I could stay in bed, but I want to go to work to earn money, because I want to pay the bills so I can have a roof over my head. I don't HAVE to, of
course, because nobody has to do anything if they don't want.
I wake up and get up because life is a beautiful experience waiting for you. All the pain, suffering, sadness, and turmoil is all in your head. You
can choose to look at the world as a cold, harsh, unfair place, but you would then be boiling it all down to nothing more than a lifeless machine. The
world is full of life and love. YOU are everything there ever was and ever will be. Once you begin to appreciate how important you are, regardless of
the illusion you may have of independent existence, you not only change, but so does the world.
Be thankful for what you have, and want nothing more than that. Ask not for the day to be sunny, ask instead yourself that you may weather the cold
and the rain through the strength within you. Be thankful for where you are, because here now is the only place you can be. Be thankful for who you
are, because you couldn't and will never be anything else but you.
Do we need God and faith to find the strength to get up and get through the day? Perhaps you may, perhaps not, Whatever gets you through the day
isn't important in that context. What is truely important is that you live life. Experiencing is all you can do. Enjoy everything now, don't linger
upon the past or fear for the future. Don't make the world your Hell, make it your Heaven.
