Different

Daily Inspiration: If you want things to be different, perhaps the answer is to become different yourself. ~Norman Vincent Peale

Today’s Affirmation: I look within and find the old routines today and from my heart I build a new way of Oneness and Joy.

Today’s Contemplation: The ways we think determine the patterns of our lives for all patterns (or conditions) arise from our thoughts. Those patterns (beliefs) are most easily recognized by the beliefs we hold. Enter within, find the feeling that is less than Love, follow it to the causative belief and thought, and change that thought, change that belief, discover a new feeling and a new experience.

Beauty

Daily Inspiration: Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old. ~Franz Kafka

Today’s Affirmation: I see the magnificence that life is. Every detail is a thing of beauty and a cause for celebration.

Today’s Contemplation: Each day the senses are blessed with a stimulation of beauty. Yet it is of little value if the heart does not see it. Open your heart to the wonder of every moment and let your life be enriched.

Begin

Daily Inspiration: Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today’s Affirmation: I embrace my new day with absolute joy for I know I am divinely covered for another great day.

Today’s Contemplation: Every moment is new and that is wonderful because new is where the Divine steps in; and the Divine is always good. Let go, accept your good and be the one you’d choose to be today.

Network

Daily Inspiration: All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality. ~Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today’s Affirmation: My life is integrated with the whole; I am One in the joy of every life..

Thoughts

Daily Inspiration: Everyone is overridden by thoughts; that’s why they have so much heartache and sorrow. ~Rumi

Today’s Affirmation: I let go of every thought and let peace suffuse my soul today.

Today’s Contemplation: All thoughts out of alignment with Oneness, with Love, require energy.  This energy is like a bank account that when depleted goes into debt where interest needs to be paid.  That interest could be called “heartache and sorrow”.

Listen

Daily Inspiration: When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen. ~Ernest Hemingway

Today’s Affirmation: I listen deeply; to every word and every feeling.  I hear the deeper call for love today.

Today’s Contemplation: All communication is a call for community, to belong, to be loved.  When you are listening hear this deeper call and respond to it.  You will truly build bridges when you do this.

Seeking

Daily Inspiration: He who seeks God under settled form lays hold of the form, while missing the God concealed in it. ~Meister Eckhart

Today’s Affirmation: I look to the heart of everyone I meet and there discover God.

Respect

Daily Inspiration: A human being is not to be handled as a tool but is to be respected and revered. ~Felix Adler
