Try to be happy for this moment (because this moment is your life), but if you can’t enjoy what’s happening or what you’re doing, try even harder to accept what is. Acceptance of the present moment elicits a certain peace, and brings consciousness to life—with that, we contribute something new to this experience.
Sincere gratitude generates more to be grateful for. This appreciation poem is a kind of ode to the transformations we go through that lead us through our suffering to a deeper experience of being alive, to abundant life.
I am healing with joy, and you can too. I’ve found that when I tap into the energy of joy in simple ways–with laughter, lightheartedness, gratitude, compassion–suffering gives way to healing.
Possibly the quickest way to feel better when you feel bad is to give what you can, where you can. Giving makes you feel good, because in a spiritual sense, you get what you give; what you see in the world outside of you is a reflection of what you have given.
With every post on social media, every comment made to a friend or stranger, and every word we choose to express our feelings is either spreading love or spreading fear. It is our task, and our responsibility, to be conscious of what we’re contributing to in the world.
Love is the way I let go of who I thought I was this whole time, and accept that I’m more than the small thoughts that race through my mind and the chaotic patterns that bring me down. Love is more than a feeling–it’s the way to peace inside and outside.
Being in a “bad mood” really stems from the notion of not having enough joy and love in our lives. Here are five reminders that you’re good enough, and your life is good enough, because you can cultivate more love where it’s lacking and amplify the joy in every day.
Peace only comes when you include all people in your tribe. It can be a challenge, but let’s consider it our spiritual assignment to love each other when we’re tempted to do anything but.
The power of gratitude is displayed in the way it enables us to see the beauty in all things, and the light that’s present in everyone. There’s something to learn in each experience, and with thankful thoughts and a forgiving heart, we can uncover those lessons with more grace and less pain.
Let your light shine; you have it for a reason. You have a wellspring of light within you, and it’s all you need to illuminate your life as well as the lives of all those you meet today.
