Service

Daily Inspiration: Love cannot remain by itself – it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action and that action is service. ~Mother Teresa

Today’s Affirmation: As I give from my heart I grow my heart. Only this has meaning today.

Today’s Contemplation: The concept of service with no intention of gain is one of the most foreign notions to the human mind. It is quickly argued that only a fool would not attend to their perceived needs of tomorrow.  Yet the greatest heroes of human history remain the ones who demonstrate the true power of unconditional service.

Comprehending

Daily Inspiration: The wave is ignorant of the true nature of the sea: how can the temporal comprehend the eternal? ~Sa’ib of Tabriz

Today’s Contemplation: We do not need to know the nature of the Infinite in order be completely supported by it.  We belong and all that It is will be freely given according to our asking.  If our asking is forever for the good of all then all we could imagine will fulfill our desires before they can even be expressed. It is the One Law working whether it is understood or not.

Tolerance

Daily Inspiration: Tolerance is only complacence when it makes no distinction between right and wrong. ~Sarah Patton Boyle

Today’s Affirmation: I accept the Right and right the wrongs of my soul today.

Today’s Contemplation: Tolerance begins with self.  If it harms no other yet is less than ones ideal tolerance can be the reservoir of increasing pressure that builds the impetus for change. When the moral discomfort outweighs the perceived gain a change will be made.  Conscious awareness of the issue is essential to the process.  Without it one is stuck in complacency; a condition which eventually destroys health and happiness as surely as any physical poison.

Honesty

Today’s Contemplation: The Infinite is in everything, in every breath and in every feeling.  Every reaction, every interaction, is a call to remember that Divine Presence. Every moment is an opportunity to exalt that Holy Presence, not as though it is somewhere out there, rather as the presence right here right now in this living relationship of oneself with the Fullness of Life. Sweet Perfection lies in every moment and this is the G.O.D. I celebrate today.

Self Esteem

Daily Inspiration: Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye. ~Hellen Keller

Today’s Affirmation: I am equal to all life everywhere for I am infinite potential born of Infinite Source.

Today’s Contemplation: When anyone comes to realize that every person is equally a part of the whole, imbued with all the same power and potential, that one will cease to be in fear or awe of any person anywhere.  For in that realization we will understand the power that we wield.  We will become our own masters of our own destinies and the answer to all the worlds’ challenges.

Modesty

Complex

Daily Inspiration: Life is not complex. We are complex. Life is simple, and the simple thing is the right thing. ~Oscar Wilde

Today’s Affirmation: I simplify all matters until all that remains is the Love that I Am. Life calls and I respond from Love.

Today’s Contemplation: The only complexity in life is in human perception. It is a human practice to see anything but love. What if we were wrong; what if when we saw violence, sadness, confusion and fear on any level we asked ourselves “How am I seeing this wrong? How can I see love acting through this moment too?” In a heartbeat if we all did this the world would change and all humanity would experience perfection. If you doubt this try it; and you will become the proof and add to the proof that I am.

Sacrifice

Daily Inspiration: We shall not lightly talk about sacrifice until we are driven to the last extremity which makes sacrifice inevitable. ~Chiang Kai-shek

Today’s Affirmation: Life is full, rich, and unfailing; always showing up opulently in its Divine moment.

Today’s Contemplation: All sacrifice is a response to fear.  Eliminate fear and sacrifice goes with it. The challenge is to live fearlessly and this can only be accomplished with true and unwavering faith.  Follow the path that leads to faith, find the teaching lives in joy, and make your teacher the one whose heart abides in peace and all good things will find their way to you effortlessly.
