On Character…

“ Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think. ” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I believe … I Know…that each one of us is whole, perfect and complete.… Attributed to our Oneness with God.

And… I know that each one of us can YOU-tilize our daily choices… Even the ones we define as insignificant… To help us along the path of our Spiritual growth.

I see Character as that Elegance within each of us. To live a life of character… Of elegance describes that inner refinement… That personal grace…That natural and Authentic Power from within.

Today… I invite YOU to choose… To live …to act elegantly! Tend toward truth, beauty, courage… Be Bold… And you will surely support your life with quality in every dimension.
Of this, I am certain!

BE The Source within YOU…Now!

110716On Living Truly…

“If we live truly, we shall see Truly.” Ralph Waldo Emerson,”Self-Reliance”

We see what we want to see. We hear what we wish to hear. And… We understand that which we want to understand.

Seeing is believing! And…when we truly see … we are seeing that which is invisible to the naked eye. We are envisioning and affirming our confidence in tomorrow by operating
Utilizing the experience and expression of Faith!

Opening your mind to the possibilities… What can be and what you want… Is, indeed, a state of Mind, as well as, a state of mine!

Today… I invite YOU to draw a detailed picture of how you want your life to look… To feel…… To smell… And to BE. Imagine the impossible… And make it possible!

Today… I invite YOU to see with your heart. The Truth then follows. Of this, I AM certain!

BE The Source within YOU… Now!

On Tolerance …

110216

“When I am kind and tolerant, I am well-pleased with myself.”
-Ernest Holmes

 

To tolerate is to say… And you are different from me… No better and no worse… As I am different from you! And that’s just fine with me!

Keep in mind… when We allow others to be themSelves…without criticism or judgment… We let go of the need to control. We let go of making others live by the same rules that we do. And by allowing others to be themSelves, so long as it does not hurt others, and Believe in what they want to believe in… we encourage their uniqueness and individual.

It is then…and only then…That we practice tolerance!

Tolerance, gently invites peace to enter our life, as well as, the lives of others … An open heart… And loving thoughts and actions.

Today… I invite YOU to allow tolerance to enter your life… And, thus, BE liberated. For it is truly through tolerance and stop judging and begin loving!

BE The Source within YOU… Now!

Have a Magnificent day…Everyday!

On Dreams…

Today… I invite you to expect success in every area of your Life. Ask yourSelf… Am I expecting abundance, rich relationships, and fun… Or am I my expecting struggle and chaos.?! Do not forfeit your ability to realize your Life on Purpose… For IT is yours Right here …and your Right now… so long as You choose it!

Today… I invite You to dream big: Yes…that’s right…don’t hold back! Close your eyes and envision that which you desire in every area of your life. Be brave and courageous! Suspend, at least temporarily any self-defeating thoughts that would have you settle for a life that does not meet your needs or honor your values! Create your dream vision with the expectation that “The How” of manifesting this reality will be available to you through that awesome Authentic Power within you!

Today… I invite You to articulate and honor your most important values. Our values are the threads that make up the fabric of who we are as individuals. Our values are those qualities that demand to be honored if we want to be in Joy. Some examples of core values …that GOD Stuff…are Love, Adventure, Freedom, Family, Peace, Joy, Intimacy, and Abundance… Just to name a few. Ask yourSelf… If I have to choose between this and that… what would I Select?

Today… I invite you to be clear about your vision. Gain some clarity about how your vision reflects You…your core values. Ask yourSelf… “Am I an expression of my passion and my values?”

Today… I invite You to make all that You are experiencing and expressing fun and exciting… And about others, as well! To be truly Powerful! Creating your vision is something that is much greater than about just you alone… That something you can do on your own… Something that must involve and positively impact the lives of others.

Today… I invite You to Live deliberately… To Live passionately, enthusiastically… To Live on intention and Purpose!

On Magnificence…

“But there is something else very great, it makes the whole coincide, it, magnificent, beyond materials, with continuous hands sweeps and provides for all.” -Walt Whitman

This is the Truth that I Know.

The Magnificence of who we are is seeking to express ITSELF today. That awesome Presence…God… with in us… As us… Through us, is absolutely calling us to become more and more of who we are. As I speak this word now… In this very moment our seeds of greatness are growing and spreading in infinitely and unlimitedly new and creative ways… Those insights of Infinite Mind, Excellence, and Intelligence… all within each and everyone of us.

