Life is a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue, and each shows only what lies in its own focus. Ralph Waldo Emerson

One of my favorite teaching analogies to illustrate how we co-create our life with the Universe is to imagine that we are like a slide projector. When we plug our projector into an inexhaustible source, the light is pure and without form. It’s the slide that determines what colors and shapes will be shown on the screen of life. We can put in any kind of slide we want—any color, almost any topic, even a black one. The light will project our slide no matter what we choose.

What if you were to put in a slide of Abundance, or a slide of beauty that’s tinged with joy and steeped in love? You decide the color and texture of your slides, so pay attention to which ones you choose. Notice how the world looks now.

Spiritual Contemplation: What’s in your slide projector? Are you looking through the lens of fear, the filters of your past, or the picture of the way things “should” be, but aren’t? Are you taking charge of your slide projector?

Affirmation: I choose to view life through the lens of Joy and Abundance. I choose to project onto the screen of my life only those things in alignment with Spiritual Truth!
