In the movie Risen, Peter says something to the effect of... "Now that I have learned how to help people properly, how can I do anything else?"... and he said it with the most genuine smile on his face. I feel the same way... every time I help someone, I am reminded that giving freely of myself to another, feels better than anything else that I have ever experienced. Once I felt the pure bliss that comes only from giving unconditional love... there was no turning back. The goal for today: give love... genuinely, frequently & freely! Have a great day everybody!

"You can't transmit something you haven't got" ~ Anon. This Principle applies to the individual, the nation & the world... as do all of the Principles I write about. Selfishness can never lead to world peace. If we keep taking from our homes, our nations & our world... unity is destroyed & we ALL lose. The reason that the human race is having so many problems right now is because we are trying to fix things from the top... down. We are waiting for world leaders to fix it... when it absolutely MUST get fixed in the individual first. The goal for today: stop waiting for happiness, peace & freedom to rain down on us from above; we must find it inside first... & then we can spread it around…

Open-mindedness is a requirement of learning... learning is a requirement of problem solving... problem solving is a requirement of happiness. At 32 years old, my life was saved by 3 things that I was previously too close-minded to believe in. Despair finally opened my mind... & thank God it did, or I would most certainly be dead today. Now, not only am I still alive... but I'm experiencing a level of Life, Love & Abundance, that I previously did not believe was possible. The goal for today: keep an open mind... because it is an essential requirement to all of our happiness, peace & freedom! Have a great day everybody!
I like the saying "The only time you should look down on anyone is when you are helping them up." That's what happened to me & that's what I try to do for others. In my time of need, a friend who had turned their life around, extended their hand & helped lift me up out of my troubles. Now I spend my time paying that gift forward to others... & helping others is the one thing that is guaranteed above all else, to keep me from slipping back into that trouble. The goal for today: help somebody, in whatever way I can... so we can all rise above our troubles together! Have a great day everybody!

Bill Wilson, a co-founder of AA, tried to help a lot of people get sober & it didn't work. One day, when he was just about to throw in the towel, he said to his wife "I give up! This isn't working... none of these guys are staying sober"... his wife replied "But you are Bill." Here we are... 83 years later & that statement by Lois Wilson is still saving lives. The person receiving help may or may not get & stay well... but the person giving help will ALWAYS triumph, over any & all difficulties. The goal for today: don't forget this Master Law of Life... giving is far more powerful than getting! Have a great day everybody!
My beautiful fiancée suggested that I write about Love on Valentine's Day... so I decided to tell you how I Love her. Most of my life I would have believed that it was her job to make me feel loved... but now I know what Love is really about. Love is something you give... & she makes giving easy! Her beautiful eyes, her beautiful mind... & her giant heart make me want to give her all the Love that God has given me! It is easy to give Love to such a beautiful soul! The goal for today: know that our significant others are the opportunity God gives us to demonstrate the Love that He has filled our hearts with! Have a great day everybody!
