In other words, don’t let the opinions of others–

stop you from hearing your own inner voice!

Those crazy opinions

will be flying all around you…

sometimes engulfing you…

but do not let them land on you!

–and build a nest in your hair!

Worry…wears a person down

Dispel the worries!

Let LOVE  thoughts invade you

Be a blessing to others…

we are interconnected–

Light beings of love!

Let us pray for each other!


Be a Blessing to each other!


Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles…it empties today of its strength. …
