Sonnet V.

Those hours, that with gentle work did frame The lovely gaze where every eye doth dwell, Will play the tyrants to the very same And that unfair which fairly doth excel: For never-resting time leads summer on To hideous winter and confounds him there; Sap cheque'd with frost and lusty leaves quite gone, Beauty o'ersnow'd and bareness every where: Then, were not summer's distillation left, A liquid prisoner pent in walls of glass, Beauty's effect with beauty were bereft, Nor it nor no remembrance what it was: But flowers distill'd though they with winter meet, Leese but their show; their substance still lives sweet.

WORK IS LOVE MADE VISIBLE




Success in its highest and noblest form
calls for peace of mind, enjoyment, and happiness.
This comes only when you find the work that you like best.

If you enjoy what you do, you'll be successful.
If you don't enjoy what you do, you won't be successful.
Your success in any occupation depends on your enjoyment.
Loving your work will make all the difference.

You'll never achieve real success unless you like what you're doing.
Your chances for success will be directly proportional
to the degree of pleasure you derive from what you do.
If you have a job you hate, face the fact squarely and get out.
Work is reward, not punishment.

You don't pay the price for success.
You enjoy the price of success.

It's A Beautiful Day!

Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"It's a beautiful day. Don't let it get away."
--Bono

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What beauty can I notice today, something I never noticed
before?"


Make this a balancing day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today is an opportunity for balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today is all we have. The past and future are helpful
reference points, but we can only live TODAY. It is an
opportunity. It is an opportunity for balance. It is also
an opportunity for anything else we wish to learn or achieve
or experience. A wonderful variation on this affirmation is
"Today is an opportunity." Another variation is to replace
the word "balance" with another word or phrase, for example,
a synonym (e.g., evenness, harmony, effortlessness) or a
place for balance to show up (e.g., in my job, in my life,
in the world).

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I encourage you today (the last day of the month) to play
with this idea of balance. As you walk, you may notice how
your weight shifts and balances itself on the right and then
the left. As you talk, listen to the cadence of your voice.
Notice the evenness of thoughts as they flow through your
mind. Let EVERYthing be an opportunity for balance. Embody
balance.

"clarity." So, be certain to identify an over-arching
intention about clarity. Your intention may change, but is
essential for guiding your actions. You might consider WHAT
you want to be clear about or HOW to enhance your clarity.

"Sharing"

leende barn
True happiness is found not in possessions, but in sharing what one has
with others. Thus is one's self-identity expanded, as he learns to
live in, and enjoy, a greater reality.

People who gladly share with others feel themselves bathed by a constant,
inner stream of happiness.

Sharing is the doorway through which the soul escapes the prison of
self-preoccupation. It is one of the clearest paths to God.

From the book "Affirmations for Self-Healing",
by Swami Kriyananda.

The path of archery

samurai

The importance of repeating the same thing
An action is a thought that manifests itself.
A small gesture denounces us, so we have to make everything perfect,
think about the details, learn the technique so that it becomes
intuitive. Intuition has nothing to do with routine but rather with a
state of spirit that lies beyond technique.
So, after practicing a lot, we no longer think about all the necessary
movements: they become part of our very existence. But for this to
happen, you have to train and repeat.
And as if that were not enough, you have to repeat and train.
Watch a good blacksmith working the steel. To the untrained eye he is
repeating the same hammer blows over and over again.
But those who know the importance of training know that each time the
hammer is raised and then lowered, the intensity of the blow is
different. The hand repeats the same gesture but as it approaches the
iron it knows whether to touch it harder or softer.
Look at the windmill. Whoever sees its vanes just once imagines that it
always turns with the same speed, always repeating the same movement. But
those who know windmills know that they are conditioned to the wind and
change their direction whenever necessary.
The hand of the ironsmith was trained after the gesture of hammering was
repeated thousands of times. Windmill vanes can move fast after the wind
has blown a lot and polished their gears. The archer lets many an arrow
pass far from the target because he knows that he will only learn the
importance of the bow, posture, the string and the target after he
repeats his gestures thousands of times without being afraid of making a
mistake.
Until he reaches the moment when he no longer needs to think about what
he doing. From then on the archer becomes his bow, his arrow and his
target.

How to observe the flight of the arrow
The arrow is intention projected into space.
Once it is fired, there is nothing left for the archer to do except
accompany its path towards the target. From that moment on, the tension
necessary for the shot has no more reason to exist.
The archer therefore keeps his eyes fixed on the flight of the arrow, but
his heart is at rest and he smiles.
At that moment, if he has trained enough, if he has managed to develop
his instinct, if he has maintained his elegance and concentration
throughout the whole process of the shot, then he will feel the presence
of the universe and hw will see that his action was fair and deserved.
Technique makes both hands always ready, breathing always precise, eyes
able to fix on the target. Instinct makes the moment of the shot perfect.
Whoever passes by and sees the archer with his arms open and his eyes
following the arrow will fancy that he is stopped. But the allies know
that the mind of the one who fired the arrow has changed dimension and is
now in contact with the entire universe: the mind goes on working,
learning everything of a positive nature that the shot has brought,
correcting any mistakes, accepting his qualities, and waiting to see how
the target reacts when it is struck.
When the archer stretches the string, he can see the whole world inside
his bow. When he accompanies the flight of the arrow, this world comes
close to him, caresses him and makes him relish the perfect sensation of
having fulfilled his duty.
A Warrior of Light, after fulfilling his duty and transforming his
intention into gesture, need fear no more: he has done what he had to do.
He has not allowed himself to be petrified by fear, for even if the arrow
fails to reach its target, he will have another opportunity, because he
has not been a coward.



Sure shots

From a mother to her daughter
In the whole wide world there is no-one like me. I am the owner of my
body, my thoughts, my ideas. The images that my eyes contemplate belong
to me and I need to know how to choose them. I possess my own fantasies,
my dreams, hopes and fears. Since I am owner of myself, I have to know
myself intimately. There are aspects of myself that confound me, others
that I do not know. But whether or not you agree with all that I am, this
is authentic, this represents the moment that I am living.

From an Anglican bishop in the year 1100
When I was young and free, I dreamed of changing the world. In maturity I
discovered that the world would not change, so I decided to change my
country. After some effort I ended up understanding that this too was
impossible. At the end of my years I tried to change my family but they
went on being the same as they were before.
Now on my death bed I discover that my mission was to change myself. If I
had done that, I would have been able to change my family. Then, with a
little luck, that change would affect my country, and then – who
knows – the whole wide world.

Midrach Rabba on Ecclesiastes
When men come into the world, their hands are always closed as if they
wanted to say: the whole world is mine and I am going to hold on to it.
When men leave the world, their hands are always open as if they wanted
to say: I have nothing in my power, all that I can take are my memories,
all that I can leave are my examples.

Kahlil Gibran to Mary Haskell
We are both trying to touch the limits of our existence. The great poets
of the past always surrendered themselves to Life. They were not looking
for some determined thing, nor were they trying to unravel secrets: they
simply let their souls be overwhelmed by emotions. People are always
seeking security, and sometimes they manage to achieve it: but security
is an end in itself, and Life has no end. Poets are not those who write
poetry, but all those whose heart is filled with the sacred spirit of
Love.

Epictetus to his disciples
Two things can happen when we meet someone: either we become friends, or
we try to convince the other person to accept our convictions. The same
happens when the ember meets another piece of coal: either it shares its
fire with it, or it is suffocated by its size and ends up extinguished.
As we are generally insecure at a first contact, we try indifference,
arrogance or excessive humility. The result is that we stop being who we
are and things start heading towards a strange world that does not belong
to us.

Kandinsky on painting
Painting is an art. And art is a power that should be aimed at developing
the soul. If art does not do this job, the abyss that separates us from
God is left without a bridge.
The artist owes his talent to God and has to settle this debt. To do
this, he has to work hard, know that he is free in his art but not in his
commitment to life. Everything he feels and thinks is part of the raw
material with which to improve the spiritual atmosphere around him.
Beauty, whether in art or in a woman, cannot be empty; it has to be at
the service of men and the world.

THE COURAGE TO BEGIN SEPARATES DREAMERS FROM ACHIEVERS




Your difficulty and the difficulty of every individual
who ever desired to achieve anything worthwhile,
comes in the movement.

Don't always be intending to live a new life,
but never find the time to begin living it.
Most people fail because they never get started.
They don't go. They don't overcome inertia.
They don't begin.

Begin to free yourself at once
by doing all that is possible with the means you have.
As you proceed in this spirit the way will open for you to do more.

The worst thing you can do is not to try.

"Why? Why? Why?"



"As long as one keeps searching, the answers come."

-- Joan Baez

Asking ourselves 'why?' helps us delve deeply into our main motives -- why we do what we do. This process helps us go deeper into our reasoning, habits and unconscious beliefs. Once we become aware of our underlying motives, we can choose to change them, if we wish.

Regularly ask yourself, 'Why am I...?' Listen closely for the answer that surfaces in your mind, and write it down. Now look at your answer and ask why again. Continue with this process to reach the true source of your motivation.

"Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else...."

-- Archibald Alexander

Make this a meaningful day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I integrate balance into every aspect of my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As we affirm today's statement, we may become aware of the
aspect(s) of our life in which we feel or sense we have not
integrated balance. We let this awareness be good news --
the good news of feedback. Feedback tells us where we need
to work, where to give our attention. Feedback is not a
sign of failure but a gift of information for an opportunity
for growth. If we experience balance in one aspect of our
life, we can expand it into other aspects. Balance is
balance is balance. We touch its vibration where we can so
that we can open to it in other parts and places.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
During these integrating/embodying days, you may notice some
aspects of balance or non-balance that require future or
ongoing attention. Soon you move to another theme for the
affirmations, but balance (or non-balance!) remains with
you. If you have a practice of journaling important events
and transitions, you may wish to journal about your passage.
Perhaps your passage is from unawareness of balance to
awareness of what in your life needs to be balanced.
Perhaps your passage is from conscious awareness of balance
to effortless integration of balance. Celebrate the
transition and name it, as appropriate for you.

