BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, June 23rd, 2017 by Paul Ferrini in THE SILENCE OF THE HEART

“It is spiritual pride to think that you are any further on the journey than anyone else. Even if this were true, it would not serve you to know it or claim it. What serves you is compassion for self, compassion for others. What serves you is knowing that each person has the lesson that is perfect for him and, if he learns it, there is no telling how far he will advance.

Don’t think you have the capacity to make a correct determination of the spiritual progress of any individual, including yourself. You don’t. You don’t know. One who seems to be far behind can move ahead in a flash. And one who seems ahead can be seriously disabled. The whole idea of ahead and behind is meaningless, since you don’t know where the starting line is or the finish line…You can look at others and think you understand, but you will just be kidding yourself. You have no idea what anyone else’s life is about. Nor is it really any of your business to know.”

Paul Ferrini, in “The Silence of the Heart”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, June 22nd, 2017 by Rhonda Byrne in THE SECRET

“Competition is an example of separation. First, when you have thoughts of competition, it is coming from a lack mentality, as you are saying there is a limited supply. You are saying there is not enough for everybody, so we have to compete and fight to get things. When you compete you can never win, even if you think you won. By the law of attraction, as you compete you will attract many people and circumstances to compete against You in every single aspect of your life, and in the end you will lose. We are all One, and so when you compete, you compete against You. You have to get competition out of your mind and become a creative mind. Focus only on your dreams, your visions, and take all competition out of the equation.”

Rhonda Byrne, in “The Secret”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, June 21st, 2017 by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in YOUR SACRED SELF

“Make an inner commitment to establish a new relationship with truth. The way to make this happen is to catch yourself when you are exaggerating or deceiving anyone, including yourself. Then silently tell yourself that you were about to puff yourself up by overstating the truth. Decide to simply relate exactly what happened—no more, no less—and see how that feels.

You will discover as you catch yourself immediately before the lie, that you are consulting your higher self, which flourishes in truth instead of giving in to ego demands to be false. You will enjoy a deeper, richer experience of life that feels refreshing compared with the phony presentation of yourself seeking approval.”

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “Your Sacred Self”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, June 20th, 2017 by Daniel Ryan in HEALING FROM HEAVEN

“Many spiritual seekers seek enlightenment in this world. Ironically, it’s the seeking or attempting to obtain the spiritual that makes this realm so elusive. The path is always unfolding perfectly, and all the effort can become a silver cage. Setting the intention to evolve and surrendering to your soul’s intention is a very powerful thing to do. The Eastern yin and yang principle of balance is an excellent analogy to convey this concept. The doing actually equates to resistance to allowing the divine energy of the universe to express itself through you. Thus, actively seeking creates an imbalance. It closes down our natural portal to the divine.”

Daniel Ryan, in “Healing from Heaven”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, June 19th, 2017 by Stuart Wilde in SILENT POWER

“What is normally considered to be power is not real power at all. Chasing money, glamour, sex; wanting control over others—political and military power—are all manifestations of the ego. They are often glorified forms of showing off; they dwell in the currency of the ego, and they often appeal only to other egos, so they are subject to people’s whims. A person can be rich and successful and still be very weak. Money doesn’t give you real strength; it just keeps you comfortable while you experience your dysfunction.”
