Dreams within Dreams

by Sarah Nolt (Notes) on Friday, May 24, 2013 at 10:58am

~ Leo Tolstoy's Letters
" our whole life, from birth to death, with all its dreams, is it not in its turn also a dream, which we take as the real life, the reality of which we do not doubt only because we do not know the more real life?"

Forgiveness 24/7

"Whatever you're upset about happened, and is over ...
so get over it already " ~ David Hawkins

Your (and my) entire past is over.
Breathe in. The past can touch us not. (acim)
Breathe out. It's always NOW when we practice surrendering
everything that just happened. Forgiveness 24/7.
