It is really discontentment our egos use to spur us on, to get us what the ego thinks is rightfully ours. The trouble with being content is that our egos have an insatiable appetite, often stoked by our sense of lack, along with the fear of not getting our share. What if we could just stop, right here and now, saying - "I am content with what I have, who I am, and where I am in life. I have no need for more, I have all I want right now!" What would it take for us to do this? Is it possible? BEING CONTENT Let us be content with what we have and rejoice in our abundance, recognizing the gifts of a prosperous life have been given to us – providing for us so we may move forward, and live the message we have received. Let us be content with who we are - knowing we are fully prepared to do the work we are called to do – a perfect combination of talents, skills, ability, and positive attitude ready to transform our lives, the lives of others, and the world. Let us be content with where we are - perfectly poised to receive our greatest good, and in return, offer it back multiplied by our vision based in love – back to those who are waiting to receive – waiting to flourish – waiting to be touched.

Our greatest divinely inspired power is our creativity - where we are capable of harnessing the connection of our consciousness with the universal mind of God, reaching into a thought and creating a new form, a new approach, a new solution, a new work of art where none existed previously. The Affirmative Thought below titled Creative Flow offers us a reminder that our conditioned response is not always the best response, and that living on our creative edge brings passion, enthusiasm, and zeal to our lives. CREATIVE FLOW Today allow your creativity to flow without constraint or critique, pushing forward to exhibit and live a life beyond limits or preconceived notions – free to express your passion, your art, your new vision. Today allow your creativity to guide you – inspire you – enthuse you as you tackle the issues of the day seeing each in a new light, with a fresh perspective, knowing you have the inner power to transcend the mundane with creative confidence. Today allow your creativity to expand the possibilities and potentials for your life and the lives of those you love and encounter – expressing your art and talent for living, loving, and being magnificent.

GO WITHIN Today seek to maintain your inner balance even when the world is anything but tranquil or serene – go within to your calm center knowing you have the power to extend poise to the fray.

BEING OF ASSISTANCE Let us be of assistance today to the world – lend a hand, offer a smile, give a word of encouragement, reach out and touch someone’s heart, soothe a hurt, go the extra mile, simply show we care. Let us be of assistance today to ourselves – let go of the fear, doubt, and worry replace it with peace, poise, and purpose – thank ourselves for all we are, all we are capable of handling – recognize, encourage, and praise ourselves for the value we bring to the world and all we do. Let us be of assistance today to God by evolving, expanding, and participating in the positive creation of life - by fostering love, peace, joy, and happiness as the goal of our existence, with heaven on earth as our destination.

OUR CREATIONS Our lives are personal creations where we must choose the content, and whether we ourselves will apply the brush strokes of living color, or by default allow others or fate, or circumstance to paint the canvas of our lives. Our lives are our creations – one of a kind, unique works of art – let us return to the easel today prepared to apply our vision of the life we have always been ready to live – with each bold stroke of thick intention let us marvel at our magnificence. Our lives are our creations so let us create ourselves as we were meant to be – born to be – perfect, powerful, and purposeful, overflowing with joy, peace, love, and happiness – ready to reach our true divine potential.

BEING Today let us focus on being rather than becoming – reflecting on and centering ourselves in the strength and substance of the life we now inhabit – knowing we have already arrived. Today let us encourage and support this being by realizing the magnificence and beauty that being offers – a spark of creative genius in physical form – a work of art to exhibit proudly and triumphantly. Today let us be this being – not some dream, or wish, or expectation – not some illusion based on comparison to others – just this wonderful, purposeful, and perfect being – celebrating this being in the world! AT G. 4.20.2012 Continue reading

CLAIM RESPONSIBILITY Today let us claim responsibility for our lives - accepting that what we conceive within our personal consciousness is reflected in the mirror of our existence – knowing our thoughts and attitudes create our life experience. Today let us claim responsibility for our thoughts – working to deflect the mental chaos, the chaotic chatter, and the egos warnings – replacing them instead with affirmative, positive, loving, and self-empowering thoughts and visions until we imagine a world within, so appealing it takes root in our experience. Today let us claim responsibility for our words, our actions, and our day–to–day interactions with others to ensure only positive, affirming, life-giving energy is conveyed and shared with the world we create and reflect.

FLOWERING Like a seed, our God granted greatness waits to crack through the shell of our consciousness, touch the fertile earth and with full vision, growing gently to our unfolding splendor. Today, let us choose to break through our cracking seed, encouraging the sprouts of our potential to push the earth away and grow in the warm light of a new day – to bask in its opportunity – to be drenched in the quenching flow of the blooming of fresh life. All existence waits for this moment, to celebrate the flowering of our perfection - to marvel at the sheer magic of our magnificence, to wonder at the origins of our unique beauty.

Each of us through our desire and intentions must propel the change we wish to happen in our world – our thoughts fueled by strong emotion lay the foundation and provide the spark but our own inner vision must provide the plan. Let us commit ourselves to be this change – to be this creative force for good – for the potential greatness that sits beneath the surface of our lives – of our joint living and being – knowing we are worthy of this glory. Know and believe that in our individual and joint efforts, we hold the key to changing and evolving all creation – humankind and all life – by the simple force of our hearts and wills, combined and joined for good.

