BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, January 19th, 2018 by Paul Ferrini in THE SILENCE OF THE HEART

“Your commitment to the expression of your gift will transform your life. All the structures in your life which hold you in limitation begin to fall apart as soon as you make this inner commitment to yourself. Trying to change these structures from the outside in is futile. That is not how change occurs.

Change occurs from the inside out. As you embrace your gift and move through your fear of expressing it, old, outdated lifestyle structures are de-energized. Without receiving new energy from you, these structures dissolve. You don’t have to do anything. As they dissolve, they create a more open space within your consciousness for the gift to be recognized, given and received.

Your work situation, your family life, your sleeping and eating patterns all begin to shift as you get about the business of honoring yourself and moving toward your joy. Without struggle, you unhook from roles and relationships that no longer serve your continued growth. This happens spontaneously. There is no forcing or violation involved.”

Paul Ferrini, in “The Silence Of The Heart”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, January 18th, 2018 by Rhonda Byrne in THE SECRET

“When you feel bad about yourself it feels as though you are sucking the life out of you, because all of your good, on every single subject—including health, wealth, and love—is on the frequency of joy and feeling good. The feeling of having unlimited energy, and that amazing feeling of health and wellness, are all on the frequency of feeling good. When you don’t feel good about You, you are on a frequency that is attracting more people, situations, and circumstances that will continue to make you feel bad about You.

You must change your focus and begin to think about all the things that are wonderful about You. Look for the positives in You. As you focus on those things, the law of attraction will show you more great things about You. You attract what you think about. All you have to do is begin with one prolonged thought of something good about You, and the law of attraction will respond by giving You more like thoughts. Look for the good things about You. Seek and ye shall find!”

Rhonda Byrne, in “The Secret”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, January 17th, 2018 by Sanaya Roman in LIVING A LIFE OF JOY

“Every single part of you has a gift for you and is there as your friend. There is no voice within you that does not have the intent to help you. It may be that it does not have an accurate picture of what you want, or it was set up many years ago and is still operating from an old program. The part of you that experiences fear, for instance, may be trying to protect you in the best way it knows. Your journey in this lifetime is to bring all those parts up into your higher vision and purpose. Learn to love each of your selves, for as you love them you begin the process of uniting them with your higher self.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, January 16th, 2018 by John Randolph Price in SUPERBEINGS

“Never condemn another’s religion, because that particular teaching may be vitally important to his or her soul growth at that point in time. But prophets, teachers and preachers do emerge from time to time who would hinder the soul’s growth with messages that contradict the nature of God, which is Love and the nature of life, which is joy.

Many speak via the avenue of mass media from the platform of organized religion and from the Bible, and so there is credibility to their words. But if they condemn and judge others, if they preach self-degradation, if they rally the masses against a particular segment of society, if they attempt to limit the individual’s freedom or freedom of choice with any form of repression, and if they spread fear of God and mistrust toward man, they are not teaching the Truth.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, January 15th, 2018 by Judith Wright in THE ONE DECISION

“We all have these haunting doubts and self-limiting beliefs that try to present themselves as facts. These thoughts represent stinking thinking that distorts our reality by masquerading as Truth. This way of thinking can become so ingrained that it talks you out of your value, entices you into false substitutes, and creates the illusion of more.

Mistaken beliefs and assumptions spawn stinking thinking. It takes many forms: rationalizing, making excuses, being defensive, over-generalizing, thinking you are unloved or unworthy, labeling, blaming, minimizing, projecting, being prejudiced, mind reading, being superstitious, obfuscating, all-or-nothing thinking—all ways of fudging or denying the truth, escaping from the deeper reality underneath.

Stinking thinking robs you of MORE. This false thinking keeps you from achieving what you could, and discourages you from trying new things, taking risks, and creating MORE. You may use these thoughts to talk yourself out of pursuing MORE before you even get a fighting chance. Stinking thinking lowers motivation and kills hope. And it’s how most of us think and talk most of the time.”>

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, January 12th, 2018 by Stuart Wilde in SILENT POWER

“Trying to Be Someone comes from an insecurity, which stems from the ego’s need for observers and admirers. It needs acknowledgment and stimulation to feel solid. But leaning psychologically and emotionally out into the world, demanding to be noticed, trying to be cool, seeking approval and acceptance, trying to impress, seeking praise and respect, creates imbalance and weakness. It is, in fact, an affirmation that says, “I’m not okay. I need others to approve of me in order to feel secure.” By leaning psychologically, you weaken yourself.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, January 11th, 2018 by Arnold M. Patent in YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL

“As we do what we love because we love to do it, we channel energy into the creation of high quality products and services. The people we attract are the ones who will support us in maintaining that level of energy and who want to enjoy the experience of that quality of energy. These are the people who will buy our products or use our services and will be happy to pay us well for them. Who would not enjoy purchasing a product or service offered by someone whose primary motivation is the joy received from creating it?

The amount of energy we allow to flow through us is related to our willingness to be in alignment with the Universe and to support It by doing what we love. The more perfect our alignment, that is the more perfectly we allow ourselves to express fully and freely what it is we love to do, the more energy we allow to flow through us, and the more abundance we experience.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, January 10th, 2018 by Neale Donald Walsch in CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD BOOK 1

“So, do you want your life to “take off”? Begin at once to imagine it the way you want it to be—and move into that. Check every thought, word, and action that does not fall into harmony with that. Move away from those.

