BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, November 15th, 2019 by Stuart Wilde in SIXTH SENSE

“If you are a positive, loving person, and if you stay away from shady deals and so forth, you’ll rarely become greatly entangled with scumbags, as they usually exist in a world of their own. But there are a lot of people out there, and some of the dark ones live right next door. You have to watch, and not take it personally, if the odd scumbag shows up in your life.

Through the laws of averages and the laws of physics, turds float. They drift around a lot, so one or two will inevitably float past your door. You just need to stay cool and distant, and establish good boundaries in your psychology. Let people know what you will tolerate and what you will not tolerate, and things should trot along quite nicely. Remember, it’s not judgmental to observe a low-energy oscillation and keep silent. It’s only judgment if you vocalize a personal judgment of it.”

Stuart Wilde, in “Sixth Sense”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, November 14th, 2019 by Alan Cohen in DARE TO BE YOURSELF

“Somewhere in our cultural psyche we have developed an image of a very serious God, and this notion has hurt us greatly. We believe that God is an old man with a white beard who sits on a cloud and judges us, ready and eager to cast us into the ovens of hell for the slightest transgression. This is not the God that I know, not is it the God that is. It is a picture of fear that we have projected onto the only figure in life who loves us consistently without condition or clause. We would do well to let this picture go forever; it is a portrait of pain.

God is a God of delight. Remember that gravity is the thing that keeps us bound to earth. Celebration is the energy that brings us true release. The lighter we are, the closer we rise to Heaven.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in YOUR SACRED SELF

“Post this affirmation in as many places as possible: “In my world, nothing ever goes wrong.” Look at it each day, and let it remind you that everything that is happening to you is in divine order and comes with a lesson. Also, it will help you to live in the spiritual realm – the realm of the changeless and eternal.

You will begin to identify yourself not with the problems that bombard your body but with the silent witness. You will see solutions pouring forth when you take this approach. If you know that your problems are not yours, but your body’s to own, then the act of witnessing will keep you from becoming inwardly immobilized. That serenity will present the solution for resolving the body’s problem.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, November 12th, 2019 by Pete Koerner in THE BELIEF FORMULA

“The hormones released by the body during the stress response are great in times of emergency – when your life may really be at stake. But stress hormones are harmful to your body at other times – causing weight gain and an estimated 95% of all trips to doctor’s offices. Stress – which is caused by thinking about things that make you feel bad – weakens the immune system, shuts down the reproductive system, and slows or stops digestion among other things; all of which lead to other problems – some of which are quite serious. Stress also makes you dumb by robbing your thinking centers of blood and oxygen.

Happiness, on the other hand, turns off the stress response and releases chemicals which are beneficial and healing to the body – boosting the immune system, and all the systems of the body. When you can change your thoughts, you can change your physical condition.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, November 11th, 2019 by Eckhart Tolle in THE POWER OF NOW

“Are you a habitual “waiter”? How much of your life do you spend waiting? What I call “small-scale waiting” is waiting in line at the post office, in a traffic jam, at the airport, or waiting for someone to arrive, to finish work, and so on. “Large-scale waiting” is waiting for the next vacation, for a better job, for the children to grow up, for a truly meaningful relationship, for success, to make money, to be important, to become enlightened. It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.

Waiting is a state of mind. Basically, it means that you want the future; you don’t want the present. You don’t want what you’ve got, and you want what you haven’t got. With every kind of waiting, you unconsciously create inner conflict between your here and now, where you don’t want to be, and the projected future, where you want to be. This greatly reduces the quality of your life by making you lose the present.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, November 8th, 2019 by Stephen Russell in BAREFOOT DOCTOR’S GUIDE TO THE TAO

“Other people will often be pressuring you to make up your mind about this or that. Do not, however, forgo your flexibility by assuming a position until you have no other choice. Remember, opinions, i.e., positions, are only opinions, which are as changeable as the wind in spring. Respect them, in self and others, but don’t take them too seriously.

In fact, don’t take anything too seriously, and always retain your sense of humor. As a warrior facing the rigors of the challenge, your sense of H is one of your most essential assets if you want to get to the other side without losing your sanity altogether.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, November 7th, 2019 by Arnold Patent in YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL

“Anytime we experience someone whose behavior causes us discomfort, we know that person represents someone, or is himself someone, whom we haven’t forgiven. By forgiving the person in our present experience, we are also forgiving whomever that person might represent, even though we are unaware of any connection…

Forgiveness is another way of changing our perception of people and events. Judging anything is a misperception of it. Everything that occurs is just another event or experience. It is neither good or bad, important or unimportant, right or wrong.

