How aware are you?
“The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention.”
— Julie Cameron
How aware are you of:
– your senses?
– your body — its condition, needs and wisdom?
– your fears?
– your defences – how you hide what you’re really feeling?
– your self talk?
– your beliefs and their power to create your reality?
– your passions?
– your purpose?
Go on a treasure hunt to discover your authentic self and the truth of life in and around you!
“Relative to the level of awareness that is possible for us, our ordinary state of consciousness is as far from a direct experience of reality as sleep is from waking consciousness.”
— Don Richard Riso & Russ Hudson

“Speak, move, act in peace, as if you were in prayer. In truth, this is prayer.”
-Francis de S. Fenelon (1651-1715), Fr. archbishop
It is wonderful to think of peace as a prayer. Peace is one of those amazing things that grows when it is out in the light. Share peace, distribute it freely, be generous with your portions and there will be lots more to go around!
