Best of PONDER on THIS for Friday, August 29th, 2014 by Dan Millman in EVERYDAY ENLIGHTENMENT

“When you notice yourself avoiding taking action because you feel nervous or reluctant, that is your moment of truth. What will you do? Anyone who has faced a moment of truth – who has felt the fear and leaped from the airplane, walked onto that stage and sat down to the piano or begun speaking to an audience, or otherwise walked to the raw edge and leaped – knows something that more timid souls do not. That once you are fully engaged, immersed in the activity, the fear either vanishes or fades, because your attention is no longer focused on what might happen; you are absorbed by what IS HAPPENING. Fear may remain, but you don’t notice it.”

Dan Millman, in “Everyday Enlightenment”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, August 28th, 2014 by Nicolya Christi in 2012 A CLARION CALL

“Most of us forget our worldly mission and the gifts we incarnate with remain unexpressed. When we lose touch with our true Self, we are left with a deep sense of deep discontent and a marked lack of fulfillment. This inner vacuum causes many to find solace in religion, consumerism (the new religion), addictions, an unhealthy preoccupation with the news, media, and politics, sex, or anything that will fill that void. This inner void develops in early childhood when we may be ignored, humiliated, or shamed for attempting to express our own creator spirit, which is but a reflection of the Divine Creator Spirit. We need to fully express our creative energy (each one of us is creative in our own way) and connect to our higher purpose so that we can enhance the world we live in.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, August 27th, 2014 by Sanaya Roman in SPIRITUAL GROWTH

“To effectively get your work out to the world, you will need to learn to detach from what others think of you. It is important not to worry about being liked, appreciated, or understood. Learn to detach from needing praise or validation; others may simply not be aware enough to see the value of what you are doing. Some people feel threatened by new ideas, and they may express skepticism or criticize your work. Learn to detach from people’s reactions and value your work according to your own internal sense of its worth.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, August 26th, 2014 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in YOU’LL SEE IT WHEN YOU BELIEVE IT

“Remember, our days are the precious currency of our life. In effect, how we spend our days is a measure of the quality of our life. When our days are spent in unsatisfying tasks in which we feel ungratified, simply spinning our wheels to pay the bills, we are working to satisfy something outside of ourselves, like our financial obligations. If you choose to satisfy financial debts by doing work you dislike, you are constantly thinking about and centered on what you dislike. In fact, a third of your entire life becomes focused on thoughts which are negative. Since what you focus on expands, you are going to find this negativity enlarging in your life. Your life literally becomes focused on what you dislike. When you are experiencing your daily life doing work which you do not love, you are operating from a scarcity consciousness.”

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

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, August 25th, 2014 by Fr. Anthony DeMello in AWARENESS

“Who’s living in you? It’s pretty horrifying when you come to know that. You think you are free, but there probably isn’t a gesture, a thought, an emotion, an attitude, a belief in you that isn’t coming from someone else. Isn’t that horrible? And you don’t know it. Talk about a mechanical life that was stamped into you. You feel pretty strongly about certain things, and you think it is you who are feeling strongly about them, but are you really? It’s going to take a lot of awareness for you to understand that perhaps this thing you call “I” is simply a conglomeration of your past experiences, of your conditioning and programming.

That’s painful. In fact, when you’re beginning to awaken, you experience a great deal of pain. It’s painful to see your illusions being shattered. Everything that you thought you had built up crumbles and that’s painful. That’s what repentance is all about; that’s what waking up is all about.”

Best of PONDER on THIS for Friday, August 22nd, 2014 by Wayne W. Dyer in THERE’S A SPIRITUAL SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM

“Don’t attempt to fake happiness in the face of sadness. Instead, identify yourself as being aware of sadness as it occurs, then ask yourself if you wish to stay in this emotional state. If the answer is no, then move toward a mental understanding of the sadness by recognizing that feeling sad is the result of how you are choosing to think. Sadness is purely and totally located in your mind; it does not exist in the world.

Once you acknowledge your absolute right to be sad, decide how long you want to stay in that state, understand that it is the result of your thoughts and lowered energy, and then you can let it go. This is accomplished by bringing joyful thoughts into your present moment and watching the sadness fly away.

