I inhale peace and I exhale cheerfulness.

Peace is life, restlessness is death. I know that life is not made up of years but of moments. And what I fill these moments with, I get back as life.

Today, whenever I have time, nay now, this moment, I close my eyes, feel my breath and see it flow in and out at its own pace. With each breath, I inhale peace and I exhale cheerfulness. I am one with peace.

Peace is my greatest treasure and I make time everyday to gather the honey of peace from the honeycomb of meditation. With peace in my thoughts and peace in my heart, I connect to the Universe and discover the source of strength, wisdom and love inside me. I experience the miracle of the moment: Peace.

Breathing in I calm my body. Breathing out I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment – Thich Nhat Hang

As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery… we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness. – Dalai Lama quotes (Head of the Dge-lugs-pa order of Tibetan Buddhists, 1989 Nobel Peace Prize)

Today is the best day of my life.

The_Perfect_DayThe perfect day is today, not tomorrow or yesterday.

As I open my eyes to today, I quietly close them again and surcharge myself by breathing deeply a few times, relishing each breath fully. My first thoughts I choose carefully for they set the tone and tenor of the day. I begin with affirmations of gratitude and joy for the key to the perfect day is within me.

I thank the ‘power’ for granting me another sunrise, while millions will watch it no more; for the throbbing heart, while a million others will beat no more. My first thoughts will affirm and rejoice in celebration of being alive. And I get out of bed feeling within me positive emotions of peace, or love or joy or confidence or security.

I gift hugs to my family and each hug bonds us stronger. By giving love, I receive happiness that will surround me during the day, enfold me while I work, protect me as I take risks and watch over me on my return home.

Carrying the portable paradise within, I walk into the day. I move forward calmly active and actively calm, knowing that I am in the right place at the right time doing the right thing and am guided from within.

As I drive to work, every other vehicle is an opportunity to perfect my day, to practice peace and love. I bless each one of them. At traffic lights, as I wait, I affirm loving thoughts reminding myself of the wisdom, power and beauty that lie within me.

I meet everybody and every circumstance with the courage of a hero and the smile of a conqueror. I fill a few seconds at different times of the day with the magic potion of positive self-talk.

I work briskly, quickly, speedily, swiftly, promptly but never hurriedly or hastily. I bless everyone who comes into my day with a simple ‘I bless you’ for who can resist love and goodwill.

As I retire at the end of the day, I recall what I did or did not do or should have done. I introspect objectively, for self-analysis is the key to self-improvement. The positives I reinforce, the negatives I correct.

And how shall I know I lived a perfect day? I shall measure it on the motto: Be Better. If I am better at the end of the day – a little or a lot- I know I have lived a perfect day.

Thus shall I perfect my day and others will soon say, “What a wonderful change has come over him!”

This day I will make the best day of my life. This day I will drink every minute to its full. I will savor its taste and give thanks. I will maketh every hour count and each minute I will trade only for something of value. I will labor harder than ever before and push my muscles until they cry for relief, and then I will continue. I will make more calls than ever before. I will sell more goods than ever before. I will earn more gold than ever before. Each minute of today will be more fruitful than hours of yesterday. I will live this day as if it is my last. And if it is not, I shall fall to my knees and give thanks.- Og Mandino, Scroll VI, The Greatest Salesman in the World

I know my priorities and I meet them.


I am harmony. I am composed of different elements and every musical not e of my life has its appropriate importance. None of them can have equal significance, for if they did, there would be noise and no melody in my life at all.

I am harmony. Every aspect of my life takes a proportionate share of my time and energy. I do not fret and fume about balancing my resources in order to see that each department gets an identical amount. I realize that harmony is all about knowing priorities and meeting them. Only then do I create a timeless  symphony.

I am harmony. Every person I meet sings a different song and I appreciate it. Since I know it, I accompany his or her tune and add a note to it. Thus I will contribute to the album of brotherhood.

Harmony, proportion, symmetry, balance: these nouns mean aesthetic arrangement marked by proper distribution of elements. Harmony is the pleasing interaction or appropriate combination of elements: the harmony of your facial features. Proportion is the agreeable relation of parts within a whole: a house with rooms of gracious proportion. Symmetry and balance both imply an arrangement of parts on either side of a dividing line, but symmetry frequently emphasizes mirror-image correspondence of parts, while balance often suggests dissimilar parts that offset each other harmoniously: flowers planted in perfect symmetry around the pool.“In all perfectly beautiful objects, there is found the opposition of one part to another, and a reciprocal balance” (John Ruskin).  – Answers.com

(Speaking on Harmony) We all know someone who has all their financial ducks in a row—a real go-getter with a flourishing business and an impressive portfolio—whose personal life is in shambles. There’s no one to share their success with, or their “life partner” is someone they don’t even know anymore. In one area of life, this superstar earns rave reviews, yet in another area, they’re hurting bad! – healthygreenmoms

Think of a scale. In perfect balance, nothing’s happening. There’s no dynamism, no life or vibrancy. Now, think of a jazz band in action—the life and vibrancy are palpable, aren’t they? The performers in this band have less to do with playing the melody as written and more to do with improvising. They give life to nuance and the music takes shape in the moment. That’s harmony. The different parts aren’t balanced—sometimes the saxophone leads. Sometimes it’s the bass, or the drum or lead guitar. Whatever instrument is out in front at the moment, they’re all contributing, all creating that amazing thing called music. Each musician plays his part of a magical, magnificent whole. James Ray
