There is a part of you that is perfect and pure. It is untouched by the less-than-perfect characteristics you have acquired by living in a less than perfect world. This part of you is a still and eternal star. Make time to reach it and this will bring you untold benefit.
It’s a tough life. Some days it’s hard to get out of bed and get going. Why? How come our levels of enthusiasm seem to fall so easily? Why can’t we get ourselves motivated? Simple really. We try to reverse the energy flow in a universe where all energy is radiating outwards. We try to break one of the spiritual laws.

We are taught that winning and achieving is about getting and keeping, when the truth is that it is about giving. Winners are go givers not go-getters, and their definition of winning is not getting one over on the other guy, but overcoming their inertia and giving something of themselves to someone or something other than themselves. This reverses the flow of energy from outside in, to inside out, and as we all know, the deepest satisfaction in life comes from giving.

While it is hard to fathom living a life of giving, when everyone else is on the take, there is an ancient law which ensures that if we did, we would never go without. I think you know what that law is. It allows you to be motivated in a completely different way. No need for any magical formulas or rigid belief systems …try it today!! What you give is what you…
Sow a thought and reap a deed,

Sow a deed and reap a habit,

Sow a habit and reap a character,

Sow a character and reap a destiny.
Each day we all need to recharge our spiritual battery, otherwise the light of our consciousness becomes dim, thoughts become fuzzy, and decisions are impregnated with doubt.

Power is available inside and outside. Inside us we have a spiritual centre, at the core of our consciousness, pure radiant spiritual light. This is what we are. However it is now blocked by our attachments, the record of all our life experiences and many learned beliefs and perceptions. Outside us we have the sun of spirit, the source, invisible to our physical eyes but only one second away when we are able to quieten and focus our mind.

Meditation connects us to both sources of power – that’s why meditation is the way to access the real vitamins and the minerals that spirit craves. The vitamin of pure love and the minerals of truth and wisdom.

Take time to empower yourself today. Sit quietly and connect your mind to each source and allow yourself to recharge and renew.
If I am not getting what I want or need, I may need to adopt a different approach. Instead of focusing on my own desires, I need to understand that perhaps I’m not getting what I want for a reason – perhaps I’m not ready for it yet.

If I concentrate instead on what I have to give to others, I will find that what I need comes to me naturally.
Behind all creation is silence. Silence is the essential condition, the vital ingredient for all creation and all that is created. It is a power in its own right. The artist starts with a blank canvas – silence. The composer places it between and behind the notes. The very ground of your being, out of which comes all your thoughts, is silence.

The way to silence is through meditation. When you arrive in your own silence you will know true freedom and real power. Stop, take a minute, and listen to the silence within you today.
Offer up

Free yourself from forcing, expecting or wanting someone to receive what you think they should take – it could be your idea, opinion, or an opportunity you think they should accept – you can’t make anyone take anything – your own experience probably confirms this.

Offer humbly. Offer gently. Offer as if you are a master, and then let go, and retire like a shy child.

When you can dance the dance between being master and child, you’ll be surprised how much more others will accept what you have to say, and how much more they appreciate your offerings.
When you do not upset yourself thinking about how others must change and instead you concentrate on your own change, good things start to happen.

First, you will feel better about yourself. Second, you will start to have positive feelings towards others and start to understand them. Third, others start having a more positive attitude towards you.

There are many hidden benefits in personal change.
When I start the day with a moment of solitude and contemplation, even the most crowded schedule runs more smoothly.
