We Are All Failures

July 26, 2011


Even the gravest of mistakes can be a blessing if you use it as a key to unlock inner storehouses of fortitude and resolve.


Failure is God’s own tool for carving some of the finest outlines in the character of his children.

The Troubling of a Star

June 14, 2010

If God is guiding each of us with infinite wisdom and inexhaustible love, it follows that God is an organizing force bringing divine order to the universe, and that you are loved and supported no matter how you choose to exercise your free will.



There is a force of love present everywhere, and it can be trusted to bring your own life into order and peace.
Deepak Chopra

The universe, as self-empowerment author Wayne Dyer so poetically noted, is (more…)

The Corner That Lies Around the Corner

June 13, 2010

The magnitude and magnificence of divine guidance is too vast for us to grasp. No matter; life does not depend on human understanding for it to unfold in wisdom.

When we look ahead, we see only chaos. When we look behind, we see only order.
Caroline Myss

You cannot see around the corner that lies around the corner that (more…)

Your Soul Is Being Blown By Great Winds Across the Sky

June 12, 2010

Your angelic emissaries are with you always, guiding you with infinite wisdom and deep love. The implications of this realization are staggering. If God is guiding you with infinite intelligence and inexhaustible love, that means that nothing is random or accidental.

Hold on to that thought the next time your grocery bag breaks in the parking lot, or you trip on the sidewalk and sprain your ankle, or your tire blows out a few blocks from home.




Now and then I go about pitying myself and all the while my soul is being blown by great winds across the sky.

What Is Good, What Is Right, What Is Helpful

June 11, 2010


The more grounded and peaceful you become, the easier it will be to distinguish your intuition from your ego.

Spiritual truth, then, is universally true and without variation through time or place. It always brings peace, harmony, accord, love, compassion, and mercy. Truth can be identified by these qualities. All else is the invention of the ego.
Dr. David R. Hawkins


Let your guard down and your ego will (more…)

Always Aware, Always Listening

Ignoring your intuition and forging stubbornly ahead on your own is inevitably self-defeating.

Why Do You Storm Heaven?

May 27, 2010



Intuitive guidance accounts for one of life’s most profound paradoxes: You already know the answer to every question you can ask.





God, why do I storm heaven for answers that are already in my heart? Every grace I need has already been given me. Oh, lead me to the Beyond within.

As You Wish

April 16, 2009

black-and-white-surrender-to-godWhat is devotion? It is the unceasing practice of acknowledging God’s presence, with the ultimate goal of living your life as one long prayer.

Devotion requires complete immersion in divine love. In the Bhagavad Gita, Hinduism’s definitive guide to the science of self-realization, devotion is referred to as shraddha, the natural inclination of the heart quality to turn toward its Source in faith and surrender.

Surrendering means you recognize that whatever is, is. Accepting that you cannot change what cannot be changed enables you to deal with whatever is in front of you more objectively, free of judgment and emotional resistance.

The word “surrender” raises a red flag for some people, especially for those who believe that they can manipulate the universe to suit their own ends.

Attempting to exert control over every aspect of your life is like swimming upstream—progress is slow and difficult. When you surrender to divine will, you begin swimming with the current. You are in the flow, and life gets easier.

Surrendering to divine will does not mean you are sacrificing your free will. You (more…)
