“I dreamed I was a butterfly, flitting around in the sky; then I awoke. Now I wonder: Am I a man who dreamt of being a butterfly, or am I a butterfly dreaming that I am a man?” (Zhuangzi)
Life is good—that’s the bottom line! If we experience anything less than good, we must take responsibility. Why not start and change what needs to be corrected. And yes, we start with appreciating that which we already have. I am sure we can find many, many things to be grateful for if we just look deeply enough…
Don’t blame yourself for your past mistakes; we’ve all made them. You did the best you could with the tools given. It’s all relative to our understanding of Truth. Now that we know better, we appreciate this knowledge. This, in turn, will bring us more Understanding, a better existence. It’s a cycle of good producing more good.
With this grateful heart, we can go out into the world and spread the good word. Not by preaching or imposing ourselves on others. Rather by sharing our knowledge and good fortune. Let’s walk the talk and demonstrate positive change by example. Show the world that Life is good! Trust me it’s infectious.
We have to become a less self-absorbed, more kinder nation by appreciating the good we are blessed with and sharing more good with all living beings. Now, it’s time to move forward and soar. Be that beautiful butterfly that you are born to be!