ABOUT THE BOOK OF THE MONTH RECOMMENDATION
One of the quickest and best ways to know if something is
balanced or not is to notice the energy field. When you are
good at this, the knowledge of balance is instantaneous and
highly accurate. Here is a book that helps you to learn
about energy, energy healing, and energy fields. It is
called "Energy Medicine" by Donna Eden. You may read my

"Do You Give To Get?"



"I have sensed a growing discontent amongst many who are on their spiritual path. A common theme appears to be -- ‘I have been serving God for so long and have given up so much and it has been such a struggle -- when am I going to get my reward?’"

-- Wendy Munroe

It’s interesting to become aware of how we participate in the dynamic exchange of giving and receiving. When we give, do we do so whole-heartedly? Or do we do so with the ulterior motive of wanting something in return?

It’s not wise to be always looking for a deal. The universe never short-changes us. We can afford to be generous. The Koran spells out a value-for-value principle. When something of value is given, something of value must be returned.

"It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving."

-- Mother Teresa

CHOOSE YOUR ENVIRONMENT WITH CARE




Your own positive energy will compel things
to turn out the way you desire
when you're surrounded by positive people.

Your environment is your mental feeding ground
from which the food that goes into your mind is extracted.
Choose your environment with care, one that is positive,
one that lifts you up and gives you wings to soar.

Create favorable conditions through your association with others.
Avoid people who belittle your ambition.
Small people always do that,
but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us.
It's your friends that make your world.

Sonnet IV

Unthrifty loveliness, why dost thou spend Upon thyself thy beauty's legacy? Nature's bequest gives nothing but doth lend, And being frank she lends to those are free. Then, beauteous niggard, why dost thou abuse The bounteous largess given thee to give? Profitless usurer, why dost thou use So great a sum of sums, yet canst not live? For having traffic with thyself alone, Thou of thyself thy sweet self dost deceive. Then how, when nature calls thee to be gone, What acceptable audit canst thou leave? Thy unused beauty must be tomb'd with thee, Which, used, lives th' executor to be.

Make this an affirmative day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes to Balance!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
One of the simplest affirmations in our language is "yes."
"No" is also an affirmation, but it is a little trickier
because the word says "no" while the attention to the not-
wanted thing says "yes." The more clear we are about what
we desire in our life, the more clear we are about what we
do not desire in our life. The reverse is also true. I
want to be counted today as one who votes yes! to balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Are you with me? Do you also want to say yes! to balance?
You have been working toward the integration and embodiment
of balance all month. Today and for two more days you are
supported by Integrating/Embodying Affirmations specifically
designed to give you an opportunity to take the theme deeper
into your consciousness. I know from my personal consulting
work and empowerment workshops how very important it is to
allow people to integrate what they have learned. There are
many techniques: journaling, meditation, silence, review,
reflection, doing something completely different. So,
select an integrating technique such as these or others you
prefer to work with today and the next few days.

Purpose Gives Your Life Meaning



----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"Purpose is what gives life a meaning."
-Charles Henry Parkhurst, D.D.

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What do I want the meaning and purpose of my life to be?"


Make this an even day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I act with purposeful awareness of equanimity and balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Equanimity is a strong word that means calmness and
evenness. I also think of it as being devoid of judgment --
to walk evenly and equally on all the steps of life's
experiences. To be as peaceful in the face of disaster as
in the face of ease is equanimity. To be as confident when
the circumstances are tough as when they are simple is
equanimity. To be as calm with those with whom we disagree
philosophically as with those with whom we agree is
equanimity. Life is filled with bumps and joys and turns
and miracles and hiccups and surprises. Purposeful
awareness guides us to appreciating it all.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I recall a conversation with several people who seemed to
enjoy judging others. The conversation turned to the film
"The Bird Cage" which gave them an opportunity to show their
judgments. Two people at the table agreed adamantly that
this is a bad film (oh, they had not seen it, by the way --
I was the only one who had). I listened to them talk about
how their way is the best way. The subject changed to
something else soon after I said gently, "If you go to this
film with love in your heart, you are likely to watch with
compassion. If you go with hatred and fear in your heart,
you are likely to...., well, actually if you go with hatred
and fear in your heart you might as well stay home." What
challenge do you face today that demonstrates to yourself
that you can be loving and balanced?

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Integrating/Embodying affirmations begin.
Today is a good day to check for a final action you might
want to take to demonstrate balance in one or more aspects
of your life. Of course, you might want to make a
commitment to yourself to claim and demonstrate balance each
day. A re-visit of your over-arching intention for balance
also allows you to integrate more fully all that you have
learned this month.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let every act be an act of balance. I act from deep
integrity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Sometimes we have our attention focused so much on juggling
all the little things (or thingies as I called them the
other day), that we forget to pay attention to balancing the
large picture. Sometimes we have our attention on the large
picture and forget that we can learn balance from the
mundane or everyday tasks. Every act, every situation,
every word has contained in it the opportunity to learn
about any topic we set an intention to learn. When
integrity powers our actions -- little acts and big acts --
we experience balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Look away from your computer right now to focus your eyes on
something else in the room. Yes, I know, you have to look
back here to read the next sentence. Whatever you rested
your eyes upon (printer? pen? clutter? carpet? lamp?
calendar?) is balanced with respect to other things.
Notice, and describe the balance. Throughout the day,
notice how your relationships with other persons and things
can teach you balance.

"On Sadness"

sadness

"Our sadness is an energy we discharge in order to heal. …Sadness is painful. We try to avoid it. Actually discharging sadness releases the energy involved in our emotional pain. To hold it in is to freeze the pain within us. The therapeutic slogan is that grieving is the ‘healing feeling.’"

-- John Bradshaw

"To weep is to make less the depth of grief."

-- William Shakespeare

"There is no despair so absolute as that which comes with the first moments of our first great sorrow, when we have not yet known what it is to have suffered and be healed, to have despaired and recovered hope."

-- George Eliot

"Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness."

-- Lao-tzu

"When the heart grieves over what it has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I draw a circle of balance to establish my world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The circle has no beginning and no end -- the same as
infinity. While the circle can define space, it need not
confine space. While we are learning about life and
choices, we must distinguish between those ideas and things
that we desire in our lives and those ideas and things we do
not desire in our lives. It is important that we not
confuse a personal boundary with personal limitations. A
personal boundary differentiates us; limitations prevent us.
As our consciousness lifts high enough, we reduce the need
for boundaries. Until then, we encircle ourselves with the
energy of balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you draw your circle of balance to establish your world,
you may want to name the qualities and dynamics that you
wish to experience in your space, in your world. Use your
circle to absorb anything that gets in the way of balance as
you have defined it. After you have drawn your circle you
may choose to color it or enliven it with a memory that
represents balance, or enrich your circle with a vision of
the balanced life you are manifesting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I manifest all things in association with balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
When we set an intention to live in balance, our
manifestations are balanced. By "manifestations" I mean the
signs and proof of our creations: our actions, our
experiences, our relationships, our fulfilled dreams, our
achieved goals. Sometimes we see immediate results of our
balanced intention moving into manifestation; sometimes we
see results at a much later time. Thoughts DO manifest, so
we choose thoughts that create what we truly desire! A
conversation I had with an artist is apropos of today's
affirmation. His medium is wood; his specialty, furniture.
When he has to choose between art and functionality, he
chooses art. While each piece is made of the same "stuff,"
each item is distinct and carries his consciousness to the
showroom or the client. He is clear that his artwork is
manifested with balance and alignment with a higher power
and purpose. While not all our manifestations may be as
easy to trace as an artist's, the process itself is the same.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What do you most want to manifest in your life? Are you
manifesting that right now? If the answer is "no," I
suggest that you not ask "why?" or "why not?" but rather ask
"how?" Here is the simple formula: think the thoughts
that create the manifestations you desire. For example, if
you want a new and satisfying job, being grumpy about the
current job is NOT the way to manifest that new and
satisfying job. Instead, fill your thoughts with the joy of
working and doing what you love to do. Think empowering
thoughts about yourself, about your current job, and about
your new and satisfying job. Remember that the time between
a thought and its manifestation is lessened with higher
consciousness. Stay focused on what you desire to manifest,
stay balanced, and trust the process. Be the balance you seek.

Make this a powerful day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I claim my balance. I claim my power.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I know from clients and DailyAffirm subscribers and
telephone callers that this is a powerful time for many
people. I also know that many persons are struggling with
balance. Here's my suggestion: stop struggling!!!
Struggle keeps us in a state of imbalance. Struggle begets
resistance; resistance begets struggle. It is time to trust
the simplicity of the concept that we can CLAIM balance. We
do that now, today.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
An article that may be very useful to you if you are
resisting against or struggling about balance is "Freedom
from Bondage." It is a true story (though quite
abbreviated) about energy work I did with a client many
years ago. It is an example of one approach to the energy
work I do to help clients free themselves from the shackles
of limitation. Consider...... is there anything that
prevents you from being fully in your power? Whether the
barrier is inside you or outside you, dissolve or leap over
it into your power. Claim your balance and your power now,
unless you choose to let the barrier prevent you from living
a balanced and full life.

Today's Empowering Quote


----------------------------------

"Objects we ardently pursue bring little happiness when
gained; most of our pleasures come from unexpected sources."
--Herbert Spencer


----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"What can I notice right now that makes me smile?"


"Making A Difference"



"The spiritual life is a call to action. But it is a call to ... action without any selfish attachment to the results."

-- Eknath Easwaran

Many of us feel deeply that we want to make a difference -- we want our lives to mean something in the bigger scheme of life. While this is a noble motive, we might want to explore what lies at its root.

Does the drive to make a difference arise from ego’s need to feel worthy? If my ego is not convinced that I matter, I may want visible proof that I do by making some kind of impact on life.

Soul doesn’t need proof that it’s worthy. Soul thrives in being awake and connected. Perhaps if we let go of the pressure we feel from our ego’s need to be recognized, we will be more open and able to simply live soulfully. And by doing that, we WILL make a difference!

"A person’s worth is contingent upon who he is, not upon what he does, or how much he has. The worth of a person, or a thing, or an idea, is in being, not in doing, not in having."

-- Alice Mary Hilton

Sonnet - III.

