Day 129

Affirmation:

I am the example I wish to see.

I am an example of my highest values and beliefs.

I am an example of the Divine in the physical world.

I am an example of determination, fortitude and perseverance.

I am an example of grace, tolerance and compassion.

I am an example I can be proud of.


So often we look to others to be role models and examples of spiritual courage, fortitude, devotion, charity or enlightenment, such that we do not recognize our own example.   Remember that step you took away from those who did not support you?  A shining example of courage.  The day you took a deep breath and rose again, when every fiber of your being wanted to quit?  Fortitude  in the flesh.   Those infinite moments when you’ve silently whispered, “thank you” to a Universe of love?  Pure devotion.   Every time you’ve offered a smile, a helping hand, shared a dollar, given of your time to sit with a friend or family member?  Beautiful examples of charity.   And all of those intuitive flashes of pure knowing, awareness, and unity?  Enlightenment.    Just for today, let’s see ourselves as our own heroes and our own role models.  Look in the mirror and see the example we are.

Day 135

Affirmation:

I believe that giving and sharing with others is crucial part of the dance of existence.

I am generous toward others.

I always give just a bit more than feels comfortable, easy, or enough.

                    ____________________

Charitable giving is one of the most beautiful aspects of humanity.  When we give something to others in need, we place ourselves squarely in our hearts and help uplift the whole of humanity.  Charitable giving reinforces the awareness that we truly are one human family, on one shared planet, intended to love and support one another whenever and however we can.   When it comes to how much we give, most of us have a comfort zone.  For years my number was twenty.  If I were donating to an organization, I always gave $20.  Twenty felt good.  Twenty felt like enough.  Twenty felt do-able.   Then one day I got a little nudge.   The inner voice said, “How about challenging yourself to give more than feels good to you?”  The idea to give beyond what feels easy, comfortable, do-able and enough, was born.   

When we give just a bit more than is easy,  giving becomes a transformative experience, taking us truly out of ourselves.   Giving  moves to a whole new level of authenticity.   The next time you get ready to make a checkout donation for a $1 ask yourself if you can push that gift a little further.  The next time you get ready to give to your favorite .org charity, consider what you’d planned to give, then consider going just an inch out of the comfort zone.  You’ll be amazed how good one small inch can feel to the heart!

Day 129

Affirmation:

I embrace and accept the light-ness and the dark-ness as essential forces comprising the whole of physical existence. 

I live in a harmonious acceptance of duality, learning from it, and growing into unity, through it.

                _____________________________

Physical life is a never-ending interplay of the forces of duality, of light and dark.  How beautiful it would be to dance only in the light, the joy, the goodness and the glory, but in our world of two-ness and opposites, we can not, nor should we, avoid dancing in the dark.   By resisting or denying the experience of pain, suffering, and heartache in the world, we only deepen its hold on us.  We can only truly be free of darkness when we embrace it, when we accept its presence, when from it we achieve the greatness of compassion, charity, and forgiveness.  Accepting the dance of duality opens a space in the heart for unity.   Harmony is not found in only having, only loving, only knowing joy, it is found in appreciating the full spectrum of life, from love to hate, from joy to sorrow, from self-pity to gratitude.  Balance is not found in denial but in acceptance.  See life as this dance, a constant and necessary interplay of polarity and opposing forces, creating and destroying, coming together and tearing apart.  Embrace the whole of experience, the shadows and the source,  and you will begin to possess an equanimity that allows you to dance with the entirety.
