Today's Affirmation
"Today I will purposefully learn something new."
Every day is an opportunity to learn something new.  Acquiring knowledge is a beautiful thing.  So, for today, seek out knowledge.  Look up a word you don't know or find out where Tunisia is or memorize the first line of the periodic tables.  Or find out the translation of a common word in another language.
Never let the opportunity to learn something new slip through your fingers.  Make a point to learn at least one new thing every day.  Imagine how much you can acquire by doing this.
Exercise your brain and activate your memory.  Keep yourself in the loop and seek out that which you do not know.
Com muinto amor,

Today's Affirmation
"Today I will recognize that I am an integral part of the whole cosmos."

Nothing can survive in isolation.  Neither man nor beast nor tree nor stream.  All are necessary for cosmic balance.
What we never consider is that the Universe, the cosmos (of which we are a part), is in perfect balance.  We don't consider it because we are so earth bound, so focused on traffic and jobs and struggle that all looks out of balance in our finite world.
But from a more universal perspective, all is in balance.  And all living things work cooperatively to create that balance.
Ironically, the only things out of balance are the individual lives of man.  Man overcomplicates his life.  Creates struggle where none should exist.
What is it about our species that thrives on disharmony??  Are happier because of it?  Healthier?  More in union with the Divine?  NO!  We are frustrated, angry, chaotic, ill, disgruntled.
Why should this be a way to live?  It shouldn't.
Begin recognizing that each of us is a part of something greater, wider, more cosmic than the chaos that swirls around us and tries to envelop us.  Begin recognizing that we are an integral part of the whole, not the whole itself.  Begin recognizing that we are connected to all other living things around us and the more we work cooperatively with our environment and the people in it, the more in harmony with ourselves and with the Universal Source of All That Is.
So, for today, shed your limited mind set and begin considering things from a more cosmic perspective.  You will begin to feel more alive and more vital and more connected to inner working of the entire cosmos.

Today's Affirmation
"Today I will stop surviving and start living!"

Today is the day to stop just surviving and start living.  Yes, this is a wake up call especially for you!  Yes, I am talking to you.

You have been plodding along, trying your best to make it through the day and then flopping into bed at night exhausted and spent.  You think, "What am I doing?  How am I going to make it through tomorrow if I barely made it through today?"

Well, here is your answer:  If you change your pattern of thought from survival to living then you will wake up each morning with a new goal, with a renewed vigor to LIVE!

Living is about recognizing that Universe is taking care of the things that you cannot take care of because you are overwhelmed.  Living is about shifting your focus from all of the things in your life that weigh you down to finding the beauty and love and joy that exists in your life.  You just haven't seen them because you have been too busy surviving and not living.  Living is about telling the most important people in your life how much you really love them and care about them and giving them the opportunity to tell you how much they love and care about you!

Today's Affirmation
"Today, I will remember that this too shall pass.  I will turn to Universal assistance to guide me through."

This too shall pass.  There is comfort in knowing that nothing lasts forever.  Our troubles, although difficult and sometimes painful, will eventually come to an end.

During this time of strife, turn to Universal guidance and assistance.  Embrace the comfort that Celestial help provides.  Ultimately, the trying times will end and balance will return.

In the times of balance, work on developing more effective coping skills.  Meditate.  Meditation is a wonderful vehicle to take the edge off and maintain personal, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual balance and health.

Sit quietly.  Be sure you have a few minutes to yourself and that you will not be disturbed.

Begin breathing deeply-in through your nose and out through your mouth.  Breathe in as deep as you can and hold the breath for about 3 or 4 seconds. 

Then slowly let it out.  Exhale all the breath.

As you breathe in, visualize beautiful white and cleansing light filling your body, cleansing your body, disintegrating any and all impurities, stress, worries, and anxieties.

As you exhale, visualize the release of all of the particles of impurities, stress, worry, and anxiety.

Feel your body relax and balance return.

Do this little exercise anytime.  There is always a few minutes in your day to realign your breathing and bring peace to yourself. 

