Peace and Joy


Letting go of attachments awakens the true self.

(Listen to my song “Listen to Your Heart” by clicking HERE)


Hebrews 10:34

You even joined in the sufferings of those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, knowing that you had a better and lasting possession.


What are the things that bring you happiness?

Are they human-made things that will not last…or spiritual things that will?

What is at the center of your motivation for whatever you do? Is it to please your ego…or to please God

We tend to treasure material possessions…while God treasures love, mercy, forgiveness, compassion and justice.

We are actually spiritual beings in the process of becoming the unique human expression of God’s Love…but many times we get side-tracked into the grasping for power, prestige and possessions. 

We will have to let go of all those things when we die. Why not start letting them go now?

As your attachments diminish…your true self emerges.

It springs from the depths inside you where God (Love) abides at your core.

Peace and joy are available now …for the kingdom of God is present (Luke 17:21).

“Be still and know that I am God!” (Psalm 46:11)
