Creating a new mind is like cultivating a garden. The manifestations you produce from the garden of your mind will be just like crops from the earth’s soil. Dr. Joe Dispenza

The Divine created each person to be happy. There was no other intention. But given mankind’s use of free choice, happiness is not always the destiny – often because of individual choices made. However, it’s never too late to change – change what you think, feel or do.
