" When we surrender to God, we surrender to something bigger than ourselves - to a universe that knows what it's doing. When we stop trying to control events, they fall into a natural order, an order that works. We're at rest while a power much greater than our own takes over, and it does a much better job than we could have done. We learn to trust the power that holds galaxies together can handle the circumstances of our relatively little lives."

" The Divine has come to you in love through so many forms: mother, father, wife, husband, children and friends. The same love comes to you in the form of the Master to elevate you to the level of divine love, which is also your own nature."
Sri Sri RaviShankar ji --- Submitted by Narayan T.V. --- India
There is only one caste, The caste of Humanity. There is only one Religion, The Religion of Love. There is only one Language, The Language of the Heart, There is only one God, and He is Omnipresent. He is the divine love.

" As I look back at my life, I feel forever grateful that God has taught me the value of Life, Love, Family, and Friends. Because I have this understanding, my smile is extra bright, and the love I am able to give is just right. I am happy to say "my soul shines" even on a cloudy day."

Being Happy

The irony of living is when
A life of magic sometimes goes tragic,
And calls for the heart to gracefully survive
The fate of a bull's-eye on target.

Being happy - the highest ideal
Sometimes as effortless as the flow of a river
Sometimes as trying as a stubborn donkey
But always a quest worth striving for
Amazing graces of the true joys
Lie in the virtues of character

A heart with holes made whole
When life and love are shared,
With all who are in need
Of sweet sounds of happiness,
Heard even by the deaf
And caressing strokes of kind words,
Felt even by the leper.

Shine the light called love
That shines brighter when reflected
From all corners of the world.

" All human beings want the same: to be loved and accepted and become happy. While listening to the spiritual songs from any religious or spiritual path you can hear and sense always the same soul-desire to stay connected with the source of creation, with the pure endless love. To be able to give the love, at first, LOVE YOURSELF WITH ALL YOUR HEART! Only when we love ourselves, we can love others freely without fears and borders. When we feel love within ourselves, we are connected with everything and everybody and we feel real bliss. How true it is that all paths of life lead to Divine, one way or another, and that Divine is sitting within us."

" Each person's path in life is never identical; everyone's path is unique. For we each travel our own roads toward our destiny but it's the choices on what paths to take that dictate the direction of what our lives are destined for. You just got to have faith in knowing GOD paved a way through all the negativity for you to follow... to your destiny."

I wrote this in hope that people choose the right paths in life even though there are times when the wrong paths seems easier, they never are. God will show you the way through.

" You have to understand that you will never be able to control the way people feel or react to certain things; it's in their character. Yes, they can change their behaviors and their attitudes, but their character is who they are! Therefore, live life for you, live life like God would want you to, without worry, without fear, but with faith and perseverance! Live to make you happy! After all, you're the only one that can live your life!"

" Physical healing is temporal but God's grace is eternal. Given the choice, I would choose God's grace every time."

This works magically if you are under stress or suffering from grief. Everything is going to end, sooner or later, so you don't have to worry.

" Keep on being a blessing. Share yourself, for you're a blessing to others. Feed others, not only with what money can buy, but feed and nurture their hearts with God's love. The happiest of people are those who share their being."
Copyright © 2009 James Padilla
This is what I practice, though in my case, I am not expecting anything in return. I am already thankful that I was able to make a person happy in the best or least possible way I could and that's good enough. I invest in things of value which money can't buy but what the heart can feel. When we face God, He will not see how good looking we are, or even what we have achieved. He will just simply look into our hearts and eyes and He will know how we lived our life.

" Believe your own God. Believe he does all for the best and get on with your day-to-day life. You will soon realize how safe it is under his protection."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Rinooza Niamath --- Sri Lanka
I always believe that whatever happens to us in this world, smiles or tears, success or failure are for the best. Maybe we don't realize it immediately but results will be given later. It would happen only if you believe that your God will never do a thing bad to you. So I believe in God.
