Daily Good: One Love

At five minutes to midnight on June 14, 2018, about 800 people waited to enter Jerusalem’s Tower of David Museum. Jews, Muslims and Christians, young and old, most of them strangers to one another, they were forgoing a night’s sleep for the chance to sing Bob Marley’s “One Love” in three languages and three-part harmony as a show of unity from Israel. { read more }

Inner Journey:

GETTING DOWN TO ESSENTIALS

“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”
— Lin Yutang

Do you feel a desire to simplify your life?

If you say ‘yes,’ then set an intention to reduce the demands, stimuli, interruptions and busyness in your life. We each have the power to do this – we simply have to begin to say ‘no’ to those activities that don’t directly serve what we want for our lives.

Everyone of this planet deserves to have some free time to think, relax and have fun. If you long for this, begin now to clear your plate and allow a new level of experience to happen in your life. Take charge. Eliminate time wasters. Make some decisions about what matters to you.

“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”
— Hans Hofmann

Confidence

“With self-confidence fulfilled,
You’ll find that folk have confidence in you.”

-Goethe (1749-1832)

As an audience, we are attracted to confidence, because we would like to exude that ourselves! We have confidence in people who are self-confident. It shows strength, it shows fortitude and determination. But mostly, it shows an inner resolve that comes from knowing the true self.

-Lissa Coffey
