I refuse to let my problems swell up inside me like a balloon and disfigure my self-image. I am dealing with them. The balloon is shriveling. I can still function as my whole self.
Today’s Thought for April 18th
I never saw an ugly thing in my life; for let the form of an object be what it may – perspective, light and shade will always make it beautiful.
John Constable (1776 – 1837)
Today’s Meditation for April 18th
Every thought that we have, every image that we create, is a seed of our future reality. To be happy we must see ourselves as happy. First hold in your mind the idea of happiness – ask yourself what it means to you on a mental, emotional and spiritual level. Now imagine yourself being happy from inside out. What does it feel like? How do you behave? How do others respond to you? Having rehearsed this state of happiness in your mind, embody it throughout the day in all your thoughts, feelings and actions.
Adapt this exercise to suit any state or quality that you would like to manifest in our life, such as peace or love.
