Path

Today’s Quote: As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. ~Henry David Thoreau

Today’s Affirmation: I carve a deep path into my bliss today; I think a stream of thoughts that draw happiness my way.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Make your decision and move forward unwaveringly.  Anything less is an insult to your creative intelligence.  Whether it was the best choice or simply an impulse that doesn’t appear to be working out the path itself will shape you into a greater expression and experience than any amount shifting paths will bring you.

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.

Morality

Today’s Quote: Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something. ~Henry David Thoreau

Today’s Affirmation: I choose today to live in alignment with my integrity; I act upon my morals.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Having high standards is meaningless if one does not act upon those standards. Some people are good at the rhetoric. Still all change comes from action. Act today, act in small ways; even the small actions accumulate to make for great changes. Such action is more than good for morale; it is spiritual evolution and growth in the individual and the world.

Tonic

Today’s Quote: We need the tonic of wilderness. ~Henry David Thoreau

Today’s Affirmation: As I embrace nature today I discover the nature of my being; I am Love.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The harmony of the Indivisible is wilderness to the individual. Yet the human soul which forever knows it’s Infinite truth will see through the apparent chaos to natures overarching perfection. And peace will come to the uncomprehending human mind like the embrace of a mother to her child.

Fashion

Today’s Quote:Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new. ~Henry David Thoreau

Today’s Affirmation: Wherever I look I see everyone clothed in the latest fashion of Love and Peace; Life is exquisite.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: How is your fashion?  Does it give you a false sense of specialness or does it help you see the wholeness of all life?  It is not in the clothes we wear that we set ourselves apart.  Rather it is in the way we see.  True fashion always accentuate the Divine magnificence of the individual and brings radiance to the company one keeps.  It is in what we see not in what we wear.
