Attitude, perception and experience

The world is a nice place. Is it vitally important to be aware of this. The world is interesting, forgiving, and has constant opportunities. It is important to be happy as and where you are, because with a clear perspective you should be. Awareness of the opportunities you have in the present moment may take a little practice. Sometimes God's plan for us may require listening.It is important to have this attitude of gratitude ingrained in one's life so that we do not wish to keep pressing the 'off switch' when we erroneously believe the world to be unpleasant. The 'off switch' may manifest in procrastination, displacement activities and addictions.
With a mind that sees pleasure and enjoyment and interest in the world (and the things we may take for granted) happiness is obtained.One should give of one's best and have self-love and self-respect. One should never stress overly over things than cannot be changed, and things that can be changed one should adopt an attitude of relaxed urgency. Stress and panic are not functional commodities. With an attitude of common sense fears are put into perspective and may vanish.  
A connection to the Divine is maintained through affirmation. It is important to be truly grateful for everything good in your life, and to really appreciate it. Instead of always wanting something else, truly enjoying where we are and what we have is very liberating, and helps us achieve our goals in life.

    I really like this. A lot of people forget to appreciate what we have got, what we have achieved so far and of immense importance, what others have given us.

    Great blog, keep it up.
