the most important moment of your life…

“Now is the most important moment of your life, because it is in this moment you create the rest of your experience. To be completely present in the moment is to live in total awareness, in totality and to be at peace with whatever is happening now…” – Amelia Amy Ann Campbell

A child-like spirit is vital to happiness…

“A child-like spirit is vital to happiness, health, and well-being. “The child”, Nietzsche says, “is innocence and forgetting, a new beginning, a sport, a self-propelling wheel, a Sacred Yes”. The lion becomes a child when the individual who says “I will” ceases to affirm their values contrary to the law of “Thou Shalt”, and affirms them instead “for the sport of creation: the spirit now wills its own will, … its own world”. Life is no longer a reactive struggle to defeat other forces. Life is a celebration of one’s powers – a sustained act of pure affirmation. The child-like spirit knows the joy of life and the innocence of perpetual creation’.” – From Nietzsche’s Three Metamorphoses

May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame and may anxiety never linger about you. May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul.

May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.” – John O’Donohue
