Eye Opener (1950)
 
Love is as necessary to a human being as sunshine is to a plant. 
Without it, the soul of man withers, shrivels and dies. 
Fortunate is the man who has love given to him,
 but even more fortunate is he who earns it. 
The only way to earn love is to love. 
Thou shalt love thy God with all thy heart and thy neighbor as thyself.
 
He who hoards love shall lose it, 
but he who scatters love about him
 as he moves through life finds that it takes
 root and surrounds him on every side.

INTUITION AND INSPIRATION
. . . we ask God for inspiration, an intuitive thought or a decision. We relax and take it easy. We don’t struggle.
— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 86
I invest my time in what I truly love. Step Eleven is a discipline that allows me and my Higher Power to be together, reminding me that, with God’s help, intuition and inspiration are possible. Practice of the Step brings on self-love. In a consistent attempt to improve my conscious contact with a Higher Power, I am subtly reminded of my unhealthy past, with its patterns of grandiose thinking and false feelings of omnipotence. When I ask for the power to carry out God’s will for me, I am made aware of my powerlessness. Humility and a healthy selflove are compatible, a direct result of working Step Eleven.
========================

Raise your words, not your voice.
 It is rain that grows flowers, not Thunder. 
Rumi 
The Words which you speak would be just
 as powerful as the words which Jesus spoke, 
if you knew your word was the LAW whereunto it was sent,
but you must KNOW this WITHIN and not merely accept it with your intellect. 
The Science of Mind page 188 ( all emphasis original) 
Affirmation:
 I get out of my own way and joyously tap into the wisdom 
and knowledge of the universe in all ways and forms.



Gratitude is the greatest of all virtues
 and the parent of all others..Cicero ( a very long time ago!)
 
 
 There’s a hidden sweetness in the stomach’s emptiness. 
We are lutes, no more, no less. 
If the soundbox is stuffed full of anything, no music…. 
When you’re full of food and drink, 
Satan sits where your spirit should…. ~
Rumi

A COURSE IN MIRACLES
Lesson 217
I am not a body. I am free. 
For I am still as God created me.
(197) It can be but my gratitude I earn.
Who should give thanks for my salvation but myself? 
And how but through salvation can I find the Self to 
Whom my thanks are due?
 
I am not a body. I am free. 
For I am still as God created me.
===============

The only meaning of life is to find the all loving God, 
who has kept us apart from himself by shyly hiding from us. 
Paramahansa Yogananda
 
 
The value of three things is justly appreciated
 by all classes of men: youth, by the old; health, 
by the diseased; and wealth, by the needy.
Omar Khayyam

As the Torah is to Jews, the Bible to Christians, or the Qur’an to Muslims, the collected Writings of Bahá’u’lláh are considered by His followers to be Revelation from God. They form the foundation of the Bahá’í Faith.
Throughout the long years of His exile, Bahá’u’lláh revealed passages, equivalent to more than 100 volumes. They include social and ethical teachings, prayers, laws and ordinances, mystical writings, and a fearless proclamation of His message to the most powerful rulers of His time.
Let their glorious, peace-bringing, love-creating words and lessons sink into your hearts…
— Queen Marie of Romania
