Anger

Daily Inspiration: For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today’s Affirmation: I bring all my anger into the Light of Love today; the Light is One, I am One, my anger is no more.

Today’s Contemplation: All anger is an attempt to make somebody else wrong and every attempt to make another wrong only reinforces a false belief in separation which only means that one is now stuck with the toxicity of ones own anger. Know Oneness and all anger will be lost.

Truth

Daily Inspiration: In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act. ~George Orwell

Today’s Affirmation: I listen to my heart, I am not deceived. There is One Life; that Life is God’s Life and that Life is the Life I Am.

Today’s Contemplation: One is best to know the truth, act on the truth and speak the truth.  And when one stumbles be gentle for the self is governed by the senses as much as the heart and only through gentleness will it surrender its grasp upon sense addictions.

Light

Daily Inspiration: We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ~Plato

Today’s Affirmation: I stand with eyes wide open and all I see is the Light of Love stretching out before me.

Today’s Contemplation: In order to see the Light we must be willing to see only the Light.  In this decision the darkness will lose its appeal. With this loss of appeal the substance of light will continually gain a greater foothold in our minds until we truly do see only the Light.  And what we see is what we become and what we experience.

Laughter

Daily Inspiration: Laughter is the tonic, the relief, the surcease for pain. ~Charlie Chaplin

Today’s Affirmation: The Joy has come before pain was conceived and my day is celebrated in divine bliss.

Today’s Contemplation: There is the laughter of innocence; that giddy excitement when wonder fills all the senses of a child in a field of butterflies and sunshine and daisies. This is the laughter that springs from my lips daily as I gaze through the veil of appearances upon the splendour of the paradise of my Beloved within.  It is the laughter of scales of magnitude and the richest of all joy.

Conforming

Daily Inspiration: Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth. ~John F. Kennedy

Today’s Affirmation: I conform to the face of God and discover my infinite potential and unfathomable depths; I Am Love.

Today’s Contemplation: One can never truly conform to what one is not. Not only would it be forever uncomfortable but ultimately impossible. Yet each is an individualization of the Godhead and thus in this can discover the comfort, the beauty and the joy of conforming to the Infinite Love that It is.

Stamina

Daily Inspiration: Stamina is the force that drives the drumming; it’s not really a sprint. ~Neil Peart

Today’s Affirmation: Every beat of my heart is the pulse of my passion; my excitement starts with being alive.

Today’s Contemplation: Every person can discover stamina. It is simply a matter of coming to know oneself.  For a few, stamina may show itself as the ability to press forward without a break through the hours.  For most it is the capacity to press on day after day and year after year knowing this is the only path that gives breath and meaning to ones life.

Strength

Daily Inspiration: You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength. ~Marcus Aurelius

Today’s Affirmation: I choose my thoughts and nurture my ideas- I grow by self direction, patience and love.

Today’s Contemplation: Power over ones mind is the power to choose the thought landscape one lives in. Just like a garden we can groom our thoughts and nurture the ones we love. Each person will naturally better at fostering some thought tendencies than others yet with practice anyone can grow any new way of thinking; start today.

Seeing

Daily Inspiration: All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything. ~Swami Vivekananda

Today’s Affirmation: I embrace the Oneness of my being and see its perfect reflection in all my world.

Today’s Contemplation: We can learn to see multiplicity without believing it is separation. It is by measuring, comparing and judging that we create separation because what we choose to see we also choose to create. When multiplicity is once again seen as shades of Oneness then Oneness will be remembered and experienced.

Friendship

Daily Inspiration: Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit. ~Khalil Gibran

Today’s Affirmation: As I grow friendly with my heart today I discover greater depths to all my friendships.

Today’s Contemplation: The only action necessary to the development of meaningful friendships is the development of a loving, healthy relationship with self. This is more than saying “I love myself.” It is also about being successful, happy and loved by others. True self love will always be reflected in all friendships.

Ownership

Daily Inspiration: Justice in the life and conduct of the State is possible only as first it resides in the hearts and souls of the citizens. ~Plato

Today’s Affirmation: For every wrong I see I have work to do on me.

Today’s Contemplation: If one has influence over conditions through the nature and pattern of ones thinking, and all evidence points to this, then it follows that one is also responsible for what one sees and experiences in the world.  Simply stated; “What I see is part of me.”
