May the warm winds of heaven blow softly on your home,
And the Great Spirit, bless all who enter there.
May your moccasins make happy tracks
In many snows, and may the rainbow
Always touch your shoulder

"Surrender, the active process of letting-go, clears the way for acts of divinity. Relinquishment is necessary before something wondrous can happen."
Lynne Forrest --- Submitted by Simon Heighwaya --- United Kingdom
The most beautiful thing about surrendering is that it's not even something you have to do. It's just a lot of things you decide to stop doing! Once we see how much energy and effort we waste on clinging, fighting, controlling, forcing, resisting, pushing and pulling and decide that all of this just gets us nothing but misery, it really isn't that difficult to stop doing it. To just let-go a bit, to surrender... Eckhart Tolle says "surrender is the simple but profound wisdom of yielding to, rather than opposing, the flow of life". Love, Life, God, Nature and Destiny are all forces infinitely wiser and more powerful than any individual-ego and so to fight against or to resist is ultimately pointless, you can't win. So if you can't beat them join them - and the only way to do this is to surrender!

"Amidst daily survival in pursuit of our dreams, careers, fame, power, fun, excellence, money, the trials we contend with daily, all these blinding focal points of our life, we forget - we make it our least priority, the human factor. Loving self, loving others, simplicity of life, and nurturing our faith is all that matters."

When we go back to the roots of what life really is all about, it always brings us back to the basics.

"Getting to know yourself or someone else is a bit like peeling an onion layer by layer, until you reach the core! There may be a few tears along the way, but it's worth it!"
Written in 2006 by Simon Heighwaya --- United Kingdom
Because the closer you get to the core, the closer you get to love!!!

"When you affirm big, believe big and pray big... big things happen."
Norman Vincent Peale
July 10, 2006

You have a dream you dared to dream
It started long ago
But the road ahead seems hard and long
And you feel your strengths are few
You've seen so many try and fail
And discouragement's set in
And see the roadway to success
As what's already been

But new roads are paved with each new day
They have a place to go
They wait for one with sight to see
And faith to guide them through

The road signs mark the way ahead
The dream calls loud and clear
And you will find along the way
True friends are always near
You do not have to walk alone
For you'll find a helping hand

So should discouragement set in
Together you will stand
Hold fast your dream
Make faith your stay
Meet the challenge face to face
And believe the road that lies ahead
Is the road to your success

So many I meet along the way are walking in total discouragement. I can see such potential and it breaks my heart to see them so unfulfilled. I hope these words will lift up and edify.
