"I bless my mess, when I baptize it success."
To trust in Life reduces the pressures of every day living. It makes you feel that the whole world is supporting you at all times. This is exactly what the world is doing. Something great, wonderful, and true is backing up each of us. –Raymond Charles Barker, The Power of Decision.
Charles Fillmore once said, "One should make it a practice to meditate regularly on the love idea in Universal Mind, with the prayer, "Divine Love, manifest thyself in me." This produces a positive love current, which, when sent forth with power, will break up opposing thoughts and render them null and void. . . . The love current is not a projection of the will, it is a setting free of a natural equalizing, harmonizing force that in most people has been dammed up by human limitation."
Meditation is an experience and loving and being loved that the Center of us. This Center is not a place to go but a level of consciousness to feel. In this consciousness we love God and God loves us. There is no question of the latter, for –"I have loved you with an everlasting love." Our need is to accept it, to experience it, the bubble over with it. It is a consciousness that we are in love with God, and God is in love with us. And this sense of oneness in love "is the only real business of nature."
When we feel the emotion of love, it is customary for the face to light up. The constant experience of transcendental love imparts to the face and to the whole being a spiritual radiance. The smile becomes a light with spiritual beauty. The smiling face is not only beautiful and joyful –it is "loveful." –Eric Butterworth, Life is for Loving
Love is the fulfillment of the Law, we do not make the highest use of the law unless that use is motivated by love, by a sincere desire to express unity, harmony, and peace... We must embrace the essence of love that we may transmit it, giving loveliness to all events.
Today I bestow the limitless love flowing through me upon everything. Everyone will be lovely to me. My soul meets the soul of the universe in everyone. Nothing is ordinary; it is all beautiful, all meaningful. This love is a healing power that touches everything into wholeness, healing the wounds of experience with its divine balm. I know that this Love Essence, the very Substance of Life, the creative Principle back of everything, flows through my whole being, spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical. It flows in transcendent loveliness into my world of thought in form, ever renewing, vitalizing, bringing joy and harmony, and blessing everything and everyone it touches. –Ernest Holmes, 365 Science of Mind, June 23rd

I go forth in the name of Love.
My baptism in love may bring forth an intense feeling of compassion as I look into the eyes of another. I may feel divine love during prayer and know I am Spirit expressing. God may call me to be the hands and heart of love as I volunteer and help others.
Today I am baptized in the name of love and I go forth, as Jesus did, to be love, compassion, and kindness in the world.
Then Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized.”–Mark 10:39
As I'm driving in a car getting excited about the show coming on later, I decided that when I get home I'm going to write you a note to tell you about all the benefits I receive from listening. Just then, I realize that the song on the radio is "Right Now" (by Van Halen), so I pulled over to write it. LOL. Anyway, not only do you guys help me every week with helpful practical ideas that I use, but I find myself quoting you and passing these ideas to the many people I come across just about every day. So, just to let you know, you're show helps so many more people than just the ones that hear it. Thank you, thank you, and bravo!

Hi guys! I am a very sensitive person and take everything seriously so when I tuned into your show I was annoyed for a sec by your humor and scattered thoughts...but then you shared personal stories of your path every day, particularly the morning fog. You spoke right to me. I've been listening to the back recordings for 2 weeks now and they are changing my life, giving me really usable tools. So many Funniest Thing moments. Thank you for your lightness!!!!
