BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, May 29th, 2015 by Neale Donald Walsch in THE NEW REVELATIONS

“God’s direct revelations ended long ago, your religions agree. Only old sacred books contain divine revelation. Most people can accept that God’s great truths have come TO humans THROUGH humans. They simply cannot accept that this could be true of humans living today. This is how you think. This is how you have it constructed.

If it’s old, it’s worthy; if it’s new, it’s unworthy.
If it’s old, it’s true; if it’s new, it’s false.
If it’s old, it’s right; if it’s new, it’s wrong.
If it’s old, it’s good; if it’s new, it’s bad.

This peculiar mindset is what makes progress on your planet so difficult, and evolution so time-consuming. What complicates all of this is that, as you have constructed it, this mindset applies only to things – that is, inanimate objects – and to ideas. Ironically, when it comes to PEOPLE you have it constructed the other way around.

If it’s new, it’s worthy; if it’s old, it’s unworthy.  Thus, your society dismisses out of hand some of the brightest new ideas and some of the wisest old people.”

God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, in “The New Revelations”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, May 28th, 2015 by Richard A. Singer in YOUR DAILY WALK WITH THE GREAT MINDS

“You may have noticed throughout your journey of life that to simply satisfy yourself only offers temporary pleasure, then you are back to the same place you started. This temporary sensory pleasure quickly fades into the distance and leaves us with that endless void within, that we were attempting to fill. Genuine pleasure and fulfillment of the void comes from one thing in life and that is to pursue your inner purpose and passionately do everything in your power to achieve this goal. A human being that possesses a genuine purpose in life will forever feel worthy and committed to creating meaning in the Universe.”

PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, May 27th, 2015 by Russell Kyle in AWAKENED LIVING

“Many times, without knowing, when resisting reality or change, we resist the very thing working in our highest direction. Because of our judgments or preconceived ideas on what is best for us, or what works for us, we unknowingly push all else aside. Everything that doesn’t seem to fit into our “What’s best for me” mold is rejected and pushed aside. We leave no room for anything new, fresh or different. We leave no room for even that which we already have to expand or grow. We stunt our growth by choosing to hold on to our old beliefs and ways of what we think is best for us and best for others.

We must let go of these beliefs behind our thinking in order to allow change. We continually grow, and awaken to life, as we continually let go of our old points of view, making room for new ones, from old ways of doing things to new ones. The let go is to set aside the hard-headedness, fears, convictions, and pride, releasing blame and the struggle to control, thus making room for a new and a more satisfying way of experiencing life. Letting go is to stop resisting all, to become flexible, open-minded, and teachable.”

“Working for money makes money our boss, working for love makes love our boss. Thinking that you are working to make money is not correct. Money is supposed to be working for us so we can use it in our service to God and others. Only the federal government is in the business of printing money, and only moneychangers (the bankers) are in the business of using money as a product. Saying that we are going to work to make money is not the best way to think about our work. We are children of God engaged in the family business, which is working for the welfare of others – helping others to be happy, healthy, and prosperous. There is nothing right or wrong with having money; money is neither good nor bad, it just is. Money does not create or solve problems; we do.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, May 25th, 2015 by Michael Tamura in YOU ARE THE ANSWER

“When we practice anything, we tend to seek proof of our progress. “Are we there yet? How far have we come?” In order to do so, we may seek out others we respect and compare our experiences with theirs. Unless we keep our perspective and surrender our judgments, however, we can invalidate ourselves constantly because we haven’t yet “seen the light,” “felt the overwhelming bliss of existence,” or “cured ourselves of an illness.”

Do not get trapped in measuring your spiritual attainment or progress by certain dramatic experiences. Instead know that the true measure of your evolvement is in how much you are able to recognize the essence, the truth of Divinity in everything, everyone, and in EVERY experience.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, May 22nd, 2015 by Stuart Wilde in SILENT POWER

“Start to design your life so that you don’t require things from others. Try to need only those things you can get yourself. And don’t suck on people emotionally or intellectually. When you lean psychologically or emotionally on people or toward them, its a sure sign of insecurity. It makes others feel uncomfortable. They resent the weight you are laying on them, and they will react by denying you. They don’t like your self-indulgence, and your insecurity reminds them of their own vulnerability; it rattles them.

Thus, an important step in “silent power” is DON’T LEAN. It’s obvious, but most don’t know it. When you are frantic for people, your needs have an air of desperation – they weaken you and push things away from you.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, May 21st, 2015 by Cherie Carter-Scott in IF LIFE IS A GAME, THESE ARE THE RULES

“Pleasure is the physical manifestation of joy. Our body teaches you pleasure through your five senses. When you indulge in any spontaneous behavior or physical sensation that unlocks the joy stored within you, you create space in your consciousness for pleasure.
Your body can be one of the greatest sources of pleasure when you open your five senses fully and experience the physical wonder of being alive. Pleasure can come in the form of sight, like when you see a magnificent sunset, or taste, like when you eat a favorite food. It can come as a glorious musical sound or the soft touch of a lover. The only secret to learning the lesson of pleasure is to make time and space for it in your life.

How much pleasure will you allow yourself?”

PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, May 20th, 2015 by Russell Kyle in AWAKENED LIVING

“Practice humility. Humility is not to think less of yourself, only to see yourself not greater than anyone else. Humility opens way for Good and truth. Yet on the flip side there is pride, and the truth about pride is that pride lies.