Go always in the Light.

In Love and Light-Always,

Today's Affirmation
"I will ask the Universe for wisdom, understanding, and clarity."
It is true that if we ask, we shall receive.
Yes, there may be items we need to make our lives more comfortable, but what is essential, is what we need inside.
Ask Universe to provide wisdom, clarity, understanding.  Ask Universe to give you courage and strength to endure that will confronts you.
In you open your heart and ask, Universe will see to it that your requests are fulfilled.  You will begin to see signs of your answer. 
Situations will develop that offer opportunities to gain wisdom, to deepen understanding, and see with clarity.
When we commit ourselves to the betterment of our lives through gaining wisdom, all aspects of our lives begin to fall into place.
Actively work from the inside out.  Improving ourselves through the acquisition of wisdom, understanding, and clarity overflows into our external lives, and soon we begin to recognize changes and improvements.
So embrace the opportunity to gain wisdom and live a more enlightened life.
In Love and Light-Always,

Today's Affirmation
"Today, I will strive to uncomplicated my life and live simplistically."

Life is complicated enough without making it more so by the choices we make.

There is nothing wrong with a simple life.  In simplicity, there is beauty, and beauty brings us joy.

Make time to evaluate what is essential and what can be simplified by letting it go. 

There is no weakness in saying that you cannot take on any other projects or do someone a favor. 

In doing what others ask, you are simplifying their lives and complicating you own.  I am not saying that we doing favors for others is wrong.  No, I am saying that when are already tapped out, taking on additional tasks, especially tasks that are not truly our responsibility, overcomplicates our lives.

So, dear friends, shed extraneous commitments, tasks, projects, and don't feel bad about it either.  Your life and well being should come first for you.  Keep your eyes focused on a simple life, a simple existence.  Pursue simplicity and see the tremendous difference it makes for you.

"Simplicity!  Simplicity! Simplicity!"-Henry David Thoreau

There is wisdom here.  Embrace the wisdom and practice simplicity.

In Love and Light-Always,

Today's Affirmation
"Today I will cast off despair and reach out to my Higher Power."

When is enough, enough?  When are we going to stop making ourselves as miserable as possible?

Why do we need to make ourselves as miserable as possible?  What are we punishing ourselves for?  Do we really deserve this type of punishment?  Are we that terrible and horrible that we need to seek out disappointment and failure in order to prove to ourselves that we are?

STOP right there.  STOP!  STOP! STOP!

None of us deserves to live a life of failure because we think we deserve it!  None of us is that heinous that we deserve to punish ourselves over and over again.  None of us is wretched that we deserve to make ourselves miserable for the rest of our lives.

Look at yourself!  What do you see? 

I see a frail human being trying as hard as possible to live a good life.  I see a person with good intentions and a good heart who has lost hope, who has become lost.

Have you forgotten that Universe is on your side?  Have you let go of the cosmic assistance that is available to you?  Don't feel abandoned and alone, because you are not.

Reach out to you Higher Power.  Ask for rescue.  Ask for assistance. 

There are many things that are far larger than ourselves, and alone we flounder and fail.  But the Universe is vast and infinite, and within in this vast infinity, there is hope and goodness and healing and love, above all, love.

I know what you are thinking.  You are thinking, "How can I expect a cosmic Universal Higher Power to love me and care for me and help me when I cannot even love, care for or help myself?"

Ah, but there it is.  Universe knows exactly what you are thinking, what is in your heart, even far better than you do.

If someone told you you had a terrible disease, would you seek out help and healing?  One would hope so.  So, what is the difference?  Just because the illness is not physical, but spiritual, doesn't mean there is not a cure, doesn't mean that there is not help and healing.

Turn away from despair, and turn to the ultimate unconditional love in the cosmos-your Higher Power.  Put it all the hands of the Universe, and begin feel whole again, begin to live life again with all of the joy that you deserve.

In Peace, Love and Light-Always,
