To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
- Confucius

"If we are holding on to anger, resentment, or fear, our hearts are blocked from feeling love and happiness. Often we are not even aware of what we are carrying within us; we just wonder why we don't feel more joyful. We go from day to day wondering if life will improve.
"We may feel down and depressed or we may feel energized by our anger; either way, anger blocks our path to peace.
"It's good to stop occasionally and take a personal inventory. Examine what it is that is keeping you from feeling at one with others, keeping you separated from God.
"I am taking time today to ask God to remove anything that is blocking me from feeling peace in my heart. If feels so good to know that with God's help, I can be free."
