Who is God?

God's project

I am the bursting forth of goodness, of strength, of beauty, of humor, of cussedness, of ordinariness, of almost angelic balance, of splendid uniqueness. I am an opportunity for God to accomplish something marvelous as me. I let God do it! I join wholeheartedly in the divine adventure of making something splendid that never has been before in the whole history of humanity. I hardly can wait to see what God and I shall make! I'm ready, God; let's go! You lead the way and I'll do my best to embody you in the fullness of beautiful accomplishment. I'll not waste time regretting that I didn't join in the fun more fully long ago. I let that past be past, as I relish the present, in which we happily co-create.

   
Who should I be grateful to?

Gratitude.

If you wake up in the morning with gratitude on your mind, it's pretty difficult, in fact almost impossible, to feel anything but peace. Spend a
moment each day thinking of someone to thank. As you think of people to be grateful for, remember that it can be anyone- someone who held the door open for you, or a physician who saved your life.

   
Why shouldn´t I feel sorry for myself?

Feeling Sorry For Yourself

"Never feel sorry for yourself -- it has a deadly effect on spiritual well-being. Recognize all problems, no matter how difficult, as opportunities for spiritual growth, and make the most of these
opportunities."
-- Mildred Norman

   
Is crying good for me?

Tears

Tears are often the telescope by which men see far into heaven.
-- Henry Ward Beecher

   
Why does it always feel like I´m missing out on all the good stuff?

Don't Miss Out.

Most of us miss out on life's big prizes. The Pulitzer. The Nobel. Oscars. Tonys. Emmys. But we're all eligible for life's small pleasures. A pat on the back. A kiss behind the ear. A four-pound bass. A full moon. An empty parking space. A crackling
fire. A great meal. A glorious sunset. Hot soup. Cold beer.
Don't fret about copping life's grand awards. Enjoy its tiny delights. There are plenty for all of us.

   
How can I gain more inner peace?

Do Not Hurt People.

"Never say anything to hurt anyone. Moreover . . . refrain from double talk, from shrewd and canny remarks that are designed to advance our interests at someone's disadvantage. We are to turn our back
upon evil, and in every way possible, do good, help people and bring blessings into their lives."
-- Norman Vincent Peale

   
Everyone makes me feel like I have to be perfect. What can I do?

Less Than Perfect

Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that binds us together.

Open Your Eyes

Religion

True religion is the life we lead, not the creed we profess.

-- Anonymous

   
What can I do when darkness overcomes me?

than to curse the dark
-- Ancient Chinese Proverb

   
Why is rest important?

Idleness

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
-- Sir J Lubbock

   
Why do I continue to suffer?

Deepak Chopra

   
Why should I feel grateful and love my life?

Love the life you have... create the life you love.

   
How do I know if I am making the right choices?

In the Silence.

“To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions.”
-- Deepak Chopra

   
Why should I get over my past?

Living In The Past

Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.

   
How can I maintain inner peace?

Mystery

"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

   
How do I reach a goal?

Make A Contract With You

Why should I question anything?

Believing

It is easy to believe that something must be true because everyone else believes it. But the truth often only comes to light by daring to question the unquestionable, by doubting notions which are so commonly believed that they are taken for granted.

   
How can I make other people stop making me feel inferior?

Feeling Inferior.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
-- Eleanor Roosevelt

   
What is all this talk about having a quiet mind?

A Quiet Mind

A quiet mind is the foundation of inner peace. And inner peace translates into outer peace. Meditation teaches you to be calm by giving you the experience of absolute relaxation. It teaches you to be at peace.

   
How do I hear my inner self?

Muscles

"Like an ability or a muscle, hearing your inner wisdom is strengthened by doing it."
-- Robbie Gass (The Artist's Way by Julie Cameron)

   
Why should I slow down?

Don't Run

Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where you've been but also where you are going.

   
How can I even come close to reaching my dreams?

Dreams

"Far away there in the sunshine are
my highest aspirations.
I may not reach them,
but I can look up and see their beauty,
believe in them,
and try to follow where they lead."

Louisa May Alcott

   
What gives life meaning?

Don't Take For Granted.

Don't take for granted the things closest you your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.

   
How can I be brave enough to live my own life?

Dare to be Different

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
Champion the right to be yourself. Dare to be different and to set your own pattern: Live your own life, and follow your own star.
-- Lin Yutang

-- "The Station" by Robert J. Hastings

   
How can problems get solved?

Dream of Things
