Hello Readers –   quotes_to_inspire_2

I hope everyone out there is having a great holiday season. There is a lot of information about keeping  positive attitudes, choosing to be happy, etc. We all want to feel good, but often after catastrophes like the murders in Connecticut, it is hard to be positive. Just make sure you stay in touch with your feelings.  Allow yourself the expression you need to work out negativity.

During the holiday season it is more apparent that many suffer from depression.  Even mild depression can be a bummer.  Take some time and try this test by the Mayo Clinic (link below).  Just a few minutes and you will see if you have symptoms to warrant professional help, or at least know if you should seek someone to talk with about your feelings. Let’s reach out and help each other – and help yourself too.  Enjoy your day.

 By implementing the practice of love and compassion, we will naturally live a non-violent way of life. Helping others and not harming them is the work of non-violence. We need to develop love, compassion and forgiveness to develop inner peace and that naturally gives rise to non-violent conduct.

Those who have little interest in spirituality shouldn’t think that human inner values don’t apply to you. The inner peace of an alert and calm mind are the source of real happiness and good health. Our human intelligence tells us which of our emotions are positive and helpful and which are damaging and to be restrained or avoided.
