Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.
In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it.
We receive His peace when we ask Him for it. We keep His peace by extending it to others. Those are the keys and there are no others.
We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what's wrong in your life, or you can focus on what's right.
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.
Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.
Dear God, Please send to me the spirit of Your peace. Then send, dear Lord, the spirit of peace from me to all the world. Amen.
Fill your mind with the meaningless stimuli of a world preoccupied with meaningless things, and it will not be easy to feel peace in your heart.
We are not held back by the love we didn't receive in the past, but by the love we're not extending in the present.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
