YES! Exactly. It only takes a thought, a dream. I'm a believer that we always work towards our dreams somehow, even if unconsciously. Thank you, Paul :)

Thanks. Well, my interpretation is taking each feeling, thought or action to the next level--listening is superior to hearing. Feeling is superior to touching, etc.
Date: 4/26/2017 11:17:00 AM
Great simple words in the right place just to touch where needed. Thanks Elle
