BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, February 27th, 2017 by Lynn Grabhorn in EXCUSE ME, YOUR LIFE IS WAITING

“We have been taught, and therefore have believed that we live at the mercy of others, or fate, or luck, or chance; certainly that is what most people on this planet live by. But once you start to see the Law of Attraction in operation, you ultimately come to understand that there is no such thing as a victim; never has been, never will be.

There is no good luck, bad luck, good fortune, or coincidence. There is no destiny, fate, or providence, There is not a big judge in the sky keeping score of how right or wrong you’ve been. There is no karma from past lives nor penance. That’s all victim stuff. And there is not a victim among us, only cocreators in thought and feeling, powerful magnets attracting like bees to honey the matching frequency of our ever-flowing vibrations.”

Lynn Grabhorn, in “Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, February 24th, 2017 by Deepak Chopra in THE SEVEN SPIRITUAL LAWS OF SUCCESS

“Every relationship is one of give and take. Giving engenders receiving, and receiving engenders giving. What goes up must come down; what goes out must come back. In reality, receiving is the same thing as giving, because giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And if you stop the flow of either, you interfere with nature’s intelligence.

In every seed is the promise of thousands of forests. But the seed must not be hoarded; it must give its intelligence to the fertile ground. Through it’s giving, its unseen energy flows into material manifestation.

The more you give, the more you will receive, because you will keep the abundance of the universe circulating in your life.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, February 23rd, 2017 by Sanaya Roman in SPIRITUAL GROWTH

“The principle of allowing is very important. You allow things into your life easily and effortlessly all the time. There are any things you think you deserve, and you do not think twice about having them. For instance, you may have all the food you want, good friends, respect and support from others and many creative ideas. You can increase the good you bring into your life by learning how to allow yourself to have what you want.

Although you easily allow abundance into some areas of your life, there are other things you think you do not deserve or must work hard for. You deserve the greatest things you can imagine just as much as you deserve all the smaller things you so easily allow into your life. You do not have to do anything to “deserve” your higher good. You are a good and worthy person. People who have abundance, loving relationships, and happiness are not more deserving or better than you. They simply allow more good things to come into their lives.”

“Intuition is the ability to know without words, to sense the truth without explanations. Intuition operates beyond time and space; it is a link to your higher self. Intuition is not bound by the physical body. It operates knowing that past, present and future are simultaneous. It takes the desires of your conscious mind, goes out into the future and finds ways for you to have them. It speaks to you through insights, revelations and urge…To bridge the gap between intellect and intuition, use the heart energy of trust and faith. Intuition will often give you answers that do not seem logical, yet the answers work if you trust them and act upon them.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, February 21st, 2017 by Paul Ferrini in THE SILENCE OF THE HEART

“Do not expect your relationship with God to look like anyone else’s or you will sabotage the relationship. God’s presence in your life is totally unique. Your conversation with Her may be verbal or nonverbal, a canvas of colorful shapes or imageless. Don’t try to measure your spirituality by comparing what happens for you with what happens for others. Don’t accept an intermediary between you and God. Reject all gurus and teachers. Don’t accept any concepts of God that come from others. Reject magical thinking. Let go of potions and formulas. Forget what you think you know. Forget what you have been taught. Come to God empty and surrendered. Leave your petitions and agendas behind. Be with Her without expectations. Just be and let Her find you as you are, in your simple essence.”

PONDER on THIS for Monday, February 20th, 2017 by Lynne McTaggert in THE FIELD

“The model suggested by C.D. Braud’s work is of a universe, to some degree, under our control. Our wishes and our intentions create our reality. We might be able to use them to have a happier life, to block unfavorable influences, to keep ourselves enclosed in a protective fence of goodwill. Be careful what you wish for, thought Braud. Each of us has the ability to make it come true.

In his own casual and quiet way, Braud began testing out this idea, using intentions to achieve certain outcomes. It only seemed to work, he discovered, when he used gentle wishing, rather than intense willing or striving. It was like trying to will yourself to sleep: the harder you try, the more you interfere with the process. It seemed to Braud that humans operated on two levels – the hard, motivated striving of the world and the relaxed, passive, receptive world of The Field – and the two seemed incompatible. Over time, when Braud’s desired outcomes seemed to occur more often than expected by chance, he developed a reputation as a “good wisher.”

“Every condition in life exists as a result of agreement. When you feel the emotion of sadness in your body, you might agree that you are indeed sad. With that agreement, you become the sadness. If, instead, you agree that you are only feeling the sadness, you won’t be sad, but just feel sad.

If you also agree that you have a choice to be aware of spirit, you can begin to experience more of the energy of spirit. Then, you could be happy while feeling the sadness. Even though it’s the same sadness, you can agree to relate to it differently. What you agree to completely changes your state of being.”

