“If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times.

― John O’Donohue,

Say “I love you”, “I’m sorry”, “I appreciate you”, “I’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling.

“The gift you carry for others is not an attempt to save the world but to fully belong to it. It’s not possible to save the world by trying to save it. You need to find what is genuinely yours to offer the world before you can make it a better place. Discovering your unique gift to bring to your community is your greatest opportunity and challenge. The offering of that gift – your true self – is the most you can do to love and serve the world And it is all the world needs.” ~ Bill Plotkin


“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.”

“Acceptance of our feelings is the sweetest and simplest key to change I know. With it, sadness transmutes to compassion, fear turns into excitement, and anger morphs into inner strength. Take a moment to Open…. Breathe…. Feel…. Smile “with your heart” and you will discover the light inside every uncomfortable emotion. Resisting feelings is no solution. De-clutch from resistance and your heart naturally surrounds every feeling with love.” ~Michael Alperstein



Joy is the rediscovery of the inner feeling of flight, or music, or silence, or dance, or magic. Waking up spiritually is the rediscovery that the feeling you get from any one of those things is not separate from you. You are flight, music, silence, dance, magic.

The “doubter” in you will NEVER know this. The “knower” in you will NEVER doubt it.

Don’t think about it. Feel it.

Deep breath…


Michael Alperstein
