"Goodness matters, for goodness sake!"
(Happy Musings is a newspaper feature syndicated by King Features that I create each day to remind us all that “Life is wonderful!.”
As I woke up this morning with the remnants of a mildly disturbing dream lingering in my head, I thought that it would be nice to have a perfect bedtime story to read to myself every night before dropping off to sleep. It would set things right for the mind. Naturally a prayer or two are helpful as is the practice of counting one’s blessings. But I thought that a magical bedtime story would be wonderful, one that went deep into oneself and planted the perfect thoughts.
Then I wrote it.
Here it is:
There is a wonderful plan of which you are a part. It is to bring goodness into the world, into your country, into your town, into your home, into your life. You, like all people, are the container of this goodness. You have the ability to spread goodness wherever you go and wherever you are.
The plan includes you, but is not about you. It is about goodness, and the more you realize this, the better you feel. The better you feel the more goodness you spread. When you think of yourself, think of goodness. When you think of your work, think of goodness. When you think of the people around you, think of goodness. When you think of the circumstances in your life, think of goodness.
This is why you are here – to be good, think good, do good and feel good.
What could be better than that?
That is my story. I’m going to read it every night and see how it affects my life. I invite you to do the same and then let me know how it affects your life as well. It is based on the absolute truth.
“Life is wonderful! Don’t forget it.”
Please make a comment if you like. The more happy people, the better!
