"If we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children; and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won't have to struggle; we won't have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace, until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which consciously or unconsciously the whole world is hungering."
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed." ~Albert Einstein
Find a place in your consciousness where living with awe and wonder makes sense and spend as much time as you are able in that place; embrace that view of the world and thrive. ~Dave Kenyon
"Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it."
“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.”
Our world is trnsformed one person's consciousness at a time. The world we experience is brought to each of us by how we think, feel and act toward it and ourselves. May your only filter to the world be unconditional love! ~Dave Kenyon
Some Enlightened Thanksgiving Thoughts
by Ernie Fitzpatrick
I am THANKFUL that I no longer embrace some of my earlier childhood beliefs such as:
>I am THANKFUL that God is not a PUNISHER sending people to hell eternally.
>I am THANKFUL that we're not brought into the world FLAWED and sinful, but in the image of God
>I am THANKFUL that we are not VICTIMS but participants in the creation of nature and our very lives.
> I am THANKFUL that I am ONE with Creator and creation and not separated.
> I am THANKFUL that I get to PARTICIAPTE in how my life and world will develop
> I am THANKFUL that there's not a COSMIC OVERLORD that I need to worry about pleasing each day.
>I am THANKFUL that as humans we are not all-powerful, but we are ALL POWERFUL.
>I am THANKFUL that the Creator is PURSUASIVE and not coercive!
>I am THANKFUL that we are neither subjects of a vengeful God, nor victims of a random universe.
>I am THANKFUL that we hold within our collective selves the ability to achieve a positive CRITICAL MASS before we reach a critical massacre.
"The peace within becomes the harmony without."
"We are multi dimensional beings of light embracing harmony, unity and peace. We seek soul development and spiritual evolution that we may manifest and create miracles. There is joy in the present moment if we engage the heart and accept the full bloom of lifes magnificence. Find your purpose, express your freedom, nourish yourself with love and you will make a profound difference in the world."
"Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well" ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Harmony involves unity within our thoughts, feelings and actions protected with an umbrella of unconditional love. ~Dave Kenyon
"We are all One, One Energy, from One Light. Let us band together as Humans, with love for all of humanity, living each day in harmony as we explore our spirit." - Kala
"Strive to create harmony and peace and yours will be an awakened life. The essence of being alive is loving acceptance of yourself, for once we accept ourselves we unleash the beauty that lies within our soul. Like a tree from a seed the generosity within will bear fruit if we plant love wherever we go. Be a Spiritual Gardener and the soul of nature will smile as the earth sings a song of everlasting joy."
"Each small task of everyday life is part of the total harmony of the universe."
~St. Theresa of Lisieux
Harmony is the state of convergence where your thoughts, feelings and actions are in concert with your heart-center. Dave Kenyon
