Habit

Daily Inspiration: Being miserable is a habit. Being happy is a habit. The choice is yours. ~Tom Hopkins

Today’s Affirmation: Joy is my choice and Happiness my habit Today.

Today's Contemplation: Happiness feels good and suffering feels miserable. When one trusts ones feelings the choice is obvious. If we learn one thing on our spiritual journey today let it be that we not subjugate our feelings to the rationalized thoughts of righteous judgement. If I want to feel happy then I will feel happy because it is my choice.

Happiness

Today’s Quote: Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder… ~Henry David Thoreau

Today’s Affirmation: There is someone who wants my smile today. I give it and change their day.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Whatever ones dreams are they are never so big that one can afford to ignore bringing joy to another life. The success of ones dreams has a direct relationship to the hearts and lives one touches. Touch someone today and enrich your own life.

Master-Key

Today’s Quote: Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Today’s Affirmation:  With One Master Key I unlock and set free all the joy in every heart today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Every challenge, every roadblock and every unresolved conflict is a master lock holding back only happiness.  We can spend a lifetime finding each key and unlocking each issue or we can turn to the Source, get the Master Key of loving compassion and, in a moment, unlock them all.  The Source is forever present wherever we are; It is the Source and Truth of who we are.  In one moment of surrender we become the gift of all happiness.

Today’s Quote: The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things. ~Henry Ward Beecher

 

Today’s Affirmation: I am the wellspring of happiness; wherever I go joy is sure to follow.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: We can only extract from our environment what already abides within us.  I can never find fear at the heart of love yet can always find love, joy and beauty at the core of all that is.  Therefore it is apparent that we are love, joy and beauty as our essential truth and can always find these qualities in the world wherever and whenever we choose to see them.

Today’s Quote: Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. ~Robert A. Heinlein

 

Today’s Affirmation: I bring peace to my soul and joy to my world today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: We all know deep down that we can only truly bring happiness to the ones we love if we have a genuine display from a heart already in love with itself.  I must first give myself the gift before I can ever truly give to another; If I really love them I will honour me first.

Today’s Quote: The Master has no possessions.  The more he does for others, the happier he is.  The more he gives to others, the wealthier he is. ~Tao Te Ching

 

Today’s Affirmation: I own no love yet that is all I leave today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: As I am possessed by Love I am love.  This is the secret to prosperity and happiness.  When an individual returns completely to the memory of who s/he is, to Love, then all the rest resolves in abundance for the great glorification of this simple truth.  What we all want to learn is that we can have abundance and happiness as we journey into this awareness simply by being true to our intention to return to Love.
