May each year be the best of your life.
High on harmony low on strife.
May wisdom and love accompany you each day
And from your highest principles may you never stray.
May any challenges leave you stronger
Doubts and regrets trouble you no longer.
By year’s end may you achieve your resolution’s goal
While enjoying the journey as a whole.
Tuesday, December 28, 2010
May you be blessed with a healthy mind and body.
May your memory be sharp as a tack
And sound ideas never lack.
May your mind the world shrewdly discern
Know when to calmly pay attention and when to raise concern.
May your physical body be equally smart
Adeptly protecting your flesh, digesting your food and beating your heart.
May you have the energy of a child of two
And your joints and muscles easily move for you.
May in every day you experience some small pleasure
And may your health be your greatest treasure.
Sunday, December 26, 2010
May you be blessed with flexibility in body, mind and spirit.
May your body bend and stretch easily and comfortably.
When things don’t go as planned, may you still feel calm and confident about being able to fulfill your larger goal. May you quickly be inspired with new ideas.May you find even better methods, routes, and solutions; ones that end up delighting you.
May you feel a confidence in your Creator, allowing life to unfold serendipitously. After praying or doing affirmations, may you trust the words “this or something even better now manifests in my life.”

Tuesday, December 7, 2010
Please don’t make the cashier bawl.
Frustrated customers too often take aim
On store employees place the blame.
Even if the wait is a mile
Try to extend a holiday smile.
Let “visions of sugarplums dance in your head"
And leave harsh words left unsaid.
To your fellow shoppers also be kind
And soon enough you will find
A spirit of kindness and brotherhood goes a long way
To help all around you remember the meaning of Christmas Day.
Monday, December 6, 2010

May you use the Spirit of Wisdom and Play to combine the old and new, East and West, familiar and unfamiliar into new forms in order to make the world better for yourself and others.

May God’s wisdom guide you today and always.
Saturday, December 4, 2010
Despite all the striving and stress that may appear around you, may you feel the Spirit of Serenity today.
May you know the tranquility that is found in quiet moments:
Watching a sailboat glide across calm waters on a sunny day or a butterfly glide on a gentle current,
Looking at the stars on a clear summer night,
Listening to the sound of a flute in the distance,
Gently folding your hands before grace is said.
Friday, December 3, 2010

Thursday, December 2, 2010
May you look around you with a childlike sense of wonder and see how objects and techniques came into being because someone decided that something could be done in a new way. They sensed a potential. They saw a need that they wanted to satisfy or a joy that could be created.
May you look at your own life and realize that you too have the potential to create something new, whether large or small. To begin, all you need to do is check in with your Inner Wisdom and ask “How can I bring good into the world today?”
Wednesday, December 1, 2010

