Improve

Today’s Quote: Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound, ~James Allen

Today’s Affirmation: Today I grow beyond the ‘me’ I used to be.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Just as the common desire is to improve ones circumstances without improving oneself, the common belief, or fear, is that one must change oneself in order to truly change ones experience of life. The truth is that there is nothing to improve. The only necessity is to release all that keeps one from knowing their innate perfection. Let go of beliefs, let go of fears, let go of judgments, doubts, righteousness and blame; let go of it all and witness the return of bliss.

Spirit

Today’s Quote: I find that it is not the circumstances in which we are placed, but the spirit in which we face them that constitutes our comfort. ~Elizabeth T. King

Today’s Affirmation:  Infinite Divine potential resolves into the perfect action for every opportunity now before me. I am more than enough for this day.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  When life is embraced with Divine optimism based on a deep understanding of spiritual principles great forward strides can be made.  If you have that understanding you know what I am saying and there is no stopping you.  If you don’t then you will find it is the greatest gift you can give yourself. Begin today; ask the happy ones why they are happy and recreate.

Circumstances

Today’s Quote: Circumstances are the rulers of the weak; they are but the instruments of the wise. ~Samuel Lover

Today’s Affirmation:  All my circumstances are stepping stones to a greater me; I take the step today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In order to elevate oneself on the circumstances of ones life ownership must be assumed.   I must first accept that my tendency of thought is the creative pattern for everything that in any way happens to me.  Only then will I be inclined to look deeply at my thought patterns and change them when adversity arises. Only then will I begin to discover true freedom.

Opportunity

Today’s Quote: Do not wait for ideal circumstances nor the best opportunities they will never come. ~Janet Erskine Stuart

Today’s Affirmation: My challenges of today are the fertilizer to my joy.  I turn them over and add plenty of love; only good can grow in my soul today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: I get from life what I make of life in every moment.  And always the moment I become aware is the perfect time to take action.  It never serves to belabour the past; it is done.  Simply seize the emotional charge from the past issue that comes up in the moment and direct it toward release of the old and renewal of the vision, then let the Infinite do the rest.

Today’s Quote: When we can’t find peace in ourselves it is vain to look for it elsewhere. ~Proverb

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today I take a re-fresher moment in my inner Divinity.  All the love; all the peace I need abides in that Divine spark alive in me.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The capacity to seek in others and in circumstances what is already present within us in immeasurable quantities is one of the greatest failings of human nature.  We already have all the love, joy, opulence and sustenance we will ever need or desire; we simply need only turn away from the misinformation of our senses to In-formation of our hearts.  Abundance abides right here, right now, for everyone, everywhere; it is here – simply waiting.

Today’s Quote: On what principle is it that, when we see nothing but improvement behind us, we are to expect nothing but deterioration before us. ~Thomas Babington Macaulay

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today I am on a trajectory to heaven; all is good that comes to me.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Our circumstances are forever bound to our perspectives.  Our beliefs define our outcomes.  We must actively choose to see a better world now if we would choose to live in a better world tomorrow.

Today’s Quote: Hope is the power of being cheerful in circumstances which we know to be desperate. ~G. K. Chesterton

 

Today’s Affirmation: My hope is the precedence of good profits upon my happy actions.  I express great cheer and hopefulness today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Forever where right action, the action of loving compassion, has been used it has proved fruitful.  Who am I to resist such long lasting results?  Rather today I would choose to go with the natural flow and add to the richness of life.  This is hope.

Today’s Quote: You are an extremely valuable, worthwhile, significant person even though your present circumstances may have you feeling otherwise. ~James Newman

 

Today’s Affirmation: All my challenges are my memories; I created them and I release them!  Harmony begins today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Too often in our harsh judgment of our selves we make ourselves bad for the things we have done.  We are Not our experiences, we are Not our actions!  We are the quiet voice within forever whispering to our soul “You are great, you are lovable, you are the beloved of my being.”  And today would be a perfect day to start listening to that voice first.

Today’s Quote: People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be. ~Abraham Lincoln

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today I choose to be happy; in every moment I take the high road and see the opportunities.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Happiness is not a product of our circumstances it is the effect of our choices.  When we choose to add to the goodness around us, when we choose to honour a tendency of peace within ourselves we will find ourselves feeling happiness as a general by-product; no effort, just outcome.
