BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, November 26th, 2014 by Neale Donald Walsch in FRIENDSHIP WITH GOD

“You are not – first and foremost I want to tell you that you are not – your past. You are not your yesterdays. You are not what you did yesterday, what you said yesterday, what you thought yesterday. A lot of people are going to want to think that you are your yesterdays. In fact, some others are going to insist that you be. They will do this because they have a big investment in your continuing to show up that way. For one thing, they can then be “right” about you. For another, they can then “depend on you.” 

What you are invited to do is live in the moment. This allows you to separate your Self from your former ideas about you – a remarkable percentage of which are foundationed in OTHER people’s ideas about YOU.”

God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, “Friendship with God”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 by Danielle Rama Hoffman in THE COUNCIL OF LIGHT

“Even if you experience a lack of health in your perception you can look for the well-being that exists in that moment. This is a skill you develop. Let’s say you have a pain in your body. What would happen in the old paradigm is that as a part of your body hurts, you forget that the other 99.9 percent of your body doesn’t hurt. It becomes the loudest thing in your perception. But if you know that you’re safe and you train your body and your being to look for the 99.9 percent that is expressing well-being in that moment, you’re able to see that what exists is actually wellness.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, November 24th, 2014 by Michael Tamura in YOU ARE THE ANSWER

“When you get stuck, always remind yourself that what you’re stuck on is “only a picture.” If you’re beating yourself up because you failed in something, those feelings of grief, anger and frustration as well as the thoughts that go with them are all contained in little pictures in your associative mind.

The intensity of those emotions and thoughts that you experience is the amount of your power you put into them. You must decide to step back from the pictures and realize that, as totally real and unchangeable as they may seem to you now, they are nothing more than pictures.

It is comparable to the way a slide projector magnifies the slides to become larger than life on the screen. What you see on that screen may have happened before but it isn’t happening NOW. It would be silly to get all worked up and try to do something about a slide show of what happened when you were three years old, wouldn’t it? Yet that’s what most people do, day in and day out.”

PONDER on THIS for Friday, November 21st, 2014 by Linda Deir in GUIDED

“Your guides are best qualified to walk you through your shift. They have no agenda. They are your biggest fans and your real life coaches…It’s important to know you do still have someone you can trust and depend on, your guides. The truth and love are both painstakingly real.You must be 100 percent present to fully experience them – no distractions, no manipulations or strategies to outsmart them, no pretending, no cheating. You must be fearless; you must be you, pure and simple.

Not too many people are willing to do this because, to them, it feels too risky. Only if you have a relationship with those who walk with you, your guides, your life coaches, as they navigate you through this life will you have the checks and balances to keep you on course. But you have to be open to this relationship. No one here knows you better than your guides.”

Linda Deir, in “Guided”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, November 20th, 2014 by Mark Nepo in THE BOOK OF AWAKENING

“We do ourselves a great disservice by judging where we are in comparison to some final destination. This is one of the pains of aspiring to become something: the stage of development we are in is always seen against the imagined landscape of what we are striving for. So where we are – though closer all the time – is never quite enough.

The simple rose, at each moment of its slow blossoming, is as open as it can be. The same is true of our lives. In each stage of our unfolding, we are as stretched as possible. For the human heart is quite slow to blossom, and is only seen as lacking when compared to the imagined lover or father or mother we’d like to become.

It helps to see ourselves as flowers. If a flower were to push itself open faster, which it can’t, it would tear. Yet we can and often do push ourselves. Often we tear in places no one can see. When we push ourselves to unfold faster or more deeply that is natural, we thwart ourselves. For nature takes time, and most of our problems of will stem from impatience.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in YOUR SACRED SELF

“When people know our personal histories they exert a certain amount of control over us. They expect us to be something that we have always been, or that we have been taught to be. If we don’t live up to their expectations they become disillusioned about us. Then we take on the guilt of disappointing those who have been such loyal sponsors of our lives.

“However, there is a simple alternative that can be put into practice in a moment of satori, or instant awakening. You can drop your personal history right now. Just drop it. To put it quite simply, if you don’t have a story, you don’t have to fit it.

“Of all the enlightened beings I have met and have read about, the one similar quality they seem to possess is that they are not in any way tied to their past. They are free because they don’t rely on the way things used to be to define their lives today.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, November 18th, 2014 by Catherine Ponder in OPEN YOUR MIND TO PROSPERITY

“You must get rid of what you do not want, to make way for what you do want. Substance (gold dust, mind power) does not flow easily into a cluttered, crowded situation. Substance does not flow easily into a cluttered, crowded mind. Substance does not flow easily into a cluttered, crowded, hate-filled emotional state. You must begin to form a vacuum, in both outer and inner ways. Magnetic influences are transmitted perfectly through a vacuum. By forming a vacuum, you become magnetic to your good! I have seen it happen hundreds of times.

Get rid of what you do not want in an outer way. Clean up, clean out the closets, desk drawers, house, car, office. Forming a vacuum in an outer way makes a believer out of your subconscious mind, which then goes to work in inner ways to manifest greater prosperity for you. There has to be a release of the old to make way for the new. You can unblock your good by forming a vacuum.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, November 17th, 2014 by Eckhart Tolle in THE POWER OF NOW

“Compassion is the awareness of a deep bond between yourself and all creatures. But there are two sides to compassion, two sides to this bond. On the one hand, since you are still here as a physical body, you share the vulnerability and mortality of your physical form with every other human and with every living being.

