Love is All

“Love all God’s creation,both the whole and every grain of sand.Love every leaf, every ray of light.Love the animals,love the plants,love each separate thing.If thou love each thing thou wilt perceive the mystery of God in all;and when once thou perceive this,thou wilt thenceforward grow every day to a fuller understanding of it:until thou come at last to love the whole world with a love that will then be all-embracing and universal.”-Fyodor Dostoevsky

Joy in Life

“Joy is what we are,not what we must get.Joy is the realization that all we want or need in life has been etched into our souls.Joy helps us see not what we are “going through,” but what we are “growing to”-a greater sense of understanding,accomplishment,and enlightenment.Joy reveals to us the calm at the end of the storm,the peace that surpasses the momentary happiness of pleasure. If we keep our minds centered on joy,joy becomes a state of mind.”-Iyanla Vanzant

Love the Universe

“Love all God’s creation,both the whole and every grain of sand.Love every leaf, every ray of light.Love the animals,love the plants,love each separate thing.If thou love each thing thou wilt perceive the mystery of God in all;and when once thou perceive this,thou wilt thenceforward grow every day to a fuller understanding of it:until thou come at last to love the whole world with a love that will then be all-embracing and universal.”- Fyodor Dostoevsky
