Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend... when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that's present -- love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure -- the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.

June 20th - Prioritizing Priorities
When we stop worrying about unimportant matters, we can devote so much more of ourselves to what is truly important.
Strange but true is the fact that it is only when we let the little stuff go that we discover that the big stuff is not really so devastating after all. Needless aggravation is seldom worth the cost it exacts.
The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.
What truly matters in my life is my faith, family and friends. I think that if you have these 3 things in your life, you live a life that matters. Life is short, focus on what matters and let go of what doesn’t.
What really matters is what belongs to your values and allows you to build something meaningful for you; so, tomorrow, you can turn and look at your past and say, all I have done had a meaning, instead of finding nothing behind you.
Remember: If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies with in us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Focusing on what truly matters, truly matters.
