Sides

Today’s Quote: Even a sheet of paper has two sides. ~Japanese Proverb

Today’s Affirmation: I am free of judgment today because I know in my heart what my senses can never see; We Are One.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The nature of humanity is duality and will always lead to suffering when left in control. One must let go of the tapestry in order to stand back and see the whole picture.  Likewise the spiritual devotee must release all identification with the belief in separation.  This is the role of the spiritual journey and the only way to free oneself of duality and experience lasting joy.

Diversity

Today’s Quote: We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry

are equal in value no matter what their color. ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation: I rejoice in every celebration finding appreciation for diversity in my heart and relationships today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: It is no wonder that we grow old and die when our every action is to take from life in order to have life. There is but one life so any act that detracts from another takes from our own spiritual bank account and leaves us bankrupt before we have discovered life.  Make life a giving today and remember it through this month.

Blessings

Today’s Quote: There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from. ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Today’s Affirmation: I am blessed today to be free to live my life more completely.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: To maintain a mental atmosphere that, ‘Only good can come of this happening’, because, ‘I know that good is all there is’, is all that will be necessary in order to turn most confusing events into great transitions.  It is simply an act of faith in the innate nature of life to support life.  It has been doing this through all conscious memory and must be doing this now, even in this apparent uncertainty.

Today’s Quote: With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Today’s Affirmation: I am Alive with the possibilities of this day today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Open up to a new idea.  The only thing keeping any of us stuck in our present situation is an overarching identification with our past.  A new opportunity awaits each of us the moment we break ties with the way we and our world have come to see us.  Today is rich with possibilities yet it will be up to you to seize a new one and claim a greater experience.  Now is your time and you can do it.

Caring

Today’s Quote: If you find in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded. ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation: I love all I see because I love me and in all I see I look back at me.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In the realization that God, Life, Infinite Intelligence, is One comes the awareness that ‘I am one with That’.  From there the searching soul realizes that every life is that One Life individualizing and each is one with all others.  In such awareness fear and conflict disappear replaced entirely by caring, compassion and love.

Gratitude

Today’s Quote: Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind. ~Lionel Hampton

Today’s Affirmation: I surrender my thoughts today and allow my heart to lead me.  All is well in my life.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The memory of the heart is free of judgment because it is simply feelings.  It knows no values; right or wrong, past or future, here or there, because feelings can only be fully present. As such every feeling is a word in the language of Love and Love forever returns to gratitude for they are one.  The intellect, the mind, is developed in the physical and ends with the physical; to the degree it moves to forgiveness, gratitude and appreciation during a ‘life’ the soul evolves and love can truly be experienced.

Things Come Together

Life comes together in perfect harmony every time, every way and everywhere because life is all there is.  It is the harmonized perfection of the One in Love with all that It is.  And It is all that I am.  I am the synchronous expression of the One Life individualizing perfectly.  I am all of that infinite poured into the intentions of my heart and bursting forth in harmonious expression; I am the word and my word is the law unto my affairs now.

I speak my word with the authority of indivisible supremacy and it takes hold upon the most insignificant details of my experience. Every apparent disparate event is drawn into the masterpiece of the One unified vision; Love. Every seeming coincidence finds its place in the orchestration of my life and affairs.  Every person arrives in the perfect moment, every dollar and every deed is already present right where it belongs for the unfolding of this symphony called life and I am the master conductor reading the Divine Score perfectly; One Life, One Love, One Expression and That I Am.

I rejoice and celebrate this fullness that my life is now. I breathe in peace as I see how details have come together in perfect harmony and I give thanks to the Master Hand at the helm of my soul that so perfectly has inspired my every action.  And to this I give over, knowing the power of creation at play. It is done.

And So It Is

Affirmation:  I put my word to action Now; and create a brand new Life.

Telling

Today’s Quote: Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty. ~Sicilian Proverb

Today’s Affirmation: I speak my dreams and desires from love today; I am heard with perfect clarity.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Before engaging in emotionally charged interactions it is always valuable to assess our own desired outcomes. Questions like: “What emotional charge am I bringing to this sharing?”, “What have I witnessed unfolding and how has that affected my feelings?” and, “What do I realistically desire as an outcome of this encounter?” will create authenticity in our communications.   Such clarity in ourselves and transparency with others will not necessarily get us the things we want but it will almost always give us healthier and happier relationships; which is our souls only desire.

Watch

Today’s Quote: Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. ~Elizabeth Lawrence

Today’s Affirmation: I am at perfect peace in the gap between the dream and the demonstration.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: We first have the dream, it is a complete vision of an emotional outcome often replete with all the trappings of a physical image.  A true dream, a vision, comes complete with the urge to bring it into form, the urge to embody it. Yet always there is a gap between the dream, the urge and the manifestation. In that gap it does us well to remember the orchestration of the Infinite upon the composition of our vision.  A greater hand than ours is at work and can only fail if we fail to continue believing.

Inside

Today’s Quote: To heal from the inside out is the key. ~Wynonna Judd

Today’s Affirmation: I let go of my wounds and return to Love today.  I am complete and whole Now.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: To truly heal we must let go of the wounded child within.  We must let go of every time we told ourselves we were inadequate, insignificant, inappropriate or in any other way ‘In’ conflict with our truth of Love; our Divine perfection.  We have been the only ones who have ever incarcerated, institutionalized or incapacitated our joy and health in any way.  Today would be the perfect day to begin to set ourselves free and find our true INNOCENCE.