Pride tells us that if we are ourselves then people won’t like who we are and we will be seen as less than others. So we put on the pride mask. Pride lies. In truth there is a sense when someone is not being themselves and it backs people away. When feeling better than or even less than others, pride boils up, pride boasts. It then promises that the other will be impressed by its boasting. Pride lies. In truth others are annoyed and they feel pushed down or maybe less then themselves, and so pride goes to work in them too; the vicious cycle of ego wars and us as our ego’s puppets.

On the other hand humility reminds us that we have nothing to prove or show off, in fact humility only wants to lift and love others. People are attracted to this. We all can sense when someone is being there genuine selves; we are drawn and comfortable around these people. Our humility can tame the pride in another, and with all pride out of a relationship the relationship is divine.

Within ourselves humility states to oneself that I have much to learn. Humility is teachable and open, light, and easy. It is soft spoken and kind. It is the open door to our soul. Practice humility.”

“Become familiar with your beliefs about yourself and learn how it is that they influence you. What choices do you make as a result of them? How do they influence your well-being? How entangled are you by your fears, your relationships, your life in general? Remember the only firm conviction worth having is the determination to understand your own makeup. Learn how you have wired yourself, and determine to break free from the host of knee-jerk reactions we all refer to as a personality.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, May 18th, 2015 by Deepak Chopra in CREATING AFFLUENCE

“A truly wealthy person’s attention is never focused on money alone. Moreover, a wealthy person never has money concerns. You may have millions of dollars in the bank, but if you think all the time about money, if you have concern about it, if you worry about it – about getting more, about not having enough, about losing it – then irrespective of the dollar amount you possess, you are poor.

As Oscar Wilde once said, “There is only one class of people that think more about money than the rich, and that is the poor.  In fact, the poor can think of nothing else.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, May 15th, 2015 by Stuart Wilde in INFINITE SELF

“It’s important to grasp, early on, that spiritual growth is not necessarily convenient or comfortable. This is not only because you have to discard an awful lot of your beliefs and definitions – things you hold most sacrosanct – but also because you can’t get to the Infinite Self without traveling back through the psychological and metaphysical reality of who you are, and the memories of what you have done in this lifetime.

Looking at yourself can be uncomfortable. It’s difficult to learn to control the ego and discipline the mind without it reacting. However, it’s a vital part of the journey, and you have to raise your energy gradually, over a period of time. I don’t buy the idea that something or someone is going to descend upon you one day and raise you up – a great guru, Jesus, or some angelic being – that they are going to touch you on the forehead, and suddenly you’ll be elevated to a higher plane. I’m sorry if that contradicts your beliefs, but energy seeks its own level. Even though something or someone can inspire or teach you, in the end the only way you will sustain a higher energy is to create it for yourself.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, May 14th, 2015 by Karol K. Truman in FEELINGS BURIED ALIVE NEVER DIE

“The person who is made to feel that he is continually making mistakes, will then automatically embrace the feeling of guilt for being, as he sees it, so dumb and stupid. The feeling of guilt is then added to his negative beliefs about himself and thus become further validation of his inadequacies and a sad, depreciating and motivating factor in his life. One incorrect perception can lead to another, and another, and another, until the majority of the perceptions he has about himself are do distorted that he feels absolutely worthless.

Remember, even if the perception is distorted and untrue, the mind-body still believes it to be true. When a feeling or thought validates what we already believe to be true, the emotion accompanying the validation gathers energy and becomes more and more indelibly fixed, rooted and ingrained in us. And this, in turn is what profoundly governs our daily beliefs, attitudes and actions from then on.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, May 13th, 2015 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in YOU’LL SEE IT WHEN YOU BELIEVE IT

“Try viewing everyone who comes into your life as a teacher. See every other person as the part of you that is ready to grow. In relationships, it is not an accident that sustaining partnerships are combinations of opposites. We often love someone who represents an underdeveloped part of ourselves. Instead of judging others as people who should or should not be behaving in certain ways, see them as reflecting a part of you and ask yourself what it is you are ready to learn from them.

Love the seemingly opposites in your world, treasure their way of being as a gift to you. And remember, those who seem to cause you the most anguish are those who remind you of what you feel is either lacking or wanting in yourself. If you did not react at all, it would mean that you were totally indifferent. The fact that you do react, while preferring indifference, means there is something inside you that gets hooked when you encounter that provocative behavior. It is your learning situation, not their problem.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, May 12th, 2015 by Mark Nepo in THE BOOK OF AWAKENING

“We easily confuse plans with planning, dreams with dreaming, and love with loving. The wisdom waiting within…is that we live like hungry fishermen: sewing and casting our nets, though we never really know what they will catch, never really know what will feed us until it is brought aboard. So, as Buddhists say, to be a good fisherman you must detach yourself from the dream of the fish. This makes whatever is caught or found a treasure…Certainly, there are times we need to anticipate what is coming, and times we need to be spontaneous. But too much is made of choosing either way. Plans are kindling to every fire, and no two fires are the same. We just need their heat and light.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, May 11th, 2015 by Neale Donald Walsch in THE NEW REVELATIONS

“The reasons humans have hung so tenaciously to their old beliefs is that they do not want to dishonor those beliefs by rejecting them completely, out of hand. They think that this is the choice they have: Reject the old or accept the old, totally. Yet that is not the only choice you have. You can review the old and see what parts of the old no longer work. You can expand the old to make some parts of the old work better. You can add to the old to make some parts of your belief system new.

Transcending current beliefs is NOT an outright rejection of them; it is an “adding” to them. Now that you have more information that you can add to what you presently believe, you can enlarge your beliefs – not completely reject them, ENLARGE them – and move on with your lives in a new way. A way that works.”
