BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, March 27th, 2015 by Michael Tamura in YOU ARE THE ANSWER

“When you find yourself judging others harshly, remember that your upset is not about them. It’s about you not being able to forgive and love yourself because you are holding that judgment inside of you. If in the past you were humiliated for being “stupid,” then you might create judgments against stupidity in order to cover your invalidation and loss of love for having been “stupid” yourself. You end up blaming “stupid” for your pain. Those who fit that same judgment of “stupid’ threaten to reopen you to the pain within YOU, so you chase them away by judging THEM. Let it be all right that someone once judged you, for it’s really that person’s problem to solve not yours. Those who create judgments must live with them and endure their consequences, not those who are the target of judgment.”

Michael J. Tamura, in “You Are the Answer”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, March 26th, 2015 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in YOU’LL SEE IT WHEN YOU BELIEVE IT

Compiler’s Note: Dear email subscriber, for many years now Feedblitz has been automatically delivering these daily messages for free in exchange for the placement of ads at the bottom of the daily email. This week they apparently instituted a new policy for “free” services, namely that subscribers are forced to see an ad at the top of the page before the content. Unless I agree to pay  $120/year, these obtrusive ads will likely continue. Since Pondercentral.com earns no revenue at all, I cannot justify that annual expense so unfortunately those ads are a trade-off to keep the service going. Thanks for your patience with this.

“Whatever you tend to think about is what you will focus on, and create more of. For example, if you have some debts and some principal, and your entire focus is on what you have, then you will expand your principal. If your principal is only five hundred dollars and your debts are five thousand, and you focus on the money that you have, you will begin to do something with it. Whatever you do with it in a positive way will help it to expand.

Conversely, if you focus all of your thoughts on you indebtedness, always reminding yourself how poor you are, and making that the locus of your emotional life, that is precisely what you will expand. This is very clear when it comes to minor illnesses. If you focus on your cold, always talking about it, always complaining to everyone you meet about how lousy you feel, you will expand what you focus on. That is, your energy will flow to the cold that you are so proud of. But if you focus on all of you that is not sick, and tell others how great you feel, you will expand wellness.”

Dr. Wayne Dyer, in “You’ll See it When you Believe It”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 by Stuart Wilde in AFFIRMATIONS

“Consistency means deciding what you want and holding on to your intention until your dream is met. You must be committed to your goal even though it seems a long way off. Imagine for a moment that you want to be an architect, but you do not have enough money to pay for your college tuition. Focus! You would support your intention greatly by buying books and visiting great architectural buildings and studying on your own in the library. You would be moving toward your goal even if you do not have the money at this time to materialize your dream. By concentrating on what is in front of you, rather than the total picture, you eventually get what you want.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, March 24th, 2015 by Eugenia Oganova in MISSION ALPHA

“The belief in aging is a psychological ‘clock’ that translates into biology for a subscriber to that belief. The average human body clock programs cells to divide, diminish and die, therefore creating a limited lifespan. The human clock is based in chronology, in linear time. Lately, due to dimensional energies being more coherent and to increased awareness, time feels faster to us. From the Soul level, this brings greater emotional experience in every moment, but from an imbalanced human perspective it tends to speed up the clock.

In other words, lately it might feel like we are running out of time. This is one of the reasons for such an expansion of the cosmetic surgery industry and all sorts of ways of making the body look younger. On the social scale, there is urgency (and even a low-level panic) about getting old, and a resolve to do whatever is possible to stop it. But since the idea of the clock is based in victim consciousness, the clock cannot be stopped. It can only be discarded. The biology of aging is created by a belief, which is a conceptual level program.

