Today’s Quote: A man is what he thinks about all day long. ~Emerson

Today’s Affirmation:  I am blessed to be a better me today.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  It’s not so much what you think about that comes about, rather it’s how you think about it.  The more passion we invest into any pattern of thought the more creative it will be. Most people and communities invest far more feeling into fear than hope whenever they venture into the unknown. Meanwhile those same people invest their total commitment of feeling into acceptance of the status-quo while simultaneously thinking powerless thoughts that ‘change would be nice’.

Today’s Quote: Happiness consists more in small conveniences or pleasures that occur every day than in great pieces of good fortune that happen but seldom. ~Benjamin Franklin

 

Today’s Affirmation:  I am blessed in the sparkle of life all around me in this moment.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation:  There is so much beauty all around us; how could we miss it?   Take the time to notice the many small gifts that show up in your life today.

Today’s Quote: Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will. ~George Bernard Shaw

 

Today’s Affirmation: My imagination is fertile and my life is rich; all is good in my world today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: There are but three stages to creation: Imagination, expectancy and outcome.  There is no will involved except Divine Will; there is certainly no effort involved.  Expectancy is the passion that plays the game before the field is even prepared.  It sees itself at the top when others only see clouds; no effort, no will.

Today’s Quote: The man who makes no mistakes does not usually make anything. ~Theodore Roosevelt

 

Today’s Affirmation: I venture forth today trusting my inner whisper of love.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Because most individuals are not accustomed to listening to the whisper of their soul new ventures usually seem to be great risks.  In such moments of stepping forward we do well to put our whole faith in the outcome achieved.  There is no room for wavering because mental shifting opens the mind to an ever present pressure of social, racial and cultural doubt and fear.  If we stay fixed we remain strong and success is our guarantee.

Today’s Quote: Hope is the power of being cheerful in circumstances which we know to be desperate. ~G. K. Chesterton

 

Today’s Affirmation: The cycles of all life are the cycles of my life today; peace-beauty-joy-creativity… peace-beauty-joy-creativity, right now, everyday in every way.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: ‘Hope’ absolutely recognizes the seasons and knows that with every dark hour there must be a new day dawning. ‘Hope’ trusts that ‘I’ will wake up to see that day just as I have a thousand times before. ‘Hope’ is the most powerful tool enabling any individual to start any long journey to transformation.

Today’s Quote: The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best. ~Epictetus

 

Today’s Affirmation: Goodness attracts goodness; I am surrounded by only the best.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: The process to surrounding ourselves with great people is to see the greatness in every person. In so doing we draw out their brilliance and create an attractor factor that draws an increasing measure of excellence to our every encounter.  It is not an accident; rather it is the perseverance of positivity.

Today’s Quote: It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop. ~Confucius

 

Today’s Affirmation: My only stop is in the appreciation of beauty today; in every way, every action and every breath.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: A perfect stop is a deep and rapturous breath.  We are not struggling to get somewhere. We have already arrived. In every moment where love is remembered, where beauty whelms over the senses, where gratitude squeezes tears from our eyes we have arrived.  And all we can do is stop and become fully present in that sacred moment.

Today’s Quote: From error to error, one discovers the entire truth. ~Sigmund Freud

 

Today’s Affirmation: Even in my greatest fall I am buoyed; faith and a humble heart lift me today.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Often I hear that mistakes cause pain and suffering and so should be avoided at all costs.  The truth is that only the belief in pain and suffering can cause it and when we accept a greater idea our errors become the gift for a greater experience.

Today’s Quote: How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I’m committed to? ~Anthony Robbins

 

Today’s Affirmation: I live love, I give love and my world blossoms forever beautiful.

 

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: Choosing how we are going to live is more about letting go of old patterns than about creating new ones.  When we let go of every pattern all that remains is love, it is the foundation and the structure of all life and the promise to every person who has forgotten.

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.
