Ten Teachings for One World : Wisdom from Mother Mary
by Gina Lake
Unless you become still, you may not know your joy,
which does not arise from the mind but from beyond it.

More likely, thought causes tension,
because underlying so much of it is
the sense of not being or having enough.

embraced, blessed, and kissed good-bye.
Everything passes in its own time.
When you are still, you let everything come and
everything go in its own time.
have a blessed week
