November Guidance Intuitive Oracle Card Reading
Welcome to November! After the Adventure card of October it will be interesting to see what November will bring for us. These monthly cards are to help us with guidance, to bring points to reflect on, and to allow us to go “oh yeah…” when certain things come up or happen during the month so we may be better prepared and resourceful!
We go to the Earth Magic Oracle Cards by Steven Farmer (Hay House published) for this reading. Connecting with the land, the earth, the sky, the water, with each other, and with all that is energy and spirit.
Mountain – Strength
There are layers being worked on and exposed this month. For some of you, this will seem like a regular occurrence over the last few years! It seems as if it has all been about the discovery, welcoming, and release of different layers of yourself and your life. Well hold on! As the calendar year heads towards its end, as those in the northern hemisphere head into winter and to a darker day phase, the layers you have been playing with come into full view. It will be a time of decisions, a time of letting go, a time of embracing, a time of deep learning, and a time of action. All the preparations will come forward now with the skills and knowledge you have already gained, to bring you further into your journey, further into the adventure, further into experience. Sounds scary to you? This is not the time to be scared, this is the time to know what you are bringing forward with you and what you are leaving behind.
For those in the southern hemisphere, the growth of spring is moving into summer. The new phase of the journey is feeling lighter and more hopeful than it has recently. With the light and the growth, you are looking at what you want to grow. You have planted so many things, so much possibility and potential that now it is time to get to sculpting your garden, sculpting and creating your path in ways that will design an amazing end of year and a fantastic year ahead. You need pathways in your growth so you can see the view and walk among your wondrous creations. Clarity is vital to you. If things get overgrown you will forget the joy of the season and the potential you have created. Stand and choose what stays and what goes, and where your paths will lead and travel through.
Back to the layers for the northern group, more of those are an audience here… You are trekking into winter. You need to know what you are carrying forward, what is of greatest value to you and to your next development and your next accomplishments. You will see layers coming up. Layers related to your home, body, and personal life. Layers related to your work, career, and income. Layers related to your financial management. Layers related to your history and journey. And layers related to your personal & spiritual development and future plans. This may seem daunting but remember you haven’t just started this work. Much of it has been going on for quite a long time. In many ways you long for the layers to get figured out so you can just enjoy and move forward feeling fulfilled and whole. Well, this month is a huge chunk of that, if you choose of course. No worries if you don’t, you will progress in your own way as is your right and your privilege. We are along for the ride and we will add some road signs when it is most needed.
For those choosing to embrace the phase of layers coming up, we encourage you to remember to breathe! The more you hold your breath and hold onto the layers, resisting them coming up, the more you will feel blocked and just not well. It is not your nature to fight these things because your deeper self knows this is all important and you will benefit from it. Enter the Mountain and the Strength.
Even if you do not feel very strong now, you are indeed incredibly strong. You have shown this with your resilience, your determination, your vulnerability, and your zest for life. That zest has been tested recently because overwhelm is setting in. Like the garden getting overgrown in the southern hemisphere information, for you, it is that the choice of what to bring and how to bring it into the upcoming phase is very large with numerous components. We want that zest for life back for you, that fun, that intrigue, and creative spirit, that joy in the small things… so layers are coming up to choose and to work with and through.
See the different mountains in the picture? There is one in front just behind the water. Then there is another slightly behind over to the right. The big ones then make up the background, coming up, peaked and sharp but also wise and strong. We want you to see the concept of these layers as you would these mountains. Something will come up about your home. See it rising as if from out of the ground. You knew it was there but now it is in your face. Then you see a layer of information and choice coming up about your work. It might push in behind the house one or push it over somewhat. And so it will continue this month, quite rocky and lots of shifting. The great thing? You have the capacity to easily move from one layer (or mountain) to another! This will not be like “climbing a mountain”. It will be like hopping from one to another, choosing which one, which layer to release, which to bring up and forward, and which to embrace. You can move them, shift them, learn from them, and more easily and freely, if only you become aware of the layers and remember your strength and skills.
Some of the layers will be things you keep and embrace. They will be coming up to help you and feel wonderful. Other layers will be coming up and in your face so you can see them and decide “Oh thanks, it is time for this to go!” freeing up space and energy for better things. Keep going all month.
