Busyness

Daily Inspiration: It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about? ~Henry David Thoreau

Travel

Daily Inspiration: Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. ~Mark Twain

Today’s Affirmation: I travel the world and I see the Love; everywhere I go It is the driving force.

Today’s Contemplation: When we travel we experience people of great ethnic diversity and witness that always in their daily lives, just as in ours, Love is the driving force.  When we see genuine Love our bigotry simply disappears; it dies for it cannot feed on Love.

Happiness

Daily Inspiration: Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. ~Mohandas Gandhi

Today’s Affirmation: Happiness is mine today for I am aligned with my God centre; the breath of Life.

Today’s Contemplation: Many people believe happiness is a fickle thing based upon our thoughts and experiences of any given moment. This is one level of happiness.  It is anchored in the senses.  There is another level of happiness far more powerful, far more lasting; based upon an entities alignment with Oneness, the heart and Life. The latter remains unruffled by the flow of time while the first is caught up in every passing event.

Difficulties

Daily Inspiration: Difficulties increase the nearer we get to the goal. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Today’s Affirmation: I recognize the joy and release the challenge. My path is laid upon my heart and all turns to good today.

Today’s Contemplation: Difficulties are natural. They are the process of stretching into the unknown.  Everyone with a dream is stretching into the unknown.  And the nearer we get to the dream the more we move into the unknown which simply means more challenges to be moved through.

Success

Daily Inspiration: There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure. ~Colin Powell

Today’s Affirmation: I have learned and I have grown; today I claim my success.

Today’s Contemplation: Every moment is a success over the last when one proceeds knowing that God work is happening. Every step brings greater joy as one walks in that presence.

Listen

Daily Inspiration: We connect through listening. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well intentioned words. ~Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.

Today’s Affirmation: I listen deeply, with my heart and soul.  I listen to my friends, to the whispers in the wind; I listen to Spirit wherever I go.

Today’s Contemplation: I have learned to listen; to the words, Yes, and to something deeper.  Every word carries a subtle vibration of the intention back of it; the gift of Love or the call for Love.

Past

Daily Inspiration: We can draw lessons from the past, but we cannot live in it. ~Lyndon B. Johnson

Today’s Affirmation: I take the best of this moment now and make it better.  And that is the Power of my Love.

Today’s Contemplation: The past is simply a memory of how we would choose to live. Make the choice to make it better and let go of the rest; this is what growth is about, this is what life is about, and this is what happiness is about.

Resiliance

Daily Inspiration: We are stronger, gentler, more resilient, and more beautiful than any of us imagine. ~Mark Nepo

Today’s Affirmation: I see the radiance within that makes every person beautiful; I love all my companions on this path today.

Today’s Contemplation: At the heart of every being there is pure brilliance. The only question is how to remove the shell of nothingness that never belonged.  If any brother or sister fails to be magnificent in my eyes then I have failed.  I must choose to see that magnificence and let it shine.
