Starting Fresh Each Day

Sometimes I think of the days of my life as exquisite and pristine plants that come into being each day anew. I am afforded the opportunity - as we all are - to nurture this plant, to care for it and bring it into rich fullness. All that is needed for this to happen is that we regard our days as gifts rather than hours to endure until evening rolls around or series of hours to endure until the weekend or a special event or vacation time rolls around. We also need to recognize that if our lives our undergoing difficulty and turmoil, pain and desperation, we nevertheless have the opportunity to make the days of our lives gifts, even if only in our inner world, which is where we always have the ultimate choice ... if we so desire.

We thoughtlessly scatter these gifts - our days - throughout the years of our lives, rarely giving much thought to what we are so mindlessly throwing away ... our very life, because what is our life if not a succession of hours and days?

When I see an image of a dew-covered lushly green leaf such as that depicted here, I am always filled with the immensity of nature's freshness of each new day. That plant or leaf may be gone at the end of the day, but a new one springs forth the next morning.

To view our days as precious is a step in the right direction. The choice to recognize that we may elect to nurture them into verdant life is ours to make. And by making such a conscious choice we enrich our lives.

For much more about making choices, finding meaning in your life, about living consciously, about being aware of your thoughts and feelings, how you react to others and how you love yourself, as well as about choosing to seek your inner well-being above all, in order that you may have a ripple effect on all those who come in contact with you, have a look at my book Rewiring the Soul: Finding the Possible Self, available at Amazon.

A Review From the Back Cover:

"Rewiring the Soul is one the best introductions to the spiritual life I've ever read. Not esoteric but real-world and practical. Read it and Soul is no longer just a dogma, nor hypothesis, it is made real and as much a part of your being as your toes. We usually shut off our inner voice, yet by recognizing this aspect of ourselves we begin to discover our essential nature, our intuitive truth, and that becomes our loving guide. The author illustrates the limitations of living only as the mind's Ego, and demonstrates in practical terms how we can transcend this by awakening a conscious viewpoint, following the path of our intuition and feelings, no longer separated from our body and the reality around us, and integrating at last our Soul's inner guidance and wellspring of love. The implications are profound."