This little mental technique of being able to acknowledge, understand, and disperse can be accomplished in a few seconds, or you can make it last for weeks if you so choose. The point is that by bringing awareness to sadness while you are feeling it, you give yourself the option of replacing it with joy, which is the spiritual solution to the error of sadness.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, August 21st, 2014 by John Selby in EXPAND THIS MOMENT

“Here’s the question, what would happen if you actually did love yourself just as you are? Most people seem to be downright afraid of doing this. What is this fear? Beyond the Christian programming that tells us we are born hopeless sinners, there’s something else going on here, and we need to look right into the heart of it.

Many of us seem to be afraid that, if we relax and accept ourselves with all of our shortcomings, we’ll fail to succeed and survive. Here we are again, looking at the fear of death as a driver of our lives. Our society compels us to perpetually try to improve ourselves, and the constant need to achieve is a plague on our society. We all push our kids to be superachievers at the top of the class, even though this means that most of them end up feeling like underachievers. This leads to the loss of self-acceptance, and in turn makes them feel miserable, unworthy, and depressed as adults.

It’s crazy, really, to push children as we do, simply out of fear. The majority of people in our culture feel like failures in life because they didn’t meet the impossible expectations of their parents and teachers.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, August 20th, 2014 by Stuart Wilde in AFFIRMATIONS

“You are made up of billions of beliefs. Beliefs about your body, beliefs about your intellectual worth, beliefs about how attractive you are. Beliefs about God, sin, life after death, morality, beliefs about the tribe or society you live in, beliefs about your family and what should or should not be done, and so on. Spiritually, these beliefs are part of your evolution, and in a way they are good because they allow you to step beyond them. By dealing with this weakness, bit by bit, you begin to believe in yourself. And so when the tribe says to you, “Throw two oranges into the river to appease the hippopotamus god, or the crops will not grow,” you have the courage to say, “Baloney.” And you go out and buy a bag of fertilizer instead.

Spiritual growth basically means going beyond mass thinking, to a point where you have so much confidence in your reality that you know you can stand alone. In the process, you discover that you are the Living Spirit – eternal, immortal, and infinite – that in fact you are limitless.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, August 19th, 2014 by Stuart Wilde in THE LITTLE MONEY BIBLE

“Because celebrities have so many observers, they seem to exist in a well-defined particle state and thus give the illusion that they are more solid and secure than ordinary folk. They seem very real and larger than life, not in the usual hazy-wave state of other strangers. So they are seen by the millions as special glitzy particles. This helps ordinary people feel that their own energy is higher and safer – because they have bumped into a celeb’ a famoso of extreme particle wonderfulness.

It’s all a bit silly; it’s an illusion. Celebs are not more secure than you are; usually they are very insecure and neurotic – the ones I’ve met anyway. And, of course, no can permanently pick up your energy; you have to raise it yourself. Anyway, there is no high or low, is there? But the idea of importance and specialness excites people, and it sells newspapers and advertising, but it is not real, is it?

The trick is not to fall for all this specialness routine. It’s an ego-trip, and it burns load of energy. Trying to convince people that you are okay, or trying to get them to admire you and see you as special, wastes time. In the end, it will cost you money. Once you establish such a view with others, you’re a big shot and you have to pay for dinner!”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, August 18th, 2014 by John Randolph Price in SUPERBEINGS

“Understand that “spiritual consciousness” does not necessarily refer to one’s religion, but rather to one’s awareness and understanding of his or her true identity. We all know people who are supposedly very “religious” – yet the life they experience on this earth may be more hell than heaven. And to blame any misfortune on God, as if it could possibly be His will, is total ignorance. God’s will for man and all creation is absolute good, and God cannot will or endorse sickness or limitation of any kind.

To develop spiritually does not mean just going to church on Sunday and being “good” to appease an angry god who is keeping score somewhere in the sky. There is no such god! To grow spiritually means the increase of one’s understanding of the true nature of God, man, and the creative laws of the universe.”
