"It's the colorful patchwork that makes a wonderful quilt. In the case of faith, it's the same. Our faith pattern is not always the same. In different emotional states, we experience different degrees of faith just like the different colors of the patches- some bright, some dull. But keep on doing the patchwork. Once done, you can see the journey of your faith and your inner world - you will be amazed."

"Fear can only be of the past or future, which does not exist."
A Course in Miracles --- Submitted by S. Heighwaya --- United Kingdom
To me this sums up the whole importance of living in the HereNowEternalPresentMoment. It's all there is. Eckhart Tolle wrote a whole book on the subject and Osho said that "the present moment is the Only door into existence". It seems that all our fears, all the negativity, all the 'problems', all the deep conditioning, guilt etc. is stored in our minds. Our minds are never still and we're constantly remembering the past and projecting it into the future, constantly back and forth like a pendulum. This is what causes ALL misery. If we can somehow realize that we are not our minds, that our mind is just a tool there to be used, that our "TrueSelf-RealNature-OriginalFace" is underneath, behind, silently watching...aware...witnessing, then we can understand that, as it also says in A Course in Miracles, "I can choose peace instead of this".

Your Hand

I profess
My love
For all to see
I ask
For your hand
In matrimony

I kneel before you
On one knee
Will you signify
A lifetime
With me

And if you
Convey
What my heart
Has dreamed
I will love you
With every breath
I breathe

MY LADIES

You are the partner, my dad's girl
You are my shoulder, my hero
You are my friend, my advisor
And you are... of course my mother

You are my Grammy, now and then
My Lolo's woman forever
You gave birth and life to our girl
Without you we're not together
Both of you are precious for us

Thanks to God from heaven above
'Coz he gave both of you to us
Thanks be to almighty God...
Thanks

"The path we travel is laden with peaks and valleys. The secret is to not dwell upon the depth of the canyon, nor the steepness of the ascent, but to reflect upon the view from the top, once we arrive."

At God's footstool, to confess,
A poor soul knelt and bowed his head.
"I failed," he cried. The master said,
"Thou didst thy best. That is success."
