Do Your Heart a Favor

On this day it would be good to do a favor for your heart and get in the habit of doing it every day. It will not only improve the quality of your life, it might even improve the amount of life you have. 

Your heart was born in your body - ja - bringing with it joy, happiness and an ability to be flexible in feelings. Because of life and its complications and the way we do things here on Earth, often there are burdens and unhappiness and a tendency to think and/or worry about the past and project some of that worry into the present or even future. 

So, on this day when we give thanks and appreciate what we have, who we have or even where we have, I also would recommend that you allow your heart to feel grateful. When you feel grateful, make it a feeling you totally feel. 

Consider it like an actor’s workshop where actor’s are encouraged to not only portray something but to literally be it and the way you convince people in the audience that you are something when you’re an actor is that you become it. This is why some actors are famous for being a bit odd while they’re working in a movie or a theatrical production because they don’t choose to shake off completely the role they’re playing. 

So I’m not suggesting that you all become actors, though some of you will, I am suggesting however that you allow your heart to perform its original personality when you were born and when you’re grateful to feel it completely and allow your heart to emit those feelings of happiness so you can feel them in your whole body and allow yourself to be gratefulness not just think it. 

Hope you have a happy day. Goodlife to you all.

Thank you sir for this important message. It's easy to forget this in the hustle and bustle of life. It is necessary and important to this in my opinion (feeling ones feelings of gratitude) because they will have to offset the not so pleasant experiences which are difficult to transform (try as we might)
Be that as it may I hope overall that gratitude and a desire to improve benevolently all life will always win through. Many thanks. Good life.

I guess this is about Thanksgiving. We don't have it here, but I wish we did - it is a very nice notion. I suppose the turkeys are grateful we don't though :D But the grateful thing is so important - thanks for the reminder & the concept that it is our heart's natural state...what a lovely way to think of it! I always feel so good when I remember to be grateful & I will keep trying to remember to
do it...for my heart's sake :)
