You, like all others, are seeking the joy of living.Ernest Holmes
You wish to be needed, to be loved, to be included
in the great drama of life.
The Science of Mind helps us to see how to efficiently use the mind to create a life of well-being, self-sufficiency, and joy. The best use of the mind is to engage it in the now moment, the task at hand, and to be fully engaged, and compassionately responsive.
Quite often we find ourselves misusing our mind, keeping it immersed in thoughts of the past, the memory. Or in the future, the imagination. When we are thinking our life should be better or different and we have repetitive thoughts of the past, this can cause mental patterns of regret, shame, and discontent. And with repetitive thoughts of the future, this can cause mental patterns of frustration, comparison, “not enough”, “something is wrong”, and dissatisfaction.
Being focused in the now moment is the sweet-spot, where the joy lives. Joy isn’t experienced in the past or the future, it is always in the present moment. Befriend your mind, use your memory for thinking about the good times, and use your imagination for visioning a bright future. Keep your mind focused on what’s working, what’s good in your life, and respond with love and you will unleash joy into the world!
