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.”

Vadim Zeland, in “Reality Transurfing Steps I-V”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, March 13th, 2020 by Stuart Wilde in SIXTH SENSE

“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.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, March 12th, 2020 by William L. Murta in DYING FOR A CHANGE

“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.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, March 11th, 2020 by Deborah Denicola in THE FUTURE THAT BROUGHT HER HERE

“Reflect what you want reflected back. Do unto others. Only by changing your own fear into love can this occur. Only if you know beyond a doubt that death is not the end can you transcend this fear, this greed, this clinging to material things. The great mythographer, the late Joseph Campbell, said the most important teaching of Christianity is to love your neighbor. Most of us find this little pill a little hard to swallow sometimes…The Second Coming is not the arrival that fundamentalist and traditional religions are awaiting. Christ consciousness is available to everyone now. It is a resurrection in the heart, not on the cross. And the transition has been made easier in this era. For the first time in many millennia, we do not have to die first before we can move to a higher dimension, if we just ask the spiritual world for help.

Once upon a time, I was too educated, too “intellectual,” too “rational” to ask or to believe. Not once, but several times, I was brought to my knees and my childhood faith helped me to learn to believe differently. No I am fortunate enough to see with my eyes that the help is indeed here. Feeling worthy of it is the final crossing.”

“Effective prayer begins with mindfulness and awareness that each word was first a thought and each thought is essentially a prayer. With this awareness, and the further understanding that we exist within that which always tries to accommodate us and answer our prayers, we would see how counterproductive entertaining a negative thought for even a moment can be. This is what is meant by the saying, “You can’t afford the luxury of a negative thought.”

“When you recognize that your spirit is withering, stop and do whatever it takes to renew yourself. Get outdoors. Take your best friend to dinner at your favorite restaurant. Walk on the beach and drink in the magic moment when the sun kisses the ocean. Get a deep full-body massage with sensual aromatic oil. Rent your favorite movies, pop a huge vat of popcorn, and have your own film festival for a weekend. Plan or take the vacation you’ve been putting off. Marvel at your own shadow under the full moon. Anything you do to feel better will shift everything else you do. As Ally McBeal noted, “When I eat Jello I feel better. Don’t ask me to reduce it to a science.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, March 6th, 2020 by David Simon in THE TEN COMMITMENTS

“It’s much more challenging to forgive when we believe that someone knowingly hurt another person. Lying, emotional or physical abuse, stealing, committing adultery, indulging in addictive behaviors – the pain and anger generated by these choices are more difficult to release because we ascribe intention to the behavior. However, the practice of forgiveness means remembering that everyone is doing their best given their personal history and emotional resources.

People are responsible for their actions. Forgiveness does not imply we tolerate thieves stealing, teenagers lying, or partners cheating. We can disagree with and not tolerate a behavior even while we understand the trespass in terms of immaturity, inability or limited awareness.

Each of us has succumbed to shortsighted, selfish interests that resulted in unpleasant ramifications. Understanding that, like you, other people are doing their best can help foster forgiveness and the freedom it brings.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, March 5th, 2020 by Dr. Joan Borysenko in MINDING THE BODY, MENDING THE MIND

“See people for who they are instead of who you want them to be. Then accept them as they are rather than judging them for who they are not. The more accepting you become of yourself, the more you can see others in the same light. The core of every human being is the same – unconditioned consciousness – the Self. See the Self in others. If you are religious or spiritual, you can think in terms of seeing the divine in one another. Honor your own Self and honor the Self in others. The Eastern greeting Namaste is similar in meaning to Hebrew and Hawaiian greetings. It means, “The Self in me honors and salutes the Self in you.” (My Self salutes Your Self.)

Ponder during your daily activities and interactions how much energy is used up in defending various positions that make you feel “right,” worthy, okay. When you begin to realize your own precious, unique self-worth, the need to define yourself will diminish, and your body will naturally relax.”

“It is impossible to eradicate fear. This would be foolish anyway as it would divest you of a crucial ally. You need fear to keep you alive, both in emergencies and in day-to-day survival matters. Fear is not there to stop you. It’s there to push you on in the right direction. It is not there to rule you, it’s there to serve you.

Your fear prevents you from burning your hands in the oven, but this does not prevent you from cooking food. To continue effectively on your path, your fear must be overridden. Overriding fear involves first acknowledging it and then continuing in spite of it, quaking in your boots if need be. This trembling, openhearted willingness to remain forever in your course, allowing the world to shape itself to completion around you, is true courage.”

