My Favorite Bits of Wisdom…

On Living Your Dreams

It begins with an act of courage. Most people lead unsatisfactory lives because they don't dare to dream of an expansive, fulfilled, creative life. Most of us are filled with fears, and our fears and anxieties overwhelm our vulnerable little dreams.

This moment is all we have, and we can, in this moment, create some seriously effective magic, if we wish – if we dare to dream.

On the Power of Words

An affirmation, a mantra, a prayer, programs your limitless subconscious mind. It can affect every are of your life, including every relationship you have. "Every day, in every way, the light and life within me are working miracles in my life and in the world."

On Intimate and Family Relationships

Imagine wonderful partnerships with those we love, where we support each other completely and love each other deeply, every moment of our lives.

Take a good, honest look at your intimate and family relationships. Are they successful? Pleasurable? Generally happy and fulfilling? Is there respect for everyone? That's the basic key to successful relationships: respect. 

What is the purpose of a family? To protect and support each one of us, to be in partnership together, to encourage each other to be happy and healthy, and to help us all fulfill our highest dreams.

On Your Dreams

Our thought has to become focused on a single, powerful idea. Keep coming back to your focused thought. Your focus creates your reality.

The greater our dreams, the more doubts and fear arise.  In order to create something, our emotions have to become focused as well as our thought.

And the greatest emotion – the emotion that is the most powerful in its ability to focus our thoughts and dreams – is the emotion of love.

Focus on your dreams with love, and your dreams will soon become manifest. Before long, you will be living in a world that was only an insubstantial dream a few  years before.

A World That Works for All

Let's dream of a world where everyone is respected and granted the basic human rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Let's dream of a world where everyone is housed and fed and educated; let's dream of a world where we are encouraged to dream to live the life of our dreams.

We all have a Great Work ahead of us: the work of healing ourselves and our planet, creating a global self-sustaining system that supports life for all, for generations after generations, and helps everyone move up the pyramid of human consciousness into the realms of higher education and self-actualization.

I'm all for that Marc! Count me in!

    What timing with an inspirational book — my husband and I are focusing on changing our life plan (aka “careers”) and following our passion…. breaking free of the corporate “safe” world.
    I would love to be able to read and reference this book, gleaning its pearls of wisdom. Is the drawing still available? If so, please count me in.
    Thank you!