CREATIVE CONTROL Today, let us realize that we are each in control of our individual life creations – knowing we have, through our thoughts, intentions, and desires brought this life we experience now into tangible form and have the power to make adjustments via the same creative process. Today, looking at our creations, let us assess what is now existing - determining what works well and what may require an adjustment or even a radical new approach - knowing the skills to do both exist within us all. Today, let us open ourselves up to the power of purposeful change that we possess – the creative power of our minds teamed with divine support. AT G. 3.29.2012 Continue reading

THIS DAY ON FIRE Let us set this day on fire with a passion and energy, pushing forward with positive momentum, lost in the pleasure of pure Flow – one with ourselves, clear in intent, ready for purposeful action. Let us set this day on fire, knowing we have all it takes and are fully prepared to push past the ordinary and succeed at the extraordinary – engaged at full throttle knowing this is our time, our place, and our opportunity. Let us set this day on fire, being a positive spark for all we encounter – igniting their imaginations and potential – propelling them to greater heights, as we scale together a life well lived.

In his masterpiece The Perennial Philosophy, Aldous Huxley makes a statement that seems to succinctly state the current spiritual condition of humankind for me: It is because we don't know Who we are, because we are unaware that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us, that we behave in the generally silly, often insane, the sometimes criminal ways that are so characteristically human. We are saved, we are liberated and enlightened, by perceiving the hitherto unperceived good that is already within us, by returning to our eternal Ground and remaining where, without knowing it, we have always been. Every day we can take a small but vital step towards opening the door to our heaven on earth by ensuring we focus on experiencing the peace, love, joy, and happiness that surrounds us, waiting for our attention. Here is an Affirmative Thought to remind us. SIMPLE PLEASURES Today let us realize the multitude of possibilities to experience peace, love, joy and happiness from the simple pleasures of life – from the small moments – from the tender gestures – from this opportunity for living. Today let us embrace our own potential for full and complete living, where we embrace our own becoming – connect with our true purpose, allowing ourselves to live without constraints or conditions. Today let us shake off the malaise – clearing our minds of any fears, doubts, or worries and, step with confidence, into the life of our dreams – ablaze with the passion of unharnessed living: of perfect life alive.

THE PERFECT FIT Allow yourself to be you today – truly you without the persona seen as you – be the real you, the vibrant you, the authentic you, the unmasked you - free to live without restrictions or interpretations. Allow yourself to be you today - without editing or directions, free from self-imposed expectations or prior conditioning – the you who has stayed in the backroom – behind the curtain – waiting for this moment to arrive. Allow yourself to be you today – put on this real life and feel the perfect fit – sense how easily you move about – effortlessly – unencumbered – free in the complete ease of being just you.

I find myself intrigued by the Meditation Guidance below titled The Mirrored Soul, which indicates that our authentic self-exists fully formed within God consciousness, working to guide us towards the full realization of our potential. If this is accurate, then it is plausible we do come into this world with a "soul mission" or "calling" that we must in some way ascertain and somehow reflect through living. THE MIRRORED SOUL Within God consciousness resides the divine image of you, reflected and conceived in perfect oneness – the divine you, the concept of you in full potential, the God you, the final and complete design of you – the sincere soul of pure God identity, the blueprint, the model, the destination of authentic purposeful being. Our divinity – our God self – our atman resides in the total and universal consciousness of God – fully aware of the past, actively working with us in the present, knowledgeable of the potential and possibilities resulting from present choice points. This divine reflection has and will always exist and is ever present and active in our lives moving us through our separation and limited perspective, our ego desires and indoctrination, towards a connection with the true potential of our existence. We move towards and connect with our divine image – our reflection of perfect life – our God nature through prayer and deep meditation – through envisioning, dreaming, and clairvoyance. Work to connect with, and be guided by, your divine based self within God consciousness, knowing this is the road to enlightenment – true heaven on earth. NOE G. 2.23.2012 9:24 AM WITH LOVE, G.

A LIFE ON FIRE Open your heart to the full depth of the life that waits for you to reach out and grasp its wonder – to reveal its magnificence, allowing it to enfold you, overcome you, become you. Open your spirit to the complete potential of the life that waits for you to shake off the comfortable, to forsake the familiar, and dive into the vibrant possibilities of dreams uncharted, experiences yet imagined, adventures waiting to be explored. Open your being to the exquisite passion of a life well lived – a life on fire with enthusiastic emotion – complete commitment – and total unrelenting abandon. AT G. 3.6.2012 Continue reading

MINOR ADJUSTMENTS Often life only requires minor adjustments to be more aligned with our needs, to be more effective, more pleasing or appealing – to fit less snug or loose, just a tweak here, a snip there and the former “its ok” becomes “just right.” Often these minor adjustments require a new approach to what we expect from our lives, a fresh perspective on what is really essential for our well being or progress, a new thought, a clearer vision - a more thorough assessment. Often all it takes is this simple magic of a few minor adjustments and our world will fall into balance, our doubts overcome, and our faith in positive outcomes restored. AT G. 3.4.2012 WITH LOVE, G.

