Creatively

Daily Inspiration: To think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted. ~George Kneller

Today’s Affirmation: I let go of all and open up with a whole new perspective today.

Today’s Contemplation: If something causes me discomfort it is time for me to change my outlook.  I continue changing my outlook until I find happiness again.  This is creative thinking and it always brings with it greater opportunity.

Forgiveness

Daily Inspiration: The forgiving state of mind is a magnetic power for attracting good. ~Catherine Ponder

Today’s Affirmation: I let go and let my good come to me.

Today’s Contemplation: Forgiveness is release, it is letting go, not of the dumping kind but rather it is giving over of the cherished kind.  “I have valued this wound and now I give it up for a greater love.”  I give it to a love that makes the violation feel insignificant.

Realization

Daily Inspiration: You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level. ~Eckhart Tolle

Today’s Affirmation: I look within and find my wellspring of happiness.

Today’s Contemplation: Peace and happiness are decisions that we make.  The decisions are more easily made when we come to realize our inner magnificence that is not altered by anything we have done.  This is where the true value of meditation is revealed.

Mothers

Daily Inspiration: Mother is the name for God on the lips and hearts of all children. ~Brandon Lee

Today’s Affirmation: I nurture the heart and discover the mind; and here I find Love.

Today’s Contemplation: Every heart is calling for love and every active mother gives love. And so every mother defines God.  Every father who does the same adds definition to God in greater breadth; and between them they discover God in the child. Be part of the discovery.

Change

Daily Inspiration: All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind is part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter into another. ~Anatole France

Today’s Affirmation: I let go of the old and discover a better day today.

Today’s Contemplation: All change is a product of a belief in separation and will continue to be uncomfortable until the individual embraces a philosophy of Oneness.  At that point it is no longer change; it is liberation.  And what before was change is now simply a shedding of limiting beliefs as one embraces the magnificence within.

Snapshot

Daily Inspiration: All we see of someone at any moment is a snapshot of their life; they’re in riches or poverty, in joy or despair. Snapshots don’t show the million decisions that led to that moment. ~Richard Bach

Today’s Affirmation: I choose only to see the call for Love that guides every action today.

Today’s Contemplation: We may not be able to fathom every decision a person makes but we may unerringly witness every intention that drives those decisions. With minimal effort and no deductive skills anyone can see that intention is always for the protagonist’s greater happiness.  I always support their happiness without ever justifying the actions.

Simple

Daily Inspiration: When the solution is simple, God is answering. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: K.I.S.S. In all my choices today I ‘keep it simple and sweet’.

Today’s Contemplation: In all things Divine simplicity is the first order. When I surrender life becomes simple because it takes resistance to maintain complications.  And the first Law of Life is that all things will return to their simplest state. And the second Law is that all things, free of interference, will find the simplest path to fulfillment.  The simplest state is pure Divine Love.

Nonresistance

Daily Inspiration: The universe loves, protects and cherishes me. I am nonresistance to all things in the universe. ~Imelda Octavia Shanklin

Today’s Affirmation: I accept that I am loved and cherished and all that I need comes to me.

Today’s Contemplation: The first premise is that there is life back of all life. If this is true then every life must be of that one life.  It follows from there that this one life must be every life. If this is accepted as truth then the universe is innately benevolent. It must be so or life would simply consume itself and this is not so. Therefore the sensible person will trust the universe to support every quality of life.

Eternity

Today’s Quote: Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. ~Henry Van Dyke

Today’s Affirmation: I embrace the eternity of this moment as I claim the love that is Mine.

Today’s Contemplation: When one is preoccupied with the conditions of a world around then the possibility to experience the fullness of life is diminished proportionally. It is not possible to be in any state other than love and fully experience life.

Support

Daily Inspiration: Ironically, the people who seem to upset us the most are those who, at the soul level, love and support us the most. ~Colin C. Tipping

Today’s Affirmation: I see the love and celebrate the love in everyone I meet.

Today’s Contemplation: When I feel upset by the behaviors of another I look more deeply into me. I find the old trigger and let it go. I then look more deeply into them and find the loving intention back of the behavior.  Sometimes it is simply a call for love; something I would willingly give.
