5 Simple things you can do today that will make you happy
What we think matters
We can let our thoughts control our lives, or we can be guided by the wisdom of the universe. Our thoughts will keep us small; universal wisdom is rather large.
Pain is mostly in our heads
Of course we can suffer terrible physical pain and losses that seem unbearable. Without discounting this suffering, it's the stuff we manufacture for ourselves in our minds that is often most painful- guilt, resentment, bitterness.
There really is no black and white
The yin yang symbol may be black and white, but each segment of the circle is constantly merging into the other. We perceive dark because of the absence of light; night becomes day - they are complements, not opposites. Without one we could not appreciate the other. And then there is hot, warm, cool, cold, tepid, freezing etc. .
