This is my “3G” technology for the art of living. I may find a way to enhance it — to upgrade it — but it will never fail me or go out of style:
Giving – approach each day with an attitude of Giving. What can I do for others to help them bear their burdens? Don’t worry about what they can do for me; in time, the Universe will provide what I need. By focusing my attention outward and staying aware of those around me, I find opportunities to give and accept beneficial Karma.
Grateful – think about what I have, not about what I don’t have. Each day, acknowledge people for whom to be thankful. Accept gifts and blessings that come my way, without wishing for more, and know that I am worthy to receive them.
Graceful – Give and be Grateful with style and grace. Do so quietly, without excess words or fanfare, wanting no reward or recognition except that which comes from within my own soul. This is the part I have to work on. Some days I am graceful, and some days I am incredibly awkward and childish. True grace is difficult to master.
My journey at this point is largely about Acceptance — letting go of old, unhealthy ways of doing and thinking and discovering paths toward my higher self while acknowledging that I will never be Perfect, never master it all. But I can try. And I must try.
Never give up myself, being myself, reaching for my higher self. Rely on my 3G technology.
