“When we speak of the Great Secret of Life, we are speaking of what some call the Law of Attraction; but others simply quote Jesus, or the prophets of the Old Testament, and say that the Secret to Life is: “As a man thinketh, so is he.” Regardless of what you call it, we create our experience in our minds – with our thoughts, or prayers. And then, we reap in our bodies and lives what we have sown in our minds. This is simple ancient wisdom and truth. All great religions and philosophies speak of thought and emotions; all great governments have “think-tanks” full of scientist and “idea people” who think-up new technologies and strategies – to use thought-energy to create realities which never before existed. Prayer is concentrated thought; and prayer works – concentrated thought always produces results.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, November 9th, 2018 by Asara Lovejoy in THE ONE COMMAND

“We generate an electro-magnetic field of attraction or repulsion with our thoughts through the release, from our endocrine system, of hormones and chemicals known as peptides. We generate electro-magnetic charges with our thoughts that either attract to us or repel from us our experiences. Our thoughts travel through positive/negative receptors in every cell of our body and fire sequences in the neuro-net passages of our brain. These micro-electrical charges formed by our thinking are real. They influence our reality by magnetically attracting experiences of like kind to us in either a positive or negative manner, or by repelling experiences from us. Our unconscious thoughts that operate below our conscious awareness hold great power over our lives as they are firing the peptide messengers that unconsciously drive our choices.

When we desire to be masters and haven’t achieved it yet, there is a separation between the unconscious thoughts that are driving our choices, and the conscious thoughts of our desire.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, November 8th, 2018 by Thomas Moore in CARE OF THE SOUL

“Taking an interest in one’s own soul requires a certain amount of space for reflection and appreciation. Ordinarily we are so identified with movements of the psyche that we can’t stand back and take a good look at them. A little distance allows us to see the dynamics among the many elements that make up the life of the soul. By becoming interested in these phenomena, we begin to see our own complexity. Usually we feel that complexity as it hits us unawares from outside, in a multitude of problems and confusion.

If we knew the soul better, we might be ready for the conflicts of life. I often have the sense, when someone tells me anxiously about some knot they find themselves in, that what they perceive as an impossible and painful situation calling for professional intervention is simply the complexity of human life once again manifesting itself. Most of us bring to everyday life a somewhat naïve psychological attitude in our expectations that our lives and relationships will be simple. Love of the soul asks for some appreciation for its complexity.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, November 7th, 2018 by Anthony DeMello, S.J. in THE WAY TO LOVE

“Look into yourself and examine your reactions to persons and situations, and you will be appalled to discover the prejudiced thinking behind your reactions. It is almost never the concrete reality of this person or thing that you are responding to. You are responding to principles, ideologies, belief systems, economic, political, religious, psychological belief systems; to preconceived ideas and prejudices, whether positive or negative.

Take them one at a time, each person and thing and situation and search for your bias separating the reality here before you from your programmed perceptions and your projections. And this exercise will afford you a revelation as divine as any that the Scriptures could provide you with.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, November 6th, 2018 2018 by Wayne W. Dyer in MANIFEST YOUR DESTINY

“Think of your own desires to manifest as having been placed there by spirit, and that those desires, which are housed in love and service, are precisely what God wants to give you, and that your desire is the direct path to receiving those blessings. Let go of the idea that desire is selfishness and remind yourself that if you had no desires ever, you would still be living an infantile existence with toys in a sandbox.

Whenever you feel unworthy of having your manifestations arrive, remind yourself that no one is unworthy and that the same divine energy that flows through you flows through all of God’s children and that all are worthy: This includes you.

Your desires are the very tools that allow you to grow and experience the perfection of the universe. They take you beyond any limitations you might have embraced and lead you to a higher spiritual awareness.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, November 5th, 2018 by Pete Koerner in THE BELIEF FORMULA

“Suffering comes from thinking about the future, the past, or the self – or from the attachment to ideas about how these things should be. We can worry about the future and ask our God to protect us; or we can resent the past and seek comfort or compensation from God – or we can be quiet and still and listen. We spend most of our mental energy thinking up ways to change our lives or to avoid some uncomfortable experience, such as hunger, pain, loneliness, embarrassment, etc.

Most prayers are actually offerings of words to a God who – supposedly – already knows what you are going to say. Some say, “God doesn’t answer prayers because he can’t get a word in edge-wise!” Try this: “Go in your closet,” close your eyes, remove any external distractions, be quiet, be still, and listen. You’ll be amazed at what you can hear when you aren’t thinking and talking!”

