Wisdom from Pam Grout

Be recklessly generous and relentlessly kind.

Therapists tell us that until we root out the deep, dark recesses of our unconscious minds, it’s impossible to reach self-fulfillment. A fully-realized person, they insist, must dig for hidden secrets that make him feel unworthy, must dive for past cruelties inflicted by her parents.

But what I want to know is, “While we were down there with flashlights, why didn’t we look for our souls?”

We’ve spent 20 years excavating the darkness, when right under the next rock is a world of wonder and brilliance. Yes, I’m talking about our spiritual side, that transcendent force at the center of our very being. This light (again, just waiting for our discovery) is the most potent force in the universe. It’s Spiderman, Superman and Oprah all rolled into one.

Love is the cosmic electricity, the condition that allows us to dream of bigger playing fields. The voice that constantly whispers, “You could be more.”

Most of us have a tendency to ignore that voice. We listen instead to the voice that says, “This is all there is.” We get so preoccupied with things that don’t matter that we lose sight of things that do….Continue reading at InspireMeToday.com.

Good vs. evil manifests equally in the circle of life ... always has, always will. Look in the mirror of your soul and, if you're not happy with what you see, (a product of your choices). it-s time for change, you have the power -- we all do!

a non denominational saint on the importance of being kind (good service):

"Success and divine abundance follow the law of service and generosity. Those who seek prosperity only for themselves are either bound to be poor for some time, or to suffer from mental inharmony. But those who think of others and work for group prosperity find that cosmic forces support and guide them in their efforts to achieve success. The law of magnetism works in their favor."
