The Dhammapada, a Buddhist scripture, reassures us:
One day of contemplation
is better than a hundred years of thoughtlessness.
One day of wisdom
is better than a hundred years of ignorance.
One day of effort
is better than a hundred years of laziness.
I like this message. I like it because, frankly, I sometimes seem to be in “a hundred years” of something other than my Divine Identity. How about you?
I like Unity’s “Law of Mind Action,” which states that my predominant expectations and outlook on life translate into matching experiences. I tend to get what I most expect. I tend to experience life as good when I view the world as “good.” When I judge the world as disappointing, I tend to have disappointing experiences. This law is a law because it works for everyone, every time. Which is GOOD NEWS! It means that when I redirect my attention, when I choose to focus on the good, I can rest assured I will begin to experience life as good. I am the author of my experience. I AM the authority in my life.
Divine Life is my life.
Well-being is natural to me.
This is my one day to live well.
I choose this day to be well in every way.
And so it is.
