BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, December 6th, 2019 by Arnold Patent in YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL

“Debts exist only because the concept is given general acceptance, and is used extensively in our society. Car loans, home mortgages and charge accounts are considered valuable vehicles for circulating money in our economy. Yet there are people who do not believe in debts, and they do not have any. Debt is not a requirement for living. Every day there are people who buy cars and houses for cash and enjoy doing it.

Debts are not an inherent part of the real Universe. If we are troubled by debts, it is possible for us to eliminate them from our lives. The people who have done this are essentially no different from you and me. They just have different thoughts about money. Thoughts that you and I can have also.

Debts are not a general condition. They are a specific condition. No matter how much difficulty we are having with cash flow, we do pay some of our bills. We do manage handling money to some extent, and whatever that extent is, it is not an accident…We have the capacity at any time to attract sufficient money into our lives to pay any debt that we really want to pay.”

Arnold Patent, in “You Can Have It All”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, December 5th, 2019 by Don Miguel Ruiz in THE VOICE OF KNOWLEDGE

“The word is your power because you use the word for the creation of your virtual world. You use the word to create the main character of your story. Every self-opinion, every belief, is made by words: “I am smart, I am stupid, I am beautiful, I am ugly.” This is powerful. But your word is even more powerful because it represents you when you interact with other dreamers. Every time you speak, your thought becomes sound, your thought becomes the word, and now it can go into other peoples’ minds. If their minds are fertile for that kind of seed, they eat it, and now that thought lives inside of them too.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, December 4th, 2019 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in PULLING YOUR OWN STRINGS

“It is well known that not dwelling on the symptoms of many physical maladies will actually diminish the symptoms — as long as you don’t do anything else to aggravate them. Meditation is increasingly used, along with judicious exercise, instead of drugs to break the pain-tension-more-pain-more-tension cycles of chronic backaches. And consider the common cold. By thinking about a cold, talking about it, “indulging it.” you will very likely reinforce the cold symptoms, which your own body will naturally suppress if it has more pressing business…

This kind of anti-thinking strategy, when the thinking is self-defeating, can be very helpful in eliminating many infirmities. While it is obviously not a substitute for adequate medical care, when the cause of the problem is purely in the head, or when the head can aggravate the symptoms of a physical problem out of all proportion to its real seriousness, then learning to relax, to stop thinking and just be, can be a very powerful antidote to physical maladies.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019 by David Simon in THE TEN COMMITMENTS

“Playwright, poet and first president of the Czech Republic Vaclav Havel once said, “Keep the company of those who seek the truth, and run from those who have found it.” If you keep this in mind as you search for meaning and purpose in life, you will have a better chance of discovering truth while experiencing more joy and freedom in the process. Throughout the history of humanity, philosophers, sages and mystics in pursuit of truth have come to the same conclusion as Einstein, who maintained, “The search for truth is more precious than its possession.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, December 2nd, 2019 by Pete Koerner in THE BELIEF FORMULA

“It is a fact that doing something nice, kind, generous, or loving, makes you feel better, not worse. This is proven to reduce stress, thereby lowering the risk of getting any illness. The neurotransmitters and hormones released while experiencing love (in any of its forms) are better, in every possible way, than the drugs people take recreationally in order to induce euphoric states. So basically, it’s like this: If you deal with others from a place of love, you will be happy, healthy, feeling as good as you possibly could emotionally, and psychologically; and you will actually have a healing affect on people by simply being near them.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, November 29th, 2019 by Neale Donald Walsh in CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD, BOOK 2

“I tell you this: Your feelings will never get you into”trouble,” because you feelings are your truth. If you want to live a life where you never follow your feelings, but where every feeling is filtered through the machinery of your Mind, go right ahead. Make your decisions based on your Mind’s analysis of the situation. But don’t look for joy in such machinations, nor for celebration of Who You Truly Are.

Remember this: True celebration is mindless.

If you listen to your soul you will know what is “best” for you, because what is best for you is what is true for you. When you act only out of what is true for you, you speed your way down the path. When you create an experience based on your “now truth” rather than react to an experience based on a “past truth,” you produce a “‘new you.”

God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsh, in Conversations with God, Book 2

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, November 28th, 2019 by Sanaya Roman in SPIRITUAL GROWTH

“Choose what information and situations you agree with and want as your truth. What you accept as your truth will create your reality. If you read something you don’t like or don’t agree with, don’t accept it; it isn’t true for you. It may be true for others, but you don’t have to make it part of your reality. Instead of accepting others’ opinions of reality, say “I choose my reality. Do I choose the reality I am hearing or reading about? Does it empower me, serve in practical ways to make my life better? Will believing this truth bring me joy, aliveness, and more love?”

You do not have to accept others’ views of reality that are based on fear and scarcity; you do not need to prepare for a fearful future. Even if there is an economic crisis or earth upheaval somewhere, these need not affect you. You can create your own personal economy of abundance by believing in abundance and choosing this as your reality.”

