Poem: The Hug – The Affirmation Spot for Saturday February 13, 2010

“THE HUG”

By Ray Davis
Copyright 1997

Tender moments spent in her embrace
No Mozart concerto, no gentle April day,
whatever charms they may possess,
can make me feel alive that way.

Two souls profoundly engaged.
Two hearts feeling love’s gentle tug.
A rapturous intermingling,
while enjoying a simple hug.

Stay inspired!

60 Valentine’s Day Affirmations – The Affirmation Spot for Friday February 12, 2010

This Sunday is Valentine’s Day. It’s a day when we celebrate the concept of romatic love. For those of you fortunate enough to have that special someone in your life, congratulations. Enjoy and cherish that opportunity to spend your life with someone who means the world to you. What an amazing gift to find that best friend, partner, and lover for life.

For those still searching, take heart. Use this Valentine’s Day to celebrate your love for yourself. It’s a lot better than spending the day unhappy and depressed. When was the last time you did something really nice for yourself? Do it Sunday!

I spent a lot of Valentine’s Days wishing I could find that special person to make that special connection. It was when I began affirming and consciously attracting that person rather than wishing that things changed for me.

I was 34 years old when I met April. There is nothing in this world like finding that right someone to spend your life with. Whatever your situation, affirm where you are now and affirm where you want your current relationship or a perspective relationship to be.

When you do amazing things begin to happen. Your someone is out there too!

So, this Valentine’s Day, whether you’re in love or in looking, here are some affirmations to celebrate, attract, and appreciate love into your life.

poet_pen_rs.jpgThis poem is an affirmation. I wrote this poem in 1994 as an expression of love for a certain person. However, as time passed, I realized that this poem can actually apply either to a romantic connection or to love in the broader sense.

“Opportunity” dares you to believe in love, trust in love, and to unabashedly share it with a special someone or with the world. It asks the eternal question of one who might procrastinate in sharing the love, “If not now, when?”

Read it and share it in the spirit that it speaks to you.



“The Opportunity of a Forever”

 Never before in time and space
has this moment come about.
Never shall it come again.
Our lives are built on here and now.


Only fools would let this pass
without feeling what we feel.
Let us be calm and let us be bold;
face the fears before which we kneel.


If it’s our past that holds us back,
then let us create a new future.
One where joy fills our hearts
and these feelings of ours mature.


If it is failure we most fear,
then let us be filled with trust.
Knowing within that nothing is lost
by honestly expressing our love

Metta and The Monk – The Affirmation Spot for Thursday January 24, 2008

Leave your comment on today’s blog


Today’s affirmation is actually a version of a Buddhist meditation called Metta (loving-kindness). This meditation is practiced by directing the following words at yourself. Then spreading them to loved ones and people towards whom you have positive feelings. Then applying them to people that you are neutral towards. Finally, you direct the meditation towards people you view negatively – enemies or people who have hurt you in life.


In my own practice, I have also expanded it to include all people and living things on the Earth and all living things where ever they may exist in the universe. Back in my days as a sales professional, I also would direct this meditation particularly at the customers I planned to call on the next day. It had an uncanny way of opening doors where they appeared to be closed.


“May I be happy. May I be peaceful. May I be free from suffering.” “May (fill in the name) be happy. May (fill in the name) be peaceful. May (fill in the name) be free from suffering.”


cave.jpgToday’s post is a random meandering from a few years ago. During my own meditations, this image of a monk sitting in the entrance to a cave kept appearing. He just sat there playing this old flute and meditating on the sound. He seemed to be communicating with me without saying anything.

How wonderful to remember that there are people out there who spend every waking moment hoping and believing in what the rest of us are capable of becoming.


“The Monk”

Gongs echo in the darkness of the valley below;
one hour to sun up.
Against the mouth of a mountain cave sits a solitary monk;
meditating on the sound of his weathered flute.


Clothed in tattered robe that once was of yellow tint;
he owns nothing in this world
but the peace of mind
born of transcendent joy.


Each morning at this very time he prays with every breath;
that those of us in the world below
would give up our anger, greed, and hatred
and be transformed by the profound bliss he knows.



Be peaceful Be prosperous!

I Have a Dream – The Affirmation Spot for Friday January 17, 2008

This coming Monday we celebrate the birthday of a great man. Like most great people he is either loved (by the overwhelming majority of people) or hated (by a small minority). Great people always inspire us to have an opinion about them. In the humble opinion of this writer, Martin Luther King, Jr. was a great man.

Regardless of whether or not you agreed with his politics he was somone who had conviction. He stood against tremendous injustice. There was a great hypocrisy in our land in his day. A hypocrisy that had gone on too long. He stood up to be a leader and he paid the ultimate price for it.

Few people had a greater influence on modern America than this man. Today, through the magic of YouTube, I am able to share his most famous and, I believe, his crowning moment.

The day is August 28, 1963. 250,000 Americans gathered on the mall in Washington D.C. to listen to Dr. King's speech. Little did they know they were about to hear perhaps the greatest speech ever.

Four and a half decades later his words still inspire. His dream is still an aspiration. His vision is still the future we can all share as soon as we choose that course.


Runtime is 17:57

Your challenges may not be as big, but remember that anything is possible when you "have a dream".

Be peaceful Be prosperous!