Right where we are now, God…Infinite Mind…Absolute Truth… Love , Is that which is blessing us beyond our fondest dreams and imagination… Ultimately becoming our Reality. Just as I AM Being asked, You are Being asked to step into the master plan of your Life… Identifying, accepting, experiencing, and expressing all of the Authentic Power within You.

Now is the time for Divine Right Choice… For Divine Right Action. Now is the time to Live the Life we Desire … Rather than a life of default. Of this, I AM certain.

On Loving Life…Divine Love…

“Such is the power of right thinking that it cancels and erases everything unlike itself. It answers every question, solves all problems, and is the solution to every difficulty.” –Ernest Holmes

I Love Life… And Life Loves me… Now!

So many of us may be, at times, feeling that our lives are constricted, closing in around them… Given our economic times.

But… this is what I Know to Be the Truth. We are living in spacious times, open times… abundant and flowing times…”Open at the Top” times…for each and every day, doors and windows of opportunity abound!

Today… I invite You to not look backwards into what was, or what might’ve been. Do not concern yourSelf with that what you feel you may have missed… or “mistakes” that you have made. Look forward! And know that the wind is blowing at your back… Freshening the future before you. Feel the newness as you experience and express your freedom!

While shackles… those challenges and struggles…have, at times, bound all of us… Today… I invite you to lose and loose the shackles of misunderstanding and false belief. Walk out from behind the bars in judgment… There is no jailer to stop You. These bars are there only as long as you allow them to be. Of this… I am certain!

BE The Source within YOU…Now!

102116On Mind…

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” -Earl Nightingale

This is what I Know…
Power of the mind is breathtaking! We have the power and the ability to influence our state of health and well-being… Our feelings of happiness and joy through the mind.

However, our thoughts are also capable of creating stress, pain, and anxiety.
The patterns and habits which we have built up through the years bring us to where we are today… In the Now… to how we think, and how we treat others.

Ask yourSelf… “Am I continuing to try to change events from the past?”

It is often hard to change our ways… And even harder to rewrite history.

So… How about a change in our perspective?
How about a change in how we view both the past and the present, as we commit to reframing our expectations of the future? How about making the choice to not use destructive thought patterns to process what goes on in our life?

How about focusing on what is in our control… Our behavior and actions… And forget about what we cannot control… The behavior and actions of others!

Today… I invite YOU to stretch the possibilities that life offers you by enriching your mind with positive, life-affirming thoughts …To challenge your present way of thinking. Keep growing and learning… Keep changing!
Just as software continues to improve with each generation, we can improve how we think. In matters of the mind… We are the programmer, and the updated versions hold endless possibilities!

On Happiness…

“The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so.”
~Robert G. Ingersoll

You can’t have a better tomorrow if you’re thinking about yesterday.

You can find happiness today… If you only dare to look around you. Look into the eyes of your child. Reach out to hold your lovers hand. Give a friend a hug she needs.

Happiness is found in the here and now… In the people that touch your life, and whose lives you have touched. Happiness is found in the body, life, and Spirit you live today… With all its imperfections and uniqueness!

Happiness cannot be seen with the naked eye. Alive in your heart, happiness asks only to be recognized, celebrated, embraced, and valued. It shines from within you! Of this, I AM certain!

So… Today I invite YOU to Know The secret to finding lasting happiness. To see the invisible… That which cannot be seen by the naked eye… That which lives in your very Soul!
It’s easy to be happy during good times. During the challenging times, seek that which cannot be seen… For they are blessings in disguise!

BE The Source Within YOU…NOW!

“There is a Divine Urge within, ever pushing us forward to the goal. Creativity is intelligence having fun.

-Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

Divine within us is a magnificent and wonderful thing! We, gratefully, have the responsibility to the heart-filled gifts and attributes we have been granted… To honor them, to live them to their fullest, to offer them to those all around us… And to share them with our planet!

We have been given a grand and glorious task of the ability to create all that we desire. Our Soul… That Spirit courage and boldness… that Knowingness … Provides all that is necessary to take us out of the ordinariness of our days… Along with the vast canvas to create a masterpiece!

Today… I invite YOU to be bold and courageous!

“Anything you can dream of is not too great to undertake.”
-Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

It is often a precarious balancing act… Dreaming, goal setting and meeting, moving, growing… And trying to keep faith and hope for a better tomorrow… All the while staying grounded in the present moment and appreciating the blessings that we have.

