

You have the power...

You are not defined by your circumstances."

Oprah Winfrey


"If you hold on to anger,

then it leaves a film on everything you do in life and a filter.

You can't be your true self...

I can't change what he (or she) did...

I can change how I react to it."

Aaron Bangay


"We teach people how to treat us."

Phillip C. McGraw


"Forgiveness is letting go of the hope

that the past could have been any different."

Oprah Winfrey


"When you know better,

you do better."

Maya Angelou


"You can be right or you can be happy...

Other people do not have to change for us to experience peace of mind."

Gerald Jampolsky


"You deserve the best that life has to offer you.

You deserve the best version of yourself.

Why?

Because you're here.

Because you were born, you deserve the best life possible...



What I got was we often block our own blessings

because we don't feel inherently good enough

or smart enough

or pretty enough

or worthy enough...

You're worthy because you are born

and because you are here.

Your being here, your being alive, makes worthiness your birthright.

You alone are enough...



Nobody but you is responsible for your life.

It doesn't matter what your mama did;

it doesn't matter what your daddy didn't do.

You are responsible for your life.

You are responsible for the energy that you create for yourself,

and you're responsible for the energy that you bring to others...



This is what I want everybody to really get.

Your life is a reflection of the way you think...

What you believe

is what you become...

It's never too late...

You start exactly where you are...

Only you have the power

to make the changes you want in your life.



Often times, when you don't have the belief in yourself,

somebody else believing in you,

somebody else saying you can do,

it is achievable,

is enough...



I would tell you that every single person you will ever meet shares that common desire.

They want to know:

'Do you see me?

Do you hear me?

Does what I say mean anything to you?'...

Try it with your children, your husband, your wife, your boss, your friends.

Validate them.

'I see you. I hear you. And what you say matters to me'...



We are all called.

Everybody has a calling and your real job in life is to figure out what that is

and get about the business of doing it.

It lights you up

and it lets you know that you are exactly where you're supposed to be,

doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing...



I have felt the presence of God my whole life.

Even when I didn't have a name for it,

I could feel the voice bigger than myself speaking to me,

and all of us have that same voice.

Be still and know it.

You can acknowledge it or not.

You can worship it or not.

You can praise it,

you can ignore it

or you can know it.

Know it.

It's always there speaking to you

and waiting for you to hear it in every move, in every decision.

I wait and I listen.

I'm still -

I wait and listen for the guidance that's greater than my meager mind...

The only time I've ever made mistakes is when I didn't listen.



So what I know is, God is love and God is life,

and your life is always speaking to you.

First in whispers...

It's subtle, those whispers.

And if you don't pay attention to the whispers,

it gets louder and louder...

Whispers are always messages,

and if you don't hear the message,

the message turns into a problem.

And if you don't handle the problem,

the problem turns into a crisis.

And if you don't handle the crisis,

disaster.



Your life is speaking to you.

What is it saying...

Start embracing the life that is calling you

and use your life to serve the world."

Oprah Winfrey


"I think there are more distractions and distortions than maybe ever

and I think the challenge is -

how do we balance,

how do we hold at bay all the voices that are forever crowding in

and hear the voice of our own soul,

our own unique soul...

I think that there is more need than ever

for all people of all ages

to have reflective time in which they listen to their own heart

and find who they are

and where they're connected."

Mark Nepo


"When people can't give you what you need

then you need to be able to, for yourself,

move on

and stop living in the space where you want somebody to say,

you want somebody to do,

you want them to be

something that they can not be for you...

people can only give you what they have."

Oprah Winfrey


"I do believe that's the key to joy

and it's in all the traditions -

being easily pleased.

I mean, I spent the first half of my life, not unlike most people,

trying to either find things that were special

or to find how I was special,

how to work at that

if I found and called it a gift

and how to turn things into things that would be special

and I think in the second half of my life,

it is as we talked about there,

how to find what's special in everything

because everything is special

if we slow down enough

to allow,

everything glows."

Mark Nepo


"It doesn't matter how you meant what you said.

It only matters how it landed,

so you have to listen to how you are coming across."

Henry Winkler a.k.a "The Fonz"


"Close to his death,

per his sister, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs'

last words were,

"Oh, wow! Oh, wow! Oh, wow!"

Can imagine what he was seeing on the Other Side that caused him to be so amazed?!!"


"In life we do things.

Some we wish we had never done.

Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads,

but they all make us who we are

and in the end, they shape every detail about us.

If we were to reverse any of them,

we wouldn't be the person we are.

