Time is all we have, isn’t it?

Everyone has the same 24 hours per day, but it’s what we do with it that matters.

Use it to write daily and watch your writing improve.

Take the necessary time.

You most need to love yourself

Without self-love, how can you put love out into a world starving for love?

It is a choice you make.

Even in the dark of the night when you cannot sleep, even in your dreams that Startle you awake, love is the only way you can open up to the depths, and Creative ideas within.

You are a creative being

But the circuits of your creativity are jammed; Too much thinking and doing.

You must be.


It is all right to sit and allow your soul to return to you.

Too much of your self is spread around on outer aspects pulling at you from many directions, taking you further and further away from that light inside.

You may be tired today because your soul is calling out to you:

“Come back to me. Please let me be the great light that I am. Do not cut me up into tiny little candles here, there and everywhere – no,
Be one great ball of energy.”

Take time to meditate

Return to the awareness of what is truly important.

You can always fix this little corner of your life, or that one.

Call a friend, do another errand, or talk yourself away.

But to remain in the stillness is to honor your soul.

You have many talents to offer this world

Do not let them ooze out, down your face or into calls about taxes.

Balance your worldly needs with those within.

You are tired today because you need to stop and be still.

Do you ever give yourself a full day off?


Be quiet.

Go within – that is what you truly need.

Please listen to that.

Meditate today

Be gentle and quiet.

Your worldly work will be easier; you will have a stronger sense of who you are.

In this quiet, you will strengthen yourself.

The world wants what you have to offer.

Take the necessary time to bring it to them.

But first, bring it to yourself.
