2nd Edition, Revised Material

When we lift our own hearts we exercise our will in the practice of celebrating life. What more can be more joyous?

Leaving our thoughts wander in to our accustomed habits and behaviors will bring the automation that turns in the opposite direction of self love and consciously bringing our divine connection to the present moment.

“This week we celebrate life, not death. … Offer your brother the gift of lilies, not the crown of thorns; the gift of love and not the ‘gift’ of fear.” ~ ACIM T-20.I.2:3,5

In this new year lets bring our focus to living in respect of ourself that will naturally be reflected in our respecting those around us - an organic unity of thoughts and hearts.

Blessings, Don