Look in thy glass, and tell the face thou viewest Now is the time that face should form another; Whose fresh repair if now thou not renewest, Thou dost beguile the world, unbless some mother. For where is she so fair whose unear'd womb Disdains the tillage of thy husbandry? Or who is he so fond will be the tomb Of his self-love, to stop posterity? Thou art thy mother's glass, and she in theeCalls back the lovely April of her prime: So thou through windows of thine age shall see Despite of wrinkles this thy golden time. But if thou live, remember'd not to be, Die single, and thine image dies with thee.

Beautiful

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. —Helen Keller

THE SEED TO SUCCESS IS IN YOUR IMAGINATION




Visualize all the things that you want in life.
Then make your mental blueprint,
and begin to build what you imagine.
Your imagination can show you how to turn your possibilities into reality.

You must make every thought, every fact,
that comes into your mind pay you a profit.
Make those mental images work and produce for you.
Think of things not as they are but as you want them to be.
Don't just dream, be creative.

The will to succeed springs from the knowledge that you can succeed.

"Let Go Of The Past"



"Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time."

-- Asha Tyson

No regrets. As we become more aware, we begin to realize that there’s a purpose to everything that happens. This builds our trust, and supports us in being willing to be more open and daring to really experience life as it unfolds.

If we pay attention to what’s happening in each moment, we will discover that life continually brings us opportunities to heal our past wounds. When a painful memory surfaces, we can take the time to feel it fully, give compassion to ourselves and any others and allow the energy to release. As we deal with the past in this way IN THE PRESENT, we free ourselves to more fully connect with life.

"The next message you need is right where you are."

-- Ram Dass

Make this a rewarding day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I act with balance in my heart. I speak with balance on my
lips. I walk with balance in my feet.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Several primary channels and methods for acting and/or
claiming balance are represented in today's affirmation.
The heart represents our feelings; the lips represent our
expression; the feet represent physical movement. Here is a
personal flashback to many years ago when I had a job (now I
don't have a job, I have a business). One of my co-workers,
a physically strong man, was asked to put shelving together
in our new offices -- we were trainers and consultants, we
did everything! Boldly, he put together the shelving -- you
know the kind, institutional dark gray metal with four
little plastic thingies to position each shelf. He had
moved from the bottom to the top, carefully putting each
shelf in place measured by the one below, when I caught a
glimpse of his efforts: the left end of the shelf was higher
than the right by one peg length. He had worked hard, yet
his results were out of balance. We had a good laugh.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Perhaps you need to laugh about something in your life that
is out of balance. If you act with imbalance or instability,
what happens? If you speak when you are out of sorts, what
happens? If you walk when you are shaken or dizzy, what
happens? If you do not like the answers to these questions,
then balance yourself. Act with clarity. Speak with
evenness. Walk with effortlessness. You do not need to
wait for ANYthing. Do it now. In the meantime, laugh at
the out-of-balance aspects in your life and, if needed, move
a few thingies.

Non so dove trovarti
Non so come cercarti
Ma sento una voce che
Nel vento parla di te
Quest' anima senza cuore
Aspetta te
Adagio
Le notti senza pelle
I sogni senza stelle
Immagini del tuo viso
Che passano all' improvviso
Mi fanno sperare ancora
Che ti trovero
Adagio
Chiudo gli occhi e vedo te
Trovo il cammino che
Mi porta via
Dall' agonia
Sento battere in me
Questa musica che
Ho inventato per te
Se sai come trovarmi
Se sai dove cercarmi
Abbracciami con la mente
Il sole mi sembra spento
Accendi il tuo nome in cielo
Dimmi che ci sei
Quello che vorrei
Vivere in te
Il sole mi sembra spento
Abbracciami con la mente
Smarrita senza di te
Dimmi chi sei e ci credero
Musica sei
Adagio

rosepetals on floor

I don't know where to find you
I don't know how to reach you
I hear your voice in the wind
I feel you under my skin
Within my heart and my soul
I wait for you
Adagio
All of these nights without you
All of my dreams surround you
I see and I touch your face
I fall into your embrace
When the time is right I know
You'll be in my arms
Adagio
I close my eyes and I find a way
No need for me to pray
I've walked so far
I've fought so hard
Nothing more to explain
I know all that remains
Is a piano that plays
If you know where to find me
If you know how to reach me
Before this light fades away
Before I run out of faith
Be the only man to say
That you'll hear my heart
That you'll give your life
Forever you'll stay
Don't let this light fade away
Don't let me run out of faith
Be the only man to say
That you believe, make me believe
You won't let go
Adagio

Rediscover Your Sense Of Smell"


Rose

"Smell is a potent wizard that transports us across thousands of miles and all the years we have lived."

-- Helen Keller

Many of us are so wrapped up in our thinking and activity that we have lost touch with our senses. Sensing brings us fully into the moment. Only when we are aware and conscious can we receive the gifts of experience our senses continually bring us.

Today, set an intention to be aware of smells. Focus on your nose and awaken to its sensitivity. As you smell more consciously, let go of your judgment of the aromas. Don’t label them good or bad; simply experience them for their individual qualities. Also note when smells revive old memories.

"When you start using senses you’ve neglected, your reward is to see the world with completely fresh eyes."

-- Barbara Sher

Make this an energetic day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Balance energizes my actions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This concise statement starts the Acting/Claiming
affirmations. We step into our power. Each day we step
more powerfully into balance as we think about or say words
that invite still more balance into our lives, which further
energizes our actions. Balance is a powerful fuel that we
can use in all our activities and projects.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, let balance -- however YOU are defining it --
energize all that you do. If you have any hesitancy or
doubt, take time to align yourself with your power before
stepping forward. Without this alignment, you may have a
tendency to feel powerful, but in the wrong direction or in
an inappropriate way. This is not empowerment, but mere
movement or wasted energy. What is the most empowering
action you can take today?

Make this a wonderful week-plus!

Greetings on the 4th week of March with the theme of Balance.
During this fourth week we focus on Acting/Claiming
Affirmations, and the last days of the month we focus on
Integrating/Embodying Affirmations. Make this a wonderful
week-plus!

ABOUT ACTING/CLAIMING AFFIRMATIONS and BALANCE
Since everything is constantly in a state of change, it is
important to be cognizant of balance when we are moving as
well as when we are still. Whether we are moving from the
inside to the outside, from outside to inside, from higher
to lower, or from lower to higher, we desire to achieve
balance. We act FROM balance; we act IN balance; we act TO
balance; we act AS balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Think of balance as an energy that fuels your thoughts,
feelings, and actions. During this week, you may wish to
focus on one specific priority in your life to direct the
flow of balance. Keep your focus on both balance and the
priority, and you cannot fail to achieve balance. Put your
attention elsewhere and you fuel that other thing. Balance.
Priority. Balance. Priority. Balance. Priority.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for balance it would be the
affirmation for March 27: "I let every act be an act of
balance. I act from deep integrity." This keeps the
attention on both actions and balance (the week's process
and this month's theme respectively) as well as integrity.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

March 22:
Balance energizes my actions.

March 23:
I act with balance in my heart. I speak with balance on my
lips. I walk with balance in my feet.

March 24:
I claim my balance. I claim my power for today and for all
the todays to come.

March 25:
I manifest all things in association with balance.

March 26:
I draw a circle of balance to establish my world.

March 27:
I let every act be an act of balance. I act from deep
integrity.

March 28:
I act with purposeful awareness of equanimity and balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT INTEGRATING/EMBODYING AFFIRMATIONS and BALANCE
We let this week's affirmations support us in reflecting on
the month's exploration of balance. We know that every
situation can teach us about balance. We say Yes! to
balance today and every day. We do not need to wait for any
particular event or circumstance to change. We acknowledge
balance right now.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Select your special techniques for embodying and integrating
ideas, feelings, and experiences. For example: journaling,
reflecting on highlights, reviewing the previous DailyAffirm
messages and any exercises you may have done about the
affirmations. As you meditate on balance, reflect on the
whole month and weed out anything in your desk or computer
that makes you feel imbalanced, indecisive, or overloaded.

March 29:
Yes to Balance!

March 30:
I integrate balance into every aspect of my life.

March 31:
Today is an opportunity for balance.

"What Are Your Priorities Today?"


"Most people are so busy knocking themselves out trying to do everything they think they should do, they never get around to do what they want to do."

-- Kathleen Winsor

When we clearly set an intention, our conscious and subconscious minds mobilize to help us meet that intention. At the start of each day, thoroughly review what commitments you have made to others for the day, and decide what commitment(s) you will make for yourself.

What can you do today that will move you one step closer to your personal goals? Own your power to choose to meet your own needs. After all, we are much better able to help others when our own needs are met. And at the end of the day, when you've honoured your commitment to yourself, acknowledge your success.

"If you want to make good use of your time, you've got to know what's most important and then give it all you've got."

-- Lee Iacocca

Sonnet #2

When forty winters shall beseige thy brow, And dig deep trenches in thy beauty's field, Thy youth's proud livery, so gazed on now, Will be a tatter'd weed, of small worth held: Then being ask'd where all thy beauty lies, Where all the treasure of thy lusty days, To say, within thine own deep-sunken eyes, Were an all-eating shame and thriftless praise. How much more praise deserved thy beauty's use, If thou couldst answer 'This fair child of mine Shall sum my count and make my old excuse,' Proving his beauty by succession thine! This were to be new made when thou art old, And see thy blood warm when thou feel'st it cold.

Make this an attentive day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Balance enhances all my thoughts and feelings. I give my
attention to balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
That to which we give our attention expands. So, let's give
our attention to balance! Many folks give lots of attention
to imbalance, so imbalance expands. Certainly we need to be
aware of aspects of imbalance and instability and
disharmony, but too much attention to these dynamics expands
them. We can notice in a matter-of-fact or detached way
while giving our primary attention -- our energy -- to
balance and to those ideas and feelings that help us to
experience balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today is the last day of the Being/Intending Affirmations.
I suggest you do three things before moving into the next
genre of affirmations: (1) consider if there is anything
else you want to become or be or know or intend with respect
to balance, (2) re-visit the over-arching intention you set
for balance, and (3) ascertain if you are ready to be
powerfully balanced. Since these affirmations are designed
as a process, it is important that you feel ready to
proceed. If you need more time to ponder being and
intending with respect to balance, take the time.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow begins the Acting/Claiming Affirmations, so
consider anything else that is relevant to you about your
relationship to balance. Be certain you feel clear about
this theme before you affirm actions and make claims. If
you are alert, you will discover that you make choices about
balance and imbalance many times throughout a day.

