there is only love

January 22, 2018

I woke up yesterday and looked out the window. I saw a hawk circling high in the sky, unusual for Revere, Massachusetts. I felt a compulsion to say, "rabbit, rabbit, rabbit" like we do at the start of the New Year, although it was January 21.

A voice said in my inner mi...

I wonder what would happen, if instead of pursuing ordinary goals, we just pursue peace of mind?

Imagine if I increased my output of peace and love by 1,000%. What would happen then?

You say, "I'll use my spirituality to manifest my best life, now!" But I say, "infinite love is here in your presence, but you don't see it."

If you would stop worrying about your so-called life, you would discover your life.

If you see yourself as a diligent person in a...
