Determined to Have a Good Day

I don’t have bad days… ever. This does not mean I don’t encounter trials like everyone else; I just don’t have bad days.

Every day we are faced with a myriad of situations and decisions which we have no control over. From my perspective they are Divine Stimuli, often occurring only so that I may respond to them in a way that causes me to grow (“growing” meaning to become more full of Love). Not only do our responses to the stimuli of life help shape and transform us, they affect everyone and everything around us as well.

Newton’s third law states that, “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” This is a big picture truth that is describing reality beyond the physical but is also incorporating the internal, the individual, the spirit. With every Kind word you speak, an equal and opposite chain reaction (opposite meaning directionally) is initiated releasing Kindness in every direction and, inevitably, toward you. When you are generous, by necessity, generosity will be returned to you because in the system we call ‘reality’ generosity is to be reciprocated to the generous in order to be perpetuated. Jesus said it this way, “Give and will be given unto you.” If you are negative, nitpicky, whiny, greedy or bitter the system works the same way but with much less desirable returns (as too many know experientially). A good day is the result of choosing to release Goodness and being able to recognize, moment by moment, Goodness being gifted back to you.

It’s your choice what kind of day you are about to have. There is no such thing as a good day or a bad day; there are only days. Just as “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” a ‘good’ day is determined by your willingness to see the good. In closing, and on this note, I want to leave you with a quote from Elizabeth Barrett Browning,

“Earth's crammed with heaven, 
And every common bush afire with God, 
But only he who Sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round and pluck blackberries.”
