BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, April 1st, 2020 by Dean Shrock in WHY LOVE HEALS

“What does it mean to know that you are the vibration of God? For one, if God has no limits, then we have no limits. We say that God can heal. In fact what can God not do? We also say that God is love, which means that this is what we are too if we are one with God.

Is it surprising at all, then, that love heals? Or that we can heal ourselves by aligning ourselves with our true essence? This is a major premise of spiritual traditions.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, March 31st, 2020 by Pete Koerner in THE BELIEF FORMULA

“The point of Jesus’ ministry wasn’t, Hey! Look what YOU can do! All of you – you were all born with this power.” He wasn’t trying to impress people with parlor tricks; he was educating them to the Way it is really supposed to be – the Way nature really works. If it can be done, it can be done; you either believe that or you don’t. You can change any situation by changing your mind. Spend your days thinking about the good things in life – the things that make you happy – and you will know joy. Spend your days doing those things you love and prosperity will follow. You will see the things in your life you wish to see. This is the recipe for right living.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, March 30th, 2020 by Alan Cohen in DARE TO BE YOURSELF

“Imagine that every thought you think, every word you utter, and every feeling you experience will automatically magnetize more of the same. Metaphysical teachers urge us to speak of only those conditions we want to see manifested, and to avoid declaring anything that we do not wish to bring into our life. Our words have power. (“In the beginning was the Word.” Speak loving words and attract love. Speak of success and attract prosperity. Speak of healing and lift the world out of sorrow and into the light.

Imagine that you can create the kind of life you want to live by putting yourself into the frame of mind as if you are already living it. As a co-creator with God, you have the tools and the opportunity to make of your life what you wish. The power is in your hands. Do with it as you will. Be a force for love, and you will be empowered by every noble thought in the universe.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, March 27th, 2020 by Jeff Maziarek in SPIRITUALITY SIMPLIFIED

“As this passage from Conversations with God, Book 1 relates, it is especially important that we not use the words “I AM” in front of anything that we don’t want to experience:

“I AM is the strongest creative statement in the Universe. Whatever you think, whatever you say, after the words “I AM” sets into motion those experiences, calls them forth, brings them to you. There is no other way the Universe knows how to work. There is no other route it knows to take. The Universe responds to “I AM” as would a genie in a bottle”

This is a very powerful admonition, for when you stop to reflect on it for a moment, you realize that in normal day-to-day speech it is quite common for all of us to use “I AM” in some very negative ways. For example, how many times have you heard someone say, “I am depressed, or I am angry, or I am just a klutz,” or something similar?

If you are a typical person, it is likely that you’ve heard or said these types of statements perhaps hundreds of times. In my own case, I commonly used such declarations throughout much of my life until I read Conversations with God, Book 1 and came across that passage. Since that discovery, I have become far more judicious about how I use the “I AM” statement in my daily self-talk, and in my conversations with others as well.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, March 26th, 2020 by Misa Hopkins in THE ROOT OF ALL HEALING

“Mother Earth, by her very nature, through her rhythms, teaches you how to live in more harmonious ways. Being in nature helps you put your life into perspective so you can experience a softer, gentler view toward yourself and others. Notice how problems seem more manageable after you take a good walk, hike or run outdoors. Your endorphins are up, hopefully you have been breathing good air, and you have been allowing yourself to receive nourishment from the beauty of the outdoors.

A walk through a rose garden can lift your spirits within minutes as you enjoy the intoxicating scent of the flowers. Take a cup of tea outside and let the breeze tickle your hair. Notice how quickly you rest into the moment when you leave your demanding world for even a few minutes and breathe with nature. After being in nature you may find yourself in a marvelous state of being that is simultaneously relaxed and energized, and therefore, in a much better frame of mind to address the daily challenges to find harmonious solutions.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 by Will Murtha in DYING FOR A CHANGE

Will Murtha: When I haul myself out of bed every day, I see the whole process of life as one big fight. In my present sales environment, I either get there first for the order, or I miss out and lose. We all have to fight for what we have achieved. We must all struggle for what we have. That’s what life is about, isn’t it? Fighting for what you believe. Fighting for what you want.

Voice of Higher Presence: What if I told you that fighting for everything isn’t necessary? There is always enough in the world. There are always enough sales orders, food, housing and clothing. There’s an abundance of water, shelter, love and compassion. The question is never about whether there is enough. It is about whether people want to share what they hoard. Please do not make the mistake of believing that life should be one constant fight and battle from birth till death. When life is approached in that way, it will be empty of the joy you are so desperately seeking in the world. And, please, do not confuse passion with fighting. They are direct opposites. One leads you to disconnect from both your heartfelt dreams and other people. The other leads you, wonderfully, to a place of fulfillment. A place where you discover what it means to truly be a human being. Passion leads to freedom. Fighting leaves you imprisoned.”

William L. Murtha, in “Dying for a Change”

“While each thought is a prayer of sorts, and will be acted on in some way; we can effectively manage our energy and direct more of it in the direction of those thoughts that would bring the most beneficial effects into our lives. If we are thinking anyway, why not think creatively instead of destructively. Even when negative thoughts arise, there is no reason that we must focus on them. If we simply let them go, they will be replaced with new thoughts. If we focus our energies on positive thoughts, they will ultimately become our dominate thought patterns. If we achieve a state where the only thoughts we ever experienced were positive, or good, thoughts, then these are the things we will find filling our lives.”

