Relying on our Own Strength 

When we rely on ourselves, we may find ourselves cautious or afraid.
When we rely on others, we may find ourselves doubtful and distrusting.
When we rely on Source, we experience the certainty of our faith.

We make errors and learn.
We make ignorant choices and choose again.
We have limited information and limiting beliefs.
We perceive through filters of our history, beliefs and level of understanding.
We alone, with no support, are limited.

Others may advise us falsely and need our forgiveness.
Others may deceive for their own selfish interests.
Others may be limited by their life experiences, education and defensive or arrogant attitudes.
Others, even well-meaning, may err in their choices for us.

There is a Power and a Presence greater than all we see and know.
Source, Spirit, Higher Power and God, the Infinite and All Mighty, knows all.
God is the source of All Good, All Wisdom, All Power and All Love.
Relying on this ever present Source and Resource is trustworthy, dependable and True.

How do we know what to choose?
How do we tell where to go and what to do?
How can we discern what is wise and holy and helpful?
How can we live in alignment with Divine Will for the Highest Good of All?

Listen within and follow.
Quiet our minds in meditation.
Find the silent space of Peace within and ask.
When the answer is heard, felt, seen or known, be grateful.

Often we listen and do not hear.
Often we hear and do not obey.
Often we obey and do not trust.
Often we trust and do not give thanks.

Listen in the silence.
Write what you hear and feel, see and know.
Your mind may play tricks and erase the Highest Answer.
The Voice of Love and Peace, Joy and Ease is the Voice of God.

Everyone can hear.
Everyone can receive Higher Guidance.
Everyone can know the Way.
Everyone can find the Path to Happiness and Inner Peace.

My Path is to Love and to Listen,

Our greatest fear
is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light,
not our darkness,
that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
“Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented and fabulous?”
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that others won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some of us,
it is in everyone,
and as we let our own light shine
we unconsciously give other people permission
to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear
our presence automatically liberates others.
