Within

Daily Inspiration: What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us. ~Henry David Thoreau

Today’s Affirmation:  In the midst of ‘anything’ I look within and find my own peace and happiness.

Today’s Contemplation: The choice to turn within is the most challenging choice any human can make.  Our infatuations with the conditions of the world, of our lives, even of our bodies, are overwhelmingly seductive.  Take time to go within every day; take time to break the addiction.

Tolerance

Daily Inspiration: In the practice of tolerance one’s enemy is the best teacher. ~Tenzin Gyatso

Today’s Affirmation:  I accept the blessing of my obstacles today; I release and find peace today.

Today’s Contemplation: When faced with challenges always look for the obstacle within; the cherished belief, the false blessing, the illusion of power.  Let it go and let discover the only true peace; Oneness.

Living

Daily Inspiration: With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today’s Affirmation:  I choose this moment to experience my joy, for this moment is all I have.

Today’s Contemplation: Only in the moment we are in, can life be experienced fully.  And that moment can only be as big or small as the story we tell ourselves. So let your story blossom with Love and realize your freedom now.

Access

Daily Inspiration: Who hath access to the universal mind is a party to all that is or can be done. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today’s Affirmation:  In my heart I hold the key, unlock the door; and claim the life I choose to see.

Today’s Contemplation: There is a great responsibility upon those who see the Truth for they must live it in order to show the way. First the thought then the action; think only love and let it bind every encounter;  “What would Love do now?”

Improvements

Daily Inspiration: How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~Anne Frank

Today’s Affirmation:  I make changes today because I choose to bring more love into this moment.

Today’s Contemplation: Positive change naturally occurs when any individual stretches into a better version of him or herself.  And the urge to be better is universal.  It rises from the very foundation of who we are.  Improving the world is as natural as growing our adult teeth. Don’t resist it; simply celebrate your own inevitable good.

Distilled

Daily Inspiration: When all your desires are distilled; You will cast just two votes: To love more, And be happy. ~Rumi

Today’s Affirmation:  Love and Happiness in every moment of every day; this is the only choice I make for me.

Today’s Contemplation: The only real choices in life are for love and happiness this is what is back of every decision we make.  So skip all the distraction of ‘other’ choices and focus directly upon your true hearts desire; Love and Happiness.

Achievement

Daily Inspiration: Through meditation and by giving full attention to one thing at a time,
we can learn to direct attention where we choose. ~Eknath Easwaran

Today’s Affirmation:  I practice a singular focus upon my deepest desire today.  I know with determination and action it comes my way.

Today’s Contemplation: One must have the desire, the attention, and the tools as well as the opportunities to make their dreams come true.  And with the right direction I believe everyone of us can achieve this.

Redefining

Daily Inspiration: If you believe that you can damage, then believe that you can fix. ~Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

Today’s Affirmation:  Life is mine by believing; today I ‘believe’ it wonderful.

Today’s Contemplation: We change our lives by redefining inevitable as the power of good.  When we do this our choices naturally change and we move into a higher dimension of relationship.  Our affairs begin to unfold in an upward way, consistently moving us into more enriching encounters and opportunities.

Perfected

Daily Inspiration: I never perfected an invention that I did not think about in terms of the service it might give others… I find out what the world needs, then I proceed to invent. ~Thomas Edison

Today’s Affirmation:  I choose now to live the remembered Life.

Today’s Contemplation: I have discovered that the world only needs to remember; remember love, remember peace, remember power and joy.  When we see it in another we see it from our own selves and as we see it we grow into it and the world is made right forever.  Remember your true passion, your true self today.

Service

Daily Inspiration: The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. ~Mohandas K. Gandhi

Today’s Affirmation: My nature is service; and I bring good wherever I go.

Today’s Contemplation: Once you have truly found yourself service will be the only choice.  Service to self, to the Infinite and t every life that crosses your path.  You will discover again and again that service is its own greatest reward.
