"The bud stands for all things even for those things that don’t flower,

and retell it in words and in touch, it is lovely until it flowers again from within, of self blessing"

"I saw an Angel imprisoned within the marble so I carved until I set it free."
We are those Angels, imprisoned within the marble of our own self-limiting thoughts, inherited patterns, beliefs and feelings. Using the tools we share at Release...Peace, we can chip away at the marble that represents those limitations, freeing ourselves to be the people we've always wanted to be and to have the life that so far, we've only dreamed about. Are you ready for that now?

"The more we see beyond the me-vs.-you, us-vs.-them duality to the deeper truth of unity, the more we can heal the illusion that we are separate from others”
Truth Heals by Deborah King
"All humans have ego, and it is one of the greatest mysteries to those of us who have never experienced duality.
Make no mistake, ego is the antithesis of love, and many of you know this.
It is the balance of this ego with love that is critical. All of these duality attributes are appropriate, given to you in love, imprinted upon your very biology. It is what you do with it that is so honoured.
Ego, tempered with love, becomes appropriate. It is in it's raw, untempered form that it becomes the enemy of love. Think about it. Isn't it odd that a poison becomes a healing substances when love is added? That's the way it is with ego."
Kryon, as channelled by Lee Carroll, Book VI

I am the catcher of souls lost
I am the embodiment of Peace
I am all of Creation"

Here are some of my favourite quotes. I do hope you enjoy them as I do.
As I special treat we have included some beautiful mages taken in Wales by James Rabiola. My thanks go to James for allowing his work to be displayed here.
A Blessing for the Senses:
"May your body be blessed.
May you realize that your body is
a faithful and beautiful friend of your soul.
And may you be peaceful and joyful and
recognize that your senses are sacred thresholds.
May you realize that holiness is mindful gazing,
feeling, hearing and touching.
May your senses gather you and bring you home.
May your senses always enable you to celebrate
the universe and the mystery and possibilities
in you presence here.
May the Eros of the Earth bless you."
Found in Anam Cara - John O'Donohue
"We are all inventors,
each sailing out on a voyage of discovery,
guided each by a private chart,
of which there is no duplicate.
The world is all gates, all opportunities."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Wherever there is light,
there is shadow.
Wherever there is length,
there is shortness.
Wherever there is white,
there is black.
Just like these, nothing can exist alone"
'the Heart of Buddha'
"Those who don’t feel this Love pulling them like a river,
those who don’t drink dawn like a cup of spring water or take in the sunset like supper, those who don’t want to change, let them sleep on.
This Love is beyond the study of theology, that old trickery and hypocrisy.
If you want to improve your mind that way, sleep on.
I’ve given up on my brain.
I’ve torn the cloth to shreds and thrown it away.
If you’re not completely naked, wrap your beautiful robe of words around you, and sleep on"
"If you don’t know what your passion is,
realize that one reason for your existence on earth
is to find out."
"Precious beyond price are good resolutions.
Valuable beyond price are good feelings."

Quote from a book called 'from Heart of a Buddha'
"May the light be with you.
May your lives be filled with joy and abundance in all areas of life.
May the light shine in your hearts so that love may be expressed.
May you have love and peace in your lives."
"To love and be loved
is to feel the sun
from both sides"
"All blame is a waste of time.
No matter how much fault you find with another,
and regardless of how much you blame him,
it will not change you."
“Western civilization is now confronting its own shadow in the form of global pollution, institutionalized corporate greed, and political instability. Fortunately, social upheavals and changes in the last thirty years indicate that we already appear to be moving in a direction that celebrates co-creation, relationships and working together rather than violence, conquest and force.”
John Major Jenkins
Never forget kindness"
"When I say to you,
‘You are lovely’,
you do not believe me,
because of the blemishes
you know so intimately;
but those blemishes are the scars
of your sufferings
and they shine out of your soul,
the way the daisies do
in the long summer grasses.
So when I say to you.
‘Even with closed eyes,
I still see how beautiful you are’
it is true.
"To find your own way is to find your own bliss…"
“The purpose of life is to be restored back to Love, moment to moment. To fulfill this purpose, the individual must acknowledge that he is 100 percent responsible for creating his life the way it is. He must come to see that it is HIS thoughts that create his life the way it is moment to moment. The problems are not people, places and situations but rather the thoughts of them. He must come to appreciate that there is no such thing as 'out there'.”
Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len

When I Know Who I Am, You & I are One"

what you are not aware, of is in control of you."

