St. Frances and Mother Theresa dedicated to Dr Wayne Dyer
ST FRANCES OF ASSISI – PEACE PRAYER
The Peace Prayer
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, the truth;
Where there is doubt, the faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
MOTHER THERESA – FINAL ANALYSIS
The Final Analysis
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
…Forgive them anyway!
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
…Be kind anyway!
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
…Be honest and frank anyway!
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
…Be happy anyway!
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
…Do good anyway!
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
…Give the world the best you’ve got anyway!
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
Mother Teresa (Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu)
August 26, 1910 – September 5, 1997
“Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.”
PRAYER OF JABEZ
Oh that you would bless me indeed
And enlarge my territory
That your hand would be with me
And that you would keep me from evil
TO ST. JUDE:
Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, Friend of Jesus,
I place myself in your care at this difficult time.
Pray for me; help me know that I need not face my troubles alone.
Please join me in my need asking God to send me consolation in my sorrow, courage in my fear and healing in the midst of my suffering.
Ask our loving God to fill me with the grace to accept whatever may lie ahead for me and loved ones, and to strengthen my faith in God’s healing power.
Thank you St. Jude for the promise of hope you hold out to all who believe, and inspire me to give this gift of hope to others as it has been given to me.

St. Theresa of Avila (15th century monastic nun) wrote about a deepened consciousness through a contemplative methodology of prayer. Silence, listening, and deepening your relationship with yourself and with God, are the cornerstones of reaching these heights. Humility, gratitude, integrity, and honesty with yourself – bypassing the polar paths we sometimes live; integrating all the pieces of yourself into one whole, one truth; the term is congruency. I don’t believe this is an easy task for anyone, yet alone those of us who live among the world (recall the statement, to be of the world not in it). We begin to ask ourselves why the truth can be difficult to see and to admit to who we are, embrace the shadows, and not fear the dark night of the soul (John of the Cross). Purification – aligning our heart and mind into a single voice, in all the choices of the day – one day at a time, one day at a time. I have entered my castle – not the textbook rendition, but my own consciousness where I will find myself, for myself.

it’s time to do/be something different . . . or maybe it’s just returning to who I am . . . time to find out. I feel good . . .

Chinese numerology and Feng Shui for 2011: This year we are going to experience four unusual dates: 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11, and that’s not all; Take the last two digits of the year you were born and the age you will be this year and the result will add up to 111 for everyone!!!! This is the year of MONEY. Also, this year, October will have 5 Sundays, 5 Mondays & 5 Saturdays. This happens only once every 823 years. These particular years are known as Moneybag years. Think good thoughts!

“Only in growth, reform, and change, paradoxically enough, is true security to be found.”

Transparency . . . . . it can be a very scary thing to show who you really are. Everyone has the dark and the light only what we shine forth is often beyond light. Many times it’s simply not real, or something we wish to be real but hasn’t yet manifested. So what does it take to find the love and security that make whatever it is or whomever you are “ok”? Something deep inside that most of us have lost somewhere along the lines.
Jesus says, “Be still and know that I am there” . . . be still to listen, to hear, and then to intuitively know.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through.
We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.
We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.
We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.
No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others.
That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear.
We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows.
Self-seeking will slip away.
Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.
Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us.
We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.
We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not.
They are being fulfilled among us – sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly.
They will always materialize if we work for them.