However, it is not impossible. Know that the possibilities are infinite and unlimited… With our feet on the ground, And reaching for the stars, we savor each moment!
And dreaming is good… Very good… Or how else may we achieve the impossible, but to believe that the impossible is possible?!

So… Time to put aside any fears and doubts!
Tomorrow offers unimaginable possibility. We can do anything! So long as we set our mindset to believe!

Today… I invite YOU to create joy and harmony in every waking moment!
Believe in yourSelf! For to do so… Creates endless possibilities!
Of this, I AM certain!

101116On Worry…

“Worry is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained. ” -Arthur Roche

We have all spent time in our life worrying and trying every technique known to earthlings to stop worrying. Well… The reality is we don’t have to worry so much!

When someone mentions that they are worried, my heart goes out to them. Whether it’s personally, or regarding a friend or loved one, we’ve all been at that place where we worry for days about something… That we often cannot control, which ends up just fine anyway! What a waste of time and energy!

I actually worry less than I used… not Never… But much less. I’ve learned to trust my Self more… And more in my capacity …our Authentic Power from within-we all have it…to handle that which life may proverbially throw at me.

And here’s another thought… The more we come to deeply know our thinking talents and trust in our capacity to cope… The less time we have to spend in worry!

“ Your future depends on many things but mostly on YOU. ”
-Frank Tyger

As we consider the three time components to life… Yesterday, today, and tomorrow… Let’s quiet that noise in our minds. Let’s except ourselves and our life for what it is.

How About trusting more and worrying less? I dare you to compare yourself to no one!
I’d love you to love yourself… And fear nothing… As you forgive all pain from the past… Knowing that your losses make you more humanly lovable!

And as you identify with this and act upon it… You have arrived at the place called Peace of Mind… A place where few reside and many seek!

Today… I invite YOU to value the preciousness of your life… And deepen your personal feelings of inner peace. Now is the time to give yourself the greatest gift of all… The Peace of Mind to let go of the past, to live in the present and to let tomorrow BE!

Let The Source BE with YOU…Now!

100516On Self Trust…

“And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.”
-Erica Jong

As I awaken each and every morning, I have a conversation with mySelf in the mirror. Looking straight into my eyes,
I state a few things… One of which goes like this. I say, “Yes…Yes… Yes… to today! Today will be the healthiest, the happiest, the most loving, and prosperous day of my life!”

So… What do I want to say yes to today? I know a lot about what I do not want to say yes to… What I don’t like to eat… What I don’t want to do over the weekend, relationships I do not wish to have.
Yes… We all have those things we wish to say “no” to… Sometimes “yes” things seem invisible. Sometimes we are stuck, as a consequence of not being willing to take risks… Of not being willing to risk saying “yes” to things which not visible to us.
Taking that risk may actually serve us in remarkable ways! Of this, I AM certain!

Today… I invite YOU to trust yourSelf! What I know is that to find our yeses, we have to trust that we are worthy of receiving our hearts desire… As well as, capable of discovering what will make us happy!

Try it… You just might Like IT!

On Time…

“ Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. ”
-Steve Jobs

So… This is what is True for me right Now… In this moment in Time!

For me… For each of us… Our Truth is our Truth. IT exists outside anyone else’s desires, opinions, feelings.
When we Trust ourSelves… We honor our Truth… Although, at times, it may conflict with the wishes and hopes of others… Even those for whom we deeply care.

We can’t guarantee that others will see things our way all the time… Acknowledge our feelings… Support our decisions… Or join in with us. However we cannot let any of that stand in our way!

What we can do… Is to state in a loving and nonconfrontational manner…

“What is true for me right now is…”… Whatever that might be for you.

“What is true for me right now is that I am too tired to talk with you.”
“What is true for me right now is that I’d like to spend some time alone.”
“What is true for me right now is that I need to have less chaos and less drama in my life.”

Today… I invite YOU to try out this powerful and purposeful or day. When we say it like that we tell ourselves what our need is in this moment. We make it clear what our Truth is right now… Although it may not be true in the future.

Because we are not asking for agreement, it increases the possibility that the other person will speak their Truth, as well… Rather than try to argue you out of yours.

