History

Daily Inspiration: History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely only after they have exhausted all other alternatives. ~Abba Eban

Today’s Affirmation: I am fully present in the power of Now and only the influences of this moment direct my loving actions.

Today’s Contemplation: History can only govern the one who is governed by human nature; that would be most everyone.  Fortunately, for the individual, human nature is the play of unconscious tendencies and fears of alienation. In every life tendencies can be shifted by a conscious direction of the mind and to the one who transcends the fear of isolation and directs their mental stream toward a higher vision the power of history is dispelled and that one becomes free to rewrite history.

Craving

Daily Inspiration: The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated. ~William James

Today’s Affirmation: All that I am is the source of my appreciation and I blossom in Love today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The need for approval is the most profound disease of the human condition driving people to make all manner of ‘bad’ decisions for perceived approval. It is not possible; no external fulfillment can ever bring satisfaction until one realizes the innate truth of every life, the Source is within. Only when the search outside ends will true joy be discovered. Look within today, that is where your happiness awaits.