A perfect blueprint of health contains another program, the one for cellular regeneration. But it is only accessible when social, genetic, and karmic patterns are not overriding our curiosity for life. Curiosity fuels cellular regeneration. The more curious we are, the more passion we have, the more desire to live, the more vitality and health, which in turn makes us younger.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, March 23rd, 2015 by Marlo Morgan in MUTANT MESSAGE DOWN UNDER

“In order to know your home, the earth, all its levels of life, and your relationship to everything seen and unseen, you must lead. It is fine to walk for a while as the last one in any group, and it is acceptable to spend some time mingling in the middle, but ultimately everyone must at some time lead. You have no way of understanding leadership roles until you assume that responsibility. Everyone must experience all of these roles at some time, without exception, sooner or later, if not in this lifetime, sometime! The only way to pass any test is to take the test. All tests on every level are always repeated one way or another until you pass.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, March 20th, by Sanaya Roman in LIVING WITH JOY

“Be open to surprises and new things. Keep your heart open. Some of you experience a feeling of vulnerability or fear when you think of bringing new people or new things into your lives. What you call tension or anxiety before an event can be viewed instead as focusing your energy to prepare you for something new. It is a change in your vibration to prepare you for something that is finer and higher in your life. You may feel that you must first conquer fear and anxiety before you step out and accomplish something. But everyone has that inner feeling of tension to some degree before attempting new things; it is a period of gathering energy to make the shift into a higher vibration.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, March 19th, 2015 by John St. Augustine in LIVING AN UNCOMMON LIFE

“The average life expectancy in America is just about 77 years, give or take a few. That’s just over 28,000 days to figure out why you are here, what you are going to do about it, and how you want to live. And just so we are clear, the ground rule is this: life is not fair in any way, shape or form. You could be here one day and gone the next without any warning. You could do all the “right” things, like exercising, eating right, getting enough sleep, not smoking, and limiting your alcohol intake, and then get struck by lightning, run over by a bus, gored by a bull, or slip in the shower. Life begins in an instance and often ends the same way.

Our arrogance and ego keep us from staying in the moment. We look at the obituary page and cannot imagine our picture there – death is something that happens to someone else, no matter how many funerals we attend. We cannot imagine our own demise, which in turn keeps us from experiencing life to the fullest. Denial is not just a river – it’s a state as well – one that most of us live in when it comes to understanding that we come in on time and leave on time, and that the in-between time is always the right time to make time for the people, places, and events that are really important.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, March 18th, 2015 by Stuart Wilde in THE QUICKENING

“The power needed to accelerate you past your current state is great indeed and the more stripped of emotion you are, the less opinions you hold, the less rigidity you create, then the more your ability to break out of the gravitational grip of the “collective” consciousness is enhanced by the lightness of your load. You can’t be different and hold the same feelings as the mass of people.

To establish that difference you need to create an emotional barrier between yourself and the world. It is a psychic demarcation zone through which no emotion will pass. It becomes the buffer between you and life’s circumstances. This buffer is developed in several ways. First, you pull away from the desires and attachments that you have about your own life. You voice no opinion. You just accept reality as you find it, internalize it and own it even if you do not like it. This does not mean you cannot change things if you wish, it just means that the way things are, is the way they are, and you have to be able to accept that.

Any negative yearning that you have about your life serves only as an affirmation of weakness and locks you in. Nowadays, people insist that everything be perfect, safe, comfortable and convenient and so often life is not any of these. The Warrior-Sage accepts discomfort and pain and rides on, regardless. His life is not regulated by having to have this or that. He does not demand that conditions be perfect, or even to his/her liking. He learns to be stay centered whatever the circumstances. By not reacting to your surroundings and by ignoring the emotional gyrations of others, you empower yourself from within.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, March 17th, 2015 by Eckhart Tolle in A NEW EARTH

“When you make the present moment, instead of past and future, the focal point of your life, your ability to enjoy what you do – and with it the quality of your life – increases dramatically. Joy is the dynamic aspect of Being. When the creative power of the universe becomes conscious of itself, it manifests as joy. You don’t have to wait for something “meaningful” to come into your life so that you can finally enjoy what you do. There is more meaning in joy than you will ever need. The “waiting to start living” syndrome is one of the most common delusions of the unconscious state.