Take a break occasionally by sitting on the beach in front of the mountains, looking at them, breathing and sighing. Maybe dance a little (or a lot!) to release some of the hesitancy and worry. Shake it out and off. Then look up at your layers again. One will likely show itself as more pertinent to attend to in that moment. It can be quick! See it, reflect, realize, and release or see it, reflect, feel, and release or see it, feel it, know, learn, and keep it with you like putting it in your tool box or back pack. You can hop from one layer or mountain to another easily and efficiently, progressing with your tasks as you go.
And then you will realize that one day, you can stand amongst your mountains of knowledge, experience, and strength, and go “Ah-Ha! This is great!” knowing you have done amazing clearing, releasing, realizing, reflecting, and learning. Those mountains that stay with you will feel joyous, smiling, and useful. Together you will step forward with a swing in your step and a lightness that connects you in new ways to who you are, to those around you, and to your life as you are now creating it. Yes!
Check in often with yourself. Pull together those who you know will really help you and don’t worry about the others. If the overwhelm sets in, it likely means you are looking at all the layers at once creating a blurry landscape with no direction or path. Focus, choose one, and see what needs to be done with it. Then when it has either been released or is part of your tools & team moving forward, move to the next one, and so on.
You have the skills and strength to do this. You are supported by mountains connecting the earth with the water, the fire, the stones, and the air. You can stand upon them working with them, creating and seeing the amazing vistas that are your life. It is a magical day!
Wow what a powerful reading! I hope it inspires you as it does me! Let me know
Wishing you an amazing month ahead!
Remember to reach out if you need guidance and clarity as you work with some of these layers and mountains. Your own intuitive reading will help shift what is no longer serving you while you realize what you need to know so that stepping forward is easier! Live one-on-one, written, and even text options are available. Contact me for yours today so this November can be full-on incredible!

Heritage and History
This is a big country. Canada has a huge expanse of land and water. It spans larger than most with much of it wild and untouched, allowed to respond to the elements and to nature with those who understand her best.
It has an incredible history. The heritage of Canada comes mostly from the history of other peoples, those who travelled far and wide trying to improve their lives, to take care of family, and to seek opportunity in various forms. Not much has changed really; people still come here hoping for a safer, more abundant life. And then there were those who were here to begin with and thankfully are still here.
On a recent road trip with a great friend, we allowed the road and some very basic plans to guide us. What fun! With over 1500 km of exploration, we visited suburban areas, country areas, agricultural areas, artistic areas, and a good number of First Nation territories.
With great interest and respect I looked up about some of these territories as we drove through. One in particular on Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron, Ontario, provided a fantastic history review on their website. The Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory makes up the homelands of the Peoples of the Three Fires Confederacy: the Odawa, Ojibway and Potawatomi. These Anishinabek tribes first experienced the European contact as early as 1610. 1610!!! That’s over 400 years. Quite the journey of trading, treaties, agreements, and arrangements, challenges of “other peoples’” plans, religious intentions, and more, finally keeping control over their lands and thus the “unceded” designation and a place in the history books. Proud and strong.
Living within the influence of Montreal, I sometimes forget how huge this country is. Driving through these different places, we only touched on a tiny portion of it. I was reminded of the importance of history. Remembering where a country came from and how it journeyed to where it is today, the good and the ugly parts, is vital to being able to progress with value and respect forward.
Through our drive we also saw regions that indicated English, Scottish, Irish, French, Spanish, and Dutch heritage. Even more were probably present. We also visited a Norwegian connection in the Muskoka region, valuable in the air battle training during World War II. Neither of us knew of how Norway and Canada were involved together and continue this friendship and allied connection today. Extra meaningful for my friend with Norwegian roots! I was reminded of the gratitude for the team effort that happens with allies during any kind of battle and recovery time afterwards.
Heritage and history, it touches us all and is a part of us all. The more we learn about it, the more it should be able to help us see our way forward. It should allow us to better understand each other and what we value and require for a fulfilling and joyful life. We still have much to learn and much to apply but I, for one, am incredibly grateful to be sharing this journey with such an incredible place and all the peoples, lands, and waters, which are considered today’s Canada.
What a great way to end off the month which started with the Adventure Oracle Card! Adventure it was!

