Life Is Simple - If Only We Can Remember This

Life is simple. 
Everything happens for you, not to you. 
Everything happens at exactly the right moment, 
neither too soon nor too late. 
You don't have to like it... it's just easier if you do.
~Byron Katie
 I just love this ... when I found this it really "spoke" to my spirit, rang true and made my soul giggle.
Happiness Always

Hi there. I love this quote too, because it helps me to meditate on positive things and light. Going a little further I would suggest, everything happens by you. Everything we think and perceive is because it is us perceiving it. No one else can cause us to think for ourselves and understand the world around us. :) Blessings, and Happy Holidays to you.

ArtSings, thank you for the compliment. I am in the process of trying to figure out how to change the comment settings. If you have a bit of advice please send it my way. It used to be moderated comments.

BabyMotherGoddess, well I'll try to explain what you can do ... first get to the click down menu which is between the Go to post List and view blog. Then at the click down menu click on settings. On the left side after you click, click on the post and comments. Now you should be where you can set your comments, set to comment moderation (this way you won't get any icky and nasty comments on your blog). I moderate all my comments to make sure my blog reflects who I am by allowing self expression but no negativity. Also I set word verification to NO. This is so frustrating to people and not necessary is you are going to approve of you comments anyway. Oh, I do so hope I explained this ok ... I tend to get things mucky when trying to explain things. Good luck.

Love and Light,

this little sentence "Everything happens for you, not to you. " is the most enlightened thing I have read.
