and each of us has the ability to make

without taking time for self-renewal and play,
abandons the joy and the true value of life.

or too menial when offered to Thee in loving service.

Expectation (demand) is always a cause of suffering.
Rather than "expecting" to be repaid
when we "loan" something to someone,
consider the "loans" we make to be forward payments
for the "loans" we received from
our ancestors, nurturers and others.
Request that any "loan" that we make be repaid FORWARD,
when the recipient is able,
and then completely forget about the "loan."
It is no longer our business if, when, or how
the "loan" is repaid - or is not repaid.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We need to find God, and he cannot

We need silence to be able to touch souls.
- Mother Teresa

You yourself are the creator.
If you find that place within you

perhaps even enjoy it, as your life.

I am the owner of my choices.
I am the source for the perspectives I choose to hold...
regardless of how aware I am of why or how I come to possess
that particular perspective.
It takes courage to look into the mirror of our souls, absent excuses.
I will look into that mirror little bits at a time.
SEE and ACT. SEE what I can bear to see and ACT upon what I am able.
This is the heart of a gentle invitation to personal responsibility.

In my own deepening understanding of myself
I find my capacity to serve others is deepened as well.
