Thoughts for the day October 7, 2015

The word for the day is truth


Your Daily Now Moment!

The 14th-century Persian poet Hafiz wrote,

How did the rose
ever open its heart
and give to this world
all its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light
against its being,
we all remain
too frightened.

Ask yourself, who encourages you in your life and how are you kind to yourself?

As you practice being kind to yourself today or perhaps for the whole week, try and set aside expectations and see what happens.

So, the truth is, there's not one path. The truth is, there's not only one right path. The truth is, all paths can be made to be the right path. The truth is, that every individual has a different path. And that different path that every individual is launching incrementally—and amending constantly—that true path is known by Source and is guided by Source if you will pay attention to the way you feel.

Thoughts for the day October 8, 2015

The word for the day is love

― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

... sharing this moment.

Here are three quotes and a thought of mine (remember back to Ajahn Chah's goblet) that I hope will bring you joy today:

"There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way."
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."
~ Dalai Lama

"As soon as we wish to be happier, we are no longer happy."
~ Walter Landor

"It is what it is, while it is."
~ Elisha Goldstein

Every thought that you think is vibrating at a very personal frequency . . . and by the powerful Law of Attraction (the essence of that which is like unto itself, is drawn), that thought is now attracting another thought that is its Vibrational Match. And now, those combined thoughts are vibrating at a frequency that is higher than the thought that came before; and they will now, by the Law of Attraction, attract another and another and another, until eventually the thoughts will be powerful enough to attract a "real life" situation or manifestation.

Thoughts for the day October 9, 2015

The words for the day are Hard Work

“I'm a greater believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it”
― Thomas Jefferson

“If you try and lose then it isn't your fault. But if you don't try and we lose, then it's all your fault.”
― Orson Scott Card, Ender's Game

If you believe that you must work hard in order to deserve the money that comes to you, then money cannot come to you unless you do work hard. Financial success, or any other kind of success, does not require hard work. It does require alignment of thought. You simply cannot offer negative thought about things that you desire and then make up for it with action or hard work. When you learn to direct your own thoughts, you will discover the true leverage of Energy alignment.

“If I told you I’ve worked hard to get where I’m at, I’d be lying, because I have no idea where I am right now.”
― Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not FOR SALE

Your Daily Now Moment!

In this space of awareness, recognize that you're alive.

What routines or habits have you fallen into that you'd like to step out of?

What's just one thing you can do today to make that happen.

Thoughts for the day October 12, 2015

The word for the day is soul.

Take your Inner Being everywhere you go. If you take your Inner Being to the party, it's going to be a good party! If you take your Inner Being, the food that you eat will be received perfectly by the cells of your body. Every word that comes out of your mouth will be beneficial to everyone who hears them with their ears—or with their vibration. Don't go anywhere without your Inner Being. That's what "Allowing" is. Always having your Inner Being present. And then, anything else that happens is always orchestrated perfectly by Law of Attraction.

Your Daily Now Moment!

The next time you drive or get on your mode of transportation, pay attention to how your body knows exactly what to do:

Your mind tells you to sit, turn the wheel, put the key in the ignition and your hands and feet know exactly what to do.

Sometimes automaticity is a good thing!

Today, observe when and where you are on auto-pilot.

If you notice that a particular auto-routine is unhealthy, you have stepped into a space of awareness, a choice point to make a change.

The power is within you.

Today, find something around you that has a pleasant smell.

This could be a candle, food, a rose, or maybe something that brings up a sense of nostalgia.

Breathe in, allowing the scent to filter through your body.

Breathe in again and truly take in this scent, priming your mind toward the good in life.

If you see other things that you are drawn to today, give yourself a gift and stop to smell the roses.

“What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.”

― Aristotle

“What Is Love? I have met in the streets a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, the water passed through his shoes and the stars through his soul”
― Victor Hugo

Thoughts for the day October 15, 2015

The word of the day is Diversity

“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.”
― Maya Angelou

“Somebody who only reads newspapers and at best books of contemporary authors looks to me like an extremely near-sighted person who scorns eyeglasses. He is completely dependent on the prejudices and fashions of his times, since he never gets to see or hear anything else.”
― Albert Einstein

“I know there is strengthin the differences between us. I know there is comfort, where we overlap.” 

― Ani DiFranco

“Strength lies in differences, not in similarities”
― Stephen R. Covey

“It is never too late to give up your prejudices”
― Henry David Thoreau

On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know.
...that you cannot hope to solve any problem using the
same energy that created the problem.

Whether it's the endless wars in the world or the
unending quarrels and fighting in your own home, the
problem is the same: conflicting energy. If you want
to change the outcome, change the energy.

The extraordinary aspect of this solution is that you
do not have to wait for the other party in order
to do it.

Love, Your Friend ...
Neale Donald Walsch

Thoughts for the day October 16, 2015

The word for today is Play

“Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.”
― Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

“A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men.”
― Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator

“This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”
― Alan W. Watts

“Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature.”
― Tom Robbins

“The second I decide something is done, it’s done. I just have to wait for all y’all to see it.”—Will Smith
Or in my case, I have to wait for myself to see it.

The minute I make an intention, it’s real, it’s a viable creation. But until I can feel it and actually “be it,” my intention stays on a vibrational plane that’s out of my sight.

Making intentions is never the problem. What we intend is already present. It’s just that you and me and everybody else is stubborn enough that we keep staring at its lack. Until we can catch up vibrationally, we are unable to see and enjoy our fabulous creations.

As I heard Esther Hicks once say, “We’ve already created enough joy and happiness for 20 or 30 lifetimes.”

I hope this is a comforting thought. That our only responsibility is to get ourselves tuned into the joyful vibration where blessings flow, to begin resonating to the vibrational catalog of fun, love and laughter. We literally have to distract ourselves from all thoughts and emotions that block the natural flow.

Most of us are really good at the first part of the equation. Making the intention. But the second part, the part where we get out of our own way and allow love and joy and the new Mercedes Benz into our sphere of awareness is often more problematic.

So for right now, forget about your intentions. Just focus on every brilliant, juicy, fun delicious thought you can think of. Be grateful for every little thing. That’s everything that even remotely resembles your intention and everything that doesn’t. When joy is the dominant emotion, you’ll be able to pull good things out of the air like magicians pull rabbits out of hats.
Thoughts from Pam Grout

Your Daily Now Moment!

The ancient Greek writer Aesop left us with these words:

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."

Be on the lookout for kindness today. You may find more of it in the world than you think is there.

Also, try bringing more intentionality to your own acts of kindness.

We may not always get it back, but in the long run this simple practice primes your mind for good and can be life changing.

Try it out today.
