Difficulties

Daily Inspiration: Difficulties increase the nearer we get to the goal. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Today’s Affirmation: I recognize the joy and release the challenge. My path is laid upon my heart and all turns to good today.

Today’s Contemplation: Difficulties are natural. They are the process of stretching into the unknown.  Everyone with a dream is stretching into the unknown.  And the nearer we get to the dream the more we move into the unknown which simply means more challenges to be moved through.

Success

Daily Inspiration: There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure. ~Colin Powell

Today’s Affirmation: I have learned and I have grown; today I claim my success.

Today’s Contemplation: Every moment is a success over the last when one proceeds knowing that God work is happening. Every step brings greater joy as one walks in that presence.

Listen

Daily Inspiration: We connect through listening. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well intentioned words. ~Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.

Today’s Affirmation: I listen deeply, with my heart and soul.  I listen to my friends, to the whispers in the wind; I listen to Spirit wherever I go.

Today’s Contemplation: I have learned to listen; to the words, Yes, and to something deeper.  Every word carries a subtle vibration of the intention back of it; the gift of Love or the call for Love.

Past

Daily Inspiration: We can draw lessons from the past, but we cannot live in it. ~Lyndon B. Johnson

Today’s Affirmation: I take the best of this moment now and make it better.  And that is the Power of my Love.

Today’s Contemplation: The past is simply a memory of how we would choose to live. Make the choice to make it better and let go of the rest; this is what growth is about, this is what life is about, and this is what happiness is about.

Resiliance

Daily Inspiration: We are stronger, gentler, more resilient, and more beautiful than any of us imagine. ~Mark Nepo

Today’s Affirmation: I see the radiance within that makes every person beautiful; I love all my companions on this path today.

Today’s Contemplation: At the heart of every being there is pure brilliance. The only question is how to remove the shell of nothingness that never belonged.  If any brother or sister fails to be magnificent in my eyes then I have failed.  I must choose to see that magnificence and let it shine.

I Know My Wholeness

There is an Infinite, Absolute and All Encompassing Power that truly exists transcendent of my consciousness. It exists through all life as Life. It exists beyond the spectrum of human awareness into the fullness of every measure of infinity.  And It is fully present in me, through me, as me; I am the individualization of infinite intelligence right here where I am.

In this awareness I am filled with the knowledge of my wholeness. I recognize this Divine Potential of my being and I stretch into greater activity in this unlimited potentiality. I step beyond the limitations of the human condition.  I am no longer fooled by shallow and mesmerizing appearances of duality. I am anchored in the truth of my Oneness, I am grounded in the vision of my heart.  I see oneness wherever I look. I see Oneness and demonstrate the affluence of Wholeness.

In this moment of Wholeness I am looking upon the face of God. I am looking in awe and wonder. I am looking in complete surrender and feeling the fullness of that blessing for in Wholeness I feel the perfect alignment of knowing that the Infinite has heard and responded. Every measure of Wholeness is mine already.

And So It Is

Today’s Affirmation:  I am in Integrity with Life today and am One of this circle of Love Now.

Crew
