Go

Today’s Quote: Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told, I’m with you kid. Let’s go.’ ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation: Spirits got a hold on me and I’m taking the fast train to happiness today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In order to experience the fullness of life we must be proactive and willing to embrace the Go0dventure of life. This means doing before delegating. This means saying ‘Yes’ to opportunity and walking into the uncomfortable; and this means embracing the harmless path of noble service. ‘We gotta get our hands dirty’ with feelings, emotions and the raw physical grit of real living.

Home

Today’s Quote: If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love. Don’t be surly at home then go out in the street and start grinning ‘Good morning’ at total strangers. ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation:  I bring it home; all my love, all my joy, are delivered into the heart and home that animates this life.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: If I don’t know love for the ones who are closest to me I don’t know love at all.  I am simply pretending love in my urge to get more.  I will know my love for myself when every life that touches mine fills me with joy and laughter.  Only then will I be giving the love I would choose to celebrate in the world.

Release

Today’s Quote: I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back. ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation:  I let go of the need to hold on today; greater things are coming my way.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: When we come to realize we are in the flow of Infinite good just as the fish is in the flow of the ocean of water we will finally stop with our clinging.  Only then will greater things begin to come our way and greater events fill our time.

Diversity

Today’s Quote: We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry

are equal in value no matter what their color. ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation: I rejoice in every celebration finding appreciation for diversity in my heart and relationships today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: It is no wonder that we grow old and die when our every action is to take from life in order to have life. There is but one life so any act that detracts from another takes from our own spiritual bank account and leaves us bankrupt before we have discovered life.  Make life a giving today and remember it through this month.

Caring

Today’s Quote: If you find in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded. ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation: I love all I see because I love me and in all I see I look back at me.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In the realization that God, Life, Infinite Intelligence, is One comes the awareness that ‘I am one with That’.  From there the searching soul realizes that every life is that One Life individualizing and each is one with all others.  In such awareness fear and conflict disappear replaced entirely by caring, compassion and love.

Care

Today’s Quote:If you find in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded. ~Maya Angelou

Today’s Affirmation: My life is a joy because I Bring Joy to all my relations.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  Life begins and ends in relationship; the happier, the deeper, and the richer are our relationships the better off we will feel.  Nothing in the human experience is so close to the Infinite as a relationship, in it the Divine reveals Its power.  How are your relationships today?

Today’s Quote: We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. ~Maya Angelou

 

Today’s Affirmation: As I realize the beauty that I am I discover a tapestry of beauty in all I see; all is God’s magnificence.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Even in the most pain filled moments, the dirtiest, the darkest scenes there is beauty; be the witness and feed your soul.  The greatest importance in seeing all beauty is in its capacity to increase simply by our witnessing. Our world literally becomes better, brighter and richer by our awe-filled observance of it.

Today’s Quote: If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don’t be surly at home then go out in the street and start grinning ‘Good morning’ at total strangers. ~Maya Angelou

 

Today’s Affirmation: I love from my source and it spreads to my ‘All today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: When we start by giving that first smile to ourselves we infect the one who is most important with a contagion that spreads like a ripple from heart to heart and on to the farthest shores of our substantial influence.  Each one of us, in love with self and world, can add to the transformation that is in full swing in our world today.
