No Victims Allowed

Source of Inspiration


You are not a victim
of existence. You have
control of the reality
in which you live and
need only move to a
higher perception of
truth. All that we perceive,
including ourselves comes
from the mind of the Creator.

When the human mind is
locked in inaccurate beliefs
or emotions, it can interfere
with the true intention of Source.

We suffer because of our own
thought process. The true
nature of Source is the
highest form of Divin Love
for all that it creates. We
are imbues with the innate
ability to love unconditionally,
too. It is our desire and
intention which opens our
consciousness and hearts to
this understanding.

V ictims always have choices
I nitiate the changes needed
C all upon our Creator for help
T rust your inner guidance
I gnorance is no excuse
M ake your world what you want it to be
