Values

Today’s Quote: We can tell our values by looking at our checkbook stubs. ~Gloria Steinem

Today’s Affirmation:  I give in a balanced way from a life that reflects equilibrium, harmony and surplus today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: If we checked our debit and credit records where would we find our money going?  To our homes, families, work, recreation and food; would we actually find a record of giving to the source of our spiritual good?  What we give to grows! When we give to our spiritual source first we build a foundation and all areas of our lives reflect the commitment with growth and harmony.

Fiction

Today’s Quote: Truth is more of a stranger than fiction. ~Mark Twain

Today’s Affirmation:  In a world seeing conflict I see only harmony; I see my world into being today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  If all one believes is fiction then how can truth reveal itself?  If a person is convinced that everyone is a fully self determining individual how can that person conceive of oneness?  Only in surrendering the belief that one is right, that one actually know anything, can the truth be revealed.  Until then the life bound in belief will equally be bound in illusion.

Today’s Quote: It isn’t enough just to do right things and say right things – you must also think right things before your life can come
into harmony. ~Peace Pilgrim

 

Today’s Affirmation: I bring my mind to happy thoughts consistently and definitely.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The nature of our thoughts is the one area where we can begin to establish control even if the rest of our lives are completely out of control.  And until we begin to establish this control and affirmative pattern of thinking things are unlikely to improve substantially in our affairs.  The question eventually comes to each one of us: “When would I like my life to improve?”
