BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, March 27th, 2020 by Jeff Maziarek in SPIRITUALITY SIMPLIFIED

“As this passage from Conversations with God, Book 1 relates, it is especially important that we not use the words “I AM” in front of anything that we don’t want to experience:

“I AM is the strongest creative statement in the Universe. Whatever you think, whatever you say, after the words “I AM” sets into motion those experiences, calls them forth, brings them to you. There is no other way the Universe knows how to work. There is no other route it knows to take. The Universe responds to “I AM” as would a genie in a bottle”

This is a very powerful admonition, for when you stop to reflect on it for a moment, you realize that in normal day-to-day speech it is quite common for all of us to use “I AM” in some very negative ways. For example, how many times have you heard someone say, “I am depressed, or I am angry, or I am just a klutz,” or something similar?

If you are a typical person, it is likely that you’ve heard or said these types of statements perhaps hundreds of times. In my own case, I commonly used such declarations throughout much of my life until I read Conversations with God, Book 1 and came across that passage. Since that discovery, I have become far more judicious about how I use the “I AM” statement in my daily self-talk, and in my conversations with others as well.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, March 26th, 2020 by Misa Hopkins in THE ROOT OF ALL HEALING

“Mother Earth, by her very nature, through her rhythms, teaches you how to live in more harmonious ways. Being in nature helps you put your life into perspective so you can experience a softer, gentler view toward yourself and others. Notice how problems seem more manageable after you take a good walk, hike or run outdoors. Your endorphins are up, hopefully you have been breathing good air, and you have been allowing yourself to receive nourishment from the beauty of the outdoors.

A walk through a rose garden can lift your spirits within minutes as you enjoy the intoxicating scent of the flowers. Take a cup of tea outside and let the breeze tickle your hair. Notice how quickly you rest into the moment when you leave your demanding world for even a few minutes and breathe with nature. After being in nature you may find yourself in a marvelous state of being that is simultaneously relaxed and energized, and therefore, in a much better frame of mind to address the daily challenges to find harmonious solutions.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 by Will Murtha in DYING FOR A CHANGE

Will Murtha: When I haul myself out of bed every day, I see the whole process of life as one big fight. In my present sales environment, I either get there first for the order, or I miss out and lose. We all have to fight for what we have achieved. We must all struggle for what we have. That’s what life is about, isn’t it? Fighting for what you believe. Fighting for what you want.

Voice of Higher Presence: What if I told you that fighting for everything isn’t necessary? There is always enough in the world. There are always enough sales orders, food, housing and clothing. There’s an abundance of water, shelter, love and compassion. The question is never about whether there is enough. It is about whether people want to share what they hoard. Please do not make the mistake of believing that life should be one constant fight and battle from birth till death. When life is approached in that way, it will be empty of the joy you are so desperately seeking in the world. And, please, do not confuse passion with fighting. They are direct opposites. One leads you to disconnect from both your heartfelt dreams and other people. The other leads you, wonderfully, to a place of fulfillment. A place where you discover what it means to truly be a human being. Passion leads to freedom. Fighting leaves you imprisoned.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, March 24th, 2020 by Pete Koerner in THE BELIEF FORMULA

“While each thought is a prayer of sorts, and will be acted on in some way; we can effectively manage our energy and direct more of it in the direction of those thoughts that would bring the most beneficial effects into our lives. If we are thinking anyway, why not think creatively instead of destructively. Even when negative thoughts arise, there is no reason that we must focus on them. If we simply let them go, they will be replaced with new thoughts. If we focus our energies on positive thoughts, they will ultimately become our dominate thought patterns. If we achieve a state where the only thoughts we ever experienced were positive, or good, thoughts, then these are the things we will find filling our lives.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, March 23rd, 2020 by John Randolph Price in LIVING A LIFE OF JOY

“Why can’t we accept the fact that positive living is the natural way of life? For one thing, orthodox religion has told us something different, which means that we may have to do some deprogramming on ourselves. We have to move past the false teachings that tell us we’re a race of damned and doomed cosmic misfits who played with a garden snake, then learned a thousand years later that the only antidote, the only salvation, was a vicarious blood sacrifice. That notion didn’t come from Jesus.”
