1. “What do you want for our planet, for your community? If what you want is peace and cooperation, and you are willing to really not know how that will come about, then your mind will open to discover.” ~ from Gangaji’s Letting the World into Your Heart

3. The Past & The Big Picture: The past only has an impact on the present when you continue to waste your powerful thought and feeling energies on something that no longer exists at all, other than in your own mind. Whatever it was that happened is finished now, and no matter how uncomfortable it was for you, you need to come to the understanding that at some level you chose it, and that it helped to build your character and make you a stronger individual.
Whenever you do find yourself wondering why something turned out the way it did, I suggest calling to mind the old adage that often times ‘God does work in mysterious ways’. The truth is, you really don’t know the ‘big picture’. So, even though you might be inclined to feel sad about a certain event in your past, make the decision to accept the realization that there is a higher order to things, and that something good will eventually come of it. – Jeff Maziarek, from “Spirituality Simplified”
4. How to tell if you are dead or alive: if we are fearful, unhappy or concerned for any reason, then we are dead. If Peace, Love, Joy and Light are in our awareness, then we are alive. Our function here is to be about the business of raising the dead.