On Divine Connection…093016

“There is and can be no separation from God.”
-Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

Remember… Our Spiritual dimension experiences and expresses through our human dimension… Our earthlingedness.

Joan of Arc, for me, remains an example of an individual who trusted herself because she trusted that she was tapped into …The Source of all Good That which is greater than herself. She identified with her Godling Self… Not merely her earthling self… For she ever so placed her trust in the Creator.

For those of us who place our trust in a higher power… However we understand it, and whatever we call IT…God, universe, love… We are also trusting in the reliability of our Self as a receiver. It is essential to trust our Self… Our Authentic Power and Intuition from within… To trust in God. Just ask Joan… Who fully understood and expressed this!

Today… I invite YOU to choose the beliefs that strengthen your capacity to trust your Self!
Divinely choose… And your capacity for Self awareness, Self acceptance, and Self reliance will grow leaps and bounds.

On Love…

“I dwell in the house of love. My house is a house of love.” -Ernest Holmes
The Science of Mind

As I gain wisdom with years, I’ve come to understand that love is not something given to us. Rather, we give love to ourselves when we let it in and open to embrace the very essence of life. The reason we are here on this planet is to love and to be loved.

Love is truly enough… Though the world maybe waiting for something more. We are waiting for something more because we have been conditioned to believe that there is someone or something outside of ourselves that will make us complete. Not so… For love and God are synonymous… Which means God is enough… For God is all there is! Really!

And …as I reflect upon the wisdom I’ve gained through the years… I have come to recognize my discipline of the care and nurturance of love in my life. I liken this discipline to the discipline I have passionately persisted in as a long-distance runner for the last 41+ years. I run in the heat, wind, rain, the sun, and while visiting my family and loved ones on the East Coast… I run in the cold and the snow.
My discipline is the result of my love for running. Therefore, care of discipline is, indeed, Love!

Today… I invite YOU to open your heart and embrace the discipline of nourishing your Spirit with Love!

On Love…

“Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings it’s melody to the night. To awake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.”-Kahlil Gibran

When we discover the anchor in our Self our sense of insecurity evaporates… And our capacity to love becomes less needy and truly more bountiful!

And … When we don’t need our love relationship to be our security blanket… That’s when love is lifted out of the mundane…That transaction, if you will… You do this for me and I’ll do that for you.
That’s when love serves its grandest purpose in our lives… To enable us to grow more loving and giving!

Today… I invite YOU… To trust yourSelf! For it is then… And only then that we have the potential to experience and express Love in all its power, majesty, and magnitude!

The Science of Mind

We are not solitary creatures.
Barbra Streisand spoke volumes when she sang, “People who need people are The luckiest people in the world”.
Friends satisfy our need to be part of a group… With supportive and nurturing… Like minded and like hearted people surrounding us.

We want to align and share with a caring person …lending support… where we feel understood… Our sense of well-being is strengthened… We then Experience and express wholeness!

Today… I invite YOU to think about who your true friends are. Who is on your team? Who is in your tribe?
As well… Who do you lend support to?

Let your True friends know that you love them… That you cherish them!
And while you are at it… Love and cherish yourSelf… For it is then that we become the best support system to others, as well as ourSelves. It is then that we find Safe Haven from our every day storms.

Always know in your heart… That you are not alone! Of this, I AM certain!

191916On Trust…

“Trust yourself, then you will know how to live.” -Goethe

Are we ever really sure… Of anything? Do we question our decisions… With whom we love… The business or career we choose… The location we decide to live?

Still, we move forward believing that we are following our heart.
Peaceful mind may doubt at times… But it does so with an eye toward tomorrow, in the hopes of making new and better choices…Not in mere reflection on things that can’t be undone. It trusts!

Mindless doubt… The kind that is stuck in regrets and sorrow, keeps peace at bay. Letting go of this kind of “what if” thinking … Trusting… Makes room for the knowing that what is happening is happening to us for a purpose.

Today… I invite YOU to know deep inside that your choices have brought you the experiences and lessons that have served to carry you to where you are today.
Our choices continue to fulfill a purpose in creating our world… And will continue to do so so long as we move on the path toward greater peace of mind… Trust!

When we follow our heart… When we Trust … And make decisions with forethought and circumspection, we will not go wrong. Of this, I AM certain!