We have traversed another season and are starting a new month! Whether you are moving further into Autumn or Spring, I wish you well! For us here where I am, it is a time of changing leaf and crop colours, of harvesting, of cooler days & nights, of preparing for the winter ahead, of Thanksgiving, and then of connecting closely with the spirit realms at the end of the month. Lots happening as usual, haha!
I have enjoyed pulling a card and doing a reading for the month. A great way to reflect and focus on what we want to create, to harvest, and what guiding knowledge is there to help us.
From the Soul Coaching® Oracle Cards for the month of October:
A new month, a new feel…
“Wonderful new experiences fill my life!”
New feel indeed! This card comes with a feeling of hope, of optimism, of possibility, and yes, even of fun! While an adventure can sometimes be a way to say that unexpected things are happening or will happen, in this context it is to look at an adventure as something you plan in order to bring you joy, experiences, knowledge, and to live fully! There are always unexpected life things. That is also a part of life, the intricate web and puzzle in which all are living. You cannot always see the puzzle pieces or the web lines but the more you know it is all a type of game where experiencing is the key, the more you will enjoy the ride and find joyful moments in the ride.
With this image, there is acknowledgement that some parts are not defined and not seen as you look out on this road ahead. Part of the journey. It is important to know that the road will come back up, it will come to where there is a brighter light and an interesting & hope provoking view. So even in the down moments and the valleys, know the rest is there, know that it will come back up. Find things that bring you joy, that make you smile, that make you giddy, and make you want to laugh. While you are learning, allow yourself to have some pleasure and enjoyable moments. They are so vital to your energy and well-being and to what you give back out to the world.
So… What would you like this next month of your adventure to be like? What will it be filled with? What will you manifest? What will you allow? What will you create? What will you release and let go of? All pertinent questions even if not all easy to answer. Take a moment, or a few, to let yourself play in the imagination of possibility and the planning of experiences. Even in the usual routine you have of work or home, family or responsibilities, plan in and find those moments of joy, those moments where you learn something and it builds you up, those moments of good adventuring, and those moments reminding you of your fantastic self and great strength. You are able to create this and so much more.
The sun will set and rise, that is a space, universe, and planetary phenomenon. You choose what rises and sets in your life, how you live, and how your respond to it all. You choose what light is going to come in and how you will feel when it touches you and when you ride that wave. You have so many choices, that sometimes you forget you can choose!
Choose an adventure this month! Something great, something wonderful. An adventure of a lifetime because in actuality, it really is, always.
I love this card and this reading! What a great positive energy, I hope you can feel it too!
Blessings for your day, week, and month ahead.
with love, Sheila

It was a great day on Sunday at the Buddha Bazaar in Montreal organized by Meagan Gibson of Zetï! Wonderful vendors, readers, speakers, and musicians!
C'était une belle journée dimanche au Bazaar de Bouddha à Montréal. Des gens impressionant qui vendaient, faisaient des lectures, des présentations, et les musiciens!
During my presentation I touched on some of the ways that we all receive intuitive guidance. Then it was time to pull cards! With the Autumn season starting, the Full Moon upcoming, and a lot of shifting going on, it was a great series of readings for the group present and listening.
Here are a few key points from the cards as you head into this next season and this bright moon. They all most applied to those in the room but also feel like they will help a wider audience, hence the share! Take what feels right, true, and helpful to you!
Identify and intend what you would like to be creating during this new next season phase. Also identify what it is time to let go of, what you don't need to carry forward any more with you! There is something you can just let go of now, release it, so you are lighter and more able to create what you want and need moving forward.
Remind yourself of all the successes you have. You can start with the smallest ones, did you shower today, did you have breakfast, and all the way up to the huge things you have accomplished and are accomplishing - finishing a degree, creating something that will impact and improve the world, etc. The more challenging the phase you are in, the more you can go to small successes to celebrate and see the promise of the next new moment.
Ancestors - at this point in history, many people may be sensing that they are bringing or are a source of bringing up knowledge and wisdom from their ancestral lines. This is very powerful. With this will often also bring up a need to heal certain things from those lines, hurts, disappointments, anger. You may be the one, the person who gets to play a big part in this. What is important is to remember the balance between both sides of this ancestral part. As you feel or know that some of the challenging sides are coming up, also remember the wisdom, the good sides, the amazing things about those times and those people, whether you know them or not. You will sense the wisdom, you may already be expressing it in your life. They are requesting that balance so that you do not only see the hurt and the struggle and so you do not forget about their other skills and wisdom!
