BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, July 7th, 2020 by William L. Murtha in DYING FOR A CHANGE

Will Murtha: I understand much of what you are saying, but I’m still struggling to find out where I went drastically off course.

Voice of Higher Presence: Life is a walk, not a sprint. Do not chastise yourself, as you have done many times before, when the answers to life first elude you. Your life is a journey, not a fixed destination. Therefore, allow the truth you are constantly searching for to slowly bubble to the surface. If you would have taken more time with the important issues in your life, then many of your answers would have been revealed. Only when you slow down can the truth to your life be uncovered.

In your insane drive to be someone in life, you unfortunately looked past the very essence of what is important. You took for granted those things of beauty that you should have cherished close to your heart. Just ponder for a moment. You enjoyed great health. You had a secure, loving family. Yet this was all taken for granted. You wanted more, and yet, sadly, you did not realize that life’s treasures were already in your possession.”

William L. Murtha, in “Dying for a Change”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, July 6th, 2020 by Don Miguel and Don Jose Ruiz in THE FIFTH AGREEMENT

“Humans are the only animals on earth who punish themselves a thousand times or more for the same mistake, and who punish everybody else a thousand times or more for the same mistake. How can we talk about injustice in the rest of the world when there is no justice in the world inside our own head? The entire universe is ruled by justice, but by true justice, not by the distortion of justice that we artists have created. True justice is facing what I call action-reaction. We live in a world of consequences; for every action there’s a reaction. True justice is to pay one time for every mistake we make. And how many times do we pay for every mistake? Obviously, this is not justice.

Let’s say you’re living with guilt and shame for a mistake you made ten years ago. The excuse for your suffering is, “I made a terrible mistake,” and you’re still suffering for something that happened ten years ago, but the truth is you’re suffering from something that happened ten seconds ago. You judged yourself again for the same mistake, and of course the big judge says, “You need to be punished.” It’s simple action-reaction. The action is self-judgment; the reaction is self punishment in the form of guilt and shame. All your life you repeat the same action, hoping to have a different reaction, and it never happens. The only way to change your life is to change the action, and then the reaction will change.”

“True knowing does not come from any book, but from the heart. If a belief is the tool you use to draw lines in the sand in order to set yourself apart from the rest of God’s creation, you might want to consider why you would want to do such a thing. And, you might also want to reflect and seriously evaluate what you believe, where you learned it, who told you to believe this way, why someone might want you to think like this, and how this belief is actually working in your life.

Believe me when I say that this belief is definitely working in your life – all beliefs do. If, however, a belief causes separation, in any way, it is probably not working the way you expect it to. If you believe, for instance, that “in God, all things are possible,” then you will need a pretty small definition of ALL if you wish to exclude certain possibilities – like the possibility that you may be wrong about the whole thing, for instance. Who knows? And if you are in the habit of qualifying those things which may or may not be possible in the eyes, or kingdom, of God, you are a braver soul than I.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, July 2nd, 2020 by Jeff Maziarek in SPIRITUALITY SIMPLIFIED

“According to Book 1 of the Conversations with God trilogy, the correct prayer is never one of supplication, but rather a prayer of gratitude. By thanking God in advance for what you intend to experience in your life, you acknowledge that the seed is planted in consciousness, and as such, already exists in effect. Naturally, the key to this approach to prayer is faith, which is having such confidence that something will occur that you literally have no doubt about it. That amount of conviction requires that you reach the point where you don’t merely believe you will experience what you intend to experience, but rather that you know you will.

The key to achieving this level of confidence, is coming to the awareness that if the God-Force can manage billions of chemical reactions every minute just to keep you alive, then it can certainly be trusted to assist you in bringing the exact people and/or circumstances into your life at precisely the right time.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, July 1st, 2020 by Marianne Williamson in EVERYDAY GRACE

“We should not have to choose between being in the flow of God’s love and having a successful career. Indeed, the former fosters the latter. Yet in our society, it’s very easy to buy in to the ego’s perspective on employment and career. The ego represents the belief in our own, small, separated self, and sustains its life by defending that belief. And this belief fosters fear, because it is not a belief that is natural to us.

We then seek to overcome that fear by building up our own individual kingdoms of money or prestige or power. We are often faced with the temptation to build our own career wins on someone else’s losses. But once we realize that we are not separate from others, that indeed what we do to others we are literally doing to ourselves, then our perspective changes. When we remember who we really are, we embrace our interconnectedness with all of life and the infinitude of our powers. We aren’t here to bolster our individual kingdoms; we are here to glorify God’s kingdom of love.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, June 30th, 2020 by Paul Rademacher in A SPIRITUAL HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE UNIVERSE

“Rage can be a very telling thing. It has the potential to be one of the greatest teachers, because it lets us know when we’re coming dangerously close to an unconscious life theme. And why is it unconscious? Because we’re so embarrassed or threatened by it that we don’t even want to admit it to ourselves. So we lock it up in the dungeon of our forgotten memories and assign rage to act as a sentry, armed with instructions to shoot first and ask questions never!

If we’re aware enough to step back from our rage for just a moment, it can sometimes allow us to see unconscious forces that have been driving us since childhood. Compulsions and motivations that have lingered in the background can snap into focus. New insights can emerge that have the power to set us free – if we’re aware.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, June 29th, 2020 by Terry Cole-Whittaker in LIVE YOUR BLISS

“Believing that we lack beauty, intelligence, social position, wealth, and talent, that we are not as good as others, is painful and grossly limiting and it’s not true…Making our life’s purpose about proving our worth as a person is pathetic and a waste of our precious opportunity as a human being. Our endeavors to prove that we are good enough, or even better than others, only serve to invalidate our value in our own minds, because no matter what we do, we will still feel unworthy until we understand the lie and give it up by realizing our perfection as godlike souls. When our core belief is “I am not enough,” this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Just drop it.

