PONDER on THIS for Thursday, September 29th, 2016 by Heather Elliott in SAME SHIT, DIFFERENT DAY

“Reality is not just happening in your mind – you are actually creating the physical world that matches those thoughts. Because we fell asleep and became unconscious to our role in creating our lives and the truth about how it all works, we fell victim to them. Waking up to the truth will set us free! Your mind is the FILM SCRIPT from which your reality emerges.

Think of your mind like the film in a movie projector. And then think of your observer self – the part of you paying attention to your world – as the projector itself. It is the action of being alive in the world that makes you the observer and, whether you acknowledge it or not, MIND is the film script that it is showing in the theatre of your life. You are, indeed, the most fabulous reality TV show playing – and once you really get this idea, life becomes a whole lot more interesting.

What is Truth, then? Whatever you decide it is!”

Heather Elliott, in “Same Shit, Different Day”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, September 28th, 2016 by David R. Hawkins in POWER VS. FORCE

“Traditional medicine generally holds that stress is the cause of many human disorders and illnesses. The problem with this diagnosis is that it doesn’t accurately address the source of the stress. It looks to blame external circumstances, without realizing that all stress is internally generated by one’s attitudes. I must emphasize again that it isn’t life’s events, but one’s reactions to them, that activates the symptoms of stress. As we’ve already discovered, a divorce can bring about agony or relief; and challenges on the job can result in stimulation or anxiety, depending on whether one’s supervisor is perceived to be a teacher or an ogre.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, September 27th, 2016 by Wayne W. Dyer in THERE’S A SPIRITUAL SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM

“There is a powerful line in A Course in Miracles which reminds me of this lesson: “It takes great learning to understand that all things, events, encounters, and circumstances are helpful.” Great learning is an understatement! It takes great faith and courage to begin to view our lives in this way.

How strongly do you desire to truly know, beyond a doubt, that every problem you experience including the very worst thing in your life, actually contains the seeds of the best thing? We can learn to view every crisis as an opportunity, which wouldn’t necessarily make life easier, but would make it more satisfying. We would never be able to view anything as a negative occurrence, because we’d see everything as useful information.”

“Despair is an attitude, experienced in the mind. It is a way of looking at a life situation and feeling hopeless. There is no despair in the world. You cannot bring home a bucket of despair, there are only people thinking despairing thoughts. This is a crucial point to understand. There may be deplorable circumstances that exist in your life and in the lives of others yet in and of themselves they are just plain circumstances, the facts of a life. Despair itself is a mental process that sizes up and views a situation as awful. When you just recognize despair as being a mental attitude you begin a process of bringing hope to the inner vision of despair and dissolving it.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, September 23rd, 2016 by Sanaya Roman in LIVING WITH JOY

“Having inner peace means committing to letting go of self-criticism and self-doubt. Everything other people say to you about yourself is a reflection of a voice within you. What other people say to you also reflects how they speak to themselves. If you find people critical, first ask, is there a part of you that is criticizing yourself?

As you let go of that self-criticism, you will experience less criticism from others. Remember also that what people say to you is a reflection of who they are and how they see the world. They may criticize you because they are critical of themselves. See their actions and words as a statement of their beliefs and learn to remain calm and centered.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, September 22nd, 2016 by Lynn Grabhorn in EXCUSE ME, YOUR LIFE IS WAITING

“Whatever you include in your vibration for sixteen seconds or longer is on its way to you, whether you like it or not. So when you’re talking about all the things you don’t want, and flowing out only sixteen seconds of feeling each time you talk about one of them, that thing has now become a part of you, part of your everyday vibration. Pretty soon you’re living it…talking about it…complaining about it…stewing over it…and making it an even stronger match to your daily vibration than it was in the first place. You are vibrating with the very thing you do not want.

Now that thing can’t leave you. It is part of you. No matter how much you keep grumbling over it or worrying about it, it cannot leave! It is now included within your everyday vibration. And the more you live it, focus on it, and brood over it, the stronger your vibration becomes to match and hold this think you want so badly to get rid of. ”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, September 21st, 2016 by Eric Butterworth in DISCOVER THE POWER WITHIN YOU

“The story is told of a precocious young lad standing on a street corner. A minister, passing by, stopped for a moment to play his role. Patting the lad on the head he said, “Sonny boy, who made you?”’ The young fellow looked up and said, somewhat impatiently, “Well, to tell you the truth sir, I ain’t done yet.”

And that is the Truth about you. You are not done yet. No matter what may be the level of your experiences at the moment, you are not done yet. There is more in you. And the experience itself is an opportunity to grow through as you go through the challenge.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, September 20th, 2016 by Pete Koerner in THE BELIEF FORMULA

“Heroes are born when fear dies. We all seem to recognize when someone has transcended, even if for just a moment, the limitations of their beliefs of mortality and weakness. We admire these individuals, for they remind us of our transcendent nature. We are comforted somehow to know that we all possess such capacity for greatness and that ours, too, will be waiting on us when we need it most. This greatness is real, we have seen it in all types of humans, but the idea that it is waiting for you is misleading. Greatness waits for no person, but falls on he who seeks it.

