Appreciation

Daily Inspiration: Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret. ~Mary Kay Ash

Today’s Affirmation: I let my ‘Appreciation’ out, and share my praise today.

Today's Contemplation: Appreciation is growth and when it is shared it leads to growth. When we verbally praise the good in another there is a corresponding growth in their soul. The y do more and they become more and they give more; they make our world a better place.

Work

Daily Inspiration: You cannot be really first-rate at your work if your work is all you are. ~Anna Quindlen

Today’s Affirmation: My work is Love and that is all I Am.

Today's Contemplation: As long as ones work is defined as ones job true happiness cannot be found in work alone. When ones work becomes the act of self actualization physically, mentally, emotionally and, most importantly, spiritually then ones work becomes ones greatest joy and fulfillment. It is all a matter of perspective.

Appreciate

Daily Inspiration: It is time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever – the one who recognizes the challenges and does something about it. ~Vince Lombardi

Today’s Affirmation: I contemplate, assess and act upon inner guidance today; my living passion gets the job done.

Today's Contemplation: In our urge to follow that inner directive and act upon the tasks at hand let us also notice the initiative of others as they act upon their own guidance to make change happen. Praise and appreciation well placed is the key to improving a person’s sense of self worth.

Gifts

Daily Inspiration: The first great gift we can bestow on others is a good example. ~Thomas Morell

Today’s Affirmation: I live in integrity with Principle today; Life, Love, Light and Joy. And all that I am is imbued upon my world.

Today's Contemplation: To be so firmly fixed in the Divine that my every action is aligned, my every word is a blessing conferred and my every thought is a dance with the Beloved; that is living in integrity with Principle and that is giving the first great gift. That is my wish for you.

Cash

Daily Inspiration: Yesterday is a canceled check: Forget it. Tomorrow is a promissory note: Don't count on it. Today is ready cash: Use it! ~Edwin C. Bliss

Today’s Affirmation: I recognize value in the whole of this day; prosperity is mine for I see it and live it in work, rest and play.

Today's Contemplation: Prosperity must first be recognized as a truth of Life itself before it can be experienced in the livingness of Life. When one appreciates prosperity in each breath and the beauty that forever adorns us all one cannot possibly generate cash flow that will free experience from poverty.

Happiness

Daily Inspiration: We deem those happy who from the experience of life have learnt to bear its ills without being overcome by them. ~Carl Jung

Today’s Affirmation: Every storm passes because my heart is filled with rainbows and happiness arches over me.

Today's Contemplation: I have learned that Love dominates the spectrum of all life; and that when one surrenders to this ‘Love’ all experience resolves back into alignment with joy.  The principle is simple: Only Good can come of this.” This is true simply because Love is the source of all life and therefore every life must return to Love.

Action

Daily Inspiration: To do anything truly worth doing, I must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in with gusto and scramble through as well as I can. ~Og Mandino

Today’s Affirmation: Not a thought for perfection today; I simply Do It, and it gets done.

Today's Contemplation: One need not be concerned about perfection for two simple reasons. First; within the material realm there is no true perfection because awareness is always in comparison. Second, and more importantly; in the realm of the Absolute all is One, therefore all is perfect.  This breaks down to do your best and that will always be God enough.

Friendship

Daily Inspiration: A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out. ~Walter Winchell

Today’s Affirmation: I show up, today, with a heart full of compassion; I Am a reminder, I Am Love’s answer.

Today's Contemplation: When one is fully align with spiritual truth and fully expressing one’s spiritual nature then that one is sure to be a friend to all. To the degree that one remembers Oneness of Life that one will be perfectly situated to reveal the needs of friendship.  All that any friend is called to do is consciously act on Love’s ordinance; “What would Love do now?”

Risk

Daily Inspiration: Behold the turtle: He only makes progress when he sticks his neck out. ~James Bryant Conant

Today’s Affirmation: I stand for Life; the Fullness, Wholeness and Joy of Life. I do it with a Heart filled with Love and Passion.

Today's Contemplation: My greatest joy is derived from my willingness to stick my neck out; to be blatantly obvious in my passion for sharing the deep joy and reverence I feel. By doing this from my heart I discover that all risk is bound in fear. Once that is released all my neck will ever get is a good tan.

Setting

Daily Inspiration: Beware what you set your heart upon. For it shall surely be yours. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today’s Affirmation: In all my relations, in all my activities, in all my encounters, I Know only Love’s gifts for me Today.

Today's Contemplation: Remember today that all the goodness that you witness shared by any one person to another is a gift of goodness given also to you. In this your heart will blossom and the floodgates of abundance will open to you.