"We can bomb the world to pieces, but we can't bomb it into peace".

"Arrange whatever pieces come your way."
"I believe that humanity is ready for a transformation of consciousness, an inner flowering so radical and profound that compared to it the flowering of plants, no matter how beautiful, is only pale in reflection."
means waking up. Most people, even though they don't know it, are asleep. They're born asleep, they live asleep, they marry in their
sleep, they breed children in their sleep, they die in their sleep without ever waking up. They never understand the loveliness and the beauty
of this thing that we call human existence".
Anthony de Mello
There is some kiss we want with our whole lives,
the touch of Spirit on the body.
Seawater begs the pearl to break its shell.
And the lily, how passionately it needs some wild Darling!
At night, I open the window and ask the moon to come
and press its face against mine.
Breathe into me.
Close the language-door and open the love-window.
The moon won't use the door, only the window.
"The Master sees things as they are,
Without trying to control them.
He lets them go their own way,
And resides at the center of the circle.
He or She understands that the Universe
is forever out of control,
And that trying to dominate events
Goes against the current of the Tao.
Be content with what you have;
Rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
The whole world belongs to you."
Tao Te Ching
"In us, there is a river of feelings, in which every drop of water is a different feeling, and each feeling relies on
all the others for its existence. To observe it, we just sit on the bank of the river and identify each feeling as it surfaces, flows by, and disappears."
Thich Nhat Hanh
“Concentrate on finding your goal, then concentrate on reaching it”
"If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it, and this you have the power to revoke at any moment"
"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
while loving someone deeply gives you courage."
These words of wisdom are taken from one of the last books I read while based in New Zealand. Called "Te Wheke – a celebration of infinite wisdom" written by Dr. Rangimarie Turuki Pere CBE. Her salutation:
He Mihi – Salutations from the Author
Aio ki te Aorangi - Peace to the Universe
Aroha ki te Aorangi - Love to the Universe
Koa ki te Aorangi - Joy to the Universe
Pono ki te Aorangi - Truth to the Universe
Kia tau ko te kahukura - May the violet flame
Te wairua kore here - the spirit of freedom
Te kawe i te tika - that upholds justice
Me te pomo - and truth, prevail
He tohu aroha tenei - This is a gift of love
Ki te ao whanui - to the whole world
He maumahara ki te- it is a token of my regard
whaea a Papatuanuku - for Papatuanuku – Earth Mother
And another from an ancient Source:
“Tahia te ara kia kitea ai te huarahi ahu
atu te mata ki te ao marama kei kona
nga uri whakatupu e tatari an ki a koe”
“Clear away the obstacles so that the
pathway forward may be seen~
Turn your face to the world of light
for the generations yet unborn
are waiting for you...”
The Peace that is " I ", the Peace that is "I am".
Ka Maluhia o ka "I", owau no ka Maluhia,
The Peace for always, now and forever and evermore.
Ka Maluhia no na wa a pau, no ke'ia wa a mau a mau loa aku.
My Peace " I " give to you, My Peace " I " leave with you,
Ha'awi aku wau I ku'u Maluhia ia oe, waiho aku wau I ku'u Maluhia me oe,
Not the world's Peace, but, only My Peace, The Peace of " I ".
A'ole ka Maluhia o ke ao aka, ka'u Maluhia wale no, Ka Maluhia o ka "I".
Thank you Susan for sharing this with us!
May you awaken to the mystery of being here and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence.
May you have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.
May you receive great encouragement when new frontiers beckon.
May you respond to the call of your gift and find the courage to follow its path.
May the flame of anger free you from falsity.
May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame and may anxiety never linger about you.
May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul.
May you take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention.
May you be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul.
May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
"Out Beyond Ideas Of Rightdoing And Wrongdoing There is A Field -
I Will Meet You There."
In your life
A new day is dawning
Awaken and touch the beauty
Wherever you've come from
Whatever you've been
New possibilities beckon
Right here and now
Awaken and make them real
There was a time when you held in your heart
The most magnificent of dreams
A time when life seemed to carry
Endless promises and possibilities
Those dreams are still with you
Awaken and bring them to life
What you long for
Is longing for you
What you dream of
Is what you are meant to create
The doubts you have exist only in your mind
The anxieties that seem so burdensome are of your own making
Now is the moment to awaken,
and allow those doubts to melt away
Awaken, and dive deeply into the beauty of this moment
Allow your spirit to fully experience the richness of it all
Allow peace to fill you completely
Let it touch your deepest longings
Let it bring those longings to life
Your most treasured possibilities are real,
If you will simply let them live through you
Awaken to this moment, and life begins anew
Reach inside, and allow
your most treasured
dreams to awaken with you
Into a bright and shining new day
Remind yourself again and again
Of how beautiful life can be
Remind yourself again and again
That you can make it so
Step boldly and lovingly forward
Into this day
You've already come
So very far
You're stronger, more experienced
and more determined than ever
To fulfill those longings
That tell you who you are
Now is your moment to create real meaning
Now is your moment to awaken
And to truly and fully live
© 2006 Ralph S. Marston, Jr.

