Every positive thought is a silent prayer which will change your life. Prayers are at the very least meditations. A positive thought is a silent prayer; a negative thought — a silent curse. A single thought can flood your body with emotional stress, or calming relief. Your thoughts have tremendous power over your feelings and perceptions. When we feel powerless in a hostile world we can at least practice quelling the enmity in our minds. Think deliberately. Think carefully. Think purposefully. Think positively. Pray for your own deliverance from your own vicious thoughts. Ask for forgiveness — forgive yourself for the terrible things you have thought about yourself. Ask for the strength to never curse yourself or others again. Your positive thoughts are both the prayer, and the answer to your prayer. Each positive thought is your refuge and your sanctuary, where in that thoughtful moment, you are safe. Begin now with loving thoughts and allow these quiet prayers to transform your life.

In your life, you may at times feel you have worked so hard, and you have done every single thing you could in your power to earn your way and be a good person. You have given and given and given — trying never to keep a score or be a burden to others. You tried so hard to be selfless and tried to believe that goodpeople are rewarded in the end. You turned your doubts into faith and your anger into love after endless failures and betrayals. You pressed forward with positivity. But, maybe things have not turned out the way you had hoped yet, and you have found yourself in a low place. You looked around and said, “I have helped people, who will help me? I have been so good.” In these moments, it is tempting to ask, “where is my break; what about karma or God — does anyone care? Is everything in life for nothing? Is any of it worth it?” It is so easy to want to give up in times of failure and disappointment in what seems like an endless struggle. We can become depressed and dis-couraged, which means we have lost our courage.

In painful moments of dire discouragement, please know that your soul has a resiliency and a capacity to endure suffering that is beyond anything you can imagine. Even the softest and sweetest heart was made by design for extreme battle. Make no mistake about it, no matter how kind, meek, humble and soft your giving heart is — you are a warrior! Your strength is beyond your own imagination. The further you are challenged and threatened, the more your warrior heart will emerge. When you are backed into a corner, or someone you love is suffering, or you are hanging by your fingernails over the edge of ruin with the cold, hungry abyss peering into your soul — the super-human occurs. Billions of years of dormant survival intelligence will erupt from every pore. You don’t have to be strong, because the strength is in you; it’s in your DNA, in your soul and your essence. You would not believe what skill, power and ability your total intelligence possesses until you are in desperate need. So, do not despair. Have faith. It is going to work out, and you will be delivered. You have the heart of a warrior, and you were designed to survive!

disabilities

I can’t walk but it doesn’t mean I can’t think or that I have a learning disability.   I am physically disabled!   Sometimes when I am out with family, friends and or on my own,  I will sometimes get a person who will act as if I can’t think or they will talk to me in  ”baby talk”, if I am with someone they will talk to them about me!  I understand that some people are not comfortable with people who have a disability, but why?   When we all have some kind of difference we all have some kind of disability which is what makes us unique.   So why is it so weird that I can’t walk and I talk funny,  there is nothing wrong with my mind!   If you have questions about my disability you can ask me not the person I’m with. I have CP, so what!   There is so much more about me than just my disability!   

“Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.” ~Lao Tzu

Each day is a gift waiting to be explored. The possibilities of today are simply endless. -Kathy Loun Stille

“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”Joseph Campbell

 

When You Love What You Have You Have Everything You Need

When you love what you have you have everything you need.
If you are ever going to be great you have to believe in the fact that where you are presently is already a blessing. Many people don’t have much and desire to have more, but the greatest people around all know that growing and moving forward requires the use of the resources that they have in the present to get there.

Learning to be grateful is the beginning of the journey to success. Life will always get difficult, and there will always be bumps along the road. But when you choose to walk in the darkest times with an attitude of gratitude, you are also choosing to proceed in your journey at the same time.

When you stop believing, you stop moving forward. When you stop moving forward you are essentially giving up on life itself. Love and use what you have now to get to the places in life that you really want to be.

 

“Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.”

This summer I have been seeing a beautiful butterfly almost everyday,  that is so cool to see.   I wonder if there is something I could learn from seeing a beautiful butterfly everyday.   A butterfly lifetime is only a few days,  but they are so amazing why can’t they live longer?   May be I’m learning how much each day really matters because you don’t know what will happen.   Love each day like today is the day to make a differences!

It is quite natural, in pursuing enlightenment or just in trying to be happier, to look to your everyday experiences for signs of results. Indeed, your daily life is nothing else but an expression of your spiritual condition. Your life will change as you become more loving, but not in ways you can exactly predict. What happens is not important as how you react to what happens. — Thaddeus Golas

I have so much to be thankful for this week,  it was my birthday yesterday and my day was amazing.   I realize more every year that gifts are not important as love.   The love I know I have in my life is truly all that I am wish for.   I don’t know how to decide it but it is amazing.   I am very lucky!   !

Certainly, none of us enjoy going through struggles, but you have to understand that your struggle may be an opportunity for advancement and promotion. The very thing you are fighting against so tenaciously may be the springboard that catapults you to a new level of excellence. Your challenges may become your greatest assets. — Joel Osteen

“Sometimes, right when you think your life is getting better, then everything falls to pieces and you end-up right back where you started. In those moments just remember, that right when your life has fallen apart, something unexpected will come along; a new person, friend, opportunity or discovery, that will help you put the pieces back together again. Things may be different, but you will love your life again in time.”— Bryant McGill”   Things can change life can change in so many ways but one thing we will always have on our side is love!   We go through life and everything changes but if you know you have love you can make the best out of any time that you are facing.  

Love is everything!   This year I’ve learned and seen how love can impact life in so many ways.   I have always knew that love was the best way to help support someone,  but now I know how important love is even more.   ”The way of peace is the way of love. Love is the greatest power on earth. It conquers all things.— Peace Pilgrim”
