A Bountiful Moment:

Whatever happens to me today will prove to be a beautiful blessing.

Daily Thought: Going with the flow sometimes takes effort. We are all creatures of habit and have a need to control. We feel safe and comfortable when things stay the same. But going with the flow of the day can provide a view of opportunities that are present and missed. Don’t cloud your daily thinking with constant struggle to have things the same. Sometimes you need to take a step back, release control, and just let good things happen.

Daily Practice: Change your habits today. Do something that is out of your normal schedule. Go home from work a different way, skip watching the news or some other program that is a habit. While you are doing that look at all the new things that are different from the norm. Appreciate and enjoy them.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Inner Journey: Why? Why? Why?
“As long as one keeps searching, the answers come.”
— Joan Baez

Asking ourselves ‘why?’ helps us delve deeply into our main motives — why we do what we do. This process helps us go deeper into our reasoning, habits and unconscious beliefs. Once we become aware of our underlying motives, we can choose to change them, if we wish.

Regularly ask yourself, ‘Why am I…?’ Listen closely for the answer that surfaces in your mind, and write it down. Now look at your answer and ask why again. Continue with this process to reach the true source of your motivation.

“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else….”
— Archibald Alexander

A Note from the Universe

You know,  it’s only after umpteen lifetimes, a dramatic ascension into peak vibrational levels of light and awareness, and only after “the way” has been meticulously prepared and tests have been passed that a soul can even hope for the kind of life you’re now living.

You “hot dog.”

MNN: 10 Book towns where literature is alive and well

Hay-on-Wye

Hay-on-Wye was the original “book town.” Today it’s still filled with bookstores, many selling used materials and specializing in certain subjects. Some retailers have expanded to include antiques and collectibles on their shelves as well. The book town movement was started in the 1960s by Hay resident Richard Booth, who had the idea to promote his economically struggling town as a destination for book lovers and collectors.
