Truth

Daily Inspiration: Live truth instead of expressing it. ~Elbert Hubbard

Today’s Affirmation: Today I live exactly what my passion calls forth.

Today’s Contemplation: Your highest passion is your truth; go forth and be it.  Be good to yourself and be harmless to all others and you will discover the trajectory of your growth.  The obstacles to our desires will always reveal our way to embody the truth we desire.

Another

Daily Inspiration: Never think that you are more than another. ~Arthur Dobrin

Today’s Affirmation: Everyone is one of me for I am one of G. O. D.

Today’s Contemplation: Whatever is ‘One of you’ must be your equal in every way.  It may not perform the same tasks or do exactly the same thing with equal finesse because what it does is simply its expression; not its Oneness in the whole.  See all your relations in Oneness and experience freedom.

Smiles

Daily Inspiration: The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief. ~William Shakespeare

Today’s Affirmation: My Love is forever freely given; and anything without Love is nothing.

Today’s Contemplation: In every encounter give Love, in every interaction, animate or otherwise, first find the Love in your heart.  To the degree Love is found life is lived prosperously and relationships flourish; even amongst beggars, thieves and those with disease.

Barriers

Daily Inspiration: Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~Rumi

Today’s Affirmation: I look into my patterns and release them; the past is gone and love is revealed.

Today’s Contemplation: All of our patterns are built out of our interpretations of events from our collective and individual past.  Events that are determined by our limited perspectives, or as Rumi says, barriers.

Giving

Daily Inspiration: The habit of giving only enhances the desire to give. ~Walt Whitman

Today’s Affirmation: My life; the perfect example of Love realized through giving.

Today’s Contemplation: Divine generosity  leads to, always,  …more good.  Accept your good with all your giving.

Destiny

Daily Inspiration: It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves. ~William Shakespeare

Today’s Affirmation: I quit the blame game, own my life and make it right with loving-kindness today.

Today’s Contemplation: Owning one’s life means changing one’s life.  Changing one’s life means doing something different.  Do something different today, something that makes a difference out of you.

Solitude

Daily Inspiration: Loneliness is the poverty of self; solitude is the richness of self. ~Eleanore Marie Sarton

Today’s Affirmation: Wherever I go there God is; wherever I look, there I see God; whenever I’m alone God is with me.  I am Blessed.

Today’s Contemplation: Find the Divine within and you will never be alone again.  All that is necessary is to let go of the thought that you could ever be alone. Solitude; me in with God alone and all that Love.

Trust

Daily Inspiration: Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none. ~William Shakespeare

Today’s Affirmation: I trust the Divine in all I meet and give nothing to the confusion but pour forth my love.

Today’s Contemplation: There is only Love in all this world that lasts; so give your love. Yet every person wraps that love in a human body isolated and separate and protects it in a delusion of fear.  Give nothing to the fear neither substance nor energy but give right past it to their heart of Love.

Cost

Daily Inspiration: The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run. ~Henry David Thoreau

Today’s Affirmation: I give my whole self into all that is worthy of my love today.

Today’s Contemplation: When I learn to give my whole self into all that brings joy to me I discover there is nothing left to give to anything less than Love.  In that simple realization I pay the full price and set myself free.

Out

Daily Inspiration: We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. ~Alan Watts

Today’s Affirmation: I am here to discover ‘me’.  Today I take the challenge.

Today’s Contemplation: The experience of life is one of growth.  Can I be transformed by this experience?  That is the only question worthy of asking.  Each of us has come into this experience in order to learn first; and to the degree we are successful, to celebrate life.
