Seven Wonders of the World

A group of students were asked, What are the Seven Wonders of the World?  Of course the right answer is:  The Great Pyramid of Giza, The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, The Statue of Zeus at Olympia, The Temple of Artemis at Ephesis, The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, Colossus of Rhodes, and the Pharos Lighthouse of Alexandria.

But one little girl raised her hand in disagreement and said, I think The Seven Wonders of the World are to see, to hear, to touch, to taste, to feel, to laugh, to love.

There are Seven Wonders of the World right where you are.  You are in the midst of them. You are a wonder of the world.

Celebrating You,

 

Love Is What You Are

Love is what you are – in your essence, in your deepest core.  You are never separate from love.  But often, from living in fear, your body will close to the feelings of love; your heart will close in protection.

But closure is not a final state.  Love is like a rose, opening in bloom. The bud is tight, protected, contained – yet its destiny is to open and blossom, to unfold its fragrance for all to enjoy.

Today, be willing to feel the love in your heart.  You don’t need someone else in order to feel the love that you are.  Invite love to expand and to bloom in offering.  You are that love you long for!

To Unfolding Love,

 

Sail Boldly Onward

There’s an old saying that goes,  No wind is favorable to the sailor with no destination in mind. (Unknown)

You see, this day you are setting your sails into the great wind of life through your intention.  If you don’t know where you’re going and you have no destination in mind, you won’t know how to guide the ship that is the vessel of your life.

What would you say are the three most important things to you right now?  Set your sail – your intention – by those three important values.

At the end of the day, you’re the only one who gets to choose your direction.  No wind is favorable to the one with no destination in mind.  What will yours be?

Sail Boldly Onward,

 

Open the Doors of the Divine

In India, there lived a revered saint by the name of Ramakrishna.

He was devoted to the Divine Mother.  People came from everywhere to seek his wisdom.

One day, a very old woman came to sit at Ramakrishna’s feet.  She said, Ramakrishna, my time is short on this earth.  I fear that I have never known the divine.  I fear death.  I’m too old to start a spiritual practice now.  What should I do?

Ramakrishna thought for a moment and asked her, What do you love?

The old woman immediately lit up.  I love my little grandson!  He is everything to me.

There is your spiritual practice, said Ramakrishna. Love him, and see the divine in him.

It only takes loving one person, in one instant, to open the doors of the divine.  This is how to create a magnificent and meaningful life, at any age.

To Loving Greatly,

What you Focus on Expands

Have you ever noticed that what you focus on, you start to see more of?

If you’re hungry, you start noticing the restaurants on the street. If you want to buy a new red sports car, all of a sudden you see little red sports cars everywhere.

What you focus on expands. Most of us have a tendency to focus on what’s missing and what’s wrong because we want to fix what’s missing and we want to fill what’s wrong. A much more powerful way of doing this is to focus on what is right and what is here. Because in truth, there really is nothing missing except in your perception.

So right now, in your life, what can you be grateful for? What can you appreciate? What about this amazing universe do you love?

Focus on appreciation and gratitude today and you will find that you are attracting to you by the Law of Attraction, much more of the good that is yours by divine right. Have a great day appreciating and being grateful!

Love,

The Holy Instant of the Universe

In A Course in Miracles there is a reference to something called the Holy Instant.

The Holy Instant is this very moment. All the possibility for a miracle, all the possibility for breakthrough, all the possibility for creativity, invention, healing, transformation…Everything is contained in this Holy Instant.

Imagine walking through this day realizing that moment by moment, you are in the Holy Instant of the Universe. There is nothing blocking you from unlimited good except your own sense of separation. That means the only thing you really need to heal is your sense of separation from Life.

Today, you are in the Holy Instant. You are right where a shift to greater good is possible. You are right where all possibility is. Open to that.

Believing in You,

Anchor Your Mind in Abundance

Hold the thought of wholeness even in the presence of what appears to be absence in your life.

Remember, absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence. Your circumstances do not define your possibilities.

If you can shift your perception through a daily gratitude practice and anchor your mind in abundance, then you will re-pattern your thinking and start to see evidence of the abundance that is everywhere present.

When you recognize abundance everywhere and align with it, you call it into your experience. Disregard the current condition and align with abundance.

Align Powerfully,

Notice What You’re Grateful For

When you have a negative thought, treat it like an ash that has popped out of the fire and landed on your jacket — flick it off right away and it won’t burn you!

Thoughts of doubt, worry and fear are not something you want to take over your consciousness. The moment you spot them, flick them off and go back to noticing what you’re grateful for.

Celebrating You,

Flow with the Good

Just like when traveling down a river, if you’re working with the current, it takes much less personal effort to move forward. Sometimes you can even set your paddle down and be swept ever-so-merrily along!

The truth is, when you’re working against the flow, you are using what’s called will power, your little human power. It is minuscule; a mere pygmy version of what you are capable of when you are aligned with the flow!

When you desire and expect good, you are empowered. When you adjust your desire and expectation to the flow of good, then nothing but good can come. The river of Life aligns you with the good, and you flow right into it.

Flow with the Good,

There is Always More Good…

Evolutionary biology is showing that it is often the highly cooperative species, not the highly competitive, that survive dramatic shifts.

Instead of believing that there’s only limited supply in the world – and that you have to fight for the good stuff, start by understanding that there is an abundance of good.

You know why?

It’s because you are here to contribute the good inside you! There is always more good, because there is always more to give.

You increase your own good and the good of your family, community, and the world when you give your gifts. There are no limits to the amount of good you can experience!

To Your Increasing Good,
