Balanced Living

Declare a holiday with friends and plan a get-together that you may enjoy your companionship. It can be as simple as a potluck on the patio. Realize the gift that friendship brings and take time to honor it without the necessity of an occasion.

Sharing good times is enough of a reason. Make time for the elderly in your family and in the lives of those around you. Time and company is the greatest gift you can give them as they so often are left alone and ignored while we go on with our busy lives.

When you are going shopping invite them along. They will enjoy the companionship as well as the ride and help you give them and you were going anyway. Keep in touch by phone and mail with those that are too far away to see.

Keep cards on hand for a quick cheering up or a thinking of you, even if you don't have time for a long letter a short note will do. It says you're in my thoughts today. We all like to get something besides bills and advertisements in the mail, and it brings a smile to someone's day.

Start your day and end your day with the Divine. Either in prayer or conversation. Talk to God as if to a best friend and a loving Father, for no one is more interested in your or concerned about your welfare.

Know that you can rely on God more than anyone else in your life. He will never let you down. Not only that, He will show you the way. Take time also to be alone. To think, to meditate, to go within. To be silent in order to listen, in order that you may know.

To live in balance. For self and service. For family and friends. For oneness and spirituality. To know faith by seeking the Father and to know brotherhood through allowing others into our lives.
