Today’s Quote: Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival. ~The Dalai Lama

 

Today’s Affirmation: I live from Love every day, I live it everywhere; I Live from Love Right Now!

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Compassion is the continual question, “What would Love do Now?”  And the constant reminder that “I” do not know, yet still I am willing.

Therefore subjectively I have created business beyond even my capacity to keep up; and now unconsciously my thoughts are screaming enough. So undoubtedly with the help of my consciously directed thought in a few days or weeks this business will come back into balance. What is most important for each of us to remember through these times of adversity in our lives is the power of our consciously directed, disciplined and focused thought. 

So often we think, if we think at all about it, that our thoughts are simply random meanderings that have little or no impact on our lives.  After all we have all had random thoughts of many kinds of disaster and they have apparently had no real outcome.  Yet I warrant that every thought we have has a cumulative and measurable result in our lives; every thought.  This was the foundational teaching of the great master Jesus.  He taught us that no man should judge another for as it says in Proverbs “as a man thinks in his heart so is he”.

This same understanding has been well understood through the spiritual teachings of the east, prompting the practice of meditation, of becoming the observer, as a fundamental practice in their discipline.  

Even today with the awareness of the value of meditation few western people practice it for the very simple reason that we remain uncomfortable with the low level of our thinking, we remain unwilling to take responsibility for it.  I do not believe I am the only person on this Spiritual journey who has discovered how much of my less than conscious thought has been consumed by fear, anger, resentment and other forms of dis-eased thinking. 

It is exactly this lack of willingness to look within and observe our thinking that allows us to believe that our disease and discomfort is caused by external values.

Today is a good day to become aware of my inner thinking.  Today is a good day to change that thinking.  Today, simply by being conscious I can change my thoughts of dis-ease; fear, blame, resentment; to thoughts of appreciation, caring and self love.  I invite you to join me.

In Love and Light,
