Pathless

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

Today’s Affirmation: I go forward with renewed vigour today; the Infinite has blessed my way.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Often one thinks the pathless way is more dangerous yet if we look to nature we see this could not be true. Any number of predators will wait upon the well traveled path, the food has already been foraged and all shelter has been taken. In order to discover Life one must venture into the unknowable taking the hands of intuition and innocence; here the truly great opportunities can be found.

Innocence

Today’s Quote: Seek the wisdom of the ages, but look at the world through the eyes of a child. ~Ron Wild

Today’s Affirmation: There is magic and wonder in every moment and every breath; I am ready to let go now and see it all.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The innocence of the child lies in the capacity to see for the first time. Can you? Just for a moment suspend your inflated scale of reference and look at your world as for the first time. Suspend all your preconceptions and judgments and discover the magic that is all around you. In that moment the collected secrets of a life time will be revealed; will take your breath away.

Intelligence

Today’s Quote: The intelligent man who is proud of his intelligence is like the condemned man who is proud of his large cell. ~Simone Weil

Today’s Affirmation: All that I am, all that I have and all that I do is a blessing to this world.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: None of us is alone and separate from life. The talents of one exist as potential in all; simply realized in the individual through humanities desire. If ones faculties are not used to enhance the whole those same abilities will rise up in another until balance is realized for the harmonious expression of the whole. Simply; use your gifts or lose them, the world will not wait.

Extra

Today’s Quote: Always go the extra mile; it’s never crowded. ~Anonymous

Today’s Affirmation: I go beyond my fear of lack and open to a new level of loving-kindness today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: “How can I be a bigger me today?” As each person asks this simple question doorways are opened upon an unknowable path to more good. Life says yes to the heart that has already opened in willingness and the path is revealed in perfect order. This new path is a journey filled only with love for fear dares not go this way and is quickly left behind.

Inheritance

Today’s Quote: We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. ~Native American Proverb

Today’s Affirmation: My life is a blessing which I gratefully give back in service and stewardship.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every person was given a life bound by Law; the universe owes us nothing more. It is up to each of us to learn that Law and put it to use in order to create quality. The Law is very simply this: As you give so shall you receive to whatever measure you can conceive and believe. This applies to every thought, word, action and feeling you invest in; in perfect measure. And the quality one demonstrates is the credit one gives to ones children and the children of all life.

Fire

Today’s Quote: The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled. ~Plutarch

Today’s Affirmation: I expose my soul to the fire of Truth and ignite my mind with passion.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Give yourself something new to ponder every day. Nothing keeps the mind young and the soul alive so much as a little stretching of ones old opinions and beliefs. Today is always a wonderful day to discover new depths to ones potential and passion, to consider a new adventure or to seed a new dream. Take your step today.

Deeper

Today’s Quote: It is easier to perceive error than to find truth, for the former lies on the surface and is easily seen, while the latter lies in the depth, where few are willing to search for it. ~Goethe

Today’s Affirmation: I look deep into my soul and find the source of my healing today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: There must be a willingness to see only love in every turn of events in order to reveal love as the only foundation of ones life. This does not mean that one is oblivious to the torments of the world. They are actually seen with perfect clarity and realized as ‘smoke and mirror’ illusions. Pain can not be hidden from the heart that beats with love nor can it be empowered.

Moment

Today’s Quote: The present moment is as it is. Always. Can you let it be? ~Eckhart Tolle

Today’s Affirmation: I am alive in this moment and in this breath all is right in my world.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: When something occurs in your mind to shake you out of your place of joy immediately go in to your inner silence and say as often as you need; “All is right in this moment.” Release the pattern of negative self talk before it consumes your life force and steals your pleasure in the beauty of this moment. Life is perfect when we let it be.

Change

Today’s Quote: Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change. ~Jim Rohn

Today’s Affirmation: I walk anew path and smile a new smile; this is a new day and every moment is an opportunity.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: If we want a new experience we must act and think in a new way. Often it will take a thousand baby steps. We must progress out of the old with the smallest of repetitions and an unwavering determination to experience a richer life. When we do Life does respond and changes happen.

Go

Today’s Quote: Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told, I’m with you kid. Let’s go.’ ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation: Spirits got a hold on me and I’m taking the fast train to happiness today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In order to experience the fullness of life we must be proactive and willing to embrace the Go0dventure of life. This means doing before delegating. This means saying ‘Yes’ to opportunity and walking into the uncomfortable; and this means embracing the harmless path of noble service. ‘We gotta get our hands dirty’ with feelings, emotions and the raw physical grit of real living.
