"If it is only a dream, why is pain so real?" "A dream head struck against a dream wall causes dream pain. A dreamer is not cognizant of the hallucinatory fabric of a dream until he awakens. Similarly, man does not understand the delusory nature of the cosmic dream of creation until he awakens in God." Paramahansa Yogananda

"You soul, being a reflection of the ever joyous Spirit, is,
in essence, happiness itself. If you keep the eyes of your
concentration closed, you cannot see the sun of happiness
burning within your bosom; but no matter how tightly
you close the eyes of of your attention, the fact
nevertheless remains that the happiness rays are ever
trying to pierce the closed doors of your mind. Open the
windows of calmness and you will find a sudden burst of
the bright sun of joy within your very Self."
Paramahansa Yogananda

"Nothing is more important than that you feel good"

Most often I think I have to figure out what I need to
do to be happy, what I need to change, what I need to say,
where I need to go, who I need to be with.........on and on.
I believe happiness comes from happiness. Like energy
attracts like energy. I forget that it is in me, shining brightly,
and I just need to allow it to come forth. The rest takes care
of itself. Today I will commit to 'opening the windows of
calmness' and let the sun of joy come in. The sun is shining out
and they were behind clouds last week. This is something
I try to remember when looking at the clouds in my experience.

Katherine--I just found this new blog of yours. I am intrigued and also in awe. Can you do any kind of readings via phone or email? Probably not, I'm thinking, but it is worth the asking. I have just recently found The Abraham tapes. Love listening to them. The ones I found are called: Living the Art of Allowing. I love the concept of being able to have anything in life that you want. You just have to learn how to change your vibrational qualities. I think this is the work I need to be doing right now. As always, love your work. Love your story here now too.!

Thanks Teri. I am glad to hear you have found Abraham, I like their teachings and have learned quite a bit from them. Nice to see you over here.

Thank you for opening your windows today and letting the happiness shine my way. I especially needed to read this today.

Isn't this a lovely quote? I read it to 2 friends and they were just as tuned around as I was. Glad it was the perfect thing for you. That's why I want to do this blog.
