Daily Insprirational Quote October 1 2014

“Five minutes, just before going to sleep, given to a bit of directed imagination regarding achievement possibilities of the morrow, will steadily and increasingly bear fruit, particularly if all ideas of difficulty, worry or fear are resolutely ruled out and replaced by those of accomplishment and smiling courage.” – Frederick Pierce

The minute the lights are out and we’re alone with our thoughts, some of us worry about everything under the sun; unfortunately, this is the worst time to succumb to negative thinking. When we are beginning our journey into the realm of dreams yet still conscious, the power to manifest is greatly magnified. The next time you catch yourself fretting in the dark, stop! Better yet, make it your habit to fantasize about all you desire as you’re drifting off. Visualize yourself happy, radiant, successful and peaceful, and you’ll wake in the morning programmed to fulfill your highest dreams.

Don’t Blame

Don’t blame your situation. Accept it, deal with it, transcend it and create something more positive.

Don’t blame anyone else. Embrace responsibility, and put yourself in position to make a difference.

When you look for someone or something to blame, you have to look backwards. You’re much better off looking at the way forward.

Raise everyone’s expectations by moving beyond the question of blame. Look for ways to make progress instead of ways to make excuses.

You now have an opportunity to do something positive. Rather than blaming someone, you can benefit everyone.

Put your energy where it will do the most good. Make the smart choice to leave the blame behind as you lead your whole world forward.

Daily Inspirational Quote September 30 2014

“It is not our abilities that show what we truly are. It is our choices.” – Professor Dumbledore to Harry in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

Anyone can be psychic, but not everyone who is psychic is a healer. Whether we use our healing hands or our healing words in helping others, the bottom line is whether new well-being results. It’s one thing to enter psychic realms out of curiosity, and another to devote ourselves to doing the work of Spirit in the world. That devotion is far more powerful than mere ability, and far more rare.

Good Enough

If you don’t have time to get it all done, get some of it done. If you’re not able to do it perfectly, do it the best you can.

It’s great to visualize an ideal world. Always keep in mind, though, that you must live in the real world as it is.

Conditions are never going to be perfect, so stop waiting endlessly for them to be. The fact is, you can arrange for conditions to be good enough, and then go forward with what you have.

Aim for perfection, but don’t let that stop you from working with reality. Live according to your highest vision, and also with practical, common sense.

Climb to the top of the mountain and get a clear view of the big picture. Then commit yourself to taking care of all the little details, filling that big picture with living richness.

See life as the best it can be, and live life as it comes to you. That will keep you always moving in a positive, fulfilling direction.

— Ralph Marston
