Today’s Quote:  May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions. ~Joey Adams

 

Today’s Affirmation: I live from my being and let all my agendas slip away.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: New Years resolutions are almost universally based on judgments, who we think we should be, what we should have and how we should behave.  They take a major force of will to uphold and so, when our will power falters they fail.  And nothing has changed.  Wouldn’t it be better to choose simply to be authentic in who we are?  We would do better choosing to live our lives in the moment; honouring and being transparent with our feelings and owning them without blame or projection.  If we did this we would soon discover that happiness is the only feeling even remotely interesting or worthy of our energy.  We would no longer have troubles, we would only have opportunities.

I choose to relax into my authentic self this year and return to this centre if ever I find myself forgetting.

Today’s Quote:  You may give them your love, but not their thoughts for they have their own thoughts. ~Kahlil Gibran

 

Today’s Affirmation: My only thought is love; I choose love today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The only advice beyond reproach is the reminder that you are loved beyond even your greatest comprehension. I choose thoughts of love today and allow myself to be a vessel of love.

Today’s Quote: If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each person’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

Today’s Affirmation: I hear the call and I respond with love.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every person who attacks is feeling hurt.  Their hurt may be complicated and deep, it may be justified, it may be simple confusion.  We do not need to know the hurt or its cause; it is always ultimately a belief in an enemy which in a Universe of Oneness is insanity.  And the only answer that can correct insanity is completely unselfish love.

Today’s Quote: No man is a failure who is enjoying life. ~William Feather

 

Today’s Affirmation: My inner glow sets my world on fire today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: One cannot enjoy life when one is lost in self.  We are destined, called and urged to engage in life, in relationship and in the discovery of beauty in all.  The less we are lost in ourselves as little remote islands and the more we see our oneness with all life invisible and transcendent the more easily we shall discover that beauty and joy.  It’s ours to have but still we must choose to take it.  Your call to life is to say yes to it today.

Today’s Quote: Why not learn to enjoy the little things – There are so many of them. ~Anonymous

 

Today’s Affirmation: The greatest of my good is happening right now.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: All great events are the cumulative result of many small and wonderful events where someone was fully present and focused.  With that awareness I choose to engage fully with my environment (friends, family and all the things) in order to realize the potential for joy.

Today’s Quote: Wisdom is learning what to overlook. ~William James

 

Today’s Affirmation: I don’t ignore!  I simply see the truth.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: There is one life; and every person is living that one life.  It is when the appearances of separation (every aspect of physicality) dissolves and energy of ones becomes palpable and visible that we start to discover how magnificent and lovable every life truly is.  It is also then that individuals everywhere start seeing you as their friend and family in this life game.  Wisdom always demonstrates this ‘One’ Life.

Today’s Quote: The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but hold hands. ~Alexander Penney

 

Today’s Affirmation: Resistance makes me stronger as I stretch to see the perfection of all.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: There will never be a disagreement in any experience of joy; it is a feeling that is universally energizing and uplifting.  Disagreement can only be established around limitation.  Let go of your limiting idea and move into the abundance of life, that place where joy is always present and you will find disagreement impossible to find.  The only challenge to getting there is in committing to a new path completely.

On This Christmas I commit to a higher path and I wish you the best of this year.

Today’s Quote: Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts. ~Janice Maeditere

 

Today’s Affirmation: I open my heart and let my God-Light out today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: This is the greatest opportunity of the year to get life the right way; or the wrong way.  Is it about giving or getting?  It’s easy to be lost in the getting yet all the deep returns actually come from giving.  The only way to learn this is through practice; we have to do it in order to get it; No giving; no getting. Happy Christmas Eve.

Today’s Quote: Assumptions are the termites of relationships. ~Henry Winkler

 

Today’s Affirmation: I assume only Divine presence in my every breath; it breathes itself into all my relations and serendipity is the only manifestation.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: There is only the truth, unchanging.  It is the Law, absolutely in fallible.  That which has always been I can trust, I can assume, will always be.  In form; the material world of humanity, change is the only constant and I can only assume that what has appeared before will be different in some way when next it enters into relationship with me.  This includes even those people who I trust implicitly with my very heart and soul; they will change, even in ways I would not choose, and still I am willing to grow close knowing this.

Today’s Quote: Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy. ~Wayne Dyer

 

Today’s Affirmation: My mind is peace; my time is action.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Procrastination springs from doubt.  Doubt leads to hesitation and comes from a belief in the alienation of self from the Source.  Doubt is the dream-slayer.  Meditation, contemplation and effective declaration from the Source free up the soul to take action and move into a state of achievement.