Love is Purifying



Give yourself space to let in love. Let yourself love someone, or
something....for that opens the gates to letting in the loving,
healing, relaxing vibration of LOVE! Relax, let go and just trust
love! Try to just love anything. Whether it be a plant, animal, car,
person, house, your clothes, or even yourself... giving love and
letting in love will create a deep purification through to your very
core.

Love acts much like a fire, that once it's spark turns to a flame,
will burn away the coldness and confusion, bringing a brilliant light
into darkness hiding everything. Love will purify the negativity,
doubt, fear, insecurity, and feelings of abandonment you have
recyclying inside you. Once you have loved another person truly,
consistently and fully (and are also letting in love), your life will
not be wasted. You will know that even the smallest amount of love
you have experienced, is a million times more valuable than all the
total of all the pain you had in your entire life.

A life seeking love is like finding the map and not the treasure. Not
living everyday in love only happens when one is resisting,
defending, and protecting their ego from pain and fear of getting
hurt again. Remain open; like the lotus flower that blossoms out of
the mud, it must open its petals wide to catch the sun's warm rays of
succulent light. Remaining open is what brings your mind, heart and
being into this very moment. Being completely defenseless and open
will release the tension from every cell in your bodymind.

After much practice and many moons of purifying yourself with love,
you will look back at your past and see that your pain was sooooo
very small, distant and detached from who you truly are. The pain you
once identified as your own, will seem like it belonged to a
stranger. And you'll see that the pain you went through also gave you
the courage to ignite that damp burried flint deeper inside you. Only
through letting in love everyone be free from pain completely. It
will be a glorious day when you can look at your life and know it is
an eternal blossom, an effulgent fire, purifying yourself and
everyone around you with pure love.

Many blessings to you,
Jafree

Purify your mind to manifest your dreams and desires in 90 days or
less!

Make this a transcendent day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I understand the meaning of balance. I know that balance
transcends duality.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Duality is a helpful concept while we are learning our
lessons in Earth School. The spiritual transformation that
we are living through includes transcending duality. Many
folks believe that they must experience bad in order to
understand or appreciate good. I find this a limiting
belief. While it is true that we can and do learn about
good as a result of experiencing bad, I observe that many
people dwell too long in the negativity rather than catching
the desire or vision that the negativity can help to define.
Of course, there are many dualities other than good and bad
that are more neutral -- left and right, in and out, up and
down. So as we reflect on our definition of balance, we
include in it the idea of transcending duality.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
An excellent way to appreciate duality is to write with both
hands -- one at a time, as I suggest in the writing
affirmations process. As you move from writing with the
dominant to the non-dominant hand, your world changes. One
is not better than the other, but different from the other.
You can also appreciate duality by becoming aware of a
thought, and then intentionally becoming aware of the
opposite thought, and then blending the two or looking for
commonality in the extremes. Both of these are helpful
exercises in relating to duality in your human
consciousness.

Change Your View, Change Your Life


----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
----------------------------------

"Should one look through a red glass at a while lily, he
would seem to see a red lily. But there would be no red
lily. So it is with humanity's problems. They consist of
false mental pictures."
--M.D. Garbrick

----------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
----------------------------------

"Is this problem a problem, or am I looking
at it the wrong way? Is it something better?"

Make this a memorable day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I remember how to balance. I remember to embody balance. I
remember who I am.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
So often when we speak of remembering or forgetting we are
referring to facts, dates, tasks, names, and the like. In
speaking of remembering balance, we go to another level of
awareness: to intention, purpose, mission, existence, and
the like. These three sentences strung together may not be
as literary as one sentence. However, they have more power
as an affirmation in these three steps. The three-sentence
format also invites us to add other sentences or rearrange
the ideas in each of the existing sentences.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you read through or work with today's affirmation, ponder
the meaning of each sentence. If you choose to repeatedly
read or write or say the affirmation, you will notice the
meaning(s) change with repetition. Of course, if you choose
to rewrite this into one sentence, feel free. As I
frequently remind you: make the process work for you!
Today, above all else, remember who you are -- I mean TRULY
remember who you are.

SUCCESS IS ON YOUR HORIZON




You can start at any time if you want to be successful.
But you have to start.

You won't accomplish anything if you wait
for all the possible objections to be overcome.
Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.

Don't be afraid to live. Don't wait for things to change.
Don't wait until you have more time, until you are less tired,
until you get the promotion, until you settle down, until, until, until.
Don't wait for a major event in your life to occur before you begin to live.

Begin where you are.
Work where you are.
The hour you are wasting now, dreaming of some far off success,
is crowded with tremendous possibilities.

When you take the first step,
your mind will mobilize all its forces to assist you.
Once you have started,
all that is within you and unknown forces around you
will come to your assistance.

The only way to start down the road to success
is to move your feet, one step at a time.
Success is waiting for you.

THE DAILY GURU


Make this a divine day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My mission is to experience balance in my world. I am
aligned with the divine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This is a powerful idea to ponder. Of course, each one of
us has our own personal mission for being here on the planet.
Let us consider, though, what the world would be like if we
all dedicated ourselves to experiencing balance in our own
world, that is, in the space in which we focus our lives.
The divine IS balance, so attuning to the divine with loving
feelings and thoughts helps us to experience balance in our
life.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I challenge you to work with today's affirmation in a way
that you do not usually work with the affirmations.
Consider varying your process, just to stretch yourself.
Perhaps the change is the time you spend with the
affirmation. If you usually take a quick peek and forget
the affirmation for the rest of the day, experiment with
taking longer. If you usually take a long time, just take a
quick peek. Perhaps the change is your approach to
expressing it. If you usually read it quietly, try chanting
or singing it. If you usually write it, try drawing a visual
image that represents the affirmation. If you usually read
it right side up, read it upside down.

What can I do today that I have been dreaming about for a long time?

"What's Draining Your Energy?"



"Energy is equal to desire and purpose."

-- Sheryl Adams

What people, events or things drain your energy? What part of you is not going with the flow? What are you resisting?

Plug your energy leaks and experience what it feels like to work on all cylinders.


"Everything you are against weakens you. Everything you are for empowers you."

-- Wayne Dyer

REALITY FORMS AROUND YOUR COMMITMENTS




The intense anticipation of things to come
will transform your possibilities into reality.
Your desires are the precursors of the things that you can have.
They will in time externalize themselves into concrete fact.

Just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat,
weak desires bring weak results.
Live your life with fire and passion.
Always remember, if you care enough for the end result,
you'll almost certainly attain it.

You can make your world.

Pray for the love

tear
I’m searching for the soul
I’m meant to share my soul with
I’m looking for the cure
to this emptiness
Sometimes it seems so out of reach
finding the one, the one who completes me

So I pray for the love that will save me
So I wait for the hours that will lift me
So I wait for the eyes that will tell me

I am whole, I am whole
And I wait for my life to be changed with one look, one touch

I pray for the love

For somebody in my life
to walk across this life with
For someone to shield my heart from the loneliness
Share all my dreams, share all my time
wait for the one
who’s waiting to find me

So I pray for the love that will save me…

Pray for the love
To fill my soul
You want to walk through this life all alone

So I pray for the love…

Russel Watson


The Alchemist

In the desert where almost nothing grows
you’ll find the most beautiful rose
takes its name from Jericho
a miracle of life
I know a place I can’t deny
where even a Jericho rose would die
The desert of your heart’s where I am trying to survive

Can’t control this
can’t let go this
feeling is all I have
I know that...

I could build a tower out of steel and stone
but trying to build a bridge to you
is something I can’t seem to do
If I could turn this dust to gold
you’d see it clearly
Trying to earn your love
is just like trying to learn the art of alchemy

The measure of a woman’s heart
is just how deep and just how far
a secret can be kept
till it is only distant memory
My emotions fall on stony ground
I wear them just like hand-me-downs
because I know the secret is the love
that you have for me

I can’t believe
can hardly breathe
without you by my side
I know that...
I could build a tower out of steel and stone….

How could life be the same
if I find I loved in vain
The dream I have every night
is to wake with you by my side

I could build a tower out of steel and stone….

Russel Watson

Make this an intentional day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

High intention operates in the midst of balance. Balance
operates in the midst of high intention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation is meaningful when using either or both
sentences. While the words are reversed, the meaning is
not. Balance and high intention operate together.
Understanding the power of intention is essential for
positive change. Everything (EVERYTHING) is in constant
change -- let us all agree to that one! However, we want to
feel that change happens for the good of all -- for the
best. In other words, we want change to be more than mere
movement.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
This affirmation seems to have the rhythm of a chant. You
may hear drums or harps, depending on your perspective. Or
perhaps you feel the rhythm or the movement; you may hear
associated sounds that tell you the extent to which this
affirmation resonates for you. Experience the balance of
the affirmation; experience the balance in your life that
you are intending as a result of working with this
affirmation.

Sonnet #1

Sonnet #1
I. FROM fairest creatures we desire increase, That thereby beauty's rose might never die, But as the riper should by time decease, His tender heir might bear his memory: But thou, contracted to thine own bright eyes, Feed'st thy light'st flame with self-substantial fuel, Making a famine where abundance lies, Thyself thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel. Thou that art now the world's fresh ornament And only herald to the gaudy spring, Within thine own bud buriest thy content And, tender churl, makest waste in niggarding. Pity the world, or else this glutton be, To eat the world's due, by the grave and thee.
 

Dreaming of a New Morning

Another morning
I'm afraid of what we've become
The lack of knowing
if you care...

Another teardrop
sparkles my eyes
I couldn't stand in your way

I know we have said goodby
Isn't it worth a new try?
Nights can get lonely
I know

Dreaming of a new tomorrow
Time can not heal
another heart that's broken
And I couldn't stand the thought
of turning around to face another start

I hear your laugher
The sounds chase the night away
Here on after
in my mind

The tender feelings
Moments of joy
eternal love
should not end
if time is changing the set
could we forgive and forget?

