FRESH WORKS! Every day offers us a fresh start, a new and vibrant beginning, if we can just proceed with a clear mind and an open heart, refusing to carry along the history and patterns of a tired past. Let us stretch to make today unique, singular, a one of a kind experience, like nothing lived previously, a day that stands out, rather than blending into a blurred memory. Perhaps, we laugh a little harder, we listen more intently, we look for the good to encourage and reinforce, possibly, we make someone's day with a kind word or gesture, or maybe, just forge ahead to render our forgotten dream a potential reality - anything fresh works!

NO STRINGS ATTACHED Let us touch our inner child today, returning home to the joy of make believe, the magic of mystery and the unexpected, letting go of our acquired inhibitions, allowing fantasy to become real. As we allow our inner child to reign today, let us realize within this perspective exists our true inspiration, our creative heart, our unexpected art, always pushing the constraints of our logic and decorum which often stunt us daily. So as we summon our inner child to take center stage, allow us to remember the process, recall the emotions, understand the significance of returning to when whatever was imagined, was capable of being, with no strings attached.

POSITIVE EXPANSION Today we have the capacity for growth, for positive expansion, simply by focusing our imaginations on the potential of life rather than its limitations, refusing to be held captive by its transitory events that steal our power and energy. Today we challenge this innate capacity by turning away from distortion and mayhem, choosing instead to reflect on the seeds of our positive becoming, on the sprout, with its fresh bud surpassing actual or perceived limitations. Let us proceed today fully committed to seizing our ample capacity for good, growth, and transcendence – turning towards the positive existence we are here to cocreate, knowing within this movement clarity will be obtained, as well as our rightful joy, peace, love, and happiness.

A COMMON ALLY When needed, the direction we seek is within, no wires or cables required, just a moment of active silence and a prayerful attention, an unedited allowing, a soulful trust in the true location of our founder. Listening like this, through the chaos and confusion surrounding us, within us, stretching, striving to interpret the tender words so calmly presented, let us not mistake this act of love for some pretense or false perception, being assured the answer will surface. Herein lies the opportunity for our existence, when requested with clear faith and unwavering belief, we each possess a common ally, ready and fully able to see us through the struggle, to bolster our perpetual becoming, to unveil our magnificence.

FOR LOVING ME Thank you for loving me through times of fear, concern, and struggle – always at my side to console, to support, to carry me, to find a way to calm my trembling spirit simply by taking my hand and forging onward. Thank you for loving me, even when I fail to love myself, as you gently hold a mirror to my true nature so I can see the truth of who I truly am and what I have to offer – for showing me, the me you love, so I understand my worth, my value. Thank you for loving me, and picking up my tired soul so I can see the life left to live; and by grasping your eternal strength, your perpetual hope, forge on towards better days, to thrive and flourish again, always safe within your loving gaze. Thank you for loving me! AT G. 2.14.2013 Continue reading

THE IMPLICATE ORDER OF GOD ALIVE In the beginning, there was the mind of God, purposeful, intentional, of the law and of the will, the cosmic mind of all consciousness, of all order, of all being, the observer of all existence, its vision, its perception, aware and alive, vibrational, powered by potential, directed by the desire for a more complete universe. All that is, exists within the parameters of this containment, as all local and non-local mind, consciousness and the matter of the perceivable universe: the earth, life as we know it, a manifestation of this conceptual framework, created by the mind and the consciousness of God, within the whole, the implicate order of God alive. In this sense, humanity, humankind is created, or manifested, in the image or conceptual nature of God, with human mind and consciousness at both the local and the non-local levels a reflection of God mind/consciousness - both being individually able to impact its own vision and the creation of the universe. In this sense, all physical existence is a product of the mind, powered still by the intentional, manifested at will with the energy of raw emotion. Within, this God universe and the human universe all continues, alive and thriving, as one. NOE G. 8.13.2017 9:00 AM Continue reading

MULTIPLIER OF GOOD Let us find our good within this day – a positive gesture, a child’s glee, a moment of sweet remembrance, an expression of gratitude – knowing at the heart of our existence is the genuine flow of divine love. Let us be an active agent of good in this day, always ready and able to extend our love to make this life an adventure, better, brighter, more appealing for those we encounter along the way – an accelerator of good. Let us understand fully that with each breath, every step, the force of good is the essence of all life – accepting our responsibility to protect it, nourish it, grow it, and harvest it in all we do – being a multiplier of good in the world and in this day.