If life gets very tough, very difficult and hard to deal with, the guidance yesterday was, for anyone feeling this way, to find something in this very moment that you love. It can be anything! Could be your cup of coffee, could be a tree, an animal, a person, a blanket... find anything that you love, keep going through until you find that one thing in the moment that you love. Hold onto that love in the moment, let yourself really feel it. That is the start of the journey back into your own life. Repeat as needed whenever needed.
And Strength... know that you have incredible strength in you. Noticing those successes and good points in your life is important for this. The ancestral wisdom and skills also come into this. And allow yourself to know you are never alone. Reach out to a human, reach out to spirit helpers, reach out to energy. You have strength, you have courage, you have excellence. And you are not alone.
Wishing you an amazing Autumn and I hope the Full Moon was blessed for you!
with love, Sheila

We welcome in the Fall.
The Autumn of our year.

May the New Moon bring you peace.
May it bring you healing and calm.
May it help you see where you are and your way forward, granting you sight beyond your eyes, listening to and through your heart.
I was blessed with some outside wild garden and forest time today. Letting it bring me renewing energy and healing from a cold that thought it would come to visit.
Seeing this phase of my meadow area was quite amazing. Lots of aster flowers blooming on their bushy plants. As I stood among them with the breeze blowing, I could hear the buzzing melodies. On quick glance, the meadow looks quiet, only plants moving in the wind. On closer look, each plant was a flurry of activity flitting and flying from flower to flower.
All different bees and wasps feeding and gathering. Wonderful buzzing as they travel and work. The occasional butterfly floating through too. In that moment, all of life was expanding before my eyes, so much, so vibrant, so amazing. What a blessing to witness.
And then a walk through the woods. Sensing the trees whispering to me and to each other. Touching their unique bark imprints, wrapping my arms around their full trunks, honouring that I get to share time and space with beings so much older than I. With much gratitude.
If you have the opportunity to be outside today, even if it is to stand on your front steps, to feel and breathe, enjoy it.
New Moon blessings,
Can you find the stick-type walking creatures on one of the purple asters?
Life beyond what we see in a moment.

September Guidance Oracle Card 2018
Can you believe it is September? Well yes it is and here we are with our guidance for this month.
Wishing you well
Fairies – Earth Magic
For quite a long time, the idea of “magic” has been connected with fantasy, with unreal, with mystical, with conjuring, with gifts, with mystery… and in some cases even with evil or bad. This may all be true in some ways, even the idea of magic being evil or bad because it depends on the use of it, the purpose, and the plan. Those who use it in a way that does not serve the greater good (which can be a perception as well – oh the complications of detail!) can create feelings and situations that are out of the hands of others and are not generating help, joy, happiness, health, etc. Is it the magic that is evil or bad or the person who wields it? Much like money, power, influence, and authority, it is good and wise to observe and question. Perception, meaning, and use is important.
Is magic itself far from what the average human being experiences? The quick answer is yes, most people do not deal with, recognize, or utilize magic. However, does that mean it is not there or that there is a magical aspect to their very existence whether they call it so or not? Is there something magical in the birth of a child, in the growth of a tree, in the sensation of love between two people, as family or in desire, or in the whisper of inner guidance that suggests which way to go? Is there something magical in the gliding of an eagle on the wind, the song of a whale, or the howls between wolves? Is there something magical in the communication of brainwaves and through neurons, of heartbeats and breath, of the sensation of the baby toe and how it helps the body to balance? Is there something magical in a spark of an idea, the pull to create, or the desire to help?
There are now scientific reasons for many of these things as humans continue to progress and learn. Does the deeper understanding and learning make them any less magical or make them even more incredible? In whatever you are undertaking this month, allow it to be magical. Let your thoughts be there to bring you to higher and better. Invite your body to work with you as you work with it. See the wondrous aspects of everyday life held in the most mundane and usual tasks, for even those have magical and amazing qualities in them.
Allow yourself to bring in the magic. Embrace it and utilize it wisely. What you say to another person. How you say it. Whether you smile or not. Whether you notice the incredible clouds in the sky or sparkle on the water. How you feel. What you feel. What you are aiming for and how you get there. Noticing the incredible wonder of each breath and each movement of your body. Noticing this in other people and creatures. Seeing the wisdom in another’s eyes, whether it is wisdom you were seeking or not, whether it is a person you know or not. Noticing the inner knowing you possess, how it expresses itself and how you listen and act on it. These are all aspects of magic, everyday magic, real magic, your magic.
