How You View the World is Who You Are (A very short New Thought)

Share Your Heart/Mind/Spirit
Ralph Waldo Emerson put it this way:

"People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character."

Do you hear folks complaining about all the challenges around them, or how rotten the world is, or how evil people, politicians, clergy, CEOs (PickYourOwnHere) are and how they are bringing everything down? Maybe it's you doing the bitching?

It's so easy to tear down. The question is, what are you doing to build up? To be certain, you cannot fix a problem until the problem is acknowledged. But complaining while remaining in your personal comfort zone is certainly not the best way to help change happen.

Three quick ways to be part of the solution:
  • Look for ways to help
  • Look for ways to serve
  • Look for ways to soothe
Simple enough?
