Today’s Quote: We shouldn’t make ourselves miserable over somebody else’s bad choices. ~Joyce Meyer

 

Today’s Affirmation: I live from my heart and bring joy to every breath I breathe.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: It take s conviction, a determined choice, to stay centered in my own heart for me to sail in the seas of the worlds emotional confusion.  In order to do this I must restock my human-ship at least daily with a fresh supply of Soul Food.  I do this through meditation, reading, writing and continually expressing my appreciation and gratitude.

Today’s Affirmation: I bring peace to my soul and joy to my world today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: We all know deep down that we can only truly bring happiness to the ones we love if we have a genuine display from a heart already in love with itself.  I must first give myself the gift before I can ever truly give to another; If I really love them I will honour me first.

Today’s Quote: A man will renounce any pleasures you like but he will not give up his suffering. ~G. I. Gurdjieff

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today I surrender my story and accept the peace of not knowing.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: All suffering is bound to our belief that we can know the truth from the level of our story; our humanness. It is only in letting go of this idea that we can discover the greater Truth which we are all immersed in. It knows and freely reveals All to our humble receptivity.

Today’s Quote: Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again. ~Joseph Campbell

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today I find my ritual, I enter my sacred, and I remember the Light I am.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: It may be meditation, it may be a favourite pastime,  it could be the work I am passionate about; somewhere in each of us we find the silence.  That is our own unique sacred space; knowing it and going to it makes it stronger and brighter.  So take the time daily to enter that silence and remember your truth.

Today’s Quote: Trouble is a part of your life, and if you don’t share it, you don’t give the person who loves you a chance to love you enough. ~Dinah Shore

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today I open my heart the mostest to the ones who are the closest; to them I shed my story and let their Love Light in.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In truth we all need someone who can forgive us for our deepest and darkest transgressions.  This is the original purpose of the confessional; the priest, rabbi, imam or guru.  We all now know that such a process can never be institutionalized yet we all still need that listening ear.  This is the purpose of the fifth step in AA and is a need for every living soul everywhere.  If I want to grow I must be willing to, at least once in my life, shed my story to someone who I know can listen with compassion and confidentiality.

Today’s Quote: Silence is an ocean.  Speech is a river.  When the ocean is searching for you, don’t walk into the language-river. ~Rumi

 

Today’s Affirmation: I am peace, I am calm, I bathe in the silence of Love today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Sometimes any words are too many words.  I ask myself; “Can I be sensitive to that need for silence in another?  Can I allow that silence to be a bridge to deeper connection?”  Sometimes my silence is a greater gift than my words and I remember to be as present in that silence.

Today’s Affirmation: I am singular in my focus of joy.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: When we choose the simplicity of a quality like ‘happiness for all’ we can bring it to every action and activity.  Each of our actions and silent moments will become that meditation and It will become all we do and all we are.  Thus all the events of our lives will eventually harmonize perfectly with that ideal.
