Louise Hay’s book, “You Can Heal Your Life,” was self published first in 1976. She has gone on to create her own publishing house, Hay House, and is a radiant being of light in the world. Every time I have seen her, there is a presence that is palpable from any distance. She exudes love. The following words are on the last page of this valuable book and I have copied them into this page so that I will read them often and remember the power of love:
Choose What I Say
(aka The Word Song)
Music and Lyrics by Kit Holmes
Words give us poems, lyrics and rhymes
Novels and lines from a play
On rocks and on pages, all through the ages
We’ve tried to express the same way
Words are the seeds that made you and me
And gave us our nights and our days
So I carefully, consciously, willingly, thoughtfully, lovingly
Choose what I say
When someone asks me about my day, I get a thrill. Same in reverse. When I ask someone about their day, I get a thrill. So, if I like to be thrilled, then I can reach out, touch someone, and together we can create something optimistic or pessimistic. I really enjoy the answers to my questions. Each person is so different, so unique, and represents a story in action. Each holds unlimited possibilities. Each one of us was generated by an energy field that knows only possibilities. So, whatever I perceive, it becomes my reality. When I engage with someone on a one to one basis, I can be interested, enthusiastic, and friendly. They can, too. One person can make a huge difference.
This happy day is to be celebrated. We received Halloween candy at our church this morning. The ushers passed the candy following the passing of the collection plates. Just loved that! We will give candy to the little ones who show up from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.– all in frightful costumes. We hope for at least one great grandchild to ring the bell. Our neighborhood has many young families and Halloween last year was a great joy. We will costume ourselves and enter into the spirit of all hallows eve here in Booda, Texas!!!
