Flower of the Day: 11/20/14

“If you have already given five minutes of your day to silence, then maybe it is time to give ten minutes. At the end of each silent period before you open your eyes, affirm to yourself, I am divine light. Observe what you feel when you make this affirmation – do you truly recognize yourself as an embodiment of divine light, or is there still some resistance to affirming this truth? Then, open your eyes, stand up and continue with your journey.”
