a fresh start.

Sunday, August 28, 2011

Last week I gave up. I lost my job, now didn't have the money to go to my 50th high school reunion, and in general felt very sorry for myself. I ate two bags of cookies, and a quart of ice cream. I stopped visiting the Spark site because I was too embarressed, and I felt I had simply failed yet again. I have no real friends,and my kids live far away. I even considered suicide. Then the mail came. I had forgotten that I had ordered The Spark. I'm an avid reader so thought I should at least check it out. I started in the middle of the book, and read a few things that caused me to start at the beginning. I still need to work out my real goals. I see now why I wasn't getting anywhere with losing weight, but that's ok because now I will start over. I will read the whole book first this time. I will take it slow, and make small changes. I have my notebook, and Ive made my start. I need a friend this time around too. Wish me persistence.

    The more enlightened one becomes…the more liberated one become!

    In STILLNESS & SILENCE one’s “true self is revealed,” as are the’ inner revelations that have the potential to transform one’s life in the best possible way.

    If one freely and routinely commits to this “quiet time,” one gradually comes to comprehend the rhythms and cycles that affect all life. For those who consciously and consistently choose to live in harmony with these rhythms & cycles the friction created through opposition to them is gradually diminished and/or eliminated.

    Life happens! One may not be empowered to change a negative circumstance but one is empowered to positively change one’s attitude towards it.

    CHANGE IS THE’ ONE CONSTANT IN LIFE and why Abraham Lincoln uttered the phrase “This too shall pass.”

    Peace, passion and purpose are the powerful gifts one gives one’s self.

    Befriend yourself first and gradually true friends will appear. Don’t be hard on yourself…we human beings are flawed by design!!! We are diamonds in the rough and for every lesson learned, every hardship valiantly overcome, a facet of our WHOLE SELF becomes brilliantly realized!

    You don’t need good luck, you need Good Light. I wish you abundant Light!