Why not allow ourselves to see the perfection in every experience? Life is just a series of events which we have attracted, in order to see where we stand in our personal growth. Forgiveness releases the energy block and returns us the joy which is our birthright.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, November 6th, 2019 by Sanaya Roman in PERSONAL POWER THROUGH AWARENESS

“There is a role for intellect, and that is to formulate plans, to decide where to go, and to carry things out with action. Intellect is like the captain of a ship, consulting maps, making plans and steering the ship. Yet the weather and the ocean actually determine the course; the captain must remain flexible and use his plans as a guideline. So it is with the intellect that steers your ship.

Intuition tells you of storms ahead, of detours (that turn out to be shortcuts); it monitors a future path designed to bring you your highest good. Use your intellect to set goals, to aim you higher. Focus your will and intent on going higher – that is the best use of your intellect, to keep you on course, to set goals and to interact with the world. Your intuition will take you there the best, fastest and easiest way – if you follow your feelings, hunches, inner urges, and deeper desires.”

“Looking at the human body as a congealed thought, which at first may strike the reader as strange, is in the final analysis deeply empowering. Repeatedly, quantum physicists have demonstrated that a scientist always and inevitably affects the outcome of an experiment simply by observing it, a realization now universally accepted in the scientific community as the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.

Even more amazing is the paradigm-altering discovery that gave rise to the aforementioned particle-wave duality: the probability that the physicist actually creates the quantum particles he or she observes, since in unobserved states these particles appear to exist only as waves.

A fundamental and revolutionary truth emerges from this information: consciousness creates. As human beings imbued with free will, we can use the power of our consciousness to re-create our reality: including but not limited to a body, mind and spirit free of disease.”

“It never fails to amuse me when I hear declarations such as, “That’s not possible!” or people engaging in telling others what God means by, or feels about, a certain thing. For example, to isolate something as being impossible, you must have an awareness of all things that are, in fact, possible so that you can check the list and see if this presumably impossible item is there. The only such reference that I am aware of would be biblical: “In God, all things are possible…” What thing is not on this list? And what man knows the mind of God?”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, November 1st, 2019 by Stuart Wilde in THE LITTLE MONEY BIBLE

“All ideas that are holy and good and honest, ideas that serve humanity and yourself, will have a positive energy of their own. When you head out to materialize a money-making plan, it will gather momentum. It’s as if the Universe-at-Large leads you step-by-step, showing you the way. That’s flow. You meet the right people, you sit in the right seat on the plane, and next to you is the very person you need to connect with. It’s a wonderful thing, watching flow in motion. We all know what it looks like when it’s working; the trick is to be able to pull back when things aren’t flowing.

As I said my little book “Life Was Never Meant to Be a Struggle,” struggle is effort laced with emotion. As humans, we are required to exert effort in order to get things done. So if you’re cycling up a hill delivering loaves of bread, you will expend calories pedaling. Effort is natural. But when one’s energy expenditure gets wrapped up in loads of negative emotion, that’s when you flip to the unnatural – from effort to struggle.”

“You are not dependent upon the companionship of others as much as you tend to think you are. You are not any more integral to others’ lives than they are to yours. Yet how you want to keep everyone and everything in place. You want people where you put them and you want them to stay there until you want them again. You want them to be what you want when you want. But they do not want to do your bidding any more than you want to do theirs. They don’t even know what your bidding is. You don’t really know.”

“Nothing will crucify you faster than your own thoughts. Better not to think at all, if you can do it. And if you can’t, if you must think, think about simple things. Think about washing the dishes or doing the laundry. Think about things that must be done. And then let the mind be free of thought.

Everything you believe about the nature of your existence keeps you limited to the past. If you want to experience the moment unconditionally, give up all your concepts of it. Just be present in your life as it unfolds.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, October 29th, 2019 by Neale Donald Walsch in CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD, BOOK 2

“The greatest challenge as human beings is to Be Here Now, to stop making things up! Stop creating thoughts about a pre-sent moment (a moment you “sent” yourself before you had a thought about it.) Be in the moment. Remember, you sent your Self this moment as a gift. The moment contained the seed of a tremendous truth. It is a truth you wished to remember. Yet when the moment arrived, you immediately began constructing thoughts about it. Instead of being in the moment, you stood outside the moment and judged it. Then you re-acted. That is, you acted as you did once before. Now, look at these two words:

REACTIVE
CREATIVE

Notice they are the same word. Only the “C” has been moved! When you “C” things correctly, you become Creative, rather than Reactive.”

God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsh, in Conversations with God, Book 2

“Most group beliefs are based on various interpretations of the Bible, where Christian churches are concerned (each religion has their own foundational documents), and the Bible has some catch-all’s in it that put all such new rules to a test that they can not withstand. “Judge not…,” for instance, doesn’t say, “Try not to judge, unless you see someone who is clearly different from you, then it’s acceptable to ostracize them.” It is really quite simple, everyone is different and it is human nature to think that they are different from you, and not that you are different from them.”
