BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, August 31st, 2021 by John St. Augustine in LIVING AN UNCOMMON LIFE

“Life is not fair…There are going to be times that test every fiber of your being. People of character are fully aware that they may not be able to control the events of their lives, but they are in charge of their response to those events. Life is set up as a growing process. Every new season brings growth, and humans are not outside the cycle of change (even though we would like to think so). Instead of whining when something comes your way that doesn’t fit your idea of how things should be (of course, a little pressure release is allowed), face it head-on, stare it down, and see it for what it is. Character is built on the hard times of life, not the easy ones, so ducking punches actually can make you weaker, not stronger.”

John St. Augustine, in “Living an Uncommon Life”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, August 30th, 2021 by Gary Spinell in IT WAS YOU, ALL ALONG

“We have been taught that there is only so much to go around for everyone, whether it is love, money, or success. Some religions teach that God has reasons that some of us fail. They teach that if we do not adhere to God’s rules then we suffer the consequences. When you are all you can be you have the ability to give more of yourself and what you have to others, thereby creating an even more wonderful Universe.

Some religions, or religious leaders attempt to show they are better than people who attend their service to keep the worshippers coming back to donate more money, because some leaders fear once you understand you create your own world and you can find your connection to God yourself and achieve success, you might no longer need these religious leaders. Their shortsightedness makes us all pay in the long run.

God wants everyone to succeed, learn and grow. There is no value for God if you are not being successful and achieving your dreams and heart’s desires. To believe that being poor but having a good heart is somehow going to make us more worthy or deserving is a myth. There is great value – for God and all of us – in being all we can be, in having all God can provide, if we are willing to accept it. If God is “saddened” by anything, it is each of us not being all we can be. The only true “sin” is not being the best we can be.”

PONDER on THIS for Friday, August 27th, 2021 by Anthony Watts in LOVING ON PURPOSE

“The words “I am” are a combination of the most energized and powerful words in the creation of what we desire to become or create. Placing the words “I am” in front of anything you believe to be true is as how farmers noticeably believe that when they plant their crops in the spring that they will be harvesting their crops in the fall! Neville Goddard himself states how God did not assume individuality, but the nature of humanity. Source energy or the energy of God dwells in you, for the words I am became flesh and dwells in us all which is a spiritual truth. I am that I am is spoken in many religions which can be referred to your consciousness. The “I am” factor is praised according to your conscious of which you are.

In today’s time and context many coaches and mentors teach how to change a paradigm through the repetition of affirmations. When they have their students begin their affirmation with “I am worthy of”…whatever their student’s conscious mind begins to realize that is true too and for them becomes true and for them effortlessly in divine time. We know that we are worthy of love and riches so we must protect our thoughts, emotions, and actions against all negative energies that pose a threat to our personal truths.”

“We are all victims of victims, and they could not possibly have taught us anything they did not know. If your mother did not know how to love herself, or your father did not know how to love himself, then it would be impossible for them to teach you to love yourself. They were doing the best they could with what they had been taught as children. If you want to understand your parents more, get them to talk about their own childhood; and if you listen with compassion, you will learn where their fears and rigid patterns come from. Those people who ‘did all that stuff to you’ were just as frightened and scared as you are.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, August 24th, 2021 by Wayne W. Dyer in MANIFEST YOUR DESTINY

“The most important thing to remember as you practice mental picturing for the purposes of manifesting your desires is that humans never create anything. Our function is not to create, but to attract combine and distribute what already exists. Creations are really new combinations of already existing materials.

I am not speaking here of creating energy, but of transforming one form of energy into another. Our creative power is the ability to convert the energy of our thoughts into a newly materialized form. Manifestation is the result.

There is one indispensable condition for the manifestation of that picture into the visible and concrete world. The world of spirit is immune to the concept of time and space. Therefore, the picture must either be formed here and now or not at all. Once you have this awareness you will understand the necessity of picturing the fulfillment of your desire as if it is already accomplished on the spiritual plane.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, August 23rd, 2021 by Lily Fairchilde in SONG OF THE PHOENIX

“Hatred, vengeance, guilt, and self-condemnation are toxic emotions which feed on the inability to forgive. They weaken the body, mind and soul. Love strengthens; it heals and makes you whole. To prove this to yourself, take a moment to go within. Think of someone, or some situation, that you have not been able or willing to forgive. Feel the heaviness of this, the contracted tension, the darkness. Now, move your focus to someone or something you feel great love for. Allow yourself to experience the warmth, the elation, the calm peace you find there. If you had a choice – and you do – which place would you rather be in?”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, August 20th, 2021 by Alan Cohen in WHY YOUR LIFE SUCKS AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

“In relationships, the primary motivator for manipulation is emotional insecurity. If I can get you to feel guilty, you will stay where I want you and do what I like. You will have sex with me, give me money, keep a roof over my head, or drive the kids where I tell you. If you feel bad enough about yourself, I will hold the power to make choices for you that serve me. We call this “love.” Or “marriage.” Yet love and marriage have nothing to do with keeping each other small; their purpose is to bestow richer life, not imprisonment. It’s not love if it hurts.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, August 17th, 2021 by Terry Cole-Whittaker in LIVE YOUR BLISS

“The mind is an altar on which we place and worship thoughts and images. Whatever gets placed on this altar gets our attention and motivates us to act in service to the thought or image. Unless we know the difference between what is true and what is false, we will place our fears on this altar, will believe and act on them, and in doing so, we will manifest the very situations we are afraid of.

We are constantly bombarded with thoughts, images, sounds, subliminal communications, and energy waves of every kind. The ones we accept, believe, and act on function as magnets, drawing to us their vibrational equivalent in people, events, things, and circumstances. Our own stores of information, whether accurate or not, flood our conscious minds with thoughts and concepts unless we control our minds by keeping them peaceful, so that we can use them to receive the spiritual thoughts and guidance.. By placing the tool of the mind in its right location, in the spiritual zone, it becomes our good friend.”

“Most people agree that our entire universe was at some point created by nothingness by an infinite intelligent power. Absolutely everything in this universe is God’s creation, and yet most of us spend a great deal of time judging parts of God’s creation as bad, wrong, ugly, negative, sinful, evil, and so on.

Every time we negatively judge a person or situation, we are in essence telling God, “Hey, you really messed up on this one. This particular part of your creation sucks.”

What a thing to say to our Creator. What amazing gall our egos have, to stand in judgment of God’s creation. From my perspective, to condemn anything in this universe seems to be, at the very least, highly presumptuous.”

“Feeling and expressing gratitude for the good we have in our lives doesn’t give us permission to passively accept the aspects of our lives that are not working. However, as we labor to spin the straw of lack into gold, we must focus on our wealth, not our poverty. And while we must consciously make an effort not to push away or avoid our problems, it is imperative that we simultaneously find things to praise. Complaining only focuses our mind’s attention on what is missing, and what we mentally focus on gradually take shape in the outer world.”
