A Lovely “I Am” Affirmation

on October 27 | in Affirmations | by | with Comments Off on A Lovely “I Am” Affirmation

I have heavy reservations about most affirmations I read. How can the search for material wealth, glory, or permanence be a positive thing for the mind or spirit? One should never deny the whispers of spirit through definitions; most affirmations reinforce the very ego that we must dissolve for the light to shine through.

That said, I’ve written affirmations and shared many others on the home page and social media. The best affirmations are those that don’t deny acceptance of the current moment while simultaneously reminding us of the greater depths from which we rise.

The best way to qualify an affirmation is to slowly read it aloud to yourself. Then stop and breathe, looking inwardly. They all leave some taste in your mouth and stir the weather in your mind. If your inner garden feels vibrant and alive, with the seeds of holiness planted and growing, then it’s a good affirmation.

I’ve just begun reading the book “The Power of I Am” by Joel Osteen, and so far the book seems to be more about positivity than spirituality. Despite that, I keep coming back to the bookmark/card provided inside the front cover and reading it again and again. Although there’s certainly a lot of flaws in it based on my usual thinking, the flavor and weather it leaves you with is wonderful. It’s simply a lovely “I Am” affirmation. I’ve had my wife read it with me, I’ve had my child read it with me, and now I’m having, in a manner of speaking, you read it with me.

Please read it aloud, slowly, to yourself – and then stop and breathe, looking inwardly.

The Power of I Am, Joel Osteen
