Where you place
your attention influences what comes to you. If you place your attention on
worry and fear, or on doubt over your capabilities, you will tend to pull what
you fear toward you. If you place your attention on positive action that makes
you ready for wonderful things to flow toward you, that focus will tend to pull
toward you the people who can give you a little lift up toward your dreams.
You are powerful, but all
of the power resides in this moment, and all of the action is within what you
can do. If you wish to motivate other people to do things, do it in a positive
and direct fashion, by learning to be an effective leader and infusing others
with your commitment and passion. Make all of your actions positive. Make all
of your thoughts positive. Leave off worries and complaints, manipulation and
attempts to control others. Go deep, find your truth, infuse it with dedication
and passion and shine out, glowing with resolve, glowing with right action,
shining as a beacon for others to follow. This is the way.

Your job for yourself is to
open your windows, glimpse the world as it truly is and let the air of new
experience blow through. Your job is to truly clean house, to clear out the
cobwebs of old experience and patterns and let your inner world sparkle with
And as for other people, it
is useful to know that their reactions are rarely personal, even if they are
expressed as such, and that they are often dealing with mere shadows, and what
you think you say and do with such precision and clarity may be but a blur of
movement and a murmur of sound by the time it makes its way through to them.
Experiment with new ways of
expression. Be observant and see if you can begin to understand some of their
filters of perception. And be compassionate and loving, knowing that the drama
which colored and distorted their view may well have been a drama you were
'May we live in peace without weeping. May our joy outline the lives we touch without ceasing. And may our love fill the world, angel wings tenderly beating.'
