When I feel the pressures of life, I take time out to slow down and turn to the presence of peace within me. I live in an abundant universe. I give thanks for the good I have received and thanks, in advance, for the good I desire. I am nourished by the bounty of the earth that sustains me physically and by the spiritual teachings that feed my soul. I use, share, and bless all that I have been given, and I give thanks to God.
