Why We’re Blessed…

Turn your attention to the many ways in which you are blessed in your life; think of these things with sincerity, and you will discover an endless stream of blessings that come to you. - Teacher Olfana

blessed!

Every time we think, it’s a thought we’re choosing. And each of those times it’s up to us if we want to choose a positive thought or one that doesn’t serve us. If we believe that thoughts that we think today manifest themselves in our lives tomorrow, then all the more reason we want to pick just the right thoughts. We are our own master, let’s not relinquish that right. One great way to have the right kind of thoughts is to keep our focus on what’s working really well in our life. Be thankful. Some of the most powerful ideas that work are that simple.

affirmations

Today I AM looking around and within. I AM extremely grateful and pleased. I AM blessed, thank you God!

Why Be Quiet?

The quieter you become the more you can hear. - Ram Dass

it’s all good

True silence can do wonders. True silence is that of the mind not that of the audible kind. As we become more still, we can observer better, we listen more intently, we perceive a lot more and our sense of intuition flowers! Inspiration and creativity is heightened when we let our mind settle down naturally.

How do you do that?

Watch yourself. Watch as thoughts arise, notice their origin, and where they lead you. Observe how you act or react to any incident. Get to know yourself intimately, in this fashion. Your effortless watching of self leads to a quiet alertness that connects you to the essence of all that is. A peace beyond understanding, a joy inexpressible, then emerges!

affirmations

Today I AM still. I AM peaceful. I AM connected. I AM joy.

What’s Our Purpose?

Learn to get in touch with silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from. - Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

it’s all good

Do we ever get the feeling that everything’s got to have a purpose, that we have got to have a purpose, otherwise all that we do is for naught? Well that’s exactly how it is. There’s a purpose and a season for everything and everyone.

Questions:

  • What is our purpose in life?
  • What have events in our life prepared us to do, today?
  • Or what are they preparing us to do eventually?

Answers to these questions and real direction can be had if we but “learn to get in touch with silence within yourself”. Are we going to try that?

affirmations

Today I AM still and feeling good. I AM confident that all’s well. I can feel God’s blessings in my life. And am ready to embrace each new moment!
