Not all large decisions can be well made by simply listing the pros and cons of a given situation, helpful and necessary as this process is. We cannot always depend on what seems to us to be logical. When there is doubt about our logic, we wait upon God and listen for the voice of intuition. If, in meditation, that voice is persistent enough, we may well gain sufficient confidence to act upon that, rather than upon logic.

I Want

The problem is not that we too rarely fulfill our desires, but that we so often do, and are still left wanting.

Play Your Hand

When the cards are dealt and you pick up your hand ... there's nothing you can do except to play it out for whatever it may be worth. And the way you play your hand is free will.

Negative Thinking

Negative thinking produces negative ways and weak living. It undermines our morals so that we develop a "what's the difference" attitude. But a positive faith in God, as each of us understands Him, gives strength to the body and courage to the soul.

The Past

... we need to view our past from the perspective of everything that we've ever done or not done being over. We can't undo or redo it -- we have the choice to look back at the past either through eyes clouded by ego judgments or through an inspired point of view. We can forgive ourselves or we can shame ourselves.
(Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Inspiration, p. 89)

It takes something to get married: nerve, hope, a strong desire to make a certain statement -- and it takes something to stay married: more hope, determination, a sense of humor, and needs that are best met by being in a pair.

In a soulful relationship ... the partners know that we are all individuals, with our own kind of richness that may not be fully and plainly revealed in daily life, and that an intimate relationship demands a courageous and openhearted acknowledgement of differences.

One of the things that's great about failure is, it's never as bad as you think it's going to be. You think it's going to be the end of the world, and it's really not.

Challenge Yourself

If you have an impulse to do something, why not do it? It might be just the journey you've always needed.