May you have the courage to go where you feel Divinely guided, even though the path ahead doesn’t seem clear or when others around you cause you to doubt yourself.
May you have the courage to set big goals even if you have no guarantees of success.
May you have the courage to try new things, to grow, even when you feel silly at first or think you are too old/young, masculine/feminine, dignified, uncoordinated, or set in your ways.
When you feel frightened and don’t want to go on, may you find a Strength Within you that is greater than yourself.
Tuesday, November 30, 2010
And in simple things take delight.
May you feel within you shines the sun
And find your tasks are less work and more fun.
May it seem the universe conspires to make you smile
As if to prove all you do is worthwhile.
Sunday, November 28, 2010
For all the hustle and bustle have a reason.
If the center is wonder, beauty or delight
Make that the target you keep in your sight.
If closeness to family and friends is at the core
Plan on your schedule to give that them time more.
If connection with God is your holiday key
Make devotion and worship the priority.
May you release the need to make the season perfect
Instead give your physical and mental health respect.
However you choose to spend your days
May love and peace guide your ways.
Friday, November 26, 2010
In no shopping cart will I today presents stack,
Instead I’ll sleep a bit more in the sack,
Some neglected projects conscientiously attack,
My pre-Thanksgiving body work to get back.
In my choice of activities, I feel no lack.
Thursday, November 25, 2010
If a host, may your company be easy to please.
And when it’s all over, may everything have turned out okay.
Wednesday, November 24, 2010
I am grateful that I have an aunt who loves me and is fun to talk with on the phone.
I am grateful for …
- The assisted living staff that helps take care of my aunt and brought the card into her room,
- All the various postal workers who sold me the stamp, processed the card and drove it over a hundred miles, and finally delivered it,
- The clerk who sold me the card and the drugstore that still carries greeting cards despite us living in the age of texting and Facebook,
- The artist and writer who created the greeting card,
- The workers at the paper mill and printing company,
- And other assorted other people who helped me let my aunt know I am thinking of her this holiday.
Tuesday, November 23, 2010
Teach me, Divine Creator, how to hold a person tenderly in my consciousness. Help me to see that they are surrounded by your protection and infused by your power and strength. Help me to look with curiosity and awe at the unique path they have chosen for this lifetime. Help me to appreciate their talents and abilities, and yet see them as beings who are continuing to grow in the sun of your love. Help me to see that any cynicism I feel is only a misguided attempt to protect myself against my own vulnerability. Help me to see that we are all one, a part of your wonder.
Sunday, November 21, 2010
I love myself unconditionally, even the parts of me that have been hurt by disappointment or that don’t believe good things can happen. At the same time, I do not need to allow cynicism to control my thoughts and actions. I can give my attention and my energy to the part of me that believes "With God all things are possible." I can choose to look for little miracles, synchronicities, and coincidences. I can choose to seek out stories of people who have beaten the odds or defied the naysayers, despite poor economic conditions, disabilities, discrimination, poor health or other obstacles. I choose to risk looking the fool in exchange for the possibility of living a better life.
May you dance with the Spirit of Gratitude this week.
May you challenge yourself to find more and new things for which to be grateful.
May you look for opportunities to say a heartfelt thank, whether in person, in a letter, or just in your imagination.
When you buy or use something, may you enjoy making daisy chains of gratitude, feeling love for the clerk who sold you the item, the trucker who shipped the item, all the way to the laborer who harvested the plant or the person in the factory who sewed the garment.
If you are spending Thanksgiving with friends or family, may you allow the Divine to inspire your table prayer or toast.
May you let you body and mind know that you are grateful that they help you to live in this world.
May you feel gratitude for your Creator.
Friday, November 19, 2010
May you release your preconceived judgments about appearance and age
And instead truly see the beautiful, vibrant person that you are.
May you open yourself to happy surprises
And allow them to appear in your life
For the universe vibrates with possibilities.
May you know that you are gifted with talents and abilities
Which need to be given to the world.
May you have the courage to share them.
May you know that it is never too late to have what you yearn for
That with God all things are possible.
May you let yourself feel the love of God, family, and friends.
May you truly love yourself.
Thursday, November 18, 2010
Who share your heartfelt goals
Who in your struggles share
For your well being care.
May you know beyond a doubt you belong
Have a place to sing your unique song.
May you be part of a community of friends
Whose camaraderie and support knows no ends.