EASTER THOUGHT This Easter morning open your eyes and consciousness to a fresh way of living – unthought of or considered previously – radical – unanticipated – through the act of creative thinking, see a new vision, pushing you towards your life fully alive. This Easter Morning roll away the stone and release the wonder of the real you – roll away the stone made up of fear, doubt, worry, and the expectations of your ego – letting your soul dance in the freshness of a new day. This Easter morning resurrect the joy, peace, love, and happiness that has always been yours to claim – grasp it with your full and renewed intention – revitalized – energized – propelled by your own magnificence.

JESUS AS CHRIST Through love, Jesus obtained the power of God and became Christ. As Christ, he used this power to overcome death and manifested a force of love so powerful it moved through infinite space and time and changed all creation. This power of love, existing for all of us throughout the ages is called salvation. Jesus as Christ – showing us the way to God with the power of this love connection has become the savior of humankind – his power always present – always available – his path always available for us to follow. Jesus as Christ who obtained the power of God manifested rebirth and overcame the physical limitations of the body – moving beyond the limitations of human thought to the divine thought of God, where regeneration and rebirth are divinely possible and plausible. Jesus as Christ, with the power of God, obtained through love is God’s gift to all mankind – God revealing through Christ the true power available for man – infinite power built on faith through love. Infinite power to create heaven here on earth, if we can understand the way, the path through God. Jesus as Christ guided us that the way to God is through love and a personal connection with God; with infinite divine love. Just as he did, we have the ability to become God-like by obtaining the power of God through love. Jesus as Christ is God showing us the way to God, highlighting our ability, through love and a connection with God – of overcoming the limitations of the human mind – the power to evolve to our rightful status as the true sons and daughters of God.

THE ANSWERS The answers you seek are within you at the level of your soul – existing as part of the divine spark, which motivates you to ask the questions – while already knowing the answers – doing so, to assist with your growth, development, and transformation. The answers you seek are presented in every real-life experience – each lesson – a living dream with meaning – directing you to discover the intended message – a revelation – an obvious clue enabling you to unravel the mystery of your authentic spiritual potential. The answers you seek may appear before even the question has been formed within your conscious mind – so simply ask: “What message does this life experience convey, what am I to understand?” and the true meaning will be revealed.

THE PRECISION There is a precision to this life that is beyond human comprehension – an intricacy, a measured design, a blueprint based in magnificence, in splendor, in the divine. Reflect on this precision today, its coordination, its system, its flow; imagining the power, the intelligence capable of setting life in motion, mobilizing it on a daily basis, energizing its unfolding, recreating its eternal, infinite propulsion. With awe, contemplate this precision, stretching awareness to encompass the whole vision of an intricate oneness, an infinite number of vibrant, living particles infused into a solitary, connected entity, an orchestrated wonder, purposeful being, realizing the true nature of this, your existence.

WHAT IS TRULY AUTHENTIC Often life forces us to reach deep inside and grasp what is truly authentic – what is our true mission, our devout purpose – forces us to inspect it one more time as we remember all the times before we have had the same encounter – forces us to mull over its possibilities, consider its requirements, ponder the strength needed to accept it fully – forces us to envision the leap of pure faith needed to live this way, be this way, and assess our courage to look it in the eye, pull it close and surrender to its will.

BEING STILL When life is at a standstill follow its lead, quiet your rambling mind, harness your expectations, and allow yourself to regenerate – to renew – in the calm of a quiet - unencumbered moment - at peace. When life is at a standstill follow its lead – let go of the striving – the expectations – the need to occupy your mind, listening instead to the “still small voice” of your true self – let your divine nature assist you with finding your way, your health, your vitality, your enthusiasm. When life is at a standstill – be still – focusing on the present and what it has to offer you – a blank slate – an empty canvas waiting for your next creation to appear.

Life exists in the present moment, muddled for many of us by our mental preoccupation with our wandering minds – entrenched in a Psychic Entropy that leaves us whirling in thoughts of mishap and misfortune, trapped in a waking nightmare. The way back, or better stated as the way back to the present is through our focus on mindfulness, staying connected and aware of the here and now. This is where life, love, God, our heaven on earth resides, waiting for us to seize the present opportunity. THIS PRESENT OPPORTUNITY Let us accept this moment now with total heart and soul – fully alive and fresh with the multitude of possibilities waiting for each of us to gather our senses and join in – immersing ourselves in the joyous experience of living. Let us embrace this moment now without reservation or expectation, but instead learn its dance, sing its tune, allowing it to overtake our fears or concerns, so we can frolic in its pure splendor – drunk with the wine of God’s creation. Let us unfold with this moment now, letting go and letting God reveal the authentic divine soul within, pulsing through every heartbeat – expressed with every breath – waiting to be realized in this present opportunity.
