Daily Lift #1174

Portable Mental Computer

Your personal archives and library of joyful moments are stored in your portable G-d-given mental computer. So are your moments of courage, serenity, love for the Creator, and love for kindness.

Knowing that your mind can access the memories of joy and other positive traits makes the entire process of being more joyful much easier.

Just knowing this piece of information is insufficient, however. We must draw our mind’s attention to the joy that is already stored within.

As you continue to read this book and apply the exercises, you will gain a greater awareness of what you can do to improve your skill of creating more moments of joy, courage, love, and serenity.

((Life is Now: Creating moments of joy, courage, kindness, and serenity, p. 100))
