tropical paradise

Bliss Beach as it could be appreciated yesterday afternoon. Paya Bay Resort, Roatan, Bay Islands of Honduras.

joy attracts more joy

It is possible to be happy and joyful most of the time. You just have to look at little children and see their natural joy. You may say that little children are free and don't have anything to worry about, but you are free too! You are free to choose worry or to choose joy, and whatever you choose will attract exactly that. Worry attracts more worry. Joy attracts more joy.

video: if you come to utila

Cute, funny song and video about Utila, one of Roatan's sister islands in the Bay Islands of Honduras. Utila is considered the "party island," and is one of the cheapest places to get Scuba-certified in the world. As a result, the island, 20 miles west of Roatan, attracts a young, party-oriented segment of the tourism market. It's definitely a fun, crazy, charming island where everything goes!

Thelma, one of the resort dogs, stares intently at something that's caught her attention. I don't recall ever having known a dog with her particular eye color before.

become on the inside what you want on the outside

Happiness is a state of being, and comes from the inside of you. By the law of attraction you must become on the inside what you want on the outside.

You are either choosing to be happy now, or you are making up excuses for not choosing to be happy. But there are no excuses for the law!

from atlanta to roatan, with love

My good friend Michelle Groover of Atlanta, Georgia brought down dozens of book bags filled with school supplies to give to less fortunate local kids. This past Friday morning, we held a fun event here at Paya Bay to hand out the school supplies. We organized lively, competitive games like egg and "wheelbarrow" races for the kids. Over one hundred school-aged Roatan children received a backpack full of school supplies! What an awesome way to encourage kids to be excited about school!

As president of Members Auto Choice, Michelle (along with her husband, Dan Stryzinski) is actively involved with many charity organizations back in Georgia. This "From Atlanta With Love" event is Michelle and Dan's first formal outreach to the international community. She thinks it could become an annual event for them. Thank you so much, Ms. Groover! Love, love, love!

desire everything, need nothing

To desire something is in proper accordance with the law. You attract what you desire. To need something is misuse of the law. You cannot attract what you need if you feel you need it urgently or desperately, because that emotion contains fear. That kind of "needing" keeps things away.

Desire everything. Need nothing.