“If you say that dreams don’t come true, I would have to ask you at what point you stopped dreaming and started doubting, and what made you choose that particular time frame as a completion date for your prayer? What might happen if you continued to expect your prayer to be answered instead of proclaiming it a failure? What if your answer was to arrive the day after you hit the “cancel” button on you request?

Unfortunately, you may never know. Why sit around thinking about how you were ignored by God when you could be thinking of all the different ways your prayer could be answered, and how grateful you are that God does such things for you? Why view yourself as a victim when you could just as easily view yourself as the recipient of great gifts – even if some of those gifts are lessons that you asked for in some way, but would rather not learn?”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, March 2nd, 2020 by John Randolph Price in LIVING A LIFE OF JOY

“When a violent, judging, punishing God is talked about in the Bible, particularly the Old Testament, the reference is not to the Supreme Deity but to a god created in the image of man and projected into the world as an arrogant, angry, jealous ruler. Contrary to Jesus’ teachings, the early Church accepted this view of God. Clement, Bishop of Rome (circa A.D. 90-100), wrote that “God, the God of Israel, alone rules all things: he is the lord and master whom all must obey; he is the judge who lays down the law, punishing rebels and rewarding the obedient”…His God was obviously created in the image of man and remains as part of the collective consciousness.

It is difficult to understand why the belief in a false god continues when for thousands of years the true God has been revealed by the saints, sages, mystics, and masters in every culture, race, and religion. There is only an infinitely loving God whose Mind could not conceive of anything so humanly created as a pit of fire for lost souls. There are not lost souls because we are a part of God and God cannot be lost. This is a benevolent universe with consciousness as a key to life on every plane of existence. God does not give, take away, reward, or punish. God is love indwelling, forever expressing all that is good, true, and beautiful in life – nurturing, nourishing, caring – never judging, angry, or vindictive.”

“What we call love is something that is so generic that it’s not even what love really is. Love is much more than words can describe….We we cannot really talk about the truth; we need to experience the truth. The same is true of love. The only way to really know love is to experience love, to have the courage to jump into the ocean of love, and perceive it in its totality. That is the only way, but we are programmed with so much fear that we don’t see the love coming from all around us. We look for love in other people when they don’t love themselves. Of course we won’t find love there; we only find selfishness and a war of control.

You don’t have to search for love. Love is here because God is here; the force of life is everywhere. We humans create the story of separation, and we search for what we believe we don’t have. We search for perfection, for love, for truth, for justice, and we search and search when everything is inside of us. Everything is here; we just need to open our spiritual eyes to see it.”

“The best that linear, sequential thinking can give you is a map of your potential experience. But it cannot guide you through that experience. When you are in the midst of the experience, there are signs that help you out. The detour sign tells you when there is a need for change of direction. Highway signs tell you to get in the right lane or the left. There are signs telling you where there are places to eat, to sleep or to get gas. Without reading those signs you could not have a successful experience.

Signs come from the interface between outer and inner reality. They are created through our intuitive connection with life. Signs happen only in the present moment. You don’t get a sign that says “go right tomorrow or sometime next month.” The sign says go right now or very soon. Signs show you how to navigate in the here and now. They are extremely useful and important. Unfortunately, they are almost totally neglected by the left brain, linear mind.

When you go on a journey, a map can be very helpful. Left brain information can help you to prepare. But once you embark, signs are a necessity. Are you paying attention to the signs that arise in your life? Or are you trying to do your life with a map alone?”

“Worthwhile goals demand effort, risk, and sacrifice. You have to persist through fear and doubt; you have to draw on inner resources and become more than you were before. Every new challenge serves as an initiation: You meet discouragement; you overcome discomfort, boredom, and frustration; you find out what you’re made of…What pulls you through the muddy paths of life is the vision that inspired you to begin the quest. It can draw you like a magnet through the muck and mire. So the first step in any process is creating a direction, choosing a goal that shines for you.”

“For humans, un-conflicted behavior is quite rare, but very illuminating. Fear is a contractive energy that keeps us from venturing too far outside our comfort zone and keeps un-conflicted behavior at bay. By surrendering this fear, we can see what our true capabilities are in any given situation. By surrendering our fears and opening our hearts, we can get a glimpse of what our true power really looks like. By surrendering our fears, we are letting go of our illusions of control and allowing our future to unfold the way God would have it be for us.”
