For some of us, the world appears to provide
only a fixed quantity of each resource -
a limited amount of food, of money,
of love, of success, of appreciation.
For others, life is unlimited.
Their world expands with the generosity, compassion,
inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you wish to experience peace,
provide peace for another.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

We return thanks to our mother,
the earth, which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams
which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines
for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the corn, and to her sisters,
the beans and squashes, which give us life.
We return thanks to the bushes and trees,
which provide us with fruit.
We return thanks to the wind,
which, moving the air, has banished diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and the stars,
which have given us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to our grandfather He-no,
that he has protected his grandchildren from witches and reptiles,
and has given us his rain.
We return thanks to the sun,
that he has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,
in whom is embodied all goodness,
and who directs all things for the good of his children.
- Iroquois traditional

the gifts you have been given,
the difference you have made
and the direction in which you are headed.

If we fail to plan, we merely bob helplessly -

If we resist whatever life delivers to us,
we create untold misery for ourselves.
If we act with vision and commitment,
and then accept whatever Spirit provides,
we live a life of purpose and joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I believe that anyone can conquer fear
by doing the things he fears to do,
provided he keeps doing them until he gets
a record of successful experience behind him.

It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,

Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.

If you listen, you will hear the music.
It is the song of angels.

Strain to hear the song of angels.
Listen to the melody within your soul.
- Neale Donald Walsch

in a cosmic religion for the future:

natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.
- Albert Einstein

one's sense of inherent worth.

and I'm willing.

is an untruth - an opinion, an assumption,
a point-of-view based on our past.

so I may as well enjoy it"
kind of holding-on.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life may not be the party we hoped for,
but while we are here we might as well dance.
