What is our everyday mind-set? Is our attention always drawn to the flaws in people and things? Are we quick to notice that the soup is salty and the chairs uncomfortable? If that is our mental habit, the ugliness and human failure all around us will also be apparent. Our self images will wear those same faces: ugly, sad, failed!
We come up with a diffrent picture, however, if we learn to look for the good. Then we see other commuters on the freeway as fellow workers rather than as wheeled antagonists. Then we become aware of the care and love that cooked our dinner or bought us a birthday card. When we focus on the beauty in the world, knowing well that the opposite also exists, our self images shine in the same golden light. Let's take charge of our thinking habits.