Nights can get lonenly
I know!

Dreaming of a new tomorrow
And how love can heal and mend the parts that are broken
Couse I'm living by the hope
we don't have to
face another start
don't close the door
don't close the door

Tor Endresen

Right Next To The Right One



What if we were meant to be together
What if you were meant to be the one
I could hide a million years and try to believe
That any time the girl in mind will come and rescue me

‘Cause you’re the fire, you’re the one
But you will never see the sun
If you don’t know, you’re right next to the right one
I could call it many names
But it’s myself I need to blame
If you don’t know, you’re right next to the right one

In the end you’ve got a friend for lifetime (mhmh)
Truly there to truly care for you
I know you cry a million tears so I want you to know
That a pretty face can take you places, you don’t wanna go

‘Cause you’re the fire, you’re the one
But you will never see the sun
If you don’t know, you’re right next to the right one
And I could call it many names
But it’s myself I need to blame
If you don’t know, you’re right next to the right one now

So in the end it all depends on whether you’ll find
Warm embraces when I replace the one you had in mind...

‘Cause you’re the fire, you’re the one
But you will never see the sun
If you don’t know, you’re right next to the right one
I could call it many names
But it’s myself I need to blame
If you don’t know, you’re right next to the right one
Yeah (ohoh..)
You're right next ti the right one
I could call it many names
But it's myself I need to blame, if you don't know
You right next to the right one
Right next to the right one

Make this an empowering day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of balance, from
which my empowering actions spring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
All actions come from consciousness. We may or may not be
aware of our process, which is one of the reasons that
simple questions like "What is your/my intention?" and
"Where is your/my attention?" are so valuable. When we ask
these questions, we want to ask them so that they empower,
not accuse or blame. Touching our intention usually deepens
it. Giving our attention to something means giving our
energy, which expands the focus of our attention. Simply
asking these two questions (REGARDLESS of the answer) lifts
our consciousness. Well-constructed questions can be useful
for our whole lifetime. Answers change from moment to
moment and situation to situation, temporarily useful
(sometimes). In addition to the above, here are a few more
of my favorite questions: "What is the most empowering
thing I can do or say right now?" "What is worthy of my
attention?" "What is my true desire?" "Who am I?"

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Identify a particular situation you face today -- glorious
or challenging, large or small, short-term or long-time.
Then select one or more of the questions above and write
your answers with respect to the identified situation.
After you have surfaced enough ideas to give you greater
clarity about the situation, write a high intention for
empowerment or balance with respect to the situation.

FOCUS ON YOUR FUTURE NOT YOUR PAST



Your future is a big adventure.
Prepare for your future, don't live in the past.
Savor your good memories,
use any bad ones as lessons in life.

Carve out a niche for yourself in your imagined future.
Think, feel and see yourself as successful.
To achieve any goal in life, you need to project your end result.
Think of the elation, the satisfaction, the joy you'll feel.
Carry these ecstatic feelings with you every day
and they'll bring your desired goals into view.

Sooner or later, you can win if you think you can.
The cards you are dealt in life
are less important than the way you play them.
Every day you're offered a new deal and new cards.

Success is in your future if you're willing to work for it.

At the end of the black tunnel

 

     “I saw only a tunnel.”
      In the bar in Sibiu, in Transylvania, Sorin looks deep into my eyes. He carries on speaking.
     “I saw a black tunnel with a man at the end of it, making signs at me.”
      I wait. We have all the time in the world and I remember that when I was in the same situation I saw a tunnel too, except this one led to a hotel in Rio de Janeiro, the Glória Hotel. I looked at that hotel, expected the worse and thought to myself: “it’s not fair, I’m only 26 years old!” Fair or not, in the early morning of 27 May 1974 I stood before death and could not see what was happening beside me. Just the tunnel and the hotel. But my story does not matter, it serves only to say that I understand perfectly well what Sorin is telling me in a bar lost in the middle of the Carpates Mountains.
     “I saw only a tunnel, with a man pointing a gun at me and telling me to get out of the car.”
     Sorin Miscoci’s Calvary began on 28 March 2005, near Baghdad. He had been designated to spend a week there at the request of a Rumanian TV station and ended up being kidnapped for 55 days.
     “Later on, when they freed me, the American security agents asked me how many people were there. And I told them: one. They laughed and said that just wasn’t possible. It was the psychologist who helped me, explaining that in situations like this, nothing in the surroundings has any importance. All you see is the focus of the crisis, what is threatening you, and you simply forget the rest.
      Sorin has just got married to Andrea, who strokes his hand. We have been traveling together for three days and we will continue for another week crossing the Carpates Mountains. I knew his story, but waited until he was in his home town before asking him the details. Cristina Topescu, an old friend who worked as a journalist in the same TV as Sorin, was also at the table. She says that when the time came to mobilize the country, few colleagues came forward to speak to the President of the Republic, for fear of losing their jobs.
     “The worst of it was that I saw Sorin wearing orange overalls and with his head shaven, in a video that was delivered to Al-Jazeera (the Arab channel based in Qatar),” says Cristina. “This was a sign that his execution would take place quite soon.”
     “I asked God for only one thing: to die with a bullet in the heart. I had already seen videos of prisoners being decapitated; I asked, begged to be shot,” adds Sorin.
      Andrea gives him a kiss. He smiles, asks if I want to stay in that restaurant or if we should go to the only karaoke in Sibiu. I prefer to interrupt the conversation at that point - it was better to go and sing together. Our group gets up, I try to pay the bill but it was “on the house” in homage to the local hero, he who had survived in spite of everything.
      On the way to the discotheque, I think about the black tunnel: without wanting to romanticize a dramatic situation, I fell that this happens to everyone. When we are faced with something that really threatens us, it is impossible to look around, although this is the correct and safer procedure. We can’t see clearly, use logic, gather information that can help us and those who try to get us out of that situation. In love and in war we are human, thank God.
      We reach the karaoke, drink some more, sing Elvis, Madonna and Ray Charles. Ours is an interesting group: Lacrima, who was abandoned by her mother when she was only two months old. Leonardo, who has just got over a depression that lasted two years. Cristina Topescu, who recently overcame difficult moments. Sorin and his 55 days in captivity, and Andrea, who almost lost the person she loved. And me, with scars all over my body and soul.
      And even so we drank, sang and celebrated life. To have friends like these gives me more than hope, it makes me understand that the true survivors will never be victims to their torturers, because they manage to keep alive the most important thing in human beings: joy.
      And where there is joy after tragedy, there will always be an example to be followed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know that balance leads to the highest good for all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
"The highest good for all" is my idea of an all-purpose,
generic high intention. I especially like to use it EITHER
when I have an opinion what is best OR when I do not have a
clue what is best. As soon as the concept of the "highest
good for all" has our attention, both our perspectives and
the creative outcomes expand, even if we do not have
concrete facts. We just KNOW that everything is happening
for the good of all. A stated intention is the foundation
of all my work. When I start a project or a consultation or
a conversation, I ask myself "what is my intention?" When I
am in the role of facilitator or consultant I ask the
individual(s) "What is your intention?" Just asking the
question opens us to higher/deeper thinking. When we
articulate the intention, still deeper is the connection
with the intention. When we write down the intention, we
experience enhanced awareness by watching results flow from
the intention.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What is your intention? Identify a specific situation,
perhaps one that you feel VERY close to with lots of emotion
and history and desires for change. Take a deep breath.
Now, set an intention. Keep it simple, just as I suggest
when you are writing the over-arching intention for the
monthly theme. If your specific situation is with one other
person with whom you are in disagreement, perhaps your
intention is "to have open and honest communication" or "to
come to an understanding that is for the highest good for
all" or "to listen deeply and speak clearly." If you find
yourself attached to a particular position for an end
result, you are not working with high intention.

Balance

Greetings on the 3rd week of March with the theme of Balance.
During this third week we focus on Being/Intending
Affirmations. Make this a balanced week!

Remind yourself of your over-arching intention for balance.

ABOUT BEING/INTENDING AFFIRMATIONS and BALANCE
This week's affirmations support balance in our lives by
going into the consciousness of our intention. "To be or
not to be" is a much-quoted line from one of our greatest
writers. We must know who we are and know who we are
becoming. It is also helpful to know who we are not and who
we are not becoming when that leads us to clarifying who we
are. In any given moment we may feel that we are unbalanced
or dissonant or indecisive, yet we affirm our intention to
become balanced, to become balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What is your intention for balance? What is your intention
for this week with respect to balance? What is the most
empowering thing you can do/say about the aspect of your
life that most challenges you? Who are you? Who are you
becoming? As you ponder these questions, consider also how
you feel about the idea of balancing your life from the
inside to the outside. As you let go of others' perceptions
and opinions, consider the power of the balance of One, a
balance which transcends duality.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for Balance it would be the
affirmation for March 20: "I understand the meaning of
balance. I know that balance transcends duality." Duality
on the earth plane is a method of evolving. This week, we
transcend duality so that we feel whole right here and right
now.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

March 15:
I know that balance leads to the highest good for all.

March 16:
I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of balance from
which my empowering actions spring.

March 17:
High intention operates in the midst of balance. Balance
operates in the midst of high intention.

March 18:
My mission is to experience balance in my world. I am
aligned with the divine.

March 19:
I remember how to balance. I remember to embody balance. I
remember who I am.

March 20:
I understand the meaning of balance. I know that balance
transcends duality.

March 21:
Balance enhances all my thoughts and feelings. I give my
attention to balance.

"The Paradox Of Life's Journey"


vei
"It is only when we realize that life is taking us nowhere that it begins to have meaning."

-- P.D. Ospensky

"All major mystical traditions have recognized that there is a paradox at the heart of the journey of return to Origin. ...Put simply, this is that we are already what we seek, and that what we are looking for on the Path with such an intensity of striving and passion and discipline is already within and around us at all moments. The journey and all its different ordeals are all emanations of the One Spirit that is manifesting everything in all dimensions; every rung of the ladder we climb toward final awareness is made of the divine stuff of awareness itself; Divine Consciousness is at once creating and manifesting all things and acting in and as all things in various states of self-disguise throughout all the different levels and dimensions of the universe."

