Important

Daily Inspiration: The most important thing, is to find out, what is the most important thing. ~Shunryu Suzuki

Today’s Affirmation: The nearer I come to the Truth the more I hunger; Love is my joy and Love is my calling.

Today’s Contemplation: There is nothing so desirable as Oneness; nothing so desirable as Love. The closer we get the more we hunger; the more Love we have the more we want.  So even as we get closer to the Infinite the more our desire drives us.  Thus all good comes to those who seek first the Divine.

Forbidden

Daily Inspiration: Forbid us something, and that thing we desire. ~Geoffrey Chaucer

Today’s Affirmation: I accept the Joy that human conditions would deny. And my acceptance makes it mine Now.

Today’s Contemplation: Realize that your very humanness would disallow any true Joy and you will find within yourself the incentive to seek unceasingly until it is realized and actualized.  This is true of all the verities of life; Peace, Love and all that brings true fulfillment.

Basis

Daily Inspiration: In the arts, as in life, everything is possible provided it is based on love. ~Marc Chagall

Today’s Affirmation: Love is where I’m at today; creativity and beauty are my play.

Today’s Contemplation: Whatever we choose to do it is also our choice whether it is creativity and play.  We decide.  If we can see it that way we can make it that way.  People under stress laugh at the macabre and ‘strange’ practices lead to different perspectives.  Choose yours to discover the beauty that forever awaits your new seeing.

Truth

Daily Inspiration: If you can not find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it? ~Dogen

Today’s Affirmation: I look within and see the love that is awaiting me; this is the Truth that sets me free.

Today’s Contemplation: All that is outside is an illusion.  The truth can only be witnessed and realized within.  The beauty is this realization can only come with the choice to look within or not.  Choose and discover.

Health

Daily Inspiration: Health is assured when consciousness is uncluttered by negatives of thought and feeling. ~Raymond Charles Barker 

Today’s Affirmation: Healthy mind; healthy body.  I am filled with thoughts of love today.

Today’s Contemplation: True health is a state of mind that is unencumbered by the body.  It starts with thoughts and feelings that control the physical and eventually leads to a complete release of the physical.  When a person realizes consciousness they are freed from any conditions of the body.

Affirming

Daily Inspiration: We are always affirming something.  We affirm we are sick or well, unhappy or happy, that we lack or have abundance.  ~Ernest Holmes 

Today’s Affirmation: Today I choose every thought to be an affirmation of bounty.

Today’s Contemplation: Whatever we affirm with consistency and diligence becomes our experience; not only the what but the how.  If you affirm bounty with struggle then that is how your bounty will come.  If you affirm that you can’t handle the struggle then there will go your bounty.  Choose your thoughts to prosper you in every way; change yourself and change your world.

Resolutions

Daily Inspiration: I think in terms of the day’s resolutions, not the year’s. ~Henry Moore 

Today’s Affirmation: Every sparkle offered up this day touches my heart and blesses me.

Today’s Contemplation: Give yourself permission to notice the beauty of this day.  Let it seep in to such a degree that you must let go of your past just to hold it all.  Release the pain of the past and let this day be the source of your creativity.

Skies

Daily Inspiration: I never get tired of the blue sky. ~Vincent van Gogh 

Today’s Affirmation: The sun shines forever in my heart and blue skies always line my horizons.

Today’s Contemplation: Know only good and only good will come to you.  See the harmony back of everything and the Oneness that binds all.  When your vision finds this level of clarity you will know the blessing for which you live.

Alone

Daily Inspiration: Alone, all alone; Nobody, but nobody; Can make it out here alone. ~Maya Angelou

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today is a perfect day; in all I do I walk in Divine company.

Today’s Contemplation: No one can walk alone. Everyone is always in the embrace of the Divine yet we can turn off all the benefits of this relationship just by focusing on and being mesmerized by the appearance of separation.  This is the only bait in the trap of loneliness.

Presence

Daily Inspiration: Only Presence can free you of the ego, and you can only be present Now, not yesterday or tomorrow.  ~Eckhart Tolle

Today’s Affirmation: I am fully present in the Oneness of this moment; in the magnitude of this One moment.

Today’s Contemplation: Presence is knowing in ones heart the Oneness of the moment inclusive of the self.  It is the realization that “I” and the Infinite are One and “All my relations” are One with God and me.  And in Oneness the ego ceases and all good flows.
