PONDER on THIS for Thursday, July 31st, 2014 by Sanaya Roman in SPIRITUAL GROWTH

“Open to receive and believe you deserve even more than you can imagine yourself having. If you received a check for an enormous sum of money from a friend who wanted to give to you, would you accept it freely? Or would you look for hidden strings? Imagine now that this friend has unlimited wealth and wants to give to you because he or she loves you, and there are no strings attached. Would you accept it? Think of your Higher Self as your loving friend of infinite wealth, waiting to give you everything you are open to receiving. Spiritual growth, love, joy, and abundance are all waiting for you to accept them into your life.

You needn’t feel guilty about receiving everything you want, having your life work, and being happy. Open to receive; know that as you do you are not taking from others, for other people’s Higher Selves are willing to give to them too – as much as they can allow into their lives. Believe that unlimited abundance exists for everyone, for it does. It is waiting only for them to claim it and give it permission to come into their lives.”

 Sanaya Roman, in “Spiritual Growth”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, July 30th, 2014 by Stuart Wilde in THE LITTLE MONEY BIBLE

“Nobody out there is perfect. We’re not trying to compete in the perfection stakes. You can love yourself and be imperfect, as God loves us unconditionally. I really like the image of the water rat, this scruffy little rat sniffles around the edge of muddy river banks. It doesn’t look like much, but the little rat is sitting there on a log by the side of the river, and he is what he is. He isn’t apologizing for being a water rat, but simply stands inside a divinity and a spirituality that is the animal spirit of “water rat.”

You are what you are. You might be an Adonis in the making, or an incredible goddess energy, or you might just be a little water rat who stands in front of the bathroom mirror in the morning and says: I’m a water rat and that’s ok. I don’t have to convince people or act to please them. I don’t have to work to win their affection. I don’t have to pay for them so they will love me, because I love myself. I am what I am. I going to go out today, I’m going to believe in myself, I’m going to be honorable. I’m going to concentrate on people and treat them fairly. I’m going to treat myself fairly, for by nurturing myself, my energy will build and I will become secure. I know that money flows TO security, and away FROM insecurity. So by being more secure, I will prosper.”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, July 29th, 2014 by Donald Altman in THE MINDFULNESS CODE

“Being judgmental is not the same as being discriminating and discerning and not the same as evaluating and analyzing in order to arrive at a decision or to make comparisons. A judgmental mind can be a dangerous thing. It gets stuck in a personal and limited perspective of I-me-mine. Holding people to black-and-white standards leaves little allowance for the quirks that make us who we are. In contrast, a joyful and compassionate mind invites hope and makes life bearable. An innate joy that lives in all of us wants to break out of its seed of separateness and aloneness. The joyful mind is not obsessed with winning or needing to be right. It is more interested in sharing joy and being connected. The compassionate mind reaps joy by giving and spreading joy, even in unlikely and unexpected places.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, July 28th, 2014 by Rich Work in GOD THIS IS A GOOD BOOK!

“Separation creates judgment. You are either a Yankee or a Rebel; you MUST choose one side or the other. These are the rules of separation. However, when you honor one another, you truly understand that these are only choices. Imagine how quickly the world would change if others honored and supported you for the choices you have made. Imagine the blessing you would give others if you honored and supported the choices THEY have made. Yours is a world of choice. Honor your creation, for it is your world. It is the world you have created – and your world can change in a heartbeat when you recognize the perfection within others and honor them for their journey.”

Best of PONDER on THIS for Friday, July 25th, 2014 by Wayne W. Dyer in THERE’S A SPIRITUAL SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM

“Harboring anger and hatred toward anyone guarantees that YOU remain in low energy fields where problems will continue to crop up repeatedly in your life. I suggest that you examine every relationship in which you feel judgmental thoughts of anger and hatred. Replace those thoughts with energies of acceptance, kindness, cheerfulness, and love. You will have to make a personal commitment to, first of all, notice what you are feeling and then exercise your ability to choose to send love.

When your heart becomes pure, your enemy becomes your friend, or even more significantly, your teacher. Your worst enemies are your greatest teachers because they allow you to examine the emotions of anger and revenge and then to transcend them. They give you the exact tools you need to elevate yourself to the spiritual energies that provide your solution.

