Julie Hutslar's June 2013 Quarterly Newsletter

Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. They are performed by those who temporarily have more for those who temporarily have less.

Love will immediately enter into any mind that truly wants it.

The search for love is but the honest searching out of everything that interferes with love.

What you would hide is hidden from you.

Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.

Every choice you make establishes your own identity as you will see it and believe it is.

Has the Spring sprung in you?

What does it take for spring to come to your heart? Is it enough to see life giving green thrusting growth all around you? To see flowers bursting color and fragrance, to feel the stormy winds shake things up, the birds proclaiming their love through song and dance?
What brings spring to you? What makes you feel younger, more vibrant, healthier, lighter, more playful? How long has it been since you have done those things, thought those thoughts, been those ways?
Yesterday my husband and I saw a woman we knew from a local business that we had always enjoyed and she came running up to us like a 10 year old! I thought we had something falling out of the truck, she looked so intent upon gaining our attention. But come to find out, she had retired. She had taken her rig to Arizona, met new friends, enjoyed the winter in warmer weather, ridden her ATV, sold her old truck for a new car and gotten a short hair cut. She looked easily 20 years younger! We were amazed, she glowed with health and vibrancy. She was doing and being everything she wanted to.
But you don’t have to wait until you retire. You can put the lift back in your step. It is called JOY! What brings you joy? Who brings you joy? And bigger question, what prevents you from choosing joy over obligation? Think about it like this: it is your vibration that is either part of the problem of humanity or part of the solution, not what you DO, but what you vibrate with. So if you carry the burden of responsibility and dread, obligation and duty, are you part of the solution? What if you brought joy into the world, what would you be offering then?
Choose joy today. Activate the part of your heart that holds that for you, no matter how long it has been since you have accessed it. Open it up, start thinking about what you love, what you enjoy, what makes you feel wonderful and do/be/engage in it!!

If you haven’t already checked out my new web page, please make a point to! My brilliant and tenacious husband recreated what I was hoping for without any previous knowledge of this new format and spent about 4 months solid on it. It is rich with many photos of the retreat center, the retreats, the workshops, the art and is so inviting. Without even making a choice what to click on, you can sit and be surrounded by such a warm and wonderful feeling! And best of all is a new interactive blog. I invite you to share your comments, opinions or questions. Please enjoy the entire catalog of offerings and resources. I welcome your feedback. Thanks so much!

"This is my “depressed stance”.  When you’re depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand.  The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you’ll start to feel better.  If you’re going to get any joy out of being depressed, you’ve go to stand like this."   – Charlie Brown
"One joy scatters a hundred griefs."   – Chinese proverb
"My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it’s on your plate."   – Thornton Wilder
"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."   – Walt Disney
"You had the power all along my dear."   – Glinda the Good Witch.
Let this be your new intention for today: I choose only that which will bring me joy today!
