Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion,kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person that shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. A soul mate's purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your EGO a little (or large) bit, show you your obstacles & addictions, break your heart open so NEW LIGHT can get IN , make you so out of control that you have to transform your life... for Love seeks the glory!
Persistence is key. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "Press On" has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race. - Calvin Coolridge.

The Invitation - Oriah Mountain Dreame, North American Indian Elder
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living . . . I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are . . . I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon . . . I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow - if you have been opened by life's betrayals, or if you have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it fade it or fix it. I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful or realistic or to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true - I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself, if you can bear the accusations of betrayal and not betray your own soul.
I want to know if you can be faithful and therefore trustworthy. I want to know if you can see the beauty, even when it is not pretty every day and if you can source your life from God's presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours or mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon 'Yes!"
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after a night of despair , weary or bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done for the children.
It doesn't interest me who you are, how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, and if you truly like the company you keep in those moments.
Blessing for a Marriage - James Dillet Freeman
May your marriage bring you all the exquisite excitements a marriage should bring, and may life grant you also patience, tolerance, and understanding.
May you always need one another - not so much to fill your emptiness as to help you to know your fullness. A mountain needs a valley to be complete; the valley does not make the mountain less, but more; and the valley is more a valley because it has a mountain towering over it. So let it be with you and you.
May you need one another, but not out of weakness.
May you want one another, but not out of lack.
May you entice one another, but not compel one another.
May you embrace one another, but not out encircle one another.
May you succeed in all important ways with one another, and not fail in the little graces.
May you look for things to praise, often say, "I love you!" and take no notice of small faults.
If you have quarrels that push you apart, may both of you hope to have good sense enough to take the first step back.
May you enter into the mystery which is the awareness of one another's presence - no more physical than spiritual, warm and near when you are side by side, and warm and near when you are in separate rooms or even distant cities.
May you have happiness, and may you find it making one another happy.
May you have love, and may you find it loving one another.
There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imagined by the thought.
In order to do this, a person must pass from the competitive to the creative mind. Otherwise she cannot be in harmony with formless intelligence, which is always creative and never competitive in spirit.
A person may come into full harmony with the formless substance by entertaining a lively and sincere gratitude for the blessings it bestows upon her. Gratitude unifies the minds of individuals with the intelligence of substance, so that a person's thoughts are received by the formless.
A person can remain upon the creative plane only by uniting herself with the formless intelligence through a deep and continuous feeling of gratitude.
A person must form a clear and definite mental image of the things she wishes to have, to do, or to become, and she must hold this mental image in her thoughts, while being deeply grateful to the supreme that all her desires are granted to her. The person who wishes to get rich must spend her leisure hours in contemplating her vision, and in earnest thanksgiving that the reality is being given to her.
Too much stress cannot be laid on the importance of frequent contemplation of the mental image, coupled with unwaivering faith and devout gratitude. This is the process by which the impression is given to the formless and the creative forces set in motion.
The creative energy works through the established channels of natural growth, and of the industrial and social order. All that is included in her mental image will surely be brought to the person who follows the instructions given above, and whose faith does not waiver. What she wants will come to her throught the ways of established trade and commerce.
In order to receive her own when it is ready to come to her, a person must be in action in a way that causes her to more than fill her present place. She must keep in mind the purpose to get rich through realisation of her mental image. And she must do, every day, all that can be done that day, taking care to do each act in a successful manner.
She must give to every person a use value in excess of the cash value she receives, so that each transaction makes for more life, and she must hold the advancing thought so that the impression of increase will be communicated to all with whom she comes into contact.
Everyone who practice the foregoing instructions will certainly get rich, and the riches they receive will be in exact proportion to the definiteness of their vision, the fixity of their purpose, the steadiness of their faith, and the depth of their gratitude.