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, July 24th, 2014 by Don Miguel and Don Jose Ruiz in THE FIFTH AGREEMENT

“You were programmed to deliver a message, and the creation of that message is your greatest art. What is the message? Your life. With that message you create mainly the story of you, and then a story about everything you perceive. You create an entire virtual reality in your mind, and you live in that reality. When you think, you’re thinking in your language; you’re repeating in your mind all those symbols that mean something to you. You’re giving yourself a message, and that message is the truth for you because you believe that it’s the truth.

The story of you is everything that you know about you, and when I say this, I’m talking to you, knowledge, what you believe you are, not to you, the human, what you really are. As you can see, I make a distinction between you and you because one of you is real, and one of you is not real. You, the physical human, are real; you are the truth. You, knowledge – you’re not real; you’re virtual. You only exist because of the agreements you made with yourself and with the other humans around you. You, knowledge, come from the symbols you hear in your head, from all the opinions of the people you love, the people you don’t love, the people you know, and mostly the people you’ll never know.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014 by Stuart Wilde in WHISPERING WINDS OF CHANGE

“If you’re surrounded by a bunch of incredibly negative, rather grim people, sometimes called relatives, or perhaps friends or co-workers, whatever – rather than fighting that ugliness around you and seeing it as misfortune, LOVE IT.

Look at the people, look at your job, your circumstances, the family, your home, and say – Thank you God, thank you for sending me these teachers. They are driving me crackers, yet what they’re teaching me is not to react. They strengthen me by teaching me to transmute negative energy into positive energy. Using these people, I will convert irritation, hatred, and reaction into at least a neutral energy of passivity, or if possible, love.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in REAL MAGIC

“To befriend and cultivate your intuition, treat those inner proddings that crop up in your mind as welcome guests instead of labeling them as nothing but random hunches. Try stopping yourself during your next intuitive episode, whatever it is about, and make a mental note of what is taking place. Now, instead of ignoring it, or pushing it out, ask that intuitive part of yourself, “Why am I being pushed by my mind in this direction?” Develop a dialogue with that intuitive voice and simply note what you learn or what happens in the next few days as a result. By learning to have internal dialogues you will begin trusting your intuition and ultimately discover its loving presence and valuable contribution to your mind.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, July 21st, 2014 by John Van Auken in BORN AGAIN AND AGAIN

“We need to keep a very special tool with us throughout the journey – PATIENCE. Without it I don’t think any of us can make it. With patience we can continue to live in the physical world while becoming more and more alive to the spiritual one. Keep a sense of humor too. I’ve noticed that we have a tendency to become too serious about spiritual things. Not all of physical life is evil or mundane, and not all of the resurrection is bearing a cross.

When things have become too much for you, lighten the demands you’re placing on yourself. Balance out your life between heavy and light, serious and funny, work and play, purposefulness and nonsense. Take a long slow walk with a child or learn a new song to sing in the shower or a new joke to share with some friends.

Another old saying that has helped me with patience and staying relaxed yet focused on what I knew must be done is, “Be content, but never satisfied.” There’s a certain energy to contentment that is needed if we are to succeed without wasting ourselves, whereas satisfaction implies an acceptance of what is. We need to keep reaching beyond our present levels if we are to regain our greater state, but do so with a patient, contented energy.”

Best of PONDER on THIS for Friday, July 18th, 2014 by Deepak Chopra in AGELESS BODY, TIMELESS MIND

“Someone who experiences time as a scarce commodity that is constantly slipping away is creating a completely different personal reality from someone who perceives that he has all the time in the world. Is your day full of time pressure? Do you suffer the breathless, panicky symptoms of “time sickness,” which the body translates into rapid or irregular heartbeats, distorted digestive rhythms, insomnia, and high blood pressure? These individual differences express how we perceive change, for the perception of change creates our experience of time.

When your attention is in the past or the future, you are in the field of time, creating aging. One Indian master who seemed remarkably young for his age explained this by saying, “Most people spend their lives either in the past or the future, but my life is supremely concentrated in the present.” When a life is concentrated in the present, it is most real, because the past and the future are not impinging upon it. At this instant, where are the past and the future? Nowhere. Only the present moment exists; past and future are mental projections. If you can free yourself of these projections, trying neither to relive the past nor to control the future, a space is opened for a completely new experience – the experience of ageless body and timeless mind.”
