BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, August 2nd, 2019 by Deepak Chopra in THE SEVEN SPIRITUAL LAWS OF SUCCESS

“Intention combined with detachment leads to life-centered, present-moment awareness. And when action is performed in present-moment awareness, it is most effective. Your intent is for the future, but your attention is in the present. As long as your attention is in the present, then your intent for the future will manifest, because the future is created in the present. You must accept the present as is. Accept the present and intend the future. The future is something you can always create through detached intention, but you should never struggle against the present.”

Deepak Chopra, in “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, August 1st, 2019 by Cherie Carter-Scott, Ph.D. in IF LIFE IS A GAME THESE ARE THE RULES

“My friend Laura keeps an “inspiration box” on her dresser, in which she stores quotes written on scraps of paper and objects that inspire her. She has everything in there from a Chinese fortune that says “You are your own deepest fountain” to a sparkly blue marble given to her by her young son. Whenever she is searching for an answer to one of life’s many questions or problems, she reaches into her inspiration box and draws something out to put her in touch with her own wisdom.

What would you put in your inspiration box?”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, July 31st, 2019 by Richard Carlson, PH.D., in DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF

“The truth is, if you have destructive mental habits — if you get annoyed and bothered easily, if you feel angry and frustrated a great deal of the time, or if you’re constantly wishing things were different, these identical tendencies will follow you, wherever you go. And the reverse is also true. If you are a generally happy person who rarely gets annoyed and bothered, then you can move from place to place, from person to person, with very little negative impact…

Something wonderful begins to happen with the simple realization that life, like an automobile, is driven from the inside out, not the other way around. As you focus on becoming more peaceful with where you are, rather than focusing on where you would rather be, you begin to find peace right now, in the present. Then, as you move around, try new things, and meet new people, you carry that sense of inner peace with you.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, July 30th, 2019 by Gloria Wendroff in HEAVENLETTERS

“The truth is that you have no control. You cannot control life. Your control is only resistance, and your resistance comes from a precluded idea or two. Nothing has to be the way you thought it had to be. Your thoughts are wisps.

When you can accept that your calculations may have been miscalculations, you will be on a new footing. You will leave the old sticky past. You will arise to great before-unimagined heights because you will have let go of the ballast you held on to.

You have been a boat moored to shore. You paddled and paddled, and wondered why you couldn’t just leave shore. Now is the time to unmoor the boat. Cast off. You cannot stay at the safety of shore and ride the waves of the ocean at the same time. Is that not what you have been attempting to do? Have you not hobbled yourself with old ideas you fashioned?”

“When you free your mind of illusions, and the doubt and fear that sustains them, all that will be left is belief; and that is what drives the mechanism of manifestation. You would be surprised at how many people will hear such a thing and dismiss it immediately out of disbelief. There is nothing for sale here, you ask for it, believing, and you get it. Disbelief is self-sustaining; it doesn’t need any extra help from you. If you don’t start, right now, believing in the things that you want, then your disbelief will keep you from ever having them. Until you come to terms with this, life will continue to feel a bit heavy at times.”

“When you are afraid, imagine that you are being held and embraced by the most loving friend you have ever had, one who cares for you unconditionally, who loves you whether you have high thoughts or low, who is by your side all the time, and embraces you with constant light. This is your soul. Know that you do have this friend you can call upon when you are afraid, who will help you connect with that higher part of yourself…All you need do is ask for the help or connection, and it will be there.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, July 25th, 2019 by Wayne W. Dyer in THERE’S A SPIRITUAL SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM

“We have been trained to think in terms of sin and punishment. These ideas dis-empower us by stressing that we are weak and wrong. The empowering way is to view trials as lessons and opportunities to choose differently. We can transcend the old notion of being sinners cloaked in guilt, awaiting punishment.

To access a spiritual solution to a problem involves focusing on the idea of a solution. The sinner filled with guilt becomes immobilized and remains in passive inertia. When we view the sinful behavior as an obstacle to a higher level of awareness, we can still take responsibility by asking ourselves, “What is the lesson for me? And what can I do to avoid this the next time?”

“Money seems to be an issue with everyone. You all have very definitive beliefs about how money comes to you. The more you believe you must work hard for money, the harder you are going to have to work. Many of you believe it is quite normal to work hard for money and that if you don’t work hard for money then it’s “dirty.”

Let us ask you to remember the word effortless and incorporate it into your vocabulary. Say to yourself, “I am effortlessly intending this to come about.” To be effortless is to command reality to bring itself to you in a way that gives room for plenty of energy to be expended in other experimentation.

