Otherness

Daily Inspiration: What only difference lies ‘twixt me and God? Confess!
I’ll tell you in a word – nothing but Otherness. ~Angelus Silesius

Today’s Affirmation: In all I see I see the Oneness that is Life; the Oneness that is me.

Today’s Contemplation: Cease to see in terms of otherness; cease to identify with separation. This is the only route to peace to true freedom. The One individualized can have infinite identities without losing Its Oneness. I can still have an individual perspective and consciousness while being completely one with all the diversity I see and one with the Whole.

Wings

Daily Inspiration: Living at risk is jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down. ~Ray Bradbury

Today’s Affirmation: I have left my yesterdays behind and spread my wings into a new dawn today.

Today’s Contemplation: The most valuable mental tool in the adventure of discovering tomorrow is an attitude of innocence. When we discover each day with absolutely no preconceptions we discover a force that forever supports the unveiling of greater joy in our hearts. Let this last day of this calendar be the first day of all your dreams.

Limitless

Daily Inspiration: There is no limit, because God is love and love is God. And so you are really in love with God, and God’s love is infinite. And that’s why it’s not how much you do, but how much love you put into the action. ~Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Today’s Affirmation: I do it because I Love it and because that’s what I Am.

Today’s Contemplation: The first great leap of consciousness is that the source and supply of all life is Love.  The second great leap is that this Source is all there is.  And the third is that I Am That; no separation, none, only Oneness forever individualizing.

Surrender

Daily Inspiration: Surrender is the simple but profound wisdom of yielding to rather than opposing the flow of life. ~Eckhart Tolle

Today’s Affirmation: I accept life for what it is and find the joy in my heart today.

Today’s Contemplation: Where I hold appearances as valuable I hold my self vulnerable.  Only by surrendering such perceptions to an underlying field of continuity can I find true strength.  As I come to realize this Universal Field of Intelligence back of all I begin to recognize the true Power of life; of my life.

Arise

Daily Inspiration: You may write me down in history, With your bitter, twisted lies,  You may trod me in the very dirt, But still, like dust, I’ll rise. ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation: I see only my good and rise up to a greater good.

Today’s Contemplation: I rise because I am not swayed by the opinions of others.  I know Source and because I know there I Am. On this universal truth is every person’s promise of greatness.

Heaven

Daily Inspiration: His disciples said to him: “On what day will the Kingdom come?”
“It will not come when it is expected. No one will say: ‘See it is here!’ or:
‘Look, it is there!’ but the Kingdom of the Father is spread over all the earth
and men do not see it.” ~The Gospel according to Thomas

Today’s Affirmation: I raise my sight to the One and establish Heaven all around.

Today’s Contemplation: Heaven is truly a way of seeing. It sees through all distortions of limitation into the heart of Love from which every action emanates.  In this kind of seeing the world is literally transformed because Love revealed or realized resolves the consciousness back of the condition toward effective action for the desired outcome; which is always greater happiness.

Meaning

Daily Inspiration: What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us. ~Julia Cameron

Today’s Affirmation: I follow my calling in all I do. I give with passion and my world grows for me.

Today’s Contemplation: Often we think there is some special work that we must find in order to find what we are meant to do.  The truth is simpler than that.  Give with love, give with integrity and bring joy to every heart and your good will naturally come to you. Prosperity, joy and all things you truly desire will be yours.

Love

Daily Inspiration: If we truly believed that love is eternal, we would heal our relationships rather than kill the perceived enemy. We would eliminate the desire to attack ourselves or anyone else when difficult issues surface. We would understand that unless we heal through love, the same problems will keep reemerging.  ~Aeeshah Ababio-Clottey & Kokomon Clottey

Today’s Affirmation: The meaning of Christmas fills me today; I Am Love.

Today’s Contemplation: Many people say Love is a verb; it is an action.  This can only be true if I realize that I Am the noun from which the verb issues forth.  “I Am Love. “ could be the noun that changes your life.  When one lives and breathes Love all they will ever see is the Divine synchronicity of life and they will always be in the right place(s) at the right time(s) for Loves work to be done.

Optimism

Daily Inspiration: Optimism doesn’t wait on facts.  It deals with prospects.  Pessimism is a waste of time. ~Norman Cousins

Today’s Affirmation: I jump into today knowing it is going my way.

Today’s Contemplation: How can I change my perspective to allow for a better day today?  What opinions can I let go of in order to bring more joy to my relationships and interactions?  This is the promise of a richer season of celebration; one cannot love just one person without bringing it into all other relations.  Make your day bright with a conscious choice.

Recipe

Daily Inspiration: My recipe for a long life isn’t complicated.  You keep on doing what you do best as long as you can. When you love what you do, it’s not work, it’s play. ~Dr. Leila Denmark

Today’s Affirmation: I do what I love and I Love what I do; my work is my play and my play is the glue.

Today’s Contemplation: Work daily and diligently with love in your heart.  There is nothing that frees the soul so completely of pettiness than a life of service; it will eradicate disease, banish depression, salve wounds of anger and bring peace and joy to the heart.
