Simplicity

“To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter;
to be thrilled by the stars at night;
to be elated over a bird’s nest or
a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”
~John Burroughs

Vibrating In God’s Flow

“Can you recall times when things have continually gone wrong? Or conversely, do you remember periods when everything turned out great? We may have attributed either of these times to “the breaks,” or to coincidence. But, by and large, either outcome is likely to have been influenced strongly by our attitudes, thoughts, feelings and perceptions.
And the good news is that we determine these – which means that ultimately we control our own destiny. Learning how to do so effectively is one of the fascinating challenges of life.”
~Ron Scott

Today’s Affirmation

I make a conscious decision to align myself with the vibration of Spirit which is unceasingly harmonious, loving, joy-filled and whole.

Today’s Meditation

And, as we allow our self to move into alignment with the Spirit of all Life, we do so, understanding that situations around us may be troubling, even chaotic. And yet, we always have access to the Eternal Power of God.
We allow this awareness to fill our mind and to bring us peace and a sense of serenity.
We trust – even when circumstances appear otherwise – that God is working constantly to support our movement toward a greater good.
Truly, God, we are blessed – and we are grateful.
Amen

Listen

“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.”
~Ram Das

Today’s Affirmation

When I listen quietly, I hear and feel the heartbeat of life.

Today’s Meditation

In this moment of sweet communion, all is peaceful.
With our hearts joined, we become still and we know that God is All.
God is the essence of all life, of all things.
God is love and love is the bridge between hearts.
Like a silent wave, the divine rhythm is always present deep within us.
As we turn our attention within, we leave the noise behind.
For a while, we stand together within the Light at the center of All.
From this place, we bless the world.
So It is.
Amen

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow. ~Chinese Proverb

Today’s Affirmation

I move beyond emotional reactions and respond with clarity and openness.

Today’s Meditation

Dear God,

Today I choose to respond to life with clarity and openness.
I am willing to move out of unconscious reactions.
My emotions arise to show me what beliefs I am holding that I need to release.
I observe and learn from my emotional reactions, then I let them go.
I live from a clearer space each day.
Thank You, God, for Your love, grace and light that support my soul’s movement.

Soul Illumination

“To find truth you must experience it in your soul. You can read hundreds of books, or study the religions of all time, and find that all of them have one common point, one common denominator: and this is love-which is another word for light or soul illumination. To realize this soul illumination you have to shut away the clamor of the lower mind, to become humble, very simple.”
~White Eagle
