“Love is the sandpaper that takes away the harshness of intelligence.”
Yogananda Paramahansa

I am grateful to be filled with love, to come from the heart as much as I can, to love the world –all creatures great and small, all of nature, and all people whether they are dimly light or brightly illuminated.

Love is the sandpaper that smooths out the rough spots of hurt and hatred that I may hold within me.

So thankful to listen to my heart rather than my logical mind, and let myself be open and warm-hearted.

Love lights up my life!


“Kindness is a boomerang.”
Gabrielle Bernstein

It is so appreciated when I receive a kindness, which is giving from one soul to another, in various ways.
Compassion, caring, love, generosity, and gentleness are all connected to being kind.

I am thankful when I’m feeling unconditionally kind…
let me be a kindness and love boomerang, all the time!

So very thankful for the flowing abundant stream of constant love from my heart
to my friends, family, and to all of humankind,
which I feel reciprocated in so many touching ways.

As I get older, I learn how to love more completely and more unconditionally,
and to accept and receive all the love coming back to me.

And as I’ve said previously, self-love is key.

Thank you for love, sweet love, which rules the universe!


“Dwell on the beauty of life.
Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”
Marcus Aurelius

I am so glad to acknowledge and appreciate the wonder, magic and incredible beauty of this world and beyond.

Every single day I am mesmerized by something of great beauty, usually within nature
and often, the love and kindness of ordinary people.

With my spiritual eyes, I can visualize myself running with the stars!


“But today we kneel only to truth, follow only beauty, and obey only love.”

Kahlil Gibran

My guiding lights are beauty, peace, love and joy.
From wisdom, intuition and heart-centered living, these qualities emerge.

I turn away from all that leads me astray, such as fear, pride, and ego
and worship at the altar of truth.

My faith in a higher power is the foundation of this altar.
