Thought is Action

If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.

Grateful for You

"Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul."

Often we focus our sense of gratitude outward forgetting what's within. Take some time today to acknowledge what about yourself you're grateful for.

Life is filled with suffering, but it is also filled with many wonders, like the blue sky, the sunshine, the eyes of a baby. To suffer is not enough. We must also be in touch with the wonders of life. They are within us and all around us, everywhere, any time.

Begin Today Each Day

Inner Beauty, originally uploaded by chrissie2003.

This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good.
