Deeper

Daily Inspiration: The life you know is a thin layer of events covering a deeper reality.  In the deeper reality, you are part of every event that is happening now, has ever happened, or ever will happen. ~Deepak Chopra

Today’s Affirmation: I enter a deeper reality and discover my good is with me Now.

Today’s Contemplation: In order to discover the truth of who we are we must crack that hard outer shell and go within.  Not easy, there will be many challenges but the challenges will always be the same until we make the breakthrough. That is when we discover that we have always have more than enough when we surrender to that inner light.

Healing

Daily Inspiration: If we truly believed that love is eternal, we would heal our relationships rather than kill the perceived enemy. ~Aeeshah Ababio-Clottey & Kokomon Clottey

Today’s Affirmation: I embrace my inner demons and bring them into the light now.

Today’s Contemplation: When we see that the true enemy we wish to vanquish is not out there at all but rather is those old feelings of fear that cling to us as memory we finally know the work we are each called to do. We also know there will come a day when the work will be done.

Wonders

Daily Inspiration: Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content. ~Helen Keller

Today’s Affirmation: I see the light in even the darkest moments; and what I see always comes to me.

Today’s Contemplation: See what you desire with faith, conviction and feeling. Let it occupy every area of your mind. Know your truth and hold firmly to it. It takes feeling, faith and a willingness to give over completely to God.  When this is truly done the returns are wondrous indeed.

Synthesis

Daily Inspiration: What’s in greatest demand today isn’t analysis, but synthesis, seeing the big picture and combining disparate pieces into an arresting new whole. ~Daniel H. Pink

Today’s Affirmation: I reach into each moment and draw out every prize that builds a perfect tomorrow today.

Today’s Contemplation: The life we live is the life of our creation.  With every thought and every dream, with every sour thought and angry gesture, we begin to structure our lives, all the people, all the details. It is up to each of us to take control of that process through the conscious choice of our thoughts, actions and reactions.

Nonduality

Daily Inspiration: The kind of operation that is necessary to help us out of our dualistic thinking is a nondual experience. Then we begin to see things as one again. ~Haridas Chaudhuri

Today’s Affirmation: In all I do, I think and say I am overwhelmed by the Power of One today.

Today’s Contemplation: Only in the complete and overwhelming awareness of oneness can the pain and suffering of the dualistic mind be lost. Every identification with that old race belief in separation must be abandoned in order for peace and joy to take hold of any individual’s heart.

Events

Daily Inspiration: There are no little events in life, those we think of no consequence may be full of fate, and it is at our own risk if we neglect the acquaintances and opportunities that seem to be casually offered, and of small importance. ~Amelia E. Barr

Today’s Affirmation: Every moment I show up alert and ready.  Every moment I see the call for Love.

Today’s Contemplation: Every moment is an opportunity for loving-kindness.  In every moment an opportunity is revealed for the one who is willing to be transformed.  And every opportunity accepted is a step of permanence and stability in which the walls of material well being dissolve into the naked truth of Love.

Faith

Daily Inspiration: Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light. ~Helen Keller

Today’s Affirmation: My faith shifts my outcomes and all good things happen on the path I walk.

Today’s Contemplation: Literally, there is a power for good underlying and permeating all that lives, and that power responds in perfect balance with our faith. We make our good by living unwaveringly in the knowledge and faith of our good that is coming.

Within

Daily Inspiration: There is a force within that gives you life–Seek that. In your body there lies a priceless jewel-Seek that. Oh, wandering Sufi, if you are in search of the greatest treasure, don’t look outside, Look within, and seek That. ~Jalaluddin Rumi

Today’s Affirmation: I seek to know more completely My God within; the living presence of the Divine that I Am.

Today’s Contemplation: God is All and God is uniquely individualized in each one of us, as each one of us. The greatest gift we can give ourselves is to come to that presence, who we truly are, and discover the Power that we each have for good.

Purpose

Daily Inspiration: Great minds have purposes, little minds have wishes. ~Washington Irving

Today’s Affirmation: In every action my intent for a better world comes through.

Today’s Contemplation: Purposes are intentions that are lived from day to day from moment to moment. At times a life might veer for years from a particular strategy.  Yet when the opportunity reveals itself once more the guiding purpose and intentions of the soul will bring that dream back onto the path of fulfillment.

Life

Daily Inspiration: The art of life is to live in the present moment, and to make that moment as perfect as we can by the realization that we are the instruments and expression of God Himself. ~Emmet Fox

Today’s Affirmation: I create joy, I let go of every distraction, every injustice and see life blossoming forth.

Today’s Contemplation: Creation is the art of stripping away everything that doesn’t belong to joy.  When one is doing a sculpture they let go of chippings.  Why would we do differently creating joy; it is enough to know that we don’t want the anger, fear and sadness.  Let it go and all that will be left is Joy.
