Authentic Application of Spiritual Practice in Everyday Life – practical, inspiring, empowering: a cycle of seven weekends throughout the course of one year.
An optimist sees the doughnut, a pessimist only sees the hole. It is all a case of perspective – the thing itself doesn’t change, it is how we perceive it. We can look on the bright side and choose to rejoice in all that is whole, beautiful, and happy. No need to merely focus on the cracked, broken and difficult; unless, of course, you are going to take the proverbial bull by the horns and do something about it.
However, if we choose to see and acknowledge a daily round which positively makes the very most of each and every little thing which comes our way, we might be surprised – nay, astonished – to find that a lot of the huge, dark,
It is not solely about perception though – that is just
one facet of this down-to-earth approach; there is the question of what action do we take: do we smile? or frown? do we offer a
kind word? or do we utter an expletive or criticism? Are we positive or negative? It is as simple as that. When we actively choose the
positive action or outlook it begins to have a physical impact on our bodies
which in turn effects our emotional mood and we end up feeling better. Not only do we begin to make the world around us that bit better but we actively help ourselves to be happier too.
It is as simple as that.
However, simple is not necessarily easy! The trick here is to establish positive, straightforward patterns of basic behaviour and then consciously practice them until – like anything done often enough – they become an unconscious habit and integrate permanently into our daily life.
Don’t look for magical events – make a mundane task magical instead.
