“I love you to infinity and beyond, and kilometers above heaven.” 6 yr old Eden to her Dad Montana & Mommy Kirsten, 2010
“There is nothing stronger in the world than gentleness.” Han Suyin.
“A confused and directionless life has (other) consequences. Lack of knowledge of your mission can become a destructive force in your relationships. As the late theologian, mystic, and Harvard Professor Howard Thurman often said, there are two questions that we have to ask ourselves.
The first is “Where am I going?” and the second is “Who will go with me?” If you ever get these questions in the wrong order, you are in trouble. Without self-understanding, without aim, we can hurt others around us as well as ourselves. If we don’t have a clear sense of how to see the bigger picture when things go wrong, we are not able to respond appropriately to events or people.
By coming to know your mission, you can live your life in a way that makes best use of your energy. When you are working well with your energy, you are also making the best expression of your personal power….”

“everything lost is found again……Everything hurt is healed again.” C Myss
“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” The Dalai Lama
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.”
“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.”
“All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” Goethe
...”I did my best to notice
When the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender
I was brought but I was kind
And sometimes I get nervous
When I see an open door
Close your eyes
Clear your heart…
Cut the cord”…

Giving means extending one’s Love with no conditions,no expectations & no boundaries.
Peace of mind occurs, therefore when we put all our attention into giving & have no desire to get anything from, or to change, another person.
The giving motivation leads to a sense of inner peace & joy that is unrelated to time.
G.Jampolsky, ‘love is letting go of Fear’.
We are the architect of our reality. Gregg Braden
Expect the best; convert problems into opportunities;
Be dissatisfied with the status quo;
Focus on where you want to go, instead of where you are coming from; and most importantly,
Decide to be happy, knowing it is an attitude, a habit gained from daily practice,
and not a result or payoff. Author Unknown (& thank you)
Great Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. Albert Einstein
Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it. Buddha

Life has taught us that love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction. There is no comradeship except through union in the same high effort. Antoine de Saint Exupery
You be perfectly you, let me be perfectly me: uniquely and mutually flawed. And together we can discover what it is to be human, and what two humans might be capable of being together. Joy Houghton
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.
Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. Denis Waitley
You cannot be truthful if you are not courageous
You cannot be loving if you are not courageous
You cannot be trusting if you are not courageous
You cannot inquire into reality if you are not courageous
Hence courage comes first
And everything else follows.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
