“The law of flotation was not discovered by contemplating the sinking of things, but by contemplating the floating of things.”

– Thomas Troward

What are you contemplating today? Is it in alignment with what you desire? I wish you the happiest of contemplations, may they lead you to wonderful discoveries and enhance your reality, your life experience. We design our life with our thoughts and actions. May your life be a design of your liking.

Ah, now that touches the spirit. It is a beautiful evening here and I’m going to make some green tea in a few minutes, enjoy the last rays of daylight, and meditate on this quote.

We are contemplating big decisions: leaving Greece and moving to Oz. I will do my best to float. :)

Oh I send you the energy to float Chania Girl! Contemplating leaving Greece, that is a big decision. I wish you Angels to guide you in your decisions. May they share their wings if you need them.

Hi Aileen,

A lovely quote – I think of it as going with the flow. Just last week in the hot tub at Esalen I asked someone to “float” me, hold me up so I could just let go and float.

I love floating, both physically and figuratively.

Thanks so much.
Lauren

Hi Aileen,
I love this quote from Thomas Troward. He was a great contributor to New Thought of which I am a student.

Today, I am contemplating my new minimalist future – downsizing to a smaller home, carrying less debt, then being able to devote more time to writing & Mystic Musings and giving mediumship readings.

Thanks for this lovely quote Aileen!

I love this quote. It is so true, the Wright Brothers did not figure out flight by thinking about how to stay on the ground. We must check our perspective and notice our approach for it may be holding us back. I have often said when up against a big challenge, one can find a hundred reasons why this won’t work, the key is to find the one reason it will work!