So just live.

Make mistakes.

Have wonderful memories,

but never second guess who you are,

where you have been,

and most importantly, where you are going."

Jamie Gominger (my niece!!)


"Don't let my death

be the death of you."

MacfarLane


"...it's the thrill of the idea, the possibility,

that moment when the fantastic becomes possible - just barely possible.

That's where the fun is."

James Cameron - Director, Avatar & Titanic


"Doors don't just open for you.

Every once in awhile, one will open a crack

and you have to recognize that that's the moment.

They'll only open a crack for a split second

and you have to push it the rest of the way open

and you have to know that is the moment to step through."

James Cameron - Director, Avatar & Titanic


"God has no religion."

Mahatma Gandhi


"It's one of the things now that I've learned is:

forgiveness is the answer to everything.

It's the answer to every problem anyone has...

Some people say, "Just let it go."

You go, "I can't do that," but if someone says,

"What if you forgave them?"

Just do it!

Try this. Try and forgive them.

Say, "I forgive you," and then say,

"I forgive myself for what I did to you too (or didn't do),

but I forgive you for what you did to me and

I just want to love you."

Steven Tyler - Lead Singer of Aerosmith


"Grow old along with me!

The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made.

Our times are in his hand who saith, "A whole I planned, youth shows but half;

Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!"

From Rabbi Ben Ezra By Robert Browning

(Beautiful! Thanks for sending this to me, honey. I love you too!)


"I'm good enough.

I'm smart enough and

doggonnit, people like me!"

Stuart Smalley from Saturday Night Live, Played by Al Franken


"My mother told me that if you have a choice between being respected and being loved,

always take being respected because if someone respects you,

love may come,

but if they love you without respect,

it (love) will go."

Chris Christie


"You live your life and you go through ups and down.

You learn and hopefully, you grow.

The growth part of it is the most exciting part for me because

when I reached the age of 50 or older, I wondered what else I was going to do with my life.

I didn't think I was going to be doing acting all my life.

I just thought life has to have more than that,

but we need to make it happen.


How am I gonna give back the things I've learned,

the worlds I've travelled,

the knowledge I've acquired,

the understanding that I have about the depth of well-being and

understanding how we can actually feel that and

so what matters to me is giving back.


So, just because you get older,

doesn't mean things stop.

It's when you stop.

It's when your wonder stops.

It's when your innovation stops.

It's when your creativity stops and you allow yourself to go asunder.


The beauty of getting older is

the surprise of what else you can do to make the world a better place

with the wisdom you've accrued over those years."

Goldie Hawn


(My Dad said to me) "When you start feeling a little too big for your britches,

I want you to feel how small we are

and how much a part of everything we are.

I think it's really important that you remember it

so you always have your feet on the ground and

there's always a sense of reality around you."


(Goldie speaking now) "Little did I know that these principles

of staying with your feet on the ground

without having extreme expectations of what you believe or

what you want to happen for you

is important to be grounded and

to stay focused on the present and

not inflate yourself

to feel that you are truly any different than anybody else because

you're not.


We all have gifts.

We all have the ability to put forth the best of ourselves in our day."

Goldie Hawn


"I had held the false belief that I was doing this work alone.

How often in our lives do we forget what God can do through us
if we allow ourselves to receive?

...I have learned when I am afraid, my trust in God is little to nonexistent.

Once I truly let go,
I realized the very work I feared doing
was what I was here to do."

Temple Hayes


"There was a time when I was in a hurry as you are. I was like you.

There was a day when I just had to tell my point of view. I was like you.

Now I don't mean to make you frown, no.

I just want you to slow down.


Have you never been mellow?

Have you never tried to find a comfort from inside you?

Have you never been happy just to hear your song?

Have you never let someone else be strong?


Running around as you do, with your head up in the clouds, I was like you.

Never had time to lay back, kick your shoes off, close your eyes. I was like you.

Now you're not hard to understand. You need someone to take your hand.


Have you never been mellow?

Have you never tried to find a comfort from inside you?

Have you never been happy just to hear your song?

Have you never let someone else be strong?"

Olivia Newton-John


"If you believe that there is a Heaven,

your life here on Earth is different.

You may believe that you're going to see your loved ones again

so the grief that you had after they're gone isn't as strong.

You may believe that you'll have to answer for your actions

so the way you behave here on Earth is changed."

Mitch Albom


"Death is the ultimate freedom.

You are free of any pains and limitations of the physical body and

you are free from any struggles and challenges pertaining to your Earthly life.

