Steps

Daily Inspiration: Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today’s Affirmation: I know I am living God’s choice for me and I step forward in complete faith today.

Today’s Contemplation: When you are doing the work of a higher calling step forward in faith and trust the calling.  Just remember if it is a higher calling it will require a hundred percent of all you have to give.

Seeing

Daily Inspiration: Blessed are the ones who have not seen and yet have believed. ~John 20:29

Today’s Affirmation: I accept the unseen that awakens in my heart; Love makes all things right.

Today’s Contemplation: As long as we rely on the information of our five senses, particularly our eyes, we will be wrong. This runs counter to what we see as common sense. Yet this is the nature of Truth; it will most often run completely counter to what we believe.

Anticipation

Daily Inspiration: Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight. ~Benjamin Franklin

Today’s Affirmation: Light is my path, Love is my compass, and I do not waver.

Today’s Contemplation: One must make the conscious decision in order to get where one would choose to go. That decision must be made every day and sometimes every hour in order to find the joy one is seeking.

Pose

Daily Inspiration: Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you? ~Fanny Brice

Today’s Affirmation: The authentic me is a beautiful me; I am safe to show myself with transparency.

Today’s Contemplation: Who you are exactly as you are is good enough because you are created of perfection. In fact once you have realized this you will discover that you are far more than good enough; you are one of Infinite Perfection and worthy of all good.  Step up and be that today.

Direction

Daily Inspiration: I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Today’s Affirmation: I am moving into Oneness today; in everyone I see I see Me.

Today’s Contemplation: At the heart of every being, the Truth of every person, there is one universal Love. Eventually, because this Love is the totality of all that exists and because nothing else exists, everyone eventually finds their way into Oneness. And every step leads to a greater degree of fulfillment.

Lift

Daily Inspiration: If you want to lift yourself up, lift up somebody else. ~Booker T. Washington

Today’s Affirmation: I share my appreciation and I appreciate in every way today.

Today’s Contemplation: Praise, appreciation and gratitude are for the giver as much as for the receiver. Share your best thoughts and warm wishes for all who you meet today. You will discover an influx of wealth directly correlating to your generosity.

Impossible

Daily Inspiration: What seems impossible one minute becomes, through faith, possible the next. ~ Norman Vincent Peale

Today’s Affirmation: I choose to move forward in faith; I can do what I have never done.

Today’s Contemplation: Faith is the knowing of a power that one may rely upon even if one does not understand it. So the first step is to find the evidence of that something which is greater.

Door

Daily Inspiration: You need not look for God either here or there. He is no farther away than the door of your heart. ~Meister Eckhart

Today’s Affirmation: I open the door of my heart today and let My Good enter into me.

Today’s Contemplation: God is synonymous with Good; there is no good anywhere in which God is not present.  So any time you are feeling an emotion that comes out of goodness you have opened your door to God.  The great challenge is to be present enough to make time and space for good to enter.  It usually starts with giving.

Discovery

Daily Inspiration: Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen, and thinking what nobody has thought. ~Albert Szent-Gyorgi

Today’s Affirmation: Forever young; I always see the new and in a new way every time.

Today’s Contemplation: In every moment the eyes of innocence will see the opportunity.  One must shed preconceptions in order to break through into a greater reality; and one must be present in the stream of greater truths.  This occurs naturally through the eyes of a child in the years of an adult who has reclaimed innocence.

Will

Daily Inspiration: Lord, give us the will and bent of the mind to rest not until we bring forth the kind of world-flower that You intended us to! ~James Dillet Freeman

Today’s Affirmation: I have purpose, passion, and inspiration. I have fortune and providence and I will not stop.

Today’s Contemplation: When I am in alignment the Universe is in alignment with me. That means the Universe provides the way and the means and my job is to show up in faith; my will is simply willingness.
