A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul. – Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
a quality life
Goethe refers to living a life of quality. That’s one in which we appreciate Beauty in thought and in form. It’s a life where we acknowledge and accept Truth in any form that we behold it. And one where Goodness in action and being is considered a great way to live.
Attention to Truth, Beauty & Goodness will sculpt a life well lived, a life that’s fulfilling at the deepest level, one that is full of Love and its expression.
Today I live a quality life! I pay attention to the True, the Beauty and the Goodness around me and in others. I take it easy because there’s really no hurry. Consequently I can truly enjoy life and its bounties. I truly listen to nature and to my brothers and sisters. Life is good and it’ll never be any other way!

You make your choices by your attention to things. – Abraham
We often wonder how and why certain things show up in our lives. How can we be empowered so that we design our lives rather than appear to be helpless victims to it?
The Universe is like a finely tuned, elaborate and sophisticated reflective system that seeks input from creative beings. It’s unbiased and faithfully reproduces the vibrations that it constantly perceives. The Universe pays attentions whenever we pay attention to anything. Let’s really watch the things, the people and the emotions that we dwell on, because that’s how we make choices each moment. Consequently more of the same will be manifested in our lives!

Trust creates peace. – ‘Yogi Tea’ Fortune
Something is definitely missing in our lives. What is it? We search for it incessantly and we don’t quite find it. We look for it in relationships, in cars and gadgets, at work and in our hobbies but that ‘something’ stays mostly elusive! What is it? What is it that’ll help us be at peace and fulfilled?
An ultimate answer will never be forthcoming! Why? Because life, God’s creation, is endless and eternal, just like God. We can continually progress as we move along; we’re never ‘there’ though. But there is something we can attain while on the journey. And that’s a certain peace. How can we start feeling this peace? Via trust and faith. We must trust, that as children of the ‘most high’ we are safe, all is well and that all will be well. Such peace is accentuated via stillness.
Daily Affirmation: Today I trust!

You are born into the world, but no amount of anxiety and no manifestation of impatience will help you to grow up. You must, in all such matters, wait upon time. Time alone will ripen the green fruit upon the tree. – Jesus, Urantia Papers
it takes time & space!
Time and space … think about it … why do they exist? They exist to allow for experience and growth to occur. When we’re observant experience leads to wisdom. Wisdom leads to happiness and a better life. How to get there?
Patience comes from breathing deeply and realizing that it takes time and space to accomplish all. Patience come from having faith. Hurry produces worry. Worry leads to poor mental and physical health. Which means we can’t be very clear about our soul direction, which in turn means we’ll never be fulfilled or happy! So let’s breathe deeply and take it easy. No one is irreplaceable…

I would permit no man, no matter what his color might be, to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him. – Booker T. Washington
We defile ourselves when we think thoughts at lower vibratory levels. Such thoughts consist of jealousy, hatred, worry, dislike, lack and self-degradation. Our minds and bodies, literally, start vibrating at lower frequencies when we allow ourselves to think this way. We then attract more mental anguish, turmoil and ill-health. It’s law, it must happen that way.
upgrading the soul
The opposite is true of course. We can raise our vibratory levels by thinking lovely thoughts, by living in love, by appreciating beauty and art, by listening to uplifting music and by having a positive life expectation.
How will we impact our soul today, right now?

To be born is to be chosen. No one is here by accident. – John O’Donohue
Sometimes we might think … ‘Hey we didn’t ask to be born, so how come we have to go through all this?’. Well that might be true but we are created beings. Think about that.
God created us.
Reflect on what we create with love and attention. Surely God did the same for each of us? If that’s case then we weren’t just created, we were chosen, we are an expression, we are a largely unexpressed desire, of All That Is! This is a mind-boggling thought.
And because we are chosen we each have a special destiny! You know when children play, they have a fantastic time and they truly believe that what they’re doing is valuable and special. We need to remind ourselves of that same spirit. We’re living and breathing in God’s playground, learning special skills and expressing unique actions. Let’s claim our special destiny and make our time on this planet the best we can!!

Nothing is as real as a dream. The world can change around you, but your dream will not. Responsibilities need not erase it. Duties need not obscure it. Because the dream is within you, no one can take it away. – Unknown
don’t lose it
Let’s not murder our dreams. By accepting the norm, by being too complacent, by adopting the humdrum and through procrastination we become lazy about our dreams. While there’s a lot to be said about being fulfilled, about what we have and about enjoying the moment, we must not stop dreaming! A friend shared this amazing blog by Paulo Coelho, this is what got me thinking about dreams!
Creation emerged from God’s dream, his visualization of what ought to be and then it happened. We must not let go of our own dreams, it’s our duty to be co-creators with the Universe. Let’s create via our dreams, let’s be life artists!!
Daily Affirmation: Today I dream beautiful dreams.
