God, what would you have me say and do today?

God, what would you have me say and do today?
Today, think thoughts that are positive,
good and loving.
Do not allow negativity to win over
your mind, emotions,or attitude.
It is not necessary to speak much.
Just think with a heart of love,
and allow these thoughts
to guide your speech
and actions.
No great effort is necessary-
perhaps just gentle redirection when needed.
Be patient today.
Let me work things out while you watch,
while you think with divine intention,
while you stay in touch with me.
Be calm and peaceful today,
even in moments of excitement
and busyness.
Breathe in deeply
and let the goodness of life fill you.
Think, speak, and act from a place of
freshness, blessing, and the joy of being…
of being
alive.
Evening Reflection
This proved to be a really beautiful guidance today, particularly the not necessary to speak much part. It allowed me to connect to the day in a unique manner. My silence made me more aware of my senses.
I noticed that not speaking allowed patience to be a stronger quality in my interactions. I was more aware of my thinking; I was even able to stop the gushing fountain of automatic thinking. I could then tell my brain what to think. In other words, I could think for myself instead of letting my brain think for me. Then I injected positive thought.
Where I would have spoken reflexively, I sometimes simply smiled or touched the other person on the shoulder instead, which proved to me a stronger communication than my words would have been. At other times, I gave a look filled with joy and appreciation. They got it, and I didn’t have to say a word.
Being calm and peaceful in the midst of busyness is akin to being the eye of the storm. What a great feeling! We can all do this in every area of life. Practice breathing in the goodness of life without judgement or labelling-without speaking much at all. Just absorb it, and then offer it from your heart.