There is a security that comes with peace of mind that does not reside on the material level. IT is the inner knowing in confidence that you are safe… And that things will work out for the best… For your highest and best good… That your dreams and desires will manifest.
Faith is the key to feeling secure. It’s not the size of your house, bank account, the car you drive, or security system that can comfort you. It’s knowing that God…Infinite Mind…is here… In you, as you, through you, beside you, above you, beneath you.

“All seeming change is merely the play of Life upon Itself; and all that happens must happen by and through some inner action upon Itself” – Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

Life is for the living.

Everything that is alive is changing moment by moment. Here we are in harvest season… As autumn leaves turn colors & fall, only to be reborn in the spring. Clouds give way to sunny skies. Sorrow in one moment is replaced by joy in the next. Sickness and disease is healed.

When and where there is no change…there is no Life!

Today… I invite YOU to embrace Life by welcoming change into every area of your Being!
Question that which feels safe to you…. And then change it.
Make fear your friend.
Try something different…from reacting unexpectedly, to wearing a new hat.
Make new friends.

And… If you are not yet following your heart, change that, too… And follow that Wonderful heart of yours!

On Choice…

“Destiny is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.”
-William Jennings Bryan

We can live our life making excuses and rationalizations for all that we do not have. We can live our life as if all has been “done” to us… And all that we can’t become.I choose to follow my heart… And have faith in mySelf…My Godling Self (not my earthling self)…In God, and believe that all my dreams can come true

How about you? What is your choice?

By forgiving old hurts, learning from the past, and, at the same time, fully living in the present you are purposed and poised to make good choices.

When we review our life in terms of the choices we have made… And have yet to make… We empower ourselves to create a future of our making… Based on personal choice

Today …I invite YOU to forgive the past. To live fully in the present to make wise and loving choices for your future. To take personal responsibility for all that happens… And to throw away excuses!

Do not hold back… And don’t worry about making mistakes!

In the words of author Robert Fritz, “If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise.”

Along the way… We all have experienced obstacles. Perhaps divorce, illness, family problems, financial drama, legal woes… Or even death have taken their emotional toll.
Somehow… I call IT my Authentic Power from within… My Godling Self… We’ve straddled and overcome those bumps in the road.Whatever your particular brand of coping… Now is the time to appreciate what you have overcome, obstacles surmounted, and the strength and empowerment amassed to rise above life’s inevitable challenges.To some extent… Obstacles are just what we make of them. Obstacles… In other words… Are as big and bright, or a small and dull as you make them. They are subject to our interpretation.Courage in the face of adversity is the stuff of heroes… Perhaps not the ones we hear about in the newspaper… But the ones who may be living right next door.Today …I invite YOU… To recognize obstacles of the path, and egg knowledge your accomplishments and overcoming them… For it is then that we are surely best prepared for today’s challenges.Remember… With a heightened sense of Self, our obstacles become our opportunities!Let The Source BE with YOU..Now!Have a Magnificent day… Everyday!

Our prayer is answered before it is uttered.” -Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

Accepting your life for what it is …and not what it was, or what it could be, is an essential step towards finding your inner peace.

Too often we cloud our vision of the world… And our lives… With beliefs that don’t reflect reality. The “real” reality…the one that exists independent of anyone’s personal spin…is often very different.

By looking at reality with a 20/20 vision, you will undoubtably enrich your world! Look at your life beginning today. Count the many blessings that you have. Affirm some of the blessings that may apply to you in this very moment. Realize that blessings come in many shapes and many sizes.

Today… I invite YOU to look at what you have… Not what you lack. Look at what is… Not what could be. Remember that others, like you, are driven by internal forces… So don’t take everything personally!

And …most of all …be kind to yourself! You are your own best friend!

So… Begin today to count the many blessings that are YOU!

Know the Truth… Whatever we have been blessed with is multiplied when we share it with others. When you do… You get. Not at all in the sense that you give in order to receive… But in the sense that by giving, you receive in return unexpected blessings, Goodness, and success!

When you find that you are caught up in your own challenges and fears… The best recourse is often to distract yourself by reaching out to someone… By being in Service to others!

Other-directed living becomes a way of life. For me… It feels great to touch another’s life with my heart and spirit… With love… As well as possessions.

Today… I invite YOU to share yourself with the world. Reach out to someone in need… And ask, “How can I help?”… Even if you don’t know what you could do.
Today… Be in Service! You will be blessed at least tenfold!

