BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, September 22nd, 2017 by John Randolph Price in LIVING A LIFE OF JOY

“Take a moment and think about who and what you are. What is there not to love?

The body? Love it as your communications vehicle on the physical plane and your love will maintain the visible form in the energy of love. The personality? Love it and watch how it changes to mirror that love.

The Divine Consciousness of your essential Self? That’s the full embodiment of universal love—the very Self expression of God. Can you not love God expressing as you?

You are a great, grand magnificent being, the sum-total of all the cosmic energies individualized as the being you are. Love the completeness of yourself, then turn your gaze to the one closest to you and see another super-being, and continue the rollout of your vision until you see everyone as the very Selfhood of God in individual expression.”

John Randolph Price, in “Living a Life of Joy”

PONDER on THIS for Thursday, September, 21st, 2017 by Sanaya Roman in SPIRITUAL GROWTH

“Your Higher Self is always sending you suggestions and ideas to keep you flowing in the higher current and linked with the Higher Will. These suggestions are very gentle. You are rarely asked to make radical changes without many suggestions of simpler changes first. Sometimes insights about changes you need to make may be quite surprising. However, your Higher Self will show you how to create these changes using your current skills, resources, and capabilities.

Take time to relax and become aware of your inner messages. Do you give yourself a good balance between times when you are quiet and able to think and times when you are busy and active? If you are active all day long, continually pouring out energy, do you allow yourself “breathing spaces”? If you don’t feel that these two states are in balance, what one thing could you do today or tomorrow to bring them into balance? Taking time to be quiet and listen to your thoughts and feelings is just as important as all your busyness.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, September 20th, 2017 by Deepak Chopra in THE WAY OF THE WIZARD

“Think of the railroad track as time. Our narrow sense of time is directly tied to our narrow beliefs. A pessimist believes that nothing will turn out right, which provides a single-minded model for the future. An idealist believes that higher values will prevail, and that too is a model of the future. When the pessimist meets with good luck or the idealist with less than ideal results, both will prefer their models over reality. This is not to criticize the usefulness of the models but to show that they are less than real. Instead of meeting the present moment head-on, we are living backward in time, using our project futures to guide us in our present actions…

Instead of falling prey to your subconscious, which is constantly impelling you to embrace a future that is predictable, you can seize control of your talent for projection. Live the highest ideal now. See a future based on the belief that you are cared for in the universe, that you are growing toward higher consciousness, that love, truth, and self-acceptance are already yours. You do not have to achieve these states in order to live them now. Living them now is how you will achieve them.”

Deepak Chopra, in “The Way of the Wizard”

PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 by Paul Ferrini in THE SILENCE OF THE HEART

“The door to the Divine Presence opens through your heart. It opens through your kindness to yourself. It opens through your gentle acceptance of yourself in any moment. It opens through your embrace of your experience, through your willingness to be with whatever is happening in this moment.

The door to the Divine Presence opens through your kindness and gentle acceptance of others as they are in this moment. It opens through your willingness to be with them whatever they are thinking and feeling without judging them or trying to fix them. It opens through the attention and the blessings you freely and heartfully extend toward others.

The door to the Divine Presence opens through your simple remembrance of God in any moment.”

Paul Ferrini, in “The Silence of the Heart”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, September 18th, 2007 by Debbie Ford in THE DARK SIDE OF THE LIGHT CHASERS

“Your outer shell is the you that faces the world. It hides the characteristics that make up your shadow. Our shadows are so well disguised that we often show the world one face when, in fact, the exact opposite is really within us.

Some people wear a layer of toughness that hides their sensitivity, or a mask of humor to cover up their sadness. People who know it all are usually covering up feelings of stupidity, while those who act arrogantly have yet to reveal their insecurity. The cool people are hiding the geek within, and the smiling face, an angry one.

We have to look beyond our social masks in order to discover our authentic selves. We are masters of disguise, fooling others but also fooling ourselves. It’s the lies we tell ourselves that we need to decipher. When we’re not completely satisfied, happy, healthy, or fulfilling our dreams we know these lies are in our way. This is how we recognize our shadow at work.”
