When we have the courage to let go of anything standing in our way - - and that
includes the dreams we could make come true
(if we worked hard enough),
those we think we "should" make come true, or any other distraction taking our
energy- - and choose instead to honor the unique dream our soul wants
more than anything in the world,
life becomes magical. 4

“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the
end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow.”  6
When we have the courage
to see our lives as they truly are,

with open eyes - -
accepting whatever it is we see
with compassion and gratitude - -
that's when things really start to happen. 3
Come to the edge. We might fall.

Come to the edge. It's too high!

Come to the edge! And they came, and he pushed,
and they flew . . . 5

Courage - to change the things I can . . .

Serenity – to accept the things and people I can’t . . .

Wisdom - to know the difference . . .

It takes strength to be firm,

It takes courage to be gentle.

It takes strength to stand guard, It takes courage
to let down your guard.

It takes strength to conquer, It takes courage
to surrender.

It takes strength to be certain, It takes courage
to have doubt.

It takes strength to fit in, It takes courage to
stand out.

It takes strength to feel a friend's pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to hide your own pains,
It takes courage to show them.

It takes strength to endure abuse,
It takes courage to stop it.

It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on another.

It takes strength to love,
It takes even more strength to be loving . . .
It takes courage to be loved.

It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.

It takes strength to admit that there are things
that are not yours to change . . .
It takes courage to accept that.

May you have the maturity and wisdom, to know
and understand these differences.

Serenity comes when you do.

May the world hug you today
with its warmth, and love.

And may the wind carry a voice
that tells you there is a friend,

Sitting in another corner
of the world wishing you well. 1
As you walk your path of life and love . . .
guide yourself into spiritual depths
Be patient with yourself;
there is no rush when it comes to
advancing on whichever path you have chosen.

We have chosen to come again,

A new day dawns as
we awaken
to the marvel of heaven on earth.

We are spiritual beings
wearing human cloaks.

Trust yourself and go within.

As the rambling begins to quiet,
listen to the whispers of your
inner self;
your intuition;
your spirit.
Keep what is good for you.
Love
all unconditionally.
One becomes a Way of Life. 2
