Blessings

Today’s Quote: There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from. ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Today’s Affirmation: I am blessed today to be free to live my life more completely.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: To maintain a mental atmosphere that, ‘Only good can come of this happening’, because, ‘I know that good is all there is’, is all that will be necessary in order to turn most confusing events into great transitions.  It is simply an act of faith in the innate nature of life to support life.  It has been doing this through all conscious memory and must be doing this now, even in this apparent uncertainty.

Hurried

Today’s Quote:Life is a glass given to us to fill; a busy life is filling it with as much as it can hold; a hurried life has had more poured into it than it can contain. ~William Adams Brown

Today’s Affirmation: My life is rich and full and, being in the moment, I savour its sweetness.  I am released from any need for more good.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  How often are we fully present?  The sweetness of breath; the fragrance and freshness of aromas; the amazing shades and colours that cascade upon our every waking moment are more richness than the soul can comprehend in an instant.  And yet people hurry to do more and celebrate less this majesty that permeates and co-creates with every Spirit.  Take some of that precious time to enjoy these sweet, small wonders today.

Believe

Today’s Quote:Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you greater than any obstacle. ~Christian D. Larson

Today’s Affirmation:  Today I choose love, joy and peace; on this foundation I re-create my world.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Believe in your capacity.  Every life improves as the individual embraces elevated standards in relationship; learning, practicing and acting.  The better we are to others the better we become and the better our lives become.  The practice is very simple, maybe that is why so many people complicate it so much, they believe challenge must be a part of growth.

Likes

Today’s Quote:I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. ~Winston Churchill

Today’s Affirmation:  I see One Life and in all I see that Life smiles back for in all I see I see only me.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: When we look at life with joy we see harmony and balance, when we look from hurt we see only wounds and when we look from anger we see only violence.  We are the authors of our circumstances and our emotional predisposition is the penmanship that does the scripting.  And today is a perfect day to start rewriting the rest of our lives with Joy.

Exaggeration

Today’s Quote:Admit your errors, before someone else exaggerates them. ~Andrew Mason

Today’s Affirmation:  I am who I am, open, transparent and willing to grow.  The façade falls away today as I embrace my love of play.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every instant the human mind is awaiting the opportunity to judge, it always seeks to find fault and affirm separateness in measures of better than or worse than. Our Divine selves know there is only One life and so, willingly, acknowledge the flaws of all human perceptions. In the master there is no attempt to ‘look good’ because it is known that all appearances are deceptions of the truth.

Name

Today’s Quote: Little evil would be done in the world if evil never could be done in the name of good. ~Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Today’s Affirmation:  God is painless and pure and it is all I know.  I am in the heart of heaven in the joy that whelms over my soul right now.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Let’s get it right! If it doesn’t feel right to every soul everywhere it is a lie, it is a confusion of the ego and the deception of our littleness.  And it will never bring a single soul home to the bliss and joy waiting on the other side of our threshold for pain. Today I listen to my heart, I am attentive for that feel good feeling that is the promise of joy to all I meet… and I act upon it.

Forgive

Today’s Quote: Parents forgive their children least readily for the faults they themselves instilled in them. ~Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Today’s Affirmation: I forgive myself today for all I believed yesterday.  I let it go until all that remains is love; this moment, love.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In order to forgive those who stand closest to us we must first forgive ourselves.  When we have forgiven ourselves there is nothing left to forgive in any other.  We are all the authors of our pain, our joy, our Lives; and the judgments we adhere to are always the chords that bind us to our own suffering – or our serenity.

Today’s Quote: Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. ~Carl Jung

 

Today’s Affirmation: I heal old hurts in the soothing balm of loves release and bring more love into my life today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: If I am feeling as much love as I am capable of today then the only way left for me to increase my experience of love is to heal my past. This is the only effective way to increasing our measure of joy, peace and love and it is done through letting go of the stories we unconsciously tell ourselves of what ‘they’ did to ‘me’.  This is what is meant by forgiveness.

Today’s Quote: Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you’ll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others. ~Jacob M. Braude

 

Today’s Affirmation: I live for me, I give to me; I build bridges of love through my inner transformation today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every perception of fault in another is a deflection from the real issue; me.  Can we come to know that whatever we see out there is simply a reflection of the pain, the joy; whatever we are feeling within.  Every issue is a call to us to love ourselves.  Every action we take must in the end be an action to resolve the wounds we each hold and bring forth more love into our own souls.

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.
