The following is from one of Mr. LePar's lectures presented many years ago. We have a book of these and I thought that this segment would be of interest.
This is the part where I think you can help me, you can help the world, and you can help yourself.
I want to tell you a very simple way of starting the activity of the God Consciousness in you. The first thing you do when you get up in the morning before you put your little toes out on that cold floor is just lie there a split second longer and start your day with a little prayer. I’d like to share a little prayer with you that you are welcome to use. It goes this way: "Infinite Father, source of all love and light. Accept my endeavors and accomplishments this day as a sincere effort and desire to accept my own true godly state which you have ordained for me. Let my efforts and my accomplishments be songs of praise and glory and look upon me as your loving child." Now that’s a two sentence prayer. You don’t have to verbalize. You just have to think of a prayer and you don’t even need anything that fancy. All you have to say is: "Accept me as I am and guide me through this day".
What does this particular prayer say? First of all, you recognize that there is an Essence above you. You acknowledge the fact that you are part of that Essence. You acknowledge the fact that you have an ordained place in that Essence. You acknowledge the fact that you may not be perfect and you may not be able to do the godly things that you are capable of doing but because you realize the great love of this Creator you are placing your faith that He will accept what you can do with what you have to work with. You do not keep your accomplishments just for yourself, but you look upon these accomplishments as songs and praises to your Divine Source. What are you doing? Are you saying there’s an old man up there and by His good graces, by doing good, that’s going to be the song and praise? No, what you are saying is all the good you do you are sending out to others through this Divine Source, so you are uniting yourself with yourself. You are uniting yourself with your spiritual brothers and sisters and you are uniting yourself with the Divine Creator. It’s the first thing you want to do in the morning.
As soon as you finish your morning prayer, and it only takes a minute or less, try to set in your mind to accomplish one little good thing that day. That’s all. Just one simple little good thing, a smile or a hello to someone is an example but I am sure that you can discover many other little things to accomplish.

The Council: If you are fortunate to have someone who loves you, do all that you can do to protect that love, to return it regardless of the cost to you, for in your day true love is at a premium price, for so little of it exists. Do nothing to jeopardize that love just to satisfy your own self-seeking pleasures and ego, for you never know it may be your only opportunity for true happiness. When you love someone, you fulfill their needs, you make strong their weak points as they will make strong your weak points, and you relish in their strength as they should relish in yours. Many times those that we love, due to the course of their life, whether it be their fault or the way life is dealt to them or presented to them, some of those individuals carry deep scars. Take into consideration these scars, these old wounds, attempt to put the balm of love or the salve of love over that scar tissue so that it heals and becomes anew. Those that you love, make them feel secure in your love. It might be necessary to repeat over and over your love for the individual. Do so. It's of no cost to you, yet such thoughtfulness, such caring, such compassion, and such understanding can bring great rewards for so little effort, because in so doing you help that person to feel safe. What is love? Love is everything that you can imagine that is good. It is the desire to make whole another individual by filling in all the cracks and crevices, all the holes, all the broken edges that life may have chipped away.
Fill your mate with love, help that person to bloom and your reward will be one of the finest thrones ever imaginable by the mind of man in the heavens above. Speak of garlands -- Complete one individual with your love, make one individual feel secure and happy and you wear the greatest crown possible. Love and commitment are the essence of creation. The Divine Presence when He brought all this, as you understand, into being, the motivating wish behind your creation was a Love that would be full and complete, a commitment to provide every opportunity possible for you as one of His children, as one of His creations, to be totally secure and full and complete, enveloped in the purest of all loves. You, as you are now, cannot create or give in the same quantity as this Divine Essence can but you can come very, very close in quality, and this can be achieved very simply by thinking about the person you profess to love, thinking about them before you think about yourself and your mundane, puny, little life. For what you give, what you do to help make an individual whole will be returned to you either now or hopefully in your experiences beyond the physical.