The Truth is simple but the Way of Man is hard. First you must learn to control your self. The rest follows. Blessed is he who knows himself and commands himself, for the world is his and love and happiness and peace walk with him wherever he goes.
Sunday, November 14, 2010
To oppose something is to maintain it....You must go somewhere else; you must have another goal; then you walk a different road.
Friday, November 12, 2010
Growl, snipe or yell
Or just plain give them hell.
Your button has been found
Your anger will not back down.
Common sense you find
Has just left your mind.
So you take a deep breath and count
So permanent damage will not mount.
You begin to make a new plan
Instead of raw emotion fan.
You may not be ready to smile
But sanity has returned for awhile.
Whether indoors or out
May you have no reason to pout.
May your coat and sweater
Help you feel comfortable in all weather.
Whether you sleep, work or play
May in perfect warmth you stay.
May the fire in your heart
Help you remember God’s child you art.
Wednesday, November 10, 2010
May you today and forever be Divinely inspired
And in stale, outworn ideas no longer be mired.
May you be led to thoughts outside the box
To help you any competition to outfox.
If you are caught in “woe is me,”
May shining possibilities you now see.
If you would like to better connect with clients, customers, or fans
May you find angels guiding your attention and hands.
May making mistakes no longer give you fright.
May you release criticisms that are trite.
May you feel courage to face the unknown
And act upon what you have been Divinely shown.
May your days have sparkle, glitter and shine
And inspiration ever fill your mind.
Tuesday, November 9, 2010
Sun friendly and kind.
I take pleasure in my errands
Walking to stores and library
Listening as an old man tells the postman
sad stories about World War II,
The postman healing his spirit with attention.
Pull on their leashes
A cat rolls on her back in the grass a block away
Birds feast on seed left in a yet uncleaned rain gutter.
Saturday, November 6, 2010
Enjoying extra sleep in the sack
Or devoting to an endeavor for time you lack.
May your body quickly get used to the change in the light
And to your mind may everything seem quite alright.
Friday, November 5, 2010
Dear God, I so easily get caught up in the drama of my life, my friends’ lives, politics, and even sometimes celebrities. Today, I take seriously the Prayer of Saint Francis and allow myself to be “an instrument of your peace.” As I go about my day, I choose to devote some time experiencing your love and healing surrounding the peoples of Haiti and Indonesia. I may visualize a white light filling the islands, angels holding hands as they surround the countries, or see them resting in the heart of my loving creator. I may choose to say an affirmation of peace, healing or divine order. I may choose to light a candle and say my own special prayer. I may choose to take some other action. Whatever I do, I know I am not alone. My thoughts and prayers join with those being said and felt by people all around the world. I believe there is power when two or more are gathered—even if only in spirit--in your name. I believe that we are your instruments helping to bring good to the peoples of Haiti and Indonesia.
As we pause and remember you today
May you know you are loved and cherished for you special way.
May in this coming year you continue to grow
Some new friends come to know
Additional good start to sow
Interesting places begin to go
Have unexpected joys make you glow.
May the coming year find you healthy, wealthy, and wise
And provide at least one big, happy surprise.
Thursday, November 4, 2010
So that those things that you truly need and most want you find.
May you choose those things that make you smile
Not just more projects from your “to do” pile.
May you find goals that help you grow
But are achievable you know.
After your goals you ultimately write
May working toward them bring you delight.

May you be gentle with yourself.
May you treat yourself with love and acceptance.
If the journey becomes dangerous may you be guided to those well equipped to help.
May you find within that which is good and beautiful, knowing that you are a beloved child of God.
Sunday, October 31, 2010
No matter who is in office, my thoughts still help create my reality.
This is a law, no different from gravity or any other universal principle.
I choose to think thoughts of love and of cooperation.
I choose to think thoughts of high employment and prosperity.
I choose to think thoughts of health for all people.
I choose to see people as basically intelligent and compassionate.
I choose to see a country that is flexibility and adaptability to a rapidly changing world.
I can not see all the ways that the future will unfold, so I let go and let God create what is for the highest good.
Friday, October 29, 2010
Here is a beautiful quote from Ernest Holmes:
When the dawn breaks and the shadows flee, when the hills are touched with the rosy glow of the sun’s first rays, I wake to the thought that I am one with all life. I lift mine eyes to the Eastern sky and sing with joy of one who beholds the Eternal Presence in everything.

May your pet soon be found safe and without harm.
May you soon be snuggling and cuddling together in the warm.
May you have many more years of laughter,
Many more years of fun.
May you have many more years of playing together
Basking in the gentle sun.
Tuesday, October 26, 2010
Wherever you may be
Whenever you may roam or dwell
May the weather be your friend.
May the breezes be gentle,
Lightly kissing your face
With warmth or with cool
Depending upon the season.
May the snow fall softly,
Giving beauty to your world,
Providing protection for plant and animal,
Sending giggles to children,
Supplying sport to old and young alike.
May the rain fall kindly.
Slowly filling lake and river,
Providing life to critter and human,
Tree and flower.
May the sun shine tenderly,
Melting winter snow and ice,
Coaxing plants to grow and bloom,
Relieving cold and damp,
Revealing the beauty of nature.
Whatever the clouds or clear may send your way,
May God’s love enfold you as you go about your day.

