For an ordinary day, we can make sure we’re keeping up with everything by watching the news. This will bring us current on the wars, the terrorist attacks, the latest murders, the economy, the gossip, the natural disasters…all of it. We will have an ordinary day.
However, we don’t need to let fear steal our day; we can set our day upon another course. We all have an inner room where we can visit to be cleansed of fear-based thoughts and feelings, and when we begin our morning within it, our mind receives a radiance that illumines our thinking as we go through the day.
As we move through this extraordinary day, let’s remember to do the following:
……Be grateful. Give thanks for eeverything . This will open the heart and shift attention from “my wants and needs” to just gratitude.
……Remember to smile. A smile is like a comforting hand, a warm blanket, a long-lost friend, a blessing.
……Find someone to help. In helping others, we are truly helping and enriching ourselves.
And finally, keep the door to the heart open. This door is always near. Truth opens it. Love opens it. Humility opens it. Sadness can open it, if felt to its center. Silence and time open it if we enter them and don’t just watch them. This is the doorway that let’s us experience the miraculous in the mundane, the extraordinary in the ordinary.
