We live in this world. There are different perspectives, and different meanings based on our life experiences. Life is how we make it. Each of us is responsible for how we cooperate with life. Joy is ultimately not dependent upon other people, but on our individual relationship with life. Be open to what will happen.
Live your life. You cannot ‘retire” from life. Know that you have an affect without knowing the meaning of it.
Do things to warm the heart and fill the Soul with joy. For me I do 10 practices: music, dance, nature, selectivity, books, laugh, play, smile, imagination and gratitude. The Spirit in which you act.
A thought for the day:
Handle stress, mistakes, and “bad things”, with love, respect and integrity.
