Appreciation is the Key to happiness!

It's true! No matter how many times we hear that appreciation is the key to happiness, we have to hear it again, and again, and again! 
Otherwise our patterns of complaining can seep back into our lives. For today, let's challenge ourselves to not complain- even once! 

What a glorious mission we are all on. All of us Bodhisattvas of the Earth, all of us who chant the name of the Mystic Law...all of us fighting our own negativity and winning as often as we possibly can! 

Thank you all for your fellowship. Thank you all for you fellowship to each other, and the peace you create in your communities and in your families. 

Today is my birthday and I feel all the love around me, and I feel the love and happiness I generate every day from inside of my life. 

We are all so much more precious than we know. For today I am offering you the well-known quote from Mairianne Williamson that is often attributed to nelson Mandela. Let your light shine! 

“Our deepest fear 

is not that we are inadequate. 

Our deepest fear 

is that we are powerful beyond measure. 

It is our light, 

not our darkness that most frightens us. 

We ask ourselves, 

'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' 

Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. 

Your playing small does not serve the world. 

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking 

so that other people won't feel insecure around you. 

We are all meant to shine, as children do. 

We were born to make manifest the glory of God 

that is within us. 

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. 

And as we let our own light shine, 

we unconsciously give other people 

permission to do the same. 

As we are liberated from our own fear, 

our presence automatically liberates others.”
