… the Earth says ‘Hello!’
It is a beautiful day and we are alive while the Universe has conspired to serve us the best Life there is…
This is how I wish you felt, and maybe this can help…
I wish to live simply. I wish to enjoy the moment, the Present, because Present is all there is.
We can be easily misguided to think how easy it was some fifty years ago to enjoy the moment while high on acid, but the world has changed.
It has. And it has not.
For all of you who have not seen the movie Hair – I strongly suggest you do – the folks in the video are in the emotional turmoil facing everyday fear of being drafted. And that is just a part of their problems. Yet, they are happy.
Not because they do not have problems, but because they are not trying to change things they cannot affect.
We have achieved so much. We have everything: not only can we buy fancy cars and beautiful houses, we are buying health, ordering beauty and are putting ourselves on happiness wait list.
Why is it then, that anxiety and depression are on the increase? Have we learned nothing?
Not so long ago, we wanted things. We used to wait for them. We had to put effort into obtaining them.
No wonder we felt great happiness and joy once our wishes came true.
Today, everything seems attainable, instantly. No wonder we are failing at experiencing true joy and happiness.
Just think of it: how happy would you feel if you had to work (and wait) a whole month to be able to purchase that fancy gadget?
Make yourself wait for things you want…
Try, and see what happens.