When you have a thought that is not in alignment with your higher vision, change to a new thought, then and there. When you say a thing that is out of alignment with your grandest idea, make a note not to say something like that again. When you do a thing that is misaligned with your best intention, decide to make that the last time. And make it right with whomever was involved if you can.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, January 9th, 2018 by Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. in THE WAYS OF THE MYSTIC

“Do you remember the last time you felt truly passionate about an idea or a person? Passionate attraction leads to a wild, wonderful state in which energy abounds. Need to drive 100 miles to tryst with your lover after work, then drive home and go to work the next morning? No problem in the heightened state that infatuation creates. All things seem possible; all obstacles exciting challenges to surmount. In the case of infatuation with a lover, the spell and the energizing biochemical changes that it weaves, wear off in a few months.

In the case of a dream to which we are committed, such as helping others heal from their wounds, the spell may last for a lifetime. And for as long as we are passionate about our dream, we will have the energy to bring it into manifestation. Perhaps this is what the late mythologist Joseph Campbell was thinking about when he said, “Follow your bliss”.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, January 8th, 2018 by Jeff Maziarek in SPIRITUALITY SIMPLIFIED

“There is a real danger in strongly identifying yourself with your work or your job, for when the time comes that you no longer do that work, then your identity is effectively lost as well. Put another way, if what you do is who you are, then when you do it no longer, you will be nobody! Regardless, today many people tend to be very attached to the status that their employment supposedly provides them…

While enjoying and being fulfilled by one’s work is certainly important, it is quite another thing to become so identified with that work that one actually believes that their value as a person is based upon it. Whatever you do for a living is just one of several roles that you play in life (e.g., business-person, husband, wife, daughter, son, friend, etc.), and since your work can quickly change, it really has little to do with who you really are.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, January 5th, 2018 by Fr. Anthony DeMello S.J., in AWARENESS

“Everyone asks me what will happen when they finally arrive. Is this just curiosity? We’re always asking how would this fit into that system, or whether this would make sense in that context, or what it will feel like when we get there. Get started and you will know; it cannot be described.

It is said widely in the East, “those who know, do not say; those who say, do not know.” It cannot be said; only the opposite can be said. The guru cannot give you the truth. Truth cannot be put into words, into a formula. That isn’t the truth. That isn’t reality. Reality cannot be put into a formula. The guru can only point out your errors. When you drop your errors, you will know the truth.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, January 4th, 2018 by Dr. Joseph Murphy in THE POWER OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

“You spend about eight out of every twenty-four hours, or one-third of your entire life, in sleep. This is an inexorable law of life. This also applies to the animal and vegetable kingdoms. Sleep is a divine process, and many answers to our problems come to us when we are sound asleep on the bed. Many people have advocated the the theory that you get tired during the day, that you go to sleep to rest the body, and that a reparative process takes place while you sleep. Nothing rests in sleep. Your heart, lungs, and all your vital organs function while you are asleep. If you eat prior to sleep, the food is digested and assimilated; also, your skin secretes perspiration, and your nails and hair continue to grow.

Your subconscious mind never rests or sleeps. It is always active, controlling all your vital forces. The healing process takes place more rapidly while you are asleep as there is not interference from your conscious mind. Remarkable answers are given to you while you are asleep.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in REAL MAGIC

“The teacher is everywhere. The assistance you need will be provided by the universe as soon as you convert your readiness to willingness. Once you are willing you will find teachers in every niche of your life…

Teachers appear in various forms. Your teacher might be a tape that someone “accidentally” leaves in your car and that you “accidentally” play at just the right time. Last week you might have played it for two minutes and rejected the contents; now your willingness allows your teacher to be there for you. Your teacher might be a book or an article that a friend recommends. It might be your unplanned attendance at a lecture or a church service to which someone gave you their ticket because he or she had to be out of town; the message of the speaker seems to be directed specifically at you.

Your teacher might be a child who takes you by the hand and asks a question that you hadn’t considered before, and your answer to the child is your answer to yourself. Your teacher might be invisible and show up as a thought that comes over you in a quiet, contemplative moment and encourages you to go in a certain direction now…

When you, the student, are ready and willing, the teacher will show up. You simply have to look around, open your new eyes and silently ask yourself, “Who is my teacher?”

“Some view suffering as divine punishment for moral transgressions; others see it as a necessary part of the soul’s education and evolution. To find meaning in the suffering and adversity in your own life, look back to before they occurred, and observe yourself now—stronger, wiser, perhaps more compassionate as a result of your struggles. You may see in your own life how the path to Heaven may pass through Hell—and how we sometimes have to deal with the darkness before we can see the light.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, January 1st, 2018 by Richard Carlson, PH.D., in DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF

“It’s useful to think of relaxation as a quality of heart that you can access on a regular basis rather than something reserved for some later time. You can relax now. It’s helpful to remember that relaxed people can still be super achievers and, in fact, that relaxation and creativity go hand in hand. When I’m feeling uptight, for example, I don’t even try to write. But when I feel relaxed, my writing flows quickly and easily.

Being more relaxed involves training yourself to respond differently to the dramas of life—turning your melodrama into a mellow-drama. It come, in part, from remind yourself over and over again (with loving kindness and patience) that you have a choice in how you respond to life. You can learn to relate to your thinking as well as your circumstances in new ways. With practice, making these choices will translate into a more relaxed self.”