You are free!"

"I define success as peace.

Who looks back at you in the mirror?

Do you like that person? Are you at peace with that person?

Are you content?

That is the foundation of success.

You can be the most famous person in the world

and not have peace...

We cannot allow external forces to tell us we are successful."

DeVon Franklin


"What would You have me do?

Where would You have me go?

What would You have me say, and to whom?"

Marianne Williamson


"Dear God,

I give this day to You.

May my mind stay centered on the things of spirit.
May I not be tempted to stray from love.
As I begin this day, I open to receive You.

Please enter where You already abide.

May my mind and heart be pure and true, and may I not deviate from the things of goodness.
May I see the love and innocence in all mankind,
behind the masks we all wear and the illusions of this worldly plane.

I surrender to You my doings this day.

I ask only that they serve You and the healing of the world.
May I bring Your love and goodness with me, to give unto others wherever I go.
Make me the person You would have me be.

Direct my footsteps, and show me what You would have me do.

Make the world a safer, more beautiful place.
Bless all Your creatures.
Heal us all, and use me, dear Lord, that I might know the joy of being used by You.
Amen."

Morning Prayer from Illuminata by Marianne Williamson


"It's a misconception
to think that you need to be able to

accept, approve of, and agree with

another person's choices and ways of being
in order to be able to love them.


Let go of how you think someone else should be or should live.
It interferes with your ability to love.


You cannot feel love,

give love,

or be loving,

if you have judgment towards someone.


Don't try to fix, change, or control another.


If you feel pain or frustration when you think of someone you love,
leave your worries and concerns with us.


We support them in ways you cannot.

We encourage them in ways you find difficult.

We understand them in ways you are unable.


Give us your challenges, frustrations, and concerns.

Give us your sick, your hungry, and your poor.

We will help you.


But, first, you must give your burdens to us.


Let go.

Trust.

Have faith.

Be at peace


for we are with you now and always."

Desiderata

"Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."

Max Ehrmann


"I am learning to accept
that my mother and/or father
wasn't and/or isn't able to give me
the love and support I needed
and in the way I wanted.

I no longer take it personally
or seek it from her/him
or place my expectations on her/him
or blame her/him
or give my personal power to her/him.

I accept that she/he did the best she/he knew how
with what she/he was given.

I release her/him,
forgive her/him,
and let her/him go.

I am separate from her/him
and in some ways the same.

I am whole and complete
as I accept
and forgive
my mother/father

and as I accept
and forgive
myself."

"When we have done all the work we were sent to Earth to do,

we are allowed to shed our body,

which imprisons our soul like a cocoon encloses the future butterfly.


And when the time is right, we can let go of it and

we will be free of pain,

free of fears and worries -

free as a very beautiful butterfly,

returning home to God..."

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, M.D.


"Sometimes a special relationship is to help us get to the next part of our journey.

It isn't always about joining us for the entire journey.

That's okay.

You can still appreciate each other

for the time spent together,

the experiences created,

and the love shared."

"We may feel the need to be more, do more, or have more.

It springs from the desire to be enough.

Spirit is reminding you today and every day that you are already enough.

You are a Divine being.

proudly, confidently, and joyously

knowing that

YOU ARE ENOUGH."

"I love you,
not only for what you are,
but for what I am when I am with you,

Not only for what you have made of yourself,
but for what you are making of me.

I love you for the part of me that you bring out;
I love you for putting your hand into my heaped up heart
and for passing over all the foolish, weak things
that you can't help dimly seeing there,

And for drawing out into the light
all the beautiful belonging
that no one else had looked quite far enough to find.

I love you,
because you are helping me
to make out of the lumber of my life,
not a tavern, but a temple;
out of the works of my every day
not a reproach, but a song..."

Roy Croft



This beautiful music video brings joy and features talented singers and musicians from around the world.

I'm glad to see we are still promoting love, peace, hope, cooperation, and understanding among people of all nations.

It's a philosophy worth believing in and promoting today.


"Imagine" by John Lennon

"Imagine there's no heaven. It's easy if you try.
No hell below us. Above us only sky.

Imagine all the people living for today.
Imagine there's no countries. It isn't hard to do.

Nothing to kill or die for and no religion too.
Imagine all the people living life in peace.

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us and the world will be as one.

Imagine no possessions. I wonder if you can.
No need for greed or hunger. A brotherhood of man.

Imagine all the people sharing all the world.
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.

I hope someday you'll join us and the world will live as one."