“While it’s true that every cause you have set into motion will eventuate in a corresponding effect, don’t start looking over your shoulder for your past to catch up with you! Know why? Because you can always put a new cause into motion. That should be a comforting thought, considering all of the foolish things you may have done in the past. If you are dissatisfied with a part of your life, know that it is the effect of a cause that you have put into motion and that at any time you can start again. Your new cause will bring a new effect. The measure you give will be the measure you get.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, November 1st, 2018 by Eckhart Tolle in A NEW EARTH

“What is a negative emotion? An emotion that is toxic to the body and interferes with its balance and harmonious functioning. Fear, anxiety, anger, bearing a grudge, sadness, hatred or intense dislike, jealousy, envy – all disrupt the energy flow through the body, affect the heart, the immune system, digestion, production of hormones, and so on. Even mainstream medicine, although it knows very little about how the ego operates yet, is beginning to recognize the connection between negative emotional states and physical disease. An emotion that does harm to the body also infects the people you come in contact with and indirectly, through a process of chain reaction, countless others you never meet. There is a generic term for all negative emotions: unhappiness.”

“Concentrate on the abundance you do have. Make it solid and real by acknowledging it. It’s easy to overlook the many things we are granted – oxygen, the blood rushing through our veins, the food we eat; the people we know, the love we have for our friends and family, the companionship of animals and nature; the warmth of the sun; the sustenance of water, the air, and the earth. All these things are around us; they’re our “temple,” so to speak. We have to be grateful for what we have.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, October 30th, 2018 by Marianne Williamson in THE GIFT OF CHANGE

“Enlightenment is not a learning but an unlearning, a letting go of all the fears we’ve gathered as we’ve walked the path of life. As taught in A Course in Miracles, “miracles are everyone’s right, but purification is necessary first.” Purification is the process by which everything but love dissolves from our mind. As we drop the layers of fear and illusion that have hardened around our psyches, we are left with the love with which we were endowed at our creation.

Just as embryonic cells are programmed to develop into a baby, each of us is programmed to develop a more magnificent life. An invisible hand guides the embryo and guides you and me as well. But unlike the embryo, you and I can refuse it. God didn’t create us as babies and then just dump us here and say, “Okay, kid, now you’re on your own.” But how do we know that, if we’re not taught to listen to our hearts? How can we “go with the flow” if we don’t know such a flow exists? And so we keep going around saying “No” to life and then wondering why life seems to be saying “No” to us.”

“All physical, or formed, things come from the unformed, or non-physical, realm. What brings that energy here and assembles it for us is the overarching principle of the Universe in which we live. Our essence is desire, or the desire to give and receive; our essence is love, attraction, and receptivity. We derive our essence from our Creator; the essence of that which created us appears to be that of love and of giving. You need only “Ask and ye shall receive.” The great ones remind us, “You have not because you ask not.”

We are here as the result of thought; and we receive all things as the result of thought. Some people call this prayer; but regardless of what you call it, it simply is. And it is simple. The answers to our prayers are the things we see and experience – all of them. If you are physically aware of it, it is the answer to a prayer. The answers to prayers are all we know. We just don’t know that we know.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, October 26th, 2018 by Deepak Chopra in AGELESS BODY, TIMELESS MIND

“Know that the world “out there” reflects your reality “in here.” The people you react to most strongly, whether with love or hate, are projections of your inner world. What you most hate is what you most deny in yourself. What you most love is what you most wish for in yourself. Use the mirror of relationships to guide your evolution. The goal is total self-knowledge. When you achieve that, what you most want will automatically be there, and what you most dislike will disappear.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, October 25th, 2018 by Rhonda Byrne in THE SECRET

“In his book The Master Key System, Charles Haanel claims that there is an affirmation that incorporates every single thing any human being can want, and that this affirmation will bring about harmonious conditions to all things. He adds, “The reason for this is because the affirmation is in strict accordance with the Truth, and when Truth appears every form of error or discord must necessarily disappear.” The affirmation is this:

I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.”

If it sounds like work to drag what you want out of the invisible and into the visible, try this shortcut: see what you want as absolute fact. This will manifest what you want with the speed of light. The second you ask, it is fact in the Universal spiritual field, and that field is all that exists. When you conceive something in your mind, know it is a fact, and that there can be no question about its manifestation.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, October 24th, 2018 by Stuart Wilde in AFFIRMATIONS

“The mind gets bogged down by its expectations. It decides when or where something is to happen and then becomes frustrated if things do not work out. Yet all of life is guesswork. The mind extrapolates from past experience and assumes that future events will conform to that pattern. But life often presents us with different circumstances. When something unexpected happens, do not punish yourself. It is impossible to guess right all the time. The animals in the forest do not worry about what will happen; they just live life. Once you accept things as they come and stop putting pressure on yourself, your life will grow calm. In that calm your power will grow.”

“Living under the direction of Divine Power requires that we surrender all personal control and take a deliberate leap of faith, suspending our need for guarantees of any kind. This will be far easier if we are committed, honest, and faithful to what is important to our hearts and do not expect anyone else to take care of us. When we show up fully to our heart’s desire and do everything possible to bring our heads and feet into alignment with our heart, then the Universe also commits. But until we do our part, the Universe can’t help. When we direct our will fully toward what lies in our heart, the Universe will meet us halfway, leading us to victory.”
