Source does not impose
worship, slavish service, or
punishment for we must
in our own hearts voluntarily
recognize and love Him.
The Creator does not

leaving us with free will
It is our own choosing
to give the gift of
following God’s will
that brings us closer
to Source in all
His loving perfection.
When we become truly
the indwelling presence
of Source, it is a natural
evolution to see more
contact, more understanding
of this supreme connection.
Ultimately we awaken to the knowing
that we are not separate,
that we are truly One with All.
healing the heart and mind

I’ve worked in the mental health system for twelve years now, and prior to that was a patient for three. My family was educated to believe that I would be sick my whole life, and that they should have very little hope for my future. When I became a family counsellor, I vowed to never “educate” anyone in such a way. Since then, I’ve watched “Recovery” grow from a subversive whisper to a full-blown growing paradigm in mental health services. Countries have adopted Recovery and implemented its model into their health care planning, academics have studied it and written thousands of articles in peer-reviewed journals, organizations have restructured and reorganized their teams to reflect it’s principles, and brave everyday people have told their personal recovery stories to friends, colleagues, conferences, and the media. Recovery is a strong political force, a narrative, a system, a way of life, and a tool. So…

faith is stronger than hope, can cure depression too!
J: You must have faith…
T: That’s not an answer.
J: It’s important to have faith, as a matter of fact it’s the most important thing to have.
T: I think hope is but I’ll grant you that; but would you say it’s necessary?
J: Oh yeah.
T: But what’s the difference between hope and faith, ain’t they the same?
J: Hope is longing, faith is knowing.
T: Oh, you’re good….but, which is more important, I mean; in your experience?
J: Well, there is always more hope than faith, I know that much.
T: How do you suppose?
J: Hope takes little effort and people are lazy.
T: I see what you’re saying. I hear people say “I hope” a lot more than I ever hear “I have faith in or that…”
J: Have you ever noticed…

every day is a lesson
Sometimes we are so wrapped up in our distress, in our world of problems, in our life drama, that we miss what is there for us. We count the bad, but miss out on the good. We blot out the smiles by watching the frowns. There is good in almost everything. Sometimes it takes a little longer to see what that good is, but it is there. So the next time you are down, count your blessings whilst you are down there. If you find something to take you further down, stop on it and use it to raise you up.
I hope you have a good Thursday.
