Let it be said that we are a generation of mindful people who live not in fear but in truth, which is then expressed in gratitude, in presence, in mindful living, in love.  Let us be the generation who know and live in higher consciousness.  This is the hope in us for all generations. ~Sherry Petro-Surdel

And in the evening, when I lie in bed

and end my prayers with the words,

‘I thank you, God, for all that is good and clear and beautiful,

I am filled with joy’…

I don’t think then of all the misery,

But of the beauty that still remains…

I’ve found that there is always some beauty left

in nature, sunshine, freedom,

in yourself;

these can all help you.

Look at these things, and then you find yourself again,

and God,

and then you regain your balance.  ~Anne Frank
