Enjoyment

Daily Inspiration: We must enjoy each day–one at a time. We are here on a short visit. Be sure to smell the flowers. ~Alfred A. Montapert

Today’s Affirmation: In every hour of every day I return to this moment of my Joy.

Today’s Contemplation: Enjoyment of the day is a personal choice that forever transcends the events of the day.  In the midst of the challenges learn to give in to the joy. Only then can you truly experience a life of happiness.

Strength

Daily Inspiration: You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Today’s Affirmation: I rise up a step above the fear and go ahead with my dreams today.

Today’s Contemplation: When we enter into the pursuit of our dreams with a spirit of expectancy we discover, once we have proven to ourselves our commitment, that all events conspire with us for a success greater than any expectation we had previously held.

A Deeper Love

I reach into the very heart of my heart and realize that I am in the midst of All That Is. The greater contains and permeates the lesser and the lesser is filled to overflowing. I am the lesser, yet I am absolutely complete for all that I am is of that greatness, that eternal perfection.

In this moment I delve into those depths and discover that my nature is Love.  This is all that I am. I realize that my capacity for giving transcends with every loving gesture.  I choose to bring joy into each moment and every encounter.  I choose to be present with the ones I love.  I choose to love more completely all who are in my presence. I delve deeply into that sacred place within and discover the tools to cast away anger and fear forever. I give my mind permission to explore my heart and discover how Love can always be present in Its fullest capacity. I give my mind permission to surrender to my heart, to allow the presence of Love to reveal the full potential of Love’s great Joy; to be in laughter, gladness and heartfelt compassion in every moment. I choose to plumb the depths of my divinity and to live fully and completely from there.

I choose to celebrate now; to celebrate my achievement of every word decreed here.  I choose to celebrate the Divine giver of Life; All Life. I celebrate with gratitude upon my soul and thanks upon my lips for I know beyond knowing that my decree is the pleasure of the Creator and in the surrender that I offer up now it is done.

And So It Is

Affirmation: I look deeply at all I see, and there I find God looking back at me.

Release

Daily Inspiration: If you don’t like where you are in life, there comes a point when you must give up the part of you that’s keeping you back. ~Dr. Sonya Friedman

Today’s Affirmation: I let go of every thought of separation. Today I embrace my Oneness.

Today’s Contemplation: Steps are not always big nor even noticeable to the world at large.  Sometimes the biggest steps will be the words you whisper in your heart; “I can do this, I will do this, I am doing this now.” Have faith that what you whisper to your heart is heard and that a power greater than you is already fulfilling your desire.

Yourself

Daily Inspiration: You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. ~Buddha

Today’s Affirmation: I love myself exactly as I am today.

Today’s Contemplation: It is good to acknowledge what we deserve but such acknowledgement is empty without clear action.  Do for yourself, be kind to yourself, be gentle with yourself. And at the end of the day be able to say “I have loved myself today.”

Intuition

Daily Inspiration: You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself. ~Alan Alda

Today’s Affirmation: I stretch into and discover my true self today.

Today’s Contemplation: Always one must stretch with intuition. Nothing comes except by consciousness and consciousness must always grow with intuition; that is its nature.

Laughter

Daily Inspiration: Let there be more joy and laughter in your living. ~Eileen Caddy

Today’s Affirmation: I choose to play my way to the top today.

Today’s Contemplation: Joy and laughter walk hand in hand with fulfillment. One must let the barriers down and innocence in if one would truly know fulfillment. Let your laughter out to play today.

Deeds

Daily Inspiration: Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds. ~Buddha

Today’s Affirmation: My inheritance tomorrow is in the deeds of Love I do today.

Today’s Contemplation: Choose with some consideration how you give for it is the how not the what that makes a gift.

This Occasion Lifts Me

Central to every life is the Infinite Life. It is the Innermost and the Uppermost, all encompassing and all embracing. It is the Intelligence back of and permeating every life as every life, fully present and completely individualized. It is the Unity that is the full expression of my oneness; that which guarantees that I am the power in my life. And every moment of my being is a God moment made manifest through my willingness.  I am the microcosm of the macrocosm and all that It is is my potential.

I recognize now that with such a Power back of me, lifting me, that my success in life is guaranteed. I recognize that right here and now I have all that I need; all the tools, all the resources, all the support and all the time necessary to live the life that I would choose to live. To become the person I would choose to become. I am the microcosm in perfect accord with the macrocosm and I do all that is called for right now to create my heaven on earth. I do it because I know it and this occasion elevates me into my Joy.

My life is a celebration of gratitude to the magnificence of the Divine that has given all before ever it was requested; that has fulfilled this word before it was spoken. And so in this whelming joy I surrender this word as I give over to the dream made manifest. Thank you God.

And So It Is

Affirmation: It is Good, It is God, and So It Is for Me.

Creative

Daily Inspiration: Since new developments are the product of a creative mind, we must stimulate and encourage that type of mind in every way possible. ~George Washington Carver

Today’s Affirmation: I think Divine ideas and conspire with the Universe for their unfolding today.

Today’s Contemplation: Every one of us is plugged into an infinite wellspring of creativity.  But to use it we must first believe that it is ours to use. Second we must develop the self esteem to bring forth the creative idea. Third we must be willing to do the work until that new idea blossoms in our minds. In the process of bringing forth this creative richness one must do the last step first and allow the first step to come last.
