Deepening

Daily Inspiration: Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit. ~Khalil Gibran

Today’s Affirmation: As I let you in I let God out; I grow in Love through transparency today.

Today’s Contemplation: The common human tendency is to keep some place ‘within’ safe from intrusion; the fear of complete vulnerability. The greatest value of relationship is the opportunity to let down those barriers and discover, in our vulnerability, we actually become stronger. The friendship with nothing to hide is by far the strongest, the deepest and the most completely filled with love.  This is relationships only true purpose.

Today’s Affirmation: As I grow friendly with my heart today I discover greater depths to all my friendships.

Today’s Contemplation: The only action necessary to the development of meaningful friendships is the development of a loving, healthy relationship with self.

Friendship

Today’s Quote: Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together. ~Woodrow Wilson

Today’s Affirmation:  I honour my friends as I honour myself; with loving appreciation.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: It is ultimately consciousness (awareness of feelings and desires in the moment) that determines the depth and quality of ones friendships.  This starts and ends with ourselves; when I am truly alert to my feelings and desires and act on them I must also do likewise for those I love because love is connection.  Such integrity is a salve to every soul in a world of digital and distant relationships.

Value

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  Every person has overcome immense adversity to arrive in this place where they stand today. In embracing the challenges of friendship, or even living with ourselves, this must be acknowledged.  It is so important to relinquish judgment in order to experience the true joy that is the promise of every relationship. And the power of love extended can never be understated. Today I bring love to all my relations.

Friendship

Today’s Quote: The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love. ~Hubert H. Humphrey

Today’s Affirmation: I show up, I am present, I listen and I love. In this company of angels I am blessed by and beyond my attention.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: We need not cater to stupidity in order to court our divinity.  We simply need engage with compassion and speak directly to the divinity behind the behaviour we see.  This is the meaning of ‘Namasté’, ‘The God in me greets the God in you’.

Therapy

Today’s Quote: The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love. ~Hubert H. Humphrey

Today’s Affirmation: I love myself and I love my world and everything comes out right.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Could it really be a coincidence that lovers of life are loved by life; that those who give consistently to and unreservedly are forever supported in their smallest needs?  Only you can decide, and the evidence of your own life will be the proof of your life; although a close study of those who are happy in their lives will be the best evidence of the outcomes you are seeking and the promise of your final success.

Today’s Quote: To the soul, there is hardly anything more healing than friendship. ~Thomas Moore

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today I see through every action to the call for love that inspired it; I see all my friends for who they really are.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In order to be the friend I would choose to be I must see through my story and their story to the call for love that has spawned the thinking, words and actions in every moment.  To the degree I can do this I can be a friend free of co-dependence.