Remember, your reality is a result of your thoughts. If you believe that things are hard, what are you creating?”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019 by Marianne Williamson in EVERYDAY GRACE

“Miracles can come from anything, anywhere, anytime. There is no situation that ties God’s hands. He is bigger than layoffs, or recessions, or stock market losses. Every ending is a new beginning. Through the grace of God, we can always start again.

You have not been fired; you have been liberated. You might not feel that way, which is fine. Cry your tears, but remember this: The resurrected state already exists. It lives within us as an eternal and operative principle. Claim your good, for it is on the way.

If you allow this situation to throw you more deeply into the arms of God, then the next time someone hires you – and they will – they will be hiring someone who is better at what you do because you are more fully who you are. Fear comes, fear passes. Only the truth of who you are remains, to shine on everything. And that is your job, now and always: to shine and illumine the world.”

“I asked a deacon at a local church if he had asked God to relieve him of an illness he had been suffering from for a number of weeks. He said, “No.” The implications within his admission are tremendous. How many of us don’t pray because we don’t believe? How many of us do pray, but don’t truly believe? How many people think that blindly accepting the stories grown-ups once told them is the same as having true faith and belief? I truly believe that it is nothing more than a simple lack of faith, or belief, which has led to a breaking of the trinity for most people; and it is precisely such a disconnection which renders prayers marginally effective at best. Trust the process and the process will support you. You must believe.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, July 19th, 2019 by Deepak Chopra in HOW TO KNOW GOD

“…After you assume authorship in of your own life, outcomes are never in doubt. No matter what happens to you, each event has a place and a meaning. You see that your spiritual journey makes sense, even down to the smallest details. It isn’t that your ego wakes up every morning and arranges your day. Events still unfold unpredictably, yet at the moment they occur, you know that you are adequate to meet them. No question arises that doesn’t have its own answer somewhere inside it. The adventure is to uncover the creative solutions that most appeal to you. Like an author that can make any world he chooses on the page, you gain authorship based on your own inclinations, with no outside help and no second opinions.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, July 18th, 2019 by John St. Augustine in LIVING AN UNCOMMON LIFE

“Here’s the deal: Resisting the inevitable is an exercise in futility. The process of transformation excludes no one. The only question is: How hard will you fight the changes that are manifesting in your life? What will it take you to embrace them? We are a world filled with people who desperately wish their lives to be different in some way. And yet when the universe presents options (that may look at the time like closed doors, lost love, and empty bank accounts), we balk at the idea of having to change within.

Every outer circumstance is manifest from an inner place, and if that place does not include transformation, then you remain a leaf-munching worm that is food for birds. To tell the truth, even when you transform, you are food for birds – you just look better. Be open to the transformation that is being placed in your path. It makes the time in the cocoon that much easier.”

“Manifesting your dreams begins with the difficult task of discovering what they truly are. As children, we follow the footsteps of our parents and teachers. Most of us accept their guidance and wisdom about what classes to take in school. They influence our choice of hobbies, sports, and clubs that fill up our free time. As we get older we often choose our careers and our mates based on ideals established by our elders. But at what point do we stop listening to these external voices and tune in to our inner guides? When do we decide that perhaps the path we’re on is not really our own? Could this be the reason we feel something is missing in our lives?

These are the kinds of questions we fear most because they require us to second-guess what we’ve been taught. Have you ever questioned your belief in God? For some, to question holy doctrine is a mortal sin. But if we don’t challenge our most basic beliefs we won’t grow as spiritual beings. Our lives will simply run along lines established by our parents, and we’ll never go beyond those boundaries that were set when we were kids.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, July 16th, 2019 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in REAL MAGIC

“Memorize and continually remind yourself, “My intention creates my reality.” Experience with intention as a way of creating miracles is probably an unfamiliar concept to you. Most of us have been raised to think of our desires, wishes, hopes and fantasies as the seeds to our personal fulfillment. However, desires are stagnant, they do not set energy into motion, they do not create for you. Intention is the energy of your soul coming into contact with your physical reality. What you see around you, whom you associate with, how you function daily, what your relationships are like, how much money you make, how you get along with others, the shape of your physical body, and virtually everything about the physical you, is a result of your intention, or how your thoughts become energized into action.”

“Things can go any way. All things are indeed possible. This is why people say, “Be careful what you ask for; you just might get it!” We need to be specific – and patient – if there is a specific thing we would like to see. Remember the Genie in the bottle? This is what that story is about. Just as they say that you can see what you want in life by looking around at what you have; your ability, or inability, to see creation is certainly no reflection on the creative Force that acts to fulfill your every desire.

Just because you haven’t seen it yet doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist; and just because you have judged an experience as negative, doesn’t mean that you are under attack. God, or the Universe, or whatever force you believe placed you here, is for you – not against you. Get that straight in your head and you will have a much easier time seeing how quickly and precisely your prayers really are answered.”
