our misery or unhappiness is

life is to be continually fearing
you will make one.”

False Evidence Appearing Real = fear
Heart presence is about having more of your real self show up in each moment. It’s about being mentally, emotionally, and physically present in the heart. We often put so much energy and focus on how we “present” ourselves – the way we appear, what we wear,what we say, what car we drive. If we put a fraction of that energy into how we present ourselves to ourselves on the mental and emotional levels, we can greatly reduce anxiety and increase our vitality.
~ Doc Childre
We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.
~ H. G. Wells
If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
~ Marcus Aurelius
If we are physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually fit; there is nothing in life that we can’t handle. Life can be beautiful adventure…no matter what comes up.

Life is an opportunity given to satisfy the hunger and thirst of the soul.

The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance – and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.
~ Oprah Winfrey
The reality of life is that your perceptions – right or wrong – influence everything else you do. When you get a proper perspective of your perceptions, you may be surprised how many other things fall into place.
~ Roger Birkman

A daily meditation posted by my husband, Way Spiritual Dave that I thought I might share for those who can relate, like me… the last quote by WSD, is his…
These palms seem to be waving goodbye to the moon as it prepares to set in the distance. I swear, one brave frond sprout looks like a telescope that enables the tree to see better above the others. Or is it just my imagination?
“It is our choices…that show what we
truly are, far more than our abilities”

The Third Step Prayer
God, I offer myself to Thee — to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of life. May I do Thy will always!
If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise.