Greatness is only waiting for you to invite it in, believing, and allow what comes. When I speak of greatness, I am speaking of fulfillment in any endeavor you choose with your heart. I am speaking of surrendering to the heart and following wherever it may lead you. I am speaking of letting go of fear and replacing it with thoughts of faith, gratitude, trust, and courage; for it is these thoughts that will bring these things into your life.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, September 19th, 2016 by Neale Donald Walsch in FRIENDSHIP WITH GOD

“There is no time that you are ever alone. I am always with you, and you are always with Me. That’s number one. And it’s an important place to begin, because it changes everything. If you think you are really alone, it could be devastating. Just the thought of total aloneness itself, without anything else going on, could be devastating. That’s because the very nature of the soul is unity and Oneness with All That Is, and if it appears that there is nothing and no one else, then an individual could feel just that – individual, and not One with anything else at all. And that would be devastating, because it violates your deepest sense of Who You Are.”

“Judgment is placing a value system on your experiences. Judgments come from your perceptions of experiences. An experience is an experience; that is all it is. It is simply a happening, an event. However, your perception of the experience empowers it. If you perceive an experience to be enriching, positive, and one that enhances the quality of your life, then you are happy and therefore will judge (value) the experience as good.

Likewise, if you perceive the same experience to threaten your safety in any way, then fear will rise up, and the perception will begin to limit you. You will then judge (value) the experience as bad. It does not take much thought to realize you place values (judgments) on many of your experiences. Besides judging your personal experiences, you also judge other people, events, situations, and circumstances that appear not to directly affect you.

The perceptions of your experiences dictate how you live and the prison you have created for yourself. As long as you have a need to judge, you shall always be imprisoned. Every time you hold a judgment of an experience, a person, or any event, you feed energy that keeps the imprisonment in place not only for yourself, but also for the particular arena of the experience, the person or the situation.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, September 15th, 2016 by Edwin Harkness Spina in MYSTIC SECRETS REVEALED

“Early in life, you may have been led to believe that it’s not good to change your mind. There are numerous words with negative connotations associated with those who do change their minds: fickle, indecisive, hesitant, unsure, wavering, erratic, or wishy-washy. You’d much prefer to be known as steadfast, decisive, confident and sure…right?

Skilled manipulators used this near-universal conditioning against you every day. For example, has a salesman ever asked you, “Are you in a position to make a decision today?” Once you agree to this proposition, you’ll feel pressure to “make a decision today,” and buy the product, even if you have reservations. After all, if you don’t buy, you’d likely be considered “indecisive” by either the salesman or yo own self-doubting ego.

But this is not what changing your mind is all about. Changing your mind means that after thinking about the subject or after gathering more complete information, you came to a different conclusion – a better and more informed decision. This is not being indecisive. It’s being logical, prudent and wise.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, September 14th, 2016 by Alan Cohen in WHY YOUR LIFE SUCKS AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

“Quit talking about disasters at the water cooler. Don’t read the newspaper or watch the news while you are eating. What you think and feel while you eat profoundly impacts your digestion and health. If you wake up to a clock radio, set it for a time other than the hour or half-hour, so you awake to music rather than who got squashed overnight.

Don’t watch the news just before you go to sleep. (And you wonder why you aren’t sleeping well?) The thoughts and feelings in which you immerse yourself before you retire set the stage for your dreams, how well you rest, and how refreshed you feel when you awaken. The last thought you think before you go to sleep is the one that ruminates in your subconscious throughout the night and emerges as the first thought you think when you wake up – so make it a good one.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, September 13th, 2016 by Neale Donald Walsch in CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD BOOK 1

“There is no judgment in what you call the afterlife. You will not even be allowed to judge yourself (for you would surely give yourself a low score given how judgmental and unforgiving you are with yourself in this life). No, there is no accounting, one giving “thumbs-up” or “thumbs-down.” Only humans are judgmental, and because you are, you assume that I must be. Yet I am not – and that is a great truth you cannot accept.

Nonetheless, while there will be no judgment in the afterlife, there will be opportunity to look again at all you have thought, said, and done here, and to decide if that is what you would choose again, based on Who You Say You Are, and Who You Want to Be.”

“You may not have enough actual food to feed everyone in the world but you certainly have some form of nourishment to share with each person you meet. You may be much more capable of nourishing another’s soul hunger than cooking up a bowl of soup, or you may be able to do both. You may be naturally inclined to tend to the emotional needs of others rather than explain everything to the fulfillment of their intellect.

Even if you cannot readily provide physical shelter to others, you may have ample emotional shelter of your trust and reassurance to offer them. You can cover a naked person with the shirt off your back or you can give much needed support to one who has just experienced humiliation and is feeling totally exposed. You may be able to bring hope to a prison inmate or you may have the tools to help liberate people who are stuck in the prison of their habits, relationships or jobs. When you don’t have money to share, you might have the time. Every day, Life within each of us experiences some from of hunger, thirst, alienation, exposure, illness or incarceration. Surely, we can each find one way or another to share our abundance with life.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, September 9th, 2016 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in YOU’LL SEE IT WHEN YOU BELIEVE IT

“Work each day to clear yourself of the two factors that do the most to inhibit your personal transformation: negativity and judgment.

The more negative your thoughts, the more likely you are to look exclusively at the physical side of you, and to behave in such a way as to destroy your body as well. Every negative thought is an inhibitor to personal transformation. It keeps you clogged up just as cholesterol clogs up an artery. When you are filled with negativity, you are kept from attaining higher and more bountiful levels of happiness.

The inclination to judge others also serves as a gigantic inhibitor of your personal transformation. When you judge another person, you do not define him or her, you define yourself. Your judgment of another says nothing at all about that person; it only says that you need to judge the person in the way that you are doing. So you are saying more about yourself than about the other.”
