Monday Motivator #2

After creating and publishing my Fun Monday post this morning
(If I was in charge of the world ...), I felt moved to pick up my well-used & cherished copy (a 1984 edition I purchased in 1986 and have used ever since) of Louise Hay's book You Can Heal Your Life ... and it opened at random to the following meditation. I wish to share this morning. She writes:

In the infinity of life where I am,
all is perfect, whole and complete, and yet
life is ever changing.
There is no beginning and no end,
only a constant cycling and recycling
of substance and experiences.

Life is never stuck or static or stale,
for each moment is ever new and fresh.
I am one with the very Power that created me
and this Power has given me the power to
create my own circumstances.

I rejoice in the knowledge
that I have the power of my own mind
to use in any way I choose.

Every moment of life is a new beginning point
as we move from the old.
This moment is a new point of beginning
for me right here and right now.

All is well in my world.

and I add ... Blessed Be and so it is. Thank you very much ... words I learned from listening to Marianne Williamson talk about A Course in Miracles about 25 years ago and have adopted as my own ... in meditation and prayer.

Thought for Today
"I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I've written for myself, and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part." Shirley MacLaine

I've learned so much from Louise L. Hay--and I keep coming back to her, again and again.

Librarian Lee – I’m delighted you ‘randomly’ happened by from Mary Ann’s, and I hope you’ll return as time permits.

Mama Zen – You’re quite welcome ;--)

Sandy – How interesting that we each needed a similar message on this Monday. I’m delighted I was able to share something so relevant.

Yertle – I’m glad and you’re certainly welcome. Thanks for setting such a wonderful example. More often than not, your Monday motivators speak to me with relevance … no matter when I happen upon them.

Karen – I keep her book handy and refer to it often … especially when troubled by physical symptoms. More often than not, I find myself chuckling with recognition when I read what she has to say because she’s so ‘right on’ most of the time.

To all again – Thanks again for visiting and sharing your thoughts. I hope you had a wonderful week and are enjoying your weekend as well.
Hugs and blessings,
