Today’s Quote: Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes. ~Mahatma Gandhi

 

Today’s Affirmation: I do the best I can with compassion and accountability in this knowledge I forgive me easily.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: There is never a problem with mistakes if we can forgive ourselves and move on.  In order to do that we must accept that as we live from our highest and best we need not punish ourselves.  I act with integrity, make amends, and move on to greater outcomes quickly and easily for I am not complete; I am blossoming.

Today’s Quote: We are never deceived; we deceive ourselves. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

Today’s Affirmation: In every appearance of pain I am willing to see the truth; only good exists.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In every appearance of pain, no matter how real it may seem, I am seeing falsely.  In order to change my experience I must see correctly with a conviction that will fundamentally change my experiences.  Knowing the truth literally does set us free.

Today’s Quote: Divide and rule, a sound motto. Unite and lead, a better one. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

Today’s Affirmation: I lead by love today and all who see add to my day.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Who we are is the greatest magnet we can be and to be the one who sees this in others is the greatest of gifts. Only love, by whatever name we call it, can truly see the gifts in all others so the one who seeks to see those gifts is blossoming in love, becoming attractive and naturally growing as a true leader.

Today’s Quote: You see things; and you say: “Why?” But I dream things that never were; and I say: “Why not?” ~George Bernard Shaw

 

Today’s Affirmation: I am the engine of creativity, God in, God out; and great things are born of my God breath.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The challenge is rarely in the insight, the vision or the dream.  It is almost always in the perseverance; in the follow through.  Great people are people who heard the whisper and then built the spire, who laid one brick at a time toward their vision until they stood in the empire of their own creativity.

Today’s Quote: For thy sweet love remember’d such wealth brings, that then I scorn to change my state with kings. ~William Shakespeare

 

Today’s Affirmation: I recognize my abundance in all the love that surrounds me, that feeds me, in all the ways of my body and soul today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The day humanity realizes and comes to believe that true wealth exists in relationships rather than in things poverty shall finally and forever be eliminated, peace shall be achieved, dreams shall be realized and health shall be the norm.

Today’s Quote: Great things are done by a series of small things brought together. ~Vincent Van Gogh

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today I take the little actions to forgive the little things and build my great new heaven right here.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The greatest little thing that can be done is the forgiveness of self for accepting a small wound before it grows big.  Every little wound released is replaced by a new vision of love and creativity, by a surge of energy and a path of action.  A great new world is birthed on the forgiveness of small and hurtful misperceptions.

Today’s Quote: Every second is of infinite value. ~Johann von Goethe

 

Today’s Affirmation: This is my moment of creation and I put my full heart into it; great things are happening here.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In the silence, in the stillness, great things happen.  I have a dream, I take the action, I plant the seed, and a period of silence goes by.  It appears as though nothing is happening but my faith knows. Even in the silence my faith knows; the mystery of birthing has touched my seed and it is growing.  In this silence I prepare my life and my world; for every second is of value when life and dreams are coming to fruition.

Today’s Quote: It is of the nature of desire not to be satisfied, and most men live only for the gratification of it. ~Aristotle

 

Today’s Affirmation: My desire is my delight; it is the celebration of God dancing in my soul today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Desire is the seed of passion.  It sets the stage for achievement and whatever we have desire for, with energy and commitment, comes our way.  This is the creative process and works for us whether we act selfish- or selflessly.  The only difference is the outcome; the former will take from the life of the dreamer and the latter will enhance that life.

Today’s Quote: The true basis of religion is not belief, but intuitive experience. Intuition is the souls power of knowing God. To know what religion is really all about, one must know God. ~Paramahansa Yogananda

 

Today’s Affirmation: In all I see I see God looking back on me. Every one everywhere is a living dimension of God in me and I accord all with love.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: True religion is the celebration and discovery that you are me, not a reflection but reality.  It is the awareness that I am looking at God at the level of my comprehension and as I come to know you better I come to know God better and discover the magnificence that I truly am; it is my in-tuition, the gift I give to me.

Today’s Quote: An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. ~Henry David Thoreau

 

Today’s Affirmation: I embrace in gratitude the freshness of this dawning new day; with every breath wonderful things are coming my way.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Why just this morning I forgave my self for placing conditions and limitations on the love I once gave.  With this blessing of a new day I was able to bring more love to my family, my friends and my whole world.  Thanks be to the Beloved who forever dances in my heart and for the gift I gave myself in my morning visit.
