I cherish a list of diamond-hearted friends around the world to whom I send positive energy each day so that they may activate their wisdom and true happiness. I also pray for the happiness of everyone in my community, region, nation, and the world. I consciously expand my sense of love every day. Now, I want to share with you some messages of love that came to me in my dreams, interspersed here with photos of people, places, and things that over the years have helped me increase joy, love and friendship in my life. Enjoy!
I want you to know that I believe in your limitless potential as a human being, and I hope you will likewise always believe in yourself. I believe that your life is even more precious and important on this Earth than you may realize, and you have a mission to fulfill that’s uniquely yours. There is no one else who can do it.
Please have patience with yourself, have patience with your life, there is no need to worry about your future, no need to run or jump into anything. Just keep moving forward, little by little, at your own pace. No matter how difficult things may appear, everything that “happens” in your life can function to help you learn what you must in order to become your best self. Trust your life. Love yourself. Be gentle with yourself. Everything has a deeper reason, moving you into the orbit of your true happiness. Take a deep breath. Relax. You are okay just as you are now, perfectly imperfect, as we all are. Just be. Be you. Be the best you that you can be.
I offer these 8 guiding questions to serve as a lighthouse for making wise decisions:
Is this action causing me to grow up and evolve, or to stagnate?
Is this behavior adding to my life force, or robbing me of energy?
Is this choice bringing long-term fulfillment, or short-term gratification?
Is this decision rooted in my wisdom, or my delusion?
Is this action one of self-love, or one of self-sabotage?
Is this behavior coming from my personal flow of power, or from my fear of going against the flow of others?
Is this choice propelling me forward to create a new and better future, or pulling me backward to relive the past?
Is this decision based in confidence and independence, or insecurity and loneliness?
As you ask yourself these questions, and continue to increase your happiness, you will go to every exciting place you wish, you will create healthier relationships, and you will be able to obtain every valuable thing you desire, because the ingredients for everything you want in life are already inside your own heart – you must simply open it up. When you do, you’ll be able to attract the good fortune you envision.
Life is a like a mirror of the soul, perfectly reflecting back to you all that is within yourself. You decide. You decide everything, and life responds. You are only limited by the progress you make in caring for yourself, mastering your own mind, and opening your heart. You don’t ever need to worry about anything outside yourself controlling your destiny. No one outside yourself holds anything you need for you to become truly happy. Everything necessary is within you. When you come to see that, you will know absolute freedom.
When we continue to work on ourselves each day, little by little, we can grow to become a pillar of goodness in society, of service to others, and compassionately help others to manifest their own wisdom and joy. As in a recurring dream of mine, in which mandara blossoms float gently down from the heavens: may blessings rain down upon you like fragrant flower petals gracefully falling from the sky.
