Taking the First Footstep

TAKING THE FIRST FOOTSTEP with a good thought, the second with a good word, and the third with a good deed, I entered paradise.~Zoraster

With the beginning of each day, we are to establish our intentions for the day. Carrying out this intention takes a second effort…a kind word. Thirdly, our good deed. This is a winning combination for any day. No matter what the day brings, our intentions remain forever engrained within our hearts…

Gift Unto Them

Doing good unto others not a required act, but a gift unto them and you.~Ani Po

Our greatest act of kindness does not come from giving freely to others, but in itself the act of giving is uplifting to the self. In giving we are receiving, freely and unconditionally…we are freed.

Thoughts Live; They Travel Far

We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.~Swami Vivekananda

Every second is an opportunity to align with that which we desire. Use caution when speaking. Carefully choosing words may be the difference of paradise and the opposition. In any given situation, pause, speak only positively…or don’t speak at all…for our speech is an extension of our thoughts…

Thoughts Live they travel far



True Peace

True peace is not something found or learned, but accepted.~Ani Po

No amount of information or guidance will help without first accepting the path of peace. One cannot learn how to be peaceful, but can accept to be peace. If the day proves difficult or is not going as planned, simply allow it to show the areas necessary for growth. Find peace within, have without…
