“The quest for God is the quest for true happiness.” – Harold Klemp – The Language of Soul
Yeah, I don’t have anything to add to this one. This is what we are here to do.
Until Next time…
“A person with a golden heart is filled with love and likes to see something that he starts completed and done well.” – Harold Klemp – The Language of Soul
Have you ever done something well, just for the sake of doing it well? Have you ever done something well without any expectation of praise or feedback? This is what the golden heart is. It is about serving one’s fellow creatures without any expectations of praise or payback. You serve others to make their lives easier, more peaceful, and to take away some of their burdens.
Service can be as simple as listening to someone, picking up a piece of trash out of your neighbor’s lawn, petting an animal, smiling at a young child. The list goes on and on. I don’t remember where I read it, but the passage said that when times are tough on you and you have no idea where to turn–help someone. By helping someone else, you take your mind off of your troubles and make someone else’s day easier. This is really great advice. It has worked for me multiple times.
Serve others when you’re happy; serve others when you’re sad, especially when you’re sad. It will help you more than you could ever imagine.
Until next time…
“Become an expert in something. You need to be grounded in something. When you do something for God, for the highest principle, you do each step until it sings.” – Harold Klemp – The Language of Soul
We are all put on this Earth to contribute. We all come here with inherent talents that are uniquely our own. Harold Klemp stresses the need to do whatever you do for God. If you truly do this, you will do the very best you can. When you do this, you’ll feel a completeness within. This completeness is love.
Love what you do. Put love into all you do. To get love, you have to give it. Give it to every task you do and it will be returned to you.
“Every problem contains a solution. The key is self-discipline and surrender of the mental habits to the Holy Spirit.” – Harold Klemp – The Language of Soul
We are all faced with problems from time-to-time. Some of them are large problems that could take years to resolve, while others are small, but pesky issues that need to be handled quickly, and are normally out of our hair in a short amount of time. Some of our problems are caused due to health. Some are related to money issues. Others relate to our work or relationships.
As Harold Klemp states, there is always a solution to a problem. Sometimes when we are not ready to solve a problem, there are no answers forthcoming. This is due to our emotions getting in the way. When we are letting our emotions get the best of us, it is impossible to think. We cannot elevate our consciousness to clear thinking until we have gained control over our emotions or risen above them.
See you tomorrow!
“Those living the high spiritual life are the knowers, not believers. There is a world of difference between knowing and believing.” – Harold Klemp – The Language of Soul
Belief and knowing are infinitely apart. When one of us has a revelation, a memorable dream, or some other form of inner experience, it is sometimes very difficult to explain it to others. We try, but at times we’ll get strange looks or a “thanks for sharing, but…”
When you experience what is called knowingness, it is beyond the mind. It comes directly to you. When it does, you know in your heart that it is truth and a reality that is beyond explanation. The experience comes from deep within and you know that it is yours to treasure.

“If you fill your consciousness with the positive aspects of Divine Spirit, there is no vacuum where the negative may enter.” – Harold Klemp – The Language of Soul
Our mind is so focused on scanning our environment for danger that it is much easier for us to think negatively. Focusing on positive things is much more difficult and takes some discipline, particularly if you are trying to adjust your thoughts this way. One way that will work for you is using whomever you use as a focal point for your religious worldview. Whether you use Christ, Hari Krishna, Rumi, Confucius, Muhammad, or the Buddha, the effect will be the same.
I don’t know of anyone who can think negatively while keeping their mind on Christ or any other spiritually elevated individual in history. By keeping your attention on one of these spiritual giants (One that has special meaning to you), negative thoughts will leave you while you practice this exercise.
Once you begin the practice of focusing on the positive, your outlook will change. Things that may have bothered you in the past will no longer trouble you. You’ll feel a calmness begin to take over your being. You will relax.
Thanks for reading!

If you make a meal, put love into it instead of the frustrations of your day. Because whatever is put into the food is a reflection of what you have inside yourself, and it goes out to your family, it goes out to your friends. And it makes a very real difference. —Harold Klemp – The Language of Soul
This is a very important point. Love is the most important thing in this universe, but many only think about intimate love. The love this quote addresses is an impersonal love or the ability to wish everyone well around you. When you put love into a meal or any task for that matter, it makes a difference to those receiving the benefits of your labor.
Love changes the taste of the food, love changes the quality of the work, love converts everything to a better state.
I wish each you of you a wonderful day, filled with love!
See you tomorrow…

“Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.” – Stephen Hawking
“Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.” – Walter Elliot
“If you can dream something, you can do it. As long as you do not align your actions with your dreams, you are not fulfilling your destiny.” – Harold Klemp – The Language of Soul
Today’s quotes are all about perseverance, curiosity, and following your dreams. I felt these would be good quotes to offer in front of the weekend when all of us have a little more time than the frantic weekdays.
This weekend, dream a little. Think about where you’d like to be. Think about where you’d like to go and do. Once you come up with these things—be, do, and go. Come up with a plan to achieve who you want to be, to do the things you want to do, and go the places you want to go. Once your plan is in place, keep going, using small little increments to get there. It’s just that simple.
Have a great weekend everyone! I’ll post some more quotes on Monday!
Until next time…
