What the world needs now is more kindness, compassion and peace.
Wishing everyone a most joyous, peaceful and loving Holiday.
Prayer of St Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

You are only as sick as your secrets. I want to be a part of a conversation that breaks down shame. Life happens. It’s about what you do with it. That’s were the grace lies.
Sean Corn Yogi & Humanitarian
I was brought up in a time where you kept things within the family. You know, those family secrets. My parents were first generation American, they were both Holocaust survivors. When they came here after the war, they worked really hard to make a living and raise a family. I can’t even image all the things they went through and witnessed. They had many secrets. They didn’t want to talk about all the horrible things they experienced and I can understand why. However, by them keeping secrets about their life, caused me to continue this cycle which resulted in a lot of shame and guilt that kept me emotionally captive. This is where addiction can hide its ugly self. Until I became aware that the secrets were not protecting me but keeping me a prisoner in my own life did I decide to liberate myself from them.
If you are caught up with the mind-set of what will the neighbors think, or if your afraid to shine, be different, stand out, be real, be authentic, be original, be vulnerable, Just be YOU! There is goodness in you. You are worthy! You matter! You are amazing! You are loving and you are loved!
Share your beautiful self with others. Remember if you didn’t have a shadow, there would be no light.

Let There Be Light! Everything that thrives is fed by light. If you lift up a rock, and there was a seed under it, you will see that it sprouted but it is a colorless and a stunted seedling searching for the light. Within a few hours of warmth and filtered light, you will see that it straightened itself and color began coursing through its veins.
We too need to have the weight of a burden lifted from our shoulders in order to thrive. We need to be in an environment that is encouraging and supportive to restore health and happiness.
With all that is going on the world today, you can be a beacon of light? How can you be of service?

“We are not going to deal with the violence in our communities, our homes and our nations, until we learn to deal with the basic ethic of how we resolve our disputes and to place an emphasis on peace in the way we relate to one another.” Marian Wright Edelman
Peace begins within our own mind, body and spirit. We are really all one, and, all connected. We live on one planet, our earth. Although it may appear that the world is out of balance, and in turmoil, there is an incredible influx of light and love being illuminated within us. All you need to do is open your heart to receive it. Now is the time to understand that we can resolve our differences, and unite again as one. Let us all pray for Peace!
