Best of PONDER on THIS for Friday, October 31st, 2014 by Don Miguel Ruiz in THE FOUR AGREEMENTS COMPANION BOOK

“Our power of creation is the word. The word is the most powerful tool that humans possess. It is the tool of magic. The word creates the light, and because the light is the messenger of Life, the word IS Life or God. The Gospel of John in the Bible expresses the power of the word quite clearly: “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word is God.” Regardless of the language we speak, our INTENT manifests through the word. Through the word we manifest everything; we express our will, our intent, our love, and our faith, which are all the same thing.”

Don Miguel Ruiz, in “The Four Agreements Companion Book”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, October 30th, 2014 by Richard A. Singer in YOUR DAILY WALK WITH THE GREAT MINDS

“Celebrated souls throughout the history of humankind have erred countless times; this will continue to occur infinitely. Without error, the Universe never gets to divulge the entire picture. Error is not failure or the end of a journey, it is merely a sign that guides us on our path to success and lets us know we are getting closer to our desired goal. Error is not meant to stop you or slow you down; its function is to motivate you to continue because you are closer now than ever before. From every error something is learned and growth silently takes place in the evolution of your soul and the universal spirit.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 by Gary Zukav in THE SEAT OF THE SOUL

“Each question that a person asks, such as, “Why does news of this business meeting affect me this way?”, “Why do I feel disturbed?”, and “Does my experience support my suspicion?”, invokes guidance. Every time you ask for guidance, you receive it. Every time you ask yourself, “What is my motivation?”, you ask the Universe, “Help me to see,” and help comes.

You may not always be capable of hearing the answers to your questions when you ask them, and the answers may not always come in the ways that you expect, but they always come. Sometimes an answer occurs in the form of a feeling – a yes feeling or a no feeling – sometimes in the form of a memory, or a thought that, at the time, seems random, sometimes in a dream and sometimes in the form of a realization that is prompted by an experience that will occur the next day.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, October 28th, 2014 by Gary Spinell in BEYOND INTENT

“Our experiences “mirror” our beliefs, thoughts, and actions. Our world, through our experiences, reflects back to us the energy that we have projected via our beliefs, thoughts, and actions. The people we encounter whose actions push our buttons and who make statements that engage our emotions appear as mirrors of our beliefs and thoughts.

What we see in the “mirror” of our lives is who we really are. Frankly, viewing ourselves from every angle of our senses can be scary. We were never taught as a child that everything we perceive in our world is reflections of our own beliefs; only now are we beginning to understand this powerful message. Just consider the magnificence and significance of knowing that everything around us is a reflection of who we are every minute of the day!

Our every belief and thought is transparent for the world to see. Every belief we have about people, life, God, relationships, and much more reflects in our mirror of life.”

Gary Spinell, in “Beyond Intent”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, October 27th, 2014 by Ching Ning Chu in THICK FACE BLACK HEART

“When one’s duty is performed with a sense of detachment, the very work performed becomes a sacrifice and therefore a worship to our Maker. What do I mean by detachment? Because we are made of flesh, it is necessary to receive a monetary reward to support our life. Being overly concerned with the reward will never enhance the outcome of our work but instead will interfere with our performance. When an archer’s eye is on the prize rather than the bull’s-eye, he surely will miss the bull’s-eye as well as the prize.

What do I mean by sacrifice? Sacrifice is an act of offering – offering our labor to the One who grants us the ability to act. We perform our work without the attachment to self-gratification. Just adopting this attitude, our efforts become a sacrifice to our Maker. Thus, the sacrifice serves as worship.

Treating your work as sacrifice and worship will not lessen your compensation. Whatever reward we deserve will come to us. In fact, this attitude will transform the ordinary task to something sacred. It will enhance your performance and lead to greater compensation.”

