You may speak your truth, but soothe your words with peace

Tell your truth as soon as you know it. Yet tell it gently, kindly, and with compassion for the hearer. Someone needs to hear the truth from you today... but that person also needs your deep compassion as you speak it. Seek to say what needs to be said with softness, and with a wide open heart. Remember, the truth can hurt... but it hurts a lot less if you care how it feels while saying it. Neale Donald Walsch

Peace is not merely a distant goal we seek, but a means by which we arrive at goal

Martin Luther King Jr. said that, and he was right. And his wisdom holds true not only for peace in our world, but for peace within ourselves. All of our spiritual traditions teach the same thing. To achieve peace, be peace. Yet how does one be what one is wishing to experience? By a sheer act of Will. And...by causing others to experience what you wish to experience. Neale Donald Walsch

Bad news does not have to get you down

It can actually get you going. The things that really matter in life often become more clear to us when we encounter bad news or bad luck. We can use such moments to expand our experience of our most precious treasures: the people that we love. Now may be a wonderful time to get back to basics, like board games with your children, quiet talks with your friends, a moment of gentleness with your spouse. Neale Donald Walsch

"It's my choice" is a complete sentence

To want something is reason enough to choose it. No need for more, no need for anything else. It's not because it's a good idea that you should do it. It's not because it's on your way that you have to take it. Just because you have a gift does not mean you have to use it. Wanting one thing is not only a good reason to make a choice ... it's the only one. Yes, to want is enough. It's enough to separate you, to move, to change jobs ... To say yes as to say no. The only question is: where do you feel called? All the rest (except of course moral considerations and commitments to respect) is just the weather. "It's my choice" is a complete sentence. Maybe you sometimes feel it's not enough ... But the only thing it's missing, maybe, is a point at the end to finish it. Marie

The price of magic (or "if you are too good")

Good Thursday! I hope you are well. :) I am writing from Santa Barbara, where I came to celebrate my birthday and the wedding of a friend. (Not to mention the very practical things I have to deal with.) I recently told you about the delicious feeling of community that has settled in my life ... You can see on the left three of the wonderful people who have contributed to it, with who I celebrated last Saturday. I have a very good imagination, but I can hardly imagine anything more magical than sharing a healthy meal with them. I offer you today a reflection inspired by a conversation with another very beautiful (too beautiful?) Person that I had the happiness to mix lately. I would not be surprised if you recognized it. I'm happy to meet you this morning ... And I hope you find this text...

All the changes occurring right now on this planet are leading to a better life for all

The movement here is going to be back to basics, back to what matters, back to our true values in families, in relationships, in business and commerce, in politics, and in the world. Do not worry, therefore. This is the Time which has been predicted. And only good will come of it. Neale Donald Walsch

Negative passions may run high, but they do not have to rule you

Your inner peace, and the sanctity of your being, are not worth trashing because of some negative feeling you have about something. Just let it go, and return to the knowing and experiencing of who you really are. Try not to abandon the self. Try very hard. In the end, your soul will be so grateful. Neale Donald Walsch

The time has come to get clear about who you are and what you choose

There come moments in every person's life when a decision is necessary. A big decision. A major choice. Such a time is now. What you get to choose today is who you are and who you choose to be, and what you wish to experience in your life. Remember, not to decide is to decide. Neale Donald Walsch

No financial crisis can overpower the peace of God

At a time of extraordinary uncertainty, people are turning everywhere for answers. How about to God? Those who know God as a living reality in their lives are finding peace in the midst of turmoil, security in the face of fear. It's all, in the end, about priorities. Life priorities. Do your priorities have to do with the body? Or with the soul? Neale Donald Walsch

There is a Chinese proverb: Great doubts deep wisdom

Small doubts little wisdom. Never stop doubting, never stop questioning, never, ever assume you have all the answers. Having all the answers kills the question itself; renders it lifeless -- and you, too... Keep looking, keep seeking. Never, ever find it all. Because when you find it all, you deny that there is more. And there is never not more. Neale Donald Walsch

False modesty will get you nowhere -- nor will genuine modesty when it is not required

Modesty is rarely required by Life, did you know that? It's true. People are more self-deprecating than they ever need to be. God says it's okay to celebrate your self. Honor the self, and delight in expressing your talents and your gifts. It is through the happy sharing of your treasures that you show other people that they are treasured. Always, always remember that. Neale Donald Walsch

Enthusiasm means everything

Not just a little. Everything. If you are involved in some kind of project right now, or launching any personal endeavor, your enthusiasm (or lack of it) will directly determine how successful this undertaking will be. If you are not excited at the core of your being by it, drop it right now. If you are excited at the core of your being, demonstrate that in everything you think and say and do. You will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today. Neale Donald Walsch

The next step is the most important step

Take it now. Do not wait. Life is not going to come down there and sprinkle glitter dust on your shoulders to let you know that you are Good...or that you are walking the Right Path...or that you are making the Best Decision. Take the next step. Right now. Stop waiting for a "sign" from the "gods." Your sign is your intuition, wrapped in your desire. Hesitation is not a stopping place on the road to heaven. Neale Donald Walsch

Desire is a powerful force can be used to make things happen

Marcia Weider said that, and she was right. Yet do not confuse desire with expectation, or with need. Desire has an entirely different quality to it. You can desire something without needing or requiring it. That little difference makes everything work. That little difference is the whole trick. Desire, do not Require. To desire propels. To require compels. Life will not be compelled, but it can be coaxed... Whoever or whatever you are trying to compel today, stop it. Just...fall back into the soft cotton of desire. Neale Donald Walsch