Expansion and positive change on the outer level is much more like to come into your life if you can enjoy what you are doing already, instead of waiting for some change so that you can start enjoying what you do. Don’t ask your mind for permission to enjoy what you do. All you will get is plenty of reasons why you can’t enjoy it. “Not now,” the mind will say. “Can’t you see I’m busy? There’s no time. Maybe tomorrow you can start enjoying…”

That tomorrow will never come unless you being enjoying what you are doing now.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, March 16th, 2015 by Lynn Grabhorn in EXCUSE ME, YOUR LIFE IS WAITING

“The universe doesn’t give a crapshoot whether we want something or don’t want something; it works strictly off the physics principle we call the Law of Attraction. We send the magnetic feelings out, the universe obediently delivers. It doesn’t react to our pleas; it only responds to our vibrations which come purely from how we’re feeling.

Does it matter what caused the feelings in the first place? No. They could come from a thought, from an outside event, or just from a general mood. But regardless of how they are initiated, the events that make up our lives come solely from our moment-to-moment, day-to-day, year-to-year outflow of feelings.”

“Life gives us every opportunity to learn and grow. With each recurrence, we learn to refine how we respond to that type of person, thing, situation, idea or energy. We get to practice as much as we need. The sooner we get it, the less we have to do it. And every invalidation, failure and hurt is an opportunity for learning, healing and growth. Every time we are invalidated, we may feel pain, sadness, anger, and hopelessness. We can choose to sit in our depression, lash out in resistance and anger at others, or forgive and discover our freedom and our divinity.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, March 12th, 2015 by Eliza Mada Dalian in IN SEARCH OF THE MIRACULOUS

“Observation with self-awareness is like a torch that illuminates the unconscious darkness both inside and outside and transforms it into conscious light. To see the world with self-awareness means to stand apart from whatever you are observing instead of being identified with it. Observation with self-awareness helps you feel safe enough to venture into the darkness of the unconscious (personal, collective, and cosmic) and disidentify from it.

If you observe everything in the outside world and at the same time remain aware of yourself as the observer, you can never be lost in any situation. You will know that you are simply a detached observer of what is happening. With self-aware observation, you simply look at everything that comes to pass without judging, blaming, or identifying with anything. The self-aware observer has no bias towards what is “good” or “bad,” “right” or “wrong” – she simply observes all judgments as passing aspects of thought. Cultivating the ability to observe with self-awareness takes time and effort, but if you persevere in looking at everything with self-awareness, your consciousness of the world and yourself will gradually increase.”

“The person who is asleep always thinks he’ll feel better if somebody else changes. You’re suffering because you are asleep, but you’re thinking, “How wonderful life would be if somebody else would change; how wonderful life would be if my neighbor changed, my wife changed, my boss changed.”

We always want someone else to change so that we will feel good. But has it ever struck you that even if your wife changes or your husband changes, what does that do to you? You’re just as vulnerable as before; you’re just as idiotic as before; you’re just as asleep as before. YOU are the one who needs to change, who needs to take medicine. You keep insisting, “I feel good because the world is right.” WRONG! The world is right because I feel good. That’s what all the mystics are saying.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, March 10th, 2015 by Terry Cole-Whittaker in LIVE YOUR BLISS

“Keep your most important desires secret. This prevents unwanted comments from others who may be rivalrous, or afraid of losing control over you, or limited in their knowledge of what is possible. Our minds are fragile in the sense that a discouraging word can cause us to give up and quit instead of pursuing our life’s plan and purpose. When we tell envious people what we are planning to do, it gives them a chance to cultivate doubt in our minds. No one needs this. Keeping our heartfelt desires sacred and secret until they manifest allows a necessary buildup of divine power.

Telling others what we intend to do, and bragging about it to impress them, dissipates the power, just as holes in a garden hose reduce the water available at the nozzle. Thinking about what we desire, and imagining it attained, increases our desire, which increases our motivation to act and ends our procrastination.”

“Real service is given without any expectation of reward or acknowledgement. In this attitude we can never be disappointed and we will always feel fulfilled. If we feel irritated because we do not receive a “thank you” from someone for a kind act, then we did not do it out of a desire to give love; we did it to receive something, and this is not service; it is business. When we do not receive acknowledgement for a gift or an act, we should be grateful, for this means we did it for God. God sees all that we do, even if no one else does, and God will reward us more faithfully than anyone in the world ever could.”
