·Let past go. So often we hold onto negative baggage from past, and this stops us having spare hands to grab opportunities that come up for us Tell people that you loveI'd love to share with you a meditation practice that I use (through buddhist centre) that really spoke to me this week. Using your own meditation practice, or whenever you have a quiet time... ...focus your thoughts on yourself and send out loving thoughts to yourself. Why do we keep all that negativity around ourselves? I love quote from Marianne Williamson that some of you may be familiar with, that speaks about us all being children of God. As children, we loved ourselves and those around us unconditionally. Remind yourself how great you are, how safe, how loved, well and healthy. ...choose to send out loving thoughts to someone who is important to you - you'll already know who this is. Maybe it's someone who has been having a tough time, maybe just someone you want to send some positive energy to. ...send out your loving kindness to someone you meet, but don't know that well. Maybe it's your milkman, or postman, or chap who drives bus who gets you to work. Just send out that positivity... ...use your loving kindness to heal conflict inside of you that you may have with someone else. I've been learning this week that perception is projection - that we see in others something of ourselves. Isn't it nicer to think that we see just great people, as that tells a lovely story about ourselves? Choose to change your perception this week, and maybe those negative projections will change too.... Finally, send out loving kindness into universe. Expand your thoughts from you and yours, to room, your house, family, village, town, England, Europe.....as far out as you can, all way through galaxy. Think if there was all that positive emotion going around, if everyone was doing this. Would that have an effect on world?

Tim McGraw has it right - Live like your DyingWritten by Greg Ryan
Continued from page 1
Each day brings new decisions and new challenges when pursuing a relationship with Jesus and it means we have to die to self each and everyday. But, it also means we are promised tomorrow, life is not to be taken for granted. It could change in a moment like it did for guy in song.
This week love a little deeper, speak a little sweeter and if you need to forgive when you were denying doing it. It maybe then when God in heaven says to you, “Someday, I hope you give yourself chance, to live like you were dying.”
