We are but simple creatures grazing on the green fields of life. Our wants are simple; our desires not out of the ordinary. Grazing in the leas is wonderful, it is serene, a calm that permeates our very being, we are happy and content creatures ambling along enjoying the simple life for all has been provided for us, there are no challenges, problems are non-existent, illness is completely unheard of and our idyllic life lasts forever, peace and harmony exists between all the creatures it is as beautiful as The Elysian Fields. Such joy and happiness fills our hearts and minds as we meander our way from one meadow to another in a slow steady pace enjoying the view and our companions along the way. Nice dream isn’t it?
We live in a world where wants and desires can or may vary according to the day of week, the leas are not always green and fertile, if we are content our ambition to live life may be waning, challenges and problems are present, peace and harmony between and within us may be achieved and The Elysian Fields appear in our dreams. It seems the joy and happiness that should be in our heart dissipates with each sorrow we encounter. Life, what an experience. So how do we go about cleaning it up and making it better? Well, it is an individual “thing,” no one can motivate us to get up off our mental duff and go forth to prosper or anything else. We can be inspired, self-motivated, to move forward by others, by their stories, or by realizing what we have to give to the world…us. How odd we would think “us” is the most important thing we have to give to the world, yet, it is the most important thing we can give to the world and be a beacon of inspiration to others, and as we do, we go forth to prosper ourselves and the world around us.
Life is truly simple and uncomplicated but we tend to mix it up and make it difficult. In fact, life is so simple that if anyone told us how simple it was we might just laugh in their face.
As stated in Monday’s post, Afraid Of Being Different?, this is part of the change taking place in the presentation of positive constructive attitudes. What does this mean? It is the difference in the presentation on success. It will include, at times, the spiritual aspect of living and succeeding in life. There will a bit of humor, satirical as it may be, and some asides that are a bit unusual which are meant to bring a smile or a moan and an ugh, while reading an article.
Now to continue…Part 2 tomorrow.
