Freedom from guilt


Guilt (whether it's our own or guilt we lay on others) separates us from God, 
people, and ourselves. It steals our sense of connection, our joy, 
and our peace of mind..

Doing life


Life is about patience, forgiveness, tolerance,
continuing to grow so that we can be our best, 
and random selfless acts of kindness...

Investing ourselves in love




When we allow ourselves to judge, blame, practice a belief system that subscribes 
to guilt and punishment, our hearts are forced to live on a battleground. In taking responsibility for our part in things and no longer seeing ourselves as victims, in forgiving ourselves and others, and by practicing true compassion, our hearts will flourish and we will have put an end to the idea of war and separation...

Pure love



Love is not about choosing who give our affections to. 
It's about living with an open heart; a heart free of judgement.  
Often the hardest people to love are our best teachers.

Connecting with our inner self




We hide our pain, even from ourselves, because we don't want to feel it. 
We swallow hurt because we think showing our emotions is a sign of weakness. 
However, the definition of courage is the ability to connect with our own feelings...

Healing


When we have made peace with the past,
we come to know freedom...

Loving all that is


Universal love is not the same as personal love. 
Universal love spills itself into every experience.
Universal love is self-love expressing itself outwardly.

Open arms



If it hurts to hang on, it's time to let go. 
Letting go doesn't necessarily mean we have to give up something. 
Sometimes, we just need to loosen our grip...

Seeing only good...



 There is beauty in all that is... The ability to see it comes from 
accepting things as they are, not as we wish them to be...

Faith




Sometimes the best thing we can do to help someone is to simply trust their journey
The kind of faith that it takes to do that comes from our ability to trust our own journey...

Aligning with our soul



If we have the good fortune to discover the things 
that speak to our soul, we then, must have the courage to 
create a life that represents what we love...

A new beginning



Fear creates a bleak little world. Bleakness creates feelings of hopelessness. How do we manage the hopelessness? We find ways to run from it through addiction. We become addicted to having fun, feeling good, chasing the feeling of happiness, love, power, achieving... How do we overcome these self-defeating habits? We begin to create something new by stepping away from these behaviors, facing whatever fears we were running from to begin with, and trust God for the rest...

Looking deeper




Free yourself of worldly ideas.
Meaning is found when we look 
beyond the meaningless...

A season of joy



Free of desire, I am content to lie in the grass
and breathe in the mystery of life...

Finding ourselves



When we abandon ourselves, loneliness lives in 
the shadow of every decision we make...

Lack doesn't exist for those who
live in a state of gratitude…

A child's joy



Don't ever lose the child-like part of you that is curious,
 playful, adventurous, spontaneous, open-hearted, 
and who is awed by the simplest moments...

The happy learner



Sometimes truth isn't pretty nor easy to accept, 
but a true seeker is someone who knows that truth is their friend...

Creating color





In earlier years, I was closed minded. The little world I had boxed myself into had no color or wiggle room. Things were either black or white, right or wrong. All things which were taught to me as a child. It wasn't until life became really painful that I began to examine what I had created. Since then, it has been a process of un-learning, re-creating, listening to my own truth...

Being guided by God




It is your season for joy. 
Life wants to take you places 
so beautiful that
you haven’t even dreamed 
of them yet.

Be sure to leave behind all 
the pieces of the past 
that won’t compliment 
the beauty of what 
lies ahead.

Don’t diminish the experience
by trying to plan the journey.
Your soul hungers for 
something that is beyond
the realm of your mind.

     The moment you say “yes”,
    your old life will vanish 
    and your new one 
     will dazzle you with
it’s splendor…

Precious moments



Some of the most precious gifts may be the ones 
we underestimate: fellowship, faith, simplicity, serenity...

Picture yourself...


Picture yourself as a woman who
stays beautifully balanced with humility, 
is comfortable in her own skin, 
loves without attachments...

Knowing ourselves


What is your story? Your biggest hurdle?
Your saddest moment? What makes you laugh? 
Are you forgiving, flexible? Is it easy to be vulnerable?
How do you treat yourself? What are your dreams?
