Success

Today’s Quote: The elevator to success is out of order. You’ll have to use the stairs…one step at a time. ~Joe Girard

Today’s Affirmation: I take life one step at a time because I am in my Heaven right now; all is right in my world.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The sweetness of life is in the journey, living fully present and fully engaged.  Find your pleasure in the process else you will find no pleasure at all; Joy can only ever be found here and now.

Contentment

Today’s Quote: Contentment is the only real wealth. ~Alfred Nobel

Today’s Affirmation: I nurture all that is good; I grow in all that is God.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: As we appreciate we grow.  Contentment is the state of having grown enough to know that all I need is forever provided.  True contentment comes of the awareness of this as a Spiritual Truth; “Seek ye first the Kingdom…”.

Neighbours

Today’s Quote: We make our friends; we make our enemies; but God makes our next-door neighbour. ~Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Today’s Affirmation: What comes to me is my opportunity; all things come to more good today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: My neighbours are always a reflection of my underlying beliefs and conflicts.  By finding peace with my neighbours often childhood issues will curiously also find resolution.  Every issue comes up to be released and surrendered, not resolved; it is another opportunity and reminder to breathe into our sacred centre.

Perseverance

Today’s Quote: Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another. ~Walter Elliott

Today’s Affirmation: I stay the course and return to my dream today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  The journey is not done until the desire is won.  We may walk away a thousand times only to return a thousand and one.  Perseverance is that quality of passion ignited so deep in the soul that even when your head says your finished, even then you know in your heart you are not yet done.

Happiness

Today’s Quote: They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world. Someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for. ~Allan K. Chalmers

Today’s Affirmation: I remember the God expression that I Am; in this alone I am complete.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  As the great teacher said “Seek ye first the Kingdom… “; once we find that all abiding indwelling love All that is necessary to a joy filled life is realized.  The rest; health, wealth, love and purpose simply follow.

Simplify

Today’s Quote: Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: God is All, God is One, I Am That.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  Can a person conceive of being the oneness of all life, all substance, all there is, while still maintaining a sense of uniqueness?  It is possible; and when any of us can conceive this we will be standing on the threshold of our true self.  In that moment multiplicity merges into oneness through the eye of the beholder.

Fiction

Today’s Quote: Truth is more of a stranger than fiction. ~Mark Twain

Today’s Affirmation:  In a world seeing conflict I see only harmony; I see my world into being today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  If all one believes is fiction then how can truth reveal itself?  If a person is convinced that everyone is a fully self determining individual how can that person conceive of oneness?  Only in surrendering the belief that one is right, that one actually know anything, can the truth be revealed.  Until then the life bound in belief will equally be bound in illusion.

Wisdom

Today’s Quote: It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err. ~Mahatma Gandhi

Today’s Affirmation:  I humbly go forward in faith that all is revealed and even in the height of my humanness only good shall come of my every action today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  Wherever action is involved on this human plane of existence there will be ‘errors’ in someone’s perception, for all physical action is defined by a race consciousness of separateness and the ‘parts’ of the whole can never know or reveal the whole.  Therefore humbleness is the greatest part of every wise action.

Care

Today’s Quote: A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools. ~Spanish Proverb

Today’s Affirmation:  I tend to my health from the inside out; every thought, every word.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  Yes; pay attention to the food you eat.  Ensure that it is tended with love and faith.  Whole foods as much as possible unadulterated by the ego are best.  Still with all your tending to the substances you ingest pay greater attention to the words you listen to, the thoughts you think and all the related tendencies they trigger in you. The first action for vitality is always healthy thinking.

Following

Today’s Quote: He who cannot be a good follower cannot be a good leader. ~Aristotle

 

Today’s Affirmation:  Forever I follow the star in my heart and today it glistens in the voices all around me.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  A true leader follows inspiration, that inner voice which whispers forever.  This does not mean he or she ignores those people who stand by him or her. Rather the true leader recognizes that the sacred whisper within, by the very law of attraction, must be echoed in every voice and circumstance in their proximity.  The true leader is forever alert to the Divine in all life.
