Notes From Life 2013

Pamela Markoya

Faith is hope with a track record.
Brevity is the soul of wit.
Do not stand by my grave and cry. I am not there. I did not die.
If it has a name, someone has done it.
We are responsible for own lives.
We grow in love with ourselves and with others.
I am lovable.
Spirit is in the pause.
Make yourself familiar with the angels for without being seen they are present with you…
and behold  them frequently in Spirit.
Spirit, blow my mind so I can connect with my heart and know Your Presence even more.
My first thought is usually my humanness…
My second thought is my Spirit.
Check in with Spirit.
I am closer than you think.
Spirit does not let you win the battle… Spirit raises you above the battlefield.
In Spirit’s economy, there’s enough.
Pray as if everything depended on Spirit.
Work as though everything depended on me.
Thanks for everything. I have no complaints whatsoever.
I feel, I felt, I found…. Identify not compare.
Don’t be so hard on myself. Be self-forgiving.
Forgiveness is non-attachment and non-resistance.
Humans are pack animals… I need my pack.
Don’t quit before the miracle.
Put more into life than what I am taking out.
Do small things with great love.
Tides change… moons change… things change.
The experience of Spirit is not a concept; it’s a knowing.
Life is a mystery to be lived not a problem to be solved.
Spiritual amnesia… is learning how to do and forgetting how to be.
Be more, do less.
Life is learning to live with unresolved problems.
Your life is my will.
People need to be heard, not fixed.
Don’t try to win; Just try not to lose.
Higher Power is the great mystery and the great reality.
The amends are for me… sets me free. I’m sorry and I’m changing.
Without faith nothing is possible. With faith nothing is impossible.
Think. Intend. Know.
Prepare your mind to receive the best that life has to offer.
The premise, the practice, the promise, the possibility: All discord will be removed with love. Live by the premise and we inherit the power to create everything. This is the promise.
When I am in Spirit, I am in love, abundance and connection.
It is possible and it is happening.
If you put it down on paper, it stops moving around.
Know thy self, help others.
If you ask Spirit for help, people will show up.
What is important is what we overcome, not what we are trying to be.

I am ready… I am ready to be surprised.
There is nothing lost in the universe.

I suffer from a condition called, “First Thought Wrong!”
Roger Housdan, Sacred Journey’s in a Modern World : “Every moment was asking me to awaken to the secret design of my life hidden to my own daylight eyes… Unique for every person; the cast of a Soul has an unspeakable intelligence … The intelligence in every human heart that longs to know itself in the light of the world.”

Strip your prayers, simplify, de-intellectualize. Reach Spirit not through understanding but
through Love.
Spirituality is living a positive and creative life instead of being negative and self-destructive.
