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:  I choose laughter and joy in my day today.

Today's Contemplation:  The mastery of Zen is to be fully present, fully conscious, in the moment.  We all want to live ‘fully alive’ in every moment yet few of us have such presence of mind.  True joy is not found in having good experiences, it is found in being fully present in the experience, in consciously choosing our relationship to the experience.

Daily Inspiration: 
You have brains in your head. 
You have feet in your shoes. 
You can steer yourself,
Any direction you choose!   
~Author Unknown

Today’s Affirmation:  I am an inspiration through my loving words and action.  

Today's Contemplation:  What a deadly action it is to give wisdom and love through hurtful and sarcastic words.  Through such actions we dispose of the gift we are seeking to give and cause unintentional rifts between ourselves and others.  We all have the capacity to listen to our words before we speak them.  We all have the capacity to bring love to every situation.
