9/30/10 Every morning take a glass full of gratitude and a spoon full of peace. Then every hour take a pill of patience, one cup of kindness, and one glass of humility. Arrive home every day to a dose of love. Before you rest your head on the pillow, take two caplets of clear conscience. May you find a blessing in every trial, and the right answer to every prayer. Ask, Believe, Receive!
9/29/10 Be honest, can you keep a secret? Whatever you are told in confidence, do not repeat. Whenever you are tempted to tell a secret, do not yield. Whomever you are talking about, do not gossip, and however you are prone to disagree, do not slander. A confidence kept gives others confidence in you. Respect the trust of another, and they will respect you. Gossip destroys good character.
9/28/10 We must embrace pain and use it as fuel for our time through suffering. Adversity is like the strongest wind in a storm, tearing away all things we don’t need, so that we can see ourselves as we really are. We always appreciate our life after suffering. Our difficulties give us strength inside. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Find the strength within you to hang on and ride with the tide to happiness!
9/27/10 Are you willing to change an old behavior? We all want to have our lives change, to have situations become better and easier, but we don’t want to have to change. We would prefer that they change. In order to have this happen, we must change on the inside~our way of thinking, speaking, and expressing ourselves. ONLY then will the outer changes occur.
God is the Grand Designer, and works in us and through us. At our spiritual birth our heavenly genetic link to Him will not be broken.
9/26/10 Did you know we share God’s DNA? Like stained glass, our different personalities reflect God’s Light in many colors and patterns. Your uniqueness is a scientific fact; there never has been, and never will be anyone exactly like you! Figure out what you love to do~what God gave you a heart to do~and do it! Meaning and purpose are more important than material stresses!
My son lives in New Mexico and wrote this meditation. Blessings flow when we recognize the seed of God who speaks through us.
9/25/10 They say that with age comes wisdom, but wisdom comes only to those willing to receive it. Life is a passage; it is the only one we get. Like a rainstorm, it thrashes and pours all over the land. Afterward, there is peace and rejuvenation. Some people live their lives in the rainstorm, but for others the clouds clear, and the flowers begin to bud. RJB
Fear always leads to more fear. Have faith. Ralph Waldo Emerson says "Do the thing you fear & the death of fear is certain."
9/24/10 We have met the enemy and he is us. POGO… Fear has derailed more dreams than we can ever know. We do have to learn to recognize the physical manifestations of fear and acknowledge them. Transform fear into creative energy~from stage fright into applause! Our True self can outsmart the enemy within. Leave your comfort zone and rid yourself of fear.
Less is more, and God is always in the details! True happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in the details of life.
9/23/10 There is no detail so small, no thought however fleeting, no word unspoken, no deed mindlessly performed, that doesn’t send its vibration into the unseen, reaching no end and returning more of the same. As your cumulative manifestations draw your attention to the stunning and absolute power you have over your destiny, you’ll come to see that there’s no such thing as a small detail. You have the keys to the Kingdom….
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile is the source of your joy. Sow the seeds of joy, and you will sprout happiness all your days.
9/22/10 When you are in a good mood, you shine like the sun. But if we find ourselves in the presence of a person carrying a dark cloud, they can block our positive way of seeing the world. Clouds pass, while the sun and stars continue to shine. Like a lighthouse, you can shine through any darkness, offering Light to help others find their way back. Send them a silent prayer or a smileJ, lending them your energy and joy for living.
9/21/10 Gracefulness has been defined to be the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul. Grace is what God gives us what we don’t deserve and mercy is when God doesn’t give us what we deserve. Grace is available to us 24/7, but we have to ask for it with a grateful heart. Because we are born spiritually blind, it takes an act of God’s grace for your eyes to be opened. Faith is the sight of the inward eye. Was blind, now I see.