May you be both gentle and firm with yourself.
May you have compassionate for the parts of yourself that are afraid of failure or demand perfection; that dislike boring, dirty or unpleasant tasks; that are fearful of difficulty or an uncertain outcome; or that conjure up upsetting memories; but may you give those parts little influence in directing your actions.
May you effortlessly find the part of yourself that is disciplined and that feels satisfaction in the completion of a task.
May you begin without much fuss or bother.
May you find some unexpected joy or reward in the doing.
May your task be much easier and completed quicker than you expected.
Lastly, may you feel relief in the task now well done.
Wednesday, October 20, 2010
May you know in your core that you were created on purpose, that your gender, race, sexual orientation, and physical characteristics were intentionally created by the Divine because they are needed in the world at this point in time.
May you day by day play your unique part, contributing to the wonderful symphony of life.
May every day you find some joy and also bring a little joy into the world around you.

I now release all sadness and allow God’s comfort to envelop me.
Divine perfection fills every cell of my body and governs every organ.
My heart is whole and strong.
It beats at the perfect rate, in the perfect rhythm.
Blood flows easily through my body at the perfect pressure.
My blood vessels provide clear passage and are flexible channels.
I feel loved and wanted by God and by my fellow beings.
Sunday, October 17, 2010
Saturday, October 16, 2010
May I truly listen without judgment to each person’s unique cadence.
May I hear the deeper meaning that lies beneath the words that are spoken and the tiny gestures that are made.
May I sense the feelings behind the speech and actions.
May I be aware of the beliefs that drive the rhythm of each person’s life.
May I see the beauty in each soul that I meet and allow myself to be truly blessed by their presence.
Friday, October 15, 2010
May you be safe.
May you be protected by forces both human and Divine.
May you find your own power, knowing that it comes in many forms.
May you be surrounded by people who value you just as you are.
May your days be filled with friends who share your interests, care about you, and help you to laugh.
May this time of pain soon be a distant memory.

May the rustling of the leaves today remind you that God continually speaks to you and there is always an answer to every problem you may have.
May the warmth of this day remind you that you are always enfolded in God’s protection.
Friday, October 1, 2010
I can’t pretend to know what it like to die,
But I do know I want to bless you with all my heart.
May you feel the love of all us praying for you today.
May you be aware of the gratitude we send to you
For your friendship, your wisdom, your tenacity,
And for so many other contributions you have made to our lives.
We are better because of knowing you.
May your transition be gentle and peaceful.
May the angels you loved so much in life
Now guide you to the other side.
May you be met by friends and family who have gone before.
May happy reunions await you.
May you be enfolded in God’s light and love now
And forever more.
Wednesday, September 29, 2010
May wisdom sparkle from the heavens, like the sun softly dancing
On the ripples of a gently moving lake.
May you be given courage and tenacity to accomplish those tasks
Which are for your highest good.
May you be surrounded with protection from both the seen
And unseen realms.
May you be able to transform your fear, anger, and hurt
Into that which eventually brings healing and joy.
May you know that God’s love is everywhere and in everything
And God is with you now.
Sunday, September 26, 2010
Dear God, many times we find ourselves looking toward the past or the future, particularly when we are confronted with something in the present that we would rather not face. Help us to know that you are always with us, especially in the present, and that we are safe. In this moment you are our health and the health of our loved ones. You are guiding us in this moment. You are now and always our strength and our joy. For this and more, we give thanks. A-men
Saturday, September 25, 2010
Now is my moment of power. Now is the moment I choose to withdraw my attention from any thoughts that I may have that upset me or make me feel weak. Now is the moment I choose to quiet my mind and center my awareness on God within me. Now is the moment I choose to focus on Divine Order, health, guidance and joy. Now is the moment I choose to be grateful for all that God has given me and all that God will give me in the days to come.
Friday, September 24, 2010
God, I am willing to listen today. Help me to get all the preconceived notions out of my head about the way things should be and to be fully open to Divine inspiration. God, I am willing to love today. My job is not to focus my attention on why people are in my life but rather to be a clear channel for your love. My job is to see the beauty, wisdom, and the good in each person I encounter. God, I am willing to be present today. Help me to hold each moment as sacred and to perform to the best of my ability the task that is before me. God, I am willing to know joy today. Help me to have fun and to have passion for everything I do.

