"If we are willing, it is possible to change our [fearful] belief system. However, to do so we must take a look at every one of our cherished assumptions and values from the past. This means letting go of any investment in holding on to fear, anger, pain, or guilt. It means letting the past slip away and with it all the fears from the past that we keep extending into the present and future."
"When we recognize that what is in the best interest of another is also of complete benefit to us, we gain inner tranquility, if only briefly, because for that moment we have left our own personal hell behind. The mind simply cannot focus on misery when it is flooded with the desire to heal and make happy, even if the appearances and forms of misery remain."
"We need to remind ourselves that peace or conflict is always our choice. We are truly responsible for what we experience. Peace does not come to us by chance or good luck. Peace or conflict always comes from a decision we have made ourselves -- a decision to put into our minds only loving thoughts, or a decision to hold on to thoughts that are fearful, judgmental, and attacking."
"Practicing attitudinal healing raises our consciousness of how we are unintentionally always of service to others. People glean insights and understandings by observing how we think, react and live. We serve others simply by existing. We don't have to intentionally do, say or be anything. When we are at peace within ourselves, we share peace simply by being."
"Service is part of the journey. It is not an end in itself. It is a vehicle by which we reach a deeper understanding of who we really are, as we learn to forgive and love those people given to us in all of life's experiences. Those who we serve are our teachers."
"The swelling of compassion in the heart is the great herald of eternal freedom. Compassion is the awareness that it's okay to be where we are, to experience what we're experiencing, with the undercurrent knowledge that there's something else. In a moment of quietness we may find that something else and devote our lives to it."
"The peace of God is everything I want. The peace of God is my one goal; the aim of all my living here, the end I seek, my purpose and my function and my life, while I abide where I am not at home."