Sanaya Roman, in “Spiritual Growth”

“Happiness is our natural state. Happiness is the natural state of little children, to whom the kingdom belongs until they have been polluted and contaminated by the stupidity of society and culture. To acquire happiness you don’t have to do anything, because happiness cannot be acquired. Does anybody know why? Because we have it already. How can you acquire what you already have?

Then why don’t you experience it? Because you’ve got to drop something. You’ve got to drop illusions. You don’t have to add anything to be happy; you’ve got to drop something. Life is easy, life is delightful. It’s only hard on your illusions, your ambitions, your greed, your cravings. Do you know where these things come from? From having identified with all kinds of labels.”

“If you are wearing a mask, you created it; and you did this for a reason. A mask, just as any other creation, is made of energy. You once made a decision, or a movement, in the direction of this new identity. You had to put energy into acquiring the new mask. You had to attend medical school, in other words, to put on the mask of a doctor. You must get married and devote a certain amount of your energy to maintain the mask of a wife. Different masks have different weights; the denser, or heavier, the mask, the more energy it requires maintaining. You must choose how much energy you are willing to invest in any particular mask, or you will set up an imbalance that will ultimately result in stress and dis-ease as your body naturally goes about restoring balance.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, November 25th, 2019 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in A PROMISE IS A PROMISE

“Often there is a tendency to resort to anger or physical manipulation to get a point across. We have all raised our voices and yelled at someone who was not doing our bidding the way we wanted it done. Some will speak of hating those who disagree with them or break the rules. And there are some who strike out with fists or slap those who are smaller and defenseless. Remove all traces of this habit of ego from your life by consulting your sacred self when those moments occur.

You can make much more of an impact by being gracious and being unthreatening yourself, in the face of discord…If you are filled with rage, that is what will come out when you are pressured or squeezed in some way.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, November 22nd, 2019 by Cherie Carter-Scott, Ph.D. in IF LIFE IS A GAME THESE ARE THE RULES

“How can we move from resistance to openness? By first recognizing the feeling of resistance. Resistance usually manifests itself physically in a clenched jaw, a tightness in the chest, or sighing. Mentally, it shows up in thoughts like, “Why do I have to deal with this issue? I don’t want this, I don’t need it, I don’t like it!” Once you discover where in your mind or body resistance anchors itself, you can more easily identify it in the future.

The next step is to remind yourself that you have a choice. You can either continue with this resistance and feel badly or you can learn whatever the lesson is there to teach you. Presenting yourself with a choice allows you to see that you have control over your resistance and how you choose to deal with life’s challenges.

The last step is to ask yourself, “Am I willing to give up the resistance and learn whatever lesson is presenting itself?” Remember, if you want to truly live from your authentic self, you must be open to learning all the lessons you are given so that you may grow into the person you want to become. What lessons are you resisting?”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, November 21st, 2019 by John Van Auken in BORN AGAIN AND AGAIN

“The deeper self is so natural that we often miss it and build an elaborate image of some angel-like figure to which we can’t completely relate. The deeper self sees with the same eyes, hears with the same ears and lives in the same body. It is you, and more than just you as you normally think of yourself. But, it is you. It’s the better you.

We are spirits in a body for a time. Our purpose for being is companionship with the Creator of the entire universe. The events we experience in our lives today are the result of our soul’s thoughts, actions and choices in the past. The sorrows, disappointments, limitations and pain we experience are opportunities to make new and wiser decisions that will change all of our tomorrows. Seek and you shall find, ask and it will be shown to you, knock and the door shall be opened for you. It is your birthright, your purpose and your destiny to fulfill.”

“Do you ever feel like the Universe is trying to get your attention? Have you ever had a series of events steering you towards something?…We sometimes forget to listen to that quiet voice within, or that loud knock on the door. Look for the signs – they are all around us in different forms. However, we must first be willing and open to receiving the messages they hold. When you do, you will be amazed with the end result. The Universe is always helping us in one way or another. The message, or the synchronicity, may find you in different circumstances.”

“We each live within a comfort zone of beliefs and knowledge we have been given thus far by people in our lives. If you’re not creating a life you love with the recipe you’ve been given, you may need ingredients no one told you about yet. Did you think you’ve already learned it all? Those ingredients exist; but you have to look outside that very small comfort zone of “What I Know” in order to find them. The answers to your questions, and the solutions to your problems, are not inside your comfort zone.”

“Anytime you’re practicing renunciation, you’re deluded. How about that? You’re deluded. What are you renouncing? Anytime you renounce something, you are tied forever to the thing you renounce…As long as you’re fighting it, you are giving it power. You give it as much power as you are using to fight it.

So you must “receive” your demons, because when you fight them, you empower them. Has nobody ever told you this? When you renounce something you’re tied to it. The only way out of this is to see through it. Don’t renounce it, see through it.”