-- Andrew Harvey

"Look at you, you madman, Screaming you are thirsty And are dying in a desert When all around you there is nothing but water!"

-- Kabir

"After changes upon changes, we are more or less the same."

--Paul Simon

Make this a ready day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am ready right now to live in balance and harmony.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Are you ready? Are you sure? Readiness is such a nifty
idea because we get to make a choice before we commit the
act. Readiness is not about the future, it is about the
present. So, if we are ready right now, that is all that
matters. We fill ourselves with the energy of readiness.
We breathe it. We expand our energy field with its
vibration. If anything opposes the readiness, we let the
opposition come forward so we can speak to it. We are even
ready for non-readiness! We are in charge. We claim the
readiness, right now.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
In the first week of the month, you worked with affirmations
that emptied you of non-balance. This week, you have been
opening to ideas and experiences of balance. Tomorrow the
DailyAffirm process assists you to move into a deeper
relationship with balance so that in the fourth week you can
step into balance in a way that you may not even understand
now. In the days following the fourth week, you will reflect
on integration of balance. Of course, you do not need to WAIT
until the end of the month to live in balance and harmony,
so if you feel it is unnecessary to affirm your readiness,
simply re-write the affirmation so that it reads. "I live
in balance and harmony right now."

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Being/Intending affirmations begin, inviting
you to envision what you desire to create with respect to
balance -- much like the over-arching intention at the
beginning of the month. Today is a good day to reflect on
all that you are receiving and have received so that you can
explore more deeply who you are.

Doors will Open...

If you find yourself in a challenging situation which is hard for you
to accept, let go of it for 3 minutes and rest in silence. When you
are relaxing inside yourself, notice a Divine Presence is radiating
from you. It is simple, soft and sweet. It is closer to you than your
next breath of air, you cannot miss it. Then the situation you were
once challenged by will be dissolved into an O.F.G.(Opportunity For
Growth), and reveal another amazing reason why you are here on Earth.
Behind every challenge there is an opportunity to expand further into
existence. When you shift your perspective from the outer to the
inner just slightly, you can see that you are truly the vibration and
consciousness of Love itself. Then no matter what you do with your
time, thoughts and actions, it will be an expression of Divine. From
this space all doors to heaven will open automatically for you.

Time To Change Direction?"



"Employ the power of positive quitting. Most of us view quitting as something negative, but it’s not. ‘Winners never quit,’ we’re told, when, in reality, winners quit all the time: choosing to stop doing things that aren’t creating the results they desire. When you quit all the things that aren’t working for you, when you quit tolerating all the negative things that hold you back, you’ll create a positive ‘charge’ in your life as well as create the space in your life for more positive experiences."

-- Jim Allen

"I like thinking of possibilities. At any time, an entirely new possibility is liable to come along and spin you off in an entirely new direction. The trick, I've learned, is to be awake to the moment."

-- Doug Hall

"Persons and societies do not submit passively to surroundings and events. They make choices as to the places where they live and the activities in which they engage -- choices based on what they want to be, to do and to become. Furthermore, persons and societies often change their goals and ways; they can even retrace their steps and start in a new direction if they believe they are on a wrong course. Thus, whereas animal life is prisoner of biological evolution which is essentially irreversible, human life has the wonderful freedom of social evolution which is rapidly reversible and creative. Wherever human beings are concerned, trend is not destiny."

-- Rene Dubos

Finding the Moment




“The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time.”

-Abraham Lincoln

It’s been rainy in Southern California, and I was feeling run down and low-energy
last week, so I went to see my local homeopath. She looked at me and asked what
I thought was a very unusual question:

‘Are you having a really good week?’

As I had just closed several deals which meant that in theory I could pretty much
take the rest of the year off (though in practice, I know I won’t), I said ‘yes,
I suppose I have.’

‘I thought so,’ she said. ‘I’ve never seen you this stressed.’

What was interesting to me about that exchange was that it hadn’t occurred to me
I could get just as stressed out by things going too well as by things going
poorly.

When I looked at the common elements to both scenarios, the connection became
clear – whether things seem to be going extremely poorly or extremely well, my
focus is in the future, not in the moment – and the future (over which I have no
direct control) can be a very stressful place to live.

In fact, the only moment we have any real control over is this one – and of
course, this one right now.

As I drove home in the rain, musing over my ‘moment’ theory, I heard the
unmistakable sound of a car skidding towards me in the rain. I snapped out of my
thought-trance, slammed on my own brakes, and mercifully everyone was completely
fine.

Better still, I had found the moment (you know – this one) – and in just a few
moments, all the stress I had been feeling dissipated, replaced instead by a
gentle ‘background bliss’.

I have been fairly solidly grounded in the moment (it’s happening right now)
since then, and have reaped the benefits of relatively stress-free living
(despite each of my children coming down with the flu in the space of the last 72
hours).

But as I sat down to write today, it occurred to me that narrowly avoiding a car
accident, useful though it was for me in finding the moment (are you here yet?),
was not a terribly practical tip to share. So instead, here are three of my
favorite non-life threatening ways to ‘find the moment’ along with a special
experiment which neatly addresses many people’s fear that finding in the moment
means losing out on the gifts of the past and the potentials of the future…


1. Stop breathing (but only for a moment)

One of my favorite quotes, for which I have never satisfactorily found an author,
is:

“Life isn’t measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which
take your breath away.”

In the past week, I have had my breath taken away by:

*My four year old daughter’s giggle when I tuck her in for the night

*Hearing my eight year old daughter singing along to ‘High School Musical’

*Watching my eleven year old son dancing when he thought I wasn’t looking

*Seeing my wife come down the stairs dressed to the nines for an evening out

*Seeing my dogs cuddled up with one another sound asleep on the sofa

*The view out over the valley on a midnight hike with a friend

*A scene in a movie about a family that live in a lighthouse

Each time you lose your breath in the beauty of nature, love, or even a sappy,
happy movie, you find the moment – and by taking the time to collect those
moments, you get to relive them in every moment now.


2. Have an ‘In Body’ experience

One of the great things about having a body is that it is always anchored in the
present moment. So anytime you’re looking for the moment, you know you can find
it right where you are sitting (or standing) now.

Just take ten seconds or so (about the time it takes for three gentle breaths) to
scan your body from your head down to your stomach. This simple process, which
author Gay Hendricks calls ‘The Ten Second Miracle’ (see the ‘Want to Learn
More?’ section at the end of the tip to learn more) is a quick and gentle way of
not only finding the moment but finding out what is going of for you in this
moment.


3. Live the questions

In the book ‘Unconditional Bliss’, Raphael Cushnir shares a simple two question
exercise for finding and living in what the Hawaiian’s call ‘the moment of
power’. Simply ask yourself ‘What is happening right now?’ and take the time to
answer. Then regardless of what your answer is, ask yourself this: ‘Can I be
with it?’

Even if your answer is ‘no’, simply sticking with these two questions will
reliably guide you into the moment even when everything around you is trying to
take you anywhere but here.

--------------------
Today’s Experiment:
--------------------

While it is possible to do this in your head as a ‘thought experiment’, I have
found it is infinitely more impactful to take the extra minute or so to actually
do it on paper…

1. Draw two circles on a piece of paper.

2. Next, draw two horizontal lines across the middle of the first circle, forming
a narrow band (like the equator). In the second circle, draw one horizontal line
near the top of the circle and one near the bottom (like the Tropics of Cancer
and Capricorn for those of you who remember your Geography!)

3. Now fill in the sections of each circle from top to bottom as follows: Past,
Present, Future

4. The first circle represents the way most of us live – the majority of our time
in the past or future with just a few precious moments each day, week, month or
year solidly grounded in the present. The second represents what’s possible –
living in the depth and breadth of the present moment while always able to dip
into the past or future as necessary.

5. Choose one day this week to really experiment with living moment by moment.
Instead of beating yourself up each time you ‘wake up’ to find yourself lost in
the past or future, congratulate yourself for noticing, find the moment, and
enjoy!

Have fun and learn heaps (in this moment, as opposed to when you get round to it…
:-)

With love,
michael

I accept balance, harmony, and grace in all aspects of my
life.

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation presents the concept of the Receiving/
Accepting affirmations clearly, simply, concisely. We
could make it shorter by saying "I accept balance." However,
to articulate (and feel) the specific elements we wish to
accept is clarifying both to the recipient and to the
Universe. How we feel is important, for if we feel we are
compromising or giving up something, we are not truly
"accepting." Acceptance is clear and clean, without
conditions or regrets or doubts.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
The article "Fire Free Bird" speaks about this kind of
acceptance, although I use the word "surrender" in the
article. This short article might be inspiring if you are
struggling or are challenged with the idea of balance.
Likely, you have developed a style of outward action for
making things happen -- a powerful skill in many settings.
When you are progressing on your spiritual journey, though,
it is important to blend this quality of outer action with
the quality of receptivity or acceptance. That is balance.
You may find that you have to go through an interim step to
stop the outward action or aggressiveness so that you can
experience acceptance as a distinct dynamic.

"Raising Your Sights"



"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is akind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security."

-- Albert Einstein

To grow in consciousness, we expand our perspectives on life. So how do we do that? The more we work with the universal -- the concept of unity and wholeness, the more everything makes sense. Parts have meaning when they are understood to be parts of a bigger picture.

Consciousness is all about relationships -- especially how the lower relates to the higher and how the darkness can exist within the light. Hold and experience contradictions like anger with love. Let opposites coexist in you without choosing one over the other.

"Higher consciousness, enLIGHTenment, comes from meaningful experiences and lessons passed with the understanding that there truly is only one law - the Law of Love. When one leads a life expressing this belief, the mind and heart begin to open to new realities, and other dimensional truths become known."

