Stop Trying

Share it Please
If only we'd stop trying to be happy we'd have a pretty good time.
Edith Wharton

If I hate where I am in life, and I hate what is going on in my life, developing a vision for more money and better toys may not necessarily address the issue in a way that will result in an abundant life. Instead, if I base my vision of life on a desire to feel connected, well, generous, and happy, my relationship to what is going on right now in life will become easier to accept--not because I have resigned myself to it, but because I see how everything is part of one awesome whole.

Instead of fighting life and trying to make it be something that it isn’t, I can start exactly where I am by looking for something in my life to appreciate. At the same time, I can practice imagining what it might feel like to be connected to all life, to feel well, to be generous, and to experience happiness.

Seeing Good At Work

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
