" Why wait for Heaven? Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes. The light is in them now. Enlightenment is but a recognition, not a change at all."
-A Course in Miracles Lesson 188
"In my deepest, darkest moments, what really got me through was a prayer. Sometimes my prayer was 'Help me.' Sometimes a prayer was 'Thank you.' What I've discovered is that intimate connection and communication with my creator will always get me through because I know my support, my help, is just a prayer away."
- by Iyanla Vanzant.
Sometimes you don't have the words and "Thank You" or "Help Me" is all that will come.
Whether your prayer is long or short.
It doesn't matter.
Believe in it.
Good knows what it in you heart.
You have been heard!
"It's against every one of my Natural Instincts, which is to stay the fuck home! It's hard stand up. It's hard! I don't want to do it. I want to be home. I want to read and garden and load my dishwasher. It's embarrassing and it's terrifying to put the Target on your forehead and it sets you up for all sorts of attacks. And the only way you can do it is to feel you have to. You have to. You don't have an option. You have to! Stand up! Speak up! Act up!"
"You have been offered "the gift of crisis". As Kathleen Norris reminds us, the Greek root of the word crisis is "to sift", as in, to shake out the excesses and leave only what's important. That's what crises do. They skae things up until we are forced to hold on to only what matters most. The rest falls away."
-Glennon Doyle Melton
A Prayer for you by Mastin Kipp.
To beautiful not to share.
May these words inspire and fill you heart with love today.
May you dedicate your life to taking small baby steps each day.

May you remember that it is in taking new action that your life will change and that no matter what's happened in the past, your future is based on where you focus your attention now.
May you feel the support that is all around you.
May you accept the support that is all around you.
May you value yourself enough to ask for what you need.
May you value yourself enough to figure out what you need if you doesn't know what you need.
May you know that as you ask for what you need, that you will be supported in new and abundant ways.
May you take new, imperfect and courageous action today.
May you have the faith to know that as you take this new imperfect and courageous action that life will reward you in your faith.
May you know that what you really want has been deliveratly placed out of your reach so that you can become the person it takes to acheive your heart's desire.
May you know that all the resources that you need are at your feet.... all you have to do is open up and allow all that is good in.

Send them signs of confirmation that they are on the right path.
teach me how to trust
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my Sacred Space
and love beyond my fear,
and thus Walk in Balance
with the passing of each glorious Sun.
