This week's quote:
""It's not the career you choose, the friend you marry, or the path you take that determines success or happiness in life, but that each day, in some small way; you seek to amaze as much as be amazed."-Mike Dooley, Notes from the Universe
 
 
This Week's Affirmation
Spirit flows through me every moment with its healing energy .

 
 
Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer
 
I Amaze Myself
There is one Power and Presence known as God, Spirit, the nameless. Realizing I am one the omniscience of God, I am awed and humbled.
 
This feeling of amazement crowds out the news, the negativity, and the unkindness that sometimes appear to surround me. Each moment, I challenge myself to be more amazing, to love more, to give more, and to live more. I cherish my vibrant health, knowing it gets better every day. I appreciate the relationships in my life and attract more of them to me. I am grateful my prosperity, giving and sharing from it, as I observe my increasing abundance. I honor my work, and each day it brings me new gems of accomplishment. What an amazing life!
 
I am so blessed, I am so grateful for all that I have. I amaze myself. I release my word to the Law and celebrate Its perfect manifestation. I am amazed and amazing. It is done. And so it is.
Rev. Maryum Morse

Quotes About
Community
 
"Only through love can we obtain communion with God."  -Albert Schweitzer

Intuitive Card Reading just for You!
 
I am pulling a card from 
"Archangel Power Tarot Cards"
by Doreen & Radleigh!
 
Strength
"Strength and grace through kindness. Self-confidence. Forgiveness".

"You have great strength and compassion! The kindness and understanding that you give to others are a blessed gift. However, it is equally important to show gentleness toward yourself. You may see aspects within you that cause you worry or impatience. But every person is a child of God. It is by balancing all aspects of yourself with love and mercy that you learn to exhibit those same qualities to people around you.
 
You are far stronger than you may believe. The situation you find yourself in requires a very soft and sensitive approach. Archangel Ariel can help you stay strong in the face of any challenge.
 
Additional meanings of this card:
Self-confidence. Patience. Self-control. Forgiveness. Inner strength. Influence through kindness.
 
Archangel Ariel is the angel known for protecting animals, the environment, and those who seek to safeguard our world. Her name means "Lioness of God," and she can inspire great courage in the hearts of those who call upon her, Archangel Ariel is also known to be an angel of manifesting the essentials of daily life. Call upon Ariel if you are feeling uncertain or experiencing a lack of confidence, and she will help you get in touch with you own inner strength."
 
 
JUST A THOUGHT (or two) ABOUT THIS CARD:
What stands out for me with this card is: Grace through kindness and Forgiveness
 
Here's why:
The Strength card is my favorite favorite card in the deck! Always has been - maybe its because it shows a beautiful lady oozing gentleness and love taming the wild but now-purring like a kitty lion with her presence.
 
So it shows miracles. It shows that there is ALWAYS time to be kind and be noble, genteel and a peaceful presence in this world.
 
So what if your main savage beast is your mind. This card is the nudge that says :
 
"Hey - wait a minute! That person you're beating up there is ME!!"
 
This brings up that old yarn about the finger pointing. As you point one finger out in judgment of another, there are four other fingers pointing back at you.
 
I recently decided to give myself a day of pampering - the leisurely wake up, sitting on the patio sipping tea in the sun. Waited for a ride from my homegirl and we hit the Salt Caves and then was off to a masseuse with our names on it.
 
That slowdown and nurturing day clicked me back into my own purring, contented kitty routine and guess what? It made me feel loved.
 
When it all comes down to it, the Strength card is a reminder to just do that. Love yourself up something fierce and then you will be strengthened to do what you "need" to do because you have been supported by the most important person in the world - YOU!
 
So then once you've taken care you, then this good loving feeling will spill over onto others.
 
So go on! Treat yourself! You not only deserve it - the whole universe is aching with anticipation of you doing just that.
 
 
Let's delve into the symbols
Here's why -
 
"Strength" - is the 11th card in the deck. Eleven is that elemental number that is a Master number that speaks wisdom and connection to the very essence of the Divine. It is a 911 direct number to that which has brought you here.
 
The Strength card shows gentleness overcomes conflict. Love is the light in the dark hallways of your ego. Your ego is your chrysalis stage where things get all choppy but the real truth is that you are safe and just need space and time to evolve into the greatest and most beautiful version of yourself.
 
So if you are in the chrysalis, you don't struggle. You surrender. You flip around aggression and banging your head against hard rock.
 
If you're in beef status with a loved one, you back away. Give yourself a breather and a time out and go do something that nurtures you and your overstimulated self.
 
Real strength is about knowing what is right for you at any given moment. Trusting and loving you for all you are and will be.

The beautiful heart within you is your oasis and space for succor and benevolence.  
 
Be confident in that and you'll realize that there are other ways besides Hulkin' Out on a fellow brother/sister who is just as bewildered and scared about the future as you.
 
Love yourself so well that you can't help but show up as a beacon of light for others suffering in the dark.
 
Find your courage and strength through kindness and you'll have all the superpower you have ever needed and more.
 
Here is a quote to help illustrate:
 
""Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."
Lao Tzu
 
Here's an affirmation to use to help get in the flow:
 
The light of God surrounds me; the love of God enfolds me; the power of God protects me; the presence of God watches over me. Wherever I am, God is
  And so it is.
And So It Is.

My happiness and fulfillment are not dependent upon any outward events, or external conditions.
 
I regularly invoke in myself feelings of joy and gratitude. I know that this healthy habit contributes to my well-being and happiness, both now and in the future
 
More and more, I feel emotions of happiness and thankfulness arising in my life, automatically and spontaneously.
 
I stay connected with my Source, by cultivating gratitude and joy. I create, and experience, these emotions on a regular basis throughout the day.
 
I emotionally celebrate with each opportunity that comes along in life, no matter how small or big.
 
I feel the presence of an all-powerful God guiding and blessing me...and giving me massive amounts of strength, happiness, and health.
 
I grow stronger, happier, and healthier, each day.

What Brother Ernie said:
 
 
The Brotherhood of Man
 
If this brotherhood of man were recognized and practiced by the world at large, all war, poverty and need would vanish from the face of the earth.
 
They are creations of the finite mind and were never intended to be.
 
God views all as a perfect whole; our divisions are only apparent, they can never be real. Hate generates hate; love begets love, and peace brings its own reward. Again let us not fall under the illusion that we can possibly measure life from the short range experience of that period of time between the cradle and the grave.
 
Life is everlasting and we are eternal beings.
 
Eventually love overcometh and exalteth itself above all, for love is a synonym for the Eternal Heart of the universe.