-- Dr. Norma Milanovich & Dr. Shirley McCune

Make this a friendly day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Balance, you are my friend. You help me to live in integrity.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Personifying balance can help us to accept this dynamic into
our lives. If we are constantly trying to MAKE things
balance, we are not in a friendship, but a contest.
Integrity is balance -- balance of the inner and outer,
balance of above and below, balance of left and right. We
often equate integrity with honesty, which is certainly an
important element of integrity. Thinking of balance as
integrity opens another facet of this theme that we are
exploring this month.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you work with today's affirmation, consider the many
friends in your life. People and things and ideas might
come to your mind. If you have a friendship with your car
and your computer, your experiences are different from those
created if you see your car or your computer as your enemy
or as a set of metal and plastic parts. Take a few moments
today to acknowledge several friends. Thank them for being
in your life -- either directly to them or with private
thoughts of gratitude. Remember family and neighbors and
long-ago acquaintances and former co-workers and grade
school teachers. If faces of enemies pop into your mind,
see them as friends. The best way to destroy your enemies
is to make them your friends.

Antidote...

"Good humor is tonic for the mind and body. It is the
best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business
asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human
burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and
contentment."
--Grenville Kleiser


Make this an understanding day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear God, allow me to see balance in a way that I can
understand.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This is one of my favorite affirmations. I like its
simplicity. We all look through our own eyes to see our
world. We all have different lenses and preferences and
backgrounds and ways of seeing. Some individuals may be
stimulated into understanding balance by seeing children in
a playground on a seesaw or by watching a river flow gently
on a warm spring day or by feeling a glow. Others may
understand balance by getting sick and recovering or by
losing a job and finding one that is more suitable than the
first. Still others may learn about balance by going on a
spiritual retreat or workshop.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
When I use the word "balance" or the phrase "energetic
balance" in the context of my consulting work, I think of
all parts being in harmony with each other -- as a symphony.
I look at many different layers and levels of the energy
field, balancing the energy within each. I balance the
energy moving from the top down and the bottom up. I also
notice how parts of one layer or level balance or
communicate with others (e.g. how the liver is processing
anger; how a person's solar plexus is managing a job
conflict). So, I see balance as related to (and sometimes
synonymous with) clarity, communication, harmony, peace,
health, love, and light. As part of your understanding
balance more deeply for yourself, consider the words and
concepts and experiences that you associate with balance.

"You Are Never A Victim"



"When we blame, we give away our power."

-- Greg Anderson

ALL of our personal physical, psychological, and social problems arise from a lack of alignment between the body, emotions, mind and the soul. As a result, we are never victims of outside forces.

The soul challenges us to grow with problems, illnesses and/or injuries. These painful events trigger our subconscious blocks. This gives us the opportunity to SEE the blocks and release them.

"People who consider themselves victims of their circumstances will always remain victims unless they develop a greater vision for their lives."

-- Stedman Graham

"No matter how frustrated you may feel, there is Always a way out. In every situation that arises, we choose to be powerful or powerless. It may not always feel like it, but it is a choice. And there are consequences for these choices in terms of the results we get, and the subsequent increase or decrease in our power and influence. If we choose powerlessness, it is often because we doubt there is any other option."

-- Blaine Lee

"Daily Forgiveness"



"As long as you don't forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy rent-free space in your mind."

-- Isabelle Holland

We cannot avoid daily resentment and thoughts of guilt. They are a part of human nature. What we can do is release their grip on us. We can forgive others and ourselves daily.

Forgiveness requires nothing in return. There are no conditions. It gets rid of old baggage and clears up unfinished business. It leads us to a life of authenticity, lightness and directness. Forgiveness is the highest form of letting go of resentment and ego.

True forgiveness is more than an apology, understanding and acceptance. There is an element of recreating and re-imagining. There is a need to envision ourselves as more loving, interdependent, courageous and compassionate. Forgiveness requires honouring the sacred journey of learning about life - our life and others'.

"Whatever we have done, we can always make amends for it without ever looking back in guilt or sorrow."

-- Eknath Easwaran

Make this a balanced day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I allow balance to flow through me and to act as me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation challenges us to BECOME balance, to BE
balance. As balance flows through us, we become familiar
with its vibration. In order for something to "act as" us,
we must become it. We must BE what we desire. Balance is
not something outside ourselves, but inside. Other people's
perceptions of our sense of balance may be interesting
information (worthy of an appropriate amount of our
attention as a piece of data), yet our own perceptions about
balance are essential for our health and satisfaction.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
To enhance your process as you say or work with today's
affirmation, consider these questions. As you FEEL balance
flow through you, what does it feel like? As you SEE
balance flow through you, what does it look like? As you
SENSE balance flow through you, what do you sense? As you
LISTEN to the sounds of balance, what do you hear? As you
VIBRATE to balance, what do you become? These questions
expand your consciousness about balance so that you can more
easily become at one with it.

Every Moment...

Forget-me-not
"Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is
endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and
everything your heart desires must come to you." ~Gandhi

SUCCESS IS WITHIN YOU




How things look on the outside of you always depends on
how things are on the inside of you.

Your thoughts have brought you to where you are today.
Your actions always mirror your thoughts.
Take a good look at where you are and what you're doing,
and you can understand what you've been thinking.
Your mind is your true essence.

Your behavior is the perpetual revealing of yourself.
What you do, tells everyone who and what you are.

Change your thoughts and you can change your position in life.
You can start this process at anytime.
Why not start today?

"What If... ?"



"The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper."

-- Eden Phillpotts

What if you were to pretend that you were healthy, wealthy and wise? What if you were to decide to be happy, no matter what else was happening?

Take the power of ‘what if...’ seriously, and you will grasp the power to create a world of your own design. Everything, EVERYTHING begins in the imagination. Put it to work constructively for you.

"The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes."

-- William James

"Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

Make this a smooth day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I receive messages of balance from the Universe. I flow
like a smooth river in this balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The balance of the Universe is infallible. In the
narrowness of our human focus, we often cannot see the
perfection of it all. When it is hardest to see, THAT is
the time when we most need to trust, to put ourselves in the
hands of the divine. It is easy to trust when we can see
the evidence of balance in the outer world. Now, however,
we are called upon to trust at a deeper level, to trust in
the invisible rather than the visible. We let the universal
river carry us.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider several areas of life that you try hard to balance,
try to MAKE balance -- perhaps work and play, your
checkbook, fairness or honesty in a particular relationship,
food, or reactions. Notice how you use your weekend to try
to achieve a balance for the week's activities. Remind
yourself of the over-arching intention you set for balance.
Look deeply at your own image or interpretation of "flow
like a smooth river" or maybe it is a bubbling brook or
raging ocean or deep pool or shallow puddle. What do you
need to accept into your life to experience balance as you
desire it?

ABOUT THE BOOK OF THE MONTH RECOMMENDATION
Since so much of my work is related to working with energy
and energy fields, I have frequently been asked over a
period of many years to recommend books about energy.
Usually I suggested one or two books that I think a
particular individual will like that might address some
relevant topics, but now I finally have found a book I feel
good about recommending to anyone who is interested in
energy, energy healing, and energy fields. It is called
"Energy Medicine" by Donna Eden. You may read my book

I open to allow balance and magical synchronicity to operate
in my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Our world is so filled with images and messages about MAKING
things happen that it can sometimes be a shock to even
consider LETTING them happen. When we are in the midst of
synchronicity we know that our higher intelligence is in
charge, transcending the human manipulation that we might
construct. It is such a joy when we get out of our own way
and let the natural balance of life answer our desires in
its way. The flow and processes of the Universe are truly
magical if we only let go of the reins of control and allow.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Recently, I did a consultation with someone I know to be an
incredibly powerful person, with a wide span of influence.
He is in a shift of merging the BEING and the DOING, the
MAKING and the LETTING. Intellectually, he made the shift
many years ago -- that was easy for him. NOW he is making
the shift emotionally and physically -- these are more
challenging for him. Spiritually, no shift was really
required for him. One of the questions he asked me was
"Does everyone go through this or is my process unique?"
To which I answered, "yes." We are all One and we are
unique emanations. There are processes that we all share,
in our own unique ways.

Make this an ACCEPTional week!



ABOUT RECEIVING/ACCEPTING AFFIRMATIONS and BALANCE
The ability to be receptive (a feminine quality) in a
masculine and male-oriented society is, in itself, a
demonstration of balance. Truly, we must balance the
masculine and feminine energies as well as other energies so
that one part neither dominates nor distorts the whole (nor
believes that one part is the whole). We open. We open to
allow. We open to allow so that we can accept and receive.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider this week what you are most in need of accepting
into your life so that you experience balance. Perhaps such
qualities as love or peace or calmness or clarity. Perhaps
new ideas. Or a new way of thinking. Notice whether you
believe that you must accept something from outside yourself
or from inside yourself. Notice also any uneasiness about
receptivity or acceptance. How do you define and achieve
balance in your portion of the world?

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent receiving and accepting for Balance, I would
choose the March 11 affirmation: "Dear God, allow me to see
balance in a way that I can understand." This simple prayer
supports you in making balance real and present in your
life, not as a theory or a dream or a fantasy.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

March 8:
I open to allow balance and magical synchronicity to operate
in my life.

March 9:
I receive messages of balance from the Universe. I flow
like a smooth river in this balance.

March 10:
I allow balance to flow through me and to act as me.

March 11:
Dear God, allow me to see balance in a way that I can

Balance, you are my friend. You help me to live in
integrity.

March 13:
I accept balance, harmony, and grace in all aspects of my
life.

"Reflect On Your Life"

poppies

"Reflection is one of the most underused yet powerful tools for success."

-- Richard Carlson

Regularly, take time to reflect on what has been happening in your life. Step back to work ON your life instead of IN it. See yourself as the C.E.O. of your own personal company, or as the captain of your own ship. Are you navigating the waves as well as you might?

Stepping back helps us see a bigger, more inclusive picture. Small events make more sense in the bigger scheme of things.

"Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action."

-- James Levin

Hay House Radio, Flowdreaming!!!

Flowdreaming with Summer McStravick

Listen to Flowdreaming from in the archive:

September 27, 2005: Power Manifesting
Today’s whole show is for sharing our successes and imparting tips and techniques we've discovered while manifesting or Flowdreaming. What really works for you? What doesn't? Do you believe that we should never use the words "no" or "not" when we manifest? Let's troubleshoot our manifesting abilities today. This is a great hour for picking up all kinds of useful things to try.

