         My greatest expectations are

           Realized in a miraculous way.

(An affirmation from "The Conscious Word" daily affirmation)


The gateways to wisdom and knowledge are always open.

"Lord, make me a channel of Your peace,
that where there is hatred, I may bring love,
where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness,
where there is discord, I may bring harmony,
where there is error, I may bring truth,
where there is doubt, I may bring faith,
where there is despair, I may bring hope,
where there are shadows, I may bring light
and where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may comfort, rather than to be comforted,
that I may understand, rather than to be understood
that I may love, rather than to be loved.
For it is by forgetting self, that one finds
it is by forgiving, that one is forgiven
it is by dying that one awakens to eternal life."

- Saint Francis


Today I neither succeeded nor failed...

I just got closer to my goal

Thy wisdom guides me,

        Thy presence dwells within me,

         Thy love keeps me and

          Thy life envelops me now and forevermore

(An affirmation from "The Conscious Word" daily affirmation)

affirmation, prayer and quotation about joy.








“Nothing is lost upon a man who is bent upon growth; nothing wasted on one who is always preparing for … life by keeping eyes, mind and heart open to nature, men, books, experience … and what he gathers serves him at unexpected moments in unforeseen ways.”

- Hamilton Wright Mabie


I Choose Happiness


"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself."  

- Soren Kierkegaard


I am a process through whom God enriches the universe.


"We have to meditate on something. Our mind must dwell on some object. According to what he thinks upon, a man can create an atmosphere of radiance, exuberance, buoyancy; and this brings joy. Or he can carry gloom with him. It is a matter of the habit of thought. If a man's thought, aspiration and action are one, that man is free. He does not blunder. We must build up our own life by our thought. There are many ways by which we can do this. Art, music, even manual work, all can bring ripening to the soul."

- Swami Paramananda

“Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”
- Helen Keller

Thy kingdom has come,

          Thy loving will is done

           In me and all my affairs.

           I rejoice and am glad!

(An affirmation from "The Conscious Word" daily affirmation)


I am a happy, healthy, wholesome, beautiful, positive, and prosperous person.

"Empty your mind of all thoughts.
Let your heart be at peace.
Watch the turmoil of beings,
but contemplate their return.

Each separate being in the universe
returns to the common source.
Returning to the source is serenity.

If you don’t realize the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realize where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
disinterested, amused,
kindhearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.
Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
and when death comes, you are ready."

- Tao Te Ching

(An affirmation from "The Conscious Word" daily affirmation)


All things work together for good for me today.


“I will never understand all the good that a simple smile can accomplish.”

- Mother Teresa


"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."  

- Albert Einstein


This is the day the Lord has made! I will be glad and rejoice in it!

"To change one's life - - Start immediately - -  No exceptions."
- William James


affirmation, prayer and quotation about change  

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It's our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves: who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of the universe.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There is nothing enlightening about shrinking,
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory of the universe
that is within us. It's not just in some of us: it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
And as we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."

- Marianne Williamson


This is a new and wonderful day for me,

there will never be another day like this one.

The very wisdom of God;

          The love, the life and the power of God,

         Are ready and waiting with longing impulse

       To flow out through me without limit!

(An affirmation from "The Conscious Word" daily affirmation)

"The fruit of silence is prayer
the fruit of prayer is faith
the fruit of faith is love
the fruit of love is service
the fruit of service is peace."

- Mother Teresa


Divine Love, surrounds me, enfolds me, & enwraps me,

and I go forth in peace.


"That which we are, we are, and if we are ever to be any better,

now is the time to begin."

- Alfred, Lord Tennyson


I am in the rhythm and flow of ever-changing life

"When you follow your bliss... doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors; and where there wouldn't be a door for anyone else."
- Joseph Campbell

The answers within me come to my awareness with ease.

I am renewed and refreshed.

         My whole being responds to Thy love

          And I am complete in Thee.

(An affirmation from "The Conscious Word" daily affirmation)


"And what is it to work with love? It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth. It is to build a house with affection even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house. It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit. It is to charge all things you fashion with the breath of your own spirit..." Kahlil Gibran - from "The Prophet"

Listen to Kahlil Gibran's masterpiece on CD.  Envelope yourself in its mystical poetic wisdom instead of listening to the radio and see the difference in your own life.   The Prophet Unabridged - $19.98 (Two CD set)


affirmation, prayer and quotation from mother teresa  

"Most of our problems arise from our trying too hard to work things out or from trying to make persons and situations conform to our ideas of how things should be. How quickly problems are dissolved once we are able to let go of them and trust God to work in and through us to bring about good!"



The more I like myself the more others like themselves.


"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your heart. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside, awakes."

- Carl Jung


I am the silence that hollers. I am the stillness that dances. I am the beginning that is the end. I am the newness that is ancient. I am the here that is everywhere. I am eloquence without words. I am human that is divine.

All the Divine Forces

         Hasten to minister

          To my eternal Joy.

(An affirmation from "The Conscious Word" daily affirmation)



Sign on the wall of Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity
children's home in Calcutta:
















If you don't have time to read "As A Man Thinketh" by James Allen, try listening to it while you drive or go out for a walk.  Make use of your time to improve your life.

"He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure. His every thought is allied with power and all difficulties are bravely met and wisely overcome. Thought allied fearlessly to purpose becomes creative force."

This book has inspired millions to begin again, to realize their power to transform their own lives.  Now is the time for you to renew your promise to yourself.  Listen to the CD every day and feel the difference. As A Man Thinketh $14.95


I receive from God my unlimited good,

         Of whatever kind I desire.

          And I radiate that good to everyone I meet,

            For as I give, so shall I receive.

(An affirmation from "The Conscious Word" daily affirmation)
