I am loving and generous, helpful and considerate.
God is love, and I am a creation of that love. Through kind words and deeds, I give to others from the love of God within.
Love motivates my actions toward others. I ask myself, What is the kind thing to do? Kindness creates a heart-to-heart connection with others. The power of kindness is an extraordinary power for good. My words and tone convey encouragement, support, inspiration and comfort. As I tap into my innate sacredness, I am guided by love and take part in the flow of unlimited blessings.
Abiding in the consciousness of divine love, I am ready to let it fully express through me.
Whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones … truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward. Matthew 10:42
Heaven and Earth
Everything that you need exists in this present moment, and this moment is all that exists. In its brief flicker you will find all the time in the world. Through it you will contact the Living Information that will guide you with infallible direction. This present moment is the stargate through which you will leave the prison of human definition and expand into an awareness of divine perception. It is the crack between the worlds, not only the worlds of past and future, but worlds of time and space, spirit and matter, form and being. It is a timeless zone, the gateway through which you will again begin to participate in the adventure of creation.
Your entry into the eternal awesomeness of the present moment, into the Presence of God, will be through what we call a “psychological process.” This process is a process of identity shift, a process through which balance is restored in your awareness of the two realities. Through it, you begin to realize that you are not the form you animate, but the force of animation itself. Through it, you will reawaken to an awareness of all that you are in Spirit and in wholeness. It is a process that will return you to a state of grace, a state of health, a state of intimate association with all that is. This state already exists. It always has. Yet most human beings are blinded to it by the incessant machinations of the rational thought processes that they worship instead of God and His simple truth.

Field of Play
As of 2010, there have been almost 700 men who have been Major League Baseball managers. Some of them had great players, most of them didn’t. And that makes this list quite subjective. Some of the best managers never won a World Series. Some didn’t even have winning records. But baseball’s language is statistics, and they rarely lie. They also make the best arguments.
There are bound to be disagreements, but these are my 10 best managers in baseball history. The minimum stats for this top 10: At least one World Series title, and either a Hall of Fame plaque or a resume that gets them one someday.
The American Presidency
David Brooks is a political journalist with the New York Times and a regular on the PBS News Hour. Last evening he made the observation, ‘If you can’t organize a convention it is unlikely you will be able to organize and administration.’ It will be interesting to watch the upcoming Republican and Democratic conventions through this filter.