The blessings of found objects to you
May you quickly find
The object you now hold in your mind.
May you soon hold it in your hand
And find its revelation grand.
Once you discover it, may you feel
Renewed gratitude in your heart.
And when you next need it
To its location be smart.
Tuesday, September 21, 2010
As you did not limit yourself in your love,
Do not limit yourself in your grief.
May you feel the universe enfold you in protection,
So you may feel safe to let down your tears,
Allowing your sorrow to flow through you,
Releasing it to create an emptiness,
Where healing may begin to grow.
May you find yourself supported by friends,
Who understand the legitimacy of grief when losing a furry friend.
May you be filled with the wisdom
That you were a good companion and that your love mattered.
Finally, may you be left with the memories
Of all the good times you shared.
Thursday, September 2, 2010
I dryly ponder Divine Grace.
Out of key groceries
I had contemplated the radar images
Green blobs a hundred miles away
North, south, west
Zoom in, zoom out
Adjust opacity to a hundred percent
Satisfied, I left umbrellaless
For my three mile trip.
Halfway to the store
I realized I forgot
My neatly bulleted
Organized by aisle
Took advantage of sales
A light mist cooled my face
A stack of grocery ads by the door
The Spirit of my list
Dancing in my memory
My cart filled
Light enough to carry
Full enough to make the trip
I heard the head cashier yell
I’d never make a poker player
She looked at me concerned.
“Maybe you can wait it out”
I remembered I forgot butter.
Coupons, discount card
A bagger appeared behind my elbow
Gently packing my purchases
Into the cloth bags.
The rain was soft
Stopping as I reached the doors.
Saturday, August 28, 2010
Now arrived today.
I did not recognize her at first.
In the distance I saw a faint figure,
Patiently waiting for her luggage by the carousel,
Methodically lifting suitcase after suitcase off the belt.
All I could think about was this stranger’s luggage fee.
But getting closer, she began to look vaguely familiar to me,
Not quite what I expected from our decades of letters
Or years of blog entries.
But yes, this was indeed Now.
How, I asked myself, do we begin this new conversation?

Hitherto we have taken forms and conditions as the starting point of our thought and inferred that they are the causes of mental states; now we have learnt that the true order of the creative process is exactly the reverse, and that thought and feeling are the causes, and forms and conditions the effects.Thomas Troward, The Dore Lectures

Dear God, thank you for the lives of the men and women who died defending this country. Thank you for the lives of those who fought and came back alive. I especially thank you for the many years I had with my uncles, all the laughter and the lessons. Also thank you for all the men and women who continue to risk their lives for this country.

…This woman moved by some private sorrow as much as by the words being spoken, cried almost silently, unobserved by others, apart from Mma Ramotswe, who stretched out her hand and laid it on her shoulder. Do not cry, Mma, she began to whisper, but changed he words even as she uttered them, and said quietly, yes, you can cry, Mma. We should not tell people not to weep—we do it because of our sympathy for them—but we should really tell them that their tears are justified and entirely right.Alexander McCall Smith, The Double Comfort Safari Club

Instead of focusing on blame, help me to focus on what I can do in this crisis. Please guide BP, the US Government, and all the scientists, engineers, military personnel and others involved in helping to solve this problem. Please protect the waters and land of Mother Earth. Watch over the animals and plants that are so vulnerable. Watch over the fishermen and all others whose livelihoods are dependent upon the water. Lastly guide us all so that we can change our lives to be in greater harmony with the greater whole.

Children of Planet Earth hear the Call.
This year it is Cool to be Green.
As part of the Solution we want to be seen.
Recycle our paper, bottles and cans.
Of Repurposing we have become fans.
Dozens of Choices we make each day,
Affecting whether Life will become extinct or Stay.
We realize WE each have to do our part.
To Future Generations we now give our Heart.

For those who practice the Presence of God and identify themselves with the Eternal, the best is always yet to be, for they travel the pathway of Infinite Enlargement. They become like that on which their minds function. Their polarization is changed from man-limited to God limitless.

Dear God, I know I am mentally and emotionally conflicted about money and a career. I turn the conflict over to you as my source, knowing that your love and wisdom can instantly bring resolution to the problem and peace and prosperity to my world.

Dear God, while I believe in the Power of Love, sometimes I find loving difficult. Help me to send love to people when it would be easier for me to feel resentment or anger. Help me to love myself in those moments when I feel frustrated or not good enough. Help me to send love to the government or businesses when I am tempted to send thoughts of condemnation. Help me to love the world even when I may be feeling powerless. Help me to know that you always love me. Help me to know that my thoughts of Love really do create positive changes in my world. Amen
