There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.†
Love is like magic
And it always will be.
For love still remains
Life's sweet mystery!!
Love works in ways
That are wondrous and strange
And there's nothing in life
That love cannot change!!
Love can transform
The most commonplace
Into beauty and splendor
And sweetness and grace.
Love is unselfish,
Understanding and kind,
For it sees with its heart
And not with its mind!!
Love is the answer
That everyone seeks...
Love is the language,
That every heart speaks.
Love can't be bought,
It is priceless and free,
Love, like pure magic,
Is life's sweet mystery!!
He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,†
He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;†
To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,†
To multiplied trials He multiplies peace.†
When we have exhausted our store of endurance,†
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,†
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources†
Our Father's full giving is only begun.†
His love has not limits, His grace has no measure,†
His power no boundary known unto men;†
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus†
He giveth, and giveth and giveth again.†
There is a guiding hand above all things. Often when things happen, itís not by accident. One day, when we look back at the seeming coincidences of our lives, we will realize that perhaps they werenít so coincidental after all.
With eager heart and will on fire,
I fought to win my great desire;
"Peace shall be mine,'* I said; but life
Grew bitter in the weary strife.
My soul was tired, and my pride
Was wounded deep; to Heaven I cried,
"God grant me peace or I must die";
The dumb stars glittered no reply.
Broken at last, I bowed my head.
Forgetting all myself, and said,
"Whatever comes. His will be done";
And in that moment peace was won.
Awareness - by Siddhaswarupananda
"Awareness" refers to that inseparable, essential, inherent attribute of yours, the self, which enables you to perceive thoughts, feelings, the world, etc., and indeed your own existence (self awareness = awareness that "I am").
Unfortunately, a person who is materialistic, greedy, and self-worshiping wants to take the place of God. He sees himself as the center of the universe.
