In his textbook The Science of Mind Ernest Holmes wrote “Do not dwell upon adversity but think plenty into everything, for there is power in the word. Meditate on the things you are doing as being already done–complete and perfect.”

Stop going over and over in your mind how bad things are or have been. It is only in moving to a higher place of thought that you can move on in your life. It is only in letting go of the past that you can move forward. It is only in surrendering to God that your life can change. It is only through prayer and meditation that you can transform your life.

Forgiveness is extremely important if you want to move on to a place of serenity. Look back over your life and go through a process of forgiving for each person who harmed you. Forgive and love yourself.

I’m Back!

Quan Yin in Gail's Garden

Today is a day to make a new beginning.

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution?

I did! I have decided to get back to writing and be productive starting today.

One of my favorite quotes is “This is the day the Lord has made. Let us be glad and rejoyce in it.” I am so grateful for all that I have and all that I can do. I know that many are unhappy and searching for a way to bring themselves out of a slump. So here are some suggestions:

Find the perfect book. I have just started reading one that I am finding perfect for me at this moment.
The Power of Kindness: The Unexpected Benefits of Leading a Compassionate Life written by Piero Ferrucci.
The forward is by the Dalai Lama. I highly recommend this inspirational book.

Exercise: Start slow and build up. Exercise produces endorphins and I always have a feeling of accomplishment
when I exercise.

Meditate at least once a day. Meditation is the path to enlightenment and don’t we all want that?

A new perspective: Take a new look at the possibilites for your life. Look at your life in a new way.

Ask Spirit (God) for inspiration and guidance. “Ask and you will receive. Seek and you will find.”

These are Universal Truths.

Blessings to you all in this new and exciting year of 2012.
