There is always a bit of fear where there is a bit of hurry. When you hurry to the train you are in fear that you may be left, and with that comes fear of other possibilities consequent on your being left. When you hurry to the party, to the meeting of a person by appointment, you are in fear of some ill or damage resulting from not being in time. This habit of thought can, through an unconscious training, grow to such an extent as to pervade a person's mind, at all times and places, and bring on a fear of loss of some kind, when there is absolutely no loss to be sustained. For instance a person may hurry to catch a street car and act and feel as if a great loss would occur did he not get on that particular car, when there may be another close behind, or at most two or three minutes' waiting will bring it. Yet the fear of waiting those three minutes grows to a mountain in size, and is in that person's mind a most disagreeable possibility. Through mere habit a similar condition of hurry may characterize that person's walking, eating, writing -- in short, everything he does, and will render it more and more difficult for such person to act with coolness and deliberation.
The quality of mind or emotion underlying all this hurried mental condition and consequent hurried act, is fear. –Prentice Mulford, Thoughts Are Things
Right action is the supreme art of life, and Jesus compressed the secret of that art into a sentence when he said: Resist not evil. A correct understanding of this commandment will regenerate your body, liberate your soul, and remake your life.
Love is God and is therefore absolutely all-powerful. Meeting hatred with Love is the perfect method of self-defense in all circumstances. It renders you absolutely invulnerable to any kind of attack.
If you receive bad news, if you are unhappy in your work, or in your home, feel out mentally for the Presence of divine Spirit, all around you; affirm its actuality; and claim that God has dominion over all conditions, and you will soon be free.
And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also (1 John 4:21). –Emmet Fox, Around The Year With Emmet Fox

Pray for Others
In the presence of God, all is well.
Each of us is one with Spirit, made perfect and whole. The riches of the kingdom belong to us because we are expressions of God. I see this truth for every person for whom I pray and see it manifest as perfect health, abundant prosperity, and deep peace.
Spirit moves in me, around me, and through me as I pray. I remember love is all there is and love grows as I pray for others.
And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job when he had prayed for his friends; and the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.—Job 42:10
Hey Hey We're the Monkey's!!! Ha ha ha! Hey guys! I'm doing a little catch-up on your episodes and loved the title. FYI, my nickname is Monkey! From Stephanie, and a lot of people refer me to that:)
Surprise Surprise about learning about my hearing impairment and your programs being Closed Captioned (CC). I do want to provide a heads-up that sometimes the words do not get typed correctly since I think the captioning is done automatically about 24 hours after posting the video. Although everything is ok b/c it's pretty clear:)
Steph and I had a great conversation about you guys and just love your zest for life! I feel like you're part of my family already because we speak the same language. And also make the effort to better ourselves as individuals FIRST, and then spread that to others.
FYI, I'm going through some relationship things with my girlfriend and could use some prayers. We are in transition right now and I know that asking for loving thoughts from others regardless of how things turn-out can be the next best thing.
Thanks for being there! Have a great day and looking forward to catching the next episode soon!

I am in a class right now studying the book "The Power of Decision", by Raymond Charles Barker and I am in the 4th chapter,"Decide To Be Happy", which you quoted in your episode "Be Sure to Tune In Daily". I loved it! I need to reaffirm a few things, and you light heart humor is always a welcoming blessing! Thank you so much!