Chin-Ning Chu, in “Thick Face, Black Heart”

PONDER on THIS for Friday, October 24th, 2015 by Philip Comella in THE COLLAPSE OF MATERIALISM

“When future historians write the chronicle of our age, they will tell the story of a people rising to the realization that together they dream the world. This realization – or enlightenment – will start slowly and then gain momentum as the evidence supporting it builds and other explanations for the world begin to fade away. As the realization grows, it will mark the beginning of a new world, one that reflects humankind’s highest dream: a people united in body and in spirit. This new world will be joined together by a higher truth, a transcendent purpose, a unified way of thinking that connects our souls with the galaxies spiraling high above in the cosmos.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, October 23rd, 2014 by Paul Ferrini in THE SILENCE OF THE HEART

“Every fear or insecurity you have about yourself is a button waiting to be pushed. The fact that people push these buttons is not at all remarkable. What is remarkable is that you blame them for pushing them. When you wear a sign that says “hit me,” are you surprised that a few people come along and take you literally? True, not everyone does. Some people just laugh and move along. But others stop and glare at you or take you at your word. They are wearing a sign that says “hit me” too. They know you how feel. They know you need to be hit to feel better about yourself. You have been a bad girl or boy and you need to be punished. They are only too happy to oblige.

People who attack you are doing what they, in their self-deluded way, think you want them to do. They are doing it “for your own good.” They are always able to justify their behavior toward you and you in turn can justify it too.

Never do you think “This is unacceptable. This should not and cannot happen. I will not permit it.” If the abused were to believe and communicate this fully, abuse could not happen.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014 by Fr. Anthony DeMello in AWARENESS

“Don’t ask the world to change – you change first. Then you’ll get a good enough look at the world so that you’ll be able to change whatever you think ought to be changed. Take the obstruction out of your own eye. If you don’t, you have lost the right to change anyone or anything. Till you are aware of yourself, you have no right to interfere with anyone else or with the world.

Now the danger of attempting to change others or change things when you yourself are not aware is that you may be changing things for your own convenience, your pride, your dogmatic convictions and beliefs, or just to relieve your negative feelings. First, cope with YOUR negative feelings so that when you move out to change others, you’re not coming from hate or negativity but from love. It may seem strange, too, that people can be very hard on others and still be very loving. The surgeon can be hard on a patient and yet loving. Love can be very hard indeed.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, October 21st, 2014 by Neale Donald Walsch in FRIENDSHIP WITH GOD

“So this is how you’ve got it constructed: if I’m to grant you your reward in heaven, I expect you to do things My way. And this you call God’s love. Then, you hold each other in the same place of expectation, and you call this love. Yet it not love, in either case, for love expects nothing save what freedom provides, and freedom know nothing of expectation.

When you do not require a person to show up as you imagine you need them to be, then you can drop expectation. Expectation goes out the window. Then you love them exactly as they are. Yet this can only happen when you love your Self exactly as you are. And that can only happen when you love Me exactly as I am. In order to do that you must know me as I am, not as you have imagined me to be.

That is why the first step in having a friendship with God is to know God, the second step is to trust the God that you know, and the third step is to love the God that you know and trust. You do that by treating God as someone you know and trust.”

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

PONDER on THIS for Monday, October 20th, 2014 by Russell Kyle in AWAKENED LIVING

“The shift to a higher awareness begins with a change within, a shift it perception; a change in our outlook on life. It is to become aware of the truth that the world that we think determines our happiness is actually only a reflection of our state of mind. Our ideas, judgments, beliefs, points of view, prejudices, hopes, expectations, and fears have become for us a very obscured pair of glasses through which we view our world.

We point the finger at the so called problems, when the true problem is blurring our vision of that which we are pointing. Our view of the world is not as clear as we may think. In fact, in regards to thinking, we can’t even really believe everything we think. Our vision, thinking, has been shaded and obscured by our taught, self and otherwise, interpretations. So long we have lived blaming others or outside situations for our inner discomfort when really the cause of the discomfort is our and has been all along. We have chosen our thoughts, beliefs, and interpretations so we too are choosing the world we live in. We are the creators of our experience, as we choose to interpret it so do we experience it. That’s the bottom line.”

Russell Kyle, in “Awakened Living”
