Today’s Quote:When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself. ~Wayne Dyer

Today’s Affirmation:  I empower only the good in all I meet today.  As I give love I grow in love.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: What we choose to see in any person grows in our own experiencing whether or not it grows in them.  And what we see is always a choice because in every person there is at least a good intention and a call for more good.  So focus on the attributes in every other person that you would like to celebrate more of in yourself and watch your own good increase.


Today’s Quote:Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you greater than any obstacle. ~Christian D. Larson

Today’s Affirmation:  Today I choose love, joy and peace; on this foundation I re-create my world.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Believe in your capacity.  Every life improves as the individual embraces elevated standards in relationship; learning, practicing and acting.  The better we are to others the better we become and the better our lives become.  The practice is very simple, maybe that is why so many people complicate it so much, they believe challenge must be a part of growth.


Today’s Quote:I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. ~Winston Churchill

Today’s Affirmation:  I see One Life and in all I see that Life smiles back for in all I see I see only me.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: When we look at life with joy we see harmony and balance, when we look from hurt we see only wounds and when we look from anger we see only violence.  We are the authors of our circumstances and our emotional predisposition is the penmanship that does the scripting.  And today is a perfect day to start rewriting the rest of our lives with Joy.


Today’s Quote:Admit your errors, before someone else exaggerates them. ~Andrew Mason

Today’s Affirmation:  I am who I am, open, transparent and willing to grow.  The façade falls away today as I embrace my love of play.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every instant the human mind is awaiting the opportunity to judge, it always seeks to find fault and affirm separateness in measures of better than or worse than. Our Divine selves know there is only One life and so, willingly, acknowledge the flaws of all human perceptions. In the master there is no attempt to ‘look good’ because it is known that all appearances are deceptions of the truth.


Today’s Quote:I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation:  I am One with the Universal Creativity, in every moment inspired to express with success.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: True creativity is measured by its capacity to bring to the artist (and we are all that) joy and success. Therefore the most important aspect of every creation is to eliminate the old belief in limitation, struggle and failure.  Until we do this, no matter how magnificent our castles in the sand are, we have not actually created anything.  Creation is of the Infinite, it is the celebration of that inward richness, the expression, the medium, is simply the effect and the real creation is the blossoming of love and joy in the heart.


Today’s Quote:Minds are like parachutes; they work best when open. ~Thomas Dewar

Today’s Affirmation:  My freedom is a new thought away; today I say ‘YES!’ to and live that new idea.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: We are imprisoned by our old ideas and set free by the new ones.  We are the jailor and we hold the keys.  Will we use them?  Willingness, humility and surrender, action, anticipation, perseverance and faith; will we use them or just talk about them.  Today is the perfect day to say ‘YES!’ to the new ‘you’ you would choose to be.


Today’s Quote: Little evil would be done in the world if evil never could be done in the name of good. ~Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Today’s Affirmation:  God is painless and pure and it is all I know.  I am in the heart of heaven in the joy that whelms over my soul right now.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Let’s get it right! If it doesn’t feel right to every soul everywhere it is a lie, it is a confusion of the ego and the deception of our littleness.  And it will never bring a single soul home to the bliss and joy waiting on the other side of our threshold for pain. Today I listen to my heart, I am attentive for that feel good feeling that is the promise of joy to all I meet… and I act upon it.


Today’s Quote: Conquer, but don’t triumph. ~Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Today’s Affirmation:  I humbly accept my good today.  There is more than enough for all and I say ‘yes’ to mine.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The greatest conquest is over the belief in ‘not enough’.  There is more than enough for everyone.  All one need do is feel the desire fulfilled all the time rather than living and thinking the fear of lackThis is no triumph it is simply recognition that we are all part of one life and thus deserving of the good that awaits our acceptance.


Today’s Quote: The best doctors in the world are Doctor Diet, Doctor Quiet and Doctor Merryman. ~Jonathan Swift

Today’s Affirmation:  My pure intention is lived with a joy filled heart.  All good is mine today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The best Doctors are the ones of the heart because the best medicine is the medicine of the soul; pure and grateful loving-kindness.  To abstain from any thoughts that project and to accept full responsibility for our own pain and pleasure; to diet on thoughts of love and oneness and to celebrate with those of a common mind will engender the most fruitful and satisfying of lives.


Today’s Quote: I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. ~Martha Washington

Today’s Affirmation:  Upon my foundation of gratitude I determine greater happiness for me today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: True happiness springs from a sense of belonging and acceptance. Therefore whatever we do to remind ourselves of the generosity of Life Itself and our intrinsic place of belonging within it will add to our own joy.  Whatever we give to remind others of our oneness and the joy accompanying this memory will further deepen our own Happiness.  Happy Holidays to all.