“Fear will always play a part in your evolutionary process, so get used to it. Do not feel that fear is bad. When you succumb to your fears and allow yourself to buy into them, then you must cycle through them and experience all you feel so that you can overcome them. Begin to say, “I will transmute this fear. I will understand that it is part of the plan. I will understand that it can serve me.” Remember, your power and your ability to create reality through your will ends where your fear begins. And we will tell you – life is meeting fear. Begin to look at the events of your life and how you create them. Understand that you always create them to serve you. You are trained for this. You are coded for this.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 by Stephen Russell in BAREFOOT DOCTOR’S GUIDE TO THE TAO

“Change is a force you have to groove with, not resist. Like a fast and furious monster of epic proportions, it charges headlong into the deep unknown with you clinging to its back. You can’t get off because it’s going too fast. It can’t stop because constant movement is all it knows. Though the course is cyclic, you never seem to get back to the same place twice. The story of your life keeps unfolding and there’s nothing you can do about it, so you might as well surrender now. Give yourself up to the ride and, with the belief that all things work together for the good, say:

“All change is good. All change is good. All change is good. All change is good. All change is good. All change is good. All change is good. All change is good. All change is good.

“Good!”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, February 14th, 2017 by Don Miguel Ruiz in THE VOICE OF KNOWLEDGE

“I love and respect all of God’s creation. How can I say, “God, you have created billions of people and they are not perfect?” For me to say that I am not perfect or that you are not perfect is the greatest insult to God, from my point of view. If we don’t see the perfection, it’s because our attention is focused on the lie, on that image of perfection that we can never be. And how many of us give up trying to be the image of perfection, but in giving up we don’t go as warriors? We just accept that we are failures, that we will never make it, and we blame everything outside of us. “I didn’t make it because nobody helped me – because of this or that or whatever.”

There are hundreds of excuses, but now the self-judgment is even worse than before. When we are still trying to be perfect the judgment is there, but it’s not as bad as when we give up. Then we try to cover our frustration, and say, “I’m okay; this is the kind of life I want,” but we know that we have failed, and we can’t hide what we believe from ourselves. Of course, any time we try to be what we are not, we fail. It’s so difficult to be what we are not, to pretend to be what we are not.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, February 13th, 2017 by Neale Donald Walsch in COMMUNION WITH GOD

“Some people think that things happen for a reason, and so they try to discern what that reason is. Others say that certain things are “a sign”. So they try to understand what the sign is telling them. In one way or another, people try to find meaning in the events and experiences of their lives. Yet the fact is that nothing has any meaning at all. There is no intrinsic truth hidden in the encounters and experiences of life. Who would hide it there? And why?

If it were there for you to discover, wouldn’t it be much more efficient to make it obvious? If God had something to tell you, wouldn’t it be a lot easier (to say nothing of kinder) to simply tell you, rather than make it a mystery that you had to solve?

The fact is, there is no meaning to anything, save the meaning you give it. Life is meaningless. That is difficult for many humans to accept, yet it is My greatest gift. By rendering life meaningless, I give you the opportunity to decide what anything and everything means. Out of your decisions will you define yourself in relationship to anything and everything in life.

This is, in fact, the means by which you experience Who You Choose to Be.”

God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, in “Communion with God”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, February 10th, 2017 by Marianne Williamson in THE GIFT OF CHANGE

“It seems to be that the key to happiness lies in getting over yourself. The happiest times of my life have been when I was more involved in something I was doing for others rather than in something I was doing for myself. For any perception that focuses only on our separate needs will ultimately breed fear, and any perception that focuses on our oneness with others breeds peace. Many people struggle and fail to find peace within themselves because they don’t realize who their ‘self’ is. That is why the ego is so dangerous: it would have us believe that we are separate, when in fact we’re not. We can’t have inner peace unless we feel complete within ourselves, and we can’t feel complete outside our connection with other people.”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, February 9th, 2017 by Polly Campbell in HOW TO LIVE AN AWESOME LIFE

“Just as there can be breathtaking beauty, intense love, and awesome moments even when things feel impossibly difficult and hard and sad, there will be times each day when we need to flex and stretch and adapt to the changes and challenges that are always there. When we do choose resilient attitudes and behaviors and rise up to look the challenge in the eye, we become more skilled. We become better at coping with some of this stuff. It isn’t that the pain or challenge is good in itself – divorce, bankruptcy, loss; no, not so good. But with adversity, we are pushed to learn and grow and adapt simply to survive. We become better at it. When you tap into your resilience, little by little, to move into and through the adversity, you might as well be putting on your superhero caps because there is nothing stronger than you in that moment.”

“There is a big difference between giving and sacrificing. Giving from a heart that is overflowing feels so good. Sacrificing does not feel good. Don’t confuse the two—they are diametrically opposed. One emits a signal of lack and the other emits a signal of more-than-enough. One feels good and one does not feel good. Sacrifice will eventually lead to resentment. Giving from a full heart is one of the most joyous things you can do, and the law of attraction will grab hold of that signal and flood even more into your life. You can feel the difference.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, February 7th, 2017 by Eliza Mada Dalian in IN SEARCH OF THE MIRACULOUS

“Your ego-mind is like the bark of a tree. For a tree to survive and mature it needs the bark to protect it from the outside elements. When the tree has matured and begins to die, its bark starts to peel off. Don’t struggle with the bark and try and pull it off forcibly. As long as the tree is growing, the bark needs to stay attached to the tree. Accept your bark. When it is no longer needed, it will fall off on its own.

Don’t fight the mind with the mind. Look at how your ego stays alive by you needing to be in control. To break your mind’s pattern of needing to stay in control, be a Zorba once in a while. Go ‘”crazy” and risk losing your head by behaving completely differently from the way you would normally behave. This will help you break through your fears that keep you in need of control. To come out of the mind’s struggle and act with maturity and responsibility you must learn to act with awareness.”
