Hearts

Daily Inspiration: The human heart, at whatever age, opens only to the heart that opens in return. ~Maria Edgeworth

Today’s Affirmation: My heart is opened wide as I discover the Beloved inside.

Today’s Contemplation: To discover one person who loves you in your life is to discover the One Power that has found Its way into every heart.  Once this power of Love is realized it will forever be available to the one who turns within fully surrendered.  Find the light within and set your world free; and I will join you there on the side of Love.

Exchange

Daily Inspiration: To you the earth yields her fruit and you shall not want if you but know how to fill your hands. It is in exchanging the gifts of the earth that you shall find abundance and be satisfied. Yet unless the exchange be in love and kindly justice, it will lead some to greed and others to hunger. ~Kahlil Gibran

Today’s Affirmation: I give freely with complete abandon for my source is abundance itself.

Today’s Contemplation: Giving comes from the heart.  If there is no heart in it then it is not giving. When this is understood then giving will become the core of one’s life and the one who gives so richly will be blessed with the bounty of Life Itself in every way conceivable.

Seeking

Daily Inspiration: Spiritual seekers look for self-realization or enlightenment in the future. To be a seeker implies that you need the future. If this is what you believe, it becomes true for you: you will need time until you realize that you don’t need time to be who you are. ~Eckhart Tolle

Today’s Affirmation: I have arrived into my joy today and spread peace and love in my wake.

Today’s Contemplation: The only key to enlightenment is to let go of every action of the heart, mind and body that would stand between you and happiness. This does not take time. It is simply a decision that is reaffirmed in every moment; a decision for love, for peace, for joy. The world is awakening, today is your day to be a part of that.

Communion

Daily Inspiration: When we set aside time each day for deep communion with the infinite, then, as surely as day follows night, the light of inspiration will illuminate our beings. ~Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith

Today’s Affirmation: Today I give time to the sacred; I find my inner sanctum and bring light into my world.

Today’s Contemplation: The art of transformation is the art of focus. Focus upon the desire with as much consistency as possible and in due course it will come to pass.  When it is fully realized your focus is a communion then the light will come and all things will begin to work easily in your favour.

Blessings

Daily Inspiration: We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace. ~William Ewart Gladstone

Today’s Affirmation: My good continues better and better as my love flows forth.

Today’s Contemplation: The time has come and the place is here. The power of Love is fully Present. It is simply awaiting the realization of It’s presence. That is my job; I look at all that comes to me and see only love looking back.  What I see most becomes the world I live in.

Within

Daily Inspiration: The true enemy is inside. The maker of trouble, the source of all our suffering, the destroyer of our joy, and the destroyer of our virtue is inside. It is Ego. I call it, ‘I, the most precious one’. ~Gehlek Rimpoche

Today’s Affirmation: I hear my inner critic and I laugh, and I laugh, and I laugh; in truth there is only love within.

Today’s Contemplation: The identification of the belief in separation is the great insanity of humanity and the only cause of any suffering of any kind.  The only sane choice is the choice that comes only with the realization oneness and that choice is always the same; “What would Love do now.”

Boundless

Daily Inspiration: The love of one’s country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border? ~Pablo Casals

Today’s Affirmation: My love is boundless and my reach is unbounded.  Wherever you are my heart has touched you.

Today’s Contemplation: There is neither time nor distance in the fullness of God; and there I am, you are, we all are.  The very thought of you brings all my love into the embrace of your soul and in that moment you and I are One.

Abilities

Daily Inspiration: When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’. ~Erma Bombeck

Today’s Affirmation:  I am generous with my abilities; with them I add joy to life today.

Today’s Contemplation: Abilities are gifts that we have brought into this world in order to make it better for everyone.  When we neglect to use them to make life better for all they atrophy, they are taken away by our own lack of generosity.  This is the full meaning behind the story of the ten talents.

Words

Daily Inspiration: Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself, or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. ~Don Miguel Ruiz

Today’s Affirmation:  I examine every word for its sweetness before I let it go into the world today.  Only joy goes out from me.

Today’s Contemplation: Ones attention to the words one uses is generally reflected in the measure of joy one experiences. Make every word reflect your highest desire for life as it passes by your heart and enters into the world.

Joy

Daily Inspiration: We must enjoy each day–one at a time. We are here on a short visit. Be sure to smell the flowers. ~Alfred A. Montapert

Today’s Affirmation:  I notice the little moments on this very big day.

Today’s Contemplation: Let every day be your biggest by noticing the small exchanges and encounters that open your doors to more love.  Expect to experience joy in those moments of routine;  God is alive and present in every moment.