"True freedom and the end of suffering is living in such a way as if you had completely chosen whatever you feel or experience at this moment.
This inner alignment with Now is the end of suffering."
Eckhart Tolle - from Stillness Speaks
"We're all standing on the edge of a cliff all the time, everyday.
A cliff we're all going over.
Our choice isn't about that.
Our choice is whether or not we want to go kicking and screaming....
or whether want to open our eyes and our hearts
to what happens once we start to fall."
Allie Keys, from Spielberg's "Taken"
"We carry around the pain and hurt as some kind of punishment to ourselves or others to make amends. But there is no point in beating yourself up once you have had the realisation that what you did violated yourself or someone else. Learn the lesson and move on, letting go of any negative feelings that you are harbouring towards yourself and others. And then forget."
The Earth Guide Book, taken from 'The Angels of 9/11 by Caitlin Walsh
"A book must be an axe for the frozen sea inside us"
When working though personal problems Julian Sleigh writes in his book 'Crisis Points' - There are 3 choices when dealing with fears:
I asked God/Universe/Spirit to take away my habit.
He said, No.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
I asked God/Universe/Spirit to make my handicapped child whole.
He said, No.
His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.
I asked God/Universe/Spirit to grant me patience.
He said, No.
Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is learned.
I asked God/Universe/Spirit to give me happiness.
He said, No.
I give you blessings; happiness is up to you.
I asked God/Universe/Spirit to spare me pain.
He said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.
I asked God/Universe/Spirit to make my spirit grow.
He said, No.
You must grow on your own! But I will prune you to make you fruitful.
I asked God/Universe/Spirit for all things that I might enjoy life.
He said, No.
I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.
I ask God/Universe/Spirit to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
He said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
Thanks ever so much to K. Beate Richter EFT Level 3 Practitioner in Shanghai for sharing this beauty with me. Have adapted the info a little though!!
Your inner teacher says:
Be faithful to the tree that you are.
Like last year’s leaves,
shed the old stories,
the ache of unfulfilment,
the pain of separation
Follow the fool’s tracks.
He turns himself inside out
and upside down
and all for smiles,
all for laughter,
that splits paradigms
and shakes you to your roots.
Summer is a wild rose,
though only for a little while,
but your heart is
a rose for all seasons
Do not be afraid to be
heart to heart
