Values

Today’s Quote: We can tell our values by looking at our checkbook stubs. ~Gloria Steinem

Today’s Affirmation:  I give in a balanced way from a life that reflects equilibrium, harmony and surplus today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: If we checked our debit and credit records where would we find our money going?  To our homes, families, work, recreation and food; would we actually find a record of giving to the source of our spiritual good?  What we give to grows! When we give to our spiritual source first we build a foundation and all areas of our lives reflect the commitment with growth and harmony.

Cheerfulness

Today’s Quote: Cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind and fills it with a steady and perpetual serenity. ~Joseph Addison

Today’s Affirmation:  The cheer of my spirit is the joy of my heart and the sunshine of my soul.  I Am Happy Today!

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Happiness is a choice. In every single moment it is up to me to be the happiness I seek; it is up to me to change and maintain my thoughts.  The reward is the gift of positive habits.  What I create with discipline becomes my automatic state of being and the state which is reflected in my encounters.

Live

Today’s Quote: Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live. ~Anonymous

Today’s Affirmation:  I am committed to fully living all the joy available to me today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In order to experience the joy of life we must put our words into action.  It is not enough to say I live love; I must actually live it.  We never see the world by having the map.  We must get out there and travel the terrain. Somewhere someway today bless yourself; commit to bringing love where you have never brought it before!

Path

Today’s Quote: If you can find a path with no obstacle it probably doesn’t lead anywhere. ~Frank A Clark

Today’s Affirmation:  I follow my own path; never walked yet always clear.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every road leads to where someone else has already been.  It is good to follow them a while in order to learn what they can offer.  It is good to accept the teachings of the master. Yet eventually each of us must quit following another and make our own path.  We will know it is right by the joy that it brings for the right paths loveliness will outweigh its obstacles by far and keep us forever engaged.

Bounce

Today’s Quote: Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb but how well you bounce. ~Vivian Komori

Today’s Affirmation:  I come back with passion, power and perseverance inspired by my vision today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Our vision must be alive for us to succeed in reaching it.  We must be passionate about it.  There must be an urge that drives us forward, that gets us up when nothing in our lives looks right, that gives us the bounce necessary to go it again when nothing yet has appeared to work.  This is the recipe for success; the only recipe for success and no life is complete until that dream is realized.  Find it and go for it and never let go.

Unlimited

Today’s Quote: The human mind will not be confined to any limits. ~Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Today’s Affirmation:  I think big and only see possibilities today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The challenges that appear to limit us every day are in truth the gateway to a greater reality.  In order for this to be so we must first embrace that challenge in mind and ask ourselves what would be the right outcome.  As the idea reveals itself in mind we next invest in the feeling of living from that idea fulfilled. Finally we simply stay with that feeling and watch the new outcome resolve into experience.

Enjoyment

Today’s Quote: Enjoy the little things in life for one day, you may look back and realize they were the big things. ~Robert Breault

Today’s Affirmation:  Every moment is a God moment and I am totally present in this one.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: As we give ourselves over to the good that is alive in our present moment instead of throwing it away to the hurts and fears of yesterday and tomorrow we create new pathways in our memories and new avenues for experiences to come.  We actually create out of small moments the roadmap for great destinations in our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual life-space.

Children

Today’s Quote: We never know the love of the parent till we become parents ourselves. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Today’s Affirmation:  I nurture every child today; they are all the children of my soul.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: How we feel about children is a reflection of how we felt treated as children.  They are the great avenue for deep healing.  By embracing them and resolving our discomfort we allow for our own deep healing.  The increasing joy each child brings into ones heart is a measure of the successful resolution of that individual’s childhood affliction.

Smile

Today’s Quote: A smile is a universal welcome. ~Max Eastman

Today’s Affirmation:  I ignite another soul with every smile that crosses my face today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: We believe that another person is only touched if they see our smile or in some way experience our joy with their five senses.  This is not so!  We are One! And at a deep level the joy I express anywhere uplifts all life everywhere.  Oneness cannot be divided by time or space or any belief in limitation.  So wherever you stand, what ever you do, do it with a smile and make a World of difference.

Resolution

Today’s Quote: A quarrel is like buttermilk the more you stir it the more sour it grows. ~Bolivian Proverb

Today’s Affirmation:  Because I bring love today I bring peaceful resolution to every conflict.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Love brings resolution to conflict not because love is weak or strong but because Love exists where conflict does not.  All quarrel is a lack of love, it seeks to establish a ‘power over’ condition where power only exists when it is all inclusive, when it is love.  Stand strong today in your determination to reach the loving solution.
