Whatís Missing in This Moment?

Observe your mind. Often you will find that when you feel something is missing and cannot rest until you have achieved it, it is just an excuse to not be present and to suffer. These are the tricks of the mind that keep you separate from self: if you were totally present, without any distractions, you could no longer avoid the unknown depths that lie within.

In reality, there is nothing to fear, for how can you be afraid of love? Itís impossible: it would be like fearing the air that we breathe. Open to embrace the unknown, to let go of the control of what you think you need in order to be happy, and you will open to receive the wonderful, magical surprises life has in store.

Maybe you can't know for sure what animals are
feeling. But do you believe that little brown birds
get up in the morning and think about how
depressingly grey the sky is?

Do you think they wonder about how much prettier
all the other birds are, and how their voice is
kind of small? And do they maybe decide that they
just won't sing that day because they are so sad
about all of this?

No, they get up and belt out their songs, day
after day.

I think we should develop a greater appreciation
for all of life - including our own.

I show my thanks by being happy every day.

we should thank God every day for what we have, as there is so many sad things going on in the world today.. Be happy and love one another...

For me, when I concentrate on Gratitude and what I am thankful for each and every day, I find that I am left feeling positivly empowered.

"Those who are content with what they have have everything they could ever want, but those who are always wanting more, of course, they are never content and never have enough."

I don't agree with this, I think for us to spiritually evolve we have to be aware of what is missing. For example tonight there will be so many children in this world will go to bed with empty stomach, knowing this howcan I be content?

Those who are content with what they have have everything they could ever want, but those who are always wanting more, of course, they are never content and never have enough. Also,to reach the former state requires a spiritual eye, while the latter needs only the two eyes. The spiritual eye is the one that would give us the true happiness.