JUST BEING Today, let's stop a moment, pausing, actionless, allowing our senses to take in the place and time we inhabit, focusing on the filling of our lungs, then breathing out, repeating the same, thoughtless, just being. As we tune into ourselves, listening to the last breath, then the next, let the natural calm dissipate the tension, as we release the stress wherever we have stored it, still pulsating, grasping it with our mental might, forcing it, releasing it up and outwards. This is our moment to be alive, let's savor it, fending off the ego's call to get serious and productive, we allow a final moment of refreshment, aware this respite is truly under our control, ours for the asking, tranquility, serenity, at our beck and call.

THE INVISIBLE LIFT At peace, let us experience the gifts of this day, spreading our wings so we may soar high above all that might have mistakenly captured our attention, and in this angelic flight pay heed to our own divinity. Here, high above, there is no reasonable doubt or question, just the sounds of life rushing around us, through us, a simple oneness, wholeness, unity – who are we to claim distinction as we admire this dance of angels. So now, as we stand perched, transfixed upon this peak of possibility, feeling the momentum surge within our awakened souls, with wings, fully stretched to grasp the invisible lift always present to carry us onward and upward.

ALLOWING WHAT IS Let go of the need to control today, allowing what is to be – to be – without tension, or angst, or upset, just a calm acceptance instead, knowing all is as it is meant to be, with or without your emotional upheaval. As you give up the need to control, feel the sanity return, your peace re-establish itself, as each breath finds a steady rhythm, feel your heart calm and a smile erupt, as your thinking clears, with you now ready for meaningful action. Today, with this new found equilibrium, let your passion reignite, your enthusiasm flare up, your enjoyment once more become contagious, as you lead the way for all to follow, free to focus on the doing, basking in the sheer pleasure of the actual, constructive, and the worthy task at hand.

Let us commemorate all we have accomplished to reach this point, to gain this perspective, to seriously prepare us for the move forward, to new heights, greater adventures, even more dazzling undertakings – always thankful for those who have aided our efforts along the way. Let us observe and recognize the values and faith that lights the way for our continued success, the positive thought, the clear intentions, the trust in divine good and abundance, the attitude of perpetual gratitude that summons further grace and continued well-being, as we scale ever-greater heights.

STRIVE TO ASCEND Today, in all things, we must strive to ascend, moving through and beyond what threatens to impede our progress, to mute our thriving, understanding our role is not to wallow in the dismal, but instead, transcend and flourish. Today, with every thought and action, let us find a higher frame of reference, a more tenable perspective, knowing even at the heart of our deepest regrets and unfathomable losses exists a way around, beyond, and onward. Today, let us set our sights towards the essential elements of a life truly worth living, stretching our hearts and souls to encompass the magnitude of the joy, peace, love, and happiness that is ours for the giving and the receiving, now and forever more.

WHOLE, COMPLETE, ROBUST Let us see the world as whole today, as complete, not as lacking or limited, but as total, one, creative, flowing, perfect – not as flawed or less than expected, but as robust, overcome with an earnest sincerity and purpose. Let us see others as whole today, as complete, not as vague attempts at being worthy or appropriate, or expected, but instead as robust, as vital, as becoming, striving – not as wanting but as ample, purposeful, authentic. Let us see ourselves as whole today, as complete – not as an unfinished symphony, a work in progress, a noble effort, but instead as God sees us, as wonderful, as total, a masterpiece, a work of art – worthy, robust, blossoming, cherished loved ones to be held in high esteem.

YOU BEING YOU Allow yourself to be you, all of you, fully you, the unique wonderful you, the loving tender you, the questioning doubtful you, the strong courageous you, the thoughtful you, the careful cautious you – the remarkable brilliant you. Refuse to alter, edit, control, lessen, or contain any aspect of you – knowing the world needs you now, the authentic you, the creative you, as a model of what is possible when the real you is able to thrive and shine. Today take your perfect you on the road, an expression of the amazing potential of a life lived with clear intentions, fully self-accepted and totally magnificent. AT G. 3.20.2014 Continue reading

THE DISTANT CALL WITHIN There are days when we cannot hold ourselves hostage to the duties, tasks, or agendas we have set in motion, but require instead a blank slate from which to create, an open field on which to traverse with a free abandon, no destination clearly in mind, no intended result. During these times, let us have the good sense to allow ourselves the leverage to sit back and listen to the distant call within, taking a moment to reflect on what might inspire us, or stir us to action, catapulting our existence. Today, let us realize it is the balance and equilibrium of authentic being that will secure our true harmony, a being that will evolve and grow only if we give it flexibility and space to thrive and flourish, to find its distinctive beat.

