Today’s Quote: If you have made mistakes, even serious mistakes, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call “failure” is not the falling down but the staying down. ~Mary Pickford

 

Today’s Affirmation: I get up and go forward strong in the embrace of the Divine within.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: All failure comes from looking at life backwards, basing our value upon the conditions of our lives rather than our source.  The conditions mean absolutely nothing and will attend to themselves when we truly have faith in and live from that power abiding at the heart of our being, that God presence within us.

Today’s Quote: A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books. ~Walt Whitman

 

Today’s Affirmation: I live my life now, I live it fully and completely adding to Life’s joy with every gesture.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The Infinite is everything, everywhere, everywhen.  It is alive in me as me to the degree that I am living my life in love and appreciation with all.  It is not in my words; rather it is in the awe that inspired those words.  What would it be like to give completely to that kind of Life?

Today’s Quote: Any person capable of angering you becomes your master; he can anger you only when you permit yourself to be disturbed by him. ~Epictetus

 

Today’s Affirmation: I see One. I am centred in One. Right now my life is fun.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Always the answer to any sense of disquiet is to return to the One, that abiding presence that exists eternally at the centre of my being, right here, right now. No thing can anger me when I am truly centred and no thing can truly take my Centre from me. Today I remember only I Am my Master.

Today’s Quote: The more the fruits of knowledge become accessible to men, the more widespread is the decline of religious belief. ~Sigmund Freud

 

Today’s Affirmation: I embrace the truth today and I find my freedom.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Religious beliefs are often confused with religious experience.  Religious belief is an effective control by ego over the freedom of the individual; anyone who holds a religious belief will be bound by it.  A religious experience is a condition where two or more come together in free sharing of spiritual ideas and experiences leading to an elevated sense of good for the whole.

Today’s Quote: Well done is better than well said. ~Benjamin Franklin

 

Today’s Affirmation: From out of the Silence I act today, only God has blessed my way.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Out of the silence comes an action so balanced that it appears to be, and in fact is, effortless. All great action is not the business of one acting to resolve conflict; rather it is the Silence stepping forward in the joy of perfect harmony, entering the dance of Love.  From my meditation I re-member ‘I Am that Silence’ and I enter the dance.

Today’s Quote: There are lots of people who mistake their imagination for their memory. ~Josh Billings

 

Today’s Affirmation: I am born anew of a new idea right now and Creation is happening through me today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The past is done; only on the foundation of a new idea now can great things continue forward from this day.  The new idea may simply be the ‘how’ of yesterday’s dreams; still it is the right how because it is a direct revelation from the Infinite with no investment in the old. Take a moment today to be inspired by your imagination.

Today’s Quote: Not in nature but in man is all the beauty and worth he sees.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Today’s Affirmation: By my attention, by my intention, my world becomes beautiful today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: What we see and how we choose to see it are the only conditions upon the beauty that we see.  If I do not see beauty in a detail I need only change my mind. In order to see the beauty of heaven all around us we need only refrain from judging that which we see.

Today’s Quote: Rest satisfied with doing well, and leave others to talk of you as they will. ~Pythagoras

 

Today’s Affirmation: I live the life I am committed to today; peace, joy and abundance are mine.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every one of us is living the life we have committed ourselves to.  The generous life is rewarded by its intention as is the selfish life punished by its intention.  We are all rewarded by the quality of our generosity; selfless intention given over to the One-in-All is rewarded in ways and means that, while they include currency, will extend into every area of livingness.

Today’s Quote: Anyone who knows anything of history knows that great social changes are impossible without feminine upheaval. Social progress can be measured exactly by the social position of the fair sex, the ugly ones included. ~Karl Marx

 

Today’s Affirmation: I look to the nurturer within and see to it that she remains at peace.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every one of us has a feminine aspect that must be honoured.  We must all be attentive to our feelings and return them to joy, we must honour the feelings in others and we must nurture the ground we walk upon. Only through an alertness to these simple actions can we ensure that we continue to be blessed abundantly in the cycles of life.

Today’s Quote: Don’t fill your time with worry – fix what you can, and let the rest take care of its self. ~Unknown

 

Today’s Affirmation: Every face of fear dissolves; all that remains is the joyous state of expectancy and an urge to make action Now.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Worry is just another name for fear; there is neither advantage nor true existence to fear, it is simply a mental aberration that drains the capacity to act intelligently. A situation simply ‘is’, and we will deal with it best by refraining from indulging in fear.  Whether ones faith is in scientific fact, philosophic argument or an invisible and available power the only way forward is to turn completely from the fear and act on that faith.
