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.

Spending

Today’s Quote: The greatest use we can make of life is to spend it on something that outlasts it. ~William James

Today’s Affirmation: I give my life to the eternality of Love. It is my source, my supply and my lasting joy.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The love that lasts in my heart lasts for all eternity. It is the result of some event touching my soul; a communion, a moment when the identification with the belief in separation has been forgotten. Love is the only experience of eternal in the mundane. It is the Identification with the verities of Life itself; peace, beauty, joy and all other names for communion or atonement.

Overcoming

Today’s Quote: Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune. ~William James

Today’s Affirmation: Yesterday is gone.  Tomorrow will never arrive.  Today is my opportunity and I seize it Now with passion.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Two simple pieces of information favour letting go of your past story.  First; you really did do the very best you could with the information and circumstances available in every moment.  And second; no matter how dark and painful those past experiences may have been, and no doubt some were very excruciating, they brought you to this moment to think and act in a new way for that life you would choose to live now.  Let today be the first day of the rest of your life.

Beliefs

Today’s Quote: Belief creates the actual fact. ~William James

Today’s Affirmation:  I believe in a joy filled world and I am living it Now.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: There is no power comparable to the power of real belief. It is the total body of any persons thought system including the uninformed patterns of a subjective childhood and can be changed only by focused, unwavering and consistent new thoughts.  It takes faith, discipline and, more than anything, a community who support and believe with us our new ideas.
