the greatest gift

Today we ask that you follow good feelings.

What makes you feel good?

This is not about physical hedonism, although it is good to do things that feel good and nourishing for your physical body.

By “feeling good,” what is meant is activity that feels nourishing, healthy, playful, generous, and with a sense of ease or lightness.

Such things continue to feel good when you are no longer doing them.  

For example, a massage continues to feel good when you are no longer experiencing the massage.  It continues to benefit your body.

However, overindulging in ice cream will not feel good when you are no longer experiencing the taste of it.  It will not benefit your body.

So, to clarify, you are asked to follow what feels good and is good for you.

Many people are so focused on their problems and negativity that they do not pay attention to what feels good.  They are desensitized to such things.  They may be trained to feel guilty around feeling good.  

They may confuse things that feel good and are unhealthy, like eating too much ice cream, with things that feel good and are healthy, like taking a walk or meditating.

Commonly people believe that they “do not have time” to do such things.  They have time to scarf down a candy bar in the middle of an unpleasant day, but they don’t have time to go for a brief walk in the fresh air.

You have time to do what is healthy, nourishing and generous for your body, mind and soul.

You may object that you are too busy, and have too many obligations to other people.

All the beings you feel responsible for will only be helped and served when you take time to do what is healthy, generous and nourishing for you.

So focus now on what makes you feel good.  Truly good.  What creates genuine, lasting good feeling in your body, mind and spirit.

Give yourself more time to do those things.

Make sure you take at least a few minutes to do something that feels purely good and healthy this way every day.

Allow yourself to really enjoy what nourishes you, and makes you feel good.

If you want to improve your life experience, really it is this simple:

Give yourself more time to do what feels nourishing, playful, and generous, with a sense of ease and lightness.

The more of this experience you give to yourself, the more you shall have.  

And you will be able to share it with others.

These are the qualities to look for:

Is the activity nourishing?

Is it healthy?

Is it playful?

Is it generous?

Is there a sense of ease and lightness?

Whatever in your life creates this feeling for you — do that.  Do it every day.  Keep coming back to it.  Keep connecting to it.

Whatever you make a habit of connecting to energetically expands.  

Most people are so consumed by struggle, problems, and negativity that there is no room in their lives for healthy flow.

The greatest gift you can give yourself is the allowance to do what feels good and nourishing for your body, mind, and spirit.

It is the greatest gift you can give the people in your life.

You will be a much better parent, spouse, partner, and/or creator if you teach yourself to follow energy that feels good and nourishing.

This can transform your life experience.
