Friendship

Daily Inspiration: False friendship, like the ivy, decays and ruins the walls it embraces; but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports. ~Sir Richard Burton

Today’s Affirmation: I am fully present; I am loving-kindness, with every person I meet today.

Today’s Contemplation: Friendship is about actually caring enough to be fully present. It is an effortless product of knowing ones completeness in any given moment and can be equally given to all for in truth we are all one.

Open

Today’s Quote: The important thing is not to stop questioning. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: My mind is wide open to possibilities today; in every situation there is another solution… and I realize it.  I am Brilliant!.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Never underestimate the incredible intelligence you are.  Just remember wherever you go God goes for God is all there is.  And wherever God is every answer is expressing.

Friendship

Today’s Quote: The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love. ~Hubert H. Humphrey

Today’s Affirmation: I give into love today and let every smile be for friendship.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Only as I give into the urge for love and friendship when the world would tell me different do I discover the rich and supportive true nature of life.  I have to first give it in order to receive it and the more I give the more complete the tapestry of love my life will be.

Praise

Today’s Quote: A little praise goes a great ways. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today’s Affirmation: I praise my life, I raise my life, in the name of love.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Emerson could as easily have said; ‘A little praise GROWS a great ways.’  Whatever quality is blessed with more praise than condescension increases to the degree that it is appreciated; every person who receives genuine praise as a person becomes a better person. In fact all that is living will grow with praise, even the plants in our gardens and the water we drink.

Youth

Today’s Quote: We can’t always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

Today’s Affirmation: I teach the values I live by today; Gratitude, Joy, Enthusiasm and Generosity.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The only true teacher is the one who lives their truth with passion. We all teach by example and the only lesson we teach is the lesson of love. Anyone can teach scholastic knowledge in a very short time, only one who is passionate can truly transform the heart and mind of a child. All other teaching is insignificant and even counterproductive without passion at the helm.

Seeing

Today’s Quote: Angry people want you to see how powerful they are… Loving people want you to see how powerful You are. ~Chief Red Eagle

Today’s Affirmation: The greatness in every person makes my world wonderful today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: A person doesn’t need to be great in order to do a great thing; just have a good moment in the perfect circumstance.  And our appreciation is the impetus of love that inspires that good in another to show up in the perfect conditions.  And every instant is that perfect convergence of events … Always.

Today’s Quote: Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will. ~George Bernard Shaw

 

Today’s Affirmation: My imagination is fertile and my life is rich; all is good in my world today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: There are but three stages to creation: Imagination, expectancy and outcome.  There is no will involved except Divine Will; there is certainly no effort involved.  Expectancy is the passion that plays the game before the field is even prepared.  It sees itself at the top when others only see clouds; no effort, no will.

Today’s Quote: The man who makes no mistakes does not usually make anything. ~Theodore Roosevelt

 

Today’s Affirmation: I venture forth today trusting my inner whisper of love.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Because most individuals are not accustomed to listening to the whisper of their soul new ventures usually seem to be great risks.  In such moments of stepping forward we do well to put our whole faith in the outcome achieved.  There is no room for wavering because mental shifting opens the mind to an ever present pressure of social, racial and cultural doubt and fear.  If we stay fixed we remain strong and success is our guarantee.

Today’s Quote: Hope is the power of being cheerful in circumstances which we know to be desperate. ~G. K. Chesterton

 

Today’s Affirmation: The cycles of all life are the cycles of my life today; peace-beauty-joy-creativity… peace-beauty-joy-creativity, right now, everyday in every way.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: ‘Hope’ absolutely recognizes the seasons and knows that with every dark hour there must be a new day dawning. ‘Hope’ trusts that ‘I’ will wake up to see that day just as I have a thousand times before. ‘Hope’ is the most powerful tool enabling any individual to start any long journey to transformation.

Today’s Quote: The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best. ~Epictetus

 

Today’s Affirmation: Goodness attracts goodness; I am surrounded by only the best.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The process to surrounding ourselves with great people is to see the greatness in every person. In so doing we draw out their brilliance and create an attractor factor that draws an increasing measure of excellence to our every encounter.  It is not an accident; rather it is the perseverance of positivity.
