Peace

Today’s Quote:It isn’t enough to talk about peace, one must believe it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it, one must work for it. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Today’s Affirmation: I talk peace because I choose peace; and I choose peace with my every action and word today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  Did you know that the World Peace Meditation happened all around the world today, locally at 4:00 AM PST?  Did you join in or was it a little too inconvenient?  One hour once a year is not a lot for an idea called peace that we talk about every year.  If we make it a habit of practice every day for even a few minutes soon it will be a practice that is lived in every action and word of every moment and shall become our norm. That simple!

Extraordinary

Today’s Quote:Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. ~Carl Sagan

Today’s Affirmation: I act on the evidence of my heart today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The only extraordinary evidence is the evidence of the heart; it is the only evidence that springs purely from cause.  Evidence of the world is based on conditions of the world and all conditions of this world are bound by invisible causes. Trust your heart today.

Idea

Today’s Quote:An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come. ~Victor Hugo

Today’s Affirmation: Peace is upon me and spreads like a wave into my world relentless as I am.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: An idea must find traction in the hearts and souls of the masses of humanity in order to awaken as a cultural norm.  Peace is such an idea; more and more as we embrace its full meaning in our lives we change and like a ripple going out with added momentum we stand witness to greater levels of global transformation.

Success

Today’s Quote:Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming. ~John Wooden

Today’s Affirmation: My success is my satisfaction in knowing I am growing in the One Life.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: None of us ever truly reaches our full potential because we are all greater than our human experiences and accomplishments.  We are each and all a living idea in this Infinite Mind; therefore we will forever be increasing in expression and are already perfect in form.

Backbone

Today’s Quote:The wishbone will never replace the backbone. ~Will Henry

Today’s Affirmation: I am resolved to live my dreams; I am taking definite action today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: All it takes to make our dreams come to fruition is small and steady steps from a real unwavering conviction in our right to make them a reality.  Believe in yourself and start your journey today.

Listen

Today’s Quote:Surely it’s no coincidence that the word “listen” is an anagram of the word “silent”. ~Unknown

Today’s Affirmation: In the silence I hear my own peace today; and it spreads like a wave into my world.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: If we take the moment and listen very attentively out of the silence we will hear the music of the Infinite and we will be filled with peace.

Change

Today’s Quote:The more things change, the more they remain the same. ~Alphonse Karr

Today’s Affirmation: I change my world by giving the gift of love today.  And I open my heart and my soul to the Present.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Awakening to the present is the only gift this world can give that has true and lasting value.  In every gift you exchange today be fully present.  Receive your full measure of love that is back of that moment; either in the giving or receiving.  That is all that any of this life is about.

Winners

Today’s Quote:Winners never quit and quitters never win. ~Vince Lombardi

Today’s Affirmation:  One path; I am going home to my heart today and I am going all the way.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Unless we know what is important to us we can never find passion.  And we will always be passionate about what we want whether or not it is good for us.  Step one: get clear about what you want, what will make the biggest difference in your heart at the end of your days on earth. Step two: give all you have to the outcome of your desiring.  Do this and success will be yours.

Friends

Today’s Quote:You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you. ~Dale Carnegie

Today’s Affirmation:  I genuinely see the God in everyone I meet because I look for and see the good in all.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Being interested in others starts in the recognition of our commonality.  That commonality is the Christ; present in every heart everywhere and rising up with my recognition.  When we truly see this in others they must see it in us.  They will like us even when they can’t fathom why.

Purpose

Today’s Quote:There is no failure except in no longer trying. There is no defeat except from within, no insurmountable barrier except our own inherent weakness of purpose. ~Elbert Hubbard

Today’s Affirmation:  I can make my world a better place because I know all the Universe conspires with me today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The greatest tools for actualizing success are passion and surrender.  Passion is the power that arises from within when our vision is for the greater good and surrender is the realization that there is an Infinite Power back of me that inspired the dream, passion and all, which chooses nothing less than our success.  In these simple realizations success is guaranteed.
