First grade gets you ready for second grade and so on. Life is always getting you ready for the next level. Every experience you have in life is getting you ready for the next experience. Readiness is all.

Whatever you get yourself ready for, life will give you the opportunity to earn; it must be earned in order to be cherished.

Everyone must evolve or dissolve. It is your choice.

Always know you are in the training on this planet. At every age, you are being trained for the next level; somewhere out there, beneath the pale moonlight, someone's thinking of you and loving you tonight. Somewhere out there, someone's saying a prayer for you to make it through the training.

Try to get some sleep, because tomorrow starts the training.
