It is good to have an end to a journey, but it is the journey that matters, in the end. 

(Ursula Le Guin)


The dark see darkness but those filled with Light see only Light in the making.  (Loni Todd)


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. 

(Max Erhamm, The Desiderata)


I am a channel for the creative power of the universe.  (Shakti Gawain)


I no longer try to change outer things.  They are simply a reflection.  I change my inner perception and the outer reveals the beauty so long obscured by my own attitude.  I concentrate on my inner vision and find my outer view transformed.  I find myself attuned to the grandeur of life and in unison with the perfect order of the universe.  (Daily Word)


My sky and My earth cannot contain Me but I AM contained entirely in the heart of he who adores Me.  (Hadith)


The trivialities of every day, the disappointments and the petty annoyances and the hurts you allow yourselves to receive from daily life, are all very small;  but you yourselves allow them to seem very big.  Let them recede, concentrate your whole being upon the love of God.  

(The Quiet Mind)


The only way to pass any test is to take the test.  All tests on every level are always repeated one  way or another until you pass.  (Aborigine Spirit)


We should not attempt to hold onto things, life is forever changing and so must we.  (Ken Mills)


The Optimist Creed

- Promise Yourself -

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of

trouble. (Christian D. Larson)

Listen!  You have now and always have had, through this power of thinking, dominion over all the kingdoms of the earth.  If you but know it, you have now, this moment, only to Think and SPEAK THE WORD, - realizing your power, and that I, God, your Omniscient, Omnipotent Self, will bring about the results, and the waiting consciousness of the invisible cells of all matter upon which your will and attention become focused, - which waiting consciousness is My consciousness, remember, - will begin immediately to obey and do exactly according to the image or plans you have prepared by your thinking.  Therefore, think no more you are separated from me, and abide with me in the Celestial Realm of the Eternal where all power, all wisdom, and all love, LIVE, but await expression through you.  To think is to create.  As you feel in your heart, so is it with you.  (The Impersonal Life)


We all need to remember that our work is Jehovih’s work, and that it has power beyond our comprehension. (Alfred Holmes)


Whenever one person or group of persons does something good, such service in truth helps all persons because we are all in truth one harmonious whole.  (Bob Sullivan)


As Faithists, do we not take great joy in knowing that He, our Father, is with us at all tines.  His hand ever reaching towards us, to help, His children, in their resurrection. He is ever with us. (Bob Sullivan)


Happiness is equivalent to moving into Oneness with the Divine."  Joan Greer


From the star of Light within the mind of God,

Let Light stream forth into the minds of all children.

Let Light shine over the world.

From the circle of Love within the Heart of God,

Let Love flow forth into the hearts of all children.

Let Love bless the world.

From the center of Divine Will within the Soul of God,

Let Divine Will guide the wills of all children.

Let Divine Will inspire the world.                                                       (The Great Invocation)


You must not let your phantom goods possess you so completely that they are bound to suffocate all higher longings of your soul; longings which could still awaken the spiritual energies you need if you would finally dispel the clouds which hide your real self, your soul, the Presence of God.   (B Yin R)


Every soul that lives on earth with you today, and all who shall live after you in ages yet to come, will have to learn the art of asking their own questions.  (B Yin R)


Many a person could forge himself a happier and better fate if only he would, from the first, consistently refuse to make the least concession to the impulse driving him toward evil, as soon as he perceives that inclination even faintly in his mind. (B Yin R)


There is hope that by the lapse of time, and after my extinction here on Earth, my writings will

be more valued than during my lifetime.   (Nostradamus)


We should believe that God is the invisible partner in our lives and affirm that divine love goes before us and prepares the way.  We should permit ourselves to be guided, for there is something within us, deep at the center of our  being, which knows what we ought to do and how we ought to do it.  (Science of Mind)


It is the hour of healing in the Temple.  Beloved, stay by me, and let us heal the world together.  For out of Love, grows peace, and out of peace, creation, and creation, beauty; now and always.  (Ruth St. Denis)


I am free from all destructive forces and thoughts, all selfishness and greed.  I am now preparing my mind, body and soul for the coming of high spiritual forces which are harmonious with love, the Ever-Present Spirit of All Life, Jehovih, so that I may become attuned to thee.  Unfold within me thine attributes, O Father, that I may manifest forth Thy Light.  (Leland Barton)
