Why Light a Candle?

Better to light a candle than curse the darkness.Proverb


The problem with complaining and negativity is simple. It forces us to spend time at the level of the problem, at a lower frequency and often leaves us feeling sorry for our selves. Let’s seek the light instead, heck let’s create some!

create light

How can we create light in any given situation? Lets become aware of what we’re thinking about the situation. If our analysis is turning negative, we should note how the thinking is affecting us in the moment. Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t analyze and critique when necessary. Lets ensure that the thought spiral isn’t taking us down with it. Instead we can bring ‘light’ to the situation or person by reminding ourselves that thoughts matter. We control the vibrations we dwell in… Let’s step back and view (shine a light) from a ‘higher’ vantage point.

Daily Affirmation: Today I bring light to each person and situation.

What’s The Greatest Wealth?

Contentment is the greatest wealth.The Urantia Papers


  • How do we define success for ourselves?

  • What is true wealth?

  • How much is enough?

  • What do we truly ‘need’?

  • What do we ultimately seek?


The very source of it all, the fountain of truth, the satisfaction of all our true desires, our eternal guide and our ultimate goal resides quietly within our hearts. It yearns to make contact, but often cannot because of the electro-chemical nature of our minds. It also does not because we don’t seek it. It never forces, but gently prods if we only listen. Stillness helps in making contact.

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM satisfied and thankful.

In Partnership With God

4.24 Who in all his work sees God, he in truth goes unto God: God is his worship, God is his offering…

4.39 He who has faith has wisdom…and he who finds wisdom, soon finds the peace supreme..The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 4)

it’s all god

The stuff that the universe is made of, comes from God. We come from God. When we keep that in mind, we can have God as our constant companion. It’s making this approach a habit that makes it very powerful.

faith leads to peace

When we consciously accept that God moves with us, we are guided, we are safe, we can now leave all outcomes to providence and we can slowly learn to let go… This faith helps us gain a certain peace, and that’s a goal we all seek.

Daily Affirmation: Today I see God in everything.

Do We Have Free Will?

God loves us and believes in us and has done and will do anything he can to help us, but he will not impose on our free agency.  – Marion D. Hanks Ensign

free will creatures

No one person can know God’s will for the Universe or for other individuals. It appears that God wanted us to be creatures with the power to choose. That means she will not force herself on us. Which in turn means that we must ask to receive guidance and anything else that supports God’s larger vision for everyone. Our ability to choose (and keep God at a distance) also helps explain the planet’s sad state.

ask to receive

If we go about thinking we have the answers, that we know what’ll satisfy and soothe us then that’s exactly what will play out. Such an approach doesn’t work. We stay as directionless and as dissatisfied as ever. Isn’t that right? So what to do?

Let’s involve God into our daily life. Ask for help, consult God often, even moment by moment, continue to have faith in all that’s happening and show patience for God’s plan as it unfurls in our lives.

Daily Affirmation: Today I walk with God.
