Im sure you have known people who seem to have lived a "charmed" life in which almost everything they touch turns into gold.These folks seem to just be blessed with a special "something" that most of us only wish we had.I used to wonder a lot about people like that.Most of them were what I considered "nice" folks but there were some who seemed to be rather selfish and snobbish. I often wondered why some of us seemed to have the knack to live this charmed life and others didnt. I think I always knew it was just a matter of learning to live with the "Universal Laws'' and using them in a way to bring the "good" stuff into our lives. In my readings I came across the following statement from a Victoria Moran who said:"People who seem to lead charmed lives do not have a magical assistant, and they're no better or brighter than anybody else. They have simply put into practice, knowingly or not, the attitudes, aptitudes, and propensities that orchestrate harmonious circumstances." Now I am just a simple guy and that statement has a lot of big words in it but to me at least it just says that the "charmed" folks are just living by abiding and adhering to those Universal Laws I previously mentioned. Simply put I would say this: Try to live your life to the fullest while expecting everything you desire to come about in its own perfect time and place.And dont ever give up and remember that Life has no choice but to give you those things which are the ones you believe in the most.And try not to escape the fact that lots of times we just think we need something when in the long run life knows better what it is we need. So if things dont go as planned try to see it not as a failure but rather a life lesson which will pay bigger dividens in the future.I leave you now with a quote from the Science of Mind which states---Every hour we are meeting the eternal realities of life, and in such degree as we cooperate with these eternal realities in love, in peace, in wisdom, and in joy--believing and receiving---we are automatically blessed. I agree wholeheartedly with that statement. So in signing off I will say this to you, go in peace, go in love, and go with confidence that this one eternal moment belongs to you and you can do ANYTHING with it you so desire. My hope is that you will take this moment and try and do something nice for someone else. The greatest gift any of us have is the ability to help make someone elses life a little better.Enjoy the Moment, for it is truly all any of us have!

How do we remain calm and self assured when all hell's breaking loose around us? I know for me it does take quite a bit of adjusting at times just to remain at peace on the inside as well as the outer.But I do believe at the same time that there is a place within my innermost being that cannot ever be roiled up by anything that is going on in this 3 dimesional world. And it remains my burden to see that I always keep this sacred place unsoiled by any one or anything.And this is a burden I gladly bear! One of my favorite authors Kahlil Gibran, AKA The Prophet, has stated the following:"We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them." How true he is, how true! And from the Science of Mind comes this jewel:No matter what our emotional storm, or what our objective situation may be, there is always a something hidden in the inner being that has never been violated. Now that is a very reassuring statement. My hope for each of you kind folks is that you have discovered this "inner" place of your own and that you can always turn to it at any given time to remind yourself that all is well in your life now and forever! And please remember to try and do at least one good thing for someone today just because you can and that you wish to!

Everything good created has risen from the state of love.Simply put pure and perfect love is the cornerstone of all that is right with us and the world we are now in.George Sand has stated the following:" There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved." I agree completely. And in the Science of Mind textbook comes this quote:Love is the sole impulse for creation..... So whatever your condition, your status in life, or whatever anything, whatever you do, do it with love and out of love, and then it will be a gift to all of us!

As human beings I think we are often guilty of thinking we are the center of everything that is going on. At least it feels that way to us.I mean its human nature to feel our problems are the "biggest" our ideas are the "grandest" and our stories should be front and center.But I think in reality we must realize that we are all a part of everything that is, and no more nor no less important than anyone or anything else.From the Science of Mind comes this quote: Man(woman) already has, within himself, the key to freedom, But he must come to realize his relation to the Whole. This relationship is one of complete Unity. So my hope is that today all of us can see and truly feel our relationship to ALL and start to treat things as the treasures they really are. I will leave you with another quote that I absolutely love. It comes from Joan Borysenko who states the following:"When we begin to think more about the interdependence of things, we take our place as one more star in a magnificent universe, rather than as the sun around which the universe revolves. Our heart grows peaceful." I now leave all of you with thoughts of love peace and joy. If you can then right now try to do something nice for someone and I guarantee that will make you feel more like the bright shining star that you truly are!

As human beings we seem to be tied to our possessions and find that we spend a lot of our time trying to make more money so we can get more possessions.Then we find our possessions are not really making us happy so waht do we do? Yeah, we go and amass more stuff thinking it will surely make us happy this time.And no matter how much money we have we seem to always want more. Not that there is anything wrong with wanting to be wealthy but we must be careful so that we dont spend all our precious time working harder to just have more money. I will leave you with a quote from George Santayana who stated: "I like to walk among the beautiful things that adorn the world; but private wealth I should decline, or any sort of personal possessions, because they would take away my liberty." I leave all of you with thoughts of love , peace, and happiness to you and yours. And please try and do something nice for someone today just for the heck of it!
