BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, April 14th, 2021 by Wayne W. Dyer in THERE’S A SPIRITUAL SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM

“Always remember that you are connected eternally to God. You are a divine creation, and you do not want to fear your divinity any longer. You do not have to perform to anyone else’s standard to be loved; you are loved unconditionally. You do not have to be mistake-free; you are always loved. You do not have to win; you are loved regardless of the outcome or the score.

All the reasons that you have adopted to hate yourself are the result of a rigid belief that your ego is the dominant force in your life. Your ego believes you are separate from everyone else, and separate from God. Thus, that ego is always judging, evaluating, and comparing you to others. When you don’t measure up, you engage in self-contempt. Then you review how many times you failed and turn those self-perceived failures into self-hate.

As a spiritual being, you do not have to perform, compare, win, or anything else. Your worthiness is a given. You are a piece of God. Always connected. Remind yourself of this truth whenever you resort to any form of self-hatred.”

Wayne W. Dyer, in “There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, April 13th, 2021 by Fr. Anthony DeMello in THE WAY TO LOVE

“Compare the serene and simple splendor of a rose in bloom with the tensions and restlessness of your life. The rose has a gift that you lack; it is perfectly content to be itself. It has not been programmed from birth, as you have been, to be dissatisfied with itself, so it has not the slightest urge to be anything other than it is. That is why it possesses the artless grace and absence of inner conflict that among humans is only found in little children and mystics.”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, April 12th, 2021 by Jackson Browne in FOR A DANCER

“Keep a fire for the human race
Let your prayers go drifting into space
You never know what will be coming down.

Perhaps a better world is drawing near
And just as easily it could all disappear
Along with whatever meaning you might have found
Don’t let the uncertainty turn you around
Go out and make a joyful sound

Into a dancer you have grown
From a seed somebody else has thrown
Go out ahead and throw some seeds of your own
And somewhere between the time you arrive
And the time you go
May lie the reason you were alive
But you’ll never know.”

Jackson Browne, in the song “For A Dancer”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, April 9th, 2021 by William L. Murtha in DYING FOR A CHANGE

Will Murtha: So the only object blocking our own creativity is our mind?

Voice of Higher Presence: Or the thoughts and constant static that roll through your mind. Clear a lot of the unnecessary mind stuff from your head, and you will soon discover the secret of becoming a fully creative being. All you ever need to do is to get out of the way and let the life force work through you. Artists, sages, spiritual teachers and masters know this truth. They appreciate that they must first step aside, get out of the way, shut down the mind static, and then let the divine life force work through them. Healers are also familiar with this divine process. They instinctively know that all healing is not directly attributable to a special gift that they own. Healing is present because healers learn that they are only the transformers in the whole process. They are the conduits, which offer pure grace and compassionate love.

Will Murtha: It all seems too simple. That would mean that we, as human bodies, are nothing more than a physical channel.

Voice of Higher Presence: You are drawing closer to the truth here. You are beginning to see that we are all paintbrushes in this whole cosmic picture. The way that you brush your strokes and choose your colors determines the kind of the life picture you create.

William L. Murtha, in “Dying for a Change”

BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, April 8th, 2021 by Stuart Wilde in AFFIRMATIONS

“To get to the next space, to your goal, you have to travel through the one you are in. It is almost as if the thoughts you usually have must be used up or worn out before you can make changes. How often have you affirmed a new intention and found yourself bogged down in old patterns? This is because the old ways are tough to dismiss. It takes patience. That is why the great dramas of your life are so useful. Dramatic events have a way of clearing the path of debris. After such experience, you may feel lost and exhausted and beat up because your ego has taken a royal bashing and was forced to retreat. But in the wake of the drama, a space occurs that allows new understanding to filter in and growth to occur.”

Stuart Wilde, in “Affirmations”
