Prayer Does Not Require Belief in God, or A God, or Any God

Many people do not pray because they do not believe in God, or a God, or any God.

But prayer does not require belief in a God.

Praying for someone to overcome misfortune or ill health or to wish them good fortune only requires that you believe that the good you feel in your heart will connect with the good in the hearts of others.

Be Practical & Expect Miracles If You Just Take The First Step Forward Every Day

Be Practical & Expect Miracles if you just take the first step forward every day.” – Richard Edward Ward

Be practical and expect miracles if you just take the first step forward every day

Everything Begins with Just Taking the First Step Forward

Everything begins with just taking the first step forward….every day.

It does not matter how small the first step is.

But it does matter that we do take that first step forward and that we do this every day.

The first step forward today could simply be getting out of bed. Or maybe, you have been thinking about starting a new project, but you haven’t yet written the first word or put the first design to paper.

Just Take the First Step

Just take the first step forward today. Take the first step forward… NOW.

Be Practical & Expect Miracles if you just take the first step forward every day.” – Richard Edward Ward


The Sacred Is In The Ordinary

The sacred is in the ordinary…it is to be found in one’s daily life, in one’s neighbors, friends, and family, in one’s own backyard…travel may be a flight from confronting the scared–this lesson can be easily lost. To be looking elsewhere for miracles is to me a sure sign of ignorance that everything is miraculous.”
Abraham Maslow

Abraham Harold Maslow was an American psychologist who was best known for creating Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a theory of self-actualization.
