Openness

Daily Inspiration: The more a man is imbued with the ordered regularity of all events the firmer becomes his conviction that there is no room left by the side of this ordered regularity for causes of a different nature. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: In all that is ordinary today I remain open to the extraordinary.

Today's Contemplation: The majesty of every day lies in the miracles that happen in the midst of our orderly and ordinary affairs. The greatest gift any of us can give ourselves is to remain open and attentive to those majestic schisms in an otherwise perfectly normal day.

Example

Daily Inspiration: Example isn’t another way to teach, it is the only way to teach. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: My integrity is my example; I let my principles move me into my ideals today.

Today’s Contemplation: Example is not about models to illustrate concepts. Example is about living in integrity with values. It is not something we choose to do; rather it is the only way we can do. And with every action and every decision our lives express our deepest values and beliefs.

Intuition

Daily Inspiration:  The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: I step from my heart into my world today responding with love for love in every moment. I act from Divine Intuition in every moment.

Today’s Contemplation: Follow your heart.  When your actions are sowing seeds of peace in every heart you know you have picked the right path. Accept nothing less than the best for all, in this you will be assuredly blessed.

Education

Daily Inspiration: The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: My feelings are my teacher today and my instructor is my heart.

Today’s Contemplation: The Law is Love and the Principle is Creation. One must teach only Law and learn only Principle. With practice all appearances and conditions are released as reflections of a deeper truth. And in the end all that will matter is this deeper truth; Love and Law, Creation and Principle.

Turn

Today’s Quote: In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: In my moments of today I turn from the shadows and look to the light.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Few people understand the power of consistency; they think one or two quick affirmations are going to change their life. We must completely turn our attention away from the difficulties and as consistently as possible maintain our attention, our thought and feeling, on the fulfillment of our desiring. This may take a thousand affirmations a day when the problem feels overwhelming.

Miracles

Today’s Quote: There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: I live, move and breathe in a continuum of Miracles. Love touches all my senses today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every breath is a miracle; every ray of light that touches the eyes and every sound that touches the ears. What steals this kaleidoscope of miracles away are the opinions, judgments and beliefs one holds. If you choose to see the miracle that awaits your every turn you will turn away from your old opinions and develop new ones starting right now.

Sense

Today’s Quote: Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age 18. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: I let go of every common notion and embrace the uncommon wisdom of the Infinite within Now.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: We all have a deep knowing and are capable of surrendering into it.  Within it lies all knowledge all wisdom and the path to every perfect outcome.  The challenge lies in surrendering because it cannot be commanded by the intellect yet it is always available to the surrendered soul. Surrender today and be free.

Living

Today’s Quote:Life isn’t worth living, unless it is lived for someone else. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: I live my life, I give my life, finding God in every heart.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  All the good we ever receive comes through another.  It is in relationship that the Infinite shows up and only through relationship can joy be found.  If you want more joy give more of yourself into the joy of your relationships; find the moments to laugh, to smile and to praise another.  Life is wonderful when we make it that way.

Artist

Today’s Quote:I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation:  I am One with the Universal Creativity, in every moment inspired to express with success.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: True creativity is measured by its capacity to bring to the artist (and we are all that) joy and success. Therefore the most important aspect of every creation is to eliminate the old belief in limitation, struggle and failure.  Until we do this, no matter how magnificent our castles in the sand are, we have not actually created anything.  Creation is of the Infinite, it is the celebration of that inward richness, the expression, the medium, is simply the effect and the real creation is the blossoming of love and joy in the heart.

Simplify

Today’s Quote: Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler. ~Albert Einstein

Today’s Affirmation: God is All, God is One, I Am That.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  Can a person conceive of being the oneness of all life, all substance, all there is, while still maintaining a sense of uniqueness?  It is possible; and when any of us can conceive this we will be standing on the threshold of our true self.  In that moment multiplicity merges into oneness through the eye of the beholder.
