How You Think Of It




”One has not only an ability to perceive the world but an ability to alter one’s perception of it; more simply, one can change things by the manner in which one looks at them.”
Tom Robbins


Feeling miserable takes no effort, it is the result of no effort and it is to be expected if we mistakenly see the source of happiness as something outside of ourselves.

Feeling miserable drives us inward until we finally realise that we are the only one who can transform misery to bliss by a shift in our own perception. Both misery and bliss are available. You get what you focus on.

Learn to love and forgive the world starting with yourself. Reconcile with the world you saw as your mortal enemy and find out that it never took part in the battle that as left you bruised. The world is like a lost childhood friend who patiently waits for you to come back out and play!

How you view yourself and your world are conscious choices and habits. The lens you choose to view everything through determines how you will interpret what is happening. And from your interpretation you act. And all of this becomes your life.

Do you see your life as a constant string of responsibilities or as a plethora of opportunity? Do you feel crushed by the weight of it or enthralled by its wonders?

Focus on the opportunities all around today.

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.’
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
