Your agenda for this day has been set in your soul

The only question now is whether you will listen to that. Do you know why you are alive? To give voice and action and physicality to God. To become the grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about Who You Are. Everything else is beside the point. It will involve you, of course. It will grab you and hold you and make you think it is important today, but it will all be very much beside the point. Stay on course. Stay on course. Neale Donald Walsch

You need to make a commitment and, once you make it, then life will give you some answers

Les Brown said that, and he was right. And making a commitment means more than saying « I’ll try. » It means saying « I’m all in. I’m totally committed here. Even if the going gets rough. In fact, especially then. » Someone once said, aging puts wrinkles on the body. Quitting puts wrinkles on the soul. You will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today. Neale Donald Walsch

You are okay just the way you are

..and so is everybody else. Sometimes we want the kind of acceptance that we are not willing to give. Yet life is a two-way street, and we do so much better when we send to others what we want them to send to us. Just a gentle reminder today that you are wonderful, and the person right next to you is, too! Neale Donald Walsch

Happiness is good health and a bad memory

Ingrid Bergman said that, and it is so true. Memories, of course, bring up moments that are past, whereas happiness is always found in the moment that is here, now. Constantly remembering bad things, or sad things, can rob you of your present — that is, your pre-sent — joy. Happiness has been sent to you in advance by God. It is here, in this moment, if you will seize it…and share it. Neale Donald Walsch

If you become ruffled with every comment that you consider a 'slight,' you will never find peace

Nor will you find it by always separating yourself from those who ruffle you. You can only end so many friendships before you find yourself very much alone. You can keep making new friends, of course, but sooner or later they will ruffle you -- and then what? Perhaps the better course might be to let the ruffle go. People rarely mean it when they do that, and a touch of gentle tolerance and easy forgiveness every day is even better than an apple... Neale Donald Walsch

Every increased possession loads us with a new weariness

John Ruskin said that, and he was right. Life is not about our physical or material possessions, it is about the Agenda of our Soul. When material possessions serve that agenda, they can be wonderful and are to be celebrated. But if they come between us and the soul, then we may very well be delayed on our holy journey. Our journey is the path back to peace, to harmony, to deep inner joy, to love, and to God. Neale Donald Walsch

It is well to avoid the tendency to catastrophize

Stop worrying about all that could occur tomorrow. You are getting agitated about things that haven't happened yet...and may never happen. Stay here, right here, in this moment. What is going on right now...what is occurring right here...? That is all that matters. That is where your life is being lived. You will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today. Neale Donald Walsch

You must invest three percent of your income in your self-development in order to guarantee your future

Brian Tracy said that and he was right. I know you really want to take that class or that seminar or that spiritual growth retreat, but you think you can't afford it. The truth may be that you can't afford not to. Try following your highest impulse. Your mind rarely invites you to explore things that are worthless -- and your soul never does. Neale Donald Walsch

If you are going to fuss over things, it is important to pick your battles

The ideal, of course, would be to "fuss" over nothing. But given that we are all human, that may not be possible. What is possible is picking much more carefully the things that we are prepared to make a fuss over. Ask yourself: "How much difference will this make when I'm 85?" If you think it will matter then, let it matter now. If you make everything matter now, you may not get to be 85. Neale Donald Walsch

The cycles of life are endless -- and always serve you, because life is a process serves Life Itself

When things seem to be shifting away from you, moving in the other direction, closing doors, shutting down opportunities, remember that all things are cyclical -- including Life Itself. What you are experiencing is temporary -- whether it's "good" OR "bad." So stop calling it one thing or the other, and simply embrace it as What's Happening Now. You'll move through it all much more peacefully. And, one day, you'll call it ALL "good." Neale Donald Walsch

It is well to think well

It is divine to act well. Horace Mann said that, and he was right. Thinking is just the first step in creation. You've had some wonderful ideas lately about changes you want to make in your life. Now it's time to put those thoughts into a action, yes? Neale Donald Walsch

No cause is helpless if it is just

John W. Scoville said that, and he was right. Do not let a Just Cause go unassisted by you. Do what you can. Never think that what you can do is not enough. Every little bit helps. To do nothing is what hurts. You know exactly why you received this message today. So what are you waiting for? Jump in. Dig in. Pitch in. Do it now. No, no, really...now. Neale Donald Walsch

All of life is animated by a single fantastic energy, which is the essence of everything is -- including you

Isn't that amazing? Now, because this essence is who you are and what you are made of, it can obviously never leave you. Perhaps not so obviously, it can also be wonderfully helpful. It can bring you peace in moments of stress, strength in moments of weakness, courage in moments of fear, wisdom in moments of confusion, forgiveness in moments of anger, and love in all the moments of your life. All you have to do is know that this is true, and it will be true for you, right now. I think that's terrific, don't you? Neale Donald Walsch

Every day is a new beginning, and nothing from yesterday has to affect who you are today

It does no good at all to bemoan what you may have done on a day prior to today -- or even, for that matter, a moment ago. You don't have to carry that into the Present Moment, nor is your guilt about it going to do you any good at good. Simply resolve to become a different version of your self right here, right now. Use yesterday to inspire tomorrow, not to discourage it. You know exactly why you just got this message. Neale Donald Walsch

Home really is where the heart is

And if your heart is centered on God, you are 'safe at home' everywhere. In this day and time of continuing change, many people find themselves moving a great deal, and constantly having to try to make yet one more place "like home." Yet home is a quality you bring to a place, not a quality that a place brings to you. Let yourself feel at home anywhere and people everywhere will welcome you always. And isn't a place where you are always welcome...'home'? So feel good where you are right now. That's mastery. Neale Donald Walsch
