God gives to us, we give back to God. What do we get out of it? Peace, peace, eternal peace and internal peace. Inner peace and ever peace, and then whatever we touch is peace. If your inner voice is at the same frequency in which you are, you are visited by Almighty God all the time. The harmony between the inner voice and the human is guaranteed and makes you totally divine.

Please hold the breath and pray sincerely. Let it go. Inhale again, hold the breath dear to your heart, near to your heart, and please pray for the peace and prosperity of all you know and don’t know. Let it go. Breathe again, hold it dear to your heart, near to your heart and please pray, please pray for peace and prosperity of the known and the unknown, of the friends and the foes together.
