Today’s Quote: Sometimes I go about in pity for myself, and all the while a great wind is bearing me across the sky. ~Ojibwa saying

Today’s Affirmation: I am blessed beyond my knowing; even in the invisible moments I am blessed.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Self pity only steals away the beauty of life. It blinds the perceiver to the gifts of the senses, the very gifts that free one from the cycle of self-pity. One cannot simultaneously feel self-pity and gratitude; therefore it is simply a matter of choosing. When the individual truly decides they have suffered enough only then will blessings begin to appear.
