Any time, day or night, I go within to pray.
As the sun rises each morning and I awake, I go within to align with Spirit.
I let go of the belief that something is missing in my life, and I accept my good.
As I open my heart and mind to God's light, I am assured that I am never alone.
During the day, I step aside from my routine and once again go within for reflection and guidance.
A few moments of connection with God centers and renews me.
As the sun sets and I prepare to rest, I turn within once more simply to enjoy peace and quiet. I reflect upon my day with gratitude.
Thankful that God is with me always.
The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1 NIV)
What is Evolution?
“We began as a mineral.
We emerged into plant life, and into the animal state, and then into being human, and always we have forgotten our former states, except in early spring when we slightly recall being green again.
That’s how a young person turns towards a teacher.
That’s how a baby leans toward the breast, without knowing the secret of its desire, yet turning instinctively.
Humankind is being led along an evolving course, through the migration of intelligences, and though we seem to be sleeping, there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream, and that will eventually startle us back to the truth of who we are.”

Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?Actually, who are you not to be?You are a child of God.Your playing small does not serve the world.There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.We are all meant to shine, as children do.We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
