The Manner Of Giving

The manner of giving is worth more than the gift. Anything offered can be enhanced by the spirit of the giver. Give because you want to touch someone. Put your creative twist on every gift so the receiver knows they have a special place in your heart.

The True Value Of Time

Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination; never put off till tomorrow what can be done today. Procrastination causes depression because you live in a state of anxiety, dread and guilt. All time is of equal value. Sunday night, Wednesday morning. An hour is an hour whether you waste it or use it cleverly. When you put these moments to good use, you value yourself and feel good.

If You Want Something To Last Forever

Updated: October 3, 2017

If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don’t expose it to the elements. You don’t make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.

You Cannot Escape The Results Of Your Thoughts

Updated: October 3, 2017

As you think, you travel. As you love, you attract. You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. You cannot escape the results of your thoughts; but you can endure and learn, accept and be glad. You will realize the vision of your heart, not the idle wish. You will gravitate toward that which you secretly most love. Into your hands will be placed the exact result of your thoughts; you will receive that which you earn; no more, no less. Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain, or rise with your thoughts, your vision — your ideal.

Love Is Valuing The Joy And Pain Of Another Being

Updated: October 3, 2017

Love is valuing the joy and pain of another being like we value our own. We instinctively seek our own happiness and take action to relieve our own discomfort; love makes us instinctively do the same for others.

Love is not merely service (action) nor is it merely delight in the beloved (infatuation), though it can express itself in both of these. Loving someone means being able to choose what is best for them over what is best for us. Desire and possessiveness are false love because in both the focus is on us — our needs and wants.