And ask. Ask for magic, hope for it, wish for it, send out desires for it. How will it feel? What will it be like? What is your true magical essence when expressed in the here and now, in the human life with spirit/energy connection? Ask for help from other humans. This can be magical too and will be more and more as each embraces these possibilities. Ask for help from those who are ready to help you too, fairies, guides, angels, dragons, to name a few. All powerful in their own ways and all ready to be a part of your journey and your magic. Show them your vision and they will show you theirs, together progressing forward.
This is an amazing month ahead. See what magic it will bring to you. Open up to it and breathe it in.
What is your magic? What does magic mean to you? To reflect and observe is a great place to start.
Magical light blessings.
Contact me for your own guidance reading. Guidance and support for your life.
See out of the fog, shift from being stuck, and connect to what is amazing!

Guidance for the month of August
“I am a radiant, glorious, powerful being!”
You have so much beautiful power at your fingertips. Take a deep breath right now and allow yourself to remember that. Allow yourself to feel that deep into your being and deep from your being.
You also have an incredible array of choices ahead of you at all times. This sometimes presents a challenge to humans because it can stifle the mind as it tries to decipher what needs to happen next and what is the best course of action or decision to take. In most cases what is of primary importance is to make a choice and go towards it. Remember that the other choices are still there. They are not negated by your choosing a direction. If in your action towards that choice, you decide that it is no longer or was not in your best interest, then you shift course, and choose again. Like the face of a compass, it gives you all the direction options. The needle points to north but you can choose any direction you wish to go. It is there to situate you, not to say you need to go north.
If you are frozen in your choice making, this is a signal to stand still for a moment. Breathe into your body and into your life. Come fully into the space you are occupying. And then look around. See what is in your life. See what surrounds you. Feel what you are feeling and feel what your life feels like in this moment. Then when you feel you have been still for a good while, feeling calmer and more centered, it is time to look at your choice options. Feel the one that resonates most with your heart. It feels interesting, maybe a little exciting, maybe a little scary as well, but also with a curiosity and a joy present. Your heart nudges you forward. Just take one step, whatever that step is and then breathe again. Continue this until you build momentum or find that you are no longer frozen. You may even get surprised and find you are moving forward towards that choice faster than you imagined!
Some other choice and some other experience may be around the corner but at least you have moved forward to get there. You are connecting to your power in this decision making and action taking. Raise your hands up and smile in your power!
Sheila note: Writing out oracle readings is always interesting for me. What comes through is unique each time. In this one, the way of communication used what felt like more proper English with particular vocabulary that doesn’t always come up! Fascinating! Thankful for having some good English in my writing skill options, haha! and thankful for being able to receive and pass along guidance.

What will help us to know this month…
Breakthrough Soul Coaching® Oracle Card
This is a soul phase, where what has happened in the past, what you have learned, what you have experienced, what you have come to desire, want, and need, now comes to a point of expansion giving you the option to breakthrough if you choose. How do you know? There may be a driving push forward (or even a pull forward!) or restlessness when you are heading in a particular direction suggesting there is something more or different for you. There may be a deep sense of coming into your own and knowing + living as who you really are. Where to go next and what to do next may be large and profound changes as much as they may be subtle slight changes that mean huge amounts to you and your life. The size of change is not as important as the degree of realization that comes to you. You may not completely uproot and shift your life, you may simply notice aspects of life differently or react differently to them. Both and all are acceptable. Not everyone will be in gigantic climactic change, but if you are reading this, there is something that is shifting for you. You know it, you can sense it. This month is the breakthrough phase where you come out of the tunnel, whatever that tunnel was for you. Your choice is whether you stop where you are or even turn around back into the tunnel. You always have the choice and there is no right or wrong answer. It is your journey. The avenue that flows more easily is probably moving forward out of the tunnel where the light is brighter and where you are able to take a full expansive deep breath, from your heart centre and from your depths of soul.
