Appreciation

Today’s Quote: Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary. ~Margaret Cousins

Today’s Affirmation:  I speak a word to bring a smile today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every action that springs from love transforms a little piece of this world; and so the whole world.  True appreciation is the action springing from love; without the action there is only an empty wish.  Speak your appreciation today and watch good grow in your world.

Paths

Today’s Quote: Do not follow where the path may lead.  Go instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today’s Affirmation:  I let go of my way and choose the ‘God’ way today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The one great discovery the spiritual devotee comes to realize is the complete and loving ‘Yes’ of the Infinite.  It effortlessly brings into being every experience greater than even our greatest desiring when we surrender into It’s Unfathomable Depths. This Infinite is the only open door and path to all great discoveries.

Consequences

Today’s Quote: Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices. ~Alfred A. Montapert

Today’s Affirmation:  My choices are ‘God’ choices; I bring more good into this world today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Did you start your day with a choice to make life bigger, richer and more love filled today? If not then ‘now’ would be a good time. We do not need to know the how of our choices; simply making them empowers a Universe of opportunities to find their way into our lives.  Make the decision, live the decision and watch as your life takes on greater proportions.

Dimensions

Today’s Quote: A person’s mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Today’s Affirmation:  I discover new possibilities in my ideas today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Think freely and spontaneously.  Let your mind embrace outlandish possibilities and when those thoughts intersect tangible opportunities act.  Whether you discover your own passion or open the door for another’s greatness to shine you have lifted the world to new dimensions.

Purpose

Today’s Quote: The purpose of life is a life of purpose. ~Robert Byrne

Today’s Affirmation:  My purpose is living my dream today and I take action Now.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Dreams rarely if ever just happen.  They entail some form of work albeit often small.  It could be sharing with a supportive friend or co-conspirator, or writing an affirmation to repeat; it could be starting a dream book or it could be window shopping for ideas. However they are grown it will take some definite action so start today. Do something, do anything, just start with some thing today and discover your purpose.

Forgiveness

Today’s Quote: Anger makes you smaller while forgiveness forces you to grow what you were. ~Cherie Carter-Scott

Today’s Affirmation:  Where once I gave Love Today I return to giving Love.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Forgiveness is one of the most important practices of a healthy mind and life. All truly fulfilled people practice it; it is a simple mental exercise of replacing toxic thoughts about any person, organization or event with enriching thoughts.  The only challenge is to do it. Understanding the truth gives nothing to your life unless you live that truth so take some time and ‘live’ forgiveness today.

Overcoming

Today’s Quote: Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. ~Helen Keller

Today’s Affirmation:  Today I rise above my challenges, I look forward in a new way and lift my world in Light.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The human mind loves to fixate on darkness, a little child will pick and poke at a tiny wound thereby recreating and perpetuating the suffering.  With such agile minds adults repeat this activity with every adversity thus by the power of thought eternalizing pain and suffering.  This is the last and most powerful of all addictions that must be released in order to truly experience the Light.

Master-Key

Today’s Quote: Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Today’s Affirmation:  With One Master Key I unlock and set free all the joy in every heart today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every challenge, every roadblock and every unresolved conflict is a master lock holding back only happiness.  We can spend a lifetime finding each key and unlocking each issue or we can turn to the Source, get the Master Key of loving compassion and, in a moment, unlock them all.  The Source is forever present wherever we are; It is the Source and Truth of who we are.  In one moment of surrender we become the gift of all happiness.

Friends

Today’s Quote: Go often to the house of a friend for weeds soon choke up the unused path. ~Old Proverb

Today’s Affirmation:  I bring love and nurturing to my chosen relationships today.  I support them and they support me.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: No relationship ‘just happens’. It takes a degree of investment.  The investment in spiritual terms is love; that urge to add to what is.  We can do this in any manner that brings the individual into loving focus.  We can think highly of our friend, we can speak praise or, best for us, we can bless them with appreciation in either our presence or through proxy ‘gifts’.

Success

Today’s Quote: Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is in the doing, not the getting – in the trying, not the triumph. ~Zig Ziglar

Today’s Affirmation:  I am constantly remembering more of the perfection I Am.  I Am Love awakening today!

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The caterpillar never doubts itself; it never stops moving toward its true magnificence as a butterfly.  Neither should you or I.  We are each incalculable magnificence inexorably awakening to that perfection in the fullness of this divine moment.  Take a risk and let a little of that light shine out today.
