Dear friend,

Universal Spirit will not enter our lives unless we invite it in. We can open ourselves to cooperating with that flow of grace.

Every moment can be our time to hear from the Divine. Every action can be our chance to express Divinity. Each word we speak can carry the blessings of Spirit.

Concentrate, raise your energy, feel receptive, receive energy, add devotion. In this way we move closer to our own souls and the Creator. In moving closer to Spirit, our happiness increases.

Joy to you,
