Destiny

Daily Inspiration: It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves. ~William Shakespeare

Today’s Affirmation: I quit the blame game, own my life and make it right with loving-kindness today.

Today’s Contemplation: Owning one’s life means changing one’s life.  Changing one’s life means doing something different.  Do something different today, something that makes a difference out of you.

Solitude

Daily Inspiration: Loneliness is the poverty of self; solitude is the richness of self. ~Eleanore Marie Sarton

Today’s Affirmation: Wherever I go there God is; wherever I look, there I see God; whenever I’m alone God is with me.  I am Blessed.

Today’s Contemplation: Find the Divine within and you will never be alone again.  All that is necessary is to let go of the thought that you could ever be alone. Solitude; me in with God alone and all that Love.

Trust

Daily Inspiration: Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none. ~William Shakespeare

Today’s Affirmation: I trust the Divine in all I meet and give nothing to the confusion but pour forth my love.

Today’s Contemplation: There is only Love in all this world that lasts; so give your love. Yet every person wraps that love in a human body isolated and separate and protects it in a delusion of fear.  Give nothing to the fear neither substance nor energy but give right past it to their heart of Love.

Cost

Daily Inspiration: The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run. ~Henry David Thoreau

Today’s Affirmation: I give my whole self into all that is worthy of my love today.

Today’s Contemplation: When I learn to give my whole self into all that brings joy to me I discover there is nothing left to give to anything less than Love.  In that simple realization I pay the full price and set myself free.

Out

Daily Inspiration: We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. ~Alan Watts

Today’s Affirmation: I am here to discover ‘me’.  Today I take the challenge.

Today’s Contemplation: The experience of life is one of growth.  Can I be transformed by this experience?  That is the only question worthy of asking.  Each of us has come into this experience in order to learn first; and to the degree we are successful, to celebrate life.

Thinking

Daily Inspiration: There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so. ~William Shakespeare

Today’s Affirmation: Only good can come of this, even this.

Today’s Contemplation: It might not be easy to accept that my thinking can make something good that my heart screams to me is bad but it is always possible to believe that only good can come of it.  Yet even this simple exercise can be a test of mental faculty to befuddle the average person.  Fortunately you are much more than average.

Exempt

Daily Inspiration: Things done well and with a care, exempt themselves from fear. ~William Shakespeare

Today’s Affirmation: I know I am on the right side of my passion; I am engaged in it with consciousness and only God is revealed in my choices.

Today’s Contemplation: When we truly find our passion we no longer take short cuts.  Yet shift keeps happening and we feel our joy increasing from day to day as all our problems dissolve and diminish and heaven creeps on in.

Seconds

Daily Inspiration: God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say ‘thank you’? ~William Arthur Ward

Today’s Affirmation: Thank you God for this perfect day; I am grateful for your reflection, for your presence, in all that I see, all that I feel and all that touches any of my senses.

Today’s Contemplation: Gratitude is creation because it is an act of Love.  It is unfiltered purity of thought.  Take a few seconds, or more, and express your gratitude today.  You will be a wealthier person for it.

Observing

Daily Inspiration: The highest form of intelligence is the ability to observe without evaluating. ~Jiddu Krishnamurti

Today’s Affirmation: In this moment I see the intricacies of Oneness and my loving thought adds to this Tapestry of Perfection.

Today’s Contemplation: The condition of humanity is to find a better way.  What if there is no better way.  Just observe.

Another

Daily Inspiration: God has given you one face, and you make yourself another. ~William Shakespeare

Today’s Affirmation: I am One with God; for me there is no other; thus Love is mine today.

Today’s Contemplation: The problems of this world are so simple; we have beguiled ourselves into a belief in separation.  ‘We’ is simply the many ways that God can look upon Itself with Love.  When I awaken to this I become witness to the profound Love that is All that I look upon; All that I can look upon. I Am that, I Am.