Affirm: I am enough and have always been enough. Dropping the concept “I am not good enough to be loved and approved of or to prosper” involves dropping our concern about what anyone, including our parents, children, and mate, thinks of us.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, June 26th, 2020 by John St. Augustine in EVERY MOMENT MATTERS

“There will always be periods when it seems as if you are getting nowhere, and life’s a bore. Yet you find that by putting one foot in front of the other, not letting someone else fill your pack, and having the courage to follow the vision that is given you, you can live your dreams. As a matter of fact, that is what you are being called to do. On the trip, you will find out that the “light” the world needs shines from you, but can only be revealed if you peel back the layers and get down to the truth.

While it’s easy to be lonely in a world filled with despair and pain, you are, in fact, not alone and never have been. How are you going to do it? Never mind that. Why you take the walk is more important. Your path is calling…can you hear it?”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, June 25th, 2020 by Dr. Judith Orloff, M.D. in SECOND SIGHT

“Spirituality is a lifelong pursuit. You don’t reach a quick epiphany, get struck enlightened, and suddenly arrive. As Stephen Mitchell writes, at times spiritual transformation can be like “cleaning the heart with a piece of steel wool,” with clarity always the goal. While reading his book The Gospel According to Jesus, I was especially impressed by the story of the spiritual journey of Chao-Chou, a Zen monk from the T’ang Dynasty. Achieving enlightenment when only seventeen years old, he still chose to remain with his teacher for another forty years.

He did this out of love, but also to heighten his insight further and purify his character. Other monks left to teach at a much earlier age. But Chao-Chou was matchless in his excellence, and patience. Finally, at the age of eighty, he felt ready to teach. Chao-Chou proposed a humble philosophy: “If I meet a hundred-year-old man and I have something to teach him, I will teach; if I meet an eight-year-old boy and he has something to teach me, I will learn.”…Chao-Chou can be a model for us all.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, June 24th, 2020 by Deepak Chopra in THE SEVEN SPIRITUAL LAWS OF SUCCESS

“Least effort is expended when your actions are motivated by love, because nature is held together by the energy of love. When you seek power and control over other people, you waste energy. When you seek money or power for the sake of the ego, you spend energy chasing the illusion of happiness instead of enjoying happiness in the moment. When you seek money for personal gain only, you cut off the flow of energy to yourself, and interfere with the expression of nature’s intelligence. But when your actions are motivated by love, your energy multiplies and accumulates – and then surplus energy you gather and enjoy can be channeled to create anything that you want, including unlimited wealth.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020 by William L. Murtha in DYING FOR A CHANGE

Will Murtha: So every life situation turning up, regardless of whether we initially think of it as bad, is a direct reflection of something that we have called forward?

Voice of Higher Presence: That’s it. Look at every life situation that shows up, and you will come to the divine truth that what we put out there boomerangs back to us. This is because life is a perfect reflection of our innermost thoughts. What we experience is often a mirror of how our mind sees the world. You may think that random events are just showing up in your life by chance, but they are not. They have been magnetized to you, by you. Everything you feel and witness is being drawn to you by your level of consciousness.

When you come to live this level of understanding, you will have made one of the most profound jumps in your conscious awareness. You will come to realize that everything you experience in life, and every person you stumble across, is there for a reason…All the people who have shown up at every crossroad of our lives have shown up to serve our intentions. They have appeared to us because, on one conscious level or another, we have magnetized them toward us. And that is because the relationship they bring into our life space offers numerous lessons for where our thoughts and emotions say they wish to take us.”

“Having goals is a way of abandoning now in favor of a plan for some future now. The absence of a lot of specific goals helps cultivate you awareness that you are not alone on this journey. You begin to trust in the divine guidance to assist you in your present moment. You come to know that the universe will handle the details if you surrender and let go somewhat.

Have you ever been told that you must attend certain schools for a specific curriculum? I want you to know that it doesn’t matter what school you attend. If you have an inner drive to know something or excel in a given area, nothing will dissuade you. There are books in all kinds of libraries — at small community colleges, in your home town. You will find them!”

“The components of effective prayer are: A desire that you believe in and that is not detrimental to you, or anyone, in any way; an effectively formatted request, thought form, affirmation, or prayer, that adequately expresses your desire to the Creator; and Belief in the process and that your desired outcome is already assured.

Now, you have to have an effective delivery method, which includes: A quiet, peaceful place; a state of mental relaxation (alpha-state); visualization of your desired outcome; and the delivery of your properly formatted prayer action or thought pattern in a way that leaves no doubt in your subconscious mind as to the reality of the outcome. When you combine these elements, you change your world.”

“Spend a moment every day thinking of someone to thank. This simple strategy, which may take only a few seconds to complete, has long been one of the most important habits I have ever engaged in. I try to remember to start my day thinking of someone to thank. To me, gratitude and inner peace go hand in hand. The more I genuinely grateful I feel for the gift of my life, the more peaceful I feel. Gratitude, then, is worthy of a little practice.

If you’re anything like me, you probably have many people in your life to feel grateful for: friends, family members, people from your past, teachers, gurus, people from work, someone who gave you a break, as well as countless others. You may want to thank a higher power for the gift of life itself, or for the beauty of nature.”

“Take a moment to access your inner voice. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Hold that breath for a second or two, then release it with a sigh. Do this several times. Ask yourself the question, “What does my heart want to tell me right now?” Pause and let a few words float up from your heart. Try not to edit or to judge them. Turn off your inner critic and let your heart write. Write down these words, and take ten or fifteen minutes to expand on what your heart has told you. Then spend a few more minutes reflecting on what you’ve written. Pay special attention in the coming week to the ways listening deeply to your inner voice helps you.”
