PONDER on THIS for Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 by Alan Cohen in THE DRAGON DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE

“Harmonious living tells of harmonious thinking. A turbulent life reveals some kind of inner turmoil or lack of resolution. We may believe that we are positive, settled people, but if we notice troubles or conflicts in our outer conditions, we must look within to see what inner negativity is bubbling, or bubbled at some earlier time. If you want to know what’s in your subconscious, you don’t have to go to a psychiatrist or a psychic. Just look at the condition of your bedroom, your car, your house, your health, and your relationships. They are photographs of your subconscious. Outer events are simply the skin and bones of inner thoughts, and to really take control of our lives, we must treat them as one.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, October 1st, 2014 by Arnold Patent in YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL

“Our rational society has taught us to judge, analyze, or evaluate virtually everything we experience. So ingrained is this training, that we feel incomplete when we haven’t processed each experience in this way. Yet judging, evaluating or analyzing anybody inhibits our ability to response to the real self of that person. People are not their thoughts and actions. People are their essences, which are always perfect.

Once we evaluate, judge, or analyze anything, we immediately stop the flow of energy through us. This creates discomfort in our bodies. We are then literally stuck with an experience the way we perceive it regardless of how it really is. Until we let go of our judgment of an experience, it ceases to be its true self and it continues to cause us discomfort.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 by Stuart Wilde in SIXTH SENSE

“The simplest and easiest way to go beyond your pain is by working on and concentrating on your strengths. I know that psychologists will tell you that you have to take your wounds, your inner-child traumas, and the various psychological fractures within you to a therapist, who will help you identify them. Then you have to relive them in your mind’s eye and act them out, thereby releasing them.

There’s nothing wrong with that system, but it has one drawback. By dredging it all up and talking about it, the ego rises up because it’s being noticed, and it focuses on the injustice of it all. The ol’ ego hops up on its righteous soapbox, beating its chest, calling for attention and sympathizers: “Look at me, what a horrible life I’ve had. I need help and care and special treatment. I need attention, and people should commiserate with me and cut me a lot of slack…” blah, blah, yawn, yawn…Time passes, and all you’re doing is dis-ease.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, September 29th, 2014 by Stuart Wilde in THE LITTLE MONEY BIBLE

“Prayer is a form of invocation, especially when we pray out loud. But to make prayer really work for you, you have to make the subtle shift from asking and begging to knowing. If you say, “God, send me money,” that’s not an invocation; it has an air of uncertainty about it. It feels weak. Invocation requires you to state your need as granted, and to be certain that your loot is already on its way – delivered and real in a parallel universe, and on its way to this 3-D reality we call home.

So instead of praying quietly, pray out loud, stating each desire as fact. Remember, “A great prize is about to come into my life.” “A very profitable opportunity is on its way to me.” “A large sum is dropping into my lap effortlessly,” and so on. Invoke, invoke, you’ll never be broke.”

Best of PONDER on THIS for Friday, September 26th, 2014 by Sanaya Roman in SPIRITUAL GROWTH

“You are the source, the creator of your life. You are the one who reaches upward, grows spiritually, and connects with your Higher Self. You create your reality through your thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and intent, which determine your vibration and thus the people, objects, events, and circumstances you attract to your life. Your emotions and your intent determine how fast you get what you are thinking about. Because you create your own reality, you can choose any reality you want.

Because there is a time lag between your thoughts and their appearance in your reality, some people do not yet realize they create their reality. Yet, you could trace every event that happens to people back to a thought, picture, belief, emotion, or intent they had at some point in their lives. EVERY decision and choice you make is shaping your reality.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, September 25th, 2014 by Alan Cohen in WHY YOUR LIFE SUCKS AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

“If someone asks you for help, serving them takes on an entirely different dynamic than trying to fix them. If a friend comes to you and asks, “Can you show me how to rollerblade?” or “Do you have any feedback for me on the talk I just gave?” or “Is everything all right between us?” you are being offered an open door. In such a case your response will be valued and heard, for you will be expressing from a position of clarity and service. You will not be trying to fix, but assist. And your results will be far more effective.

