Where the Path of Life Leads Us

Laughter isn’t even the other side of tears.
It is tears turned inside out.
Truly the suffering is great, here on earth.
We blunder along, shredded by our mistakes,

bludgeoned by our faults.
Not having a clue where
the dark path leads us.
But on the whole,
we stumble along bravely,
don’t you think?

A Godly Woman

A woman of beauty
A woman of grace
A woman of excellence
Beholding God’s face
She walks with the Lord
With integrity
Knowing her purpose
And destiny
No matter what happens
She walks in God’s love
Reflecting the beauty
Of her Father above.

There Is a Comfort for Every Sorrow

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely, or unhappy is
to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the
heavens, nature, and God. Because only then does one feel that all
is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst
the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly
always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every
sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe

that nature brings solace in all troubles.

Mother Teresa’s Favorite Prayer

Dear Jesus, help us to spread your fragrance everywhere we go.
Flood our souls with your spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly
that our lives may only be a radiance of yours.
Shine through us, and be so in us
that every person we should come in contact with
may feel your presence in our soul.
Let them look up and see no longer us, but only Jesus.
Stay with us, and then we shall begin to shine as you shine;
so to shine as to be a light to others;
the light, Jesus, will be all from you.
None of it will be ours.
It will be you shining on others through us.
Let us thus praise you in the way you love best,
by shining on those around us.
Let us preach you without preaching:
not by words, but by our example,
by the catching force,
the sympathetic influence of what we do,
the evident fullness of the love our hearts bear for you.
Amen. 

—Mother Teresa

Cover Our Earth with Flowers

Cover my earth mother four times with many flowers.
Let the heavens be covered with the banked-up clouds.
Let the earth be covered with fog;
cover the earth with rains.
Great waters, rains, cover the earth.

Lightning cover the earth.
Let thunder be heard over the earth;
let thunder be heard;
Let thunder be heard over the six regions of the earth.

Let Us Love One Another

Together we travel the ongoing concentric spiral
knowing that we are loving to know how loving we are.
We are loving to know how loving we are.
Knowing that we are loving.
Loving to know how.

How loving we are to know.
We are loving to know how loving we are.

When a child is born,
At the root, is good.
Everyone’s nature is the same
But everyone experiences different things.
If there is no Way,
We will move away from our nature.
The teaching of the Way
Is valuable because it is particular to each [woman and] man.

Do You Know How Great You Are?

Most women secretly believe that they are “not enough.” The
very opposite is true. You are way…WAY more than enough. You
have more than enough to do, be, create, and have everything
you desire! In order to have EVERYTHING you desire, you must
shift your beliefs and begin to see yourself in a new and strong
way. It’s about creating a powerful mindset shift…the first step is

connecting with your Inner Goddess.