Let The Source BE with YOU…Now!

On Passion…

“Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things. ”
-Denis Diderot

Our time on earth is borrowed. Life is God’s gift to us. More than the material possessions of this world, it is the things of Spirit…of the Soul that really matter!

What YOU are goes beyond the physical… Beyond the Xternal… Beyond that which you can see. Your Soul is the essence of who you are as a person. It is the light that shines from within that houses your love of life, attitudes…Your sense of outlook and well-being. Nourishing your soul… Living with passion… Takes commitment and discipline.

Today… I invite YOU to elevate your Soul!
You can lift your spirits today, as well as, the spirits of others with the little things you do. How about smiling… Laughing more… Singing out loud?

How about saying, “I love you” to someone every day… Beginning today!

Each time you lift a spirit, the Soul soars with the passion that it is! And… In so doing, your life becomes brighter from the light that shines within you!

Let The Source BE with YOU…Now!

“ Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now. ”
-Denis Waitley

082916While your body lives in the present, your mind may often be stuck in reruns of yesterday… While you are worry about the future. Sound familiar?

Peace of mind only exists in the present… It has no past… And knows no future.

Why think of love lost, when you can feel loved today? Why think of your failure, when you can experience success in this very moment. Simple pleasures of the moment are yours for the asking!

Today… I invite YOU to Live Life…Your Life… To its fullest, without cluttering your mind with past hurt, and future fear. Try some unadulterated freedom to enjoy not what was once upon a time… Nor what could or should be… But what is… In all IT’S Divine Glory!

“ Successful people are simply people who learn to solve their problems… they are not people without problems”
-Spirit God

I have found that it is in the process and face of challenges and adversity that things begin to change… And that those things change as a result of the change within us that take place.

Life is going to continue… Although at times we may feel defeated. The purpose of defeat… The purpose of failure… The purpose of falling down is so that we may rebound… So that we may get up and realize our New Beginning!

Today… In this moment… I invite YOU to commit to your excellence… Your magnificence… Recalling that it is in your challenges that you will succeed from within. For success is, indeed, an “inside job”, where we get to demonstrate our Authentic Power from within owning and Living our highest and best good!

On Authentic Self…

“There is an urge to express in all people, and this urge, operating through the channels of Creative Mind looses energy into action. Back of all this is the impulse of Spirit to express.” -Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind


Ask YourSelf… What and how AM I expressing and releasing to the universe to flow and BE?

We direct how Creative Mind experiences and expresses in our Life…Productively, Or, perhaps, at times, non-productively. The choice is always ours. We can choose to express our best… Or we can choose to experience and express our not so best.

Today… I invite YOU to BE in tune with Creative Mind flowing within you… As you …through you!
BE in tune with the Divine plan for your life.
Gratefully…fully intend and claim all the great news and miracles you are going to receive in every area of your life today!

Say, “YES” to Creative Mind today… Loosing your Authentic Power God to act on your behalf… And provide all that you desire!

“ The more you learn what to do with yourself and the more you do for others, the more you will learn to enjoy the abundant life. ”
-William Boetckeron

We are not isolated and separate from one another. Rather… We are connected, and even more interconnected with each other.

It is that realization of our connectedness that serves us! That enables us to thrive! That enables us to enjoy an abundant life, while assisting others in thriving to their highest and best good!

Today… I invite YOU to explore your connectedness with others.… To become aware of the inner, as well as, the external world that you share.

That Exploration will fill you with more purpose, more connection, more joy… And more love! Of this, I am certain!

Usually…if you are out of alignment with Source Universe, you are likely to experience and express challenge, struggle…perhaps, pain.

Today…I invite YOU to clear out whatever is blocking your Spiritual energy. When you do this… Source Universe will pour into You…and bring You…whatever the time in Your Life…wonderful health, relationships…And happiness that you need… that you want!

“ Waiting is a trap. There will always be reasons to wait. The truth is, there are only two things in life, reasons and results, and reasons simply don’t count. ”
-Dr. Robert Anthony
Procrastination… We all practice is it in various areas of our lives. After all… Why not avoid doing a task which needs to be accomplished when more pleasurable things are available to us. Or so we think.
Ernest Holmes discusses that it is our spiritual power… That Authentic Power within each one of us that provides us the inspiration and motivation to stop delaying… To stop procrastinating claiming the goodness that is ours.
Divine Right Choice…Divine Right Action enables us to be prospered… To experience and express joy, happiness and bliss.Today… I invite YOU to stop postponing the Fullness of God that you are One with!

