Optimism springs from certain knowledge that life is always improving. How do I know life is improving? I choose it and I open myself to receive it. Optimism is an attitude that I choose to walk in. My optimism comes from my understanding that regardless of anything that I see around me, underneath it all I feel that consciousness is ever-expanding. I have a fundamental belief that I live in a progressive rather than degenerative universe. Any destruction that I see is only proof that transformation is at hand—in the same way that winter’s destruction is evidence that spring’s new growth is coming.
Mahatma Gandhi said, “My optimism rests on my belief in the infinite possibilities of the individual to develop nonviolence. The more you develop it in your own being the more infectious it becomes till it overwhelms your surroundings and by and by might oversweep the world.”
Is the glass half empty or half full? It’s full. If one half is water, the other half is air. This is a facct. The glass is always full. I use this understanding to cultivate optimism as a practice in my life.
Today I examine my attitudes about life and look for areas where there is pessimism. I liken my heart to the glass that appeared to be half empty and realize that my heart is full. It is full of love, that which I can express easily and that which is opening and expanding. I allow myself to imagine a more loving possibility in all areas of my life. I take action in that direction and move the world in the direction of optimism based on belief and practice.
I am receptive to the infinite possibility of good in my life.