“Why can’t we accept the fact that positive living is the natural way of life? For one thing, orthodox religion has told us something different, which means that we may have to do some deprogramming on ourselves. We have to move past the false teachings that tell us we’re a race of damned and doomed cosmic misfits who played with a garden snake, then learned a thousand years later that the only antidote, the only salvation, was a vicarious blood sacrifice. That notion didn’t come from Jesus.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, March 20th, 2020 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in REAL MAGIC

Study the paradox, “You can never get enough of what you don’t want.” Keep this paradoxical statement uppermost in your mind as you prepare yourself to experience the miracles of real magic…The answer to getting to the point of not craving what is poison to us is to understand what we mean by a want.

There is an ancient Zen saying that goes like this: “When you seek it, you cannot find it.” That which you crave sends an unwritten, unspoken, but nevertheless real message to you, something like: “I am incomplete without that which I crave. If I get it, I will be more whole, more complete.” But this incompleteness is an illusion. Since you already are it all, you truly do not need anything else to complete yourself. When you truly know this, your wants disappear and you are able to do nicely without that which you don’t want but mysteriously keep craving. This is not to say that you will simply be like a mindless feather blowing haphazardly in the wind without any direction. However, you will be free from the insanity of vigorously pursuing that which you don’t want and which is, in some way, damaging you.”

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “Real Magic”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, March 19th, 2020 by Arnold Patent in YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL

“Society teaches us that time occurs three stages: the past, the present, and the future. In fact, there is only one time that is real – the present. The past is gone, it no longer exists. The future is yet to occur. Only the present moment ever really exists. What we believe at any given time creates our experience at that moment.

Learning to be totally in the present is a skill that requires constant practice. We must continually remind ourselves that whatever we are presently experiencing is unique. It never happened before. It will never happen again. We are free to see it differently than we ever saw it before.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, March 18th, 2020 by Neale Donald Walsch in CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD, BOOK 3

“All of your life you have been told that God created you. I come now to tell you this: You are creating God. That is a massive rearrangement of your understanding. I know. And yet it is a necessary one if you are to go about the true work for which you came. This is holy work We are up to you and I. This is sacred ground We walk. This is The Path.

In every moment God expresses Himself in, as, and through you. You are always at choice as to how God will be created now, and She will never take that choice from you, nor will She punish you for making the “wrong” choice. Yet you are not without guidance in these matters, nor will you ever be. Built into you is an internal guidance system that shows you the way home. This is the voice that speaks to you always of your highest choice, that places before you your grandest vision. All you need do is heed that voice, and not abandon the vision.”

“Joseph Murphy and Ian McMahan, in The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, describe several additional methods of “affirmative prayer.” Among these methods is what is referred to as the “passing-over technique,” in which you simply assign your desire to your subconscious mind. This method is very effective and can be used to achieve anything you can imagine.

The passing-over technique works in the same way as when you tell yourself what time you would like to wake-up in the morning, and you do – without an alarm clock. Likewise, this phenomenon is the reason so many people, before going to sleep, write down questions they would like answers to and keep a pad by the bedside for when they wake-up with the answer. Use it. Experiment with it. Play with it. Ask for whatever you want, but be sure you truly want what you ask for before you ask.”

PONDER on THIS for Monday, March 16th, 2020 by Vadim Zeland in REALITY TRANSURFING I-V

“Don’t let information about catastrophes/disasters get to you, do not become interested in them, do not live through them emotionally, as if they have happened to you, do not discuss them. Basically, let any information concerning these things pass you by. Note the difference: don’t avoid information just don’t let it get to you.

When you are against something, or you really don’t want it, or express aversion to it, you are actively emanating energy on the frequency of what you want to avoid. Not letting something get to you means to ignore it, not to react to any negative information on the subject. Just shift your attention away.”

“As an affirmation that you will listen to your heart, in the sense of the promptings of Spirit, try this: Place your finger on your pulse several times a day, and as you hear your heart beating, pause to think about the spaces between the beats. Focus on them. The pauses are what death sounds like. The sound of the beat is what life sounds like to us humans. In taking a moment to listen to your heart, you are affirming that you will listen and act on its promptings. It’s cool that we even have a heart. Try to love it.”

“Please do not cast blame on yourself…To heap regret and recrimination on yourself misses the entire point of what it means to be human. We all fail at one time or another. We all fall short of our own teachings and beliefs. We all make mistakes. That is because we are all human. Know that you are normal to fall short of your own grand vision, and you will inherit a valuable life lesson. That’s what life is for. It creates a framework for us so that we can learn from our mistakes. Of course, there are no mistakes if we use these experiences wisely. Every mistake carries within it the seed of true wisdom. The mistake is that you give yourself a hard time over it. The mistake is that you don’t learn from your mistakes. The mistake is that you let fear stop you from trying to be more. If you do not fail, then you have not tried.”
