Acceptance

Daily Inspiration: Bring acceptance into your nonacceptance.  Bring surrender into your nonsurrender.  Then see what happens. ~Eckhart Tolle

Today’s Affirmation: As I accept what ‘is’ today I discover what is good.

Today’s Contemplation:  The more we accept our conditions and accept that they are perfect for us.  Through a process of surrender desire and revelation we soon come to realize the magnificence of the moment.

God

Daily Inspiration: God is the Spirit of Love within us which, when recognized and called forth, becomes omnipotent Power, the Perfect Power with us. ~Jack & Cornelia Addington

Today’s Affirmation: I call forth the love that I am; Every turn brings me to God.

Today’s Contemplation:  Never underestimate the power of Love to make all conditions better.

Care

Daily Inspiration: I feel the capacity to care is the thing which gives life its deepest significance. ~Pablo Casals

Today’s Affirmation: I care deeply and gently today embracing all who come my way.

Today’s Contemplation:  Caring must first be for oneself because only in oneself can love be discovered.  Only in oneself can it be nurtured and grow into something that can be witnessed in another; any other.

Equality

Daily Inspiration: If we truly believe in equality, we need to live in such a way that it is demonstrated in every aspect of our lives. ~Gerald G. Jampolsky & Diane V. Cirincione

Today’s Affirmation: I am entitled to more Love for it is God’s nature and everyone’s birthright.

Today’s Contemplation:  Equality is the outcome of the One Life that realizes Itself in every life.  The big challenge is that it can only begin for you through your own life; as you awaken.

Choose

Daily Inspiration: Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself – I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. ~Groucho Marx

Today’s Affirmation: Today I choose joy, all my thoughts turn to good.  And it is good I realize today.

Today’s Contemplation:  When you come to understand your life is your choice, a choice that you started making when you first started having thoughts and accepting them as your truth.  Each thought either added to your peace or your pain.  Now would be a good time to think about your choices forward and whether you will create the life of your choosing or more of what you’ve always had.

Taste

Daily Inspiration: My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it’s on your plate. ~Thornton Wilder

Today’s Affirmation: I take the moment and taste the good within it.  All that I receive is given back tenfold in my joy and enthusiasm.

Today’s Contemplation:  The world is good and rich and beautiful but only when you determine to see it.  Open your eyes to the possibility; seize the moment and look deeply until you witness the Love within it.  It will take a lot of practice but the rewards are beyond compare.

Compassion

Daily Inspiration: Compassion is a practically acquired knowledge, like dancing.  You must do it and practice diligently day by day. ~Karen Armstrong

Today’s Affirmation: I share my love and practice compassion in every encounter today.

Today’s Contemplation:  Compassion is the act of creating heaven on earth. My altar to heaven is built upon every relationship, on all my relations.  And the loving-kindness I bring into all my encounters is the gift I put upon that alter and how I create heaven in this life today.

Freedom

Daily Inspiration: The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day. ~David Foster Wallace

Today’s Affirmation: I train myself to think all that love would be for me.  Every day my life gets better.

Today’s Contemplation:  Thought is the only secure avenue to freedom.  Yet it doesn’t come easily.  One must work at the discipline of thoughts with  diligence.

Acceptance

Daily Inspiration: It is even better to accept the compliment and return it so the giver feels as though he or she has received a gift. ~Louise L. Hay

Today’s Affirmation: I act in humble gratitude to those who see my passion and investment; I act with Love to all.

Today’s Contemplation:  The greatest gift in a world of gifts is appreciation.  Gratitude gives back and, for a moment, makes the giver and receiver one.  There is no greater Love than this.

Truth

Daily Inspiration: We must know the truth about ourselves before we can know it about others.  ~Ernest Holmes and Raymond Charles Barker

Today’s Affirmation: I recognize today that my power is more than just potential, and I use.

Today’s Contemplation:  Power is Truth.   “Know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free.” The Truth is that God is all there is, God is Love and that there no place where God is not.  This simply means that whatever I want with belief and conviction, knowing it is harmless to all others,  is mine by right of consciousness.
