I consciously create the legacy I wish to leave.
I act in harmony with how I wish to one day be remembered.
How we remember someone when they leave this world is largely the result of how they lived. We are remembered for our words and our deeds. It is not the selfish, intolerant and cruel who are remembered as heroes, saints and humanitarians. While no one should live their life worrying about what others think, it can be a nice wake up call to stop and ask, “What do I want to be remembered for when my time here is done?” If the answers are in harmony with how we’re now living, then who we are and how we want to be thought of are aligned. If they are not, it’s never too late to begin living the legacy we desire to leave. It’s not too hard either. To be remembered as a gentle warrior for love, gently love. To be remembered as a shooting star, work toward your dreams. To be remembered as authentic, be yourself.

I set today aside as a day for peace, tranquility and simplicity in my world.
Whether it is found in quiet woods, a soaking bath, on the couch, or in the bedroom, simplicity is something available to us all at any time we choose. And it is a choice. Setting aside one day to be free of lists, deadlines and the hurried pace of existence is a vacation to the soul. Pausing to breathe for a day revitalizes the spirit and revives the soul. There was a time when Sundays were that day, when businesses closed and time seemed to stop. The world may have changed, but we can still create one day for simplicity, for ease, and for relaxed harmony.

My actions are in harmony with my intentions and motivations.
I have no hidden agenda; I live with honesty and integrity.
I say what I mean and I mean what I say.
My words and actions are authentic.
Living a spiritually attuned life requires authenticity, the sort of authenticity expressed as motivations that are in harmony with actions. Living authentically means being free of any hidden agendas in interactions with others or the world. Instead of being nice to the boss in order to get a promotion, the person living authentically is nice to the boss because they are being nice. Someone living authentically will not have an ulterior motive. They give for the sake of giving. They do for the sake of doing. They ask because they are interested. They help because they wish to help. They love for the sake of loving.

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.

I keep my thoughts positive and on what is right, working, and abundant in my life.
If a negative thought enters my mind, I do not give it any merit or attention, I replace it with a positive thought.
I put my mental and emotional attention on the thoughts that promote joy, happiness, feeling good, peace, harmony, gratitude, well-being, empowerment, and love.
Every time you have a thought you plant a seed in your mind that has the potential to grow and become part of your physical experience. This is how you create your world, your tomorrows and your next moments, with your thoughts, planting one seed at a time. The attention we give to those thought-seeds is the fertilizer they need to grow. If a thought merely passes through one’s consciousness, it is unlikely to ever become a manifested experience. But if a thought-seed is fed one’s attention, it is being nurtured and it will begin to grow roots. When the attention we place on our thought-seed is imbued with emotion, we are feeding it with the most powerful fertilizer and is likely to sprout into physical reality. If I have a thought such as, “I am without love.” I have planted a “without love” seed. If I give that thought-seed my continued attention and focus, and if I have strong emotions accompanying my attention, that seed will likely become a manifested experience of being or feeling “without love” in my physical world. This is why it can be so hard to lift ourselves out of a negative state of mind. Every negative thought plants a seed that produces more of the same, leaving us spiraling in a difficult direction. This is also why it is so important to think thoughts of what we want, what we love, what we hope for more of, what we dream of having, and of what is right, functioning, and abundant in our lives. By planting positive thought-seeds, we are growing more of what we love, want, and are grateful for in our lives and experiences. No one grows corn by planting onions.
