Just because something is normal, doesn’t make it right, ethical, correct, or moral. Like blurry eyes or smudged up glasses, our perception of life is skewed. Kindness and humility help clear it up.
When we overthink and under-ponder, we open up to confusion and close our door to wonder. Be full of wonder.
Some of our thoughts are facts; some are lies; and many are a combination. It’s important to be able to tell them apart. Pursue and embrace thoughts and ideas that inspire you. Resist and avoid thoughts and ideas that torment you. Filter the pollutants & impurities out of your stream of thoughts. Only let helpful thoughts flow into your consciousness.
When thoughts and feelings contradict reality, don’t allow them to deceive you. Make them align with truth.
You will see what you’re attentive to. Focus on hate and you’ll see hate. Look for kindness and you will find it. How you see life depends on the lenses that you look through. Choose your lenses well.
The brain may work like a computer, but it need an operator who directs and controls it (that’s you). Use your mind for serenity not chaos. You have the right to resist inner torment and to delight in insight. Dump the demons that disturb you and refuse to let them disrupt your peace.
Your mind is like a mirror. What you see depends on how you adjust it. Align your mind so it beholds the beauty life offers. Birds singing and flowers call us to delight.
Neither frenzy or apathy make life better. Wise choices, persistently implemented, do.
Overcome unkindness. Use persistent kindness and compassion to turn adversaries into well-wishers.
Arise from your systemic rut today. Refresh your awareness. Notice more beauty. Discover new things to appreciate. Habit is a great way for dealing with routine chores, but not so good for discovering the purpose and meaning of your life.
