Perspective

Today’s Quote: When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. ~Max Planck

Today’s Affirmation:  I view my world through loves lens today, thus all I see is beautiful for me.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: How we see determines what we see.  What we see is always literally the product of our imagination.  When we see ‘good’ our seeing is creating ‘good’.  Every one of us has the capacity to create the world we all dream of.  Is your seeing the solution to the problem or is it the problem?  Check your perspective today.

Courage

Today’s Quote: Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak.  Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. ~Winston Churchill

Today’s Affirmation:  I speak from integrity and stand on integrity; I rise in silent covenant with my word today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: All courage is placing values before form.  True courage knows that values adhered to create form.  The entire Universe is the product of a Mind that stands in perfect integrity with Its word.  Each of us individualizes that one Mind in the pattern of our experiences by the tendency of our thoughts; all of them. Courage simply holds true to “that which I would choose for me.”

Home

Today’s Quote: If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love. Don’t be surly at home then go out in the street and start grinning ‘Good morning’ at total strangers. ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation:  I bring it home; all my love, all my joy, are delivered into the heart and home that animates this life.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: If I don’t know love for the ones who are closest to me I don’t know love at all.  I am simply pretending love in my urge to get more.  I will know my love for myself when every life that touches mine fills me with joy and laughter.  Only then will I be giving the love I would choose to celebrate in the world.

Values

Today’s Quote: A sharp tongue sometimes cuts its own throat. ~Jim Scancarelli

Today’s Affirmation:  I approach Life alive in my word and in integrity with my heart. Love is my mandate.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: When a person lives in principle with realized values one will move ever toward their demonstration. Every conflict with those values, even a slip of the tongue, is a revelation of old and undesirable beliefs.  When they show themselves look at them and change them to align with your new values. This is the spiritual road to harmony.

Walk

Today’s Quote: Great Spirit help me never to judge another until I have walked in his moccasins. ~Sioux Indian prayer

Today’s Affirmation:  There is one truth, all else is confusion; I see the truth.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: All judgment is focusing on separation. To witness from another’s perspective instantly dissolves every appearance of duality. The truth is One.  I choose to look until the binding of One is revealed; until the Love is tangible. This is the only wisdom that frees the soul from judgment. This is right judgment.

Possibilities

Today’s Quote: Stress the possibilities, not the impossibilities.  The possible stands out like a great shining light above the skyline of dismal clouds. ~Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

Today’s Affirmation:  Success is mine because YES is my mantra and GOD is my source.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The Truth is infinite potential and will remain as potential in our lives until we know it.  Upon our knowledge of that truth all good is revealed and received and every moment is possibility realized.  Life just gets better and better with every breath.

Opportunities

Today’s Quote: One of the secrets of life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks. ~Jack Penn

Today’s Affirmation:  Opportunity knocks and I say Yes.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: What we make of our moments determines our moments.  We must choose and adhere to an outlook of success.  This means constantly moving forward from perceived failure to the hidden opportunities.  Only by such perseverance will we ever be able to reach our desired destinations.

Play

Today’s Quote: Enthusiasm is contagious. Be a carrier. ~Susan Rabin

Today’s Affirmation:  I love life and It Loves Me; all my heart goes into the play of Now.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Nothing gives life like play.  See the children, see the grandchildren; it’s all about the discovery of now.  Every moment and everything can be looked at in a new way with new life.  Find your way to play today and Do It.

Knowledge

Today’s Quote: If you have knowledge let others light their candles in it. ~Margaret Fuller

Today’s Affirmation: As I give of the truth it grows in me; I am moved to a higher light today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Like all acts of giving the conscious practice of sharing knowledge causes a spiritual increase of that knowledge in the benefactor.  Giving is the only effective modality of increase whether it be in objects, money, friendship or wisdom.  The principal challenge for the beginner is to give without intention of getting back for nothing diminishes our returns like hypocrisy.

Wander

Today’s Quote: All that is gold does not glitter; not all those that wander are lost. ~J.R.R. Tolkien

Today’s Affirmation: My path is clear, my destination determined; I Am heading into the Heart of Joy.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: We only begin to know where we are going when we stop seeking our path and start knowing our destination.  The drop of water knows only the ocean, how it arrives is irrelevant. The twists on my path back into the heart of Love are also of no importance.  Every step is closer and must bring more joy.