When you question, the affirmation of this card is a reminder of how you are able to soar, you are allowed to soar, and you are destined to soar as a human experience. “I soar into limitless love, light, and joy!” Limitless love, light, and joy! Limitless! If you are feeling limited, look to where this is happening. Is it in your thought patterns? Is it because you are taking on too much of someone else’s thoughts and judgements? Is it because you have emotions which are wanting to be felt and expressed but you are holding them back in fear that they will actually make you feel? Is it because you doubt the amazingness of your human body and the life experience you are in? Limitless love, light, and joy! That is a part of you as much as your skin, as much as your lungs breathing, as much as your blood flowing. It is a part of you. Love, light, and joy, in limitless amounts, from unlimited source, it is already yours!
Connect to your soul and let it bring you out of the tunnel. It will work with your heart, with your sense of full wonderful self. It will show you things you may otherwise miss. Together you will learn more and be more. What? You are not ready? You do not feel ready to step forward? For some reading this, that may be their response. No problem! There is no judgement here, no “should” effect. If you will allow, let yourself know that the breakthrough out of the tunnel is there, even if all you see is a dot of light up ahead. Feel and sense that space out of the tunnel, that dot of light. By allowing yourself to know it is there, you come into this moment and connect with your deep knowing self. You move into this soul phase where you need to and that is wonderful in itself.
For others, you are celebrating this Breakthrough! You have been waiting for the dot of light to get bigger, climbing over dark places, reaching through crevices, pushing and pulling at whatever was needed to get through and expand. Congrats! You did not give up even if it was tough and even if it was intense. Now take that deep breath you are due and enjoy! Limitless love, light, and joy! Limitless soaring! Limitless life! Enter soul phase…
Enjoy your July moon month!

The Power of Love… When Love is the Way…
These were the two repeated phrases in the beautiful address to the wedding couple at the Royal Wedding on Saturday. Like some of you, I watched and enjoyed the spectacle and the pageantry of the Royals. It was nice to see something very joyous and positive on live television! I also noticed how this wedding was a testament to the couple being married, their lives, their goals, their wishes, their history, and who they are as individuals and as a couple starting life together. I wish them well, all the best, health, togetherness, companionship, and a life of joy and love.
The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church spoke fabulously to the couple, the church attendees, and the world. His words struck me then and still do as I watch him again. What an amazing wedding legacy to have these words recorded and given to all. I believe it is a gift the couple and the Bishop have brought us without possibly intending to on such a huge scale. I accept it and I carry it forward with me.
Here are the words that touched me the most. If it suits you and speaks to you, I suggest you taking the 14 minutes to watch (see the link below to watch). He is entertaining, the chapel is spectacular (I can attest to that having visited it), the couple is in love, and the audience is filled with royal and celebrity faces. People were brought to a point to reflect, to listen, to feel, and to have seeds planted. This is not always easy when it is out of our norm or comfort zone but it can be spectacular in its effect. I feel there is potential for great healing to come from this ceremony for those present and for those who were witness to it. I feel it reminds us of hope for our species and our world, and that each and every one of us have a part we play in this.
Excerpts from The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex:
“There's power in love. Don't underestimate it. Don't even over-sentimentalize it. There's power, power in love.
The reason has to do with the source. We were made by a power of love, and our lives were meant - and are meant - to be lived in that love. That's why we are here.
Where true love is found, God himself is there.
God is love.
There is power in love.
There is power in love to help and heal where nothing else can.
There is power in love to lift up and liberate when nothing else will.
There is power in love to show us the way to live…
Love your neighbour as yourself.
Love of God and Love of neighbour hang all the law, all the prophets,… everything that God has been trying to tell the world… Love God, love your neighbours, and while you are at it, love yourself.
Live that love, and in so doing to change not only their lives but the very life of the world itself.
Real power, power to change the world.
The good of the other, the well-being of the world…
Think and imagine a world where love is the way.
Imagine our homes and families when love is the way.
Imagine neighbourhoods and communities where love is the way.
Imagine governments and nations where love is the way.
Imagine business and commerce when is the way.
Imagine this tired old world when love is the way…
When love is the way, poverty will become history.
When love is the way, the earth will be a sanctuary.
When love is the way, we treat each other like we are actually family.
If humanity ever captures the energy of love, it will be second time in history that we have discovered fire. We must discover love, the redemptive power of love. When we do that we will make of this old world, a new world.”
