Blessed

Daily Inspiration: It is a beautiful and blessed world we live in, and while life lasts, to lose the enjoyment of it is a sin. ~A.W. Chambers

Today’s Affirmation: Every breath is a joy today; my attitude of love brings much good my way.

Today's Contemplation: When one knows that the world and all of life is good that is exactly what one experiences.  This does not mean that challenges don’t come up. It simply means that, given a chance, all challenges open the doors to greater joy and deeper meaning. When embraced as a blessing every experience resolves into greater good.

Conviction

Today’s Quote: Wherever you go… go there with all your heart. ~Anonymous

Today’s Affirmation: I am committed to Joy today because I am Joy; all I bring is Joy and all I express is Joy.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Selfless conviction is the most powerful force of creation. It is the only guarantee of outcome and in the company of vision can shape a dream, a life and even a whole world. Selfless conviction is the fabric of life itself, even the definition of life. One Life gives Itself completely to all that It Is. This is the only true power there is and the one who aligns becomes that Power.

Today’s Quote: The crisis of today is the joke of tomorrow. ~H. G. Wells

 

Today’s Affirmation: There is no thing so serious as my choice for joy today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: There is never any value in dramatising ‘what is’.  Whatever has happened simply occurred out of a need to fulfill some past pattern of thinking.  Your new thought today is the only true process for the transformation of drama into joy.  Let go of all mental chatter that would make wrong the perfection of this moment.  Thus your choice today can be the laughter at the joke of insufferable self annihilation through the negative thoughts of yesteryears.

Today’s Quote: You probably wouldn’t worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do. ~Olin Miller

 

Today’s Affirmation: As I look within life unfolds, great opportunities are revealed and joy becomes way.  I am unruffled by the opinions and actions of my world this day.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: When I am in alignment with the One Life it follows that I am in alignment with all life because the truth is that there is only One Life.  Therefore all life (including people) must naturally align with any actions springing from my high intentions.  As I come to trust this completely it is revealed completely as harmony and synchronicity.

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: God is so simple that truth, sincerity and simplicity are the nearest copy we can make of Him. ~Janet Erskine Stuart

 

Today’s Affirmation: I simplify my life and live for joy today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Often we hide from the beauty of life in the complexity of our twisted stories.  The only path to joy is to simplify, simplify, simplify and all simplification is most quickly achieved through transparency.  If I am hiding how I feel then I am telling my world a lie and limiting my capacity for joy.

Today’s Quote: For every minute you remain angry you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Today’s Affirmation: Every second is my gateway to joy today.  I willingly take sixty seconds to breathe into my happiness Now.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Which feels better; ‘happy’ or ‘mad’.  On this basis alone I choose happiness. I step away from the condition and I take as much time as I need to breath into the clarity of the Divine.  I return to Love whenever conflict arises because it feels better than any alternative; and that is the only tolerable choice.

Today’s Quote:

Remember man, as you walk by,
As you are now, so once was I,
As I am now, so shall you be,
Remember this and follow me.
~Tombstone in England

 

Today’s Affirmation: I grab onto life and live it today.  I make joy my banner and mainstay.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: When we live fully in the moment, bringing joy to all we do there is an abundance of time to enjoy this human experience.  It is when our plans for tomorrow and our debts of yesterday consume us that time seems to escape from between our fingers.  So give fully to this day and make it count.

Today’s Quote: Joy wants to inhabit us and not merely drop in for a visit. ~Dorothee Soelle

 

Today’s Affirmation: Life blazes a path of joy in my life because I show up ready for my good.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Get up and get out there; and don’t take ‘No’ for an answer.  This is a ‘YES’ day; every day is a ‘YES’ day when we decide to make it so.  All we need do is decide to walk away from our need to be right, our need for retribution, our need to feel sad or fearful or confused, and embrace the happier side of life.  It really is that simple.

Today’s Quote: We shouldn’t make ourselves miserable over somebody else’s bad choices. ~Joyce Meyer

 

Today’s Affirmation: I live from my heart and bring joy to every breath I breathe.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: It take s conviction, a determined choice, to stay centered in my own heart for me to sail in the seas of the worlds emotional confusion.  In order to do this I must restock my human-ship at least daily with a fresh supply of Soul Food.  I do this through meditation, reading, writing and continually expressing my appreciation and gratitude.
