- How does my mission in life relate to universal purpose?
- What are my primordial priorities based on eternal values?
- In what ways do I fulfill my social responsibilities, my unique contribution for the good of the whole?
- How can I best employ my special talents for the fulfillment of my mission?
This beautiful day, I would like to invite you to ponder the transcendental value of listening to the wisdom that comes from within.
“The still small voice is to be taken to a higher
plane and to be found the prompting of divine realization.”

I would like to share with you some related affirmations, as a springboard to create positive statements that are significant at this stage of your own inner process:
- In the light of the eternal present my outer being is reborn within me.
- I radiate the depths of my inner understanding.
- The indwelling Presence manifests here and now.
- How am I contributing to the well–being of others in the present?
- How can I better use my special talents?
- What fields of potentially broader service to society would I like to explore?
Joyful thoughts as we embrace 2012!!!
- Look at the patterns that emerge. Are your days balanced?
- Are there some things you can delegate, eliminate, or otherwise simplify?
- Is there anything missing from your life?
- Can you make room for it by scaling down your involvement in other areas?
- Think of yourself as an architect designing a beautiful living structure.
Peace Pilgrim, a lady who walked a pilgrimage in the United States and parts of Canada and Mexico for 28 years, also wrote a few poems and songs. My very favorite song of Peace is called, “I Am”. It is a joy to share with you today a version recently posted on YouTube, sung by Kathy Miller, who was a member of the Friends of Peace Pilgrim and made her transition to spirit in 2006. This song is with images of Peace.
This day I would like to share with you, dear friends around the world, my comments to a person who wrote for advice. She said, “Thanks for your words of inspiration. I'm going through a difficult time right now. I dropped out of a meaningful group. I'm changing so much and so fast I need time by myself to figure things out. I feel like I turned myself inside out. I made a complete circle, and feel like I am right back were I started. Although, I'm a totally different person now. What's next? All I can do is pray for guidance. Thanks again.”
My comments to her: “Taking time for ourselves can be a grand opportunity for healing. There are times for reaching out to others and times when inward contemplation will bring the highest rewards. You are very close to your inner being in a deep desire to experience inner peace and I trust your recent decision is the best for you and all. When we feel we have gone through a whole circle I invite you to consider the possibility that we are moving in a spiral … each cycle being wider than the previous one and we become a different person continuously, ever with more experience and understanding. What is next? Perhaps this is a time to let go and flow with the call of your inner being. Patience is important. My suggestion would be to take whatever time may be needed, knowing that answers will evolve at the right moment. I see you are flowing with life.”
One of my recent mottos has been, “Trust. Be. Rejoice.”
A book I have been recommending for years is “The Tao of Inner Peace” by Dianne Dreher. I find her approach most practical as we strive to embrace a state of dynamic harmony within ourselves. One of her suggestions is to find a meaningful challenge that makes any life an adventure.
Here are some of her suggestions in such exploration:
- Can you see each day as a chance to practice what you believe?
- Can you do something each day to renew your sense of challenge?
- Could you benefit from more conscious discipline in following your goals?
Close your eyes and see yourself doing these things, living with greater joy, energy and adventure. How do you feel?
