I am a child of God. I am one with God.

God is! I have not heard Your voice in the murmur of the clouds; I have not seen visions of You in my waking hours; I have not felt Your all-transforming touch but this I know, You are.

I know that Your Light surrounds me, that Your Love envelops me, that Your Power protects me and that Your Presence watches over me always. In countless ways, everyday, I realize that I am not alone, that You are with me.

The longer I live, the more I understand that nothing happens by chance in Your universe or our lives. As I look back, I see how Your Hand guided me at every step and I thank You for Your unconditional love and unceasing blessings.

All I need to do is to stay in touch with You. How? By reminding myself during the day, as often as possible, that You are with me. By relating all I do, with You.

When I see the sunrise, it is Your painting; when I eat food, it is Your power that digests; when I express love to my family, it is Your warmth that comforts; when I work, it is Your intelligence that performs; when I watch TV, it is Your energy that is harnessed.

During the busiest hours I stop for a moment and recall that You are with me. When I have moments of leisure, I share the time with You, talking to You as to my closest friend. This I do for I know God is.

“The rishis wrote in one sentence profundities that commentating scholars busy themselves over for generations,” … “Endless literary controversy is for sluggard minds. What more liberating thought than ‘God is’nay, ‘God’?” Chapter 12, Autobiography of a Yogi, Paramahansa Yogananda.

What most people call thinking is what I call the recycled conditioning of society. Authentic thinking comes from inspiration. The Japanese have a word for thinking, kamkuru, which means “to return to the realm of God.” To me, God is the source of inspiration, and therefore the cause of genuine thinking. – Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith

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