August 23, 2005: Flowdreaming with Children
Children have enormous manifesting power, largely because they haven't been persuaded to believe that "magic" is impossible, and because they are so attuned to their emotions. Imagine your life if you had been taught early that you could energetically "seed" the events and situations you wanted to grow up into. She talks about ways that kids can use Flowdreaming, and explore other mental techniques whose simplicity makes them useful for adults, too.


August 9, 2005: Flowdreaming for Manifesting Anything You Want!
Today we'll cover the nuts and bolts of Flowdreaming—including exactly how to Flowdream. You'll discover the "magnetizing" technique, the "energy weaving" technique, and other ways to create new patterns of energy in your life. This is Manifesting 101 all over again, but in even greater detail.

Make this a wonder-full day!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The
One, The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining
thoughts and feelings of struggle and injustice.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation is the last of the releasing ones with this
theme, so we give the remains of non-balance to Spirit for
purification. We select any (or all!) designations of
higher power. We cannot have too much higher power. We
give up (UP, UP, UP) struggle and belief in struggle. We
give up (UP, UP, UP) injustice and belief in injustice. We
give up (UP, UP, UP) disharmony and belief in disharmony.
We let Spirit purify us.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
While you are reading or saying today's affirmation, you may
want to let your breathing follow the rhythm of the words:
the in-breath brings in an awareness of Spirit and the
out-breath releases those remaining thoughts and feelings of
struggle and injustice, or anything else you associate with
the opposite of balance as you have defined it. Let this
affirmation empty you out so that you can fill yourself with
those things that you desire. Of course, if you WANT to
hang on to struggle and injustice...... Know that it is your
choice.

available to receive the blessings of life. You may want
to re-visit your over-arching intention for balance as you
shift from one type of affirmation to another.

YOU ALWAYS HAVE A CHANCE



Miracle
You have the power to do things you never dreamed possible.
This power becomes available to you
as soon as you change your beliefs.
If you did all the things you're capable of doing,
you would literally amaze yourself.

You know what you are today,
but not what you may become tomorrow.
Look at things as you want them to be,
and then make those things happen.
You don't know what you can do until you try.

You can do anything you wish to do,
have anything you wish to have,
be anything you wish to be.

Never say never.

"Need Help?"

kindness

"Asking for help doesn’t mean that we are weak or incompetent. It usually indicates an advanced level of honesty and intelligence."

-- Anne Wilson Schaef

The path of healing begins with awareness that things can be different. We must be willing to open to the potential, the possibility for change.

We also need to acknowledge that we are not in this experience alone, without support. The divine power of love is here for us, if we are willing to open to receive it. Sincerely ask for help and loving support will manifest in both mundane and magical ways.

"The healthy, the strong individual, is the one who asks for help when he needs it. Whether he has an abscess on his knee or in his soul."

-- Rona Barrett

APPLY PERSISTENCE TO YOUR POSSIBILITIES




Your success is not a matter of idle chance,
it's a matter of making the right choices.
Success is not something you wait for,
but rather something you achieve with effort.
Things won't turn up in this world until you turn them up.

Success is neither magical nor mysterious.
The people that truly succeed in the world
are the people who look for the circumstances they want,
and, if they can't find them, they make them.

Don't sit on the sidelines, get in the game.
Your access to success has no real limits.
The great opportunity in your life is where you are right now.

Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity for you.
You have grand opportunities all around you.
Open your eyes, and you will find it.

If you have the desire, you have the power to be successful.
Taking continuous action is all that is required.

I let go of thoughts that suggest there is no balance. I
stop creating images that life is unfair and start creating
images of joy.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation invites us to dissolve and erase ideas
and beliefs that block our acceptance of balance. We may
find ourselves working successfully with this affirmation
without even knowing precisely what those ideas and beliefs
are OR we may find information jumps out at us everywhere we
turn today. When our journey is the latter, it is time for
us to turn our attention from these images that we do not
want to images that we do want. We want to give this
releasing process the proper attention -- just enough to
recognize what we do not want -- so that we can give our
attention intentionally to what we do want. As thoughts of
imbalance and unfairness and injustice and indecision come
into our conscious awareness, we let them flow from us, and
give our focus to balance and fairness and justice and decision.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Are you noticing that you and others are releasing old stuff
as you work with these Releasing/Cleansing affirmations?
The power of this process (as well as any other self-
development processes) is more greatly enhanced when you
sharpen your awareness of your own process and the processes
of others. What do you notice today about balance or
imbalance? about fairness or unfairness? about life in any
aspect? To what do you most want to give your attention?

The languages that God speaks


Forgiveness
     A Spanish missionary was visiting an island when he came across three Aztec priests.
     “How do you pray?” asked the priest.
     “We have only one prayer, “ answered one of the Aztecs. “We say: “God, You are three, we are three. Have mercy on us.”
     “Beautiful prayer,” said the missionary. “But it is not exactly the prayer that God hears. I shall teach you a much better one.”
     The priest taught them a Catholic prayer and went on his way to spread the Gospel among others. Years later, on the ship taking him back to Spain, he stopped at that island once more. From the deck he saw the three holy men on the beach – and waved farewell to them.
      At that moment the three began to walk on the water towards him.
     “Father! Father!” shouted one of them, approaching the ship. “Teach us again the prayer that God hears, because we can’t remember it!”
     “It doesn’t matter,” said the missionary, seeing the miracle. And he asked God to forgive him for not understanding before that He spoke all languages.


Below are some of those prayers:

     Dhammapada (attributed to Buddha)
     
Instead of a thousand words,
     Better just one,
     One that brings peace.
     Instead of a thousand verses,
     Better just one,
     One that shows beauty.
     Instead of a thousand songs,
     Better just one,
     One that spreads joy.


Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi, 13th century

     Out there, besides what is right and what is wrong, there is an enormous field.
     That is where we will meet.


Prophet Mohammed, 7th century
     
Oh Allah! I come to you because you know all, even what is hidden.
      If what I am doing is good for me and my religion, for my life now and later, then let the task be easy and blessed.
      If what I am doing now is bad for me and my religion, for my life now and later, then keep me far from this task.


Jesus of Nazareth, Matthew 7;7-8

     Ask, and it shall be given you;
      seek and you shall find;
      knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
     For every one that asks receives;
     and he that seeks finds:
     And to him that knocks,
     it shall be opened.


Jewish prayer for peace
      We shall go the mountain of the Lord, where we shall walk with Him. We shall change our swords into plows and our spears into baskets for harvesting fruit.
      Let no nation raise its sword against another, and let us never learn the art of war.
      And no-one should fear his neighbor, because thus spoke the Lord.


Lao Tsu, China – 6th century B.C.

     For there to be peace in the world, the nations must live in peace.
     For there to be peace among nations, cities must not rise up against one another.
     For there to be peace in the cities, neighbors must get on well with one another.
     For there to be peace among neighbors, harmony must reign in the home.
     For there to be harmony at home, it must be found in your own heart.

I cut negative bonds of attachment to imbalance and
inequality. I untie the duality of bondage and control.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Cutting negative bonds of attachment is a powerful technique
for releasing and detaching ourselves from someone or
something. We can perceive or imagine the quality or
characteristics of the bonds between ourselves and whatever
keeps us from experiencing balance. My definition of a
technique is a method to teach us to do something so well
that we do not need the technique -- similar to training
wheels on a child's bicycle. As we experiment with powerful
techniques (such as many that I mention, and those from
other sources), we must remember that they are ONLY tools
-- WE are the power. Each one of us has incredible power.
If some technique teaches us about our own power, it has
done its job. If the author of a technique tells us that
the technique is required in order for us to be powerful, it
has not served us, but the author.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
You can use your imagination to check the bonds that keep
you attached to someone or something. This may be a belief
that someone or something has power over you. Without
focusing on the person or thing to which you are negatively
attached, examine the bonds. Are the bonds tight? What
color are they? How thick are they? Of what substance are
they? What instrument is required to cut the bonds? When
you are ready, cut them. As you cut the bonds, also cut or
untie the belief that the bondage of one + the control of
another = balance. This equation is part of an old paradigm
whose time is of the past. The releasing process of this
week assists you in moving into a new paradigm and a new
definition of balance.

"What Are You Lacking?"

vei

"Money cannot fill an empty soul."

-- Julia Cameron & Mark Bryan

Where in your life are you experiencing lack?

Are you experiencing a lack of self esteem? Of humour? Of energy? Of love? Of money and abundance?

Whatever you believe you are missing, it is there to be claimed. The first step starts with shifting your perspective. See the glass as half full rather than half empty. Focus on accepting what you DO have, and more will be attracted to you.

"Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend... when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present -- love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure -- the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth."

-- Sarah Ban Breathnach

YOUR DREAMS CAN COME TRUE



You are never given a wish
without also being given the power to make it come true.

The achievement of your goal is assured
the moment you commit yourself to it.
If you have the desire, you have the power to attain it.

You can have anything you want in life
if you're willing to make sacrifices to get it.

Your dreams can come true if you pursue them.
Where there's a will, there's always a way.

Make this a purifying day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I release memories that allowed belief in instability and
revenge. Impurities dissolve without pollution as I
manifest new experiences that become tomorrow's pleasant
memories.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Memories of experiences can be recorded on any layer/level
of the energy field. We may be conscious of the memories or
not. They may sit there quietly for many years, either
polluting or enhancing our relationships. As we release old
resistance, we may feel the feelings or think the thoughts
that relate to those memories. The thoughts and feelings
may come as a flash or a thud or laughter or fear.
Analyzing this stuff is like analyzing the trash in our
trash masher -- messy and not very productive. The
shortened version of this affirmation is, "I release."

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Remember "to release" means "to let go." As you let go of
what you do not need, you become happier and clearer and
friendlier. In this way, you benefit first and others
around you benefit also. While you are not responsible for
anyone else's personal development, you are connected ("we
is all one") and can not separate yourself from the whole.
The stuff that is releasing from you and others during this
purification process has the potential of being toxic waste
or rich fertilizer. Intention can dissolve the impurities
in an instant -- if you prefer that the release take a long
time, that is your choice.
