Wonder

Daily Inspiration: May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder. ~John O’Donohue

Today’s Affirmation: I open my eyes to the miracle that this day is.

Today’s Contemplation: When one chooses to see the miracle that life is then it is revealed. In the moment, in the details, look to see the symmetry, the balance and the beauty; look for the blossoming of Love and Joy, the little bit of compassion and caring. It is all around.

Altar

Daily Inspiration: One eats in holiness and the table becomes an alter. ~Martin Buber

Today’s Affirmation: My every thought returns me to the holiest of Truth; I and the Infinite are One.

Today’s Contemplation: Every relationship with everyone and everything becomes an altar the moment an individual comes into the realization of Oneness.  For an altar is simply the point in consciousness where Love heals, resolves, dissipates every appearance of separation.  In that moment God is all that can be seen.

Values

Daily Inspiration: Let us be willing to take a new look at all values we hold dear to our hearts and have an open mind to all new thoughts, ideas and beliefs.  ~Gerald G. Jampolsky & Diane V. Cirincione

Today’s Affirmation: I live today for new ideas; I act on them for the Joy of Life Now.

Today’s Contemplation: It is the ideas we hold that define our lives.  If we want change we must be willing to let go of those ideas for new ones.  Fortunately when we are ready for those new ideas the answer lies in plain sight right in front of us…  And usually in the very challenge that is frustrating us and revealing our antiquated beliefs.

Holy

Daily Inspiration: I am Spirit, perfect, holy, harmonious.  Nothing can hurt me or make me sick or afraid, for Spirit is God, and God cannot be sick or hurt or afraid.  I manifest my real Self through this body now. ~H. Emilie Cady

Today’s Affirmation: The blessing of the Divine is upon me now and all good comes to me.

Today’s Contemplation: A split second may have saved my life yesterday.  Life is about Divine presence; if this is forgotten, whether you walk or work, there is no longer a life being lived.  Come to know your oneness at all times, feel Life, feel Joy, this is Your day today.

Love

Daily Inspiration: I have decided to stick with love.  Hate is too great a burden to bear. ~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Today’s Affirmation: My thought is on the beauty and my heart is filled with Love everywhere I look.

Today’s Contemplation: In order to stick with love we must learn to see the pure motive before it ever gets twisted; before it gets lost in duality.  When this is all that we see then beauty is all that remains and love is all that can be found.

Source

Daily Inspiration: The experience of separateness arouses anxiety; it is, indeed, the source of all anxiety. ~Erich Fromm

Today’s Affirmation: I move into Oneness and release all worries; I am in the embrace of the Divine today.

Today’s Contemplation: The experience of separation springs from the evidence of the five senses disconnected from the heart.  It can be an overwhelmingly lucid experience.  It will usually take complete surrender, a breakdown of logic, at least in the first breakthrough,  in order to ener into the full sense of Oneness.

Decision

Daily Inspiration: You don’t get to choose how you’re going to die. Or when.  You can only decide how you’re going to live. Now. ~Joan Baez

Today’s Affirmation:  Present in the moment is present enough.  I am fully present right here; right Now.

Today’s Contemplation: To be present, fully conscious, fully aware, in the moment is to be alive.  Anything else is not life; it is walking death.  Choose life today; be resent just for this moment that you remember.

Pleasure

Daily Inspiration: I can think of nothing less pleasurable than a life devoted to pleasure.

John D. Rockefeller

Today’s Affirmation:  Today I give into my heart and discover Life’s true magnificence.

Today’s Contemplation: When pleasure is of the senses there is nothing less fulfilling or pleasurable.  When pleasure is of the heart there is nothing more fulfilling.  Live for the joys of your soul and wean yourself of sense pleasures.

Discipline

Daily Inspiration: Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself. ~Abraham Joshua Heschel

Today’s Affirmation:  I say yes to more Love today; every time I say no to indulgence.

Today’s Contemplation: Every ‘indulgence’ is an identification with a personal belief that you are, ‘I am’, separate from the one life force.  It is a negative affirmation to the psyche and another promise of misery.  Thus indulgence is where addiction truly begins and its remedy is in Love given and received.

Passion

Daily Inspiration: The things that will destroy us are: politics without principle; pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; and worship without sacrifice. ~Mohandas K. Gandhi

 

Today’s Affirmation:  I bring God into all I do for Love is all I Am.

Today’s Contemplation: We must find heart in what we do.  Whatever it is there needs to be a sense of passion in it.  I n order to thrive there must be Love in every breath we take and every action that is taken.  Find your passion and live a very full life.
