Change the Way You See
Another way to keep your soul alive is to Change the Way You See.
Anthony de Mello has this story in The Heart of the Enlightened:
Traveler: What kind of weather are we going to have today?
Shepherd: The kind of weather I like.
Traveler: How do you know it will be the kind of weather you like?
Shepherd: Having found our, sir, I cannot always get what I like, I have learned always to like what I get. So I am quite sure we will have the kind of weather I like.

One of them shared this that I pass on to you today: "You are swimming in a thick sea of overwhelming richness that is this moment! Wake up to how truly blessed you are to be right where you happen to be!!
