Yearning

Daily Inspiration: Do not seek after what you yearn for, seek the source of the yearning itself. ~Adyshanti

Today’s Affirmation: Today I set my sights on Peace; and I get it.

Today’s Contemplation: We often identify our needs and desires with the objects we see as the deliverance of those desires.  Truly the deliverance is in the clear knowing of the actual desire for that is what the Infinite responds most easily to.

Forgiving

Daily Inspiration: The forgiving state of mind is a magnetic power for attracting good. ~Catherine Ponder

Today’s Affirmation: I forgive; I let go and the Infinite fills me to overflowing.

Today’s Contemplation: Forgiveness is letting go.  It is an awareness of an all encompassing power that can accept anything and reveal the rightness in it.  And that ‘rightness’ must be there because all of everything is of that Oneness and individualizing into the appearance of something.

Soular

Daily Inspiration: The more faithfully you listen to the voice within you, the better you will hear what is sounding outside. ~Dag Hammarskj

Today’s Affirmation: I listen to my heart and hear the whisper of my soul today.

Today’s Contemplation: When one is attuned to that inner voice it is natural to be attuned also to the needs, desires and joys of all those in ones mental proximity. This natural tendency exists because at that inner level we are all one and are privy to each others thoughts like echoes in the ocean.  There is radar, there is sonar, and now we discover ‘soular’.

Within

Daily Inspiration: There is a place in each of us that is so beautiful, angels smile in its presence.  That presence is who you really are. When you can stand spiritually naked, look at yourself and like what you see, you have achieved a great feat. ~Ron Rathbun

Today’s Affirmation: I find the place of my magnificence today and give it to the world.

Today’s Contemplation: You know you have found your true beauty, your true magnificence, when you feel no shame to stand fully exposed to all who would choose to see you. On that day heaven will not be far away.

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 let myself be with the magnificence within.

Today’s Contemplation: Simply being in that presence is enough. It is effortless and totally achievable, and the blessings just keep on coming.

Principles

Daily Inspiration: It is often easier to fight for one’s principles than to live up to them. ~Adlai Stevenson

Today’s Affirmation: Today I live by example and let go of my battles.

Today’s Contemplation: No battle will ever be won.  For every battle is out of integrity with the truth of Oneness.  Strength is in surrender; let go and realize that you already have all that you are, and, all that you are is good.

Map

Daily Inspiration: The map of abundance and joy has always existed. It has always been about the basics. Sometimes we just forget what the basics are. ~Earnie Larsen

Today’s Affirmation: I follow the map; it leads to my heart, I follow my heart; it leads to my riches.

Today’s Contemplation: A map is a multitude of signs and symbols that, when interpreted correctly, will lead one to the promise of their desire fulfilled. How are you learning to read your map?

Fishing

Daily Inspiration: Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. ~Henry David Thoreau

Today’s Affirmation: Today I find what I have been seeking; Peace in my soul.

Today’s Contemplation: We go places; we do things, always for one simple purpose.  We go to find that deep peace. To find that place where innocence has never been lost and happiness warms the heart.  Sometimes we go fishing, sometimes it’s painting, or dance or climbing.  Always in search of the silence within where Love forever flows.

Action

Daily Inspiration: Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all – the apathy of human beings. ~Helen Keller

Today’s Affirmation: Today is my day for Action and I take it.

Today’s Contemplation: Vital action follows every effective thought as surely as your next breath follows the one released.  Take your next breath now and begin to build your dreams today, even if it to only let your mind play on it for a piece of time.

Today

Daily Inspiration: Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today. ~Cherokee Indian Proverb

Today’s Affirmation: I am free of the past.

Today’s Contemplation: Today forward is always created in this moment. It may be very human to judge tomorrow based on yesterdays experiences, still it is a most ineffective practice for any person who would choose to better their circumstances. The best practice is to reinvent the tomorrow of your choosing based on your dreams for a better life.