THE PERFECT PEACE Let all the issues and challenges of life that now encircle you, like a cylinder of hostile weather, a tempest of plots, subplots, and unsavory characters, take flight and appropriately spin in perpetuity, as you, in the safety of the calm center, disassociate, finding the hum of a quiet peace more appealing. Perhaps you are thinking, "this is a naive perspective, easier said than applied," – especially given the magnitude of your own spinning storms, but, what if you do have the power to spin or sit in peace, simply by choosing to do so. So today, practice letting the psychic mayhem twist around you, as you earnestly close your eyes, following your breath within, finding the serene lake of your soulful center, mirroring its tranquility, floating on its placid surface, until your peace finds you. AT G. 3.22.2014 Continue reading

THE EXTRA MILE Reach out and offer assistance today, lending a needed hand, stretching beyond the expected to go the extra mile – leading with compassion, goodwill, and an open heart. Be aware of what you might offer to lighten the load, provide support, or aid others in their undertakings – bolstering spirits with a renewed sense of camaraderie and teamwork – focusing on the doers rather than what gets done. Today work to be the light at the end of the tunnel, knowing your simple acts of kindness will motivate those who need it most – accelerating their progress towards the completion of key endeavors.

The guidance below, which is typical of the message I have received regarding our existing relationship with consciousness, reiterates the notion of a more robust and vital dimension than we may usually imagine; one that includes all time, all substance, all existence – past, present, or future. Since, in my New Thought perspective, God and consciousness are indistinguishable, with divinity and consciousness being one, the infrastructure for our existence and all existence, is, primarily, this field of consciousness. THE FIELD OF CONSCIOUSNESS Consciousness so vast, so connected, so intertwined, it is tidal with the ebb and flow of past, present, and future; thick with being; it blends and melds like a dense batter stirred by the very animation of being, as it reaches, stretches, presses to be more, to hold the content of life erupting, until it constructs the now we inhabit, a delicate blossoming present, formed of past and future unseen but always the essential fabric of this now, as it unfolds on: know this consciousness is a field of being twisting, billowing, with undulating life – all life that has lived, is living, or will live – seek to comprehend this connector of all being, all existence, all presence; this ocean of being.

FRIVOLITY Let laughter and fun be the order of the day, stepping back to enjoy the moment and those who are spending it with you, allowing frivolity to capture your thoughts and infiltrate your serious actions. As you do, realize laughter and fun are the essential lubricants for a productive workplace, quickly clearing away the friction produced by overwork, tension, stress, and continual pressure. So let go and enjoy this day, refreshing your soul and spirit with a heartfelt laugh, a well-placed joke, a bit of spontaneous fun, loosening up so others will follow suit – just watch as enthusiasm and creativity soar.

PATIENCE RECONSIDERED Patience is often a key ingredient lacking in our approach to modern life, the inner strength to allow the elements of a productive existence to settle, find their rightful place, and carry us to victory. Forced by our multitasking mania to wage war on all fronts of our to do list, let us realize that patience is essential to growing lasting solutions, insuring both sense and value are blended into our frantic endeavors. As we realize patience takes time, which is not mutable or relative in this context, let us proceed with a sane and time sensitive pace, aware that the rushed job is often the botched job, knowing full well why patience is considered a virtue.

A PERFECT POSSIBILITY Today be fully open to this perfect moment now, feel its richness, peer into its vastness, work to honor its delicate beauty, discover its potential – knowing you are truly blessed to be a part of its wholeness – alive and able to enjoy its offering. Dive into this perfect day without restraint, without caution, realizing only total and complete immersion, with every cell and fiber of your being participating in unison and harmony, ready to be one with all it has to offer and afford you. Let the perfect possibility of a day well and fully lived excite you, motivate you to push forward and ahead with all your being, investing your energy and enthusiasm to ensure your contribution expands the experience, intensifies its beauty, and nourishes its wonder.

AN IMPROVED VANTAGE POINT Let us widen our perspective today, making room for diverse, alternative, and even conflicting viewpoints, taking in both the familiar and unfamiliar, the tenable and untenable, as we sift through all the vantage points for the nuggets of truth and wisdom needed to progress. Our purpose in undertaking such an all-inclusive review, leaving no stone unturned, all sides and things considered, is to dislodge our often well entrenched, preconceived notions, which leave us stuck in the mud even before we begin. In this sense, it is true that an open mind is a brilliant mind, since pouring water through the bottom of the glass only results in an empty effort, while making room, freeing up space, allows for a refreshing opportunity, an immersion in the full possibilities presented.

ALL THAT IS NEEDED With a clear mind and a firm intention, nothing can stand in the way of our success or impede our progress, no errant thought or emotion can make us question our firm resolve, or push us off course. With our well intended goal in mind, let us proceed undaunted, realizing we have within us all that is truly needed to flourish, to reach out and take a firm grasp of our destiny. With this in mind, we take note of the depth of our courage, even as we must say goodbye to cherished allies, clearing our own path ahead, knowing all along it has been our tenacity that has been the foundation of our lasting achievement.
