Love Temple Wisdom No. 17

“We are really advocates of just getting as happy as you can be—which takes care of everything. Even if you don't have reason to be happy—make it up. Fantasize it. Make a decision that you're going to be happy one way or another—no matter what. ‘No matter what, I'm going to be happy! If I have to ignore everybody; if I have to never watch television again; if I have to never pick up a newspaper again, I'm going to be happy. If I never have to see that person's face again, I'm going to be happy. If I have to see that person's face, I'm going to find something to see in that person's face that makes me happy. I'm going to be happy. I'm going to be happy. I'm going to be happy.’ ”   ---Abraham

Love the Trees

Longwood Trees Sign 12.14.13

I was so inspired by this sign on a recent trip to the magnificent Longwood Gardens with my brother, a fellow nature-lover. Trees are very dear to me and I view them as our ancestors – filled with wisdom and so many earth stories. I give them my respect and love.
