Allowing for JOY

“When a sword is tempered, it is first heated to melting point then hammered into a desired shape. It is plunged into cold water. Once cooled it is fired and hammered again until it grows sharp and strong. This tempering makes the sword worthy of being carried by a King. As we learn to endure and surrender to the fire, the hammer, and the cold, we grow strong and uncomplaining. We are able to face whatever comes, holding our temper, while we ourselves we are being tempered.” ~Ann Mortifee, In Love With The Mystery

Joy and Woe

04/19/2014

Man was made for Joy and Woe,

And when this we rightly know,

Through the world we safely go;

Joy and Woe are woven fine,

A clothing for the soul divine.

~William Blake

Finding Solace

Psalm 27:1
 NIV ~ The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?

“It’s been proven that the thoughts we choose

have everything to do with our emotions.

I can tell you that a commitment to feeling good

can take away a stomach ache, fear, depression, sadness,

anxiety – you name it. Any stress signal is

a way of alerting you to say the five magic words:

I want to feel good.

This is your intention to be tranquil and stress free,

and it’s a way of connecting to spirit.”

Wayne Dyer, Seven Secrets of a Joyful Life