Next time you say, “I have nothing in common with this person,” remember that you have a great deal in common: A few years from now – two years or seventy years, it doesn’t make much difference – both of you will have becoming rotting corpses, then piles of dust, then nothing at all. This is a sobering and humbling realization that leaves little room for pride.

Is this a negative thought? No, it is a fact. Why close your eyes to it? In that sense, there is total equality between you and every other creature.”

Best of PONDER on THIS for Friday, November 14th, 2014 by Sanaya Roman in SPIRITUAL GROWTH

“Spiritual growth involves developing the ability to understand yourself and to act in higher and higher ways. Everything in your life is teaching you about yourself. Do not make yourself wrong if you have a lot of turbulence in your life; see it as an opportunity to grow and to know more about yourself.

Notice that you have already gained a level of mastery over your emotions, for there are certain situations that might have greatly upset you years ago that you now let pass quickly. Perhaps when someone slighted you in the past you felt bad about it for days. Now you simply shrug and decide it’s their problem, not yours. You will get to a point, if you aren’t there already, at which you can say, “People are the way they are, and I will not take their actions personally.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, November 13th, 2014 by Kathleen Martin in UNDERSTANDING UNIVERSAL LAWS 101

“What can you do to change the frequency of something unwanted to something wanted, whether it’s health or anything you desire? The first step in the process is to become conscious of your thoughts and how you feel as a result of them. Your emotions and feelings are your guidance system. When you notice that you are feeling negative, stop and change your thought. Shift your attention off what is causing you to feel badly and consciously and deliberately choose to focus on what feels better. Remember, you are always “at choice” and can always choose to focus on something else. There are areas of your life that you have been practicing thoughts and feelings about that now have beliefs associated with them. The good news is, you can change that.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, November 12th, 2014 by Michael Tamura in YOU ARE THE ANSWER

“Author Gregg Levoy tells us in his book, “Callings,” that in the Afghani language, the verb “to cling” is the same as “to die.” Facing our death shifts our perspective on life, and consequently our relationship to it. It reveals to us all the lies that we are living, all that we are clinging to with a “death grip.” Most of us don’t want to die. Yet few of us ARE TRULY LIVING. We tend to be sleepwalkers, attached to illusions, people, beliefs and things that become substitutes for living. Choosing life involves a loosening of our death-grip on our attachments, a surrendering of the illusions we tend to snooze in.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, November 11th, 2014 by Walter E. Jacobson M.D. in FORGIVE TO WIN

“There are no good reasons not to forgive others because, regardless of how others have behaved, if we don’t forgive them, we’re only hurting ourselves. We’re only perpetuating our own suffering. We think we’re punishing others when we withhold forgiveness. We think we’re beating them up with guilt and shame. However, the ironic truth is that, because of the nature of projection, it is ourselves we’re attacking. It is ourselves we’re punishing. It is ourselves we’re keeping in an emotional prison.

The only way to put an end to this self-punishment is to stop punishing others with our harsh judgments and to forgive them instead. Consequently, every day we remind ourselves that we are determined to forgive others for our own good. Every day, we remind ourselves that we are determined to forgive others for our own self-esteem and success. Every day we remind ourselves that we are determined to forgive others because not to do so may be gratifying to our petty, selfish, frightened ego, but will forever keep us from the life we want.”

“When asking for help from your highest spiritual power, I think it is best not to demand immediate change. Our success in life is predicated on planning, but we do have alternative paths to choose from to reach certain goals. When seeking guidance, I suggest requesting help with just the next step in your life. When you do this, be prepared for unexpected possibilities. Have the faith and humility to open yourself up to a variety of paths toward solutions.”

Best of PONDER on THIS for Friday, November 7th, 2014 by Shakti Gawain in THE PATH OF TRANSFORMATION

We must remember that trying to solve the world’s problems through a primarily external focus is not very effective. The world is full of people attempting to find solutions to community and planetary problems with little success and much struggle, because they are not fully confronting deeper levels of the issues. As well-meaning as we may be, if we try to “fix” things outside ourselves, without healing the underlying causes of the problem in our own consciousness, we simply perpetuate the problem.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, November 6th, 2014 by Gary Spinell in IT WAS YOU ALL ALONG

“In all sports, contests, job interviews, and vying for promotions, there are perceived winners and losers. And in our society, winning is everything. Everyone has a choice in life to look at the outcome of a situation or event as success and failure, or learn what works and develop a new strategy. If we look at the world in the “either/or” terms of winning and losing, it leads us down one path. Either we win and others lose or the reverse is true, they win and we lose. This win-lose scenario creates a negative path that can lead to frustration, resentment, and anger. The negativity begins to dampen our self-esteem. Conversely, when we look at losses or problems as opportunities, as if one door is closing and another door opens, it creates a different world for us.

How many times in your life were you passed over for a job, only to have a better opportunity open up for you? Or a relationship that you wanted to work out didn’t, only to create the space for a new relationship to come into your life that far exceeded any expectations you had of the previous one? Many of us have experienced unfortunate events. Successful people do not view life in “either/or” terms. They examine what works and what does not work. They make adjustments and implement new tactics. Successful people don’t take it personally. There is no impact to their self-esteem when they make an unsuccessful attempt to obtain their goal.”