081716On Values…

“ Values provide perspective in the best of times and worst. ”
-Charles A Garfield

I recall the famous Charles Dickens’ novel, A Tale of Two Cities. The novel opens with, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, …”

And so is IT with respect to LIFE As we know IT…As we experience and express IT in each moment.

Metaphysical wisdom teaches us that it is the “good, as well as, the bad” that serves to teach and empower us. All is of the Divine… For Source, God is all there is… Infinite and unlimited in all ways and at all times!
Dr. Ernest Holmes teaches that is it essential that we release all thoughts… As well as situations, circumstances, events, and relationships that keep us stuck… That keep us cluttered.

So… Is it necessary to rid ourselves of everything to become spiritually unencumbered? Not necessarily! Four, some of that “bad”, Or “ugly” stuff does serve us for variety of reasons. Some of the baggage that we’ve been dragging around… Or, Perhaps, wheeling around in the proverbial rolling suitcase, does, indeed, serve us.

It requires all of it… We hold onto… And what and how we release… To reflect our consciousness.

It reveals… What we value… But we feel we must have in order to be happy… What we fear most!

Today… I invite YOU to consider and reflect that all your times and experiences… All your expressions… The “good”, as well as, the “bad” are valuable.

Today… I invite you to bless It all… For it is all of us that allows us to move forward with grace and ease.… So long as we choose to!

“ Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. ”

Have you been living in the present… Or somewhere else?

So what does it mean to live fully in the present moment?
It means that your awareness is completely centered on the here and now.
It means that you are not worrying about the future…or thinking about the past.
When you live in the present moment, you are living where life is happening…Now!

When it comes right down to it… It is your mind that is the only thing keeping you from living in the present!

Remember… Tomorrow is only a concept. Tomorrow is always waiting to come around the corner, but light has not been shed around the shadows of that corner… For time is always Now!

Today… I invite YOU to witness your thoughts as though they are purely sound.
Do not judge your thoughts as good or bad. We are much more that our thoughts!
Just know that… Breathe in the life of this present moment… And enjoy your magnificence!

081516On Happiness…

“ The journey to happiness involves finding the courage to go down into ourselves and take responsibility for what’s there: all of it. ”
-Richard Rohr

I identify “Happiness” with whatever gets your heart and mind Excited!

More accurately… I define “Happiness”, as “that which makes your Tail Wag!”

It may seem some people are born with enjoyment for life programmed into their hardwiring… Whereas, for others finding happiness seems an elusive goal. But, like any programming, yours can be changed! Of this, I am certain!

Happiness isn’t so much something we strive for… But, a simultaneous and continuous natural result of pursuing our God-given Mission…Purpose…Process… Passion in life. It is following a natural lifestyle that allows us to function at its highest level possible!

Today…I invite YOU to focus on that activity, whatever it is, that does, indeed, “make your Tail Wag” …and start to focus on it. Structure your life to do more of that! There… Right within You…Lies your “Happiness”!

“So we, and we alone, control our destiny.”
Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

This is what I Know…

Somethings in my life are inevitable… Out of my control… A matter of fate. And sometimes that can be intimidating to me.

To be out of control, in the sense that you surrender to your destiny while making the wisest choices available, is A step toward finding peace… Peace of mind, and peace of heart.

The Essential key is to understand that peace of mind comes when we control what we can, and, at the same time, have that faith… In God… In the universe… That our destiny will be fulfilled in magnificent and mighty ways!

I also Know this…

Each one of us… Individually, as well as collectively together, has a purpose to why we are here!

Today I invite you to make wise choices based on LOVE to shape the destiny that is yours… And realize your Life’s Calling!

My heart spoke to me a bit louder than usual this morning! My heart confirmed to me that it was all right to continue my practice of “Being”…Even in this “do more” Society we are all sharing.

The Core of the matter is that it doesn’t really matter how efficient or productive you are. The more you do, the less You are. Peace… That “Being” within your heart space… Is about “Being”…not doing.

Peace…

It’s about feeling, really soaking in the present moment, touching another person’s life with love… And making some grand memories!

Today… I invite You to view each minute in this day as a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a difference… To touch a life… And be the best you can be.
