Steps

Today’s Quote: Who can know, in the moment of temptation, the terrible consequences that will result from one wrong step? ~E. G. White

Today’s Affirmation:  I surrender and discover Love in the midst of my adversity.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: No one shall live without temptation.  It is almost certainty that sooner or later every person shall succumb to those temptations; in fact most will not go a day without giving in somehow.  Therefore the only answer is to surrender and turn the attention to a higher good.  In loving service all suffering is mitigated and every debt is eventually paid.

Consequences

Today’s Quote: Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune. ~William James

Today’s Affirmation: I make right decisions and act in right ways today as I recognize the importance of all my past decisions.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Memory is the first tool of conscious evolution.  Nothing inspires right thinking and right action so powerfully as the memory of our past choices. And the greatest gift we give ourselves is to recognize that it makes no difference whether we are remembering our own experiences or those of another; we learn from every memory.

Overcoming

Today’s Quote: Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune. ~William James

Today’s Affirmation: Yesterday is gone.  Tomorrow will never arrive.  Today is my opportunity and I seize it Now with passion.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Two simple pieces of information favour letting go of your past story.  First; you really did do the very best you could with the information and circumstances available in every moment.  And second; no matter how dark and painful those past experiences may have been, and no doubt some were very excruciating, they brought you to this moment to think and act in a new way for that life you would choose to live now.  Let today be the first day of the rest of your life.
