When does a belief hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?

as you can bring to the subject.

that represent your parents' opinions,
or your communities opinions, rather than your own.
Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.

and not about seeking happiness for yourself.

is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is a journey. It is not a race to test

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

moments of life that are utterly simple?

It is not our place to know the mind of God.
Spirit knows what is best in the long run -
best for each of us individually,

and experience physical and emotional suffering
in ourselves, our family, and our friends.

and ultimate wisdom to be the true test of faith.
