Have you ever heard the saying that life is what you make it? What are your initial thoughts on life? Do you think it is mundane? Do you think it is hell on earth, or do you think that life is Heaven on Earth? In a book called, Spiritual Liberation, by Michael Bernard Beckwith, he speaks about awakening from a slumber that so many people walk around in on a daily basis. We are truly not awake but merely existing transitioning from one state of apathy to the next. We are not present in many of our daily routines, but we take on the exterior of a robot doing the same tasks over and over without much thought or emotion. However, once we begin to awaken, we will soon realize how beautiful life truly is.

I have spoken in older posts how colors will become more vibrant, sounds will become more vivid, your feelings of love will multiply in leaps and bounds, but your feelings of dislike or even hate will disintegrate and cease to exist. When you start having such overwhelming feelings of love, people may start noticing a change in your attitude. You may be less critical of people who may have rubbed you the wrong way in the past. You may find yourself saying please and thank you more often. You might even feel that you need to express your love to others in ways such as vocalizing your message or sending it via electronic communications.

Life is truly what you make it. If you think life is crap, well it will definitely be crap. However, if you think life is beautiful and wonderful, and you keep telling yourself that message every day, then you will start believing yourself. You will believe what you tell yourself more than what other people will tell you. The next time you look at the grass, the trees, the flowers, truly look at them. Don't just glance at the nature surrounding you, but really look at it and appreciate it. You will soon be finding yourself purposefully looking for the beauty that life possesses!
