Here we go… Read more
You are goodness and mercy and compassion and understanding. You are peace and joy and light. You are forgiveness and patience, strength and courage, a helper in time of need, a comforter in time of sorrow, a healer in time of injury, a teacher in times of confusion.
You are the deepest wisdom and the highest truth; the greatest peace and the grandest love. You are these things. And in moments of your life you have known yourself as these things. Choose now to know yourself as these things always.
10 Million Clicks For Peace co-founder, Rick Beneteau, with some powerful affirmations for parents:
I recognize and honor that being a parent is the most important role I will ever play in life, and that I have the opportunity to be the most influential teacher in the life of my child, so I affirm …
I will teach my child to be compassionate, that we as human beings are all connected.
I will teach my child to be tolerant, that we are all much more alike than different. Read more
A veterinarian prescribed three huge pills to be given to a sick mule. “How do I get him to take the pills?” the farmer asked.
“It’s quite simple,” replied the vet. “Just insert the pill into a pipe. Put the pipe in the mule’s mouth and blow on the other end. He will swallow the pill without realizing it.”
The next day the farmer returned, looking sickly. “You look awful!” said the doctor. “What happened?” The farmer explained, “He blew first.”
It occurs to me that some people will swallow anything! Maybe not literally, but it seems that some people are ready to believe in any new “get-rich” scheme; to follow any new fad; to swallow any fantastic story! Read more
Forgiveness is a stream of love, which washes away all impurities wherever it flows. By keeping this spring of love, which is in the heart of man, running, man is able to forgive, however great the fault of his fellow man may seem. One who cannot forgive closes his heart. The sign of spirituality is that there is nothing you cannot forgive, there is no fault you cannot forget. Do not think that he who has committed a fault yesterday must do the same today, for life is constantly teaching and it is possible in one moment a sinner may turn into a saint.
~Hazrat Inayat Khan
In his tape Living Faith (Random House Audio Books, 1996), President Jimmy Carter shares that forgiveness is fundamental to his life. He says that without the knowledge that he can be forgiven, it would be impossible for him to face his own shortcomings. This even includes forgiveness of himself.
He relates that both he and his wife, Rosalynn, are “strong-willed” persons who find it difficult to admit being at fault.
One day, after a particularly disturbing argument, Carter decided that he would never let another day end with each of them angry with the other. So he went out to his wood shop and cut a thin piece of walnut, a little smaller than a bank check. On it, he carved the words, “Each evening forever this is good for an apology or forgiveness, as you desire.” That evening, he gave the plaque to Rosalynn. He reports that, so far, he has been able to honor it each time Rosalyn has presented it to him. Read more

A John Harricharan Interview
JH: We would like to discuss prosperity, Foster. Most people believe that money is extremely important. To some extent they also believe that they create the circumstances surrounding them. Yet, how do you explain the many people around us who appear to be doing everything possible to make ends meet, who seem to have the proper attitudes and motivation and still they are having an extremely difficult time?
Foster: You said one word, John, that I think has a lot to do with it. The word is “appear.” You also mentioned that most people consider money very important. Perhaps they consider it important but I want to draw a fine line and say that perhaps they feel it’s important but they don’t place an importance upon it. You see, anything in life upon which you place an importance causes an energy to go out of you to magnetize and draw to you the very thing you place the importance on. Concerning money, individuals who place adequate enthusiasm and importance on it, who are motivated — start thinking the things, doing the things and attracting the things and people that result in money. Others have the feeling that although money is important, they do not deserve it and if they do not deserve it, they do not get it. Read more
