My secret weapon

“Hate, in the long run, is about as nourishing as cyanide.”–Kurt Vonnegut ACIM Lesson 135 is one of my favorite lessons. I use it ALL the time. It comes in handy anytime I’m tempted to play victim.

“God is my boo.”— Maya Angelou Our eyes, as remarkable as they are, can only “see” a tiny fraction of the frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum.

Yabba-dabba-DON’T

Don’t fret. Don’t stress. Don’t work so hard. Course in Miracles is all about upsetting the apple cart.

Words, schmerds! Shut up, tune in!

“The Ego and Love are never on the same kickball team.” – Debby Handrich This may seem like a strange proclamation for a writer to make.
