Dear Friends,

Imagine that you have all the positive characteristics that you need to be true to yourself in any situation that you might meet. Take these qualities one day at a time and “see” yourself projecting them out into the world feel what it would be like to be confident assertive capable intelligent and creative.

Love and appreciation,






Love is the highest of all virtues and is the power of transformation. Love is more than a word. Love is the power of creation. Love is demonstrated through loving words and loving actions.






Love can be an elusive term and mean many different things to many various people. The idea that love is “an intense feeling of deep affection” does not give justice to the idea of love. Amorous love, spiritual love and other types of love are ultimately the hinge on much more than affection. While love is indeed based on feelings of affection it is also based on respect. The idea of unconditional love truly encompasses this idea. Unconditional love naturally creates calmness. Authentic love is always unconditional. There is no stress or strife connected to unconditional love. This does not mean that one does not have negative feelings or responses to people or situations. However one is able to base their behavior with respect and love.

Today, I allow the excitement of change to fill my life.

Today, I am here to love and be loved.

Today, I am compassionate and full of energy.



It is important to be clear that love is much more than feelings of affection. Begin each day and interaction with loved ones from the viewpoint of unconditional acceptance. Make a daily decision to offer them love and to create a space of calmness rooted in love with them. Take steps every day to express both affection and respect for your loved ones knowing that both lead to peace and calmness.





Already known as a healthy fat, avocado has even more to offer. Research at Tufts University near Boston has found that it’s an especially bioavailable source o lutein, a necessary nutrient for eye and brain health.

A high concentration of lutein in the macula of the eye helps to prevent age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of vision loss after age 60, and is a marker for the levels of lutein in the brain—higher is better.

In the study, eating one avocado daily improved memory, attention, and problem-solving. Compared to lutein supplements, a daily avocado more than doubled the concentration of lutein in the macula of the eye.






We are all beings of consciousness; everything that we are and do begins with our thoughts.






“One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life, that word is love.”
