And happy will our nature be,
When love is an unerring light,
And joy its own security.
William Wordsworth (1770-1850)

Beliefnet: Crystals For Happiness
We can all use a little more happy in our life. Since crystals are energy amplifiers, some of them work very hard to amplify our capacity for joy. The following are some of the best stones you can use to make you feel happier and more balanced.
3 Simple Exercises to Invite the Extraordinary Life
I can think of no greater encouragement than the self-evident Truth that there dwells in each of us the opportunity to explore and know the Extraordinary Life. The meaning of Extraordinary I wish to convey points to the immutable and inexhaustible source that is the secret center of each of us: a timeless resource open and available to anyone who would seek this Life that sits behind life as we know it.
A Bountiful Moment:
No-one is above you or below you. We are all equals.
Mark Silver Six Sufi Teachings.
Sometimes it is good to create the illusion that we are in competition with others. But in reality we are all equal. Everyone is provided with opportunities and everyone has a personal struggle they are going through. Knowing and understanding this presents you with the opportunity to behave as if you are able to achieve anything you set your mind to. There are no barriers to what you desire. There are only illusions that have been created holding you back.
What would you be doing if no-one told you differently? What mountain would you be climbing or what dream would you be chasing? Today tap into your childlike spirit of naiveti. Let your inner desires take you on an excursion. Donï¿½t think about what others would say or think. Just do what you have been hiding from the rest of the world. Let your true self shine.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos Pagan: The Other Side of the Hedge: The Future of Paganism
There is no doubt that we are in a time of change. The West, as a whole, is thrashing about like a teenager in the midst of hormonal angst. It’s not pretty, but it’s also not the end of the world. I continue to hold out hope that our seemingly never-ending drama is a sign of coming maturity. And I believe that Paganism is part of that maturing process.
QUESTION YOUR INTENTION
“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else ….”
— Archibald Alexander
Why are you doing what you are doing?
Throughout the day, continually ask yourself about your underlying motivation. Are you doing what you are doing for selfish, manipulative or fearful reasons, or in honest service? Maybe you will see that much of your activity lacks purpose. This is a great way to become more conscious.
Your intention and motives are fundamental to the results you receive. Set high intentions and your life will blossom.
“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
A Note from the Universe
When it comes to setting aside a little time each day to visualize look at it like this:
No matter how distracted you become or how confused you are about the process, the simple fact that you gave your dream this time and attention means you did it correctly, you did it long enough, and that by the time you open your eyes, already in the unseen, huge wheels have begun turning.
You think I’d make it hard?

One of the best ways to persuade others is with your ears – by listening to them.”
We have two ears, and one mouth. It’s easy for us to close our mouth, but unless we use earplugs or our hands, we can’t really close our ears. Isn’t that telling? We are meant to listen. We can learn so much just by being still and taking in the information that we are given. Everyone wants to be heard. Give the gift of listening.
