“ Claim today as a demarcation, a new beginning

where you can regain your trust in love, where you

start looking for love,giving more love,and being

responsible for places where there hasn't been more love in your life. ”

“ Remember all the answers you need are inside of

you: you only have to become quiet enough to hear them. ”

“ To keep the vessel of your consciousness

cleansed, you have to release what accumulates in it. ”