A Course in Miracles suggests that before you enter into any situation calling for teaching, healing, or human relations, remind yourself, “I am here only to be truly helpful.” The operative word here is truly.”

“If you’re going through an emotional time, ask yourself, ‘What is my opinion here?’ You might say, “I’m insecure, because I think I might be losing my job.” Okay, stop and pull back. What can you do about it? THE WAY IT IS, IS THE WAY IT IS. You perceive that things aren’t going well at work, so what’s the next step? Action. Rather than running away because of emotion, like a little child who gets scared and flees, when you’re faced with adversity, step forward in your feelings, not back. Write it down and put it on your refrigerator: “In challenging circumstances, I will step forward, not back.” Review the situation and take action.

When there’s trouble at work, what can you do to fix it? Who can you talk to, to square things away? The factory may be laying off people, but they probably won’t lay off everyone, so what can you do to improve your performance? What can you do to fix the trouble? Well, first you can create more energy. But if that doesn’t work, what’s the worst that can happen? You’re going to get chucked out of the job, and you’ll find something else to do. So maybe the universe is helping to release you form one dumb job, opening doors for you to find something more creative and more profitable to do.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014 by Michelle Bersell in F.E.E.L.: FEEL EVERY EMOTION AS LOVE

“An easy way of awakening from the ego’s trickeries coming from guilt is to listen for the “shoulds.” Stop “shoulding” yourself to death! If you listen to your internal dialogue when your guilt is triggered, all you will hear is: “I really ought to have done…” or “Am I a bad person because I didn’t…”.

What you want to be listening for behind those shoulds is how you believe you fell short of a certain standard. Remember, each time you feel guilt, it’s an opportunity to ask yourself: “What am I buying into about who I think I should be?” Then ask yourself if this “should” fits with your highest version of self in this specific circumstance.

Believe me, the shoulds are always there, especially when you are calling on more of your potential to be expressed. This is because you often have to let go of who you once were to become the person you are meant to be.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, September 22nd, 2014 by Don Miguel Ruiz in THE FOUR AGREEMENTS

“The best way to say, “I love you God,” is to live your life doing your best. The best way to say “Thank you, God,” is by letting go of the past and living in the present moment, right here and now. Whatever life takes away from you, let it go. When you surrender and let go of the past, you allow yourself to be fully alive in the moment. Letting go of the past means you can enjoy the dream that is happening right now.

If you live in a past dream, you don’t enjoy what is happening right now because you will always wish it to be different than it is. There is no time to miss anyone or anything because you are alive. Not enjoying what is happening right now is living in the past and being only half alive. This leads to self-pity, suffering, and tears.

You were born with the right to be happy. You were born with the right to love, to enjoy and to share your love. You are alive, so take your life and enjoy it. Don’t resist life passing through you, because that is God passing through you. Just your existence proves the existence of God.”

Don Migul Ruiz, in “The Four Agreements”

Best of PONDER on THIS for Friday, September 19th, 2014 by Louise Hay in YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE

“Relationships are mirrors of ourselves. What we attract always mirrors either qualities we have or beliefs we have about relationships. This is true whether it is a boss, a coworker, an employee, a friend, a lover, a spouse or a child. The things you don’t like about these people are either what you yourself do or would like to do, or what you believe. You could not attract them or have them in your life if the way they are didn’t somehow complement your own life.

If you have a boss who is critical or impossible to please, look within. Either you do that on some level or you have a belief that “Bosses are always critical and impossible to please.” If you have an employee who won’t obey or doesn’t follow through, look to see where you do that and clean it up. Firing someone is too easy; it doesn’t clear your pattern.

This is the ONLY way to change others – change ourselves first. Change your patterns and you will find “they” are different too. Blame is useless. Blaming only gives away our power. Keep your power. Without power, we cannot make changes. The helpless victim cannot see a way out.”
