From The Law of Divine Compensation by Marianne Williamson:
The universe of miracles is where our soul truly lives, even in our mortal forgetfulness. It is not a metaphor, but an actual dimension of consciousness. It is the holy grail of the spiritual quest.
A shift in thinking from fear to love is a miracle. A miracle is not a supernatural event. It is metaphysical. (“Meta” means beyond: thus metaphysical reality refers to a reality that is beyond the physical.) There is nothing supernatural about love or it’s effects; love is our natural state of being…The most powerful, liberating thing we can do is to break from the fear-based thinking that dominates the world—to surrender the mind-set the world has taught us and accept a new one instead.
As I have said to my grandchildren since before they were born,
You are Love and Light in form.
May we, as individuals and as the family of human beings, learn to live this Truth. Be blessed and a blessing as this day unfolds. Peace🕊💫💖
Do your memories bring you joy? Or does remembering take you into a downward spiral? Here is a thought from The Law of Divine Compensation by Marianne Williamson:
Spiritual growth involves giving up the stories of your past so the universe can write a new one.
I turned this into an affirmation because there are still times my past intrudes on my present.
I give up the stories of my past
I allow the Universe to write a new one for me.
Feel free to make it your own. Sit with it, rewrite it, post it somewhere and read it often. You are divinely, eternally loved and the Divine only knows this present moment. There is only now and everything has brought you to this moment of Divine Grace. Many years ago, I heard grace defined as “ whatever I need in the moment.” And the Divine always gives so my part is to receive.
Be blessed dear hearts.
“We represent a whole legacy, and when I say we, I’m speaking for all humans. Our legacy is love; it’s joy; it’s happiness. Let’s enjoy this world. Let’s enjoy one another. We are meant to love one another, not to hate one another. Let’s stop believing that our differences make us superior or inferior to one another. Let’s not believe that lie”
The Fifth Agreement

What am I creating in my personal world? In my thoughts, with my opinions, with my words, with my actions?
What am I creating?
May you be blessed today by the Love and Light of the Divine Within you 🙏🏻💖
This affirmation came to my mind and heart during a time when I was just beginning to grasp the depth of communion or oneness that the Divine brings to my Soul. I often repeat it silently as I fall asleep or when taking a walk. May it be a blessing for you as well. (Because “God” is indefinable, “All That Is” is one of the ways Native American names for God is translated.)
In the Oneness of All That Is
I Am Whole
In the Wholeness of All That Is
I Am One
You are Love and Light in form. May you be blessed and a blessing as this day unfolds.
If you Long for peace, whether within yourself or in our world, then…
Leave self-judgement behind. Whoever taught you to do that was wrong.
Live Peace-fully with yourself.
Even if it only lasts a moment at first, choose not to judge others. Does it ever make you feel better?
Live Peace-fully with others.
Let it begin with me. Let it begin with us, dear hearts.
From page 174 of Deepak Chopra’s book The 13th Disciple:
Every life contains moments when a person sees beyond the illusion. The secret is to pay attention, because once the moment is gone, so is its power to change you. You must be open and alert to signals from your true self.
I sit in my bentwood rocker each morning. I love my rocking chair. It is rattan, made in Taiwan. It came back with me from Guam about 30 years ago. It welcomes me every morning as I settle in with a cup of coffee, inspirational reading, and a time of quiet to form my intention for the day.
This morning I am aware of the stark polarities in my world. Peace/War. Compassion/Understanding. Acceptance/Rejection. Love/Indifference. Hope/Fear.
I breathe into this moment and know that Love is. God is.
And because God is Love and both are indefinable, I am alert, aware, open, seeing, listening, receiving, trusting, be-ing.
What else makes any sense at all. The Divine simply Is. Knowing that, I simply am present in this moment being all that I am, resting in that awareness. It has to be enough because this moment is all there is, all I have. It is everything.
