“As for me, I know nothing else but miracles,
Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,
Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky,
Or wade with naked feet along the beach just in the edge of the water,
Or stand under the trees in the woods,
Or talk by day with any one I love,
Or sleep in bed at night with any one I love,
Or watch honey bees busy around the hive of a summer forenoon…
Or the wonderfulness of the sundown,
Or of stars shining so quiet and bright,
Or the exquisite delicate thin curve of the new moon in spring…
What stranger miracles are there?”

THREE LEVELS OF PROSPERITY
“Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.”
— Woody Allen
To become more prosperous, we need to change on at least two levels. First, we must ensure our financial affairs are in order. We need an income that at least covers our expenses. And we need a foundation of habits, tools and skills so we achieve some financial stability in our day-to-day experience.
Second, we must become aware of the beliefs we hold around money and prosperity. If we unconsciously believe we are lacking in some way, then no matter what we do, we will unconsciously sabotage our own efforts to improve our finances.
And third, it’s helpful to understand the spiritual principles that govern our level of abundance. Once we know those principles, we can work effectively within them to attract abundance to us.
“If you’re prosperous in soul, you’ll be prosperous in whole.”
— Mark Victor Hansen
A Note from the Universe
It’s true the early bird gets the worm.
So does the late bird and the bird in-between. Because, by design, there are always more than enough worms.
In fact, the only bird that doesn’t get a worm is the bird that doesn’t go out to get one.
Oh, to be alive…
